Manual labour.

I tried that once. I earned US$10/hr for wiping old retarded people's arses. I'd like to try something different.

if this sounds too hard for your pussy self it's because you were lazy during a vital time in your life (teenage years). If you took action then you probably would already be a home owner. For maximum profit realize that the anime is rotting your brain and the video games are a massive time waster.

I don't watch anime. Anyway you massively overestimate people's agency in their youth: without fail, every single successful person I know either followed their parents' advice for a career, or simply did the same thing as their parent/s.

tl;dr don't be a cunt

I'm ineligible for an apprenticeship because I've already done a shitty useless degree. I'd be more employable if I'd went to prison, instead.

I'll just teach myself, shud b laff

How does having a degree make you ineligible for an apprenticeship?

I don't watch anime, and I don't play games. I spent my teenage years trying to get a job, but never landed one. The school preached far and low that if we went to College/University employers would be begging us to work for them, which obviously never happened.

TL;DR: You're fucking delusional.


You make the erroneous assumption that people can even get that kind of a job.

I took a look into apprenticeships and it's all shit I can do.

Yeah I'm fucked.

There's no easy option. Low paying jobs like McDonald's don't require a degree. It doesn't take a degree to become an entrepreneur. If you don't have any valuable skills this isn't really an option. I don't think drug dealers need a degree either.

Arts. If you can tolerate the Joollywood, ofc. And if you can produce anything.
Les belles lettres require only a calculator with word processor on it. Music can be produced with pirated software and/or quite affordable instruments. One instrument is enough for months, if not years.
Painting is trickier, good paints can bite the wallet.
Aaand thats it. Other arts require more people and/or way more money an individual can scrub.

It's called trade schools, anon. Trade schools are cheap - unlike college rackets - and they actually teach you skills you need to know for a job. If you want to be an electrician or plumber or welder or mechanic this would be right up your ally.

Whoa talk about good advice. I saw this post on the overboard around the time it was posted yet I never bought bitcoin. I am regretting not taking this advice though it would have been a hell of a ride keeping up with the price and all of that. I wonder if its worthwhile to try and use scripts to mine crypto from the cloud etc like with https://github.com/arnaucode/coffeeMiner?

Getting a job is a start. You can also make money simply by saving money. Although you must factor in inflation over the years, so slow prepping as you save is also a good investment and can mitigate the threat of long-term price inflation.

Some good ways to save money: 1) Do not go to college its too expensive (the student loan racket is horrific) instead go to a cheap trade school and learn some skills you would need for certain jobs. 2) Cancel cable TV and either get a stream box or use DVDs to watch stuff (its much cheaper). 3) Cancel the bill to your phone line and "smartphone", get a cheap old-fashion flip phone or jitterbug for just a small fraction of the cost. 4) Get an old used mechanical vehicle, fix it up and learn how to maintain it. Much cheaper than buying a new vehicle and going into debt. 5) Learn how to cook, believe it or not this will save you money overtime. You can prepare dishes for much cheaper than you'd pay at restaurants.
