    He's a multi millionaire, a pimp, hates Star Wars, and he's combat ready. A true manly man.


    Sounds like he was a big fan until he lost his wiener in a freak jar jar blow up doll incident.

     

    Getting to mulltimillionaire is easy PekingDuck. It’s about as common as college degrees 20 years ago. I’ve seen many people get there and lose it all in less than a decade. Staying a multimillionaire is where the skill is at.

    According to this list, you've never accomplished anything if you routinely eat breakfast (???), and you constantly have to find other people to have lunch with.


    Dude, you failed on #1. Why keep reading?

    1. Take long walks, no music, no podcasts. 
    2. Don't take advice. 
    3. Especially don't take advice from anyone older than you who has to work to get by.

    5. Avoid debt at all costs.
    6. It ain't over till the fat lady sings: unless you die happy, all your success and joy can be taken from you. This applies to the people you envy.
    7. Atheists and religious zealots make for crap lunch conversation. Stick to the agnostic and the ones who go to church for the theater, incense, and pretty music.
    8. A weird obsessive hobby (say collecting soundtracks) is interesting in a man and creepy in a woman. 
    9. If you haven't pissed anyone off, you haven't said or done anything worth a damn.
    10. You can only say what you really think if you have no employer AND one of the following A) Lots of Money with No Debt B) Lots of Debt with No Family C) No Money, No Family, and No Fucks to Give.
    11. Don't watch the news.
    12. Forums are fun for arguments while killing time, but should not be your sole social interaction. 
    13. Don't have lunches alone. 
    14. If you don't know how to survive without a job, you're a zombie.
    15. The only retirement plan you can somewhat control is your physical and mental fitness. Unless you get hit by a bus.
    16. Learn how to turn lemons in to lemonade. 
    17. Panic is useful early. Useless late. 
    18. Be kind and generous to the people others perceive to be "below" you. 
    19. Breakfast is for losers. 
    20. If you need coffee to make it through the day, you're already dead inside. 
    21. Don't be dead inside. 
    22. Don't fight your enemies, give them what they need to end themselves. 
    23. Porn in video form turns you into a sissy.
    24. Sex does not turn you into a sissy. 
    25. It's good for your brand to have a hapless idiot as your nemesis. 
    26. Less packaged food.
    27. College is a waste of time, especially now that everyone is going into debt to do it. Go make money instead.

    32. Is funny, someone who has careful divided all, their eggs into separate baskets on Titanic?
    33. Don't be one of those people who's angry all the time. But on the rare occasion you do get angry, make sure they never forget it. 
    34. Always leave your opponents a way out. 
    35. If you've never gone out at 1:00 AM in the morning and explored a city while it sleeps, you haven't lived. 
    36. Avoid people who can't keep contradictory ideas in their head. 
    37. Dress sharp, even if it's the end of the world. 
  4. Haven't watched the news in 5 years. Barely read it. Don't miss a damned thing.

    But as the the mists start to clear we can see now that Corona just isn't a big killer that warrants locking people in their houses for more than 8 weeks and risk economy meltdown. We have to live with it and will have to factor in a few statistically negligible additional deaths. If it hasn't some HIV-like surprise in its DNA, and even then, lockdown isn't gonna change that at all.

     

    Define live with it? Live with it with masks and continued social distancing, sure? Or live with it as if life is normal? It's too soon to just live with it. We don't have a good picture what the long term effects of being infected are. For all we know, all the asymptomatic sub-18 year olds drop dead in 10 months. 

     

    Open up, let people get back to it. Whatever. But enforce masks with continued social distancing to minimize spread. Until we know: this isn't worse than we think OR we figure out how to prevent it with vaccines (which seems unlikely at this point).

    That's a bullshit statement. A 50-70% increase seen in some countries from all-cause mortality compared to a 5 year average isn't statistically negligible. It's not even practically negligible. 

  5. Check out those excess all-cause mortality deaths this year due to Just The Flu.

    Waiting for one of the chumps here to say Ultra Powerful Governments™ are murdering their clone armies to make the all-cause mortality body count look bigger than it usually does.

    UK - 229,705 cases - 33,186 deaths

    Russia - 242,271 cases - 2212 deaths

     

    Same amount of cases but big difference in deaths. Them Russians sure are strong. 


    The night is still young Alex. Give it time. It’s like when everyone was amazed that Germany had sub-1% death rates.  Now they are in line with 4-5%

    I'm a biased vegan repulsed by the meat aisle at the grocery store but those wet markets are also disgusting and apparently the source of viruses for years now. It's entirely ludicrous.


    Bubonic plague also originated there. So did Spanish flu.

  8. Being compassion-free assholes has gotten Sweden (10 million pop) here:

    Compared to Norway (5 million pop):

    2 times the population of Norway, 50 times the daily deaths today. Brutal, murderous, cold people the Swedes! 

     

    Not sure I buy the optimistic forecast in the images either. I don't see any evidence it's going to let up for them.

    It is likely that legislators and law enforcement authorities will aggressively push to define failure or refusal to obtain a smartphone as an act of unlawful disobedience, and will demand for greater powers to detain and/or prosecute those unwilling to comply. This will of course lead to financially disadvantaged classes falling into an increasingly undesirable position due to the fact that they might not be able to afford a smartphone, therefore their movements may become extremely limited by force.


    In countries without sheeple there would be a second civil war if that happened.

    I like and respect Ron 75% of the time, but he's fucking clueless here. Doctors in general have been fucking clueless. They only get one-on-one patient care, not global pandemics.

    The country was closed to prevent the hospitals from being overrun. Not with the idea that the lockdown would remain until we have a cure or vaccine. It's time to reopen and let things play out as they will. It's time to live and let die. 

     

    Si. Though I have no horse in this re-opening race, as I'm sitting cushy and safe on my farm, regardless of what you all decide to do.

    I sit at the computer and read JWFan all day, any specific comfy chair recommendations?

     

    Best to invest in a plot of land and a headstone. 

  12. I don’t miss ergonomic chairs. I did standing desk for years, and that gradually fucks up your knees. Office work is slow degenerative death if you’re not careful. 
     

    That said, most back pain, unless there is serious underlying pathology is just because your back is too weak. Quit sitting on the dole and grab a barbell Drax!

    When will unemployment offices start hounding people to look for a job again?

     

    I always assumed you were on the dole, what with your back and all.
