This has GOT to be a MMM Reader
« on: May 27, 2016, 01:16:43 PM »
It reads exactly like pretty much all the recommendations MMM gives, to include biking to work...  Its a great article in that it's very positive towards early retirement, giving a roadmap, and even some of the (few) comments to date seem supportive (~50% are still haters though).

some of the (few) comments to date seem supportive (~50% are still haters though).

I'm seeing 90% hate and jealousy in the comments.

"Wait till they have kids, things will be different for them"
"the numbers don't add up"
"1 million is $20'000 a year for 50 years, they can't live off that" <-- wow
"they are not really retired, they are making money from clickbait articles like this one"
"why would you live like a bum just to amass money? Live a little"

... the usual crowd, it seems :)
