Hello /jew/, I'm leaving home here in a few months and was wandering about kitchenware. My family refuses to help me whatsoever. What is the best way to go with cookware at first? cheap and shitty, or the more expensive longer lasting stuff?

This goes for everything kitchen related. Cups,plates,silverware. Everything.

Honestly, whether or not cast iron is worth getting at first depends on how you cook. Sure they're great, if you use them. I'd tell you to start off with a 10" saute pan (like a frying pan but steeper walls and with a lid), either a 2 qt or 3 qt pot, a flat pan for baking, and maybe a casserole dish. With that, you'll be able to do practically anything you want. Over time you may find you prefer a different size (like a 3qt you may find overkill, or no where near big enough if you like to make a lot of soup at one time, a 10" might be pretty big if you only ever use it for one egg in the morning, etc.). With that said, I think it's a little better to go bigger than you think you'll like.

If you go with nonstick, GET WOOD OR PLASTIC utensils. If you use metal, you *will* fuck up and mar the surface.

As for quality, I'd spend around $20-40 for each piece looking for the thickest material I can find for the pots/pans. Bakeware is more whatever unless you get serious about baking. Never, ever immediately put hot cookware directly into water. It'll warp and become a pain in the ass to use/completely unuseable. The thinner the material, the worse it can be. If you can't afford that much, get whatever you can and just be very mindful about warping.

Get a good chef's knife, at least 10". It doesn't have to be a $500 Wustoff, but it also shouldn't be a $5 K-Mart one either. If you live in a decent sized city, find a restaurant supply store, and they should have some decent ones for around $20. Learn at least the basics of caring for blades. This is a safety thing. Sharp knives without nicks are safe. Dull knives with knicks aren't. Likewise, get a cutting board. They're cheap and they protect your knife and whatever else you would be cutting on. It doesn't have to be expensive, just anything that's wood or plastic and you're good.

Ok, I have a bit of an unusual problem.

My grandmother died a year ago and left behind a fuckload of shitty furniture. I want to help my parents sell it because they effectively became poorfags sponsoring my education.

Now, this would usually be no problem except the fact that they live in a shitty 2nd world Eastern European country, and in a small(15k residents) town no less. A garage sale, or a Craigslist ad or really anything of the sort is not an option here.

So what the fuck do I do? I doubt that anyone here has experience with this kind of issue, so maybe just help me brainstrom one up? I really want to help my old folks, but can't do so financially because of being stuck in the post-bachelors limbo.

Clean it, take lots of good pictures, and sell it to some wealthy Americans with more money than common sense on eBay. Even with international shipping they'll fucking pay through the nose if you include all the buzzwords they're looking for.

Cob home general thread Modern Mom 13/03/16(Sat)20:55 No. 1065 ID: f32f24 [Reply]

File 136346374788.jpg - (51.12KB , 384x269 , cob home.jpg )

Serp /jew/. I need ideas today.

I'm wanting to build a cob house somehow, preferably outside of the U.S. in a country such as Wales, Canada or the like (basically somewhere forested with good hills, mountains and rivers). Ideally I'd like to start an eco-village, but let's stick with the former for now.

How might I go about doing this? Currently I'm working two jobs (both minimum wage, I'm afraid) in order to pay my current living expenses and save up whatever little I can. I may be attending community college soon to work toward an Associates degree, but I'm not convinced college alone can help me achieve this, as I think I'd be getting myself farther in debt than necessary or even practical in this current economy. Basically, I don't want to become a debt slave after I earn my Associates if I can avoid it. I've also been considering focusing on a specific trade for awhile before transferring to a bigger university first in the hopes of being that much better off.

How might I be able to earn up enough credit (and whatever else might be necessary) to buy arable land in another country to do this? Ideally I'd like to go completely off-grid, but that requires me owning land and a home (desiring cob design in my case) first.

I guess I'm looking for a few basic answers and general insight. My questions are:

>Is college (for either Associates or Bachelors degrees) really necessary to get my feet off the ground?
>Would it be worth my time instead to focus on an immediate trade (probably something like railroading, welding, carpentry or forestry)?
>What are the stipends outside of the U.S. for buying land? I'd like to shoot for Wales if at all possible.
>What are the regulations for cob home design?
>Any further thoughts or ideas?

This is true. The extreme weather in both seasons makes it very hard to have a shelter as it'll be freezing cold in winter yet in summer it'll be extremely hot. Land is very expensive

Could it be a viable option for us here in the west?
My guess is the biggest risk is vandalism and theft.

Depends on the vending machine type, population age-density and your base costs.

If you can't get a small area, then your transportation costs, time to count and the like are extremely high.

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?

If you can live at home, then you should live at home. There's no reason to move out unless you need to move to a different locale, have money to burn, or you're starting your own family.

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.

Nice, I'm working on a new series and I'll need cover art done, I just have to finish it.

Since I'm here, I'll also update you folks on the progress, successes and failures I've experienced!

I was doing ghostwriting for a while, and I still do it from time to time, mostly when I need cash for something and I'm in between my own writing projects. I've made a decent amount with ghost writing (a bit over 1k) within a couple of months, which felt pretty good, I guess I'm at least decent at it, though each time I go back and read my stuff from 6 months ago I laugh and think "Did I REALLY write that?".

I used Odesk.com, which is now upwork,com, but i had a bunch of personal stuff happen and I lost some good clients sinc eI couldn't deliver, so my rating went from nearly perfect to like 3.5 or something, which sucks. I use guru.com as well, but I got jewed out of a 350$ book series when the client up and decided to take my books and her shekels, then run off to Jerusalem, but I'll just self publish the books myself. I put out a lot of free stuff on smashwords and I'm trying to find ways to reach more people, any help there would be great. So far I'm on literotica, amazon and smashwords, but I want to be more places if possible.

Again, thanks for the cover art contact! I will contact them and see if they are interested!

Jew on my friends!

I've tried so many things, affiliate marketing, livestreaming video games (twitch), youtubing (vlogging/gaming), writing, blogging (haven't tried ebooks on amazon, on a website or both yet which I will work on next most likely).

Creating an online store/business via shopify and Amway. So far not much success with anything, I get some money from referrals from affiliate marketing and supplement referrals I still get.

My twitch following is growing though slowly.
