On Billfold Housing Survey Results: Are You a Millennial?

@@fo But they start in 1945, right? 19 years is pretty close to 20.... So then Gen X is born 65-85? That doesn't quite feel right to me -- see ATF not feeling like an Xer, culturally.

On Billfold Housing Survey Results: Are You a Millennial?

@Katni Meanwhile, I always thought I was on the young end of Gen X, I was born in 73! I guess the question is if we're counting "generations" as covering 20 years, or just using the term to describe cultural cohorts.

On How Much Allowance Money Should You Give Your Children?

When I was in high school, I got $20/week: $1/day for the bus, $2/day for lunch, $5 extra for the week. I started bringing my lunch so I would have money to do stuff with friends.

On What Is It Like To Go Luxury Shopping In Sweats

@ronswansonluva I have to say, I don't think even my decent clothes rise to the level of fancy stores, so I am always that person in that kind of store, even if I think I look fine.

On Take The Billfold 10-Question Housing Survey

I should have picked "other" on the when you want to own a home question -- I have known for years that I wouldn't own a home until my parents both die, and it just gets more and more true as the years go on...

On On the Daily Show's Jessica Williams, the Latest High-Profile Victim of Impostor Syndrome

@radicaledward I'm not making the argument that Jessica Williams *should* get the job. I'm just saying she won't because she's a young black woman.

@TheDilettantista And I doubt either one of them is looking for a full-time job like that.

@radicaledward And Conan wasn't ready either! He was a mess. But "looking the part" can get you pretty far.
