Had to review my employers pension fund regulations and I'm still always baffled that their main (only?) reason to exist is the "Don't pay taxes now, pay them in 30 years!" claim.
Why? The tax rate won't be lower then. They might be right that my income will be lower so I have to pay a lower rate, but that's not by choice. I'm pretty sure I'll need (and want) the same amount of income when I'm old. It's a sad fact that I won't get that, but if it would be equal, there'd be no reason for them to exist.

Life-hack of the day: If your hardware store does not sell proper garden sieves and the chicken wire fence is to expensive to build you own, just go for children's bicycle baskets. They fit nicely into/onto a big bucket and work fine to sieve out those big stones.
Much better size than those construction-site throw-through sieves or even a rolling sieve.
And beats the children's sand toy sieve in durability.

Bought and built up some new furniture lately. Although Swedish, this is not from the big four-letter store as our furniture usually is.
And boy, am I spoiled by the quality that I usually get. Although the actual wood content may es well be non-existent on the yellow-blue store's offerings, but at least there paper origami is highly functional and they have an impeccable quality control and by now a nearly perfect take on design for ease of buildin…

I'm looking for a good rationale/explainer that effectively addresses the problem of convincing a Gmail or Apple Mail user that they should drop the convenient, free service they're currently with and pay a monthly fee to a different company like LavaBit or ProtonMail for a more limited version of the same thing.
Haven't found anything when I looked. Who can point me to one?
