And where do those stats come from? How does it cost $45k to throw a guy over a fence?
First and foremost, good on the guy for climbing the coaster. Jersey and NY need help, and anything which keeps the cameras rolling up there is right to me.
You guys should really chill on the politics, it’s a total waste of energy. I mean, really? You’re swallowing that pill still? That’s what the pigs in power want, for us to bicker over what side is right as they stuff their pockets with our money. No side is right. They are both wrong. Way wrong. Why? Look at their paycheck, and then look at yours. Then look up the definition of the word “complacent.”
The country is so ****ed up because most of the people in it live beyond their means, so if you want to blame somebody, blame your neighbor who has racked up $150,000 worth of debt that they’ll never pay, yet still drives a 5 series BMW. Status trumps sanity these days.
The rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer, that’s the reality, and it’s sad. Been that way for the past decade, I know, I’ve been living hand-to-mouth the whole time. Until people wise up and lead a more salubrious and simple life, it’s not going to change. No matter how much a politician talks about change, the bottom line is that they do not have that power, only we, the people do. Unless we change, unless people focus more on hard work, healthy living, and minimizing this malignant materialism, we’re going to keep getting fatter, dumber, and deeper in debt. Until we change, this downward spiral is going to keep spinning. Wake up. Simplify.
I like this! I am so into the tiny house movement, I drive my wife crazy dreaming of selling everything, building a tiny house, raising my chickens and just being free from all the stuff. I would rather be poor and free than live like a rich man and be a slave to debt. Life is soo short, the older you get the faster life moves and before you know it you are gone. Forget about collecting things and collect experiences(not that I quite live up to that ideal ). That said I still respect anyone who wants to go out make a million dollars and build a mansion. If that's what makes you happy go for it, it's just not for me.Quote:

Wow, Swellinfo turned into a combination of CNN, and Fox News. I heard guys talking politics in the lineup yesterday. This is fantastic......or not.
This thread topic, however, definitely got side tracked from the original topic, which was the guy who climbed the roller coaster.
