• How many |free| hours do you have on a work day?
      Depends on my shift. My "commute" is 15 minutes at most. It's actually like 7 minutes but I try to give myself 15 as it only takes one idiot driver to make it longer, like someone that tries to turn left in a stupid place.

      I won't count morning as that is just getting up ready for work, so if I get off at 5, get home by 5:15, normally go to bed at like 11-12 if I work the next day so that gives me a bit over 6 hours. Whatever time it takes to make supper will cut into that of course. I don't really count the hours after 11 though as that is really when I try to go to bed, I just happen to procrastinate and go to bed later most of the time.

      On a 12 hour shift I get home at around 7:15 and really try my best to be in bed by 10 because I also have to get up an hour earlier the next morning, so that gives me only a few hours. I normally don't eat supper when I'm on 12h shifts, I try to take my lunch later instead.

      I prefer working 12 hour shifts though, as the more 12s I work the more full days off I have. I rather have nice long stretches of hours to do stuff than to try to cram it in a few hours after work. That and after a full day of work I don't really feel like doing anything, whether it's 8h or 12h, it's still a full day of work and comes up to the same imo. The act of having to get up early makes me tired for the rest of the day, too.

    • Why do poors eat poorly, fail to budget properly and have no ambition?
      So let's break this down: you're poor, so you desperately need whatever crappy job you can find, and the nature of that crappy job is that you can be fired at any time. Meanwhile, your hours can be cut with no notice, and there's no obligation on the part of your employer to provide severance regardless of why, how or when they let you go. And we wonder why the poor get poorer?

      Your "payphone" is in your pocket. You're paying $150/month to use a $600 device. Instead of dropping 10¢ into a pay phone when you needed to, and paying $30/month for a landline, and letting the phone company own and maintain the phone equipment.

      (((How))) did that happen?

      We Boomers weren't just boomers in population but we were booming in economic growth as well.

    • How the American upper middle class keeps everyone else out
      WWII jump-started our prosperity, but the resultant middle class sustained it, so long as the rich contributed their fair share in taxes and embraced defensible business ethics. But the Age of Greed, which began in the late 80s, started eroding the middle class.
