@gcr, of course the article was ridiculous, you'll never get two perfectly matched people, what the article was trying to say is that all other things being equal, someone who views cars as a transport tool will end up spending less money than someone who views cars as toys. The numbers are part of the usual I never knew it would cost that much shock factor. Most of my friends/colleagues are quite well off professionals, and I know someone who owns/has owned each one listed.
The reality is that if you are in a well paying job make sure you make some saving commitments, another reality is that maybe consider having your kids early in your marriage so that from age 45 onwards you have no schooling or varsity fees to deal with and your kids are out of the house.
That's a really interesting thought, and not one I've heard before. My dad had his last child well in his 50s and partly due to that is still needing to work when most people his age are winding down. I know there are serious health benefits to having children younger, so this is something people should consider.

On a cold winter morning, seat warmers are a necessity, not a luxury.
Absolutely, or maybe you should leave Alaska during the winter.  ;)

was the sale of the shares not a forced sale by the lenders who held his shares as security?
Yes, those were shares lodged with banks as surety for financing the business. As a result voting pool drops to below 30% - breaks voting pool control over Steinhoff.

I see he unloaded 98.5 million shares of steinhoff yesterday. Yes 98.5 MILLION. Amazingly I believe that's around only 10% of his holdings.

What is the diffs between Forex broker platforms and Cripto coin brokers like Luno? Nix.
Most are inhouse casino businesses where you trade between the members within the brokerage.
Many people are now complaining that they cannot get their money out and this exactly what has been happening with FX brokers. They last for 2 years then duck with your money.
