Not everyone can be a doctor or lawyer or sports star, but there a 'career' jobs vs 'paycheque jobs'. Crappy jobs are crappy (even if high paid) and will make you miserable and perhaps die early of a heart attack (if the job is stressful).
2) Personal Finance: Except if buying a house or car, and emergencies, run a financial surplus every single month. Avoid the credit trap. Debt will make you miserable.
3) Student Life: Get your sleep. Minimize alcohol and drugs. Study. And choose courses that will result in a job, as seen in my first point. Never be afraid to ask for help.
I am speaking from experience here: I wish I had found a career I wanted earlier, not while in my 40's. Took me to my 40's to figure out my finances. I did OK in school but never took it seriously as I should have. Now I have to go back to school. In my 40's. But at least I have a job I like, decent pay, decent finances, so no complaints. It just would have been better at 25 years old.

This is just a pathetic thing to say.

When I was younger (and a little more naive), i thought I had 'discovered' this very system more or less. Just play something simple like Roulette and bet red/black, putting down $20 at time - put it away if you win, keep doubling down if you lose. Decided to do some quick computer simulation and couldn't get comfortable with the risk/reward ratio.

It's not worth it for the risk of ruin. Over larger samples there usually comes a run where several hands in a row are lost. The amount of money you need to put up compared to reward isn't big enough or it would be common. Obviously if you have 1m to work with risk is lower but pay off is also lower and there is better things to do with that million then try win a couple hundred dollars per session while risking the whole amount.ram77 wrote: ↑Jan 11th, 2019 3:02 pmWhen I was younger (and a little more naive), i thought I had 'discovered' this very system more or less.

They are Registered nurses.

I'm guessing cops or firefighters. Those are the two biggest groups pulling in those sort of salaries with DB pensions.
