    People have replaced God with consuming instead. Notice how very rabid some people become when you insult their favourite brand? No different than in the past when you insulted the God they would have worshiped instead.

      fpbp. There's more to it but this basically sums up the effects of advertising/propaganda on the population. Also parasocial relationships. Holy shit those are getting bad now. I mentioned I didn't like some youtuber's voice and opened an entire can of worms with that comment.

      I think the worst part is the distortion of the "price is right" effect the last few years we got from inflation. That is, while I still think $200, is a lot, it's frick all these days.

    I live in southern California and spend literally half of my post-tax income (low 6 figs) on housing+utilities costs so I don't have to live in one of the neighborhoods where your car gets broken into once per month. No car payments, no real debt to speak of, the only bad financial habit I have is gambling on crypto and eating out 1-2x a week.

        I'm aware. I live in a 1 BR/BA, I got an apartment with a built-in den so I could write it off on my taxes so it's a little more expensive than a normal 1 BR but not by much ($200 more/month). It's just insanely expensive to live here unless you're willing to deal with roommates (all of my friends have moved out of CA or to other cities so it would have to be a stranger) or are willing to live in the barrio with the nicaraguan illegals who listen to to banda at full volume until 3 am and constantly have domestic disputes. Also if you have anything better than a '99 civic they will break your windows to get into your car.

            It's very bad right now. I'm a lifelong socal resident and a 4th generation californian and it's looking like I'll need to accept my downscale status and move out of the state despite technically being in the top 10% of earners in the country. Rents and COL went completely out of control here starting around 2019 and a lot of people like me are being pushed out by wealthy foreigners working at the new tech startups in the nicer parts of LA metro.
            I'm also really tired of hearing disgustingly ugly people jabber in hindi/farsi/urdu/etc while walking around and at grocery stores if I'm being totally honest. Used to be only Koreans and other flavors of east asia who had annoying elderly but at least the girls were loose and great lays. New arrivals are all chubby and get really into woke politics bc they see it as a way to gain status.

            Yeah, I get it. I'm self-conscious about being an immigrant. Not that I would take any shit from a native about it, but I can't imagine you'd be very happy seeing so many foreigners coming in and for the best jobs there are. Unironically the places where I see native citizens the most are bus drivers, cafeteria workers, waiters. Like wtf? This makes no sense to me.

            I'm here on a great job and do feel like I deserve it, and that the company should be able to get a visa for me and hire me, don't get me wrong. But if you US citizens woke up tomorrow and decided to void all recent visas and greencards, I couldn't be mad about it. In fact I'd think it's a based move even if it inconveniences me.

            The government and subversive elements have spent a LOOOOONG time trying to destroy American nationalism. Replacement is one of the last steps in this process.

            Be careful. Keep in mind you only get one life, and security is invaluable. Make sure you have an escape route at all times in case something pops off (imagine being a resident of the CHAZ in Seattle when that popped off).

            As much as that's true, and it is true, everywhere else is worse. It's very depressing to think about.

            I live paycheck to paycheck because I dump 33% of what I earn into savings (crypto and stocks) and pretend it doesn't exist except to make more money for me to use someday...

            Keep it up man. That's what I did for about 5 years and got debt free and accumulated enough bitcoin to retire early. One time I wound up cash strapped so bad I was literally eating bread and peanut butter in a hotel room until I realized I could go get a personal loan from my bank and have the money in my account in 24 hours. Keep grinding king.

            This right here is why Americans are so bad with money
            >$10,000 would alter the course of my life
            It wouldn't. Its a lot of money but that simply isn't life changing money anymore.
            >allow me some time to work on my fulfilling hobbies instead of waging so much.
            You said the reality out loud and don't even realize it. If you had $10,000 land in your lap you'd work less and blow it on funcopops and bullshit. Within a year you'd be exactly where you are today complaining (with inflation) how you have to work so much and can't enjoy your hobbies that you dumped $10k into.

            I thought about commenting but there was no point. He's simply NGMI. 10k wouldn't change his life the same way 100k or 1M wouldn't. He'd still be the same person and he'd eventually be broke again.

            I use XMR.

            Based but also I'm sorry for your losses. XMR is the only crypto I'm in the red on (well that and PNK but I've written that off entirely as a loss for tax purposes).

            Doesn't actually bother me that much. I mostly use it to buy drugs. If I used it like a savings account it would've hurt, but I don't because I'm not super concerned about the price spiking. XMR is pretty clearly decoupled from BTC in my mind.

    They've never written it all down. They've never used a checkbook, a ledger, excel, whatever, to actually sit down and see the money in and money out. They're high time preference and are so absorbed in their jobs that any break or relief from it doesn't seem like real life, but a dream. The time spent not working is usually spent "watching shows." Going to Red Lobster or Olive Garden every week is pretty much a given. The car isn't the low end model or old - it's the newer high-end model in a 3-year revolving lease. The mortgage is likely +$500 more than it should be. They financed their sofa, their appliances, their 4k OLED TV, and their furnace.
