    No it was how much money buys happiness

    All of the moneys! To a point!

    it just irritates me because it inevitably rubs off on me and I don't like that.

    A study about exactly that said $88,000/yr. But with the caveat that it's based on cost of living, of course.

    The conclusion was that more money makes people more happy, right up until all bills are paid on time, and a little can be put into savings every paycheque. After that, it doesn't matter how much more people make, they aren't any happier.

    EDIT: Which says to me it's less about making more, and more about being free of financial stress and anxiety.

    why is it so upsetting to me that Valve is actually, like, getting rid of some porny games.

    I certainly agree that several games don't belong on steam. I don't know if they got hit with it, though? But, i guess, I'm scared of VNs having to migrate away from Steam? Like, I feel that some non-violent stories about human relationship are a good thing. IDK, i'm starting to warm up to those and they're possibly going away. :(

    I also just found out that awesome local psoas workshop teacher and awesome upstate ny yoga teacher are both doing retreats in central america within two weeks of each other in Feb of next year. First a week in Costa Rica and then a week in a little town called Todos Santos that's north of Cabo. Going to do my damnedest to make both.

    Cafe Sushi is fucking incredible and I wish I hadn't discovered it only after I left Boston!

    Hm and Sportello is cute but the real reason to be there is the artisinal cocktail bar Drink with no menus which is right underneath it

    If you're making over 75k a year, then you're getting the most happiness out of money.

    https://content.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,2019628,00.html
    People say money doesn't buy happiness. Except, according to a new study from Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School, it sort of does — up to about $75,000 a year. The lower a person's annual income falls below that benchmark, the unhappier he or she feels. But no matter how much more than $75,000 people make, they don't report any greater degree of happiness.

    I make about half this, so I'm presumably 50% miserable.

    Its basically "this is why we can't have nice things" if they let some porny games show up, then you get the darker shittier ones also showing up and its hard to say "well these ones are different porny games". Plus valve has terrible quality control with steam games, and know they do, so again as a stop valve so rape simulator 2018 doesn't show up, "Tender loving fucking" must also be banned.

    I had this conversation with a group of people where I made probably less than the median and definitely much less than the average, and people were generally pleased with their compensation.

    ...and I have to say, it made me sort of displeased with my compensation, and made me think about going into finance to earn some real fuck you money (this one friend keeps telling me I'd like it, and then gave some numbers--those numbers being 250K first year and 425K second year, WHAT THE FUCK)

    Man I don't know. I am actually fine with my salary now and should not get jealous of other people.

    I do not want Steam to turn into the App Store. Both Apple and Google Play have so much shit that I have to try out 50 different titles to find one that is at all interesting. Even the highest rated stuff is junk.
