The wages of sin hit the middle-aged

There is an old phrase for this.
“The wages of sin”
as in, you pay for your lifestyle.

Nobody else lives with the full consequences.

This isn’t It.

Eight in every 10 people aged 40 to 60 in England are overweight, drink too much or get too little exercise, the government body warns.

The shock will be when their healthcare becomes expensive because people like them pushed up the prices (parts of the NHS here now charge) and finally, their kids won’t look after them because they were raised on Independence Dogma and Don’t Trust Anyone Over 30 and not Honour thy parents, which is outdated. One of those abusive care homes pour vous, I see in your future.

Health officials say the “sandwich generation” of people caring for children and ageing parents do not take enough time to look after themselves.

Boomer karma is a-coming.
You fucked the system. The system is fucked and fucking you.
And the cycle is complete.

You wanted to change society. No safety net for you. That’s a conservative thing to do.

You wanted it young? You get it while old too.
This is why you don’t meddle with the OS code for society. It used to work, now it will fail in the strangest ways and most unexpected (if you’re dumb) places.

No country for conservative values. It’s like the childless people I keep pointing out who expect a pension. From whose work, exactly? Why should somebody else’s children, somebody else’s investment of time and a LOT of money, work cuck for you? Is that not slavery?

That’s if the state slave pension isn’t totally abolished, that looks increasingly likely as new recruits with massive aged families claim and leech.

Common Filth is right, they don’t have a lifestyle. They have a deathstyle.
What you sow, you shall reap.
You don’t sow anything? Guess you starve.

There’s a 22-stone guy who supposedly didn’t know he was fat.

glaring glare stare really oh come on you can't be serious no fucks given go away dorian gray

These people also wouldn’t see the beauty of epigenetics e.g. you snub the chub BEFORE you reproduce, or it carries through in the germline. How do the gluttons NOT see it causes their obesity?

It’s a biological fact. It’s a direct causal connection.

He says: “You can become very complacent when you are in your forties. You kind of think you’ve done everything and so you can relax and eat pizzas and Chinese in the week.”

No, that’s the lifestyle of a student. A teenager. When they can’t cook.

After cutting down on alcohol, Ms Henderson said she had more time for things, was less stressed, coped with work better and, that family life was more pleasant.

Shouldn’t they have done this two decades ago?

It’s like the stupidity of a deathbed conversion. The damage is still done and present, it doesn’t count. There is no sin eater in a calorie counter.

The wages of sin, no QE to pass the buck.

The modern painful transition to adulthood and encouraged immaturity

In the Valley, it’s pride. They’re all terrified of saying I don’t know. It’s like an extension of school full of people-pleasers, it’s conditioned into them. It’s sad to see old men pretending to be teenagers. Their model of maturity (where they’re going) is defined by going backwards, it’s bizarre. Kids don’t know shit, it’s a pseudo-religious secular argument about purity from worldly corruption when children are only pushed in media because of pester power (how annoying they are) and having spare pocket money to burn (from their parents). They aren’t more creative, they’re more reckless (and very rarely it pays off, an availability heuristic), most studies for magnum opus peak at middle age because one is both learned and experienced.

Such a result is not surprising, given what we know about neurology. In adolescence, our brains are quite pliable and moldable, and are easily shaped by the experiences and tasks we pursue and work at every day. These experiences create well-worn pathways in our brains. In our mid-twenties, our brains start to “set,” and “excess” neural matter is pruned away; that which we’ve been regularly using stays, while that which we haven’t exercised is reduced. Thereafter, while our brains remain “plastic” and changeable, creating new habits becomes more difficult to do. All of which is to say, that if we train our brains in our youth in how to tackle adult tasks – how to plan, delay gratification, stick with a challenging task, work in a disciplined manner, etc. – performing these tasks in our thirties, forties, and beyond is much easier. If, on the other hand, our brains “set” before we’ve ever challenged them, picking up adult habits becomes a much more difficult endeavor.

Children need a gradual increase of REAL responsibilities. Millennials are especially bad for this. Only athletes and the elderly need the gym, a form of empty exercise, it does nothing for the calories burned. The rest of us should get enough exercise actually accomplishing something – doing chores, running errands, building something, volunteering, ANY-THING.

Real meaning manual labour type of work. It helps boost immune function, bone density and muscle strength.

So, the second reason growing up is so hard to do, is that rather than gradually being initiated into the world of adults, we’re often expected to take on mature responsibilities all at once. Without a couple decades of training, this can feel like a shock to the system, which leaves you drowning in a world for which you haven’t been prepared.

It’s deliberate encouragement of dependence.

Learned helplessness.
