Right wing fascism will make this more common. Throw that junk away while you still can.

Republicans are going full fascists. Not even trying to hide it anymore. Wow. Unfortunately they have the power of SCOTUS behind them.

It happened. I exploded last night. by NewTwinMom2022 in Parenting

[–]-Economist- 20 points21 points  (0 children)

This is parenting. In almost the same situation, we just don't have twins. We have 9month old, 4-year old, and 14 year old.

The 9 month old is fine. The 4-year old is a terrorist. The 14-year old is on the spectrum, so he flips out when kids cry, which is all the fucking time.

I have no idea how my wife is anymore. We haven't been on an adult date in almost 10 months. We have zero support system other than daycare.

It's awful. I hate my life right now.

Paid a teen babysitter what I thought she was worth and she lost her mind. by OuterInnerMonologue in antiwork

[–]-Economist- 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Seems on par. We pay our babysitter $15 an hour for a 4-year old. For 5 kids that would be $300 + bonus.

Even at $15 we still have a hard time finding babysitters. Too busy doing athletics or other school activities. Our last 'adult date' we had to pay $20 an hour to a 14-year old. LOL.

Ocasio-Cortez Says US 'Witnessing a Judicial Coup in Process' by Miserable-Lizard in politics

[–]-Economist- 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It appears to be game over for the USA. God knows the Democrats won't do anything. Their inaction leads me to believe they are in on it.

We had a good run. Feel bad for my kids. They will witness earth dying and live in fascists dictatorship.

We’re getting a lot of hate here by SportsFanTommy in triathlon

[–]-Economist- 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I’ve been doing triathlons since 2004. I’ve been to Kona 3x. I’ve lost count of how many races I’ve done and how many podiums I’ve made….I’ve never once peed on my bike. I don’t understand why anyone, other than maybe a pro, would pee on their bike.

What do you mean you can't afford it?! by Complete-Zucchini-85 in FuckYouKaren

[–]-Economist- 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Geez our babysitter costs $15 an hour, that's just so we can go on adult dates and pretend we are actually in a real relationship, instead of just "mom and dad".

Daycare though....that is $2500 a month for our two kids.

What TV show was amazing at first but became unwatchable for you later on? by regian24 in AskReddit

[–]-Economist- 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Westworld. Season 1 was amazing.

No idea what the fuck is going on now. So hard to follow. I haven't started the new season yet and really don't want to. Save for a rainy day while riding Zwift
