Comment Re:We can learn from the termites how to fix Socie (Score 5, Insightful) 158

I can tell by observing you and me of course, that we're not rich. All my rich friends doesn't concern themselves with luxuries because as you said, there's only so much you can snort. The short-term reasons as you listed out are also valid. Namely doing what you love and money just comes in by accident, and earning it as a number game because all their friends have the Mercedes and the only way to "win" is to have bigger numbers.

Most what I've seen though, is the idea of a rich lineage. This is for both the second gen (born rich) and first gen (made rich) dudes I know. They aren't just concerned with themselves, but with godlike generations after them. It doesn't mean they'll spoil their kids with crazy luxuries. It means that their kids will have a wider range of choices in what to do with their life versus us. And their grand-kids and so on. When your objective is that, you wouldn't mind "more" money really.

Not unlike your ex calling you to discuss the "reason" for the break up yeah? Nothing good comes out of whatever reason there were, ever. Why? Because every single relationship is complex and different, much like jobs. The lessons you learned in the last one can mean diddly in the next, well, some are valuable and might help with the next.. ..Until you break up again. Now explain that.

I only say good things when I go as that's the least you can do.

I am glad that the timing of TNG coincided with grade 12 when I was inspired by both my English teacher and Shakespearean plays. Coming home watching star trek with mom (TOS fan) is one of the great memories I have.

Two months ago, I started watching TNG again, and last week finished it once again and I completely agree with your episodes choice. If it wasn't for grade 12 though, ST wouldn't be as good.
