I realized something crazy today. In some regards I based my whole life on a documentary I saw 5+ years ago. The documentary was called Minimalism. There was one guy who was stressed out as a software engineer or whatever it was and he quit his job and worked part-time in a grocery store stocking produce or whatever it was. I thought that was brilliant. For some reason, I just disregarded the fact that this guy had $200,000 in a 401k and a down payment and small mortgage on a condo. I don't want to go through the journey. The Buddhism. The monk or the guy like me who could maybe go down to the river and make pottery so my mom and I don't starve. That minimalism never talks about the small hippie grocery getting bought out by Amazon and offering a small raise in return for twice the amount of work. No excuses. Keep up or hit the streets Jack!

Now, it seems like I am chasing after that software engineer job. Chasing after it only to acquire x (what is x?) – Will I get the $200,000 in my 401k and a down payment and small mortgage on a condo and go back to a hippie grocery part-time?

I don't know.

I like python. I am acclimating to python but what will I do with it?

It is easy to copy code. It is another thing to understand what is going on and then to write my own code.

My sister-in-law's mother is dying an excruciating death due to ALS. My brother will be staying with us starting Sunday. Hopefully, there will be some time to nerd out on some stuff maybe even get some gaming in. Hopefully, there will be some time for him to look at some of the projects I'm working on and help me a bit.

One of my best buddies is out in San Fran crushing it right now and the last thing he said to me was "Rich, get rich, get healthy. That is your mantra right now." Sometimes I feel like it's possible. Sometimes I feel like I am down and out. There are enough series of greatness in my life that have to amount for something right?

I think I first have to pick a good spot to get rich at. It's certainly not going to be grocery stores or restaurants unless they will give me equity for free. So, then, I think I am boned unless I learn how to code. I have no other ideas. I don't know how to optimize my "Skill Stack" or "Network." I am more or less a pretty grungy dude. I like good food and getting a nut every now and again. I don't want to sleep on concrete or shit on concrete as part of my day. Hmmmm, that's about it.

Learn Solidity, write code for crypto, perhaps start your own project, thats a pretty good plan to make money.

I haven't seen the documentary but there is nothing wrong with choosing a simple life, Nassim Taleb's protege's, Joe Norman is a complex-system scientist and I believed he quit his job and built a homestead in a small community in the woods... return to monke lol.


The reason I'm focusing on making money is becaue I want to retire as soon as possible and not have to think about money ever again, I live a relatively spartan life, I own a 2013 focus st, a 2014 pickup for a business I started, a $300 xiaomi phone and bough a house, I could live way more extravagantly but then it would be a never ending game of making and spending money, that mindless thing Loco thinks capitalism creates but that obv is not my goal, I want to make money to be free.

I'm genuinely interested in your mindset behind that. Majority of Germans used to do the same thing and you could always see grandmas driving the newest Porsche. But what's the point of having money when you're old and don't have as much energy to do everything you wanted to do? Or do you only limit yourself in terms of material possessions but go all out on experiences?

I think that is the video rikd is talking about.

Idk I thought his decision was a mistake.

That being said I am getting more and more materialistic and I find myself lusting after random shit like watches, suits, cars, houses, etc. I feel like having more money isn't really just about living lavishly though you can not show off your money that much but women will respond better to you just because you have a bunch of money. Sex probably way better too.

Agree that it never ends. I'd love to have one of those huge yachts but basically impossible for everyone.

I don't think I would ever frame it go all out on experiences. I think the only touristy shit I ever enjoyed was The Louvre in Paris. Those flights and trains and hotel rooms and meals were pretty fucking expensive though. Most of my travels were fun because of the people but guess what there are people local to me as well. I am not a fan of asceticism unless it is veganism but anyone can go down to the local family owned taco joint and get a black bean burrito with avocado and pico de gallo and hot sauce or whatever amongst friends and have a good time. I don't have to be at Les Deux Magots or Café Flore to have an experience. The fucking Waffle House on the highway works for me.

Baal,

How is the xiaomi phone?

My iphone 6 is on its last legs. I was considering going back to a flip phone but I think cheap Shanzhai Chinese phone is the way to go.

my 2c

If you get into good shape start sniping fashion that is timeless. I always go back to the lacked here in that Prada outfit my friend wore and probably could have gotten laid by 5 women or more or really the whole club men and women included but he chose the smoking hot corporate lawyer in town for a good time. That's the killer outfit. All black prada everything. Still is to this day. You could go YSL, Tom Ford, Issey Miyake, etc.

I've known quite a few poker players that go for that I make money watch and end up never wearing it. I think it is best to pick a watch that you like and not care too much. Or, you can save up for 8 patek phillipe watches and wear all of them at once like a friend of some guy I knew did. As gaudy and ridiculous as that is it still worked.

The key is to keep all of your material'ness around the same level so you don't look like a fraud which is the hard part....

oh well, i gotta go

i would be interested in hearing what other people think b/c matieral'ness does work it just has to be done correctly

hiems, you could show up to a date in a new Porsche 911 (still too common but still a hot car), you are blacked out in fitted Prada, you are looking good and powerful. The point I was making earlier is that you can't take her to 5 Guys and you can't take her back to a closet studio in New Jersey and you can't take her back to your parents' house.

I'm trying to set up a system in which I show up in a 10 year old Japanese SUV, wearing slides, sweatpants and a hoodie, take her to the local Thai place where I know everyone, and I let her know that we will be playing Mario Kart Deluxe 8, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, or Donkey Kong Country before we move onto more adult, XXX fun. This is impossible in the current setup but at the new house I might be able to pick a room far enough from the downstairs and my parents' room that maybe there is a little bit of a chance it works. Of course, my finances are still in shambles. My plans have worked out terribly.

The Porsche 911 way is more tried and true. Probably, more efficient and certainly you will get laid more.

My plans will never work if I can't even pay for a Thai meal for 2. I also think I have to get out of my parents' home. Another option is take advantageous of a willing cougar who will support me but that seems like kind of a bonkers path to try to trodden.

Oh, also,

Re: experiences

There is a lot of value in novelty but I think in a lot of situations there are fine lines here. If I could spend a month in Japan or Italy or India with locals I assume I would be in heaven but I really don't know and those trips would still be expensive even if I lived cheaply.

I'm lusting after Grand Seiko SBGN003 and SBGA285 as my starter Sport / Dress watch.

edit : watches are indeed kind of stupid though. I have no idea when I became interested in maybe getting a watch

I recently found out about this site "TagTheSponsor.com" where it exposes convos/pics between these Sheikhs convincing these instagram girls to fly out to Dubai to give them rim jobs and let them piss on them on a yacht.

I've always wanted a boat after I saw this Croatian sex tape "Severina Vuckovic gets fucked on a boat" where some rich dude bangs her whilst pouring champagne on her tits like a boss and cumming on her face.

Thats why to me a boat is the pinnacle. After that everything sort of tapers off in terms of experience imo. I am sort of a sex addict lol.

I can't afford a Porsche 911 lol. I wish.

I have a 5% rule when it comes to cars and try to keep vehicles to roughly 5% of net worth.

Currently my aspirational cars are GTR, BMW M2 Competition or M3. Lexus RCF.

It's no yacht but you can probably find an abandoned fiberglass boat and clean it up, find a used aluminum mast, and then I wouldn't go cheap on the sail but it's doable. Sailing is much more difficult then just blasting through with large engines though. Get some prosecco to pour on the tits and Vueve Clicquot on sale at CostCo to drink before and after you cum on her face. Why not cum in her mouth and keep it in there for a little while in the wetness and warmth while it's still hyper-sensitive?

You could get a used sailboat for less than $5,000 (including mast and sail and other) but it would take a lot of work to not only clean it up and get it going but also to know how to not die out at sea.

I have to run again but if you got a GTR in a hot color and the rest of your life was up to that standard you would be getting laid as much as you wanted unless that meant getting woken up by two women giving you blowjobs every morning in which case you would still not be rich enough or setup for that but you would be on the right track.

Sailboat isn't really a panty dropper like those yacht especially those used ones for cheap. I still think sailboats are cool though but I think small sailboat vs luxury powerboat/yacht are 2 different ball games.

Sailboats are money pits as well tho obviously even if you get it cheap.

I currently need new glasses and was looking at these $600 Lindberg Titanium frames which were super dope but I am just going to get a free pair with my insurance.

I don't think materialism and aspiration are necessarily bad things as long as you have the discipline to adhere to your budget. I can easily get those watches or glasses but I don't. Having some sort of logical framework such as the "5% rule" for cars is great for this. Ex maybe watches should be 1% or less of networth.

They would have to be very nice frames and I would have to be super flush to not just pick up my choice at the insurance covered ones. I'm not a watch guy so can't comment there. As long as I'm in the "whatever zone" with cars I don't care. I'm not anti-car guy though. There was a time when I could have done something stupid like lease a "hot car" but I didn't need a car and it would have been really stupid.

You are spot on like every word irt sailboat v yachting and that all boats are major money pits.

This just seems like a boring post but I'll click send anyways. There is a lull in the converse.

Do you agree that if you had say a "hot orange" GTR, developed a gateway designer habit, bought a decent pad that that would increase your chances of wetting the d in punani?

There are other costs associated obv irt to the women that are into this. You have to buy nice dinners, buy them nice bags, and shoes, etc. That is something people don't think about as much. There is the young professional consumption starter pack and then there is the women that it attracts and just like a sailboat or yacht they will most likely be money pits...

I am not going to lie it is kind of fun to live vicarious through someone that could potentially carry out a bro strategy that I could never quite bring to fruition in my 20s.


hiems   United States. Sep 11 2021 01:49. Posts 2155

I think if your goal is attracting women with your car bright orange gtr would be a bad strategy. Gtr is more like if u want bros to like u at the gas station or parking lot.

I feel like some women wouldn't be able to tell the difference between that and a mustang or not know the difference in level between a gtr and 400z or civic type r lol.

If loud and flashy is the strategy probably better off with even like a shit car like a Maserati but ideally bright orange nsx, Ferrari, lambo, McLaren type. Otherwise I think just like...an M3, amg, porsche911 would be a better strategy.

Glasses are important to me since its daily wear I feel like if you are a glasses wearing person its a worth it. Titanium frames also are more robust, don't have screws, and I think you can repair them.

I didn't mention that out at dinner tonight I ran into a friend that is rich as fuck. He invited me out to chill on his baller boat one of these days. Thought that was funny since we were just talking about that. We don't drink so I doubt there will be any champagne con tiddays but probably a nice day out nonetheless.


RiKD    United States. Sep 11 2021 03:00. Posts 6783

Leverage

Labor – I have no labor force and don't want any labor force. Maybe a cleaning lady...

Money – I have no money but obviously would like more

Other – Honestly, coding is probably the best form of leverage for me but if it is just something that intrigues me today but will bore me tomorrow I am wasting my time. I am talking real intellectual curiosity here not chasing after dollar signs. Is the chase ever pure? My paintings ARE pure but do I want to drag them on to Etsy or sell them to people on the street?

I could start a YouTube channel sharing stories about my mental illness and/or drinking, I could start a podcast,

"The best way to scare a Tory is to read and get rich." (IDLES)

"Fuck Tories! I will kill them in someway (probably Minecraft) Mr. Doctor..." (ME)

Anyway, back on track. Maybe if I had a Moog Voyager in my possession there would be a forthcoming fire album on the way but that is not true so I am left with coding, podcast, YouTube Channel, maybe something else. ....

Where does the intellectual curiosity find itself? Fuck, if I know? I am all over the place. Reading about getting rich is not really intellectual besides the fact everyone besides monks and ascetics want to get rich. While reading Nietzsche will make me rich but not always in dollar signs. If I am desperate enough I can't go into some shit job and tell them hire me because I read Nietzsche. I don't even want to go there. Maybe my friend Johnnie who washed dishes at the hippy grocery store after the hypercapitalism takeover who shot himself in the head one night in the employee only bathroom had it right. That will be one of the cards in the deck at my disposal if I have to go back to shit job. THEY WANT MY SOULLL.

THEY WANT MY SOUL
THEY EAT MY SOUL
THEY WANT MY SOUL
THEY EAT MY SOUL

COME TO DADDY COME TO DADDY COME TO DADDY

Fuck off! Now, I am going to have to kill you or me but no one NO ONE IS GETTING MY SOULULULUL

I don't really know where to go after that and I lost my place.

Oh yeah. Service job or worse in this city and suicide is at least 1 of 52 cards in the deck that I am playing with. Ace of spades. Obviously. I don't know if I would shoot myself in the face at the place of my employment but we will see.

It's nicer to think of happier things like permission-less leverage and how intellectual curiosity will save me and make me rich even though the ladder seems like some sort of paradox. Ludic intellectual curiosity will make me rich in dollar signs? Making money will not kill my ludic intellectual curiosity?

I always had a pulse on the potential for a better life with poker. I still remember vividly when I first starting crushing 1/2 in university and throwing my weight around in the bars and how that felt. THE POWER. The first time I made a new Honda Civic in a night. And on and on. Clearly at this point I have to find something beyond poker. Back then there was not really much thought on whether I was intellectually curious enough or not I just did it. Everyone thought I was crazy except for some people on here. That's about it.

And I am not even sure if this site is capable of helping me at this point.

Do I really want to read a book on persuasion? I was in the b2b sales trenches for a few years. If I really want to torture myself I'll go back to door to door. Those are some undervalued salesmen going door to door. We weren't making shit and some of these folks getting in those trenches for years were fucking good. The ones with the capital and the labor force will always try to figure out how to give the labor force the least. It is just how it works.

I am particularly restless and discontent tonight it seems.

My new goal is to get a rossa corsa Italian hot car. If the date goes well enough play this song on repeat and then 3 options:

– sing along
– silence
– act like the song is not playing

I think if I am being honest with myself very difficult coding, smart contracts, and blockchain give me a headache just thinking about it but in reality I don't understand any one of them beyond the surface.

Thank you though didn't know about Solidity. If I am ever man enough I will do a deep dive on that stuff. Now, is probably better than ever.

For some reason I feel like there is such a lack of coders that I can be mediocre with something like python and still have a chance at making an ok living.

Who knows?

Like Perkins, I plan to "die with 0" (I guess I gotta read the book), I spend more on experiences but nothing to crazy, as I said im focusing more on making money, the timing with crypto is perfect to let it pass, so its a grind a couple more years and then I'm going to soft-retire and live off low-risk low-maintenance investments.

It's an ego trap and the thing is, we all know it dont we? yet its like a siren's call luring people in, and yes high status will attract more women, but often not the kind of woman that will still make you happy 20 years after.

I've been blessed by not being particularly attracted to luxury, hell I buy packs of white and black t-shirts a few random shirts from Gap outlet and a couple of old jeans and thats all I wear for years, and when I fantasize about a distant future I see myself in a Cabin in the woods by a big lake doing some random wood work, hapiness is not pleasure, happiness is peace.

Thats just a Bilzerianesque fantasy, it doesn't have to do with sex, its all about ego.

The solution isn't for him to find some ghetto boat or do a Marge Simpson Channel outfit thing, its for him to realize how dumb that pursuit is.


I'm the most stern pro-free market defender here yet I'm more ascetic than 90% of the socialists lol

It's an ego trap and the thing is, we all know it dont we? yet its like a siren's call luring people in, and yes high status will attract more women, but often not the kind of woman that will still make you happy 20 years after.

I've been blessed by not being particularly attracted to luxury, hell I buy packs of white and black t-shirts a few random shirts from Gap outlet and a couple of old jeans and thats all I wear for years, and when I fantasize about a distant future I see myself in a Cabin in the woods by a big lake doing some random wood work, hapiness is not pleasure, happiness is peace.


Happiness is pleasure or more accurately joy. Peace is just more reliable and tends to linger a little longer.

Yeah, the problem which I kept forgetting to mention until your post is that hiems is likely some level of sex addict so he will always want more.

GTR, a Hugo Boss wardrobe, and nice house/condo is a good start for anyone if that is what they want but he may instantly feel less than and want more.

David Cho has access to $300 million and was miserable because of this. $1 billion is not going to make the problem better.

I know someone who has probably $10 million and lives that scaled up life and he loves it and would surely trade his life for having $100 million but doesn't dwell on anything and just lives a pretty good life.

Def respect to you Baal for running old cars into the ground and having a t-shirt and jeans uniform.

We only get 1 life so it is wise to live it how you want.

I like the word independent more than free but they are very similar. Corporations are totalitarian regimes and most governments these days are corporate oligarchies meaning they are totalitarian regimes with an illusion of democracy.

Like Perkins, I plan to "die with 0" (I guess I gotta read the book), I spend more on experiences but nothing to crazy, as I said im focusing more on making money, the timing with crypto is perfect to let it pass, so its a grind a couple more years and then I'm going to soft-retire and live off low-risk low-maintenance investments.


I've read (audiobooked) die with zero and it was pretty good.

I also audiobooked The Gambler not the dostoevsky one but the biography of Kirk Kerkorian and that was also good (basically die with billions) I feel like this is the polar opposite strategy of die with zero but I think both perspectives are valid.

I recently found out about this site "TagTheSponsor.com" where it exposes convos/pics between these Sheikhs convincing these instagram girls to fly out to Dubai to give them rim jobs and let them piss on them on a yacht.

I've always wanted a boat after I saw this Croatian sex tape "Severina Vuckovic gets fucked on a boat" where some rich dude bangs her whilst pouring champagne on her tits like a boss and cumming on her face.

Thats why to me a boat is the pinnacle. After that everything sort of tapers off in terms of experience imo. I am sort of a sex addict lol.





with the amount of whores there is in Dubai one would've thought they wouldn't need to order from across the world

What is the line between intellectual curiosity and THE GRIND? Does it even matter?

For the record I'm not trying to be a billionaire but I just don't think you necessarily have to die with zero is all.

Why wouldn't you want to die with zero?

but die with zero is actually just to spend all your money since you can't take any into the grave, is not an advocacy for poverty, on the contrary.

Yeah I mean I wouldn't say no to being a billionaire or a hundred millionaire but I'm not trying to be a billionaire/hundred millionaire cause its not really realistic for me.

I'm just not convinced yet that you have to try and spend every bit of your money before you die. I still have to think about this one. I did like alot of concepts from his book though. I liked the idea of time-buckets instead of traditional bucket lists, because certain activities you get more enjoyment out of in your youth than in old age...And if I didnt 100% agree or like certain ideas, they were definitely pretty good to think about ideas from a different perspective.

You have 0 once you die, does he mean making sure he has nothing in overall wealth before he dies? If so that's pretty easy to do, you can give it kids or donate it all off before. I don't really get it. You can just set up some system with a person you trust to spend it after your dead, as many rich people do. Andrew Carnegie is still spending his money from beyond the grave for example.

The point is to spend your money while you are alive trying to squeeze the maximum joy out of it, the vast majority of wealthy people die with too much money in their bank accounts and keep working to accumulate for no good reason besides momentum and being used to it.

It's a dumb bourgeois fantasy. You never know when you are going to die, nothing is protecting you, especially not your wealth. Even fitness gurus die from heart attacks, cancer or accidents. Wanna die with zero? Start getting to zero now.

Its also bullshit because even if you are not a big spender you have a certain mentality about making more money that will not change. There isn't going to be a point where you will just fuck off into the woods and not think about trying to get into some investments beyond the 10% a year EFTs or whatever you think you'll be content doing.

You're not going to be much more free than you are now because freedom is more of a state of being than anything else. The mental grind doesn't end just because you get to become a millionaire. Growth is addictive, especially when your life is rather empty outside of business pursuits. You will do like everyone else who gets to a certain point wealth wise and have a will and give your money after you die because you will not know when death comes and will want to have as much as possible in the event that you will survive, even with a terminal illness.

Those who make a peaceful revolution impossible, will make a violent revolution inevitable.Last edit: 13/09/2021 04:17

yeah, i still dont get it...because as loco just said you can't actually control the point of death. I guess you could calculate the mean/median time until death and then spend a % of your wealth every year, starting high and regressively becoming less over time, and it would sorta work out. I cant imagine too many others wanting that kind of lifeplan as most would want to give a decent chunk of it to their kids or do philanthropy instead.

y dont u just read the book then lol. OR DOES IT HAVE TO BE 500 dollar communist book written by PHD or some other twat for you to buy it!!!

he says die with zero means try to get close to zero as possible cant really die with zero cause u dont know when u gonna die.

regarding inheritance he introduces the idea of an early inheritance. ex. if you are 30 years older than your kids, and you die at 80 the money ur kids get at 50 will be less useful than if u gave it to them when you are 65 and they are 35 which makes sense. etc etc.he says the same thing with charity.
