I'm getting ready to go back to school. These textbooks though... shit's expensive. I know you can pirate some of them, but what about the pay software? Are there legit keygens out there?

I need access to pearson mylabs plus for my course. I've done some preliminary searching but most links lead to survey bullshit. Maybe I'm not looking hard enough, but I'm afraid I might not find any legit keygens. If anyone has any protips I'm all ears.

Look for used copies online.

Go on subcirclejerks for pirating college texts and ask them

Buy your textbooks from Amazon India, they are 10% the listed price but reprinted on shitty quality paper (who cares). You need an Indian forwarding service, a PO box where they just wrap paper around it with your address and remail it to you.

Don't take shitty courses that make you use garbage proprietary online learning 'tutors'. Go to a real school like Stanford which prints free texts for students, and doesn't charge tuition if your parents combined income is under $125k.

I've been watching YouTube videos and reading lots online but I was wondering if anyone had any first hand experience doing this. I can't build anything huge only about 4-6 feet high I think that should reasonable.

A good way to invest is just follow Carl Icahn around. He's a robber baron so if he invests a stakehold in a corp he'll force them to spin off departments to make more money like he just did with Ebay forcing them to spin off Paypal http://www.shareholderssquaretable.com/

I remember someone saying on /lit/ that philosophers are the masters of logics the other day. Another person argued that knowing how to deal with logics facilitates critical thinking and therefore beneficial.

But how does one start with logics? I see there are many types of logic, so I am at a loss here.
If why I'm seeking this knowledge is important, then it is because I'm interested to find out more about critical thinking and reasoning. Where should I start?

Thanks and here are some shotguns for a wanky zombie apocalypse.

Sup /howto/, thought I would post this in Music first but that doesn't seem like the kind of place for learning instruments and all.

I have decided to spend my NEET time doing something worth while and I have always been into music so why not do that? I tried music early on as a kid but never stuck with it, I have a keyboard, drumset, guitar plus a bunch of other nick nacks. I have some basic books for drumming and guitar and a good bit of piano books from beginner to barely into intermediate shit but I don't have a huge amount of instructional material. I could get through everything in a month's time probably and be decently proficient.

So if you haven't inferred, I am looking for free shit. Preferably one big ass wall of text that covers metal, jazz and blues guitar. I am doing guitar first then I will take up drums after I am more into guitar. I would be greatly appreciative of drum shit too but right now I am looking for guitar mainly. I would like to master drums and be a good guitar player. Guitar I just want to play certain genre's and just be able to make solid work for my drums. I may take up piano/keyboard after I am well into drums and close to advanced with guitar to supplement my skillz.

I've tried the little tid bits here and there from a bunch of websites like freedrumlessons and youtube people and all that shit but it never teaches anything other than narrow focused things without any order or progression.

I'm not looking for places that have, "Hey check out this rudiment. Forget about the others this one is ballin."

Transcribing can teach you almost everything you need to perform really well, and the theory will speed up the process and offer you more than a pragmatic understanding of music. But the pragmatic understanding is usually where people don't spend enough time. Listen very actively, and listen to tons of music. Listen to your favorite recordings and know them well enough to execute all of it in your head. Singing can make you sure that you're achieving this. There are a few parts to the music you want to comprehend--phrasing, intonation, articulation, dynamics, and more generally cues and interplay. There are others I'm sure I've missed, and they are equally important.

You can't just half-ass your way through playing ideas, and you definitely DO NOT want to practice this way. It teaches mistakes. Your mind does not distinguish between correct playing and mistakes, it's more like mastering the probability of your mistakes. Slow things down until your execution is perfect, and you can be conscious of what you're playing, then turn up the metronome a tick. Never exceed your mind's ability to experience what you're playing. Slow down or practice something else if your mind tires. It's a rewarding way to practice and it prevents sloppiness which brings diminishing returns.

The strategy is to learn riffs and lines that interest you from artists that you like. Pause the track, write down the time. The more you can internalize, the more you train your brain to know how to play. Most modern music like what you listed is built on feel, and the theory and vocabulary is an expression of that. As you learn the vocabulary, you must absorb the feel so that later you can ask your brain for a feel and you get vocabulary. Make sense? The instrument doesn't exist.

It seems that some people learn very quickly without "chunking" or other short-term memory techniques.

Like they get taught something, and they learn it instantly. "Sharp-minded, or he's sharp".

Others, like me, take 3-4 times before it actually registers. Yesterday at boxing, the instructor was teaching us footwork and everyone else "got it" much quicker than me.


I've always had this problem and I'm wondering if it's just decades of mental laziness. I'm awful at comprehension and remembering what I read, when I copied stuff off the board I'd always have to look up again....I struggle with being taught or instructed..


So my questions are: Are there exercises to train short-term memory like lumosity, do they work? has anyone here had the same problem as me, and how have you dealt with being a bit slow, or is the whole situation just a genetic curse.

Basically you want to achieve an internalized understanding through whatever means necessary. Your mind has to keep up 100% with what's going on or you will not remember it and you will not intrinsically understand it.

Go fuck yourself. Models are not prostitutes. (Though some prostitutes may claim to be models) Do you have any idea the kind of shit this causes? Both of the awkward stupid kind, and genuinely dangerous kind?

This is why models have to bring bodyguards nowadays. That and human trafficking. So fact is, if you accidentally try to prostitute a model, their boyfriend is coming up to shank you, and claim payment.

I love nerf!

What blaster do you have? You can just look up "nerf X mod" and find anything you wanna know. Typically: Springers can benefit from a rebarrel, air restrictor removal, stronger spring, padding and better seal. Electric flywheel blasters like higher voltage, rewires, and better motors/flywheels. Airguns like a rebarrel and overpressure plug. Nerf is a really fun hobby, especially if you love tinkering and messing with all the little parts and mechanisms. Find a group around you, smoke some weed and play nerf, it's awesome. Facebook is very valuable for this.

usually you have reviews with your manager every 6 months or a year or so.

at the end of that review they should have explained how you're going etc, this is the time you ask them about getting a raise.

if you can get your hands on some KNO3 you can make sugar smoke grenades (heat up sugar and potassium nitrate in sauce pan over electric burner and pour into resealable monster energy drink container) before the liquid hardens add the pubes you shaved off with an electric razor (no extra moisture).

Comment Just wondering what kind of phone you think I should go for? Up for an upgrade and I'm not sure. Hopefully this fits into /howto/ since you can tell me how to live in a car for 6 months.

Looked at the new S6 specs and they've got no removable battery or SD, kind of what I bought the S3 for....

Looking for something long lasting battery, removable SD up to 64gb the least. Looks like a simple request in prospect and every phone is offering it but just wondering if anyone has a new phone just jumping out at them or if someone owns one that they think is a decent phone in this day and age. Considering again that I've had the slower version of everything for the last 2 years...

Thanks in advance for anyone giving me guidance

If I were in your position I would get the S5, only because it has an awesome ROM by i forget who. It's called MOAR or mother of all roms. The dev used to be on S3 until it took a shit and he upgraded so now the S5 is graced with his skill.

Whatever you get, I would flash a custom ROM on it.

the minimum account balance for forex accounts are typically six digits
if you find a place with no minimum, look them up because they are probably a scam

200 is no where near enough to invest in any real investment
set this idea aside until you have at least a spare $20000 to sink into this

if you're looking to learn, do fantasy trading. you use money that isnt real but you "invest" in stocks or currency crosses that are real. in doing this, you can gain experience in trading but without any of the losses that come with learning

if you're a math/compsci major try getting a job as a quant, ie real traders tell you what patterns to look for, you build programs that identify said patterns in the markets.

would be the best way for you to learn tbh, get a job. that and start paper trading in your spare time.
