Happy Holidays!

And take money!

Still, if you can't have kids, gotta have pets I guess.

I just made a chart for some stupid argument I'm having on youtube now:

real per-capita (age 15-64) YOY debt take-on.

I don't need a disclaimer.

Gotta have pets!

I would have been willing to have one kid (as a compromise for someone who wanted many) but that was about it, lol. :)

The odd part to me is that they were tracking each other so well initially.

I wrote a post on this topic.

CPI vs. GDP Deflator

Wow. That was more than 4 years ago. Where does the time go?

Mark - Thanks for all the charts - very interesting and educational. Graphics get across concepts that reams of texts cannot.

It's nice to have the vast majority of the comments be friendly. It is certainly not what I expected.

I actually expected a few trolls to wander in at some point and make my life miserable enough to make me want to stop posting. It wouldn't take much. I do it because I enjoy it. Take the enjoyment away and there wouldn't be much left. It's not like I'm trying to publish an economic paper or make money with pop up ads.

Hey, I'm a worst case planner more often than not. I think that's fairly clear based on what I post here.

Some say it is a horrible way to live. I disagree strongly. When you plan for worst case, life is full of pleasant surprises! Seriously.

Your comment certainly qualifies as a pleasant surprise! Thank you! :)
