Re: ERE Youtube interview

I don't mind people making money spreading the message as long as it isn't manipulative, because if they can make money spreading the message this enables them to spend more time doing this without taking a hit financially. For regular ads I don't feel any different between seeing a commercial on TV...

Re: Gold

Too bad I dislike the way gold jewellery looks. It just looks gauche to me. I much prefer silver's appearance. I guess for those that feel similar about gold jewellery you could just keep it locked away, but at that point what's the point in having it in an inconvenient shape such as jewellery. As f...

Re: IPCC Report

Serious concerns among environementalist about nuclear power plants, are more about wastes than accidents. Maybe among academics and serious environmentalists, but I doubt it among the voting public which would actually be the ones catered to by politicians. Also as for waste the benefit of nuclear...

Re: IPCC Report

That's exactly what my point was. Nuclear fails are impressive and imposing, but fossil fuel use actually kills far more people, but we don't look at it the same as it happens slowly every day with people dying sooner than they would have through indirect means. When x% of people die sooner than the...

Re: Cumuru's Journal

Sounds like a lot has happened since your last posts. One thing that might be happening is that since you are just out of college, but due to your prior experience "overqualified" for entry level positions. They might be looking for someone that has less on their resume, because they want to pay 60k...

Re: ..it was never anything but a jerry rig of presumption and dumb will...

It also depends a lot where you stay. Even in places that are generally very different to our own it's easy to go to a resort location which is nothing like the local culture and never experience something all that different from any other location. I do understand the feeling of having done a decen...

Re: IPCC Report

The problem is the people concerned about global warming are generally the same people that are concerned about nuclear power. The group that is both concerned about global warning and either not concerned about nuclear power or less concerned about it than global warming is very small and doesn't h...

Re: ERE shaming

My own parents have been quite supportive. I don't think they completely agree with my way of thinking, I suspect it's more of a we would rather we feel he is too serious about his finances rather than not serious enough e.g. Getting in to lots of debt and not saving for later in life. It doesn't hu...

Re: Lending a girlfriend money

Also taking the human/non human part out of the equation. If a close friend of yours had an accident/illness and needed to borrow a decent sum to pay for medical care that would be very different than your girlfriend of 6 months asking you lend a similar sum because her friend got injured/ill. Chanc...

@cmonkey

Those definitely would be some of the questions to ask. Medical costs definitely have a way of snowballing it's something that can't be taken care of completely by the procedure.

I would say by being somewhere between 1 and 2 it is neither 1 or 2 and thus a different option.

Re: Lending a girlfriend money

If the $1500 were for a lifetime supply of lentils, who here would chip in? How does that shift your perspective? One act of geneorsity may pay dividends into the future, then again. Maybe not. I would say the 2 aren't quite comparable. First off, the lentils would be a one time cost saving expense...

Re: Lending a girlfriend money

I would say first of it would be unreasonable for her to expect you to cough up the money without even asking so I probably wouldn't even bring it up unless she does. What has she done so far to be able to afford it herself? Others have mentioned attempting to get a loan if a regular one isn't possi...
