Pixy responds:

Yep, he sure did. Unfortunately, given the undisciplined way
he goes through the cash he will also probably go broke and
have to return to the workforce at age 55 or so.


The pessimists have been saying he'll be broke in two years, and Pixy is giving him 27 years. I think it's in the middle.

This sure sounds like someone who doesn't want to learn, so I think he'll be successful in avoiding learning. My guess is that he'll be able to stay extravagent for two years, then squeak by while still unemployed for five years or so. For him to make it to double his current age would take a miracle though.
