I like how your parents support you with € 600 each month and you save € 650 which means there's technically no need for your parents to support you.

I know this question will pop up and it seems a bit off :D Further explanation: i study maths and economics, which is not the easiest thing to study. In the first 2 semesters i couldnt work at all because of that. And since my parents dont want me to be like "oh i DESPERATELY need a job" they supported me. Which they still do because i dont know how long i can work and study at the same time. This semester is kinda easy, so i can work 16h a week and get much money. Next semester i maybe wont get anything. My sister got the same anmount, studied the (nearly) same, and she just worked like 16h per month, not per week. So they thought, that they must support me the same way, even though i make more. And they dont want me to punish me for working. E.g.: if i work only for 500€ and they wouldnt support me anymore, i would be fucked - thats what the saving is for.

Tl;dr: my parents are nice people and want me to conventrate on my studies rather than having to work. Although i like working :)

Edit: and i paid them a pretty large anmount of money beforehand to pay for a car. So its kinda like money i lent my parents :) but with a high interest rate because they support me my whole time as a student and not only 3 years :D

People might think it's evil to put all plus more of the parents money into savings, but any self respecting parent should be really proud, you save up a lot of money.

No. His parents provide for his safety cushion.

It’s crazy how after John Adams it took more than 200 years for another president to live to 90 years old.

It's more impressive that a 1700s dude lived to 90.

Thanks to /u/zeeg617 for the awesome post today! After reading through some of the comments I thought I would try and fill some of the requests made.

I could be wrong but I hear that if you don't take child deaths into account, life expectency wasn't like people were dying off at 40 like everyone thinks.

Roy Moore vs. "Half your age plus seven" [OC]

Roy Moore vs. "Half your age plus seven" [OC]

plus 7? ohhhh

I strongly believe we have an incomplete data set.

"someone told me it was plus/minus seven, I'm pretty sure that's what it is, yup"

If you're the type to be limber enough to perform the mental gymnastics to convince yourself that a 30-year old man trolling for 16-year olds is consistent with "Christian values," I'd also like to point out that there are two data points on the chart to the right of the red line.

Almost half of Fortune 500 companies were founded by American immigrants or their children

Almost half of Fortune 500 companies were founded by American immigrants or their children

What's the percentage of Americans descended from immigrants? If you go back enough isn't it pretty much 98%?

This study isn't really about "going back far enough," it's looking specifically at first- and second-generation families compared to more established ones. As for your question though, only about 0.9% of Americans are actually Native American, with the rest presumably having immigrant ancestors.

Sure but after a generation how detached are you really from the resource network of the majority of Americans? I'm a first generation immigrant to the US and sometimes feel like I even had an advantage over some established Americans because my parents valued education very much and made sure I went to college. And my children (2nd generation) will be indistinguishable from the average citizen in every way.

I think that’s the point. Immigrants and their children often know the value of a good education and, therefore, seem more prone to entrepreneurship.

According to Airbnb customer service, 3% to 7% of stays turn into a “nightmare” (that’s over 2 million ruined trips per year). Here’s what’s most likely to go wrong on your next stay. [OC]

How much are new hosts screened if at all? I would think that’s the main problem, you’re literally staying in some random persons place.

This past September, my wife and I experienced two consecutive Airbnb nightmares that left us and our 10-month-old son on the street in Europe frightened, vulnerable and with nowhere to go.

So we decided to conduct a Airbnb guest research study to find out what’s most likely to go wrong.

My data sources were five 3rd-party online review sites where I reviewed and categorized 839 different reports from the past 12 months:

*Better Business Bureau

*Trustpilot

*Site Jabber

*Consumer Affairs

*Product Review

I visualized the data using Google Sheets and added the text with Sketch App.

You can learn more about all of my research on my article: https://www.asherfergusson.com/airbnb/

Lastly, here is my video showing the scammer who got us and how he’s created four fake Airbnb accounts in the past 6 weeks even after I’ve reported him to Airbnb:

There is no screening at all. It's even possible to list a place you don't own with photos downloaded from Zillow. It's completely unregulated :(

Edit: I was asked to resubmit this post by the mods because I used the sensational word, "nightmare" in the title. Here is the new post.

The problem is AirBnB doesn't market itself as you described (cheap hostel-esq digs). It markets itself as a sharing economy alternative to hotels and other traditional lodging options, which of course its not. But you're blaming the victim, when it's their marketing that is at fault.

I wish my wife's grad school cost as much as my alcohol. Instead I now have an alcohol addiction and no wife.

Every time I see these now I just sit in amazement at how little of these people's income is going to rent.

check out /sub/stopdrinking

They are an awesome group and in the past they have been a huge fucking help to me. I have found a level of drinking that I can live with and don't feel is destructive. If you think your drinking is destructive then please pm me, check out the sub, or just talk to friend about it. The first step is admitting there is a problem.

I live in the country side. Kyoto or Tokyo or Osaka would be WAY different.

So, you live paycheck to paycheck?

Also, $150 on apps a month? You might have a serious problem.

Your monthly entertainment/shopping budget is like my annual budget. Holy shit.

So, you live paycheck to paycheck?

Excluding bonuses and equity, yes, for now. Well, only if you count optional "fun" expenses.

“Apps” includes tons of streaming services, a bit of web hosting and a VPS, and more. It sounds crazy until you consider that part of it replaces a traditional cable bill.

Volcanic eruption happening at Mount Agung, shown by NASA satellite that measures sulfur dioxide in the atmosphere [OC]

Volcanic eruption happening at Mount Agung, shown by NASA satellite that measures sulfur dioxide in the atmosphere [OC]

It is currently erupting and has been for nearly a week. The airports in the area have closed, and all that sulfur dioxide is what is being spewed out - along with lots of ash.

So this volcano is erupting now, or just in the early stages?

In case anyone else didn't know what a Dobson Unit is.

Dobsin Unit - A unit of measurement for the total amount of ozone in the atmosphere above a point on the earth's surface, one Dobson unit being equivalent to a layer of pure ozone 0.01 mm thick at standard temperature and pressure.

The airports are actually back open today. The wind shifted.

"The Very Hungry Caterpillar" Fruit Consumption Chart by Day [OC]

"The Very Hungry Caterpillar" Fruit Consumption Chart by Day [OC]

I cross-referenced the book and video/short for the fruit data, and compiled it over the course of a few weeks. Following that I put it all together in Adobe Illustrator.

edit - in response to what has been a point of controversy throughout this presentation, I'd like to offer the reasoning behind Saturday/Sunday's exclusion from this graph, as well as their accompanying foods...

With what grant money was allocated, there was only enough budget to digitally enhance five pieces of fruit for digital format, ie: the five pieces shown in the graph.

Seeing as there's definitely some strong feelings regarding what some would call the best day of food, I'll make an effort to follow this piece with another that encompasses the entire week of the VHC's endeavor.

Thank you to everyone who's participated in peer review.
