Re: The doctor who beat big tobacco - Divestment, investment, corporate social responsibility and pensions

I guess if I don't feel that tobacco companies are misleading their customers of the risks (was the case years ago but not now), why would I have a problem investing in them? "Globally it’s estimated that 80-100,000 children start smoking every day – so much for the notion of smoking being based on...

The doctor who beat big tobacco - Divestment, investment, corporate social responsibility and pensions

"When Dr Bronwyn King discovered her pension fund was investing in the cigarette companies that were killing her cancer patients, she was staggered. And she knew she had to act"

Re: Man who quit high-flying job to go off the grid and live in a tree house

Moral: Don't have kids.
Kids are not a valid excuse not to have and live wild dreams. Live your dreams while kids are young, live your dreams when kids grow up. Life is full of change and opportunities.

Re: Elon Musk on whether this is a simulation

Asked whether he was saying that the answer to the question of whether we are in a simulated computer game was “yes”, he said the answer is “probably”.
Perhaps Elon Musk should convince Joshua Brown and family that this life is a simulation.

Re: Best minimalist way to iron clothing?

Buy the smallest iron you can find. Iron clothes while damp - no need for steam. No need for an ironing board - put a towel or two on your table.
Iron carefully and enjoy the moment.
