Why Young Men Fear Marriage

Why Young Men Fear Marriage

Commented Oct 30, 2011 at 12:45:54 in Divorce

“Why marry?
tax laws aside, it's not a fear but a healthy precaution against a legal system that is very easy for women to abuse.

Marriage sounds like running a risk that someone will get half of everything you own for no good reason.

Plus, tv shows and movies have all shown marriage to be extremely unpleasant for me (married with children, unhappily ever after) so why do it?”

“oh Huffpo, you do yourself a disservice by running stories with such blatantly attention-seeking headlines.

If the article read "Poor kids more likely to commit crime" it'd have been a *no duh* moment but you chose to focus on a quality thereof - namely drinking soda vs a healthier yet more expensive beverage - which makes it seem that either you're knowingly misleading people or you've no concept of causation being different from correlation.

I expect better from you; we're the enlightened educated side of the political spectrum, remember?”

“so your institution has 1000 computers. Let's say they're starting from scratch. At 1000 bucks each, that comes out to 1 million dollars.
I can probably assemble and setup software on an equivalent or better computer in about 2 hours, at a cost of around $200 given we're looking at mid-range.
Now, let's say you have to temporarily hire people to assemble those computers, and the pay is around 15$ an hour (reasonable for tech support which will be able to do this, especially since you work in a high school or college where computer skills are no doubt abundant)
2 hours per, 2000 hours 30,000$ plus 200,000$ for everything
230,000$ versus one million. If you wanted high end and pay tech guys well get 300$ and 20$/hr = 340,000$ and that's a really high estimate seeing as how windows installation (or mac os for that matter) is really a process you just start and let sit while you do other things like assembling more computers

You'll need tech support people to help people with login issues in a computer lab anyway, so those are already accounted for.

Nobody said you have to assemble them, but it makes fiscal sense and you can hire people who know what they're doing.”

“that's genuinely surprising.
You'd think with something as important as public image the candidates would want to have all the control.”

alaskan on Aug 9, 2011 at 01:08:31

“Well, most savvy political handlers never let their candidate pose for editorial photos. They refuse access and offer the portraits they've taken themselves. If the editors insist on taking their own photos, the handlers sometimes agree but under very strict rules --- like giving the photographer only ten minutes! Then, the candidate is micro-managed by their PR staff to basically freeze in one position in front of the camera, so the photographer can't "draw them out" in any way.

And boy, photographers try REALLY hard to influence expressions! Everything from loud music to comedy, to "accidentally" releasing a mouse in the studio.

I've never done that. Swear! ;)”

“I think I can best explain my stance with an analogy.
There are car guys, people who've messed around with cars since a young age, who understand how the engine works, who can tell when something is off and what it probably is just by listening to the car as it runs.
To those people, the idea of a car where the hood is welded shut, the parts are entirely proprietary and you have to take it to someone when it breaks is illogical - why pay more for the same quality?

From a young age I learned to avoid fully-built systems because they generally come with a lot of garbage, I learned that I don't need norton or mcaffee because I can remove malware myself just as well, without the constant drain on resources. The idea of a computer that limits my interaction with my property, uprgading myself when I feel like it, paying a decent price instead of hefty charges (newegg.com is my friend) seems backwards. I use a PC because I know how to build it, I know how to make it run faster, and I know how to clean it up.

To go back to the analogy, I believe that someone who can go to a junkyard to find parts for their car and then assemble it themselves will always get a better deal than someone who buys from a dealership and has to take their car to that dealership whenever something goes wrong.”

“Did you miss the part where it said that these computers are for institutional purchases? We have over 1000 computers where i work can you imagine if they were all non standard tinker toys.

As for geeky hobbies I bake bread and brew beer but unless you can get into it and are willing to devote the time I would not try to talk you into forgoing store bought bread or beer.

BTW I would love the hood of my car welded shut, hmm maybe it is 'cause i have never opened it.”

“Everything up to Adobe CS2 — haven't touched it, except for one hard drive replacement, since it was bought.
Most people want computers to work like an appliance. You unwrap it, plug it in and it works. To me many of the people who enjoy Wintel machines are like the car enthusiasts who love to tinker with their cars. My car just gets me from A to B and if I never look under the hood the happier I will be.”

“There's truth to that to be sure. I knew a couple that broke up and each swore up and down that they never wanted to be in that relationship again, then 2 weeks later they'd be missing the intimate times and would go for "one last one" together. Next thing they're back together. This happened at least 5 separate times.”
