    Austin Allegro got a reaction from Van Lady in Aging and Death - the biggest Red Pills   
    I've seen and heard enough deaths like this to believe that a sudden death while in reasonable good health and a reasonable age (say over 70), eg from a heart attack, is something to be sincerely hoped for, second best only to dying in one's sleep.

    IMO when raising this issue with SJWs the two key points should be: 
    1. How can Our Wonderful NHS™  be expected to work to its full socialist glory when there are fewer and fewer people in the country paying in? Surely this is a betrayal of the principles of its founding fathers, peace be upon them?
    2. How dare we in our arrogant postcolonialism seek to extract the brightest and best of the world's developing countries, the engineers, the lawyers and doctors that flock to our shores, what right have we to take advantage of them when they could be of so much use to their own people, their people who have, unlike ours, suffered under the yoke of western imperialism?

    Most FIRE people are not penny pinchers; they are careful with money and lead frugal lives but most FIRE websites stress that it is important to enjoy your working years as much as your retirement. The general rule is that you work and save hard in your 20s and 30s so that by the time you are over 40 you don't have to anymore. 
    It is not exactly the route I have taken, because I never earned enough to save up the kind of huge deposits (£250k plus) that are required if you want to live off capital only in the UK. I have however incorporated some aspects of FIRE into my life but I base things more on the model in Charles Long's book How To Survive Without a Salary.

    1 This is not a problem as the migrants are net contributors to the economy (the other one has bells on) so the NHS is more than self funding ... honest ....looks away.
    2. The old evil British Empire used to steal the material wealth from the commonwealth such as gold, silver, spices etc but according to the SJWs it is OK to now steal their doctors, nurses and engineers. In UK we have about 1 doctor for 2,500 people in many African and Asian countries it is 1 doctor for 30,000 people, but it is OK as westerns are weaker and inferior to other races and so the west need more doctors.

    It's that women are so coddled nowadays that they feel they don't have to please any man, husband included. What a state of affairs!
    And from Swampy's chart, it looks like a Europe-wide problem.

    I would see the external validation as your husband continuing to find you attractive. I think you need both as a woman you can be healthy at a bmi of 22 the motivation to be bmi 19 is not health but to look good. Imo this was why in the past french women stayed slimmer as there was an expectation of staying thin to look good for your husband as well as eating healthily.

    I did that! Married a beautiful eastern European woman, with lots of romantic ideas in my head about how they are more traditional etc. That's true up to a point, but western nonsense (and obesity) is starting to creep in there as well. 
    I always  thought the real losers were the men who went to Thailand/Philippines/Japan etc to find women, but I can sort of see the attraction of that now. Once you realise that the 'soul mate' stuff is all bollocks, a woman's main attraction is a. if she is easygoing and kind, respectful etc b. if she is physically attractive (in that order).

    True, another thing that has changed is wearing glasses, back in the day they used to say 'men don't make passes at girls who wear glasses' and while it wasn't quite the same stigma for men, it was still generally considered unattractive. The hipsters have changed all that, so much so that some of them wear specs with plain glass in them!

    I'm not sure about that. Sweden seems to have a lot of ideologically zealous hard leftists; I wonder if they might even indulge in anti-democratic activity (eg, dissolving parliament, declaring a state of emergency etc) rather than allow the 'populists' or 'far right' to have any power.

    IMO the 'trans' stuff has nothing to do with sex, 'gender' or anything like that. It's just the latest rallying point for people who want to identify with a 'cause' to an insane and obsessive degree. In the past this role was filled by religious disputes, of the type that Swift satirised as being arguments about which end of an egg should be cracked open when eating it.

    The most famous quote on that topic is ' A coward dies a thousand times before his death, but the valiant taste of death but once' (Shakespeare, Julius Caesar).

    Every time I have dealings with a HR apparatchik I understand just how so many people can be involved in running concentration camps, torture centres, etc.

    I had a woman once get very angry with me when I proposed that the true test of a good wife was 'kindness'.  I think she realised she was a cuntish cow and thus I was saying indirectly nobody should marry her...

    There's that word again. "Proud". It is what it is. I don't think there's a need to feel at war with just about everyone else around you.
    I recently engaged with two trans people in an attempt to find out the answer to what I thought was a perfectly legitimate question.
    I tend to be quite open about things, so might have anticipated more of a welcome for trying to engage, and, I thought, phrased my question gently and respectfully. It got thrown back in my face.
    For context - I know I'm a gay man. How do I know? Because I have no sexual feelings for women. That has never happened. I'm attracted to the same sex.
    The "frame of reference", if you will, is abundantly clear. Is that "self-identification?"
    No, I don't think it is. I think it is fact.
    In the same way that "I am a man", "I am British" and "today is Tuesday" are also facts.
    What I'd like to know is: if you're a man, but you think you are a woman:
    How do you know?
    What is the "frame of reference?"
    I'm not suggesting that people here are well-equipped to answer that, but it strikes me that the activists' method of screaming the word "transphobe" at everyone else is never going to work. "Oh, whatever. You're boring me now" seems a perfectly reasonable response to being screamed at.
    It strikes me that acceptance of homosexuality came about because people grew to realise that others are genuinely different, born that way, and no threat to anyone else. Therefore expressing your own bigotry says more about you than it does about anyone else: you don't start making fun of paraplegics on buses, for example, we expect higher standards.
    The activist camp is going in precisely the wrong direction and were it to engage and actually attempt to educate and inform as opposed to insulting people, perhaps it might get somewhere.

    Indeed, I think the "you can't handle a real woman" shaming tactic is increasingly losing it's effect.
    Where 'handle' means 'aren't attracted to' and 'real' means 'obese, arrogant, nasty, and not terribly bright'.
    And yes, given that definition I admit it; I can't handle a real woman.

    Well, fat men with even fatter women sometimes.
    But yes, young fat men these days end up with nobody, and the skinny young man who, 20 years ago would have paired up with another skinny young plain jane girl next door woman, pairs up with a landwhale and seems perfectly OK with that.
    But the 'hot' thing tends to be the luck of the draw in terms of genetics, or blokes who are naturally pathologically arrogant/cocky and thus can keep the tingles coming (the single mum my mate is dating, her sister, and her mother all chose to have kids with blokes who 'treated them badly'....funny that). I know quite a few mid-30's blokes who, whilst not roided up Mens Fitness cover models, are lean athletic blokes with jobs, cars, houses ect...and they've effectively retired from the dating market because all that's available to them are obese women.

    I think they mean "super" as used in "supertanker". 
    I actually find the video very sad. She's all dainty and feminine as she eats it to camera, when on her own she'll be eating fistfulls of it whilst crying. There's no other way she can get so enormous without self-loathing IMO. Fatties often eat little in public and order diet cokes, they pig out big time in private.

    .....and I saw another couple like that on the way home.
    Early 20's. He was skinny. She was so fat that it looked difficult for her to balance on the little chairs outside the cafe that they were sitting on.
    Is being skinny as a bloke as damaging to your sexual market value as being an obese woman now? Do skinny blokes have to do a steroid cycle for the privilege of dating someone who isn't going to be diabetic by the time they're 30? Fuck sake these blokes need to get a grip.
