temsike asks,

intercst, why don't you spend more? Like double what you're spending now?

You're not married. You have no kids. I know you're not getting older; you're getting better; but what are you saving it for?

Right now, my lifestyle isn't being limited by the amount of money I spend. I'd feel foolish if I spent twice as much on a First Class airline ticket when every passenger arrives at the destination at the same time.

Who knows if that will change in the future. I just noticed this article on a 102-year-old man who bought a new 426 HP Chevy Camaro.
