Yeah, I'm addicted to reading this forum.* I could be off learning new programming languages, exercising, getting better at guitar, learning to play the piano, building websites, thinking up a side business, but instead I come here.
This forum is great and provides lots of value to me.
Humor and Life Interest
:* It's fun just to read stories from other posters, and I can usually find posts that make me chuckle or laugh.
:* I also enjoy posts about what to expect in retirement and what people are doing in retirement--they give me ideas of what I might want to do.
: The retired posters (and maybe some unretired ones) are my source of product recs. The ones with engineering backgrounds have the time, seem to enjoy analyzing stuff, and are happy to share their findings.
:* Ironically, I skim the "Fire and Money" posts when they get too complicated for me.* I have settled on Bernstein-like slice-and-dice with mostly index funds.
I love this forum but I think I need to visit less often.* Maybe just on weekends...
