Two in five not saving enough in pension for even basic retirement
  • I don't expect to reach retirement age as it will keep increasing. If I do make it that far, I expect having to work so long to get there that I will be pretty much a husk of a human.

    That isn't to say I'm not paying into one, but I probably am in the 'not adequately saving' group because I want to enjoy the time I have now as best I can.

    The future is terrifying and causes a lot of anxiety...

    Edit: also wasn't the state pension supposed to cover a basic retirement!? Fuck.

  • Catwalk for neighbor's cat
  • Please reflect on what you've written. What are you expecting to achieve by telling someone they aren't entitled to their opinions?

    No one is advocating for genocide here, so maybe redirect some of that outrage to a more appropriate place or try to be constructive in your contributions here.

  • Catwalk for neighbor's cat
  • It's very sweet of you to do something for the cat, a nice boost to my day seeing it. Sorry about the train wreck comments that your wholesome post seem to have attracted.

    Do you have any close ups of the way you joined the posts?

  • Catwalk for neighbor's cat
  • Is this a joke that missed, or..?

    Just seen your edit

    I get the indoor cat point of view, but leashing a cat is so unheard of where I am that I assumed this was a joke.

    I will NEVER understand the downvotes or negative comments

    If you aren't willing or able to understand an alternative view, maybe online discussions aren't for you? It's also a lot to do with your language choice and phrasing, you come across as very abrasive.

  • The MAGA Plan to End Free Weather Reports
  • Next up, bring back the Roman firefighter system implemented by Crassus!

    You sell us your house while it is burning or we won't put it out. Then you can buy it back for a marked up price.

    These woke ideas of getting free fire service have gone on long enough.

  • Does my plant have the plague?
  • Thanks, I'll take a look! I did check the roots recently and couldn't see any rot. It's always been in good jungle soil with airflow and drainage so I have been at a loss for what it needs.

    It is a Ctenanthe! Thanks again, I am not sure about lubbersiana, but now I can check more easily.

    Any idea what this is? Many leaves are dying on the plant, wondering if there is a way to save it. I have forgotten the name of the plant, but will update when I find it.

    Edit Ctenanthe Lubbersiana - thanks @squeezeyerbawdy

    Flowering Aglaonema?

    I have a dreamcatcher which I thought had a dying leaf or something, but it looks like this could be something like seeds!? There is a second pod which isn't open to the left in the picture.

    I don't really know what it is but I'm excited about it. My other aglaonema hasn't grown at all in 2 years!

    Anyone tuning in at all on the off weekend for F1? It's nice to see some familiar faces in the teams.

    Blue Steel Convert

    I bought a set of three carbon steel pans, and they are amazing. Is this allowed here? They are 99% iron I think.

    They are lighter than a full iron pan but you still season them in the same way.

    I have had an iron pan dedicated to meat cooking for a few years now, but I'm not sure it will get much use now.

    These are new pans, so I'll have to see how they last, but I'm very optimistic.

    Fast food should be expensive.

    I get that until recently it was considered normal and relatively cheap, but you are literally paying someone else to make food for you.

    It can't be sustainable without exploitation of workers and/or animal welfare to have that available to the majority of people on a regular basis.

    If you can only afford fast food as a luxury, to me that seems like a good thing.

    Anyone else think this was Graham Norton?

    CNN — As the National Book Awards came to a close on Wednesday, finalists for the prestigious literary prizes took the stage in New York to speak about the Israel-Hamas war, with others at the ceremony also choosing to address banned books.

    As a non USA resident, I didn't know who this was. Before I read the post that was the name I had in my head.

    Seems legit, Google knows what is best for me.

    Sorry for the poor quality / lack of screenshot, this is from my work computer which I isolate from my personal devices, so I just took a picture.

    India GP Track Approval

    I heard on the Sunday broadcast for the San Marino GP that it isn't confirmed yet if the India GP will go ahead.

    The riders still need to test the circuit and give a verdict.

    I think that's insane. Just wondering if anyone else knows any more about this?

    External Links

    I know this isn't to everyone's taste, but a lot of linked articles are posted with headlines, and no text body. I find it hard to engage with the community like this.

    I can't view motorsports articles unless I accept all the cookies and sign up - which I have no intention of doing. Same for twitter and other places.

    Can we try to include a transcript of tldr bot in some way?

    Help wanted: Is this OK?

    I was given a Montsera(?) cutting and I don't really know if this leaf is too wrinkled? It's a minefield trying to read about and understand if I have over or under watered. I just don't know what this plant actually wants.

    My usual approach is to assume I have over watered if a plant looks unhappy, but I don't know if these bounce back after a period of under watering, if I hold back on watering more now.

    Hiding posts?

    I might have missed it somewhere, but is it possible to hide posts here. I like to hide popular posts once I am done seeing or engaging with them.

    With the lower traffic here, I think this would especially help with finding new content.
