My curriculum builds on learning many languages, which is why I live in different countries every year.



    I am not wealthy, the trustees control all my accounts till I get 18. They check the receipts of everything I buy, they control my cash limits, they review my schedules, ... . But I can't complain, they have been reasonable with me. They provide me VPN for work/games, approve me to go for invitations, they even overlooked a few of my fibs too when I really wanted to go out with a girl. As long as I get grades that they approve of and I keep my lunch appointments at church when requested.



    No I am not deluded (I hope), only I am afraid of people's inflated attitudes about work. Luckily nobody at this forum has that attitude. I kinda agree with the rest of your post, but that is all their fault, they forget what they are, that in essence it is out of the grace of the Lord that they are what they are, and not because of whatever they think. I usually remind them when they bitch (showing my absolute arrogance) to re-read Ephesians 2:10 which goes like we all do what (the Lord has) prepared for us IN ADVANCE to work at. They deserve their decline, they forgot that the Lord put them in charge of the land for the purpose of being a good host for the prosperity of that land (not themselves).



    What do you mean working for someone else as "work" as opposed to not working for someone else as "work"?
    Trustees giving you an allowance until you are 18?

    lol never mind dude you live in a fantasy world that is not relevant at to our reality.

    Do you know why?

    The cheapest foods tend to be high-carb and fattening if you eat a lot of it.

    Beans, rice, gravy, cheap fatty meats, cheap microwave dinners... the fresh foods and lean meats cost more, and a lot of poor people can't AFFORD a healthy diet.

    Trustees and 18 aside, it certainly sounds like you are what most people would call "wealthy"... or at least, "financially indepedent".

    Most people don't get trust funds.

    Most people have no choice about getting a job, it is "root, hog, or die!"

    I prefer a mixture of the two, myself.


    Actually I prefer to deal with deadly dangerous **** nobody else wants to fool with, most of all.

    My statement was statistical but in this case it is indeed obvious that this specimen is a perfect bio experiment with the cross-breeding of people and pigs. Sorry, I have to apologize to the pigs. (I dare not even re-quote her picture.)

    And I thought that I was the one with the attitude problem. HAHAHAHAHA

    There was a program sometime that featured lottery winners many years after the fact. Almost all of them wished that they had never had won. I think you would be one of them. There is no point for you to have money if you don't understand money.

    Re: How do you like physical labor for a living?

    I don't like physical labor at all. The most physical labor I do at my current job is giving shots (unless you count standing for hours physical labor). I much prefer mental labor.

    Looks like the globalization of food markets is the same trend as any other market from the consumers' point of view. I must speculate then, that maybe this is the way that the human race is bringing itself to extinction. (Faster than any war HAHAHA.)

    It is so horrible that this way is so disgusting. At least animals go extinct by starving over their disappearing living environment. That is easier to manage.

    Beans and potatoes, greens and bread, nuts and olives; good food doesn't cost. Eat a balanced meal (protein/carbs/fat) every 3-4 hours, exercise a little every day, try to take a vitamin once or twice a week, get some raw food and don't forget fruits.

    I was thinking about this A LOT.

    I guess the best I can come up with so far is that we need to realize that before we consider money, we must consider how to reduce the pain of decay for everything, this idea stolen from Romans 8:20-21 "For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope, that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God.".
