Online consumer surveys Modern Mom 15/05/21(Thu)02:53 No. 2588 ID: d040d8 [Reply]

These generally will give you a little something to put into a Paypal account if you're persistent enough.

Stuff like MySurvey and Opinion Outpost are easier to sign up for but don't pay out as well or as consistently. You might get a few surveys that you get partway through only to realize you don't qualify for them (mostly by being the wrong demographic). However, Opinion Outpost sometimes gives referrals to Pinecone Research, which is a good one to get with because those surveys pay better and more consistently when they show up.

Most of these will give you online points that they encourage you to use in their online store, but the best deal is to cash them out into Paypal deposits. If you converted the points to dollars and compared what else is in their stores you'd realize that they're charging full retail price for most of that stuff, and paying full retail price is for suckers.

What is the job site with the most jobs syndicated together and the easiest and sumples application process? I want to pay local school kids to apply for jobs and write the cover letters on my behalf to save me time.

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?

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.

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.

Honestly, the battery itself will cost more money than you will ever save.

Modern Mom 14/09/26(Fri)09:04 No. 2346 ID: 08d10c

A laptop battery is much smaller than a backpack and charges slowly but in less than 24 hours. Other than that you're right, any battery with enough capacity for the plan to be worth the trouble would be huge and expensive.
OP should secretly develop inexpensive supercapacitors and use them to steal power.

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.

Modern Mom 15/02/20(Fri)21:01 No. 2539 ID: 0b7694

youll get about 1-3$ worth of copper per tv and each will take about 10 minutes to process, granted you have all the tools on hand

are you gonna dissassemble the tvs in the middle of the street or take them home? if you do it in the street, do you have the social skills not to not give a fuck about people watching you tweak out in the middle of the road? if you take them home what are you going to do with all the big glass CRT screens. theyre filled with lead and considered toxic waste.

also if the tv has been plugged in recently youre at risk for shock.

go make friends with a tweaker and he'll show you plenty of places to STEAL copper

Welp, I've been playing music on the street for cash for about a year now, The first spot I was playing got stolen I guess you could say, by some jerk off's who just showed up with a fucking band.

The past month I was playing with in a city.

A cop stopped me today and told me that the state I live in doesn't allow people to "solicit". I guess having a tip jar is the such.

I'm stuck dunno what to do.

I'm trying to scope out places but every where else in my town is basically city owned. Or company owned.

Are there any companies that just let people play a flopping guitar outside there store? Why are people so stingy toward's the idea.

I've heard people say that "People that do that make 400 dollar's a day" Witch is total fucking bs.

I dunno. Just no fucking clue what to do.

They take cash and valuables from out-of-staters, minorities, or other people they decide they can probably fuck over with minimal consequences. The line-of-battle police and military are generally poorly raised (jewish media) and universally poorly trained (lol low-class meatshield). Basically they can narrowly function as an adult in the capacity that society absolutely requires them to, most of the time, but if they have to make a single decision and act on their own, it is a certainty that they will catastrophically fuck everything completely apart from a moral state-of-mind.

So we a cop who has only written speeding tickets and settled domestic trouble so far, grew up making specific judgements about spics, nigs, goth-kids, etc., has an ugly whore wife that cheats on him, and in general is extremely confused by the lands outside of his home state, and is utterly tripped out by anything that's not from US, mexico, or canada. Actually this could be an accurate description of no less than 95% of sworn officers of the law.

So this guy
This guy
Is essentially
and could be ANYWHERE in the cycle of rage caused by the above any time you see him.

keep that in mind when dealing with the police

Modern Mom 14/10/16(Thu)09:11 No. 2385 ID: 58984d

A police officer on a bicycle pulled me over when I was a kid.

He gave me and my brothers vouchers for free ice cream because we were wearing our safety helmets while out biking.

Police have one goal and that's to enforce the law. Make them regret that goal. Find out what the fine for soliciting is.

I imagine there are first time and second time offense fines... don't carry an ID. Pretend to be homeless or extremely poor, talk in a confused and meandering manner. An endless manner. Also theres a reason most bums just use a guitar case, its implied but not illegal. Know the law better than the cops do, if you dispiute them on the spot and shake their confidence (and seem intelligent about it) you could avoid it. Remember that you can go to court over any fine and contest it, do these kinds of cases hold up in court? A cop wont fuck you if they know charges will just be dropped.

Modern Mom 14/10/16(Thu)09:15 No. 2386 ID: 58984d

also how badass are the cops in your town, you really dont want to be arrested and have your instrument impounded. If they threaten that then get the fuck out..

Good luck breaking minor laws no one really cares about.

Going to donate jizz for money. Quite good money, actually.

One problem. I have to meet the kid in 18 years if they want to.

Still worth it? What are the general risks of doing this?

Would really appreciate some advice here.
