I'm getting sick and tired of bullshit fees coming out of left field and screwing me just into the red. Can somebody suggest me a good bank so that when I put the monies in, it isn't fined out because I didn't have a prime number of cents in my savings account on a wednesday?!

Can breeding bugs be profitable? I heard tarantula egg sacks sell for quite a bit.
>> No. 59
Hmm. What about a bug farm in a poor country? These fuckers reproduce very quickly, so they could be a good source of food for the piss poor.
>> No. 60
You have to make sure there is a market for it and you are prepared to deal with idiots overseas that acknowledge they received the package or they died.
Other than that, its easier making money with insects then fish.
>> No. 84
you can make a ton of money selling snake venom, horse sperm and bull sperm.
>> No. 88
I remember seeing a commercial for a documentary on beetle breeding in Japan. I can't tell you where to start looking, but I know there's at least enough of a market for people to make a decent living off of it.

What would one do if they had a spending problem?

I've only had a job for a year now, my payslip tells me that I've been paid around $20000 since the time I've been there and I have (b)nothing(/b) left of it.

I sit here and think of all the stuff I've bought with it.. At least $1000 has been smoked either from cigarettes or weed. Everything else has just gone towards mainly.. rent.. food.. clothes and useless shit.. I bought myself an iPhone 4S when that came out, but that's really the biggest spending I've done in an entire year. Maybe bought myself a DVD or a CD every month or so. Diced out a couple of dollars for home (duvet, vacuum, kitchen shit, etc).

That $20000 is gone and all I've got to show for it is an iPhone. Unlike most company's, mine pays me fortnightly instead of weekly. So you can imagine:


-see's that pay has gone into account-
-drives to mall-
-splashes out most of pay-
-leaves only enough to (b)just(/b) survive on until next payday-

Start keeping track of everything. I keep a series of notebooks for all of my accounts as well as my expenses and income. Any time money moves through my hands it gets written down in at least two different spots, not including monthly and quarterly reports. That's a little intense, and an awful lot of work for most people, so I'd suggest that you look into quicken or something similar to start. Learn a bit of accounting, like how double entry bookkeeping works, and start applying that to your finances.

That said, it sounds to me like what you're really concerned with is saving some cash for a rainy day and the way to do that is pick a number (5% or 10% or 20%, whatever you can manage) and start taking that right off the top of your paycheck the same way that taxes are done. You'll want to open a money market savings account in a place where you won't look at it frequently. The idea is that you forget about the money once it's in your savings acct.

So, for example, your paycheck at 20k a year bi-weekly after taxes will be about $576.92, if you were to start saving 10% of that you'd take 57.69 off the top before any other spending happens and put it in a savings account where you'll forget about it. Now, that doesn't sound like a lot, but keep in mind this happens every two weeks, that's 26 times a year. So, if you can do this for a whole year, you'll have about $1500 squirreled away and hopefully earning ~1% interest. And that's not a whole lot, but it's better than nothing. If you get into this habit now, and make it just a part of your way of life, you'll find yourself in 3-4 years with $10-20k in the bank asking /money/ what the fuck to do with your savings so you can make money off of it.

Hope that helps.

Forex. What are your thoughts on this, gents?

I've always been fascinated by the idea of trading commodities in a volatile market, and currencies are as far as the word "volatile" gets.

As prices wildly fluctuate, there's no guarantee that you'll walk out with your deposit intact when the prediction you've made after much research goes kaput and the price heads the other way. However, with proper analysis, there's a greater chance that you will be able to ride the swing and end up with some fat loots for your troubles--even better if a moderate level of leverage is used.

As forex is ultimately zero sum, for people making it big in this dog eat dog market, there are people who fail to properly predict the movements in the market and lose out. However, I believe with proper studies into the forex market's technical, fundamental, and sentimental aspects, it would ultimately prove to be a profitable source of income.

Simple tools seem to work fairly well in my short experience. This may be because many people use them and they become sort of self fulfilling prophecies, or they may have some technical merit. Either way, you can make some money using them.

One great way to learn and to develop a trading strategy is to back test. Looking at historical charts and applying simple use of simple tools like Trend Lines, the Fibonacci tool/ratios, MACD, Moving averages, Momentum, Stochastic Oscillators, etc. Applying these to a specific few currency pairs and learning how the pairs react is a great way to begin.

If you want to get started, the first thing to do is get a demo account and practice with fake money. You can often get limited time free demo accounts from sources like FXCM, and you can start a live account with as little as $50 some times (live accounts come with unlimited demo accounts usually).

sorry there, guy
>> No. 97

I don't think it says anywhere in the rules that this is a safe for work board. Being the one responsible for this board's original creation and reinstatement and further for its current moderation I don't think whoever the fuck posted that is really in a position to decide if this is a safe for work board or not.

My position is y'all ought to be able to post whatever fucking images you want as long as you're on topic, and I believe my moderation has reflected that. This is an adult board with an adult topic and if you're browsing at work you do so at your own risk.

Now, if the users have a different opinion we can change the rules, but whatever faggot deleted those images and bitched at the poster of them needs to apologize because he stepped over the line.

Thank you very much Scrooge. I really didn't mean any harm by the pics and was just trying to be silly. I think this is a fantastic board, love this particular topic (forex, and /money/ in general), and will continue to spread my knowledge if applicable.

Also, If I remember correctly, the pics were safe for work (no actual nudity). They were just dudes making out, so here's chicks for a change.

What possible ways are there to make money off of gaming other than gambling?
>> No. 83
There's competitive gaming like going to tournaments, but that's even harder than it sounds because there are a lot of people out there with too much free time on their hands. Probably way more than you do. Really you would be way better off trying to make money through some other venue than gaming if you have the option.

(Also maybe you would count video game related jobs like game design or game testing, but for some reason your post gave me the impression that that's not the case)

Open a game cave. you could charge for hourly, do members only, or probably get creative and make money off it in other ways too.

How much money does a priest make? Does the pope make any money? How much profit comes out of running your own local church?

Im just asking.
>> No. 21
Being a Korean, you really do tend to notice all the Korean churches that are spread over the place. Most of them are small-time operation run in either house with adequate spaces, or small buildings that are for rent. A handful of them manage to luck out and move to a bigger building, but that's another story.

Most of them rely on the traditional evangelizing pyramid scheme to bring in new customers they would like to sell Jesus's love to. I've been to some places that struggled to stay afloat after a rather noticeable shortage of church members, but from what I saw, most of the churches more or less seem to break even at least. Some of them managed to operate for a full decade!

Most of the successful church leaders have a few faithful, persuasive members under them who are compelled to spread faith to the unsuspecting. The tithes from the devoted and from those who want to buy their way into heaven, as well as the special holiday treats they get upon further challenging the members' faith are then used to pay for various programs supposedly designed to further bolster faith, while in reality it's something the pastors do to pretend they're doing something productive. The remainder, which is admittedly the majority of the offerings, are then used to pay off various administration fees before going straight to the pastor's banking account, which I am sure would be full of God's grace he's going to spend on luxuries in His name, amen. Did I mention that profits accrued under the name of religion are tax-exempt?

So, all in all, the amount ultimately depends on how persuasive and articulate the pastor and his posse are, and how many children of God flock around in order to avoid eternal death. Pretty easy money if you're planning on sticking through it for the long haul and are devoid of any sort of morality; religion degrees are a dime a dozen.

I do taxes for a few smaller town ministers, and the truth is that they don't make shit. They have to pay their own social security taxes, and like small business owners, you're not usually raking it in because of that. Expenses are limited. Shit is fucked.

Now, if you're a megaevangelical super preacher of prodigious duping abilities, then yes... hand over fist, hand over fist. Don't know about the pope. I would bet it's more of a power than a money thing. The church as a whole maintains the monetary power, but the pope is just regular power. That's my (potentially off) assumption.

No real relation to the board, but can you loop For the Love of Money by The O'Jays on this board? Honestly would be 10 times better with it. Maybe with a gif of some sort so you could just throw a flash up and have money raining down. God this is sounding like a lot of work now. What was this board about again? Whatever, just the song would be enough to improve it.

If we have any money related music playing on this board, it should be this

Not "ambient" enough.

Gentlemen, gentlemen. These are fine ideas but come up lacking against the obvious and best candidate.

>> No. 48

I was in the school of thought that the atmosphere of the board would be suited for more quiet, relaxed tune to fit the nature of our discussion. Loudness and the particular "roughness" of the metal genre, while excellent in other circumstances, do not meet the criteria for what we're looking for.

That's why I'd like to refer back to the first music-related post in the sticky and suggest none other than the titular "Money" by Pink Floyd as the background music (It has the sounds of coins jangling and cash registers opening to a soothing, catchy beat; doesn't get any classier than this, gents).

That is one of the worst songs I have ever heard.
