Comment: marriage was a disaster for me (Score 1) 950

Thanks to my marriage, I'm on the hook for 20 years of giving up 20% of my paycheck. Although I love my daughter, every single other aspect of my marriage destroyed me -- loss of income means living in a basement apartment with little sunlight but centipedes and poor heating because that's all I could afford. I was an emotional wreck for a year. My wife didn't love me, and attempting to find a girlfriend since then has been fruitless -- the women I meet who are willing to date me are hardly the cream of the crop. I'm better off watching porn than seeking the admiration of women who themselves seek the money I don't have.

In some cultures, tattoos and body modifications are considered an assault on god's temple (your body). Although it's an instinct with me, more than learned behavior, I subconsciously wonder why people with tattoos hate themselves so much they cover their body with writing (or puncture wounds, or metal placed in private places). You can express your individuality in a number of ways, why do it to your body in such an irreversible manner?

Apple stopped being a computer company with the success of the iPod, then iPhone, then iPad. They're a technology devices company whose products are geared at consumers, not a computing company focused on particular industries as they were in the 1990's (publishing, audio, video). Mac sales numbers are a footnote to the money they're printing with iPhones, and the Apple watch is just a fresh way to get their BRAND recognition on the street (since you keep your iPhone in your pocket or your purse). It doesn't matter how many Apple watches sell -- they're just more income for the Apple behemoth.

The Force is what holds everything together. It has its dark side, and it has its light side. It's sort of like cosmic duct tape.
