I started with a criminal record for petty narcotics pos and a 'computer tresspassing' record guaranteeing me unemployment almost everywhere except manual labor. I was also living in a SRO in the worst area you can ever imagine, had no money, huge debt and couldn't even finish university so washed out in the second year due to poverty.


Any job will do. Some shitty manual labor position is great because then you also get some activity in so you aren't a fat bastard.

Easy jobs to get are landscaping (usually pays under the table cash), construction clean up, warehouse, or whatever you can find on your local Craigslist 'gigs' section. Alternatively there's the dreaded nightshift tech support. Look around for these on CL, or move to somewhere in your country where the jobs are. In Canada this means terribad mining and oilfiend work but it pays like $40/hr and there's nothing else to do up there, perfect for studying.

For me, I got a job at the post office and delivered mail, which meant I got off early and had lot's of time for school. Also consider institutions that will pay you to learn a trade, such as telephone companies and whatever else.

So you wanna be like the yoga moms and eat organic bananas but don't got the $$$??????

Just go to the stupid self check-out and ring your gotdang Organic Bananas as regular Bananas (or whatever the fuck else produce you want)~~~~~~~~~~

I've never been confronted about this by staff, but if you are you can just say it was a mistake or w/e.

I'm sure a lot of you have already thought to do this/don't care about organics. Regular bananas make my mouth itch and organic ones don't. I thought I was just mildly allergic to bananas until I had an organic one. Looked into it and apparently the herbicides and pesticides actually move into the flesh of the fruit. shit's cray.

Placebo effect.

There is lots of organic food that isn't even actually "organic". It's just a marketing ploy to trick goyim.

Heck Organic food isn't even sustainable. Have fun with insects ruining all your crops and fake placebo "superior" vegetables for an inflated price.

It's the same as the Gluten-free mania people are experiencing. Only 1% of the population cannot eat gluten, those with celiac disease. Everyone else is just trying to do whats popular or they're a middle aged mom trying to think of kookie ways to lose weight instead of just eating a caloric deficit.

As an organic farmer who uses no fertilizers or pesticides and has no problems with controlling pests, I ask you to do your homework on sustainable organic agriculture before you regurgitate information you might have read on an article somewhere on the internet. Any farmer, organic or not, who farms unsustainably is mistaken and is using wrong methods. It is possible to maintain a high-yield farm sustainably using non-conventional methods. Read more. Try growing a sustainable garden. Learn something.

Tiny Homes Modern Mom 14/10/19(Sun)23:28 No. 2413 ID: c32dd5 [Reply]

Does anyone have experience or interest in building tiny homes? They are usually 100-300 sq/ft. made of found and recycled materials cheaply. Some run on solar and wind power. I work a part-time job and I'm thinking of starting a tiny house project. I can buy some materials and there's plenty of scrap around me to use. I have some carpentry skills and general know-how. Anyone interested in the tiny, minimal, cheap life?

Modern Mom 14/10/20(Mon)01:50 No. 2414 ID: b9bdc1

Tiny homes are pretty neat. I don't think I can be any help to you because I barely know anything but I would definitely like to try to make a tiny home after I finish college. I can't imagine buying a full size house, that seems way too big for me and a huge waste. Apartments seem too restrictive in terms of selecting alternative power sources/building anything.

From the knowledge I have gathered from having no experience at all with power sources: I would go with solar because wind seems erratic. Also I've seen a lot more people using solar energy so I would assume that it is more readily available/more effective/something like that.

The way I am looking at it, over the year or so of planning and building I would be checking craigslist, local junk yards, whatever you are around for scrap. I can't imagine not finding anything you can use for over a year.

How big do you plan on making your house and do you plan on living with anyone though? I am wondering how much bigger a house should be to accommodate more people.

Also, are there any general straightforward guides to this sort of thing?

Modern Mom 14/10/20(Mon)20:45 No. 2417 ID: c32dd5

I'm planning on saving up money to buy some solar panels and a friend at work (who is a whiz kid at engineering) has developed a small wind turbine generator meant to run 12v appliances and store extra energy for when it's not windy. I have no know-how for this but he is going to build one with me and walk me through the steps. Of course I will document it so I can rebuild more later. He says the only skill you need to have is some basic welding knowledge for some parts. Other than that, anyone could potentially assemble it.

I have this unique opportunity to work on a shipping container that's already halfway tricked out into a house, and if all goes well I can start building the dream tiny house with my significant other within the next year. We plan on making a cabin on wheels kind of like the one in the picture.

As for now I'm reading books on basic home design, making a home energy efficient, and the basics of solar power, water treatment, and all of that kind of stuff. The site where we would be assembling it already has a ton of useful scrap.

I think this may work out in the long run.

I went dumpster diving today. so i thought id drop a few hints for you guys

1)Invest in a headlamp, you want both hands when digging through trash
2)sometimes your gonna have to get in the dumpster to look for stuff
3)Apartment complexes, post garage sale houses, closing businesses, goodwills and thrift stores are great places to look. sometimes check out stores you like. Gamestop is supposed to destroy what it throws out, but some dont listen to that
4)Don't make a fucking mess. Leave it cleaner than you left it. If you leave shit strewn about, you can guarantee it'll be locked when you return
5)check your states/city's laws on diving. some places like California outright ban it because of recycling money or something
6)dont fuck with with locked dumpsters. just dont. its a crime.
7)If its some place with security(ie a shopping center, mall, etc) find a security officer and ask him/her if you can do it. More often then not, if your not suspicious, they'll be cool about it
8)dont look shady, wearing all black looks suspicious, wear jeans, boots, and a long sleeve shirt in normal colors. If you look respectable, odds are youll be granted persmission, or left alone.
9)If someone asks you to leave, fucking leave. For the most part you dont have to say anything. Dont give them your name. if they get your license, big deal. you can always say you werent driving your car that night if they report you.
10)when entering a dumpster, dont "dive". There may be broken glass or similar sharp jagged spikes at the bottom. enter with caution, slowly.

a guy I know makes all his money selling shit from diving. granted he is a handyman. Google your city + dumpster diving to see if theres any nice forums

I have eaten better dumpster diving than at any other time in my life, including when I was spending £50 a week on food.

Bread and pastry spoil quick, there's usually a whole dumpster of this if store is large and has a bakery section.

Stuff will be bagged up and separate from other trash, usually different bins.
Case out a store by visiting once in morning, once in evening, you will spot a pattern by week two, usually Monday morning there is a trash pickup and it's a mountain of marked-down reduced food they didn't shift at the weekend.

Also, this


a gas/utility key , best money I ever spent, get from most pound shops/dollar stores and they open some triangular dumpster locks (in the UK they are the big orange 'Biffa' bins)

Never had anyone call the cops, etc

Modern Mom 14/10/16(Thu)09:31 No. 2387 ID: 58984d

store I work at locks the dumpster because people dig in them for the hundreds of receipts we throw out every day customers dont take. People look for anything paid for in cash and bring it to another store to return shit from off the shelves. Very easy to do in big stores.

I envy you, I'm not poor enough to eat from dumpsters, but an extra 50 bucks a week is tempting.

Modern Mom 14/10/17(Fri)19:00 No. 2396 ID: eb89c4

I live in Denmark and have been eating out of a dumpster for 3 weeks now with a friend of mine who's a paid PhD student.

You probably think that dumpsters are full of shit and whatnot, but actually the food is usually packaged and oftentimes expensive. For example, last time I went I found a shitload of salmon and some expensive cheese. All clean, packaging undamaged, etc.

Not having to shop or pay for food is awesome, not to mention it's exciting to see what you're gonna find next.

Let's talk about ways to make cash online, it can really help out and once you get efficient with it and have a good group then you're golden.

I won't lie, I'd like to find a person or two from this board to be in a new group. You wouldn't believe how fast and simple things get when you get everyone working together well and can make the money on nearly autopilot, depending on what method you are using. Also tips and resources are always good.

It's exactly the same as any other endeavor, you will get back what you put into it. The more you upsell yourself, make connections with clients, branch out etc, the more work you get. When you do whatever work you decide to try for, whether it's a skill you have or one you are looking to build, doing research beforehand, having excellent customer service and thinking outside the box is going to get you far, talent alone is good, but you need more to excel at freelancing because you are your own boss and the only motivation is going to come from yourself.

I've been doing okay at it, I've branched out from writing only erotica to non erotic books and I recently got a story I wrote green-lit to be made into a game. I would rate myself as an intermediate level freelancer so far, if anyone has any questions about it then I'd be happy to try to answer them.

Produce content, build contacts with other bloggers and submit myself to directories, while learning CEO and modifying the blog accordingly?

Welp, I've been playing music on the street for cash for about a year now, The first spot I was playing got stolen I guess you could say, by some jerk off's who just showed up with a fucking band.

The past month I was playing with in a city.

A cop stopped me today and told me that the state I live in doesn't allow people to "solicit". I guess having a tip jar is the such.

I'm stuck dunno what to do.

I'm trying to scope out places but every where else in my town is basically city owned. Or company owned.

Are there any companies that just let people play a flopping guitar outside there store? Why are people so stingy toward's the idea.

I've heard people say that "People that do that make 400 dollar's a day" Witch is total fucking bs.

I dunno. Just no fucking clue what to do.

They take cash and valuables from out-of-staters, minorities, or other people they decide they can probably fuck over with minimal consequences. The line-of-battle police and military are generally poorly raised (jewish media) and universally poorly trained (lol low-class meatshield). Basically they can narrowly function as an adult in the capacity that society absolutely requires them to, most of the time, but if they have to make a single decision and act on their own, it is a certainty that they will catastrophically fuck everything completely apart from a moral state-of-mind.

So we a cop who has only written speeding tickets and settled domestic trouble so far, grew up making specific judgements about spics, nigs, goth-kids, etc., has an ugly whore wife that cheats on him, and in general is extremely confused by the lands outside of his home state, and is utterly tripped out by anything that's not from US, mexico, or canada. Actually this could be an accurate description of no less than 95% of sworn officers of the law.

So this guy
This guy
Is essentially
and could be ANYWHERE in the cycle of rage caused by the above any time you see him.

keep that in mind when dealing with the police

Modern Mom 14/10/16(Thu)09:11 No. 2385 ID: 58984d

A police officer on a bicycle pulled me over when I was a kid.

He gave me and my brothers vouchers for free ice cream because we were wearing our safety helmets while out biking.

Police have one goal and that's to enforce the law. Make them regret that goal. Find out what the fine for soliciting is.

I imagine there are first time and second time offense fines... don't carry an ID. Pretend to be homeless or extremely poor, talk in a confused and meandering manner. An endless manner. Also theres a reason most bums just use a guitar case, its implied but not illegal. Know the law better than the cops do, if you dispiute them on the spot and shake their confidence (and seem intelligent about it) you could avoid it. Remember that you can go to court over any fine and contest it, do these kinds of cases hold up in court? A cop wont fuck you if they know charges will just be dropped.

Modern Mom 14/10/16(Thu)09:15 No. 2386 ID: 58984d

also how badass are the cops in your town, you really dont want to be arrested and have your instrument impounded. If they threaten that then get the fuck out..

Good luck breaking minor laws no one really cares about.
