Plastic Trash Vortex: machoprogrammer: Old people shouldn't retire, they should be researched so we can figure out what resources we can extract from them.Stop reading that Ross Perot pamphlet./is just assuming this was a Simpsons reference
KrispyKritter: it's nice to ride bicycles with the wife down the street without a neighbor's 20 yr old running you over with a mega-loud muffler low suspension VW.
BigBooper: I don't understand condos. Aren't you basically paying tens of thousand, if not hundreds of thousands, to live in an apartment? Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't most condo association fees as much as rent?
t3knomanser: hurdboy: Getting rid of the mortgage interest deduction is long overdue.I'll never understand why some people insist that you need to buy a house so that you can save money on taxes. I know that many people find math difficult, but it should be pretty easy to understand that while you don't pay taxes on the money used to cover the mortgage interest, you're still paying interest on the mortgage.
Hagbardr: ghare: Just a "maybe". I think I'd rather live die in a trailer park.I lived in a trailer park just outside of Halifax for a couple years. It was a nightmare. The park supervisor was constantly drunk off his ass and liked to drive around with his shirtless idiot assistant. They were constantly getting into confrontations with a bunch of career criminals who lived in the park. These guys were constantly growing dope, firing off guns, and stealing barbeques, among other offences. One of the guys lived in a farking shed and made a living selling stolen shopping carts. Another lived in a car (missing a door) and grew dope. These guys went to jail about once a year but never got evicted from the park.
shortymac: It's one of the cultural "you have tos". It like you "have to" have a wedding, you "have to" have kids, etc.It's so deeply ingrained in our psyche it's hard for people to de-program themselves.

My mother will never understand why my wife and I don't want a house in the 'burbs, kids, regular office job, etc.."You're okay that you don't drive anymore?""Uh, yeah, Mom.""When are you gonna have kids?""Mom, I'm half-blind, and my body basically don't work from the chest down.""... You know I'd be there to help y'all out."(The unsaid part of that is, "you two can come live with me!")//Mid-30s, wife is mid-20s.
