Default Being $500,000 in debt vs $650,000 in debt happiness not much different

Therefore, the incremental $150,000 of debt is not a big toll on relative happiness

Do you agree this justifies spending $150,000 loan no plans to pay it back if you plan to be stuck anyhow?

Definitely go for it. You have to spend money to make money.

Hey L30, could I borrow like 250 grand from you? Seems like it would have a big impact on my happiness, and not a big impact on yours.

I also can agree that if one commits a crime so bad in a society that the penalty is death...a crime such as rescuing a poor child from a ghetto in Poland in 1942, then the worst thinkable crime one can possibly commit renders a sentence equal to this,

Therefore if you already rescued a child, you will not face incremental consequence for anything you do against any law.

Also, if the penalty for not believing is eternal damnation, then not believing you can do any other action with any other consequence with no incremental change to you.

Relative freedom to do as you please

I'd prefer the $500,000 debt with my kneecaps intact thanks.

It's a moot point because you would not have ended up $500K in debt in the first place, since the chain of events that would have gotten you there would not bring you happiness. So you don't have to worry about it.

Who gets stuck holding the bag? A big bank that won't even notice writing off your debt, or your parents?
