Don’t sell yourself short, Buddy. You just responded to a post on an Internet forum from 20 years ago where 99% of the members left and the other 1% just post links to music WITHOUT EVEN TALKING TO EACH OTHER.

UGT number one!! ;p

"This place is a fucken retirement home"

Always funny to see people negatively critique in a way that implicates themselves. With nhill dumping his vitriol here, he's indicating that he himself is in a "retirement home" and shitting his diaper. It's so easy to pretend that everyone else is the enemy.

I was most certainly implicating myself in the post, too, lol. Let’s face it we’re ancients in internet terms now ;)

"Let’s face it we’re ancients in internet terms now"

That's at least true. These people born after 2000 never had to have an honest argument with a 4chan autist in a censor-free discussion. Being able to block and dog-pile has made them mentally weak. Their bloodline is weak, and history will forget them >:p

"Hard times create strong men, strong men create good times, good times create weak men, and weak men create hard times."

I believe the internet is in the latter phase of this cycle. But... will it be able to make a reversal soon? I feel like the silly snowflake censoring has peak in the near future.

The Fourth Turning might be accelerated at least, since culture spreads and morphs so quickly now that people may lose a taste for war before the next one is even declared :)

That's the best song named "Crazy"! And coincidentally my wife's favorite song. :)

Got her a record player with the Patsy Cline record back when we were dating. Good times :D

Life is simultaneously awesome and challenging at the same time. My wife has mysterious health issues (nerve pain) and the USA healthcare system is a joke. We've been to 12 doctors so far and racked up over $30,000 in costs. Thankfully have okay insurance and only had to pay $3,000 out of pocket.

But it's been tough, man. We homeschool the kids, travel a lot, and have a small homestead to manage.

The awesome part is a managed to make enough money in my career to retire in my mid-30s, so we don't have financial stress (I live comfortably w/ 6 figures income off interest and dividends from investments). Every once and a while I'll take a contract or consultancy as a software engineer either out of boredom or to inject a bit more capital into our investments, but having freedom to do what I want, where I want (remote contracts), and enjoy life has been awesome. Up until we experienced the health issues that has grounded us and stretched me a bit thin managing the house.

Congrats on fixing the washing machine. Feels good man. Our sprinkler system and water softener is broke. I can fix the latter, most likely, but for now it's disconnected. *mental note to do that this week*

Glad you're doing fine. Time is the eternal struggle.

Nice to be able to retire in your mid-30s, I must be doing something wrong :P Should save you some time :) Sucks for the health issues though :( I assume still no solution, as they're mysterious?

Washing machine wasn't really broken, but clogged so I get to remove the top, front and display to remove some laundry we'd been missing for a few weeks already. I sent a picture to my gf of our dismantled washing machine, which freaked her out a bit :P Of course I only sent it after I put everything back together and had it running again :)

Why the travel? Out of choice or necessity? A colleague of mine is having a 6 month holiday and travelling around Europe with wife and 2 kids in a motorhome. Kind of makes me dream about a different life :P

Oh Osama yes, Agri, Agricola, and several other names. However, I didn't start posting until long after it was called UGT, so I've never really been a HOer. I started in UT actually.

I got lucky, is all. Some choice investments a few years back paid off more than expected! I've always been the type to save and invest, but it took a while for it to really take off.

As for travel, we love to travel in the RV around the USA. We do it with 4 kids in a motorhome. It can be cramped on rainy days, for sure. :O

But if you get the opportunity to try it, it's a fun lifestyle. The hardest thing for me is missing the reliability of things like hot water, electricity, laundry etc. Which of course we still get but it's not as simple as turning a faucet. :)

>Of course I only sent it after I put everything back together and had it running again :)

Lol! I know the feeling. And that manly feeling of "Yes, Honey, I Have Fixed All The Things" ;)

Happy to hear from ya

Oh, and yeah the health issues are still not solved. We just haven't found the root cause. She's limited to a wheelchair most of the time due to intense nerve pain, and she's always tired from painkillers. It's sad to see. The current working theory among the medical staff is that it may be a rare virus (kinda like Shingles), but nothing has showed up in the usual tests.

We are probably going to move temporarily to get her the best medical care in the USA at Mayo Clinic. They're setup much better where all the specialists know and work together on a day-to-day basis. Part of our problem getting answers is specialists are all located in different areas because the best ones have a 1 year waiting list.

Fingers crossed...
