Going off what lettuce said- proof of income in the US generally needs to be 3x rent + credit check. However, that isn't absolute. The people that use that method are commonly companies or "professional" landlords. If you can find someone off of Facebook marketplace, craigslist, or Zillow that is just renting their second home or a room you'll be better off.

A part time job in construction under the table would pay in cash. It's as easy as walking up to the site and asking if they're hiring. Confidence is important. I don't advocate for illegal stuff like this at your age, you're likely to be tried as an adult but won't have the capital for a good lawyer. A crime of moral turptitude would destroy a lot of your future.

Be careful about getting scammed and year leases.

I love Euphoria! Sam is able to very accurately present Gen Z transition into young adulthood with social media, drug culture, and regular old relationships.

However, they do romanticize drug abuse too much. And the drunk driving scene in episode 1 of season 2 was hella irresponsible.

it's when talking about these people that I remind myself of the bell curve in statistics. these people are like the anti-Ziq, NerdyAnarchist, TequilaWolf, etc. They've chosen to be the statistical bottom 1% that have chosen to break rather than build.

idk. breaks my heart that some human beings chose to actualize their latent potential into annoying nothing nonsense.

I think there is an important distinction between a factory and a workshop. If I'm following Moonlune correctly, a factory is often a large and specialized assembly line (read:fordism) that is just asking to need a power structure in place / to be corrupted by economics while a workshop is just a place where people make stuff. I just woke up so I'm having trouble articulating but I hope that helps.

I don't remember the exact wording but that is exactly what it was for. I wonder if the CO that wrote it down had a passing thought of how ridiculous it was.

I know! I remember reading that for decades in California Rastafarians were kept in Solitary for a refusal to cut their hair due to religious beliefs.

I like to ask questions that I have a ready answer for. This is because some people have trouble articulating thoughts without something to spring board off of. And if I ask a question, that they don't really understand, I can then say "like for example, I really enjoy doing x"

Here are some quick ones-

"What would you be doing for fun if money wasn't an issue?"

"Do you have any deal-breakers in new relationships?"

"Are you Ziq?"

But ultimately, I think one should remember that all of these should be ice breakers and not a check list. On a good date everything will flow naturally.

First dates are neat because you're simultaneously testing if this person is safe to be around, fun, if you have chemistry together, etc etc. I miss them, I haven't been on any in almost a year. Good luck.

Terraria is funny in that in order to progress, especially to get into hard mode, it's almost designed in such a way as to encourage the player to use walkthroughs.

I love it, the art is gorgeous and they helped bring a lot of exposure to yoyo'ing as a hobby.

Okay, I just wanted to articulate my thoughts :) I felt that your title implied that because the Nazis and Soviets collaborated, that they weren't ultimately responsible for taking down the Nazis.

(Also in the same vein, I thought my writing was relatively neutral, would you care to expand a bit on what made it sound harsh?)

Fishman is an awesome arc! I loved the expansion on the feud between fishmen and humans. A lot of fighting filler in this arc if I remember correctly.

It took me a year to get from the beginning to fishman arc and I'm hella impressed with your tenacity.

I've lived at and worked at a number of ski resorts in the rockies so I'm only familiar with that area. As a poor kid in the mountains I would hike up and ski down all the time, and that was a very common thing for many people to do.

Getting on the lift w/o paying is difficult. What you're proposing by hacking their systems is a felony in many states. I think social engineering is your best bet. I would

A) hike up with a six pack or 20 bucks, ski the backside, and find a bored lift op that looks on the level and ask if he'll let you on in exchange for the beer or the money.

B) find an employee (lift op, ski patrol, instructor, etc) and ask if they can hook you up with a friends and family pass. Nearly every mountain has a program where employees are given a couple of free tickets every season to give to friends and family. I would suggest befriending these people at bars or restaurants. Pay for their meal or something in exchange.

u/liftingdad has a good idea as well. You could hang out on the mountain and try to get a photo of someone's ticket and then tell the lift op it fell off when you were skiing earlier and ask him if he can scan the photo on your phone. If your brightness is all the way up, he should have no difficultly scanning it. Good luck.
