Why is it considered a sexual offense to masturbate in the privacy of your own car? Isn't it private property?
There's been cases where people have taken that to court and lost.
If you're giving the missus the old Python regius and have the windows open, you can't get cited for it in most places. It's private property and you aren't actively making an effort to expose yourself to the public like hovering on the edge of your lawn with your dick hanging over the sidewalk.
What is the best 4 year degree to get these days?
heavy math and travelling is not what im looking for in a career
So, I've decided to attempt to get my forklift license. Anyone here do this as a profession? What should I expect? I've pawned most of my possessions to make this happen. I'm tired of living off 290$ a month.
I have one, and here in Europe, they first let you do a theory test (which is fairly easy, I got it without learning anything), then they let you ride around in a forklift and let you do general tasks. It takes about a day and costs 150 euros here
Nice. I'm a little intimidated by machinery, cause well , I've had lots of injuries. Do you enjoy doing it ? What is your pay like?
>Women entrepreneurs who appear on ABC’s Shark Tank experience the same kind of unfair gender bias as they do in real-life Silicon Valley. Female contestants on the hit reality show receive fewer investments than male contestants do.
>According to Mashable, when they do get money, female-fronted companies receive significantly lower valuations than businesses headed by men. According to data compiled by Rock Health CEO Halle Tecco, male founders received an average valuation of nearly $1.7 million, while women founders received an average of just over $781,000.
>Studies have shown that venture capital firms that have women in senior positions are more likely to invest in companies led by women, so the show’s female contestants have better luck when the panel includes female investors. Real estate mogul Barbara Corcoran invests in companies led by women 48% of the time, while inventor Lori Grenier invests 29% of the time. “It perfectly reflects what we see in Silicon Valley,” Tecco told Mashable. She also said, “Studies show that men are judged on their potential, whereas women are judged on what they already have accomplished. This means more bets are being placed on unproven men than unproven women founders.”
>Tecco also points out the women on the show ask for less money than the males. “Something is happening during the negotiation where the sharks are driving the valuation down and women are willing to give up more of their company to close a deal,” she said.
>Ann Crady Weiss, an entrepreneur who appeared on Shark Tank for her startup Hatch Baby told Mashable she does believe that venture capital wants to make change. “The industry is interested in bringing underrepresented people to the table. Diversity does create more success. They’re going to do it because it leads to better outcomes.”
Why is this allowed?
Hey /biz/, which profession or industry gives you (relatively) the highest likelihood of being sent on foreign assignments/being an expat for several years?
I'd fucking sell one lung, one kidney and cut my right leg off to work in different countries for several years.
Where do I find such opportunities?
Is USO a safe bet? Am I going to get rekt? Thanks guys.
It's not a safe bet at all, and it has nothing to do with whether oil continues to fall.
USO will only be profitable if oil makes a significant move during the current month's contract. There is always price decay when the contract rolls over the next month. So USO will lose money in any period where:
-Oil goes down over any time frame
-Oil stays flat over any time period
-Oil goes up on a month-to-month basis by less than the difference between the prior month futures contract and the current month futures contract
USO is not "investing in oil". It's making a short term bet that oil will rise before the current futures contract expires.
>lost half of my savings in 1½ month
I personally try to time the market. I graduated in 2008 so I didn't save up money and invest in the stock market until the DOW was down to ~7,000 level. I moved it all to cash around a year ago when the DOW hit 15,000 since I thought stocks were overpriced and there would be a correction. I missed out on some gains, but I'll reinvest once we have another recession.
> that coworker that brings in fish and microwaves it during lunch stinking up the whole office

Close your door, faggot. I don't want to be part of your conversations.
We had someone microwave popcorn late one Friday after everyone left and I guess she set it for like 10 minutes because it was completely burned. Well, she didn't throw it out and just left it in there and went home. Come Monday, half the floor was inundated with the smell.
She was subsequently banned from using...

What is the best trading platform?
Should I buy a share in Apple?
Anybody here have experience selling through amazon?
How do you like Amazon's service? And do you manage to make a profit despite all their fees? How do you deal with the consumer tax/ income tax of it, are you a registered business?
>How do you like Amazon's service?
Somewhat, they'll phone you about some stuff when necessary and try to help keep you in the boundaries, but if you are locked out from selling a product and don't have full invoices you're fucked (even if bought 2nd hand)
> And do you manage to make a profit despite all their fees?
Yeah, but you've gotta factor that in before even buying items. If you go to the final stage of listing a product you see how much money you receive from the sale...

thanks for the response
>if you are locked out from selling a product and don't have full invoices
could you elaborate on this? I'm not quite sure what you mean by being locked out from selling a product
As to the taxes, does amazon simply give you the cash and have you deal with taxes, or do they subtract taxes and give you the tax free money?
Make sure you have at least a 30% margin because that's how much they take in fees and shipping shortfalls. Add another 20% if you're in a category with a higher percentage of thieves and serial returners. If you can still make a profit after that, hats off to you.
Anyone here considered setting up a porn site?
I was thinking more of a site where you cater to a niche. So for instance shemales or something. Start off by ripping videos from major sites, but also give the option for users to upload their own for when your site grows
Is it possible to make a living with music? Not a multi millionaire Coke party Justin bieber career but like owning a decent one story house in long beach with a corvette and a motorcycle with a garage?
I hear about a ton of no name rappers and shit like that pulling 200k out of their bank. Surely I can get at least entry level?
You have to be proactive ie don't just smoke weed in the studio.
Go to the club and befriend DJS. Get your music played and get shows. Get flyers.
Basically just do things outside your fucking house and you're in the top 20% that has a chance compared to the 80% of fluff music.
With music you are either a 1 in 1000 hit, or a starving artist who is enjoying life and following their dreams.
Doesn't sounds too bad to me.
Automation is killing all other careers. Its easier than ever to get exposure. why not go for it if you genuinely have something good to contribute.
just transferred my pension into a self invested personal pension. (UK).
this allows me to invest in anything, I've got a feeble £20,000.
where do you see the bottom of this market? I'm looking at mostly bluechips with some vanguard funds.
any thoughts or advice for a poorfag.
A friend suggested the following to me years ago:
Equal parts of VTI VEU VWO.
VTI is US heavy, so you add VEU to balance it out with non-US stocks. After you add that in, you are heavy on developed economies, so you add VWO to balance things out a bit more.
I see you're using HL here.
I have a Legal and General FTSE All Share to track the UK stock market and a vanguard fund for the USA. Some others for other regions like Europe and Japan. Look at the Index funds on offer under the funds tab.
I also have a select few bluechips with strong dividend performance too.
And don't worry OP, we all start somewhere. I have less than half of what you and I'm adding £500 a month.
