The Time vs. Money Dilemma, my friend.
I am about to share something I found worth reading even if I do not necessarily agree with everything that's written inside. You might find it useful https://jamesclear.com/value-of-time

I don’t like the lengthy article because it is based on a wrong assumption:

Quote
If you know your [working] time is worth $60 per hour, then you should always pay $49 for shipping [a new $19 bag] instead of spending one hour shopping at the store.

Most people can’t (easily) put in an extra hour of work and get paid for it. So your time is worth way less: a week has seven days of 24 hours each. Making financial decisions as proposed in the article makes you poor very quickly. And of course the real answer to the writers ‘dilemma’ is not buying the stupid new bag in the first place, or when really needed get a different one in a local shop without the relatively insane shipping fee.

Fiat is not money, but we are learnt at a very young age it is. It is designed to keep you spinning the hamster wheel. Fortunately Bitcoin gave us an exit.

The article does state to include all the time you are leading up to the time you are actually paid. For most people, this means the extra hour to get to work and to get back home. For the rest of us, I dare say include the extra hours you're not working as that is time that keeps on ticking. Include the time you are sleeping as well. You are not getting paid to sleep, not unless you are in some sleep experiment or something.

So your time is indeed worth less if you divide a day by 24 instead of by 8 (or how many hours you are considered working).

OT: Not sure how many of you are gamers, but saw this on Twitter and had to share for the lulz. Had a lot of fun crashing a 747 onto Epstein island, along with a bunch of other folk.



Given the current cancel culture climate, I was afraid to give this post the merits I normally would, but then I remembered where my sack was and proceeded onward with my regularly scheduled "highly toxic" merit giving.



PLEASE NOTE

All WO merit givings in the future will need to be accompanied with the following Merit Consent Form, filled out like this one:



I, nutildah, acknowledge giving 2 merits to BobLawblaw for the above-quoted post (please quote at minimum the portion of said post you found to be meritable) for the following reasons:

☐ Insightful
☐ Interesting
☐ Educational
☑ Answers a question I had
☑ Potentially helpful to others
☐ Entertaining
☑ Straight up made me laugh

☑ References previously established points of discussion
☐ Spite / pity / irony merit
☐ Simply acknowledging the merited post was seen
☐ This user was only a handful of merits away from ranking up, so...
☐ Don't have a reason
☐ None of the above -- please explain here: ____________________________________

Clarification of how the merited post applies to the boxes checked:

I had heard about the newest MS Flight Simulator game and its huge list of supported airports and wondered if Pedo Island's airstrip was on there. Thanks to Bob I now know that yes, it is, or at least the island itself exists (I forget if it actually has an airstrip on it).

I ONLY visit the WO thread on bitcointalk.org. I always have a tab open on WO thread. If they delete WO thread, they delete bitcointalk.org for me. WO members are the real bitcoiners. No fake shit and bullshit like on reddit and twitter. I don't read this WO thread to post for some merit, otherwise I could have been Legendary a long time ago. Been on this site since 2011, only registered in 2013. Who gives a fuck about merit when you have bitcoin.

If nobody gives a fuck about merit they would have had no problems with disabling merit on this thread  Roll Eyes

If you're not getting any merits from this thread, then you don't really have a problem, right? Unless you give a ...

You can ignore merit and just mind your own business. Nobody would have a problem with that.

yep, our cover is about to blow. they will soon know that we are actually only 4 methheads in a Luton basement with 20 alt accounts each. I told you that this obvious attempt to gain those precious merits will fail. soon we will have to revert back to painting road signs.

SwayStar123, I read your thread about WO and about your frustration with posting your TA here.

I can't speak for the others, but if your TA is truly backed by something other than wild ass guess then personally I would welcome it here. Perhaps in the past if you were posting bearish TA out of the blue, then it might have been taken as a bit of trolling. A non-biased, no agenda look at TA would likely be most welcome.

Also, many people that hang out on the WO thread are unapologetically pro-BitcoinTM, many OGs and maximalists here. So if you are not in line with that, tread lightly.

You know what? Because you started a pertinent discussion that went for 7 pages over the course of only a few hours and have also demonstrated a willingness to be reasonable, I'm gonna go ahead and help you rank up, even if it somewhat ironically furthers your conspiracy theory about the merit flow being overabundant in WO. You've been here for a while so I think you deserve it.

I'll need to add one more box to the checklist for my form:

☑ Unexpectedly demonstrated a willingness to be reasonable

Also maybe this one:

☑ Drunk meriting

There are a thousand other threads where you can do that and get a higher probability of someone else out there clicking on the +merit button.

You don't just go on the internets to get feel good validation, it doesn't really work that way. Have to lower your expectations.

There is a price to pay to get merits, and there is no guarantee that you will even get any. That cost is time and posting everywhere else but here.

If you are going to post here, you would do well to get a feel for what is acceptable here by reading a few dozen or hundred pages back and see how it goes.

Think of this as migrating to a new country. You apply for your visa. You intend to live there. You intend to work there. You have to get along and have the same cultural experience. You have to stop complaining and accepting what it is to be there. You have to fit in.

Otherwise, you won't, and you'll suffer, and not get a job (if you were looking for one) and go broke. A lot of people who wanted to come to America or USA or Canada or Australia or England or Singapore ... they don't really make it and go back to their original countries. They tried to change a system, when what they should have been doing is change themselves. You have to work hard and blend in. Or find out a place or group there where you can do it.
