Re: Dennis Meadows, Co-Author of Limits To Growth: Peak Prosperity Interview

American's don't have to "believe" in renewable energy future, instead just the cost of converting to a used electric vehicle becomes more economical than an ICE engine with the infrastructure to support it.* Which is a benefit of the capitalistic system as more of the Great Plains states become mor...

Re: Are tattoos stupid?

Depends, on the person but honestly? Should you give a fuck about their opinion*? Your body, your life, and it is not like you are smoking a pack a day. And besides tattoos are part of human culture like beer and sex. A ancient tattoo'ed corpse of a lady in Siberia is proof enough of that. Personall...

@c4rat0n1a:
Thanks for the link.

Interesting fact about cassava. I am still astonished how many everyday crops come from the Americas that nearly every country in the world uses.

Tepary Beans Devil's Claw Growing Crops in a desert or semi-arid is insane, so finding beans/legumes that grows well in it, providing rich amount of protein?

Re: Western USA Drought

@ZAFCorrection: A cost controls measure that would work, imo, is to handle it like the they are starting to handle it like coastal cities in the SE in path of hurricanes: take the buyouts or risk your livelihood on being uninsured. Reason for that is at a certain point it becomes a burden for the st...

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

Congrats on he choice of not doing your PhD. Welcome to the club! :p

Getting a master's is usually the best option and most optimum route for long-term financial success in comparison to full PhD as it unlocks the main barrier for higher income levels in the future ahead of time.

Re: Why The US Will Never Have High-Speed Rail

As someone who has known people to drive through the I-45, this high-speed rail is something that is needed as even with seemingly constant road expansion growing, traffic is still terrible on I-45. This will hopefully alleviate the constant need for road expansion on I-45, as the induced demand eff...

Yeah, none of this seems to be city "steading" as described in the post.

@TheWanderingScholar, Hei. Thanks for stopping by. I really like your journey and wish my kids would be as smart as young as you were. (Too late for me.) @Vaikeasti: Kiitos.

Re: Guest post on GRS: A ten year update

Agreed. Sometimes philanthropy is offering labor and knowledge to those who need it. Sometimes is offering a helping hand or ear in times of great personal strife. Sometimes in a world where loneliness is the norm, someone to be pillar to lean upon is needed.

Re: If you could go back and give your 17 year old self one book, what would it be?

17 year old me already bough the ERE book, so I would not give him a book. Instead, I would just be an ear for him to talk to. He was really stupid and too idealistic sometimes, alongside having too much anxiety. Also tell him college is fun and don't be an idiot and go to trade school even though i...

Re: YAW Journal (Vol. 3: Moving On)

Well to put it summarize. I can't find a job worth a damn in Europe in my field or makes use of my skillset. And honestly I want to move on with my life. So it is time to leave Estonia and head back home where I can actually make money to actually FIRE.
