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.

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.

If you have a brain, and aren't shit, you can still be an online journalist if you know how to write.

Modern Mom 14/09/20(Sat)17:30 No. 2329 ID: 17b5c3

No, unless you mean freelancing. The traffic to your blog could come from several potential sources, most of which are discussed in earlier posts in this thread. You're not going to make a living from the hits you get from people in a group, you have to promote, do SEO on your articles and diversify, there are always different ways and being creative is the best way to hit on new methods.

That's not what I'm going for and I don't know much about it, are you an online journalist or something?

Modern Mom 14/09/20(Sat)22:24 No. 2330 ID: eb89c4

Well, freelancing doesn't sound too bad I guess. Depends on what I get though.

Anyone here know about high-capacity storage batteries?

I had this idea while I was working at a call center: I plug my phone/iPod/portable gaming device in to charge them from inconspicuous outlets at whatever desk I'm at. Everyone does this, and nobody says anything as long as you're discreet about it. So why not charge up higher-capacity battery to run (say) my computer or entertainment system?

If it were small enough to fit in something like a book bag, even if it was heavy, it would just look like a bunch of books I brought to work to keep from getting bored. The possibility of it being discovered is negligible, since everyone keeps a bunch of stuff at their desk, and the facility uses staggering amounts of electricity so there won't be a spike in energy consumption/cost.

Anyone ever done this? What's wrong with this plan? Is there something really obvious I'm overlooking?

Pic vaguely related: It's an antique battery.

Steal things from people's carts as they're loading their purchases into their car in the parking lot until you get enough to buy a decent rig.

Alternatively you can rob people jogging at night for their shoes and smartphones.

You could also get women drunk and bang them, stay over at their place and steal their things when they least expect it.

I just invented these ideas for you. Don't thank me. I'm an idea-generating machine

Modern Mom 14/09/20(Sat)04:55 No. 2322 ID: eb89c4

Shit, those aren't too stupid, actually.

Well, maybe except the joggers one. Also, the stealing from women one wouldn't work because I'm not getting laid.

Modern Mom 14/09/20(Sat)15:48 No. 2328 ID: 857606

unfortunately battery technology is still a shit. I giant ass battery that would fill up an entire backpack would power your computer for maybe 2-4 hours- and take 24 hours or more to charge.

Also the battery would cost easily 80-150 dollars. DIY cost I wouldnt know.

I am looking for free computer parts.

Where are people usually stupid enough to throw out computers with functioning hardware elements still in them?

Are there special dumps for that?

I searched everywhere and couldn't find any particularly relevant information. I am currently in Denmark if that helps.

Modern Mom 14/09/12(Fri)06:40 No. 2310 ID: 15121f

I can only relate an experience I had in Mexico: there's a demand for recycled electronic components or just the raw materials, so when I visited a dump the only items there were new arrivals (a large, long refrigerator, probably from an icecream shop) and most were already claimed.

Japan is notorious for throwing away their consumer electronics after a minor fault. IF you are lucky enough to find a dump site bring a screwdriver and other small tools to take apart appliances so you only get what you need. Most dumps charge by weight, not utility of the item, so you can save even more with a little screwing around.

Good luck and report back if you find anything!

Modern Mom 14/09/20(Sat)15:38 No. 2326 ID: 857606

some electronics stores will recycle computers for free, give us your old one, come buy a new one is their scheme.

Just walk in and ask them if they recycle electronics. If they do, come in another time and say that you recycled something and that you'd like to get it back because- whatever sob story. The bigger the store the better- as they will likely not remember you.

Most stores will gladly let you dig through it. If they ask you to describe it, just say youll know it when you see it, or that it was a dell or whatevers most common.

I work at one of said stores. People come back legitimately for their recycled shit all the time (which we threw into a bin).

And people throw away perfectly good PC's too. Sometimes the HDD is busted and we'll tell them its 200 dollars to fix, and into the trash it goes. But one could easily cobble together a working machine from the pile for free, put linux on it and have a decent enough free PC for basic use.

Modern Mom 14/09/20(Sat)15:43 No. 2327 ID: 857606

oh, and as an added note.

Most store want to make money, even your big ones with underpaid workers. Dont go in just begging. Say you want to buy a Hard drive, even pick one out and say your going to try and repair it. Jerking around a salesman is hella easy. Everyone they deal with doesnt give them a dime until the end anyways.

buying into risky, hyperinflationary currency that until recently was a joke for neckbeards.

all these are not only dangerous and illegal but not worth the time for the reward.

Yeah, OP, I'm surprisingly on board with the 'use it to clean up and get a decent job' hypothesis.

For instance, you could use it to buy two different suit jackets, three pairs of smart trousers, 5 shirts, two pairs of shoes, some ties. It would be hard to squeeze an entire good quality wardrobe out of your cash, but if you live in a big city and spend a few weeks meticulously going through every charity shop you'll be amazed at what you can find. If you don't have the taste/time then you can just buy a three-piece from John Lewis/Marks and Sparks for like £150, but be warned that at this price the work is shoddy, done by some kid in the phillippines or whatever, and you are going to have to wear it gently or the buttons will start falling off in a surprisingly short period of time.

Also regarding that last buy some needles and thread and get into repairing your clothes, it ain't that hard and makes all your garms immortal.

Modern Mom 14/09/14(Sun)00:37 No. 2315 ID: e22576

These ideas are very illegal and lots of work for very little money.

You might as well just get a job at McDonalds flipping burgers, at least that's legal, reliable and consistent money with minimal effort.

Hey there guys. I am a hard working 21 year old, and I've set aside $1500 from wage slaving to begin an investment portfolio. I'm currently considering using a chunk of that money to purchase silver bullion, because it seems like a guaranteed profit over the long run. Pictured is the exact object with which I would like to start my financial future, a 1kg silver bar that can be had for only $629 in the current economic climate. Does anybody have any tips for the poor, wannabe investor such as myself? And is anybody else starting this journey or thinking about it?

This thread is the same topic, repost there and delete this thread?

If you can't delete it just report it and it'll get removed.

Silver's cool but afaik its price fluctuates greatly. It will be useful in a post economic crash era though.

Not op but I called three fast food chains customer service, and I said "I was at your insert fast food chain and my food was cold fries were soggy, and I didn't even eat all of it" I made a mistake and said that this happened during lunch time (one manager made it little harder)

So, I have free combo meals at 3 different fast food chains for this weekend/next week, and a gift card for another food chain coming in the mail.
