C’mon kiddies, get your 5,000% APR payday loans! At first glance, the bright blue London storefront with a hand-painted technicolor scene of a cartoon cityscape in the window — complete with a smiling yellow mascot — looks like some sort of kid’s toy store or maybe a daycare center. That is, until you see the sign that reads, “Payday Loans 4 Kids.”
The recently opened Pocket Money Loans, with its offer of 5,000% APR loans (available in only 3 minutes!) for the youngsters, is horrifying some Londoners — or at least those who don’t realize that this is not an actual predatory lending operation.

What's happening: Eating sugar causes inflammation all over the body; you're noticing it under the eyes because the skin is especially thin and prone to swelling.
What to try: "Whenever we ask patients to give up sugar for any health issue, the first thing they notice is that under-eye swelling immediately improves," says Patricia K.
"The unexamined life is not worth living." This statement, widely attributed to Socrates, is often offered as a bland, feel-goody bit of wisdom. It's not hard to imagine this advice on a poster showing a cute cat holding a magnifying glass. But for Socrates, it was a matter of fundamental importance — indeed, he died willingly for having led the examined life.
