That’s why I became a failed musician and writer addicted to drugs, bummed around a while, got clean and now I just work for myself doing something I can stand, while being absolutely mesmerized by how awful people are. 😢

I’ve been working at a rich ladies house the last few weeks.

If you used her money to feed an entire town for a month, she wouldn’t even know.

Generally speaking, from a layman’s pov(which I am), the theory kinda holds water IMHO.

Both right and left have a common thread. Humans.

I feel like I definitely read that in middle/high school

I’d just be glad to finally return to monke

More than one-third of millennials believe they won’t get a dime of Social Security when they retire, so they’re taking matters into their own hands (creditnews.com)

Of all generational cohorts, older millennials are most likely to generate enough income to retire comfortably, according to the latest Vanguard Retirement Readiness report....

Not having children is my retirement. I will probably work till I’m old and gray so I just tuck what I can away, buy things that hold value, and live my life.

I’m not the most politically savvy but after having spun thru a few leftist thought circles, this has been my experience as well.

Scrip is kinda low key a thing again. My SO works for wawa and there is definitely some scrip vibe. They have a company store, a points reward system, they will put you through school if you take classes that benefit the Corp, and the only way to move up is to basically bootlick management at weird company festivals.

It all has this very dystopian vibe of “everything within the corporation eco system” and my SO is a very principled women who is shy and kind and she refuses to take a step to elevate herself within the Corp, but getting a union going is pretty hard where we’re at, everyone is very much of the boot tasting, welfare queen bad variety.

8000 a year? That would be a huge help. Like it would alleviate almost all of my burdens.

Tbh…just lie. Base it firmly in reality though and get your story straight. Astroturf the entire reference with people you know, who may or may not have been involved with the reality. Make it believable to the rest of the application. Chances are your references will be passed over entirely anyway while whoever is doing the bare minimum to get through their work day checks over your application.

This may or may not be good advice. 🤷

Did humans, at some point, believe that the universe is 18 billion years old, prior to the 13.8 billion estimate?

When I was a kid (or perhaps a teenager), I distinctly remember at one point believing the universe was around 18 billion years old, but I can’t remember where my memory would’ve gotten that estimate prior to more modern estimates.

My geology teacher told me is was 6000 years old though! Dragons = dinosaurs!

I agree. Most of those computers are buggy af, and I tend to opt for live person when possible. But scanning grapes as bananas is worth it sometimes. 💁

They even give you the nice handheld scanner.

Just come to terms, probobly through traumatic events, that all life is is rejection. Then there is no rejection. There all done!

Did the "American dream" change over time, or was it just my interpretation of it?

So growing up, I had this idea that the American dream was about that if you put in an honest amount of work, you would be rewarded with a good life. This would mean you would be able to take care of yourself and your family, afford a car and a house. In my view, working one job would probably be enough....

Well said.

Took me a while to recognize the instilled behavior, and even longer to unwind the tendrils and it’s effects on my life in general. Capitalism has instilled a martyr complex into us.

I am a go where the wind blows kind of person and settled on working for myself. Much out of necessity as well, cause a company would absolutely not hire me anymore. I am still “poor”, but I make my own schedule at least. If I’m gonna get fucked, I’d like to choose how.

One piece gang! Sucks the anime gets butchered with filler. Still good imo. Manga is better ofc.
