Shalome fellow cheap asses.
Let's talk credit scores.
1. A credit score ranges between 300 and 900 points across the three bureaus http://equifax.com/ http://www.experian.com/
Over 700 is good, over 800 is a god, under 600 is untouchable.
2. You can build credit with a secured card from your local bank or credit union. No one approved me until I had mmy first secured. I put $500 down and after 6 months they gave the $500 and gave me a $5000 limit. 2 months later I bought my first house.
3. Things to remember. You pay interest unless you pay it off in full every month. Using over 1/3 of available credit looks bad on your report. If you worry over identity theft credit cards can be disputed, debit cannot, also you can freeze your credit by calling the bureaus monitoring is a scam.

I'm willing to answer questions on getting a loan, what kind of cards to get, what is a good deal, or getting mortgages.

My score is mid 400s due to my parents being ghetto and ignorant ni-...upstanding members of the african american community. I want to boost it but it will take me a few months to save 500$ that I don't need to touch. I want to get some items stricken from my credit report because they arent my fault, or are over 7 years old, what is the best way to do this?

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.

Bicycle Frames Modern Mom 14/11/12(Wed)16:00 No. 2443 ID: fbfe7f [Reply]

File 141580445629.jpg - (234.01KB , 470x700 , DSCF4508.jpg )

I'm looking to build myself a "cheap" bike that will replace my truck for all but long drives and when something big needs to be moved. I'm self building because quality bicycles are expensive, most new bicycles don't meet my requirements, and there are a ton of old frames that do satisfy most if not all of my requirements.

I'm about 5' 8.5" with a 30-31"-ish inseam. According to most online frame size calculators for a road bike I should be looking in the 52-54cm range and for a MTB I should be in the 17-18" range.
If I want to purchase a vintage mountain bike frame that does NOT have the downward/upward (depending on POV) sloping top tube which size should I use as a guide?

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.

if you want to take it up a notch, try using the self checkout and ringing stuff up that isn't fruit or veg as fruit or veg. a friend recently got a 12 dollar bottle of vitamins for less than 2 dollsrs cause she rang them up as bananas at 40 cents a pound or something

Modern Mom 14/11/07(Fri)07:52 No. 2437 ID: 38b5fc

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

Modern Mom 15/11/30(Mon)08:12 No. 2778 ID: 5a4584

Same experience with bananas here, so I don't think it is a placebo.

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

File 135595868682.jpg - (639.88KB , 1756x1000 , camo.jpg )

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?

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

File 141375408552.jpg - (128.51KB , 600x415 , tiny-house-home-design.jpg )

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.

Modern Mom 14/10/24(Fri)13:46 No. 2424 ID: 58984d

Im more concerned with where to put it. Buying lands expensive. Empty lots in the middle of nowhere can go for a few thousand dollars- but if you want to be anywhere near civilization costs go way up I thinks.

On wheels squatting implies you have a pickup truck- and power/utilities would be a constant issue. A permanent address would be more comfortable. I imagine renting trucks is a good way to go in all scenarios.

I think you can buy a cheep used camper anyways so you have to use junk and scrap to do all of your building- or else its no thrift at all.

I knew some people who built a legit log cabin when growing up. They had lots of issues with basement flooding, and the heater they bought constantly broke, so they would often rely on a simple wood stove and free wood off their property. Cool thing is despite it being a starter home, they still had like 16 acres of beautiful woodland which was dirt cheap I'm sure. Guy who built it was a metal worker/veteran. Thing was sturdy as hell though, like any other house.

1. Boil your brown rice.
2. Cut up vegetables; almost any will work.
3. Lightly oil the pan.
4. Add chicken, beef, pork, or shrimp of almost any kind to the pan and cook until browned.
5. Throw cooked rice into the pan.
6. Drop and scramble two eggs into the pan.
7. Mix it all up.
8. Add soy sauce.
9. Enjoy.

Yeah, but at least add a good sprinkle of canned beans or peas to each portion.

-the rice and beans make this meal a complete protein.
-also more fibre
-mushrooms are cheap and add a meaty flavour and texture
-a can of generic store beans can be had for maybe 20p/50c and can last a few days opened, as long as they are rinsed of any water inside and fresh water added every day. Keep them in a jam jar.
-soaking beans overnight and airing them actually breaks down phytic acid, causing less wind/gas and makes them more digestible.
-If you leave them for 1-3 weeks they will 'sprout' and you have maybe ten times the food weight you started with to add to stir fries, salads, etc (why do poor Asians eat beansprouts and use bamboo a lot? Because they grow ridiculously fast) plus they have multiplied in protein, vitamin and mineral content, turning a cheap, ready cooked store food into a superfood.
You can do this anywhere you have room for a few jamjars to rotate and keep dark, a cupboard will do.
You can do this with seeds too and the same benefits apply.
