Since 1976, John Baker has run the Bakers Junction Railroad Museum in Smithville, Indiana. The museum - which operates a haunted house in old railcars - has fallen on tough financial times, so Baker's turned to an unusual source of fundraising capital. That is, his own severed thumb.

All those mortgages that have gone into foreclosure and turned our economy into a tailspin got you down? Can you appreciate a guy who knows how to make lemonade when life offers us lemons? Here's a guy who was able to pick up a McMansion for just $16.

The latest casualty of our blighted economy? Our long-time attempt to find some neighbors. If you've been running @home all these years, may as well shut it all down once you're done with your current batch.

Borders bookstore has filed bankruptcy, and will be closing 200 of their remaining 630 stores. For now. I'm sure there'll be more.

The beggar with the golden voice, who last week managed to escape the bonds of poverty and homelessness found himself held by LA Police after a fracas with one of his daughters. Is this the first sign of a rags to riches to rags story in the making?

If you're fortunate enough to ride out the economic downturn without having to live in a cardboard box, you could probably stand to start giving back to your community. If you're also something of a slacker, then this is the guide for you.

It's becoming more and more common in this blighted economic landscape for smaller towns and cities to save money by letting their paved roads revert back to gravel - jokingly called the 'stone age', it says far more of our future than our past.

Got a CitiBank credit card? Look to your mail for a notice that they've just jacked everyone's interest rate to 29.99%. It's legal, but clearly an act of desperation. Best bet is to transfer your balance to a card with cheaper interest, and make Citi's insolvency even worse.
