They wear dresses we can't afford and live in houses we can only dream of.
I know too many people who bought fuel-efficient cars and routinely: We rented a house very near my work several years ago.
We tried to buy a house in that neighborhood. Part of it was price. Part of it was anticipated repairs. Part of it was the increased cost of real estate taxes and property insurance.
But the real deal breaker for us was education. We had 4 kids at home at that time. Even the real estate agents who were trying to sell us homes in that area acknowledged that the nearby public schools were below par and in some opinions unsafe.
My wife who is herself a public school teacher pored over the statistics and we really could not come to any conclusion other than to move to a suburban area with far superior schools.

Riding a bike is not an insane physical trial where you come out dripping with sweat and smelling like a hog. Reply MMM October 6, I just checked the weather history for that day — the high was 84 degrees F!
Showering at work is good for reducing your own hot water bills, but not necessary for most people who bike to work. Reply Joe Average November 17, Its hot, hilly and humid here TN in the summer.
One alternative that I explored but did not spent any money on yet was a powered bicycle that has the effect of flattening the hills out.

Logic & Fallacies Constructing a Logical Argument () mathew [ Español / Spanish] Introduction. There is a lot of debate on the net. Unfortunately, much of it is of very low quality.
Even if you are a natural at reading people there is a limit you won't be able to beat, which is that you will only recognise in others what you already are. With this I mean that unless you are a very complex and therefore contradictory character.
