How to buy a house by Molly Nobblebock - Fri, 21 Feb 2014 11:19:35 EST ID:ZL/dFca1 No.36157 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Both my parents died in the last year. My father owned land in a different state, he left my brother and I a house in the state we live in (but the house is wrecked beyond our capability to make it livable), and we're going to get some of his 401K money or something.

I'm a very lucky person. I have lived poor for most my life, so I want to make the best use of the money.

I don't care about the size of the house or how it looks, my only priorities are that it is not going to fall apart, and that it is mine. I just want a place to live, so I don't have to worry about things. I just want to work and get into college.

So how do you go about buying a house? How cheap do they come, and how expensive are they?

One of the big bonuses to having a home is for people who make enough money to get a tax deduction on the home. Essentially, you pay to live there, but you also save money on taxes. Owning a house is a bit crazy too, depending on the price. a $40k house is like spending over $100 a night to live there for a year. That's crazy. How long do you intend to live in a single area?not to mention all the other expenses which go into it. It's honestly cheaper for most people to rent.

>Essentially, you pay to live there, but you also save money on taxes.

You can write off your property taxes and interest, but that's usually only worth it during the beginning of your mortgage term when your interest payments are at their highest, unless you already itemize your deductions instead of taking the standard deduction. Even so, a deduction isn't the same as a credit, so the reduction in your income tax owed is only a fraction of the amount you pay in property taxes. If anything, you pay more far more taxes when you own a home when you factor property tax in there.

>Owning a house is a bit crazy too, depending on the price. a $40k house is like spending over $100 a night to live there for a year. That's crazy.

Yes, it would be crazy if you decided to pay it all off in just 12 months. You know most mortgages are payed off in more than a year, right? And if you own the home long enough to pay it off or you've got the cash saved up to just buy it outright, then there's no need to concern yourself over that at all. The house is yours, with no monthly payments to make, just yearly property tax and insurance. Why is that so crazy?

Make sure it's legit, no liens on the title, structurally sound, check with the county for back taxes owed, things like that. Talk to a few real estate brokers about the process, spend some time in the neighborhood, realize that this is probably where you'll be living for the rest of your life, and if it feels f'n good, go for it. Buy it. Owning your own home is the dream, nobody can take that away from you so long as you do the minimum upkeep, taxes, stuff like that. Throw a house-warming party, invite all your friends, family and most importantly your neighbors, you are going to have to be in the community with them no matter if you like them or not, so feed them some barbecue and beer and you'll have a bunch of friends on the block.
Good luck OP, it sounds like you're making the responsible decision on how to spend your money.

I have a company phone and I'm switching the sim card to an unlocked phone when I'm not in the office. I have a dual sim unlocked phone that I use for my private phone and company phone so I don't have to carry two.

I switch the company sim card back to the company phone during work hours because in the office I don't use my phone much and I suspect they're tracking my usage. I'm not paranoid. I know they track us. I just don't know how. I don't have any administrative app on my phone for that stuff. So I assume it's embedded in the OS (android).

I switch sims in the office so the company keylogger has some info to satisfy IT. I just assume that with office-hours data they won't suspect that I'm using it in a different, untrackable phone outside office hours.

I don't know if I'm explaining myself right, and maybe my presumption on how mobile keylogger work may be off the charts retarded. But one of my workers did the same thing and they locked her sim card. She ended up getting a new phone as a result. But she didn't switch sim cards as I do. She just left the sim card in her personal unlocked phone.

I don't do mischievous things on the company's dime. It's just a pain to carry two phones when it's unnecessary.

Anyone know how they may be tracking the phone? Some people have iOS and others android, so I suspect the software has to be compatible with both os's.

Alot of what information they have depends on what the phone company gives them as part of the billing statement.

It is plausible that they give they a full call log, and less plausible, but not unpossible(sic), that they give them a full data usage log. In the event of a data log, it would probably be along the lines of - 30k 08:00 7/11/2014 and not key by keystroke or information such as your post.

Based on the data they get, they will still know what you are up to, even after switching phones and they may be able to figure out that you are switching phones.

Beyond statements from the phone company, if you are using company wifi, then that will very likely be scooped up keystroke by keystroke, and companies will spoof certificates and other tricks to get the information.

All that being said, I have doubts that the company has an embedded logger in the phone's OS, but you could probably find out by doing some online checking of the phone vendor, but either way you are better off using the company phone for company things, and getting your own phone plan for your phone, and be very careful when using corporate wifi

Thanks for the info. I didn't think they only got the call logs and possibly data logs.

A different branch of the corporation has all the phones with an uninstallable tracking app and since my phone doesn't show that app installed I figured there's a hidden app or something in the OS.

They were complaining that people were using too much data. So I figure they're tracking the individuals or possible just the individuals with the tracking app in their phone.

Again, I have my own private phone for private stuff.

>moving this thread from engi

So I just moved into a new apartment and the backdoor is a outward opening door facing the street, it has 3 dead bolts but it is obvious someone has crow barred it open before not sure if it was police/fire dept or someone broke in, anyway I want to get some sturdy locks on the thing but I am having trouble finding any for outward opening doors

I tried something like this

but it won't fit on the door properly since the interior has a 4-5 inch molding I could drill into it but it would still be almost at the edge if connected to the door which would still be pretty easy to prey open since there would be less then a quarter inch of wood holding onto the bolt.

I was thinking the old fashioned chain door lock but with an outward opening door it seems like that would be easy to just cut.

tl;dr i need a outward opening door lock

Not really worried about a fire more worried about someone breaking into my house when I am not home, because I live about 5-10 mins from the ghetto in a big city, I have renters insurance at least so If I do get robbed I will get some money but I would rather not get robbed, gonna talk to maintenance on Monday to see what I can do about having the door switched but the frame on the inside would have to be removed probably.

Btw how would they get injured by the outward opening door? it opens onto a patio its not the front door.

Outwards facing doors are for communal/office spaces.
Inwards facing doors are for living spaces.

There's a whole slew of reasons why both are bad for different reasons.
But essentially one's for the people insides safety.
The other is for everyone outside safety.

And since a house is unlikely to be packed full of people it makes more sense to have the door open inwards to avoid the door being blown open by the pressure and heat caused by a fire. Which can and has caused many unnecessary spreading of fires and many eyebrows and lives to be lost.
Whereas an outwards facing door is to let a lot of people get out of a contained area quickly in case of fire.

If all you're worried about is having your placed ransacked then a door will not stop a determined thief. It will however slow them down.

>online gambling

Math can predict things nicely in a perfect world, but it can't account for the human element. They want people to press their "luck". They lure you in with a few small winnings here and there, and then they start sapping money from you until you realize that you've been had and finally quit in shame, but by then it's too late. All of this matched bonus and frequent player points crap is just icing on the cake to entice you to stay and press your luck just a little bit longer. They have all your information, so if you try it again later they'll just keep robbing you blind without letting you win anything more. Sadly, a lot of people are gullible as shit and fall for it, and I'll bet some of these marks are even math nerds who haven't learned enough human nature or themselves. They don't understand how vulnerable they are.

Put your math degree to use at a real job and just play for fun, where the game is still honest.

Any card that you have to pay a flat fee per month stay away from, even if the APR is low. You want your credit card to pay YOU not the other way around.
He has a good idea, discover is a great company if you have a good credit history. And a credit card is the best/fastest way to build/ re-build your credit. Ideally you should have three to four cards and around 10,000$ worth of credit, BUT NEVER UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE use more than 30% of your credit. Because your credit score will tank and then you wont be able to get any decent loans for houses or cars. Most importantly always pay off your credit card as fast as you can. Treat it like a direct line to your bank account, or you will find the credit card company's dick so far up your ass that you will be spewing cum from your mouth.
If you have any real questions just look around for financial planning offices, they will be super help full and generally the first visit is free.

Yeah if you use them incorrectly, but if you show you are smart with your money and have a good credit score you can get loans with super low interest rates. You only become there slave if you fail to plan, otherwise you can make the system your bitch. Oh and im glad that the central bank in my country's economy doesn't have a negative interest rate.

Except if you buy parts to make a computer from newegg, you can't really barter the price of the parts. As long as you have the money to buy the parts, you just put it on your card to build your rating. Then you get a bill and pay them back exactly (no interest or anything more than what you would have spent) what your computer cost.

But if you can hook your buddy up with an ounce in return for him building one for you, you might as well do that.

Also, yeah, cash is great in certain situations (buying a car, buying a pack of gum, etc) but there are times when it's better to have the credit score. If you can get by without one, that's fine, but other people do fine with needing one and not being in debt.

I have a credit union card, and I recommend credit unions because low ass rates and massive credit improvement upon payback

Let's think of some simple ways to earn a bit of extra money on the side.

I think I might start selling animal skulls on ebay, saw a set of 3 common bird skulls go for £20 on ebay and a reptile skull go for £15 and I bet I can find a whole load of skulls if I go on a walk, worst case scenario is I have to bag up a head and rot the flesh off or something. Doesn't really sound like a lot of hard work at all.

Post your ideas.

Piece of advice, keep coming up with ideas, eventually you'll get a golden goose out of nowhere

If you're friends with a local store that ships a lot of stuff, you can ask them to ship stuff for you.

But for the most part, the buyer pays shipping. Free shipping is only for people who are trying to drum up business or people who ship out a ton of stuff. has some links and info to get you started.

Also, hollowing out books doesn't sound like a bad idea. It's a lot of work at first, but if you have the time and are willing to invest in tools, you can get them done faster and faster.

I looked on that Etsy site, and a lot of people are already doing it. Some as cheap as 5 dollars. I guess you could still try amazon or craigslist. Thanks for the link, mang

Yeah, etsy is fairly popular for stuff like that. A 5 dollar one probably isn't going to be large or well done though, so keep that in mind when you price your own books.

Selling locally allows you to price your stuff relative to your location but you reach a much, much, much, much smaller "target audience" and may actually make you less money. Having a combination of online and local stuff is usually the best way to go.

Oh, and if you do sell stuff locally, get business cards with a link to your online shop. You can either throw them in with your books or hand them out to people who are interested.

I was thinking, maybe if I throw a flask in there I can raise the price and also set myself apart. A book is like the perfect place to hide alcohol, lol. Just need to find a place that sells them cheap. And the business cards are a good idea.

I couldn't find a selfhelp board so I guess this is it... by Wesley Pittridge - Thu, 12 Jun 2014 20:13:32 EST ID:F2aJBZPv No.36590 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

So I started researching recently on how to think on my feet, only to come to the conclusion that thinking on my feet isn't my problem, I can think on my feet. I mean when I started researching I found out that people who can't think on their feet get that rabbit in the head lights look when you ask them what they think of a particular situation. I'm not like that.

My problem isn't thinking on my feet, my problem is strategizing. When faced with a big all encompassing problem, what can I do to improvise a meaningful strategy that will work?

So for example, I play videogames, but it takes me a long time to get decent at anyone game because for me it's literally trial and error until I figure out what works. That's why I don't play a lot of videogames. Now my friend, on the other hand, can play most games on the first go and do so decently. Obviously he stumbles at first but develops a strategy pretty fast.

And it's not just this, in school when we had gym class and we'd start playing a new sport, I always had trouble getting in the right positions or getting into a position where you could either start or be part of a good play. On the other hand, some of the other students would be able to pick up on the right strategies to use almost instantly, and it's not because they were experienced, because this would be the case in made up games or games no one ever gets a chance to practice on like net ball.

So yeah, does anyone have any good tips on strategizing on your feet effectively and being able to improvise solutions to complex and general problems? I feel like I'm really lacking in this and I'd really like to improve, especially if I want to get a management role in my field of work in the future (engineering).

/qq/ would probably be better, but you know the basics already. Stumble at first, but develop a strategy. And there'll probably be a better strategy, so don't be afraid to develop a new one.

It might help to look at strategies as if they were systems or puzzles.

Do you have a specific thing you want to make a strategy for?

This guy.
You think he's strategising the videogames and not adapting because if youve played enough videogames you pick up little things that happen in all games, play more videogames and youll learn how to play all games better. Be pro, fag.

Top down or bottom up.

Basically for any given situation there will be thousands if not millions of legitimate solutions. However you need just one to work.

So you can either Go from the top down.
Take all the individual concepts that make it work and figure out which one is causing the issue.
Or you can go from the bottom up.
Which is to basically start at the most likely causes (Ie: a computer not being plugged in) and then work backwards from there.

Both have there merits and demerits and both require trail and error.

Let's take that new sport you're playing.
Top down method would be to:
recognise the positions, Mainly you have frontal offence, mid offence, mid defence and back defence.
