What up /howto/. So I have a job, checking and savings account and all that. But what else can I do to assist in the cash flow? Stocks? Funds? I'm pretty illiterate on the finer points of these aspects of economics, so I don't even know what books I can or whatever to start making heads or tails of any of this.

In short, what makes (steady, regardless of amount) money if you want to sit on it for a while? Not looking for a get rich quick scheme, nor do I expect to have millions in a meager few years.

Pretty much this. Bank interest rates are a joke, but if you play with stocks or e-currencies, you risk losing money.

Some treasury bonds have better interest rates, if you're willing to give up money now and get more money in the distant future.

I had a medium yield brokerage account with Chase for about 6 years, if I ever lost money it wasn't even $1,000. Though I did invest $15k initially and put more and more over time. In the end before I liquidated it all I had made $25k profit, with a total of $63k.

There is always an element of risk, you should invest it in supermarkets or stores you frequent. that way whenever you go into the store you can asess how your stocks are doing by how up-kept the store is and if it is unkempt then you can press your concearns at a shareholder conference "i went into blah store and it looks run down, this makes me uncertain of my investment" etc.

I know there's no easy, risk-free way to make money, hence why I mentioned stocks in the OP.

Thanks for the answers though, guys, much appreciated and it looks like investments and stocks are the way to go.

Plan for your future, little by little. Get a book on Personal Financial Management.

1.Pay off consumer debt, make all monthly payments on time, keep a budget spreadsheet (find out how that is done).
2.Build a 3-6month emergency fund and keep it in interest bearing account.
3.401K, IRA, you can get those in tax deferred or pay the tax upfront. anything your work has which may include matching funds. Many places will match the first few % you contribute if you join their retirement program. That = free money! Work on maximizing you contribution to what is legal. (if you go over than look at step 6)
4.Own rather than rent your domicile. Mort interest is tax ded & the money you would put in rent goes into home equity.
5. Check your credit score each year with the big 3 credit agencies, they make a lot of mistakes on their info, plus you may see id theft before it gets out of hand.
6. Once you have these down you can look into investing. Your 401K &/or IRA use some of these techniques. But if you have maximized it is now time for you to invest in another way.

Investing requires more analysis. If you are young you can risk more, if you are old you may be looking to live off the earnings, withdrawing your investments. In which case you don't want to have risky investments. Higher risk means potential for greater gains but losses as well. If you are young you can take those. If you have retired you may not want to risk as much but still want to keep growth up above inflation. a more conservative approach is needed.

If you want a jumping off point, wiki the Rule of 72. It helps put things in perspective.

Personally I put this before #1; contribute to a charitable cause you deem as worthy. Karma has a strange way of working. You gotta water the root if you want to eat the fruit!

So I work in a stockroom and have earplugs in like 12 hours a day.
Usually listen to music but I've been thinking of trying to use that free thought time to learning things and stuff.

I don't have much to say as far as sources for lectures.

For the love of god, if your job requires you to wear earplugs, wear them.

You can probably get earbuds with an equivalent or greater NRR rating, don't just get any old earbuds.

Definitely redeem the time if you can but not at the expense of safety. A good audiologist should be able to get you OSHA compliant ear buds. Don't get distracted with a fork lift tho. TTC is an exelent resource, Nightengale-Connant have some great series. Audio you can miss segments, then go back and re-listen with focused attention. You will retain more if you listen to the same one more than once. The problem with some learning programs is they ask you to take an action, or do something which you may not be able to do while you are working. Non-fiction audio books, history is great, and of course things like language/vocab programs. There are pay sites, p2p, and of course the library has stuff depending on your local.

Well I figure it's worth a shot. Does anyone here know how I can buy and sell and make a few dollars profit. I don't have a job right now and really want to find a way to make cash freelance. I live in a really small town so it looks like online sales is really going to be the only way to do it. Can I just buy stuff off craigslist/ the internet and see if it's selling for more on amazon and flip it? I read about people buying NES games in bulk and just selling the titles individually. I was thinking about buying my friends box full of NES games since I saw a lot of the titles he had on amazon. Any items this is really good for? Anyone here do anything like this?

About 15 years ago I found a good-sized patch of somniferum growing along side the Interstate near where I lived. Picked a bunch of ripe pods, let them dry, then shook out the seeds. Put the husks in a blender and made powder outta them (made like 2/3 cup) and poured it into a dark brown bottle full of Everclear (4/5 qyart) and put the bottle in a dark spot in a closet for 2 months. When it was ready I pureed a pound of fresh strawberries, strained out the seeds, then boiled that in a quart of distilled water for 20 minutes. When it was room temperature I poured it and the Everclear mixture into a wine bottle with a screw cap and put it in the fridge. Two shots over ice and byebye for 6 - 8 hours. Never made it again, I liked it a bit too much.

This is supposed to be a method of fermentation. A process that actually does something good to cannabis. It should taste less harsh and not more. whatsoever.
AFAIK farmentation is just like really slow drying.
Opening the container every now and then so the moisture can circulate and evaporate and the (harsh tasting) chlorophyll-molecules break apart (I'm no good in english but in chemistry).
Be careful! There is just a fine line between fermentation and real hazardous mold!

If your referring to curing your bud, yes it is most necessary. I wouldn't say the formerly referred to process is anything like curing. When you cure you have almost all the water out of the bud, and you also open the jar often so you can get rid of the Co2, preventing any type of mold.

How do /HOWTO/

I have a background in design, mainly Photoshop, Illustrator ad Indesign, and I have started making this book of sorts. It is quite a unique book I think, let me try and paint a picture for you guys briefly.

Each double page spread will mainly be digital art relating to a specific subject matter along with a short poem cleverly positioned within the artwork. The subject matter will be relevant to modern day society mainly and explore humanity, the world and our minds.

My question or questions are as follows:
  1. What would be best, an ebook, print or both?
  2. What would be the best way to get it published?
  3. Do you think there would be much of a market for such a thing?

I am attempting to design and build a garbage bin grow chamber. What I have worked out, and this is very preliminary, is that I will use one LED light, a cone of aluminum foil from the light that directly focuses light on the growbed at the bottom. I'm drilling one hole, in which I will put a small fan. That is concern number one: how strong of a fan would I need to force the stanky ass kush air from the garbage can to my window, approximately a meter and a half away? Should I maybe install a larger fan on the top?

Concern number two is the hydroponic grow bed. Now I'm rreeaally new to this, truly out of my element, but I think a small waterbed with a pump that just swirls the water around, alongside careful nutrient and ph monitoring should be enough, right? I'd of course have the roots and clay medium in a cup with ample drainage so it can absorb nutrients.

Will post designs later today, when they are complete.

AS FOR WHY THIS ISN'T IN /CROPS/, because it has more to do with general knowledge of craftsmanship than a question directly related to growing.

No exp using LED's, I usually go with CFLs.

You'd want an array of 6 medium-sized 20-something watters alternating color tempratures between 2700k and 6400k range ("warm white" and "cool white" respectively). Use socket splitters and socket-outlet adapters and you can get thee Y's on a single power-strip. BC you're using CFL's heat isn't as big an issue, they save energy, and you can get some serious lumen out of it if you make a simple reflector out of cardboard and printer paper. You can get your lumen output into the 20k range, and that's really good for CFLs, and if you're only growing like 1-4 plants that's plenty of light and it's like $30 for the full assembly.

Which brings me to my next point, don't use foil! Use white! Non-glossy white surfaces reflect more energy than shinny ones I guarantee you. This is not exactly intuitive. If you're still on about using foil then use the non-shinny side, but straight up printer paper would be the best color to reflect energy off of.

Never fucked with hydroponics, but an easier medium is to use coco-coir bricks and then mix hydroponic nutes with distilled water. Fox Farms has a trio pack exactly for this, and other companies make specific coco-coir nutes. Look 'em up. Be careful not to burn your plants tho!

Dude, if you're new to growing, just do this:

1- 10 Liters pot on the bottom
2- Mesh/grid at about 1/3 height of container. This is for SCROG, aka "using all your available surface for flowers".
3- 150 watts light or just a very good LED on top of container.
4- Fan for intake of air at about 1/2 height of container
5- Fan for air out at top of container. You can use a carbon filter to control smell.

How to use:

1- Put regular feminized seed (not auto!!) in glass of water for about 24 hours.
2- Put seed in pot full of premium growing soil (buy some, don't mix your own unless you absolutelly know what you're doing).
2- Add water
3- Wait until plant's height is above the grid. Bend the plant to go back under the mesh and wait for it to grow up above the mesh. Bend again. Google "SCROG METHOD" for details about this.
4- When grid is almost 2/3 filled by the plant, switch lights to flowering light cycle (12 hours on and 12 hours off).

Bucket, The bigger the better.

Water, clean

Sugar, For the alcohol percentage.

Flavouring, Apples for apple wine (Cider is a bit more complicated) Pears for pear wine etc. Potatoes for vodka (Requires distillation) molasses for rum (Also requires disillation)

Yeast. DO NOT USE bakers yeast. It will work, But the taste is awful and is likely to get infected. (Bakers yeast is intended to work at 40-50 degrees Celsius. Not the 20-30 degrees of alcohol brewing. In practice, It will be ineffective at growth, Decreasing the alcohol:sugar:time ratio. It will also have a lowered ability to fight off infections.)
Basically don't be lazy, Go to a brew shop or look up wyeastlab.com.
Yeast has a very pronounced effect on your drink. Pick it carefully.

Cleaning equipment, disinfecting solutions.

Presses for wine. Stills for spirits.

The only true way to know is to wait untill your brew stops producing gases/bubbles.
Once you're reached that stage you need to wait for it to go clear. Then bottle/barrel it.

This guy probably knows what he's doing. But if you just want to get drunk and don't care about taste, here's the lazy idiot-proof method:
  1. Buy a jug of full-sugar grape juice, some granulated sugar, and some packets of whatever yeast you can find. If you see turbo yeast in the store, try that instead of baker's yeast.
  2. Before you get excited, drink some of the grape juice in order to leave a generous few inches of air space at the top of the jug.
  3. Now get a measuring cup and add to it a little bit of warm water. Not hot, just body temperature or slightly warmer.
  4. Dissolve a little sugar in this warm water. Estimate a few pinches or a spoonful or something; it doesn't have to be much.
  5. Dump one packet of yeast into the sugar water, and wait.
  6. After 10-15 minutes, your yeast should be foamy and bubbly. When this happens, dump the contents of the measuring cup into the jug of grape juice.
  7. Don't shake the jug. Just unscrew the cap a bit so the CO2 can escape as fermentation occurs. Store it in a warm, dark place with some rags or a dish underneath to catch any juices that may overflow.
  8. After an hour, go back and look at the jug. If it's swelling up, loosen the cap a little more so the air can escape. You don't want this sticky mess to explode.

Now you wait. Two weeks is usually enough time for a basic winelike beverage to occur, but if you have the patience, by all means let it "age" for a few more weeks. You can drink it earlier, but it won't have much alcohol and the yeast will still be hard at work. Generally, you should leave it alone until the bubbles have mostly stopped and you can no longer hear it fizzing. If desired, pour the wine through a coffee filter or two to strain out the gunk. Drinking some dead yeast won't hurt you but it might detract from the taste.

I want to get into Vipassana meditation, I've read a little about it online.
Does anybody know how long I should do it daily? Are there any tips or other useful information anyone wants to share?

thanks in advance.

I did this last year and didn't get as noticable life changes as from doing LSD.

To each their own...maybe...

Daily 20 min meditation is awesome, though.

What are some thoughts about listening to music while meditating. Maybe classical pieces or ambient stuff... I feel like it could take the punch out of traditional meditation but I have trouble at this juncture staying focused and awake for long periods
