Scary stuff. Apparently there was a segment on the news today about that stuff.

All in all, I feel you deserve to have your money taken if you trust to place it in a bank. Just the way the world is man. Put it in your pocket, after all you surely worked your arse off for it, right? Why let everyone else take it?
It's a lot easier for you to lose it all keeping it in your pocket. Robbery? Fire? Misplacement? Storm? Yeah the small percentage the banks charge is a pain, but at least it is insurance. I rarely keep more than $20 on me (for gas since I do not use my debit card at gas stations) because I KNOW I will lose it.
