"I can think of a ton I can do with 10 years, including hang out with my honey and da boys.  What can I do with $10M?  I already have everything material that I want.  OK, maybe my own island or something.  But worth 10 years?…"

Hypotheical: 10 million or 10 years?

Hi all,Just a hypothetical I saw on another forum and thought some of you may find interesting.The question is as follows: if you were offered 10 million (of your country's currency) in exchange for 10 years of your life, would you take it? The original version said that you would age 10 years as soon as you got the money but everyone else (if you have kids etc) wouldn't.Would be interested to see people's thoughts on this.See More

"Forgot one more, I think 'ready meals' and takeaways taste better than home-cooking. I think of home-cooking as being like trying to cut your own hair rather than go to a barber etc. "

What college freshmen should know

This is inspired by a post of Muir's about what he wants the kids to learn, but I wanted to make it specific to college students.  Because I'm brainstorming for a possible freshman-seminar class, and I'm interested in topics that are important to making educated citizens or at least will be stimulating -- each topic to take a week or two at most.  What do you wish you or yours had learned in college that wasn't covered in regular gen-ed or major? or just a fun topic you think would be of…See More
