    Best Marriage Advice

    If it needs to be done, do it. If you see it, take care of it. Be the person that fixes the problem, not the person who orders someone else to fix the problem.

    For example, don’t look in the fridge at something spoiled and passively aggressively say, ‘Are you trying to grow a fungus farm? I’m just asking!’

    That’s a good way to piss off your spouse and get a divorce. If you see a problem, fix the problem. Watch your marriage thrive.

    The only thing Covid has taught me

    Is that the older generations (50-75) are not, on average, willing to sacrifice for babies or the young. Babies and the young are supposed to sacrifice…for them.

    Not surprising, since it is this age group who invented the motto ‘Two is Enough!’ (in regards to having children.)

    If I was a Bitcoin Billionaire…

    I would use the money to buy land and build my perfect community i.e. character houses, large lots, winding tree-lined streets, no freeways, no busy roads, plenty of park space, the perfect downtown shopping area.

    There’s nothing better then a well-designed city.

    Being fat is not a moral failure, but it’s still not healthy

    Every single person can relate to over-eating. I can’t write or study without a bowl of something nearby. I need food to calm myself. Am I a bad person? Of course not! Am I a bit undisciplined? Maybe. Am I using food as emotional support? Pretty sure that’s a yes. But I’m still not a bad person.

    However, once you start saying that being overweight is healthy…then you start to be a bad person. A doctor’s appointment can establish the state of your health, and your ideal weight. Food can be used to heal or to harm. You want to make sure your using food to heal.

    Gluttony is a sin. Gluttony is associated with overeating, but it also refers to Habitual Greed. I do not believe the obesity crisis in America is caused by gluttony. Americans work really hard and then turn to food for comfort, and oftentimes you think you are making a healthy decision when you are not because the ingredients are not forthcoming.

    Cancel Culture means there are not enough white collar jobs

    The point of Cancel Culture is to get people fired from positions you want. But why would you want to do such a terrible thing to someone? Because there aren’t enough white collar Liberal Arts based jobs to go around.

    I have watched fashion bloggers go ‘Full Woke’ and full ‘Cancel.’ It was all just a dog-eat-dog way of saying ‘The money is drying up, the likes are harder to get, the followers are nonexistent.’

    Instead of trying to get one another fired and competing for a slice of a shrinking pie, let’s work together to fix the problem.
