Sometimes I guess, but I am pretty good in enjoying the minutiae. I like talking with my kids over dinner. I like drowsy, sunny naps on the beach. Sometimes it just feels good to get a closet cleaned out, or take me elderly neighbor to the pharmacy. My job is making important differences in the lives of families in need (which doesn't mean I don't have my share of boring office minutiae). [ Reply | More ]

What do you think will cause the crash this time? In 2008, it was the mortgage industry. [ Reply | More ]

If you're that smug about the economy, why does this thread worry you? [ Reply | More ]

I have always been a little curious on how much the women who sell their panties on Reddit make. Must be a booming perverted industry. [ Reply | More ]

It is. It's really crazy. I have met so many girls who'll initially talk a great game about being strong, independent, amazing, have all their shit together etc. Then it'll turn out that they're cam girls or used panty sellers or 'sex workers'. A lot of older people are completely clueless about what Millennials are doing to earn a buck here and there. [ Reply | More ]

Well, except now when they do it, they call it sex-positive feminism and they're very self-righteous about it. [ Reply | More ]

A 24 year old girl who worked at my company was on that sugar daddy site. It's basically prostitution although she never admitted to sleeping with any of them. She said it was for "companionship." And these gross men would give her wads of cash. I forgot what the site is called, sugar daddy something... [ Reply | More ]

This is EXACTLY what I mean. The ORs above are idiots. There is so much so-called companionship among Millennial girls now. [ Reply | More ]

I'm not "TT" and yes, the economy has improved tremendously from how it was in 09-11. This is what the official numbers say aND it is very much what I see around me. At the turn of the decade I know lots of unemployed and underemployed people who were fairly desperate. Now I know very few and those I know are right out of college or coming out of SAHM. Always higher un/underemployment. I don't know anyone forced into prostitution by the economy. But, I didn't in 09 either. The people I know of who are forced into that are either teen runaways or addicted to drugs. Or both. [ Reply | More ]

I think it's an artificial improvement (and I'm obviously not an economist). To me, I see machinations with the rates, etc., but not a lot of real industry or growth at the ground level for everyday people. It's weird, actually. [ Reply | More ]

I used to work with sex workers as a counselor through the courts. A lot of them turn to it, not so much to make ends meet, but because they can make relatively good money in it. I don't think it proves that the economy hasn't improved. It shows that maybe the up and coming generation wants fast money. [ Reply | More ]
