Okay, so I have a question and since it relates to making money, I thought I'd post it here. Obviously mods are welcome to tell me to GTFO if I'm wrong.

Anyway. I take digital notes of every book I read. This helps me remember the material and pace myself so that I maintain satisfactory retention. It also helps to go over the notes if I need to, use them as reference material, etc.

This gave me an idea of running a blog/website where I'd post short summaries of the books I read. I mostly read non-fiction such as textbooks, essays and scientific papers. Hence, I thought this service would be valuable to students who either are unwilling to get the textbook or need to access the most important parts of the material quickly.

Would this work? Is it permissible in terms of copyright? Would you use this kind of service?

Obviously, all the material will be free and I'll make money from ads and paid link shorteners.

I think it's more like Cliffnotes. Also probably a bit more specialised, since Cliffnotes seems to also have fiction.

Seems like a fair idea. But it won't be too big or anything. Don't think you'll make enough to pay rent or anything with it.

Is living in an apartment worth it? I am going to college close to home and currently living there. However I am getting a degree in a job that's not too generous in pay but I still enjoy it and can do it from home. I don't really need a huge house, only video games and a little something for recreation. But since I usually keep to myself, am not messy, and am quiet then would you reccomend living in an apartment? They are cheap and seem to be nice, but if anyone has lived in one, would you reccomend it?

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.

Enjoy

Well there's actually Vanilla Visa. It's about $5 for the card itself, and you can load up to $500. Greendot and that other shit is complete shit because they charge you monthly and they need your SSN to ultimately fuck you over.
Vanilla visa can be found at CVS or 7/11. They can be a little difficult to spot but they're really nice

Analysis by a Gassy Dude That Guy 15/05/28(Thu)16:53 No. 2605 ID: 25fc56

I call b.s.

I work as a clerk at a 24 hour pump-yourself, and I have an A+ certification in computer networking. If the purchase is done as a pre-pay, the system will not authorize the pump to start unless the purchase has already cleared. If the purchase is done at the pump, the system is even pickier; I cannot say that it specifically checks the balance of every prepaid card in exactly these circumstances, but the system rejects customers all of the time for reasons far less than an adequate amount of money on the card's account. The method described by OP would simply not work in our system nor any system I know.

I can offer specifics about the networks and software used if someone wants it, but even when I worked at a truck stop a year ago with an entirely different system, the method described by OP would not work their either.

So you guys are going to love this one. I called up a hooker for the first time to see what kind of shit I could get myself into. Except, I actually ended up in big shit and had a shit time. She comes down for our meeting 15 minutes late saying she's tired which yeah I can understand but then we get upstairs and it's "wait 5 minutes i'm tired" then we get into it I pay this degenerate 80 pounds (roughly 140 us bucks) for 1 hour and shes already way behind on time, So I get it up and start fucking then I ask her to go on top and she's like nah. Blowjob? Nah. too tired. So not only does she fuck me over, She said in her ad she was completely shaving and the thing was a fucking bush. Then there is her pictures which were either outdated completely or just photoshopped to fuck AND her fucking breath stank! Wtf! I can't imagine how many poor bastards this skank has screwed over. I left early without my money telling her to prepare for a shit review. Then I have her mobile number so maybe I should just give it out? Thoughts on this?

Couple of ideas:

1) Use a phone booth, book her for another gig a fair few miles away, then don't turn up. That's 50p to consume her time, money and stitch her out of other opportunities to earn. Repeat ad hoc till you feel justified (Pro Tip: Use a different phone booth each time so you don't get caught out with caller ID).

2) Same as above but rather than not turning up, turn up and bash her brains in.

This is an underrated comment.

People don't call cheap hookers for high levels of customer service. They call hookers to get their dicks wet. You got your dick wet. It was you, OP, who were the most dishonest of the two of you for not paying.

If you are still married to the idea that hookers should be striving for five star ratings on Angie's List, then do it yourself. Sell your on ass on Craig's List, go that extra mile, and see how much respect you get for it.

Hello /jews/ I have been thinking of a way to make money off of youtube monetizing... it might not be fast but it is sure as hell easy. So basically get one to two or more people who are willing have them make a few accounts and click any ads on videos you have on your channel... simple

Lol, good thread.

There was a guy claiming to be a Google employee on /7ch/. He claimed that within the last couple of years Google had become the most money-grubbingest whore possible with regard to their monetization policies. P much any up and comer likely to earn a big payout gets nixed on false pretenses, the reasons for which (according to their user agreement) they do not have to supply. He was paid commission on how many new users he could get rubbed off the adsense list.

GREENLIFTING:

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.

I highly doubt but cannot guarantee it's not placebo. I never used to give a shit about organics until I ate an organic one at my friends house and noticed that it didn't make my mouth itch. I only found out after I had it that it was organic. I have done blinded tests with a friend and have always been right.

As I said, the pesticides leech into the flesh. It's probably just an allergy to the pesticide or whatever is sprayed on it. I'm not trying to say "Wow this shit is poison!!!!!! omg must detox!!!"

Hehe I also have celiac's so fuck off! I think there are a lot of people just following trends with the gluten-free stuff, but as someone with celiac's i'm totally fine with that as it supports an industry that helps me greatly.
Regardless, placebo effect is still an effect. Though I do believe many more people are having difficulty with gluten as of late I haven't done enough research to backup that claim. To pubmed I go!

this is p. interesting tho: gluten and dairy cause autoimmune reaction in the brain in sensitive people

Beating traffic camera tickets & automated toll road fees Clever Jew 12/12/20(Thu)00:11 No. 688 ID: 661b98 [Reply]

OK so I have this idea how to beat traffic cameras and automated toll roads that bill you by taking a photo of your license plate.

Basically, it's illegal to drive without a license plate and it's illegal to obscure your license plate. But what if you camouflage your license plate in a way that makes it impossible for a machine (or overly time consuming for a person) to find where it is in a photo?

You'd do this by printing a tiling license-plate pattern all over the back of your car and affixing your real license plate over one of the plates in the picture. Or instead of printing your could use 1:1 flexible magnets that have the plate design on them.

What do you think would this work?

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.

1 lookup the frequencies you are interested in in your area.
2 check out the measurements for a yagi antenna on said frequency
3 build said antenna, which is cheap and very easy if youre willing to pay attention for about 10 minutes, you will need a few lenghs of copper wire and some wood or anything non conductive to hold them.


>>
Modern Mom 17/03/20(Mon)08:46 No. 2979 ID: 193bde

You may also want to look into software-defined radios and how to get TV from them, an rtl2832u dongle is about 7.50$US.

A yagi is has
-a driven element, meaning a U shaped wire, on end connected to the center wire on the coax, the other end conneted to the outer layer IE ground.
-a few parasitic elements, meaning lengths of metal measured to be resonant at the frequency you are interested in, the lengh and spacing in between each element is speficic to the frequency range you want, use online calculators or whatever design you find on the interwebs.
-one or several reflecting elements, meaning lenghs of wire larger than the others, so on so forth.

Onward, lad.
