My state is holding a vaccination lottery- anyone vaccinated for covid is entered in a lottery to win one of five cash prizes- (4) $250k and (1) $1 million. What would you do with $250k?

Bit boring but I’d buy a house in cash; for that amount I could buy a two bedroom house outright and then not have to pay mortgage or rent ever again.
I am phoning the mortgage advisor tomorrow to ask how much I can borrow so sorry that I’ve become a boring old man overnight! ;)

Would you still need me? Would you still feed me when I'm 64 ?

Released 1 June 1967 ,
When I get older, losing my hair
Many years from now,
Will you still be sending me a valentine,
birthday greetings, bottle of wine?
If I'd been out till quarter to three,
Would you lock the door?
Will you still need me, will you still feed me,
When I'm sixty four? Ooh
You'll be older too.
Ah, and if you say the word,
I could stay with you.
I could be handy mending a fuse
When your lights have gone.
I could be handy mending a fuse
When your lights have gone.
You can knit a sweater by the fireside,
Sunday mornings, go for a ride.
Doing the garden, digging the weeds,
Who could ask for more?
Will you still need me, will you still feed me,
When I'm sixty four?
Ev'ry summer we can rent a cottage
In the Isle of Wight if it's not too dear.
We shall scrimp and save.
Grandchildren on your knee;
Vera, Chuck and Dave.
Send me a postcard, drop me a line,
stating point of view.
Indicate precisely what you mean to say
yours sincerely, wasting away.
Give me your answer, fill in a form,
Mine forevermore.
Will you still need me, will you still feed me,
When I'm sixty four? Ho! ( Are you getting up there ) 🤫

If you had the authority or the legitimate power to control the global market and the economy today. How would you feel and react?

For starters I would feel honoured to control the world. I mean, when you can control the global market you're basically in control of everything. I would introduce Universal Basic Income so that everyone can get $1k a month at least. Screw how much it costs in the budget because our lives is a human right, not an experiment. We have every right to have money coming into our lives every single month for living on this beautiful planet.
I would eliminate taxes for anyone making under $50k a year. I don't think taxes need to be paid by people who are struggling enough as it is. I feel the top 1% can fill in that void. Just to clarify, I don't dislike rich people, but I also believe if you're making 7, 8, 9 figures a year, you can easily pay your fair share in taxes. That should be part of the job. If I were wealthy, I'd have no problems paying taxes. If you're truly wealthy, you would have no issues giving some of it up. I feel those who are hoarding on money still operate from a scarcity mindset. They're afraid it'll all disappear, or that it's the most amount of money they'll ever have in their lives.
To add onto that, I would force big corporations to donate 10% of their net income to one of 3 things -- taxes, eradication of world poverty, or helping underdeveloped nations. If they don't comply (meaning they don't donate upon request at the end of the fiscal year), then it's 30% - meaning they're forced to donate 10% of their net income for each of the 3 things - no questions asked. I would force the money to come out of their pockets. No need for trials or lawsuits - just pure force. It would be like a magic trick.
Small businesses can open up for free of charge for a 6 month trial period. The buildings would be paid for via tax money. After 6 months they will be given a review. If they've made a profit in 2 consecutive quarters, then they'll operate under normal rules. No financial aid. If they haven't made a profit, they will be given 6 additional months + some financial aid without exceptions. They need to be profitable, so I would go the extra mile to help them out. At some point they have to turn a profit. I wouldn't force them to shut down if they lost money. That's up to them.
Credit card debt, student loan debt, bankruptcies, foreclosures would cease to exist. So, no need to worry about missing a credit card payment or your rent payment. That's all taken care of.
On top of that, I would probably not give a single f*ck and force all telecommunications companies to go out of business. How? By making internet, cable, and mobile services free of charge. Screw all of them. I want everyone to have access to technology, and having them raise prices is only making me wish they could all go out of business. So I'd force them to shut down whether they like it or not.
I'm also not trained in economics, so no clue how much of this is even possible, but then again, I have all the control, so that means anything goes :p

Has the rent and real estate doubled in your are in the last few years? Has your pay?

nicestguyhere
The housing market has gone crazy. Everything is completely overvalued because the interest rates are so low. But that will change very quickly and we will see a massive housing bubble soon.
Wages never keep pace with housing prices. Inflation is coming, actually it’s already here, and the cost of everything will skyrocket - except wages / personal income of course.

Has the rent and real estate doubled in your are in the last few years? Has your pay?

nicestguyhere
Yes. Halifax's prices have gone up considerably over the years. It's safe to say we're the next Vancouver and Toronto with regards to housing bubbles. Nova Scotia is surrounded by water, and multiple homes can give you an amazing view that cannot be duplicated in the bigger cities. I don't know if this is one of the reasons why our housing market is booming, but I like to think it is. We're unique with regards to landscape and views.
Only issue is that we're not at the same size as Vancouver or Toronto. We're small. Wages are also not as high over here. This makes it attractive for buyers to overbid and outprice the locals. I don't believe these are foreign buyers, like the ones Vancouver had - which caused a big kerfuffle, but regardless, they're still bidding over the asking price.
If prices keep going up, it'll create a bigger problem with people looking for homes. Add onto our 1% vacancy rate, and that makes matters more complicated. People who want a home can't get one, and if they do, they're going out of their budget to get one. If they can't afford the budget, they'll sell the home, and that could get outbid. Rinse and repeat.
Now, one positive to a bubble is the money. If you're the seller, or you work in real estate, this is exactly what you want. You want this bubble because it'll make you more money. Your home you bought for $300k can easily be sold for $400k - maybe more. You make a nice commission off of it, and you move onto the next home. If you're the seller, you can feel good knowing you made a profit on a home that shouldn't have made you a profit. The more people buy homes at higher prices, the better it is for you as a seller/realtor. However, as I mentioned, it comes at a cost of people who genuinely want to buy a home, but can't because they don't have enough money.
We've heard for years that the bubble will burst, but the bubble's just spreading across the country. Even Newfoundland's real estate market is hot right now. So, the bubble is more than just a bubble in my opinion. It's the new norm.
On that note, I find real estate fascinating.

How well do you handle scary movies, video games etc.? Maybe you like the feeling of being scared? What's the one scariest piece of content you've experienced? 👻😱

TobbeAsks’s Profile Photoᛏᛟᛒᛒᚨ
I do quite like horror films when I'm in the mood for them, though I find most of the a rent scary just gory or 'jumpscares' so it's really awesome when one actually IS scary 😁
There was a particular section in hellblade where you can't see anything and you kinda have to 'feel' your way through and you can hear sounds all around you of the monsters that will kill you if you stray from the path and it's suuuuper tense and freaky I LOVED IT!

I’d like some input on some strange feelings I’ve been having. I met my bf last year after moving home due to covid. We’re a match and he treats me well. He asked me to move in. His mum insists on cooking and cleaning. He takes full advantage of this. I want to see him without his mother.

I agree that on one level this question is about values, but on another level this question is really about relationships that jump to a stage where two people don’t have all the information that they might want or need in order to move to that stage. We don’t know if they have different values yet, because as you rightly points out, you haven’t seen him in that environment. You know, he might be far better than you think he’d be once he’s in that environment.
We’ve all had that experience of, you know, you’re sort of, there’s an apathy, perhaps a little bit of ignorance sometimes that comes from a family situation where you take things for granted, and then you’re quite a different person when you move out on your own. You know, it brings out a different side to you. He might be worse than you think he’s gonna be, he might be an entitled, coddled, little nightmare. Little Lord Fauntleroy when you get him on his own 😂 so, we don’t know that yet. That’s the point.
So obviously there’s been a lot of people who met during covid and then kind of ended up moving in together just because it was either that or don’t see each other. So they were thrown into these situations where it was an unnatural rate of progress for a relationship. To some extent you might say, this is fast, right? You met last year. You’ve only experienced living at home with his parents and you don’t know what he’ll be like outside of that. In a normal situation, you would have your own place and he would have his and you’d see how it evolved from there. You see how that person is when they’re in your space. Do they pick up after themselves? Do they help you make the bed in the morning? Are they a good teammate in your environment and what do they expect when they’re in theirs? And from there you can figure out where living together feels right.
You’re worried it won’t progress right now. One way to look at that is to say okay you get your own place and I’ll get mine or at least one of us gets our own place and see how that plays out. That’s more organic. Now maybe behind this is a kind of financial situation, plus maybe some hurt feelings if they don’t decide the next step is to move in together. But there might be some financial reasons why you’re talking about moving in together from this place that you’re in right now. If you’re gonna move at a pace that’s not organic, then you should at least have some pressure relieving conversations. So, don’t sign a two year lease. Maybe not even one. Sign a six month lease and be like, “y’know what why don’t we just try it? no ones holding anyone to anything right now. It’s not that we don’t go back to living separately after this. Why don’t we just give it a try for a few months and see how we get on?” Like, my preference if finance wasn’t a problem, I’d say to them go rent an Airbnb for a month. Like, don’t even go straight into a lease. Just go live somewhere for 30 days together.

What has been the lowest point of your life?

HusnainShahHashmi’s Profile PhotoHUSNAIN
When you see someone depressed or just sad, just try to figure out the reason & be kind towards them, not entitle them as psychos! 🙏
I've been holding on thifor so long & i believe it's now the high time to share what I've been through & how can you prevent other women from traumas like mine!
My parents called it quits & filed for a divorce in 2014 after a long highly toxic marriage on a very bitter note & that took a toll on me definately but without me registering that grief in my head. My life was haywire at that time, i couldn't study well at all, all my friends turned into bullies so you can say that my little world had turned into a nightmare. And then one day on my way to home from my school, a man out of nowhere groped me & sexually harassed me. That was my first trauma. I remember i came back home, wept all day & stayed up all night. My mother is a lawyer so she's mostly busy, i couldn't communicate with mother immediately nor i wanted to shatter her. But when i told her & women in my family about what had happened to me, as expected they hushed me & warned me not to tell anyone about it as it would make me look a little less pious or i don't know whatever. And that shattered my core! As time passed i became scared of people & developed trust issues. I failed my 6th standard & then i decided to quit school because i was scared of being bullied & harassed again. Men & others in my house, in my family & friends circle couldn't understand why I wasn't behaving normally. Many called me a drama queen & a psycho.. I was legit 12!!! Anyways following that year my mother & i evacuated to another place & lived seperately for 2 years approx & there i suffered for PSTD & sleeping paralysis. I isolated myself for 7 months straight, imagine i didn't even realize that eye sight's gotten weak! And while i was in that phase i got harassed again by a 70 year old broker who wanted to give his apartment on rent. I blamed my mother for not protecting me & not putting him in jail.. but then there came izzat & all that bullshit, no one would marry you & that people don't spare single mothers & kids, it's impossible for us to survive in this society other way, we are vulnerable blah blah blah again! No wonder how many kids he would've harrased or molested. Oh do you wanna know why harrasers, molesters & rapists are never traumatized like we victims? Because they are never punished. Feeling comfortable with men to me is an uphill battle because i know women can't protect me & men would never know or gets to know!
P.s. For god sake pls don't assume that I'm looking for anyone's attention or sympathy. I'm just urging people to be less ignorant & cruel and be more protective, supportive, responsible & concerned towards people around them. And be humane when they're told that their mother, sister, daughter, beau is harrased or raped once.
Don't be an inhumane rat or blame them. Punish such evil men & petrify them to their core in public & not hide away!

Since morals change over time, what are some things we do now as a society that will be deemed unacceptable 100 years from now?

amnaalaeddin’s Profile PhotoAnn
1. Privacy will be a privilege, not a right.
2. As technology advances, expectations of typical human interactions will change with it.
3. To live in a city but have spare empty rooms in your house will be considered borderline sinful.
4. People will be expected to be far more obedient to their governments.
5. It will be far more acceptable to have your rights stripped from you for being a dissident of the system.
6. “Green” will be the new religion.
7. The idea of “national sovereignty” will eventually become non existent as the UN slowly move their initiatives into place all around the world, it will happen so slowly that people won’t see it until it’s all around them!
8. We’ve seen a lot of things get censored in terms of words, coming up will be the censorship of words concerning emotions! - yes, people will be taught from a very young age an entirely different set of limited/approved emotions, as limiting emotions limits thoughts, and to “trigger” emotions that produce a certain stimuli in the brain that keeps you from thinking outwardly in a more open minded manner.
9. The Catholic church will look to make mergers with other religions making a “one world religion”.
10. Ownership will one day be a thing of the past, soon it will be commonplace to rent and subscribe to everything.
11. It will be commonplace to do tests and have your job assigned to you according to “demand and skillset”.
12. Centralised control will be the governing structure of everything, operating partially as a technocracy, but freedom as we know it will be a thing of the past including freedom to travel.
13. EVERYONE will be completely complacent and happy with the above whether they like it or not.
People who live ”off the grid” will live a very survivalist existence but will be the last ones with freedom.
Oh anyway where was I? 😂

Just butting in! OP, you could also consider "bed spacing" where you share a room with a fellow renter! Cos I feel, sum of those who want 2 move out here may have this view that u have 2 have an apt/condo all 2 yourself ryt away. Yeah, it cn happen. But sometimes we have 2 smart small & it's OK. :)

Yes this is definitely an option! People think you have to own or rent a condo right away. Let me tell you kids a story. When I was a child my oldest sister Myrza decided that she was going to move out. I think she just graduated college, so she was 18 or 19. She didn't have a lot of cash so she got a bed space in Makati. It definitely wasn't fancy but it was a start. It also established her independence from my parents. The best part of all was that I, then 9 or 10 year old girl, saw that this was what strong young women did when they became adults. Soon enough I moved out for college at 15 and never moved back. It can be done if you really want it.

no właśnie po co się bawią w trzynaste emerytury mogli od razu zlikwidować podatek od emerytur i rent

Po to żeby emeryci sami sobie sprezentowali marną 13 emeryturę. To jest w ogóle jakaś paranoja, polscy emeryci to bohaterowie, sam się zastanawiam jak można być takim głupim i wyżyć za 1250 złotych, to jest mistrzostwo świata, przy takich cenach, to jest wyczyn nie lada, godny podziwu. Ja 1500 miesięcznie wydaję na absynt, nie mówiąc o żarciu, opłatach, podatkach itp. przy tej całej dobroci PiSu emeryci i tak wyjdą na minus, bo śmieci podrożały do tego stopnia że są droższe niż ta 13 emerytura, więc prawie będą mieć by zapłacić za wywóz śmieci, kanalizację i w podatkach i tak zapłacą więcej, więc rząd zarobi na nich jeszcze ..👌🥃

Is it halal to buy a house in the US with the intention to sell it in 10 years or so in an attempt to not waste money on rent?

Definitely
Rent is not a waste of money. It's the more affordable and wise decision for the majority of people.
As a renter you don't pay property taxes, you don't pay any maintenance to appliances or the building, and you are free to move to another house or another city whenever your family or work situation changes.
On top of that, within 10 years, you're definitely, without a doubt, going to actually pay less in rent than in payments for a house. Because the first ten years have most of the bank interest front loaded on it. So if your house is $450k, and it was mortgaged for $600,000 over 20 years, you're likely to own only about 25% after ten years, not 50%.
So during ten years, you are paying about 3k monthly in monthly mortgage payments whereas you'd pay 2.25k in rent for the exact same house as a renter. Plus with mortgage you have annual taxes, building insurance and maintenance for any appliance or repairs. Then, when the 10 years are over, you are still in about $350,000 debt!
Buying a home would be a better option financially only if you buy with more than 20% downpayment, and get an excellent term over a shorter period of time, to minimize the interest you'll pay on it. Do not buy a house with a 5% downpayment even if your credit allows it, to because you'll end up paying a lot more unnecessary money on mortgage insurance.

(1/4) Hi tita! I’m 23 and I just moved to Canada last December for studies and living in my ninongs house (free). Everything here makes me feel so uneasy and he has a record of being controlling and was very abusive. Right now, ang daming restrictions sa akin.

(2/4) There’s this guy I met on Tinder May last year and he knows about this situation. He thinks I should just move in with him instead. I really want to. This guy and I have made things official this month and I’ve just recently started telling my family about him. Is it too early? (3/4) I also have not landed a job yet but I am not required to pay rent too. What should I do in this situation? I’m afraid of what my parents would think, and I don’t know how to tell them. But I really want to do it. (4/4) For peace of mind narin sana since I’ve been having anxiety attacks since I’ve started to notice my ninong's actions, but I haven’t been very open about what I’ve been feeling in this house to my parents too. (my parents are in the PH pala) Am I making this complicated by overthinking?
ANSWER: DO NOT MOVE IN with anyone until you have a job and money saved up. You always need to be ready to be thrown out on the street, especially in a foreign country where you can't rely on anyone. Your parents seem to care enough about you to let you stay in your ninong's house. Please let them know what the situation is there. Maybe they instructed him to be strict with you and something can be worked out. Or maybe your parents can find you an alternative housing situation. Unfortunately since you're not working and you don't have savings, you are dependent on your ninong and your parents for survival. Moving in with someone you don't know well may seem like an easy fix, but unless you have a back up plan in case that doesn't work out, you get pregnant, or the worst possible situation, don't do it before you communicate your situation to your parents. Good luck.

Because the comment wasn't about me. You know nothing about me. We were talking about you and your bf being stuck and not able to mature and become proper adults. Why is that?

Well why don't I get to know you then? Seems only fair for me to comment on your life since you've been commenting on mine. How are we stuck? We're doing up our van, living together, pay our rent and ALL bills on time, have money leftover for a social life too. We both work fulltime. So please enlighten me what out of that doesn't make us proper adults? I think we're doing pretty well compared to most people.

💪 We’d have to imagine I was fit and well and Covid was no longer an issue.
🇲🇽 Then I’d probably go to Mexico for a year and rent or buy a large house with sun balconies, in the town where I have a number of friends.
🌞 I would spend my time sitting in the sun, drinking Corona or Modelo, eating chimichanga, catching up with friends and playing with chihuahuas. And maybe visiting the odd Aztec temple or two.
🥋 And retraining in ninjitsu while I was there, I follow a Mexican club online.

JoeeeMason’s Profile PhotoJoe Edward Mason
That’s close to 2 million AUD. So probably a house. My rent is going up in January and it’s my opinion that the house isn’t worth what they’re asking. It’s a nice house and all but it’s shoddily built or rather if I had paid to have it built there’s no way I would have accepted it as is.
