"Save as much as you can" seems like the most useless advice to me. I'm in a position where I can afford to save a lot, but I also kind of assume that I'll my IRA will have been melted by global warming or eaten by nanobots by the time I'm 65.
The saddest thing about this gif is that the new cabinet is clearly exactly the same as the old cabinet.
I guess this is basically the multibillionaire equivalent of buying lottery tickets.
So that's what Elisabeth Moss was ordering in Top of the Lake.
I wonder if lab-grown cheese would be any easier to make? Dairy isn't much better for the environment than beef, and being a vegetarian is A LOT easier than being a vegan. Anyway, I think it's great that someone is actually financing this. Also: if you look into the details of how normal meat is produced, you'll probably start finding that pretty unappetizing too.
@stuffisthings It still makes this chart pretty much useless though. What good is this as a visual illustration of data when you need the rollover notes just to know what each bar is measuring?
@cmcm I think it's debatable that working for a hedge fund really makes him more implicated in that system than academics or the rest of us are. Academics' salaries have to come from somewhere, everyone who has a 401k owns stock in oil companies and defense contractors, etc. tbh you're probably more anti-capitalist than I am though.
If you're going to use this reasoning to play the lottery (I do) you should probably try to find a game with a lower payout but better odds. Like Pennsylvania has a game called Millionaire's Raffle which has a $1 million payout and 1 in 125,000 odds, I assume other states have their own equivalents. You could easily stop working forever on "just" $1 million.
@Reginal T. Squirge Could you do this guy's job? Not having health insurance is a bad decision and I guess pouring boiling water into a toilet is too, but I think it's really shitty to just point-blank call someone stupid on the basis of a short interview.
