  • I heard this word in an interview with Ramsey on 60 Minutes. I'm sure he said "plasectomy" (without the "t"). When I looked up the word, I found it spelled both ways so I went with what I thought was his pronunciation.

  • Excellent! Wonder why it isn't "plastectomy" (with an extra "t")?

    October 1, 2007

  • According to Dave Ramsey, the chopping up of one's credit cards in an effort to get out of debt.
