just wondering why folks wanted FI?

I do hope to someday be FI, whether or not I make the RE part is another matter entirely.

All I really am hoping for is a comfortable (not extravegant) retirement, without having to deal with the constant fear of perhaps outliving my money.

So, if I never manage the whole FIRE thing, by at least thinking about it, and taking some steps toward it, hopefully I can at least do the 'don't spend my last years constantly worried wheter or not I'll outlive my money' thing.
