SR-2K$ Lounge: How the hell does NuRK work?

The best way to fix wealth inequality, and perhaps the easiest, is to have actual goddamn interest rates not controlled by the federal reserve. It’s not much of a recovery if we’ve had sub-1% interest rates for almost 10 years. Actually, large swathes of Europe as well as Japan have negative interest rates. That’s right, you have to pay the bank extra (above just your maintenance fees) for the privelage of lending them money.

If we had real interest rates, people could actually do this thing called save their money, rather than being basically forced into the stock market (to get return) and getting eaten alive every 8 or so years.

But frankly, so many things need to happen besides this. But all this probably belongs in the finance thread, so I’ll settle for just the above.

My grandfather passed a week ago too man. It was tough to see my grandmother sad like that. But hearing his obituary made me appreciate life a whole lot more and made me realize that death is inevitable, but if I live making my family and friends have a good life then it will have all been worth it. Try not to be too distraught by her passing, she did what she could to give you a good life.

Its time for you to do the same with others,

I’ll be taxed with such soon. If you need to talk hit me up.

Stay smiling, its what she’d have wanted id venture to bet.

Sorry for your loss Po. Losing a loved one is one of the hardest things in life to deal with. Just remember that you’re always going to be an extention of her in this world.

We used to go crunk in the clubs back in the late 1990s and early 2000s when songs like this came out:

It’s such trash that we can’t vote members out of a thread. People have been banned on herefor the stupidest shit, yet when almost a whole thread comes together and say they want a dude out nothing can be done. It was even a legitimate vote. Dude said “If I get soso dislikes on this post I’ll leave forever” and he never did.

@“po pimpus” sorry to hear that, stay strong.

I’ve been in the same boat as you my brother. Its an incalculable, unfathomable emotional loss. My great grandmother raised me for much of my early years and was instrumental part of my and my entire family’s life, I can only imagine how your grandmother had made similar sacrifices and had shown much kindness and generosity throughout the years. The only small solace that helped me get through my depression was knowing that the kindness and values she shared lives on through me and the many people she impacted.

Hang in there my friend…

oh yeah, Elizabeth Gillies would get ravaged too. She was on some FX show in recent years; forgot the title of it. I used to daydream of how great it would be to watch her and Ariana kiss and have a lot of R-rated “late night Cinemax” fun with each other. :triumph:

This week is too damn slow… Monday seems like a few years ago.

Just saw a man rocking an umbrella that matched his dress shirt.

I need to get on that level of dandy.


#161

We’ve had a rash of awful trolls. There needs to be a bar set where if you’re not a certain level of funny you get permabanned.


#162

Someone remind me to unban him in like a week or two.


#163

I don’t think anybody will do that.


#164

How are Epidemic and Cyn still in jail? They been in there so long they are about to get married to one another.


#165

@“po pimpus” My condolence man.

Life-tip: do not get jailed in Philippine.


#166

I always find that funny: if there are 3,800 inmates in that jail it’s because you can fit 3,800 there, not only 800. So it’s a non-problem for me.

Like a brazilian politician once said:

“If you don’t want to suffer there it’s easy: just don’t steal, murder or rape people.”

Or something like that…
