I'm curious what other people think about "investing in yourself" How much of your disposable income (%) do you invest in the following? For this purpose, disposable means whats left after BASIC (not luxury) housing, food, medicine, transportation, etc. Consider anything over $5000 USD / mo total for the above to be luxury. __Conventional Investments (retirement fund, etc) __Security __Legal Fund __Efficiency / money savers __Eduction / skills development __Luxury, the good life. I've learned of a few "secret" things coming that make it so there is a reasonable chance that humanity will be extinct within the next 50 years. I think the actual number is eight, but I only know about three. All very plausible, plus another 3-4 that I'm guessing are in that eight. The military(s) and some of the crime syndicates have their own secret "continuity" / "disaster recovery" programs that you and I are not invited to. Honestly, you wouldn't want to participate anyway. I'd rather hang than go into some secret underground military base controlled by some psycho-general. Is anyone investing in group-bunkers. Survival and "thriving" are much more likely if you have 150 to 2000 people. Avoiding people with severe personality problems is important. Is anyone investing in a private space exploration / colony program? I know for sure this one is important. If you can only do one you need to do this one. There is a lot of "suppressed" technology out there. Most of it is suppressed for good reason. A lot of it is bad. Really really bad. In fact there is one anti-gravity technology that "works" but has effectively destroyed our planet - we just don't know it yet.
