      Economists hate this one SECRET HACK you can do to avoid poordom. Among investmentology specialists it is a well guarded secret that switching to a making money framework instead of the popular losing money framework has a long term net positive effect on your private economy.

          My bootstraps broke when I pulled them harder.

          Turns out the local company that made bootstraps for 125 years was bought out by a hedge fund, which promptly fired all of the workers and subcontracted manufacturing to a company in Sri Lanka who could make them much cheaper by using inferior materials and by paying the Sri Lankan workers in 6 months what a fired local worker made in a day.

          Ironically, the hedge fund CEO with the MBA he received as a legacy admission to Cornell only wears slippers because fuck you, I’m the boss.

      I think to save money you should skip dinner. Breakfast food is generally cheaper. Big breakfast at 10-11am. Late lunch at 4-5pm and a light dinner if hungry at night is more economical

    My prescriptions cost so much too. Maybe I should just stop taking my antidepressants and see how it rides out. .

    Aside from being tone deaf, I think this is bad advice. Common breakfast foods are fairly cheap comparatively and I’m pretty sure most nutritionists recommend eating something for breakfast to kickstart your metabolism. If I were skipping/reducing a meal, it would be lunch.

      Gluconeogenesis does that well enough.

      Plenty of people don’t eat breakfast. I’ll be nauseous for the rest of the day if I have anything before noon.

          It’s basically your liver (and kidneys) pushing glucose into your bloodstream when you wake up. It’s common across nearly all animals. It seems like if your body gets used to not having food first thing, the morning response becomes stronger, and your body takes longer to shift to glucolysis. Which might explain the nausea part if you aren’t used to eating first thing.

          I stopped eating breakfast when I left home, so I’m pretty locked in to 2 or even 1 meal a day since I can’t be arsed to waste time eating at lunchtime most days anyway. I make up for it with coffee.

        I’m the other way around, due to some of the medication I take. Gotta eat with it or I’ll have terrible stomach pains all morning.

        I only eat one real meal a day and supplement with light snacks and plenty of fluids. As long as that one meal is something of substance and not say, a ramen packet or something like that, I feel pretty good. There are people that do one meal a day with no other food intake at all, too, but that’s a bit low for me.

      That can’t be sanitary. I mean, who knows what kind of drugs these people take, what kinds of places they have been. People get worried about eating animals that have been given antibiotics, so I can’t imagine that billionaire-meat will get approved for human consumption any time soon. We should probably just euthanize the poor souls and recycle the remains… \s

    Maybe the WSJ has a point; we could save a lot of money if we stopped buying breakfast and just ate the WSJ staff instead

      It’s people like you that make me look like an asshole. Every morning I wake up at 3am to squeeze orange juice, make sausage gravy, biscuits, waffles, 5 omelettes, 40 pancakes, 6lbs of bacon, hash browns, buttered toast, and right after my son comes down the stairs, puts his ball cap on, grabs a single piece of bacon, heads out the door in a rush, I chase him down with a PB&J he inevitably always forgets. But it’s not like I want to waste 40lbe of food per day. Some days I just want my son to sit down and eat the 40lbs of food I prepared. He may think I’m overbearing but I’m really overcaring.

      Off topic but I don’t think breakfast is any more or less important than a meal any other time of the day. Most days I only eat one big meal around dinnertime and maybe have a few bites of some snack throughout the day. I’ve been like that for years now it started from doing 12 hour construction shifts where I’d just work all day with a coffee and maybe an apple or something then eat a big meal once I was home. I don’t do construction anymore but the way I eat stuck with me. It’s probably worth pointing out that I’m very fit and a healthy bodyweight (5’10 152lbs) and I don’t suffer any negative effects from living like this. I’d say I’m healthier than 90% of the people I know.
