I'd rather stick my balls in a vise than live in most inner cities. I'd rather set myself on fire while sticking my balls in a vise than live in Seattle (or Portland, or San Francisco), how you people can stand the level of mental illness that pervades the cities, I'll never understand.

Whatever, grandpa. It's not the 1970s, you know.

We do studies which do measure self-reports of alcohol consumption over long duration periods (e.g. years).

In general, what most of these studies tend to say is:

A. Don't binge drink.

B. No, seriously, stop.

C. If female, there tend not to be positive effects of drinking more than one drink per day. No, don't add up all the alcohol from the week and drink it at one party.

D. If male, 2-3 drinks a day may have a positive effect. Some of that is because men tend to be bad at socializing. Some of the positive impact and lower stress is from the socializing. Drinking all this alcohol in one sitting by yourself in the dark is probably very bad for you. Get a drink or two with family or friends, especially at a meal. Drinking on an empty stomach tends to be bad for you.

E. Don't drive or operate machinery while drinking or shortly after that.

F. We told you to stop binge drinking. Seriously. Stop doing it. Especially in the basement and then passing out.

G. Stop writing code when you're drinking. No, it doesn't help.

Good thing it takes longer to work someone to death if you're paying them a little bit. Slavery is for suckers.

The thing is....NONE of these "gig" jobs are there for you to make a living on...that's not their purpose.

They are there to allow you to make some money on the SIDE, when you have free cycles.

Not every single job out there is one meant to make a career and living from, when did this thinking come about?

Perhaps from the fact that everybody needs a job to make a living on? And that people who have a job that they make a living on, have no free cycles?
