Oppenheimer & Overdrafts
Created by m.moebs on 8/6/2023 7:55:36 AM

At the end of World War II at the movies: ticket 34¢, bottle of coke a nickel, and popcorn a quarter.
Oppenheimer was considered a hero for building the bomb which stopped the war.
And overdrafts were only for the rich.
Times have changed. Yet if your OD price is $20 or higher learn how to make more for less.

It cost me $14.50 for 1 ticket to see the movie Oppenheimer and this did not include a coke or popcorn. It was well worth it. The movie is very powerful and inspired the premise of this story – what I paid in total to see the movie is about the same as the current price of an overdraft.
