Nose hair trimmers are life savers. You will rarely have a better ROI on an investment than nose hair trimmers. Oh you laugh, but instead of yanking out your nose hairs while you drive on the highway, just go and drop the $14 on a set of nose hair trimmers! Your nose will thank you.
From my latest article at LinkedIn: "I personally could not care less about the plight of these HR ditzes. They proved nothing more than a huge impediment to the labor force, the advancement of the economy, and the advancement of millions of people's careers. They were predominantly spoiled rotten brats from the suburbs, given undeserved and uncalled for power which they abused and went power-tripping with. And while I certainly know and appreciate some REAL HR prof... Captain Capitalism

A more recent rabbit hole of political thought I've been going down has been how the majority of leftists waste their lives. This is caused by the primary driving force in their life - the fear of work, labor, and toil. And though nobody likes labor, toil, or work, avoiding it is simply avoiding a necessary evil of life. It is also a way to guarantee you'll never achieve anything of value, worth, or greatness in life as genuine accomplishment requires labor and toil.
This then presents a leftist a very important existential question - if you're not going ... Captain Capitalism

Though later today I'll be coming out with The Clarey Podcast, pour yourself a nice cup of coffee, charge up your cell phone, and listen to this excellent story about a leftist who wants to launch a grand opening party for his theater. The story isn't great because of the leftist's delusional expectations, but the poor protagonist who has to deal with him. It's truly shocking just how little leftists ever deal with money, let alone using their own to pay for things that they are so far removed from the true cost of things.
Allow me to take what has historically been a complicated economic concept, and make it simple - inflation.
Say you travel into outer space and come across a whole new, but inhabitable world. "Clarey World." And in "Clarey World" the only thing of any value produced is Rumpleminze. There are no cars, paper, houses, shoes, video games, OR ANYTHING. The ONLY thing that is produced on this utopian planet is Rumpleminze. Period.
Was on Dr. David Perrodin's podcast where we talked about conducting reconnaissance for middle aged men, growing up as kids in the 80's in Wisconsin, forging Robin Yount's signature on your glove, and a little bit about Poor Richard's Retirement and how putting humans first in your life makes your finances infinitely easier.
I got an interesting comment in the comments section today:
You are going to have to find a new gig dude. Your signature topic, worthless degress, is going mainstream. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-06-15/four-reasons-why-college-degrees-are-becoming-useless Once that happens the camp of continuing the crusade disappears.
So what is plan B?
Great question young, aspiring economist! And the Ole Captain will explain to you what his Plan B is.
Because while more and more people are starting to recognize the utter worthlessness of some college degrees, you misunderstand the market for them. For worthless college degrees ... Captain Capitalism
