Re: A Jacob Mention

I shouldn't have to read Kegan to understand simple concepts. I seriously mean that, and the notion I keep hearing that one has to do their homework before they engage in a conversation here is ridiculous. The end result is that you are self-selecting for a bunch of academics that jerk each other o...

Re: 7Wannabe5- Take 7- The Money Dimple

In Which 7Wannabe5 Cuts Herself Some Slack and Heads Back to the Drawing Board/Spreadsheets: Well, the big news is that I rented myself a tiny apartment that is located very near to the Money Dimple, but in an objectively safer area. I am 56 years old, and although I have often been financially inde...

Re: A Jacob Mention

Endless abstraction without action may be regarded as useless mental masturbation, but for those of us who err on the side of exploration/abstraction, those who are primarily doers can come off as a rough mix of dangerous or dull. Daylen reminds me of my own INTP son, and I can always see clear to w...

Re: Polyamory Support Group

@RoamingFrancis: Twins separated at birth are far more likely to choose similar careers and brands of beer than similar spouses. The same rule of thumb holds true for individuals choosing first and second spouse. However, it is likely to choose within your own social circle or peer group or simply t...

Re: Polyamory Support Group

At your age any situation that resembles a college town environment would be your best bet. For better or worse, dating apps are prevalent these days, but they work much better for even old women than young men. Identical twins separated at birth studies indicate that who we end up with as partners ...

Re: 1 Jacob Adjusted For Inflation (JAFI)

@ducknald_don: Right, but the purchasing power parity in the U.S. does not directly correlate with total global GDP expressed in $U.S. It is hard to wrap head around, but basically it is the difference between recognizing that the lifestyle which costs approximately $11,000 year in the U.S. would be...

Re: 1 Jacob Adjusted For Inflation (JAFI)

@oldbeyond: I generally agree, but there can also be a sort of ratcheting decision matrix on buying green as efficiency improves. For instance, it might cost me more to repair the grid electrical service to my tiny house than to construct a solar system adequate to my level of usage given alternativ...

Re: 1 Jacob Adjusted For Inflation (JAFI)

I was researching the numbers myself, and I am wondering whether the Eco-Jacob (as opposed to the Frugal Jacob) should be calculated in International (PPP) $$ rather than U.S. $ given that the other factors are global? This makes a fairly significant difference since International Eco-Jacob would be...

Re: M2aS’ Journal

I think maybe you live in the same neck of the woods as my adult children and one of them is in the local LGBQT support choir and otherwise involved in the community if your daughter would like some contacts. I was over there last night watching their performance for Pride Week.

Re: AE's Journal Round 5 - Finding Freedom To

Maybe try to come up with some more adjectives that best describe your preferred aesthetic? For instance, I think of my masculine energy as being more juvenile, like a 12 year old Tom Sawyer looking for fun or freedom from dull convention, so even though I am a 56 years old, I frequently wear overal...

Re: A Jacob Mention

Being an 85 and thinking you’re an 80 has more chance of success in anything in life (including understanding ere) than being a 150 and thinking you’re a 180. The latter are the ones that always end up self destructing/shooting themselves in the foot I think that there is some truth to this observa...

Re: A Jacob Mention

@white belt: True, but in other lower energy/relatively higher population situations, a lot of humans were the serfs and a few humans were the lords. The word “husband” is derived from the concept of having enough independence/assets to be bound only to your own house. The word “family” originally r...

Re: A Jacob Mention

In the real world, at the most micro size of business, “capitalist” micro-business owners do not plan that way. Labor is an input they purchase on the open market in competition with other employers and opportunities for potential employees just like other inputs. When you are an owner/operator or g...

One in the city with other humans interested in permaculture and one in more rural/recreational area with my sisters. There are only 5 members of next generation and they are all adults who h...
