    So I'm assuming something like "The Subtle Art of Giving a F*ck" would be too long and not suitable for this?

    Oh, thought it was your first time! Is it really that good? I just couldn't get into Witcher 3 but I also can't risk getting super into it because I don't have that self-control. But with Rainbow 6, I'll play like 2-3 times a month and feel "content."

    Dang that's so cheap. I remember buying just the base for $20 2 years ago and never ended up having the time to play it. Have you started it yet?

    1. ~personal or ~adult (not the best name) or ~life or ~finances (this is the most specific it can get before it becomes a subgroup imo) or something similar. Basically, a post where you can discuss being an adult and how to get around in life.
    2. /r/personalfinance, /r/investing, /r/careerguidance, etc.
    3. I think it'll have to be rolled up into ~misc or until a similar group like ~economics comes around, but it really doesn't fit into any of the current groups.

    How much did Fallout 4 GOTY cost? Was it actually $59.99 like it says right now?

    I agree, but I don't think we should use people who do this for a living as the ideal example. From what I understood from the article, he's still aiming it at the average person who isn't making their livelihood off of maxes. But because these "average" people see these beasts with high maxes, they make that their goal and then end up developing stability issues, multiple injuries, and a very narrow focus of athleticism.

    One of the reasons this post resonates with me is because I see so many of my friends just lift low reps, high weights, which is perfectly fine, but they never do cardio or play any sports. There is nothing inherently wrong with what they're doing, but when it comes to real life situations we're placed in, these guys have no utility. We go on hikes, they get gassed easy. We want to swim, gassed easily. Basketball for fun? Out of the question. They can't touch their toes and they complain about their neck due to lack of mobility. This isn't exactly what the article said, but it is what I extrapolated from it and personal experience.
