Mortgages have been so cheap for years that the smarter financial play is interest only, 80% LTV, and let the millions ride in SPY. For someone that claims to be so good at math you're making financially stupid moves.

Seriously, who would pay off their seven figure house? 🤔
I don’t have a 7 figure house… I don’t even know what to do with it like I said. It’s just been paid off for a long time. It’s one of the only houses on the street that hasn’t been renovated since the early 2000’s. I have a aol dial up modem still in the wall. If there’s a word for “overly taking advantage of something” then that would be me and the house situation right now. I’ve over stayed my welcome here and then some. Most people move a lot for example … I’m the opposite. If I’m adapting to the new day and age we live in nowadays… it’s at a snails pace. I have no reason to lie or act like I’m a know it all here… I don’t have that much interest in things outside of my job.

I mean like I do .. but I’m not the best at stuff like that and I just know what I’m good at and what I’m not.

This is way more entertaining that the five-year old sitting on my head…

Are you even aware that you present yourself as a very confused and paranoid individual? I can't figure out if it's just a bid for attention or you really believe this bizarre rambling act you're putting on.

It sure does get expensive to live such a “normal” lifestyle. It’s not a weird flex to not have bills or expenses. It’s not even a flex. I just feel attacked by people that aren’t credible

whatever floats your boat tho. Having no expenses allows you to save big boy money. I know nobody knows it because again your so proud of spending money on woke things. All I pay is property tax towards my house. I don’t know what to do with my house. I bring up the gas prices being high but I shouldn’t because I don’t pay for gas. I try my best to not have these woke bad negative things that are going on right now in the world affect me. It could be anything… the stock market,retail value,gas prices…When something like inflation hits all of us hard it barley affects me because I don’t have expenses. It’s a really good feeling to pay cash for everything and be worry free that the things that aren’t even close to being in your control aren’t negatively effecting you in any way not just about money.

Aren’t you the guy that lied about what I do for a living and said you’ve worked with 100’s of people like me? I’m sure what you just said is also not true

Maybe we’re being too hard on the kid. Who here didn’t think they had life figure out in their late twenties?

It’s not a bad thing to not come off as somebody who thinks they have it all figured out on the internet … imagine what any female would say to these guys attacking me on a date or something when they start acting like they’re the next Donald trump

You can’t afford setback on $130k/year…
My house cleaner can confirm
If I go take 500$ out of the atm and then go party with it and wake up with 0 id have to do that like 5 times in 7 days to have a setback
Okay, this legitimately made me chortle.

Let's see, who do I believe, @Numbernine who is old enough that he was alive for the very first union formation, or the guy bragging about being able to take out $500 from the ATM to party?
