Walmart shows a 24ct case of
or from, you know, the tap, for almost nothing. (I realize it's not free, but even living in a drought-ridden state I am paying well under $10/1000gal which means a gallon of water is under $0.01)
Pre-nups are stupid; it's like saying "I love you dear, but I expect we'll get divorced someday".
Not necessarily. It's just being prepared for something you hope doesn't happen. I don't EXPECT my house to catch fire, but there are smoke detectors and fire extinguishers anyway. I don't EXPECT to wreck my car, but there's a seatbelt cutter and first aid kit in the glove box anyway. I don't EXPECT to suddenly die, but I have life insurance anyway. The list goes on. A pre-nup is just marriage insurance.
We have all grown up in a world ruled by salesmen, thugs, and psychopaths, but that's not the world I'd like to leave to my kids. I'd like them to live in a world led by artists, engineers, scientists, and humanitarians.
Artists, engineers, scientists and humanitarians do not have an unquenchable, innate thirst for power.
Salesmen, thugs and psychopaths do. So they work hard to gather, consolidate and maintain power while decent people don't. It's that simple.
The solution of problems is the most characteristic and peculiar sort of voluntary thinking. -- William James
