    Adorable Jazz.

    Give yourself £5 or ½ gig, you're worth it.

    Beautiful. I personally wouldn't post my daughter's o n this forum though as there are too many creeps.

    I don't see why people are bothered about pensions. When I come to retire the age will be 75. Wtf am I going to do at 75? I will spend the money whilst I have it and not put it away for a day that may never come.

    Tbh, as someone who works in financial services, that's not a ridiculous statement. But remember that whilst you may work longer, you'll be living longer too and pensions are still an effective tax dodge albeit with pretty off putting caveats.

    Yup, that's a kid alright.

    As for retirement, it's getting to the point where only the rich will retire anyway. For the rest of us, we'd better hope that we have jobs that'll still let our crumbly old bones in the building.

    Oh well. I will live to the fullest now and not worry about a time I'm likely not to get to anyway.

    Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.

    Live as if you were to die tomorrow.

    “The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.”

    “It's being here now that's important. There's no past and there's no future. Time is a very misleading thing. All there is ever, is the now. We can gain experience from the past, but we can't relive it; and we can hope for the future, but we don't know if there is one.”

    etc etc

    I don't have a private pension. I hardly drink (around 8 units a month), I don't smoke, I don't drive. I currently support a family on my single wage. There's simply no money left at the end of each month for me to fund a private pension. The only luxury I have is the internet. When my fiance returns to work in a few years our joint income will enable us to fund private pensions. I just feel genuine symapthy for those on minimum wage who will never be able to fund a pension.
    It's got to be proportional and sensible. I think most people can now put money into NEST. 1%, which is better than nothing at all. Having said that, this system won't work while minimum wage is fairly static and wages not growing, which seems to be a Tory ideal. More people will be in your situation (or worse) and the problem will remain.

    yeah yeah yeah.

    Only you won't because dentistry, the NHS, the police, the fire service and every other form of tax-payer funded support will keep you very much alive for years and when you're old and vulnerable you'll want looking after and demand your entitlements.

    Don't worry about it though! Not your problem.

    Fuck me, I'm turning into a morose git. Maybe I should live as if I were to die tomorrow too, rather than grumble on the Internet.

    I retired 7 years ago, after a stint at the company. Well I do have a part time business organising parties for my old Eton chums but that's low profit stuff more to keep the mind active, you know.

    At that point we're all going to be in tournaments fighting to the death for the handful of non AI jobs left.

    When i reach retirement age I wonder where all these people called Bert or Sid or Roy are going to come from because I bumped into any of the fuckers yet.
  • Deleted user 11 January 2013 00:10:15
    For most this seems to be a term of immortality. If you don't have kids your genes won't survive. Which is kind of true

    And kind of not. When you're dead your dead. Just cause some cunts walking around who looks a bit like you doesn't detract from the worms eating your mouldering brain.

    This goes for any sort of pride in our children at the basic level.

    I started putting away a few years ago. The deal is far too good not to.
    I put 3% away a month and my employer adds another 10% on top.
    All being well it should see me in for a fat wedge when I'm old and wrinkly and a very healthy income per month so I can go die on a beach somewhere. Screw ending my days here!

    You dare to strike Scurrcules!?

    I started a business... so far it's not working out great in terms of my retirement. lol
  • Deleted user 11 January 2013 00:15:25
    But dude your own business! You have the freedom to work 12 hours a day :)

    Then you get to lump it on your kids who have no interest or idea

    It was too hard living as if you'll die tomorrow. Hard to make real plans, plus I was always running out of milk. And loo roll.

    I have a reasonable expectation of being in fairly good nick at 75, certainly don't see that as past it. Would be happy to do voluntary work once released from the rat race. Not planning on thinking about slowing down before 90, really.

    I'll sort a private pension out when we're closer to clearing the mortgage.

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.
