    They are using chicory very broadly. I think most "dandelion" sold at supermarkets actually is chicory (no wonder it doesn't look that much like the dandelions growing on lawns - although they are...

    That isn't an expensive location though.

    If the book sells at all, I think it's not because it's what people think: how to plan a comfortable retirement, but rather a book on how to be poor in...

    This is nonsense. The Build Back Better bill (the reconciliation bill) EXPANDS MEDICARE to age 60 and expands Medicare coverage of hearing, optometry, dental etc.

    Well one of the problems besides housing being very expensive, is jobs are very impermanent. So renting gives one the flexibility to move for work, and I don't necessarily mean move across the...

    Wow, would be better to just buy lottery tickets it seems. You are not going to win much, but sometimes someone actually does.

    They live in a beach town, basically right on the beach, that's plenty pleasant scenery and better weather than inland (less humid). With all the downsides of Florida including hurricanes and...

    I don't like that my mom is on an Advantage plan, but I have to say it's been working great so far (lots and lots of follow up from surgery etc.). I don't know if there will be surprise billing. ...

    I've mostly ignored the issue as it doesn't directly affect me (nothing I've wanted I couldn't buy - well there is the annoying quarter shortage I guess) and I suspect will resolve itself in due...

    I have neither but I fantasize about a dish washer. Oh well that needs a whole plumbing setup right, ok I don't have that, I've always figured it probably isn't possible as it didn't come with the...

    I'm not sure the making from of one's personal group would be accepted. Suppose Dave Chappelle made fun of black guys (maybe he does, I don't claim to know). Would it really be considered okay if...

    that would depend entirely on my situation. Being that I'm usually able to get much better jobs, probably not very readily at all. If I was my sibling who has never worked in 40 years and I suppose...

    Well another thing is a lot of them are grifters, grifting on anti-woke as a way to make money so to speak. But everyone anti-woke is a grifter? Well no some people would draw interest to begin...

    I take it as a given I suppose that much comedy is based on some cruelty. Maybe this is cruelty to whoever the accepted target de jour is (Karen's?). Then again I don't watch much comedy either. ...

    I find offices to have distractions, my own apartment, nope not really, the leaf blowers that come around once a week maybe? I brought my own lunch most days, so no I didn't waste money or calories...

    The seat belt analogy is a pretty bad one, the risks there are pretty much born by the person not wearing a seatbelt. There may be societal costs but they are pretty diffuse, they aren't much like a...

    I would say neither because I don't have a psychological hang up about it.

    But realistically probably more likely to do something, as most things are not hills to die on so to speak, and I don't...

    Well if one doesn't even know any office workers, it's office work that lends itself to working at home.

    And offices are stultifying, it's visceral for me. People used to mock cubicals. Then...
