Thank Zeus I'm American

A few months ago, you made a loan to a student on Vittana. Guess what? We've got great news.

Hi e,

A few months ago, you made a loan on Vittana to Khoirul Anam, a student in Indonesia who wanted to study Mechanical Engineering.

Guess what?

Khoirul just made his first repayment! As one of his lenders, we wanted you to be the first to know.

In total, this month you've received $1.05 in repayments from 1 student . Every month from now until they're repaid, you'll receive an email from Vittana notifying you of any repayments you've received.

When I started reading this email, I thought they'd tell me that the entire $25 had been repaid. Silly me. $1.05 a month is a lot. I should just leave my scholarship-sponsored apartment and go to my government-sponsored school and learn something.


  1. Very nice. Are you going to loan out more money?

  2. When I'm rich, famous, and philanthropic, these people will definitely be on my list.

  3. Or maybe when those you sponsor are rich, famous, and philanthropic they'll give you a very nice "thank you" in their public speeches.

  4. Of course you are.
    By the way, why Zeus? Buddha not good enough for you? Or Odin, Thor, Anansi, Ra, Bob Dylan...

  5. And why is "God" better than Zeus, or Thor, or Odin, etc?

  6. I'm trying to think which god from American Gods I like the best, so I could start thanking him or her. But I didn't really like any of them. maybe czernebog. But he wimped out in the end and became belebog, so forget him.

  7. Yeah. Thank Zeus you're not an illegal immigrant either in America. They have to pay for each semester up front, with the added burn of out of state tuition.
