Ohh now don't be silly, another forum talking about you, surely you jest.

Besides, it's incredibly entertaining every once in a while to just a waste a day and watch y'all get your panties bunched up, except maybe for that one who needs to lose 30 pounds or so. ;)

Retirement isn't for everyone I guess.

Regardless, I could out troll anyone I'm sure.

But whatever will we do without all this life advice? Make decisions based on what is best for us personally within the contours of our chosen careers, instead of the outdated musings of some internet guy who has decided to spend his hard-earned retirement time provoking and patronizing strangers on the internet? Absurd.

Pretty sure we young'uns could out troll anyone.

And why is Stark thinking of us in our panties? :shock:

Oh please. I was raised by a Quaker-schooled language lover who whipped off the NY Times crossword in pen as a way to relax.
I can verbally eviscerate someone and never run afoul of any forum profanity rules, without even hauling out my thesaurus. :P :lol:
But that's not going to happen. Because digital insult duels or trophy troll hunting just isn't my sort of fun. ;) 8-)

My guess is that a few of you will just keep going on being miserable, unable to set and achieve life goals, and then die before you even know what happened.

If I could see just one person move out of expensive locales into a more reasonable cost of living,
or just one person to go back to school for the degree they really want,
or just one person to better understand business from the employer's point of view,

then I think I'd know of somebody who will be happier than they are today.

Anything would be an improvement over the never ending complaining, life's short!

Looks like the silly saying started way back in the 60's, wouldn't expect you to know about it.

Hahahaha oh man, you really don't know! I can't decide whether or not to tell you, but thank you for the genuine laugh, I was hoping to get something like this out of you. Suffice it to say that you have nothing to offer, and all of us knew that from the start. Kudos for dropping all pretense and going straight for the "you'll die miserable" route, but I think we all know who's most miserable here.

Here's a fun exercise, try writing your obit and see how it sounds to you.
Remember, you have to tell the truth and most obits are pretty positive in nature.

Honestly, if you keep going at this rate it's just going to read "died of irony." This is amazing.

I really am so confused why you are so against me, and also semi-creeped out by it :?

Hold up. Expensive locale? Didn't you commute 100+ miles a day so you could live ON THE BEACH? California is the most expensive of the expensive locales. Also, thanks for contributing to pollution! I'm sure while you were doing so, you complained about it even when you were fulfilling your dream. Complaining is a part of life - it doesn't mean you aren't thankful or living your dream. Your black and white view of the world is endemic to your generation, I think.

Also, you can stop searching. I moved from NYC to somewhere in the midwest some years ago, to go back to school for the degree I wanted. I took plenty of classes on how to be effective in-house counsel for companies, so don't try lecturing me on understanding business from an employer's POV. The employer isn't anything without its employees, and the employees aren't anything without the employer. It's more of a symbiotic relationship than you seem to believe.

If you don't want to hear us complaining, why are you in the VENT thread? Are you so bored with your life that you need to come try to poke at strangers? I hope when I'm your age, I'm not so bored that I'm posting pseudo-life advice at midnight. :?

Generically speaking, shouldn't that read "within the contours of the life one has elected to portray here in any given month"?

A glimpse is all anything offers, without knowing people personally. You're truly advocating that stark's stalkerish behavior (please go view that other forum people migrated to during the last crash when stark complained about not missing many people here), the ridiculous and vitriolic posts he has made and then deleted about people over the years are nice?

I'm not sure how this relates to you'll all die miserable and can't achieve life goals. What on earth? Sharing on the internet might not be considered normal behavior but surely saying things like what he does is not either.

I mean, who cares, it's the internet. But how the hell do you link happiness exercises to people who don't even appear unhappy? It's really very bizarre.
