Re: Polyamory Support Group

@RoamingFrancis: Twins separated at birth are far more likely to choose similar careers and brands of beer than similar spouses. The same rule of thumb holds true for individuals choosing first and second spouse. However, it is likely to choose within your own social circle or peer group or simply t...

Re: Polyamory Support Group

At your age any situation that resembles a college town environment would be your best bet. For better or worse, dating apps are prevalent these days, but they work much better for even old women than young men. Identical twins separated at birth studies indicate that who we end up with as partners ...

Re: 1 Jacob Adjusted For Inflation (JAFI)

@ducknald_don: Right, but the purchasing power parity in the U.S. does not directly correlate with total global GDP expressed in $U.S. It is hard to wrap head around, but basically it is the difference between recognizing that the lifestyle which costs approximately $11,000 year in the U.S. would be...

Re: 1 Jacob Adjusted For Inflation (JAFI)

@oldbeyond: I generally agree, but there can also be a sort of ratcheting decision matrix on buying green as efficiency improves. For instance, it might cost me more to repair the grid electrical service to my tiny house than to construct a solar system adequate to my level of usage given alternativ...

Re: 1 Jacob Adjusted For Inflation (JAFI)

I was researching the numbers myself, and I am wondering whether the Eco-Jacob (as opposed to the Frugal Jacob) should be calculated in International (PPP) $$ rather than U.S. $ given that the other factors are global? This makes a fairly significant difference since International Eco-Jacob would be...

Re: M2aS’ Journal

I think maybe you live in the same neck of the woods as my adult children and one of them is in the local LGBQT support choir and otherwise involved in the community if your daughter would like some contacts. I was over there last night watching their performance for Pride Week.

Re: AE's Journal Round 5 - Finding Freedom To

Maybe try to come up with some more adjectives that best describe your preferred aesthetic? For instance, I think of my masculine energy as being more juvenile, like a 12 year old Tom Sawyer looking for fun or freedom from dull convention, so even though I am a 56 years old, I frequently wear overal...

Re: A Jacob Mention

Being an 85 and thinking you’re an 80 has more chance of success in anything in life (including understanding ere) than being a 150 and thinking you’re a 180. The latter are the ones that always end up self destructing/shooting themselves in the foot I think that there is some truth to this observa...

@white belt: True, but in other lower energy/relatively higher population situations, a lot of humans were the serfs and a few humans were the lords. The word “husband” is derived from the concept of having enough independence/assets to be bound only to your own house. The word “family” originally r...

Yet, I myself, can’t consistently bring my expenses (or rough energy flow equivalent) down to 1 Jacob or less. Maybe the general p...

Re: A Jacob Mention

In the real world, at the most micro size of business, “capitalist” micro-business owners do not plan that way. Labor is an input they purchase on the open market in competition with other employers and opportunities for potential employees just like other inputs. When you are an owner/operator or g...

Re: Methods and examples of highly developed social capital

Why I am currently planning on developing two different co-housing/work compounds with the last of my vigor. One in the city with other humans interested in permaculture and one in more rural/recreational area with my sisters. There are only 5 members of next generation and they are all adults who h...

Re: White Belt's Military Journey to FI

One of the most commented upon columns in Savage Love was one where a guy revealed that he had married very thin woman for class/status signaling reasons, but he was truly sexually attracted to thick women, so was having secret affairs with them...
