Hey /jew/,

How the fuck do I get a new job? I'm underpaid ($13/hr for $15/hr work) by a company that doesn't allow vertical movement. I have to out up with a manager whose usual response is "I don't care". At this point, this job isn't worth it anymore.

How do I get a new job? Every time I check craigslist, I find ads like "MAKE $3000 A WEEK DRIVING FOR UBER" or ads looking for part-time.

So, how do I find a job where I make more and keep the same level of benefits?

My local USPS is hiring, I didn't think they paid that well. I have a year or so of warehouse experience, too. I'll drop an application there.

Hopefully my being a 20 year old white male in good shape won't fuck me.

>Letter carriers for USPS require a test that is heavily bias towards women, minorities and former military.

There is a high-speed reading and memory test to separate the retards to carrier positions and the morons to clerks but that is about it. Lot of former military people though, but I think that's because pension savings and what-not carry over and they get a head start on retirement benefits.

Your young, companies are not going to give a fuck. A lot of people are looking for jobs. Make yourself stand out. Even if you work harder then others, you can still get fucked over by having the company putting you where they need a hardworker and have your pay set to other fuck offs that dont do shit.

I'm a student with an income of 540E/month.

I already work and would like no know what is the optimal use of, say, 500E / month with the intention of making more money.

I do not have expenses and politics (relations and influence trafficking) are another topic.

I can sell a lot of stuff I have and probably change my job to a more lucrative one, but since I now have a steady income I bet there's something I can do with it.

I'm not looking for something that requires constant, physical attention like buying/selling objects, but I guess I could try with silver.

SHould I invest? Should I save and study for something that will give me money?

It sounds like you've got the entirely wrong mindset to at this point, but I might be reading too much into the way you phrased your post. Nothing will ever give you money, you have to put forth effort of some kind. Also the amount you get is equal to the amount of time, effort and skill you spend/put into it, but effort is far more important than time in most cases and skill trumps the other two by a fair sight. That applies to something as simple as selling an item as well.

Pro-tip. If you need a super cheap music player buy a used android tracfone on ebay.

The audio quality via headphones sucks, but if you link it up via bluetooth it'll sound good. (I do this in my car)

I'd also recommend using the app poweramp, but make sure you go into the settings and enable max audio thread priority.

I was about to waste $50 on a Fiio m3 until I discovered my old tracfone would work great.

Hey jew. I am a new broke college student. I have perfectly good feet but they don't move fast enough. What do you guys think is the best legal way someone like me could acquire a bicycle or longboard without breaking the bank.

craigslist is not some magical place to get a good bike, maybe every once in a while, but most people are selling 88 dollar walmart bikes used and beaten for 50 dollars on craigslist. Its hardly worth selling this shit, and the bikes they sell are usually near-worthless in reality.

Also, I have some 600 dollar bike from years of yore, and the thing is just as shit as some cheapo bike to a casual biker like me.

here's the deal, you either pay for what a bike is worth (you do research it's new, and good) you get a stolen bike (fuck you), or you get a shit bike from walmart and kill yourself when the crank arm falls off your bike and you crash into a parked car because a retard asshole didn't put it together correctly.

you really cannot just decide that you want something cheap and expect quality. Compared to the price of a car, 1k is nothing for a quality bike and you will get a quality bike for that price. fucking save up you bitch. this is not an area where you can be #jew and think that it will end up all ok in the end, you'll either get something that isn't fit for you, it isn't built correctly, it is built with shit components and you'll end up spending the bikes cost in replacement parts, or you'll crash and never bike again.

fuck, these fucking people and their cheap bikes.

After seeing how cheap the blades for double edge razors are compared to the obscenely over-priced replacement blade cartridges, I'm interested in learning more about double edge razors.

It sounds like aside from being a fraction of the price, the blades even last longer since you can completely remove, clean and dry them, which is impossible with cartridges.

The problem: how difficult is it to shave with these things? Will a new user have a close shave at a fraction of the price, or a face full of blood-stained toilet paper squares? At this point, I'm forced to use the same dull blades that should have been trashed a long time ago, because I can't shell out the money for replacements.

tl;dr shaving for jews

I switched to DE razors. I use Personna Lab Blues. Made in America and $12.30 for 100 blades. I use one blade a week. I have an Omega Boar brush 10066 and I use Arko shave sticks. I was gifted a Gillette Super Adjustable razor from an elderly uncle. I spent about 60 bucks for blades, a brush and case of arko sticks. I have enough shaving supplies for 2 years of shaving minimum.

There is a learning curve with DE Safety razors. Its a minor skill. Initially you will deal with razor burns, nicks and cuts. It might take you a couple weeks to a couple months to learn to shave with a DE razor. Its very slow at first. After another few months or more and after developing some muscle memory you will get faster but probably not as fast as using a cartridge blade system(mach3 or similar). Aim for a socially acceptable shave and you'll get a very comfortable shave everyday. If you go for baby bottom smooth you'll be dealing with a lot of irritation and won't be able to shave every day.

There are some great resources available online though.

Badger and Blade forums

Sharpologist

On youtube look for "Mantic59" and "nickshaves" both have playlists for beginners. Many others post shave reviews on youtube for products.

I'll never go back to cartridge razors again. They tore up my neck and caused in grown hairs. Now that I know how to shave with a DE Safety Razor I don't have any of those problems and after the initial investment in a razor and brush I pay about 30 cents a week to shave(10 -15 cents per razor blade and the rest on shave soap and witchhazel)

Modern Mom 16/09/03(Sat)15:37 No. 2872 ID: f3169f

Protip: wet your face, apply the stick of soap to your skin, then lather it up using the brush on your face. You'll use a fraction of the amount of soap compared to using a mug and transferring the lather to your face.

Does anybody use a Japanese style futon to save apartment space? I was thinking about doing this, but I know nothing about this foreign concept. How does one go about buying a Japanese futon, and how do you use the damn thing?

During high school our house got infested with bed bugs, which was disgusting. We think my sister's meth-addicted boyfriend infected our house, but anyway the infestation quickly eliminated wood furniture from our house. Our beds, our dressers, and some clothes. I was fine with the change. I slept on the ground on blankets and a single pillow. When we got beds again after fighting off the infestation, the mattress felt too soft and my back got twisted.

I don't like beds, but I use them. I'm thinking of going to buy a futon to save space.

How do you store futons?

I like putting cheese slices on a ¢99 bag of Doritos as a nice nacho appetizer before I eat a ¢99 Banquet TV dinner or buttered egg noodles with salt and pepper. Hell, hard boiled eggs can be made into deviled eggs or egg salad. Eat egg salad with Doritos like normal chips and dip. Get creative!

How does one make counterfeit dollars? My buddy did it, back when I wasn't interested in knowing it, but he died back in 2010.

I don't want to make big bills since they catch on to that quick. Just small bills, like 1s and 5s. There was also someone counterfeiting 20s in the area so I'd be waiting and using different bills anyways. A basic run through of how to do it would be nice. It'd help me out a lot.

Wash the singles and print 10s. Don't be too greedy. And never spend them alone, three fakes looks bad, one fake and two real is plausible (if you‘re caught).

Fraud is probably higher return for lower risk anyway.

Dude they will even thumbprint money to find you. And it costs a lot to invest in legit equipment. You can't use an inkjet because they give off a pattern that can be traced. Most printers don't allow you to print bills but you could get around that. However, the risk to reward ratio is way too fucking high. I've never encountered a good enough fake that you couldn't tell upon sight.

Not just inkjets, all color printers sold in the US are required to print a pattern. Inkjet, laser, copier, all print a pattern that can be traced back to that individual printer, and the authorities use sales records (manufacturer to distributor to store to owner) to track down the current owner.

What I thought about doing was buying a color printer from a equipment liquidator, basically company that buys equipment from failed businesses then sells to anyone who shows up with money. Pay cash and go a place that doesn't require ID (some do, some don't).

My problem is I moved so and have no idea where the liquidators are here, or even if there are any. The ones I went to (for legitimate needs of my employer at the time) bought their stock from dozens of states.

Okay, I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but an opportunistic channer interested to see if the price of Air Malaysia had crashed after the disasters. Since they are more or less simply an unfortunate happenstance, the fundamental value of the airline shouldn't be any less and should correct itself over time. On this assumption, I started some research and you know what, the price of the airline crashed one week before the first plane went missing. What the fuck is going on? Check out the one year charts for their share price on any website and the dates for both disasters. Riddle me that.

Not much of a riddle, OP.
If you were the airline and lost massive $ in your stock, you'd probably quickly start running a leaner operation cutting maintenance costs and overworking skeleton crews, to compensate, cranking up the likelihood of disaster.
