After seeing how cheap the blades for double edge razors are compared to the obscenely over-priced replacement blade cartridges, I'm interested in learning more about double edge razors.

It sounds like aside from being a fraction of the price, the blades even last longer since you can completely remove, clean and dry them, which is impossible with cartridges.

The problem: how difficult is it to shave with these things? Will a new user have a close shave at a fraction of the price, or a face full of blood-stained toilet paper squares? At this point, I'm forced to use the same dull blades that should have been trashed a long time ago, because I can't shell out the money for replacements.

tl;dr shaving for jews

Protip: wet your face, apply the stick of soap to your skin, then lather it up using the brush on your face. You'll use a fraction of the amount of soap compared to using a mug and transferring the lather to your face.

Just use a trimmer you fucks

Modern Mom 19/03/05(Tue)23:21 No. 3278 ID: 1619ea

If you've ever shaved with a bic razor, it's basically the same skill wise. It's not hard at all. They are safety razors so even if you get a tiny nick, it's not like you're going to die from a slit throat or something. They are about as dangerous as a bic razor.

Try a sampler pack of different blades because they are very personal and good for one person might be shit for the next. I use rainbow blades from UK, but shark, feather, gillette (from different plants) are a good bet. I used to get a blade called crystal that was really good too.

Mushroom Farm Modern Mom 19/02/17(Sun)21:19 No. 3272 ID: cc1b61 [Reply]

The meat is too expensive in my country and I just want to get protein with another way. I realized "eating less eat and more mushrooms" will be better for me and it's healthy. I found some mushroom growing kit but It's uselles after 2 harvesting. Someguys grow mushroom in plastic bag but as I see mushrooms grow so slow. Is there a way to make my own mushroom kit with wood or something else?

Modern Mom 19/02/17(Sun)21:49 No. 3274 ID: 1e5fb7

Here you go.
Also lentils are a cheap protein source.

Modern Mom 19/02/17(Sun)23:11 No. 3275 ID: cc1b61

Yes you are right. Proteins of mushroom is half of chicken meat but it's more healthy than chicken meat.

Modern Mom 19/02/19(Tue)04:20 No. 3277 ID: 1e5fb7

Not chicken, lentils. I used to live off of lentils and rice, because it was so cheap and filling. $2 worth of lentils was food for a week for me and I'm a pretty big guy. Lentils have a good amount of protein too. It might be worth looking into.

Questions about Social Security Disability Modern Mom 18/03/15(Thu)23:58 No. 3140 ID: d789d4 [Reply]

Amerifag here.

So to get SSDI or SSI you can - among other things - lose a one hand above the wrist and one foot above the ankle, both feet above the ankle, or both hands above the wrist.

I'm sort of trained as a programmer, but I'm currently homeless so I can't continue learning on my own (too busy trying not to die). I want to be disabled so I can get a place of my own via section 8 housing, pay my bills with SSI or SSDI, and then spend the rest of my free time programming until someone will hire me for a decent wage and then I can get off it.


So how can I amputate a hand and a foot in a plausibly deniable manner?

For my hand I could light and hold onto a sufficiently powerful firework (maybe a m80), but I'm not sure that will take it off above the wrist - more likely I'd blow my fingers off.

For my ankle I could eschew socks, pour water in my boots, lace them very tight, and then go on a 15 miles hike several days in a row. This will induce trench foot which should lead to gangrene. Alternately I could wait until winter, pour water in a boot while wearing a cotton sock, and then sleep with that foot out of the sleeping bag - this will also work on a hand, if I use a cotton glove in a leather (waterproof) glove.

How to panhandle Modern Mom 17/07/21(Fri)22:28 No. 3048 ID: 494c89 [Reply]

File 150066891966.jpg - (9.36KB , 259x194 , ninja2.jpg )

I used to be homeless. Here's how to panhandle and make money.

1. Be non-threatening. Don't have a huge dog that barks at people, don't get pissed off when people fuck with you (most white people won't, it's usually blacks or gang-banging messikins). Just don't be an asshole.

2. Be visibly homeless. Don't be completely clean.

3. Have a prop. This can be a wheelchair (it takes a few weeks to get the upper body strength and endurance to wheel yourself around), a cast (get one that you can take off), a cane.

4. You will make at least ten times as much money if you have a small, non-threatening dog. A dachshund is best, a chihuahua is second best. The dog should be calm and not bark at everyone - it takes a few days to train a dog not to bark at everyone.

People will ask you what you need, and a lot will offer to buy you dog food. It's sometimes possible to return the dog food for cash if they give you a receipt, but don't ask for it if they don't give it to you.

5. Be a woman, or at least an attractive man. Women make at least ten times as much money as men.

6. It helps if you have gray hair, especially a gray beard. I'm not sure how to dye hair gray though.

panhandlers are bullshit. this is not the depression. there is no shortage of employment or food. these people are actors, scam artists, fuck them they make more per day, tax free, than the people they con. don't feed the panhandler, ignore the panhandler.

If you get a blender, your food expenses might not go down, but your nutrient intake can go way up. Almost nobody has the time to make three fresh meals a day, and meal prep takes extra mental energy, so blend a fresh meal instead. The more energy you can dedicate to improving your health and financial situation, the better. Even if you don’t like smoothes, which is unusual, you can simply dilute the flavor with a extra yogurt or maybe even milk. A good fruit or vegetable smoothie entering just feels right entering your body. Plus, with greek yogurt, and maybe even a dash of unflavored protein powder, you can get a good macronutrient ratio. It’s a nice way to live, and it beats the hell out of most food advice I’ve heard. There’s a fairly wide variety of flavor options, so it’s unlikely to get boring. A pretty bougie at-home smoothie typically costs $2-$3, but can cost $1-$2 if you manage to buy in bulk. Why are you not doing this? One tall cup is about 400 to 600 calories.

Pic related, what your first or second attempt will probably look like.

Because I'm so poor I haven't had running water in over a year now and I can only live off stuff I can throw into the oven.

If I had water to clean the blender I would absolutely be doing it.

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.

The best, by far, book on cheap or any price underground houses is the book "50 dollar and up underground house" by Mike Oehler. There's videos on YouTube of his houses. I recommend it far above any other underground house book.

Warning this is illegal but you can easily pull this off if you keep your mouth shut.

Go to a dollar store, they usually have a prepaid card you can put up to like 500 and the card is like a dollar. You buy one and put about 10 or 15. you take the card to a gas station and make sure its busy. Use the card as credit. Fill up your tank pass the amount you put in there. Leave the gas station and cut the card.

Tired of spending money for pay TV?
A good old roof antenna will give you high definition broadcasts, up to 100 channels in some markets. A converter box can be used for older TV compatibility, $25-40

tvfool.com, antennaweb.org, rabbitears.info

There is also free satellite TV available, mostly international broadcasting but there's some cool stuff out there too.
Search for "FTA Satellite". A low cost fixed dish can run you $200-300 if you install it yourself. Ku-band (small dish) has a lot, C-band (large dish) has even more.

No monthly fees at all, for the price of 2 months of Direct or Dish you can get the equipment for free TV for life.

tv is for retards Modern Mom 18/11/18(Sun)06:44 No. 3244 ID: 6d522b

TV is supposed to be free: You're watching advertisements. You're paying for electricity. You're wasting time being programmed. It's possible to receive TV for free, legally.

The biggest retards are cable and satellite subscribers paying for clearer reception, advertisements.

I've done it, Anons. I quit my job which I hate. Although my family and friends are in a panic because I don't have another crappy minimum-wage income waiting for me, I am entirely comfortable with this. I need a month off to write a particular book, anyway.

One way to supplement my savings while I am not working is salvage. By "salvage", I mean a polite term for dumpster diving. It's not a consistent form of income, but I am more than willing to give it a try.

The pictured book is the Art and Science of Dumpster Diving by John Hoffman. He also wrote Dumpster Diving: The Advanced Course. These books are out of print and getting harder to find. I had to order the former twice through Amazon before I finally got my grubby mits on a copy, but there is an ebook form of it available. I give both a huge recommendation and can go into detail if anyone is interested in reviews.

I have been a scavenger since college when my allowance wasn't quite enough to cover both bills and food. I have never before attempted to sell nor trade anything I have recovered. Turning forty this year, I decided to rent a small storage unit and return to this hobby.

I will begin giving a summaries of what I am finding in following posts. Hey, I don't like seeing a wall of text in an OP either. Summary: I am having way more fun diving than I ever did at any job.

why would you spend $50 month to sell a used scuffed up door no one wants. i love dumpster diving , but damn watch those storage prices.

used vacuums? good luck selling those. i bought a dyson for $50 and fixed it up , nice ass vacuum.

heres a better tip. grab every usable item out of dumpsters, house flips , etc. clean it up a little, document it, and donate it to charity. taking the donations off your taxes.

i second the guy talking about working as a house cleaner. the guy they hire when they want an entire house worth of crap gone. i did it once , just one old guy who died. he had 300 $30 shirts. i guess he just wore one after the other each day of the year. fuck laundry!

filled up an entire van full of household items. kept the good, donated the rest.

only problem now is that i found out im a hoarder. so now every week i try to get rid of 10 boxes of shit.
