Steps for free netflix

2. make a paypal account same email and password (so it wont get to confusing)
3. make netflix account, select paypal for the payment plan. (netflix gives a free month)
4. set a reminder in less than a month to cancel the service.

This gives you a free month

Streaming is much preferred to torrents because it uses less space on your hard drive and its not illegal. Plus shows like the west wing are 7-8 seasons with hour episodes so it would take forever to download.

I'm putting this in thrifty living because it would save me a lot of the problems caused by under-eating. I simply don't have the appetite others do.

What is the most calorie-dense food out there? Like preferably 500+ in just a tiny teaspoon of solid or liquid? Does any such thing exist?

I guess I would be saving money in the long run because then I don't suffer the consequences of under-eating.

Thank you.

Butter. Poeple on polar expeditions eat it for lunch. It contains 750 kilo-calories per 100g. If you melt 100g of butter you have a little less than half a glassfull. Close enough?

Modern Mom 15/08/29(Sat)01:24 No. 2661 ID: 418d7a

My experience with it has been the slightly higher priced "gold premium" tin in the tower shape mixes a bit better with water so you don't have to blend it.
Its a few dollars to make it much easier to stomach, although its really not that bad overall. Milk really amps the taste, along with adding fat and protein and sugar but it will up the overall price of each cup.
I say just use water. I've experimented with putting it in biscuits, oats, eggs, and other things and its does fairly well.

Modern Mom 15/08/29(Sat)01:32 No. 2662 ID: 418d7a

oats are fine, they are already cooked in most cases so its safe to eat them raw.
Fuck potatoes and corn meal though. You're better off spending money on anything else, what you're eating is basically sugar without the benefits of actual sugar. Veggies are best canned/frozen, they sell green beans in 7 pound tins at most meijer or bulk stores. I suggest getting frozen if you can't manage that, but remember that veggies are basically fiber plus water. You might be better off just getting metamucil, careful with the dose starting up as you'll be shitting 2 pounds a day.
People who live in the bush and consume mostly fiber don't get diseases like we in the west do, like cancer/diabetes. This is presumed to do with the fiber/sugar ratio, which is like 12:1 over there and the opposite over here.

I good thing to remember is that the only reason fruit is 'healthy' is the fiber in it that keeps the sugar from fucking your system. As for the vitamins and shit, I won't tell you to take a multi but fucking eat some goddamn spinach you cunt.

Huh, $2,000 and half a year of trade school and after 7 years in the business I'm making enough for a good apartment in an ok area of town, a good used car, 401k and good health insurance while socking away money for a house some time down the road. Hell, first job out the gate I was pulling down a third more than minimum wage.

BSME, graduated May 2014.

Spent the last year and a half working for my folks on the farm, essentially for room and board.

Yesterday I got an offer for an engineering position. I'm going to send in my acceptance today.

The job sounds pretty sweet, but I find it a little strange they didn't even want to have an in-person/on-site interview.

Hang in there everyone.

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.

One cast iron.
One everyday nonadhesive pan. (sautés, pancakes, everyday use)
One scrap pan (stainless if possible) so you can do most of your dirty shit with it without burning your nonadhesive

A set of big pots (pot, strainer, cover)
A set of small pots (for sauces and alike)

A microwave-resistant pyrex for rice

the rest is up to your choice.

All the mentions of Cast Iron cook ware, I gotta say you can't always find worthwhile stuff on the cheap. New cast iron isn't THAT expensive if you know what you're looking for. Got a brand new medium size pot, actually a 3 quart extra deep skillet with a lid that doubles as a pan from a reputable manufacturer for $60. Sure that's more than I'd usually spend on ANYTHING but that sucker's gonna last me a lifetime and it's true- cast iron does cook most foods better.

Modern Mom 15/08/16(Sun)13:18 No. 2650 ID: a206fc

Also, if you decide to cheap out on utensils that's fine, that's what i do, but wash them as soon as you finish your meal cause that shit WILL rust if you let it sit. Sometimes even overnight if you have rotten luck. Stainless steel really means stain RESISTANT.

Good trick I use, new or used, is to look at the forks. If the sides of the tines look a little rough/unfinished compared to the flat top and bottom, like it was just punched or cut from a sheet of metal, then that suckers gonna rust damn fast.

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.

I'm kind of a truck driver. Got my licence from army while in conscription and now I'm driving fish to different stores around my country and it amazes me how many times I have walked right in to store from loading bay. The backdoors have been locked like handfull of times I have delivered stuff to small stores.

Take into account that I'm only talking about small stores. Big stores usually have doorcodes or something like that to prevent unwanted people from entering but smaller stores hardly have cameras. And when you go away from big cities the less people tend to lock their stores backdoors. Just 10 kilometers from the city and they might only have one camera looking at the trucks going in and out the loading bay and those you can easily spot. This opens up a easy acces to the stores storage which is usually unguarded because it's more important to have someone at the cashiers.

I just find it funny that nobody seems to use this trick for cheap food and rather get caught shoplifting because they steal from places where there are more watchful eyes present.

i think im going to do this. i have a badass pair of black boots that are just a size too big, fuck

Modern Mom 15/06/01(Mon)08:22 No. 2609 ID: 8d779b

If you cruise the local thrift stores, particularly the alternative ones, you can luck out and find some cheap beaten Demonia or something, Demonia quality is shit though. You will probably never find New Rocks like you have pictured for too cheap but you could be insanely lucky. TBH you should probably just get a used pair of English-made Docs that will last you forever if you take care of them, and go for a trad-goth look with thrift store black clothing.

I actually have one goth friend who lives in a crazy thrifty fashion, and one of her main sources of income is buying tons of shit from very cheap thrift stores and selling them to nicer exchange stores, but she knows that business.

Same friend collects boots in any size she can, if it's too small you can cram a few different insoles in there and make them fit. You can also find nice insoles inside of shoes in thrift stores.

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.

I don't think the card readers are very sophisticated, you can use almost any kind of card.
There were people who were caught using their driver's licenses to steal gas. They all got caught, of course, because their driver's license number was stored by the machine.

Modern Mom 15/05/28(Thu)10:54 No. 2604 ID: df1dec

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?

You can post reviews on sex forums. You'll probably have to search a bit for the one that's more relevant to your local area. It's also possible to just lurk moar on those kinds of sites so if you insist on wasting your money on a ho you can find the ones that won't rip you off as badly.

Your biggest mistake was letting her get away with that shit. If you don't have the balls to say "no blowjob no cash," grab the money, and walk out, you deserve to be ripped off. However, she wants the money and will do what it takes to get it. It's up to you to make sure that "what it takes" is more than the bare minimum.

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.
