In case you don’t read all the comments (note that it is possible to get all the comments in a single feed), I wanted to highlight an idea from Oasis in a recent comment of having a downsizing party. You invite your friends to your home, the price of admission being a bottle of wine […] ...

There are, as far as I know, two sets of morals which have dominated thought for the past century. Postmodernistic interpersonal value acceptance. Basically, the widely spread “I’m okay, you’re okay” approach to interpersonal acceptance. Followers believe that it is impossible to establish an optimal best set of ethics. Moral behavior then becomes a question […] ...

Outgoing people have a psychological need to interact with other people most of the time. This can pose a big problem for extraverted early retirees as most people at the same age or even 10 or 20 years older will away at their jobs for over 10 hours a day (work+lunch+commute) for 5 or 6 […] ...

Ever wondered why some comments appear more than others and why some comments only appear on blogs with many readers? The explanation is fairly simple: human psychology and statistics. Great timing.

This is a guest post from Paul Wheaton from permies.com which is the home of the permaculture forums. (You may have noticed the links I put up on the right recently + in a couple of weeks there’ll be a podcast interview with me on Paul’s site.) Permaculture and ERE has a lot in common […] ...

If you have a high speed (DSL or faster) internet connection and you like music but find yourself frustrated with radio stations playing the same music over and over again head over to Pandora.

The kettlebell has been accredited with increasing the weight of underweight people and decreasing the weight of overweight people. This suggests that there is a right weight. For all around human challenges, that is, not extremes like bodybuilding which produces overheavy athletes or marathon running which produces underheavy athletes, that perform intensive work, I do […] ...

Occasionally, albeit rarely, I get a comment that one has a duty to work insofar one able-bodied vis-a-vis able-brained. This is a fairly complex comment which suggests either socialist or collectivist beliefs, that is, everybody has a duty to work and a right to eat in the sense that first and foremost people have a […] ...

This is an easy to cook dish which tastes great because it contains bacon (well, duh!). Obviously, it should not be repeated too often because it contains bacon (well, duh!).
