have fun paying all those loans back.

I don't have any debt of any type to anyone, except revolving 30 day credit that's always paid before due. I don't even have a car loan or a mortgage, and what little education-related debt I had was paid off within 3 years of obtaining my bachelor's degree. My graduate education was on a full scholarship. So lick my nuts.

No student loans here, either. Of course, I had to get shipped off to Iraq and got pumped full with an experimental anthrax vaccine that made me dizzy with a heavy fever, but hey, it worked out okay!

EDIT: I think.

Obviously, I am not talking about your personal debt. I have no idea of your personal finances (well, until this post). Any way, the fucked up state of affairs in your country (and Canada and the UK) is that it's actually gives someone bragging right to say you have no car debt.

What I was referring to is the massive student loan debt bomb ticking away in your country, currently well north of a trillion dollars. I know you are smarter than to think the US taxpayer isn't going to pick up a big chunk of that.

The messed up part is the education system. It is the education system which fails to impart the necessary knowledge to facilitate informed decisions about incurring school loan debt (and debt in general). And strangely, no one seems to pay attention to the inherent conflict of interest in that failing. The same corrupt system also tries to deflect blame onto others.

Everything dems touch goes haywire. They made student loans easier to get. Universities responded immediately by raising tuition. Result: Lots of people who shouldn't have college education have it now, and they have debt. Of course, they cannot find a job because they still are losers and there are too many of them, the education system is overproducing. Instead of going to learn a trade and have a job they have a loan and no job now. That's the way dems make people happy.

Yes, and so, now that I think about it, I agree with Juniper: the time for half-measures is over; it's time for full red-boner Marxism!

Just so you know, when I moved to Idaho, I could barely fit in size 46 jeans. Now I can fit in them, along with a Glock 32, two extra magazines, and a tac-light. I've also had to drill another hole towards the inside of my belt for when I'm not carrying all that. This has happened over the past year and a half as the result of permanent dietary changes.

As for alcoholism, I'm averaging a six pack every month.

As for my personality...well...I...uh...

Congratulations on your achievement of fitting comfortably into size 46 jeans.

What size did you wear at the end of boot camp?

I hardly suggested marxism.

What you want to do is greatly reduce loans and fees, but still give those who need help a little extra. What that means is a massive cut back in numbers. Universities have responded with huge fee hikes, massive hiring of admin staff, and massive infrastructure expansion. This happened in Britain too. We need to stop people from going into debt over useless degrees, and get them into useful trades.

I wouldn't call it an achievement. It's just something that happened when I started eating better to live longer. I wasn't expecting to be able to lose weight, at least not without trying. I guess this is just what happens when you stop eating artificial sweeteners and stay away from anything with trans fats or "partially hydrogenated" on the label. I just thought I was naturally a fat-ass. And it's almost time to drill another hole in the belt.

I think my service uniforms were 36". I just went in my storage containers to check my final set of dress blues. The trousers are 38R.

What helped me shed the pounds is big healthy meals. That prevents me from snacking on unhealthy things. I am vegetarian, but if you stick to meat and salad my guess is the pounds will melt away. That, and a shit load of exercise (but I'd stick to the fun stuff. Fuck running) helped me get rid of 20kg.

I actually refuse to do exercise. I've found it just makes me more hungry.

I also don't like exercise for exercise sake. I fucking hate running, for example.

I do, however, like sports, and outdoor things like hiking and walking. I focus on fun, not exercise.

Being hungry is fine though.

I heard by a cow-orker that she know someone, bodybuilder. 2 weeks before an event, he only eats fish. Not even a drink of water (binds salt).
Kind of a diet to lower the body fat?

for the 5011th time - I do love having the run. So fulfilling. Cleanses the mind. And some beer after a friday run...omg! But cause of ailments of mine, not possible

As Martin Mull wisely said, running makes the cigarettes fall out of my pocket and the ice spill out of my drink.

They way to live the longest is to spend as much time as possible stationary, preferably lying down, and use as little energy as possible. Of course, you also have to not consume any more calories than you are burning, so that basically means not moving and also not eating.
