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.

How do you plan to keep the company of women when you are older and still poor?

I'm not trying to mock anyone. I just can't get over the despair myself. What are you doing to avert the crisis?

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

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

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.

If it's close to your home. Then don't be in a rush to move out and save up your money for something good and be in a better situation after college.

Warning this is illegal but you can easily pull this off if you keep your mouth shut.

Go to a dollar store, they usually have a prepaid card you can put up to like 500 and the card is like a dollar. You buy one and put about 10 or 15. you take the card to a gas station and make sure its busy. Use the card as credit. Fill up your tank pass the amount you put in there. Leave the gas station and cut the card.

Enjoy

Well there's actually Vanilla Visa. It's about $5 for the card itself, and you can load up to $500. Greendot and that other shit is complete shit because they charge you monthly and they need your SSN to ultimately fuck you over.
Vanilla visa can be found at CVS or 7/11. They can be a little difficult to spot but they're really nice

Analysis by a Gassy Dude That Guy 15/05/28(Thu)16:53 No. 2605 ID: 25fc56

I call b.s.

I work as a clerk at a 24 hour pump-yourself, and I have an A+ certification in computer networking. If the purchase is done as a pre-pay, the system will not authorize the pump to start unless the purchase has already cleared. If the purchase is done at the pump, the system is even pickier; I cannot say that it specifically checks the balance of every prepaid card in exactly these circumstances, but the system rejects customers all of the time for reasons far less than an adequate amount of money on the card's account. The method described by OP would simply not work in our system nor any system I know.

I can offer specifics about the networks and software used if someone wants it, but even when I worked at a truck stop a year ago with an entirely different system, the method described by OP would not work their either.

So you guys are going to love this one. I called up a hooker for the first time to see what kind of shit I could get myself into. Except, I actually ended up in big shit and had a shit time. She comes down for our meeting 15 minutes late saying she's tired which yeah I can understand but then we get upstairs and it's "wait 5 minutes i'm tired" then we get into it I pay this degenerate 80 pounds (roughly 140 us bucks) for 1 hour and shes already way behind on time, So I get it up and start fucking then I ask her to go on top and she's like nah. Blowjob? Nah. too tired. So not only does she fuck me over, She said in her ad she was completely shaving and the thing was a fucking bush. Then there is her pictures which were either outdated completely or just photoshopped to fuck AND her fucking breath stank! Wtf! I can't imagine how many poor bastards this skank has screwed over. I left early without my money telling her to prepare for a shit review. Then I have her mobile number so maybe I should just give it out? Thoughts on this?

Couple of ideas:

1) Use a phone booth, book her for another gig a fair few miles away, then don't turn up. That's 50p to consume her time, money and stitch her out of other opportunities to earn. Repeat ad hoc till you feel justified (Pro Tip: Use a different phone booth each time so you don't get caught out with caller ID).

2) Same as above but rather than not turning up, turn up and bash her brains in.

This is an underrated comment.

People don't call cheap hookers for high levels of customer service. They call hookers to get their dicks wet. You got your dick wet. It was you, OP, who were the most dishonest of the two of you for not paying.

If you are still married to the idea that hookers should be striving for five star ratings on Angie's List, then do it yourself. Sell your on ass on Craig's List, go that extra mile, and see how much respect you get for it.
