Congratulations you poor bastards have earned your own board. Don't fuck it up. Any relevant rules will be created/added to this post when the time comes, but for the meantime try to keep it SFW.

Go Wild

Jesus Christ I'm useless; I should have specified that this board is for poor niggers to share money saving tips/vouchers and whatever.

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.


STEP 1 - GET A FUCKING JOB

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.

STEP 2 - START SAVING MONEY

Could someone direct me to some quality VoIP services? I've had my cell phone turned off for over two months now. I don't plan on wasting $30 a month on calling and texting local numbers as well as family. Preferably looking for free services. I'm about to try to order a cheap headset with a mic as I don't have a microphone besides a Rockband mic that pretty much has stopped working.

A bit late, but look into running your own FreePBX box (free) and just paying for a SIP service like Flowroute (~1 cent/min). If you portforward, you can get phone calls wherever you can get internet

Hello everyone,

Recently, I've re-stumbled upon some great pieces of literature made by anarchists in the late 1960s.
Over half of it is about how to make explosives and drugs, but there a good few other pieces by them on how to live is a free "yippie".

This one is called "Fuck The System" and details on how to live completely free in New York City by finding free food, getting phone calls with those fake coin tricks, etc. However, this is all completely outdated.
https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Fuck_the_System

Could we make our own, modern, version?

File anarchy_cookbook_2000.pdf - (937.53KB )

Over the years, people made modifications and additions to the Anarchist's Cookbook, mainly on BBS' and (some still running) Gophers. The end result is a much more accurate, much more up-to-date version of the book.

>>3148 whilethat may be the case, there is still quite a bit of valuable information in there. For example, there is information on how to pick locks, rip off vending and change machines, and a lot of phreaking (including getting payphones to give YOU money). If there is any gram of useful knowledge that can be gleaned from it, it is far from worthless as a resource

Hey /Jews/ I've been trying to live the frugal lifestyle. Recently moved into an apartment in Southern California where I'm paying 840 a month for a studio. I don't really have close friends that are financially stable enough to room with. My question is though, (got off topic)
While living a frugal lifestyle, what do you guys do for fun? When I loved with my parents I had disposable income and didn't really care about saving. I could go out with my mates and get drinks or another hobby of ours was shooting but all of that is so expensive. I guess gaming but that gets old too.

TL;DR what do you do for fun that's frugal?

Learning new skills is the ultimate thrifty pastime. Learn how to do basic electrical work, fix your car or bike, learn how to cook or repair shit, learn shit that looks good on your resume (use Duolingo to be conversational in some languages or learn to program or whatever).

This. If you can learn how to do something for yourself, you can save a lot of money from having others do it for you. You can also try learning a skill to sell, such as programming or becoming bilingual and offering translation services

Am I the only one on this board who’s thrifty because he wants to become financially independent? Can we have a financial independence thread?

I started planting two potato plants from cuttings and a bunch of tomato seeds. Thinking of either selling them to a farmer's market or use it to provide for myself and enjoy a good salad. In the future I'll also try planting lettuce and otger greens. Maybe I can also extend this to grain crops, but would they work with a makeshift hydroponics apparatus?

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.

I knew a girl that was on disability because she was "bipolar". Fake it to make it.

Only thing she did all day was play WoW and ate. She seem "normal" to me with nothing wrong. B ut I think she just faked it so she won't have to do shit.

What are you currently doing to get rich apart from your job and your financial markets investments? Here are my current projects:

* entryism: Penetrated a powerful political party and building clout while advising a minor parties with big ideas about using technology to allow constituents to directly vote for policies and for a minor party with a lot of support for science

* doing cancer prevention, policy and addiction research

* might switch to international mental health research

* learning how to use amazon web services as a cloud based server

* mental health first aid training course next week

* organising a charity conference

* applying for transitional housing out of category 3 homelesness
