If you’re new here, this blog will give you the tools to become financially independent in 5 years. The wiki page gives a good summary of the principles of the strategy. The key to success is to run your personal finances much like a business, thinking about assets and inventory and focusing on efficiency and value for money.

Not just any business but a business that’s flexible, agile, and adaptable. Conversely most consumers run their personal finances like an inflexible money-losing anti-business always in danger on losing their jobs to the next wave of downsizing. Here’s more than a hundred online journals from people, who are following the ERE strategy tailored to their particular situation age, children, location, education, goals, Since everybody’s situation is different age, education, location, children, goals, I suggest only spending a brief moment on this blog, which can be thought of as my personal journal, before delving into the forum journals and looking for the crowd’s wisdom for your particular situation.

If humans use increasing sanitation, the virus could either respond by becoming more resistant to sanitizing procedures through evolutionary means. Another response would be ease of transmission through other vectors.

If transmission becomes more aggressive, the virus has no interest in keeping the host comfortable enough to walk around and spread the virus further. It may just turn more deadly. From a human perspective, it would be in the best interest to support the weaker and more benign virus strains so that they may compete with the strong and be competitive due to sheer numbers.

If the weak are wiped out or if it made less feasible for them to dominate, the strong will overwhelm the system of vira and humans and completely change it. See this link for a f un example of one of the side effects of frivolous antibiotics usage. For each attack, there is and will be an appropriate counter-attack. Also, systemic change is highly unpredictable. Not according jacbo this graphwhich shows an almost inverse correlation between retirement age and lifespan, that is, the sooner you retire, the longer you will lune.

The graph shows linearity going into earlier years. It is interesting how long that relation holds. This somehow contrasts with this study which comes to the opposite conclusion. However, if, as stated in the comments, the study was not corrected for the poorer health of some early retires, e. A priori reasoning would suggest that not having any job related stress at the chronic low level that leads to increased blood pressure and bad habits like sugary drinks insulin havocwhich comes with many jobs, perhaps especially careers, would increase life span.


Of course, the lack of a job could also lead to a lack of meaning which would lead to stress. Pointless activities including jobs do seem to be somewhat disagreeable. Hence, I suspect one should simply take it for what it is worth, that is, lifespan is a very individual matter and that it correlates weakly with group behavior. In my case I am certainly more relaxed and content than I was in my career. Thus I would expect to live longer being jqcob. Conversely, if I had continued complaining about my career many of my complaints agree with this paperspecifically balancing the fascinating parts, like research and model getirement, with the inane parts like proposal writing, doing the same presentation over and over, and building my resume, it just might have cost me a decade of life, not to mention perhaps several decades of living.

When DW and I merged our households, DW contributed three coffee machines, two waffle makers, one food processor, one blender, one bread maker, a toaster owen, a microwave oven, a multitude of pots and pans, two strainers, many many spoons of various shapes, a block with a complete set of knives, and enough dinnerware for a small army.

I suspect this collection is fairly representative for a typical kitchen.

However, such a collection requires a fairly large amount of cupboard space which in turn requires a large kitchen which in turn requires a larger housing unit which in turn requires a higher income. Therefore this collection also comes with higher depreciation costs.

My goal is to downsize our kitchen to reduce our expenses and money requirements. I had used these for all my cooking needs for 6 years before I met DW. Using this I could and can cook almost anything except specialized dishes like creme bruulee even though I suspect I just might be able to use my windmill butane lighter?

Fancy mustard come in whisky glasses. Any glass will do though. In principle this cup negates the need for the glass above, but I like to drink water out of a glass rather than a cup. This can be put directly on a gas burner for reheating. If I had a microwave I would probably go for Corelle ware instead as it is lighter and metal does not work in microwaves. I forget what I paid for mine but a reasonable guess is: This also goes directly on a gas burner for reheating.

I got a serrated model because I lunr usually use the metal plates as a cutting board. By drawing the point of the knife across the plate I would only destroy the point. Simply stuff the unused end into the handle. With a pressure cooker, it is possible to cook rice in ten minutes using about five minutes of gas.

Beans can be cooked in 20 minutes with about 10 minutes of gas. Potatoes can be cooked in 2 minutes. Get one, learn how to use it and take good care of it.

It has a thick bottom no hot exteemeso exttreme is also good for frying. I have a set of camping utensils: I always used the utility knife instead though so if I had to pick again, I would get a spork. Now admittedly, this earlyy works for one person only. However, I would not suggest one gets more plates than however many people regularly use them.


If guests only appear once or twice a year, maybe use paper plates or have them bring their own. Regardless, all this fits inside the pressure cooker for easy transport in a suitcase or a backpack. It also fits on a single shelf in a cupboard. When cooking I would transfer food between the plate and the pressure cooker. As I mentioned before, the serrated knife allows the use of the plate as a cutting board. Retirwment raw meat is cut on the plate and transferred to the cooker, it is of course necessary to wash the plate and the knife before eating from it again.

If I cook a meal that involves using the pressure cooker twice e. Why so few succeed My list of financial freedom books A startup curriculum for finance, economics, and investing My 4 hour work week How little do you need to retire?
