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.

>the AOSP kernel is fucking ridiculously huge and full of bugs

You mean Linux? Because in all this time reading source code, I've never seen those "bugs" you are claiming AOSP is full of, can you explain better what you mean?

Congratulations you poor bastards have earned your own board. Don't fuck it up. Any relevant rules will be created/added to this post when the time comes, but for the meantime try to keep it SFW.

Jesus Christ I'm useless; I should have specified that this board is for poor niggers to share money saving tips/vouchers and whatever.

The poorest may now in certain ways enjoy what the richest a century ago could not have commanded, but this does not show improvement of condition so long as the ability to obtain the necessaries of life is not increased. The beggar in a great city may enjoy many things from which the backwoods farmer is debarred, but that does not prove the condition of the city beggar better than that of the independent farmer.

But they already do, why should people who work hard have to pay for Tyrone and Jamal who like to smoke weed and hang out with their baby mama?

Why should people who never bothered to obtain a skillset be provided for? Are we not then just rewarding laziness?

Modern Mom 14/09/27(Sat)02:13 No. 2353 ID: 2d2aff

If the middle class made more money, they would then pay taxes... It doesn't matter who pays taxes... A stronger middle class creates a larger and consumerist economy, a stronger one. Most super rich hold onto their money where it sits.. Forever. They are useless and will continue to horde wealth indefinitely. It will only get worse and creates less opportunity for all of us.

Why reward heirs and the super-rich who have more money than they ever can spend?
They're living in a bubble where they can buy success.

Lesser of two evils, in that scenario. The access to money to keep somebody afloat could be the one thing steering a person down on their luck away from crime. Apart from a chance, and not a certainty, of getting miserable work for peanuts due to a shit economy. Hipsters are about the only people that enjoy being poor, and they seem to have phased back into whatever secret place they came from so suddenly.
Also, it doesn't help the system by tossing the baby out with the bathwater; in the event that somebody loses their job, and hits a spiral of poverty instead of staying afloat long enough to find another one. No government, to my knowledge, has found a perfect system of somehow perfectly distributing money to those who "really deserve" it.

Generally it's worth contributing the small fraction of paid tax to this, to spare people the alternative. If a country as shitty and socially nihilistic as America does it, there's obviously a reason.

If you're the educated (BSC, MSC) and you have to work below your qualifications, post there

Msc, biologist, call center monkey. This job has turned me into alcoholic. No perpsectives for change either, job market is awful for STEM graduates, even PhD's.

Although I'm almost 30, I still live with my parents.

Modern Mom 15/01/27(Tue)00:57 No. 2525 ID: fead98

BSc (Business Administration) and PhD (History of Protestant Theology), I deliver pizza and work at a local publisher as an "electronic prepress technical specialist", which essentially means that I know how to use Emacs and edit errors in LaTeX files. For the most part, I fix pdf's that the editing dept or customer fucked up in Adobe while they were writing it and I get the pdf to look right by converting it into TeX, fixing the appropriate portions, and moving it into postscript.

I have insane amounts of downtime, so I am working on a ThD dissertation for Charles University of Prague, in hopes of finally getting a teaching position somewhere in the world. There are few openings available for historical theology professors who take some of the political and philosophical stands that I have, making things more complicated. Hopefully having a few more letters behind my name will garner more attention when I apply for another position.

Modern Mom 15/01/28(Wed)01:36 No. 2526 ID: 5dd9ba

I consider starting phd too, but rather as an hobby. No positions available and you have to be fucking genius. So I don't care anymore.

I'll work part time, I still live with parents and my expenses are minimal. I've enrolled into art school (part time), it consumes my time and allows me to fight my depression.

Because I know guys withiout HS dipoma who have now their own homes, cars, businesses. Those guys used to pick on me at school and I was told to push hard into education.
A pretty lie after those years.

Modern Mom 15/01/30(Fri)21:06 No. 2528 ID: d3a903

The job market isn't awful for STEM graduates. Depends completely what you have studied. I and my friends from a technical university have all found jobs matching our studies directly out of university but I guess it's a bit different for engineers compared to biologists.

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.

I hear there's good money to be found in copper. How can it obtained and more importantly, how can you get money for it.
I was thinking of just getting all the free televisions and shit from CL and scavenging them for metals, is this viable?

Modern Mom 15/01/21(Wed)12:17 No. 2522 ID: ab9f96

Most people just steal it. Powerlines or communication lines usually a lot of copper.

Old factories. Most places that have copper are well protected. Scrapyards make a lot of money from it too but if you get caught trying to steal it they'll break your legs.

is fiverr worth bothering with? I can't seem to land a job (even lying in resume) so I figured I could put my photoshop skills to use.

has anybody made any money off there?

Modern Mom 13/11/25(Mon)04:45 No. 1756 ID: 3e2241

If you can't get a job on fiverr then you need to either go get a crappy 9-5 and let it eat your soul up until you're ready to actually put forth real, serious effort to land clients, NOT lie on your resume and treat freelancing like what it is: an actual job, not something you can half ass...or no ass in your case. Yes it's full of indians and chinese that will undercut stuff, but if you keep watching for new jobs and have good grammar and a passable portfolio you're guaranteed to eventually find something. Also your PS skills probably aren't as good as you think, try slumming it on mturk or maybe doing paid surveys for a while and then level up to real freelancing. The people who make money on freelancing make money because they take it seriously, if you don't you'll just waste your time.

I can tell you personally that a friend made 2000 dollars from it in like 2 months. I only managed to make 32 dollars in like 3 days. I left it then. Never set your prices too low because clients will still pay you

LIFE HACK! Modern Mom 14/11/19(Wed)01:32 No. 2456 ID: f26904 [Reply]

File 141635712971.jpg - (87.37KB , 487x649 , earring organizer.jpg )

How it works: If you own a lot of earrings, they can easily get lost or disorganized. Pinterest and other websites have a lot of ideas to help, from hanging them on cheese graters or sports rackets to replacing glass in a picture frame with wire mesh.

How it actually worked: I didn't have a cheese grater or tennis racket to spare, nor the time to measure and tack mesh over a picture frame. So I started looking around the house for other candidates. I had a mesh magazine holder that held glossies from 2011. Bingo.

Life changing?: Yes. Not only did I recycle the magazines, but I also upcycled the office supply into something more functional. I put the pairs of earrings I had on one side, and single earrings on the other side, in case I find their matches. I ended up filling the inside with my bangle bracelets so I got double storage with one item.
