Re: 3.5 hrs of Live Youtube with Paul Wheaton

Anybody interested in sharing a pledge so that we can get the book for a very reasonable amount of money? Because of steep shipping? This is making me debate ebook but every time I have got an ebook rather than physical copy for this reason I have regretted it within a year so will probably go for ...

Re: Greetings from London

Welcome! Nice to see another UK person and londoner.

I agree there is this odd situation of being able to do with rather low expenses in london but relatively high taxes. Although there are at least a lot of tax free saving vehicles available.

Re: Working hours

CL is Exactly right and certainly also true of the UK. Although there is a preference for full timers most places are so short if you push you can pretty much dictate terms if you don't mind where you do it. Or, work agency and DIY it. I have plenty of colleagues who have done at least a few years o...

Re: Mens Fashion

I don't know what this means. Explain yourself! I felt this could do with potentially more of an explanation. Now this is looking at it form a British point of view terminology/expression might differ slightly. A Dress shirt will normally mean a shirt that was primarily intended to be worn with a s...

Re: The atmosphere of the forum...

@Fish I cans see your concern but I think expecting (pretty much anywhere) to be entirely k-level when it involves primarily/exclusively free community generated content is unlikely to occur. As Jacob says the level of conversation then becomes too low for it to function as a community and it revert...

Re: Random Relationship Derailment Thread

@Augustus The point I am trying to make is going beyond recognising the issue is exists is how it is best to move forward to actually help solve the problem . The abrasive defensiveness is going to mean even those who might read the forums etc. are not going to feel particularly inclined to comment ...

Re: Random Relationship Derailment Thread

@Augustus I can agree that what she has written about certain individuals is not very nice and is almost certainly filled with some half truths/exargerations for either comedic or outrage generating effects. This does not invalidate all other points. It is more specifically the parts of the article ...

Re: Random Relationship Derailment Thread

I don't approve of the never helpful ad hominem elements of the article. Likewise ad hominems at the author are unhelpful. But pointing out the FIREsphere is male dominated and regularly has people complaining about (lack of) relationships is fair. Then pointing out this community tends to look for ...

Re: Random Relationship Derailment Thread

@7wb5 Thanks that gives me some things to try. Not sure if trying to improve a partnership (?optimise, ?over-optomise :? ) is necessarily healthy or not, even if primarily focusing on my actions. I hope it is @Fish excellent find and it is true, although perhaps my only accusation is it being an exc...

Re: Random Relationship Derailment Thread

P's have a very limited ability to focus, so when a J demands that a P use some of that hard to summon up focus on something as trivial as dishwasher loading, it's like being asked to flush your own goals down the toilet. It sometimes makes you want to scream "Leave me alone. I don't care. I don't ...

Re: Fox's Journey: And Onto the Sunlight!

I am not that much further along than you (although 1 'stage' up from your cash descriptions). The money doesn't make me happy. Hitting a milestone feels nice but that bit is somewhat of an automatic process, insofar as it is a number that trends up and at some point will be a sufficiently big ball ...

Re: Crazylemon's Journal

@bigato

I think it is more a shorthand for being worried I would expect him to agree with it regardless of actually doing so. Or maybe that it might precipitate more tidying which is probably his most hated household chore. I doubt it is to be taken completely literally.

@Chris yes it is. Although in this case it doesn't stop the complaining just changed the nature to wishing this wasn't so. Half win.

Re: Fox's Journey: And Onto the Sunlight!

I have had the odd day of thinking 'screw it' in a similar way to that you describe. Although not often. But then I am happy to say 'no' to the have you done yet questions and then list 5+ reasons why. Tend to get left alone then. I accept this isn't possible in jobs where there is less autonomy/inc...
