Re: Millennials allegedly hold 10 times less wealth than Boomer generation (not about generational blaming and fighting)

I'm glad that Buried Tartaria points out straight away he is not generation blaming. The younger generations also catch a lot of flak because of what they supposedly (don't) do. Generations are essentially a fallacy because many people of the same age group have very different interests. If anyone ...

Also, while I know it was not the intention of the OP (or believe so) this divide and conquer strategy of the old vs the young is just another flavor of cultural Marxism.

There are a variety of reasons for this: * The older folk got on the property ladder when it was cheaper. * Work and wealth headed overseas. * The arrival of the Gig Economy (or whatever you call it stateside) * Much of the property market is being snapped up by a handful of individuals (Air BnB) a...

Re: Millennials allegedly hold 10 times less wealth than Boomer generation (not about generational blaming and fighting)

Also not meant as a fight, but I think needs to be addressed: When I started my professional career around 1985, my salary was exactly $20,000. In 1995 I got a new job and got a big increase to $40K salary. I was 32. Paternity leave didn't exist and paid maternity leave was 6 weeks at best. I worked...

I don't think we should ever trust anyone to the point of "I'll fall over backwards and you will catch me" when the consequence of not getting caught is damnation. Only the Lord is worthy of that level of trust.

Re: Anyone ever fast for 33 or 38 hours?

48 hours no food or water + 24 hours water only. I was feeling pretty wobbly at the 48 hour mark water made things a lot better.

I thought that was pretty good, but some of the things you people have done are amazing. I'm blown away.
