Re: Operation Bail The Parents Out Planning

Naturally, I tend to take control of everything and put it on a spreadsheet, so I have a tendency to overstep in the name of financial solvency. >:D Each time you overstep and take control today you are sending them a message that you will do so in the future. Another way to tackle the problem woul...

Re: Will the cis-female bubble ever pop?

It depends on the criteria you are using in your rating. Looks? Good provider? Confidence? Charisma/Personality? Kindness? A cis-male who is an 8 in kindness and confidence as well as a 9 in situation-appropriate goofiness and silliness gets a big points boost in overall attractiveness because women...

Re: Hussman shows a risk of 50-66% [US stock]market losses

Your worst nightmare. What if you retired at a stock market peak and continued to live off 4% a year?

Re: Lending a girlfriend money

For those who are adamantly against, what amount would make it okay to give her the money? $100? $500? How long would the relationship have to be to make it okay to give her the $1500? 1 year? Marriage? Never? He seems to respect her despite her inability to save. What if she is the love of his life...

Re: IPCC Report

Yesterday the Union of Concerned Scientists reversed their position on nuclear power. Decommissioned plants are being replaced by fossil fuels so they now want to keep nuke plants open.

Re: Lending a girlfriend money

Some things are more important than money. Do you see the relationship going anywhere? Do you see the potential that your girlfriend will someday get her financial situation together?

Re: Deep Adaptation

Is multi-generational adaptation possible? There are so many unknown variables.

The first adaptation should be to not have a child. How could anyone who knows the scientific consensus and grasps the severity of the predictions do otherwise?

Re: Nothing to do in retirement

He told me that I was more likely to find fulfillment and balance in retirement if I focused on ...

Government cannot fix this, it never could. This isn't a group coordination problem. It never was. But right now, all across the world, a lot of people are suffering and dieing. I'm not sure how much more I should care about the suffering of theoretical people from a problem that cannot be solved t...

Re: IPCC Report

brute continues to be a "luke-warmist", even (or especially after) the new IPCC report. the climate is probably warming, and humans probably contributed to it. it's probably going to be fine, unless the government gets involved. (especially since the "expert advice" from the IPCC is literally genoc...

This is a very complicated kind of clusterfuck. Interesting times! I'm morbidly curious to see it but I won't live long enough.

I have already lived outside of Denmark for too many years to receive anything from Danish social security, even if I move back now. Conversely, I do have enough points to get US SS.
