What to do with an $1000 a month

2021.09.26 11:44 PloniAlmoni1 What to do with an $1000 a month

If you had an extra $1K a month what would you do with it?
After finishing off paying HECS, plus a fairly biggish pay rise, I find myself with 1000 extra a month post-taxes.
I don't have any debt except for a mortgage. I have not been maxing out voluntary super because I was focused on saving for a new home, which I bought 9 months ago. I have a basic amount for emergency savings (although I want to continue to save a little more as I wiped out my savings when I bought my place). I can live within my means in my current salary including supporting indulgent purchases for my home and so see this money as 'extra'. My super is not great because I was studying for a LONG time.
Given the low interest rates on my mortgage, should I split the amount between paying down the loan and contributing to super, ignore my loan and invest the money instead, with some going to super, or do something else? I don't really have the stomach or time (I work long hours as it is) for high risk or complicated investing but there is surely something I could do better with it than just let it sit in a no interest bank account.

2021.09.26 11:44 Celestial_Archer Something strange about this matchmaking

Basically after the rank season, as usual I decided to play rank with my duo to climb to mythic again. But after our second win in epic 2, we got a rigged loss in our third. As you know Grandmaster can only play in Epic if an epic invites them but no one invited them. My friend and I did not invite any grandmasters, and we got three grandmaster players who were trolling in our match. One even banned Lesley. The enemy team had only epics no grandmasters. We lost hard. My duo who was Mathilda and I who was Vale tried but we accomplished nothing. The matchmaking has to be rigged in some cases. This is upsetting because I thought Moonton fixed their matchmaking. And how on Earth did three grandmaster even appear...

2021.09.26 11:44 minsarker [S] [USA-NY] Sony a6300 + Rokinon 14mm f2.8 + 6 Batteries (600$ SHIPPED)

Hey everyone! Looking to sell a nice bundle here for a sony a6300 with a manual focus rokinon 14mm f2.8 wide angle lens all paired with 6 sony branded original batteries. Unfortunately no boxes or papers available for any of them as I bought them second and original owner no longer had them. I am selling because I just got an a7rIV and looking to stick to full frame only.
Everything works exactly as it should. The camera is in great condition with minimal scuffs. Screen is clean with only some minor scratches. The lens works as it should - the front element has some small scratches that do not affect image quality (pricing has been adjusted to reflect this). Shutter count is only 6217 and for those of you that know; thats nothing for a sony shutter! Lots of life left.
I'd be willing to split it up and sell separate items but wont sell camera alone until the lens is gone first.
Bundle Together: 600$
Camera + 1 Battery: 425$
Lens Alone: 150$
Batteries: 20$ a piece
All listed prices include free CONUS shipping and are listed as net to me after fees (paypal F&F or venmo or cover fee if doing G&S). Items located in NYC and local pickup is possible.

2021.09.26 11:44 pepperthewhale Songs you like vocally but hate the context of

Thought this would be an interesting thread. What are some songs you thought were really good vocal wise but not so good when judging the context?
Go Your Own Way is one for me. I thought vocally it was one of Lea's best performances, but it's the fact that she's having a dig at Quinn who's right there that pisses me off.
Also I Don't Know How To Love Him. Creepy context, crushing on a guy who she knows is gay, but I thought Jenna did a really good job if we're talking about vocals alone. It still bugs me this was one of only two showtunes she got to sing on the show, given her theatrical training.

Hey all,
Looking to get back into skating and found what I think is a great deal on my local classifieds:

This is a ripper deal, right? In Australia the trucks alone are around $120. Not that big on Enjoi decks but the Baker deck I'd probably use, but the trucks, wheels and bearings alone are worth more than $150.
Guess I just wanted to confirm that I'd be dumb not to pick this up.

2021.09.26 11:44 Hagl_Odin Calling out a close friend's hypocrisy?

We've known each other for at least 15 years, so I feel that I could talk to him about it.
Like he'll get upset and spend half an hour each time we meet to talk about how some of our mutual friends do things together and don't think about including us. He'll be equally as upset if a person doesn't respond to his message or takes their time to. I feel more and more frustrated and irritated when he brings it up because, for me, it's really petty.
But, for instance, Friday I asked whether he could send me a text Saturday after he's finished lunch so that I can get ready to pick him up for this party - we planned on going to the shops beforehand. He eats lunch at random times - can be 1 pm, can be 4 pm.
I didn't get a single message from him. When I sent him a message at 5 pm (2 hours after our planned meet) asking him what happened, he replies 'I forgot' nothing more.
No apology, nothing... when I'm sure he would be complaining if it were someone else.
I've spotted this sort of hypocrisy from his part a bit more now, but I feel like if I mention it to him he'll get upset and won't take it well... Then again if I don't, it's just going to get worse

2021.09.26 11:44 acloudrift Our World according to Gurwinder, 40 knot winds

@G_S_Bhogal (twtr) posts 40 "should know" concepts
transcript follows, annotations in () or [] (which may be hidden as link)
Gurwinder @G_S_Bhogal · Sep 17 My peoples, the time has come for a MEGATHREAD. In 40 tweets I will explain another 40 concepts you should know. Strap in. Here we go:
1 Abstraction: There are scales of explanation. A human can be considered a person, mammal, collection of cells, collection of stardust. Sometimes the reason people can't see eye to eye is that they're unwittingly considering things at different levels of abstraction.
2 Scope Neglect: We evolved for the small scale of tribal life, so we can't comprehend the big numbers that recently entered human life. We can appreciate the difference between 50 and 100, but not a million and a billion. It's why we often treat geopolitics like family politics.
3 The Law of Very Large Numbers: Given a wide enough dataset, any pattern can be observed. A million to one odds happen 8 times a day in NYC (population 8 million). The world hasn't become crazier, we're just seeing more of everything.
4 Benford's Law: Numbers in natural sets of data are not uniformly distributed (e.g. 30% of numbers have 1 as their first digit). Used by the IRS and other tax agencies to determine if you've lied about your finances.
5 Brandolini's Law (aka the Bullshit Asymmetry Principle): It takes a lot more energy to refute bullshit than to produce it. Hence, the world is full of unrefuted bullshit.
6 The Toxoplasma of Rage: The ideas that spread most are not those everyone agrees with, but those that divide people most, because people see them as causes to attack or defend in order to signal their commitment to a tribe.
7 Network Effect: The more people using a network, the more useful it becomes. A phone gains utility as more people use phones because more people can be called with it. It's why Twitter & Facebook are so dominant; we're stuck on these platforms because everyone else is.
8 Paradox of Abundance: Easy availability of food led to obesity for the masses but good health for the few who used the increased choice to avoid the mass-produced junk. Equally, you can avoid intellectual diabetes by ignoring junk info like gossip & clickbait.
9 Parkinson's Law: Work expands to fill the time allotted for it. No matter the size of the task, it will often take precisely the amount of time you set aside to do it, because more time means more deliberation & procrastination.
10 Flow States: You're in flow when you're so engrossed in a task that the world vanishes and the work seems to do itself. Flow is automatic, and it makes work much easier than you imagined. All you have to do is overcome the initial hurdle of beginning a task; flow does the rest.
11 The Curse of Knowledge: The more familiar you become with an idea the worse you become at explaining it to others, because you forget what it's like to not know it, and therefore what needs to be explained to understand it. Makes it hard to write threads like this!
12 Status Quo Bias: (example:) Those who were unfazed by Covid because it had a ~1% fatality rate were suddenly concerned about vaccines when they yielded a 1 in a ~million fatality rate. People see the risks of doing something but not the risks of doing nothing. ( this statement opens a 'can of worms' annotations for which are set aside in section titled 'Worms from can' below featured text https://idioms.thefreedictionary.com/can+of+worms )
13 Semmelweis Reflex: People tend to reject evidence that doesn't fit the established worldview. Named for Ignaz Semmelweis, a surgeon who, before the discovery of germs, claimed washing hands could help prevent patient infections. He was ridiculed and locked away in a mental asylum. (alternate expression of 1 Status Quo Bias, aka conventional wisdom)
14 Planck's Principle: "Science progresses one funeral at a time."
Scientists, being human, don't easily change their views, so science advances not when scientists win or lose arguments, but when they die so that younger scientists with more refined views can take their place. (alternate expression of 12, see also academic privilege)
15 Bias Against Null Results: Studies that find something surprising are more interesting than studies that don't, so they're more likely to be published. This creates the impression the world is more surprising than it actually is. Also applies to news (publications).
16 p-hacking: "If you torture the data for long enough, it'll confess to anything." (p is a statistical variable name: https://statisticalbullshit.com/2017/07/17/p-hacking/ see also hack, slang https://duckduckgo.com/?q=hack+slang&t=lm&ia=web)
Academics get around the Bias Against Null Results by performing many statistical tests on data until a significant (interesting or desired) result is found then recording only this.

(see older term for this "cherry picking" https://duckduckgo.com/?q=cherry+picking+information&t=brave&ia=web )
p-hacking is largely why we have a...
17 Replication Crisis: A large proportion of scientific findings have been found to be impossible to replicate, with successive tests often yielding wildly different results. Too many studies are bunk to take any of them at face value. (see https://duckduckgo.com/?q=fake+research+submitted+to+publications+found+acceptable&t=brave&ia=web a specialist in exposing fake science of climate, and dogged by attempts to smear him Tony Heller
18 Luxury Beliefs: Cultural elites often adopt views that signal status for them but hurt the less fortunate. Eg. Those who claim that concern about Islamism is Islamophobic appear open-minded but in fact dismiss the (usually Muslim) victims of such extremism. h/t: @robkhenderson Thorstein Veblen’s Theory of the Leisure Class—A Status Update 2019
19 Bulverism: Instead of assessing what a debate opponent has said on its own merits, we assume they're wrong and then try to retroactively justify our assumption, usually by appealing to the person's character or motives. ( https://duckduckgo.com/?t=lm&q=Bulverism&ia=web see also https://duckduckgo.com/?t=lm&q=Bulverism&ia=web )
20 Scout Mindset: We tend to approach discourse with a "soldier mindset"; an intention to defend our own beliefs and defeat opponents'. A more useful approach is to adopt a "scout mindset"; an intention to explore and gather information. h/t: @JuliaGalef (author https://juliagalef.com/ https://duckduckgo.com/?q=scout+mindset&t=lm&ia=web)
21 Operation Mindfuck: A conspiracy theory that can protect you from conspiracy theories. The Operation is being conducted by persons unknown, and is a plot to make you believe lies. Whenever you receive information, ask yourself, is this part of Operation Mindfuck? ( https://duckduckgo.com/?t=lm&q=Operation+Mindfuck&ia=web see also https://duckduckgo.com/?t=lm&q=gaslighting&ia=web )
22 Hitchens' Razor: What can be asserted without evidence can be dismissed without evidence. If you make a claim, it's up to you to prove it, not to me to disprove it. ( https://duckduckgo.com/?q=hitchens%27+razor&t=lm&ia=web see also https://duckduckgo.com/?q=occam%27s+razor&t=lm&ia=web )
23 Decision Fatigue: The more decisions you make in a day, the worse your decisions get, so rid your life of trivial choices. Steve Jobs, Barack Obama & Mark Zuckerberg have been known to wear only 1 or 2 outfits to work so they don't have to choose each day. ( https://duckduckgo.com/?q=decision+fatigue&t=lm&ia=web see also https://duckduckgo.com/?q=fatigue+types&t=lm&ia=web )
24 Cumulative Culture: Humanity's success is due not to our individual IQs but to our culture, which stockpiles our best ideas for posterity so they compound across generations. The ideas we adopt from society are often far older than us, and far wiser. h/t: @SteveStewartWilliams (author https://duckduckgo.com/?q=Cumulative+Culture%3B+Steve+Stewart+Williams&t=lm&ia=web or just https://duckduckgo.com/?q=Cumulative+Culture&t=lm&ia=web see also https://duckduckgo.com/?t=lm&q=cultural+evolution&ia=web )
25 Chesterton's Fence: If an old law or tradition seems so irrational that you want to scrap it, then you shouldn't scrap it. The fact it's survived the ages despite seeming irrational means it must have a purpose. Before acting, understand that purpose. An argument for conservatism. ( https://duckduckgo.com/?q=chesterton%27s+fence&t=lm&ia=web see also https://duckduckgo.com/?q=on+the+fence+idiom&t=lm&ia=web )
26 The Veil of Ignorance : Create a constitution for a country as though you could wake up tomorrow in the body of any citizen, of any race, religion, or gender, and be forced to live as them in the society you've created. A central idea behind liberalism. ( https://duckduckgo.com/?q=veil+of+ignorance&t=lm&ia=web see also https://duckduckgo.com/?t=lm&q=no+such+thing+as+%27greater+good%27&ia=web and https://duckduckgo.com/?q=no+such+thing+as+universal+morality&t=lm&ia=web or https://duckduckgo.com/?q=no+universal+moral+truth&t=lm&ia=web )
27 Tragedy of the Commons: The Rapa Nui people of Easter Island felled trees for wood until there were not enough trees to provide food, causing mass starvation. Everyone acting in their own interests can create outcomes against everyone's interests. Common argument for (government) regulation. ( https://duckduckgo.com/?q=tragedy+of+the+commons&t=lm&ia=web see also https://duckduckgo.com/?q=tragedy+of+the+commons%2C+argument+for+private+property&t=lm&ia=web )
28 Purposeful Stupidity: Common argument against regulation. In 1944, the OSS (now known as the CIA) published a field manual laying out strategies to subtly sabotage a society from within. The tactics described are eerily similar to what passes for normality today. (Gurwinder's post employed a .jpg image to represent a list of advisories for mucking with a meeting. See study notes for a transcript of the image.
https://pbs.twimg.com/media/E_hCLYdWYAELeNq?format=jpg https://duckduckgo.com/?t=lm&q=Purposeful+Stupidity&ia=web )
29 Mediocracy: Democracy works not because it picks the best leaders, but because it picks the most average leaders. The purpose of democracy is not so much progress as preservation. h/t: @Mmay3r ( https://duckduckgo.com/?q=mediocracy+Mmay3r&t=lm&ia=web top ref in that search reproduces the twitter thread of Gurwinder but extends it in another 40 concepts https://nextbigwhat.com/40-concepts-that-you-will-enrich-your-knowledge/ or just https://duckduckgo.com/?q=mediocracy&t=lm&ia=definition https://duckduckgo.com/?q=democracy+is+preservation+not+progress&t=lm&ia=web if this premise was true, then democracy would be essentially conservative , which means preservation. So no, democracy is not about preservation, it's about commonality which can be distorted via media, and progressive, in the sense repetition may cause change. https://duckduckgo.com/?t=lm&q=commonality&ia=definition https://duckduckgo.com/?q=conformity%2C+human+nature&t=lm&ia=web )
30 The Messiah Effect (Gurwinder's term?): most people don't believe in ideals, but in people who believe in ideals. Hence why successful religions tend to have human prophets or messiahs, and why when a demagogue changes his beliefs, the beliefs of his followers often change accordingly. ( not original https://duckduckgo.com/?q=messiah+effect&t=lm&ia=web https://www.rt.com/op-ed/535754-biden-trump-2024-polls/ )
31 Futarchy: What if people voted not for political parties, but for metrics that society should seek to maximize (e.g. median household income, average life expectancy) and then betting markets determined the policy that would maximize the metric best? h/t: @robinhanson (author https://duckduckgo.com/?q=robin+hanson+futarchy&t=lm&ia=web https://duckduckgo.com/?q=Futarchy+&t=lm&ia=web see also https://np.reddit.com/todayplusplus/comments/eyvl2k/our_world_according_to_c%C3%A9sar_hidalgo/)
32 Network States: Due to the web, place of birth no longer determines your community. Future nations may consist not of people who were born near each other, but of online subcultures using collective bargaining to crowdsource micronations of like-minded people. h/t: @balajis (author https://duckduckgo.com/?t=lm&q=Network+States+balajis&ia=web see also phyles https://duckduckgo.com/?t=lm&q=phyles+(from+Diamond+Age%29&ia=web also https://duckduckgo.com/?t=lm&q=hive+mind&ia=web )
33 The Immortality Project: Civilization is an elaborate attempt to distract ourselves from the fact that we're all going to die. We do this by trying to become symbolic beings rather than physical ones. Hence, the endless search for meaning. ( https://duckduckgo.com/?t=lm&q=Immortality+Project&ia=web also https://duckduckgo.com/?q=human%2B&t=lm&ia=web see also )
34 Mimetic Desire: We learn much of our behavior by copying others. In societies, we often don't know what to desire, so we begin to desire what others desire. This leads to simulated pursuits and simulated conflicts over simulated desiderata. ( https://duckduckgo.com/?t=lm&q=Mimetic+Desire&ia=web see also, the contrary tradition: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=10th+commandment&t=lm&ia=web https://duckduckgo.com/?q=frankl+search+for+meaning&t=lm&ia=web )
35 Hedonic Treadmill: Once we've obtained what we desire, our happiness quickly returns to its baseline level, and we begin to desire something else. Whatever happens, good or bad, we get used to it. As such, the most fortunate of us are seldom much happier than the least. ( https://duckduckgo.com/?q=hedonic+treadmill&t=lm&ia=web https://duckduckgo.com/?q=no+happiness+without+contrast%3A+sorrow%2C+distress&t=lm&ia=web https://duckduckgo.com/?q=fortune+favors+the+bold&t=lm&ia=web )
36 Boltzmann Brain: Your brain is far simpler than the rest of the universe (which includes every other brain), so, rather than the universe emerging from the void, it's more feasible that your brain emerged from the void, and everything else is just in your head. ( https://duckduckgo.com/?t=lm&q=Boltzmann+Brain&ia=web https://duckduckgo.com/?q=we%27re+in+a+simulation+bostrom&t=lm&ia=web )
37 Simulation Hypothesis: Assuming computing power reaches the point that consciousness can be simulated en masse, the scenarios in which you are such a simulation vastly outnumber the scenarios in which you are real. Ergo, you are likely a simulation. ( https://duckduckgo.com/?q=simulation+hypothesis&t=lm&ia=web also previous link)
38 The Great Temptation: What if we haven't found aliens because civilizations create mesmerizing amusements (like simulations) before they learn interstellar travel? What if all advanced civilizations eventually lose themselves in virtual worlds, and we're next? h/t: @primalpoly (author https://duckduckgo.com/?q=primalpoly&t=lm&ia=twitter or just https://duckduckgo.com/?t=lm&q=Great+Temptation&ia=web see also https://duckduckgo.com/?q=great+filter+fermi&t=lm&ia=web )
39 Hypernovelty: Technology builds on technology, so it's advancing at an exponential rate. Progress is accelerating. The world is now changing faster than we can adapt to it, leaving us permanently maladjusted. Life is becoming a blur. h/t: @bretweinstein & @HeatherEHeying (authors, https://duckduckgo.com/?q=hyper+novelty%3B+heather+heying%2C+bret+weinstein&t=lm&ia=web )
40 The Hinge of History: We may be living at the most influential point in human history. The decisions we face - regarding AI, internet, climate change, gene editing, space travel - will likely affect humanity far into the future. What we do now could echo across the aeons. ( https://duckduckgo.com/?t=lm&q=Hinge+of+History&ia=web see also https://duckduckgo.com/?t=lm&q=4th+Turning&ia=web and https://duckduckgo.com/?q=history+has+entered+%22hockey+stick%22+exponential+era&t=lm&ia=web )
And that's your lesson for today. As usual, don't assume these concepts are all necessarily true; they were chosen not for their accuracy but because they provoke curiosity.
Thanks for reading, and may the things you learned here help you navigate the labyrinth of possibility. (end of Gurwinder tweet thread)
Worms from can
"People see the risks of doing something but not the risks of doing nothing." links on this
when you make a choice, everything else that might have happened can not happen, this is a type of risk; see what Doug Casey says about risks on our horizon "Perhaps the vaccine will actually be the real vector, killing some after a time and sterilizing the rest"
see Badiat, 'Seen and Unseen'
"vaccines yielded 1 in a ~million fatality rate" This is false, demonstrates Status Quo Bias but without any hint of sarcasm, ergo Gurwinder seems duped by status quo on "vaccines" which are actually bio-weapons disguised as medical treatments, ie.

  • Insist on doing everything through "channels." Never permit short-cuts to be taken in order to expedite decisions.
  • Make "speeches." Talk as frequently as possible and at great length. Illustrate your "points" by long anecdotes and accounts of personal experiences.
  • When possible, refer all matters to committees, for "further study and consideration." Attempt to make the committee as large as possible — never less than five.
  • Bring up irrelevant issues as frequently as possible.
  • Haggle over precise wordings of communcations, minutes, resolutions.
  • Refer back to matters decided upon at the last meeting and attempt to re-open the question of the advisability of that decision.
  • Advocate "caution." Be "reasonable" and urge your fellow-conferees to be "reasonable" and avoid haste which might result in embarrassments or difficulties later.
