Re: Seppia's journal

Your timing is excellent. "it's better to be lucky than good" Jokes aside, looks like after the rather unlucky timing of our move to Hong Kong, Karma gave us back a little something. We often rent to people in your situation. The offer letter is proof enough for us. I wonder if it is diff...

Re: Social Contagion

Trick question, all the Crossfitters will be letting everyone know they Crossfit, allowing the rest of us to avoid them. :lol: More seriously, this describes bank runs. And toilet paper shortages. And recessions. And eventually we all need to get to our money or wipe ourselves or build up and survi...

GBP collapsing, Yen collapsing, all non-usd currencies getting pummelled.
Fed powering forward while we are clearly in a recession already (just look at container rates for one example)

Re: Seppia's journal

And just like that… We’re almost there. We got our US visas significantly earlier than expected, a couple weeks ago (VS a forecast of “end of November at the earliest”), so early that we are unprepared to leave. I’ll head to FL by myself alone in early November, with DW and DS joining a couple weeks...

Re: ERE Motivation:

I come from a semi-upper middle class family in Italy but culturally fairly frugal by normal standards. When I started working I had a bit of the typical lifestyle inflation, but in fairness I was making very little money so every increase in spending did actually bring a better quality of life. Eve...

Re: Your Personal Operating System

I have the impression we may be assigning too much importance to computer science these days. "Computers" may impact most/all of the stuff we do, but still sit pretty high the Maslow pyramid (and I'm someone who thinks a good wifi definitely should be located lower than "self esteem&q...

Re: USA ERE Locations

I think ERE people are better equipped than most at anticipating trouble. Similarly to how almost everyone here was prepared for covid in Feb 2020 while most of the world was oblivious to the potential threat. It took my wife, a son and myself one week from decision to actually leaving HK, for examp...

Re: USA ERE Locations

My approach is slightly different, but I must have some gipsy ancestor as I love to move every now and then. With DW we decided to pick a SHTF place close to family/friends, as small as possible and in an area that should be slightly less impacted by climate change*. That is our "backup plan&qu...

Re: Will Gas Stations Exist In 15 Years?

I would add: in my view humanity's superpower is its adaptability. There's hedonic adaptation and there's the reverse as well, we learn quickly to live in conditions that only a couple months prior were considered complex. So I would imagine most people in a western democracy to be able to cope with...

Re: Will Gas Stations Exist In 15 Years?

I suspect the war and ever increasing petrol costs will further fuel demand for electric vehicles. There may be a point of critical mass where EV render much of the ICE infrastructure uneconomic and force universal adoption. Finding a petrol station might be like finding somewhere to develop a Koda...

Besides, Putin needs the euros to finance his war just as much as Europe needs the gas.
I’m afraid at current prices he’s making the same bottom line on 20% of the volumes he did pre-war.
