Re: 3 yrs to FI: ertyu's journal

The first is to buy in a newly constructed building ("new" = after the transition to market economy). These often look nice at the time of purchase but are already starting to show issues. Capitalism incentivises builders to skimp on materials: it's very common to claim you invested huge ...

Re: Crusader's Journal

@ertyu Thank you for that. I shall try some of these recipes this month and report back! Yes, lentils do feel at home: https://www.bigoven.com/recipe/pasulj-serbian-bean-soup/121471 But, the recipe for Serbian pasulj is a bit too complicated for my attention span right now. Some of the simpler stuff...

some lentils which can be boiled relatively quickly
I also like lentils, but I don't know how to cook them. What are some of the things you can do with them? The simpler the better, with my cooking skills :?

Re: Crusader's Journal

November 2020 - $3131 (month 2/60) Not happy with how I did this month. I utterly failed when it comes to cooking my own food (and part of my trip to Serbia is included in the cost, with the 2nd part coming up in the December credit card statement). I don't really know what to do about this. Orderin...

Re: Intelligent Speculation: Physics, critical thinking, and personal finance (interview)

I listened to the whole thing in the background. I learned a few new things (e.g. Lawrence Kohlberg's stages of moral development). I checked out his channel in general, and while I really like his mission, I think that the people who need to learn what he is preaching, won't get to it. A problem of...

Re: Jordan Peterson

@Alphaville Ah ok, I think I see where the problem is. I agree that sometimes you have to simplify stuff using analogies and metaphors etc. But, for that to work, you need to actually trust the person that is doing it for you. You are placing a bet with yourself that if you took the time the expert ...

@7Wannabe5 Haha, yes that was exactly what I was wondering!!! Anyway, you don't need to change your viewpoint in order to change how you communicate, and if you do, it doesn't mean you are self-conscious. Quite the opposite, I would think. Having said that, I must admit that I do find deviants from ...

Re: Jordan Peterson

like didn't your parents teach you this? [...] it's quite clear that the answer to the parental question in many cases is a solid no as parents were off to dual income and the kids were raised in institutions. It's not just that. Not everyone has optimal parents. Sometimes kids come from broken hom...

Re: Jordan Peterson

with žižek, he’s read more stuff than most, and he’s read things most of us can’t even understand, so to hear him spout about it freely can be grating i suppose. Ah! Here we go. This is one of the things that bothers me with Peterson as well. He says something complicated, and people tend to conclu...

On the topic of Eastern Europe, I don't know where ertyu is from, but I often think about the difference between Serbia (where I am originaly from and visit often) and Canada (where I have lived for a long time). In Canada, the average person can have a better absolute quality of life (get a good jo...
