    No Workers?

    Not to be pedantic... I think it was Freakonomics that explored it, and found that the whole drug-selling business is a very steep pyramid — the base makes barely minimum wage while carrying all the risk, and only the guy at the top makes good money. It just has more of “cool” factor for the...

    Sounds like a kid who knows where it’s at. Good job!

    No Workers?

    Dang it , just remembered an even better plan for making it on that amount of money, that my friend did and I’m kicking myself for not doing: Live with parents, while working, for two years. (I’m assuming that awesome $25/hr+benefits gig). Save up $60k (at $33k/year take-home, super tight but...

    No Workers?

    I just did a simple calculation on this — $25/hr plus benefits is an EXCELLENT start to a career, and quite comfy lifestyle, even in our area. Pardon the math here: $25/hr is roughly $50k/year, take home is roughly 2/3, so $33k/year ==> $2.7k/month cash. yeah, you can’t rent on your own in...

    Please read this slowly, several times if you need to: WaWa get held up, robbed and looted all the time. They charge fees and sell products at significant mark-up to cover operating costs and risk. The same as soda vending machines and third-party ATMs. The same as would be with those...

    Also, risk for all those ATMs regularly destroyed by thieves and rioters.

    Please tell me how third-party ATM machines are different from soda machines (the ones dispensing bottles)? I have my paycheck direct-deposited into my bank account, and I am completely able to withdraw every single cent of it , the moment it clears, at the local branch of my bank for free...

    Everyone does have free access to their money - it’s called “cash”. Take out all your money, even if it’s currently in a bank, at the local brunch for free, carry it in a satchel — no fee ever. ATM fees are those pesky convenience fees — same as why soda in a vending machine costs more than at...

    PGPD Detectives Arrest Suspect For Stealing Multiple Airbags

    Bastard ! In my old neighborhood there was a constant crime wave of airbag thefts . Those bastards were quick and sneaky: they broke into my neighbor’s Accord and removed the airbag while it was parked 20’ away from my living room, where I was watching TV at the time — didn’t hear a thing...

    What the hell is the matter with facebook

    Like drugs or ciggies, you will go through a withdrawal period, but your life will be better for dropping them. Not a cent to the lib bastards!

    Search and Rescue underway in 7D?

    Those Ukrainian teenagers have been reading Fenimore Cooper again? Hope for everyone’s safe recovery, and that nobody gets scalped.

    Mitch and Cam: a fun fact

    Back in the 90s-00’s that was the strategy, and imho the correct one — to show previously marginal groups as, you know, just people, with their own problems. That made the general populace relate to them, and no longer fear them. There was even a movie about a Trannie that was so well-made, I...
