    I'm happy you guys found some use out of this thread. Like Rich said, if even one person takes some of this advise, it's easily worth the effort. Two? That's two more than I expected!

    Keep it up...

    The problem is, if there's an entrenched culture, and you presumably want to do well, it's not always prudent to be the "F you, I do what I want" guy. Competition to make partner is fierce, and so is...

    My theory is this:

    People in Big Law work a lot. This compresses your free time to a very high degree. When this happens, you feel immense pressure to have fun when you're not at work. That,...

    Be very careful here. Financial advisors, for the most part, are like personal trainers. You know how we all laugh here about seeing some poor schmuck at the gym being told to quarter squat on a Bosu...

    Yeah, the less militant (no pun intended) stance works much better. If you strongly argue for the 2nd Amendment, people get defensive and you won't get through. However, if it all starts out very...

    NYC? I couldn't even carry my pocket knife when I was in NYC because the knife laws prohibit carrying knives that "lock" when opened, i.e. any folding knife aside from Swiss Army types. So my folder...

    My left bicep is an idiot. Always confused about what's going on. The guy is dumb as a brick.

    Now, my right bicep is my pride and joy. He's getting his PhD in Swollertrophy.

    Do you not see the difference between banning poor dietary choices and banning fraud and poisons? There's a big difference between banning Funyuns and banning arsenic.

    The problem is not the steepness of the slope, it's the fact that there is a slope to begin with. The government should not legislate diets. Period. They can recommend diets, at best. And in that...

    I'm not sure what this "cultural programming" is. My views lean libertarian, and libertarian is a minority view in the US. You're also arguing against the person and not the argument itself. Is what...

    You are right, but only if you are looking at the immediate to short term results. Let's suppose that tomorrow every person in the country wanted to eat a paleo diet. Would they? Of course not. They...

    I think the latter one is very useful (the general idea, I have not used that specific app). If you can make someone understand the power of compound interest, that's half the battle right there.
