The reason why that happens is because these new windows are almost airtight, if you have no air conditioning or do not open your windows from time to time for air/heat/humidity exchange this may happen if you heat your apartment like a mad old couple.

Anyways, we arrived to some fat and i mean barely can walk fat ass bitch apt.

I had to kick in a drop one time and I somehow lost my shovel. I don't know. I was pretty high.

So I grabbed a claw hammer and hacked a 150 foot trench like a fucking meth head murdering someone.

A week later my boss shows me a picture the customer took off me raising the hammer over my head like the statue of liberty and another picture dated that day of the dead grass stripe from the ped to the ground block.

Worked for Comcast years ago. Hurricane Isabel is ripping through East coast. Massive blackouts occur in Maryland. The neighborhoods that are out are fucking up the rest of the plant for other neighborhoods that do have power. The solution? Install generators on power poles to "patch" powered cable equipment through to other areas. Every hour drive, raise bucket, gas up generator drive to next etc etc.

Dispatch tells me that neighborhood I just gassed up is offline. Mfw nignogs climbed the utility pole in a hurricane, installed a surge protector and ran extension cords through windows.

wew lad
>by the definition of average, half the fucking population is below that
That would be the definition of the median. "Average" usually refers to the mean. (Of course IQ is designed to result in a bell curve so mean and median have the same value in that case but that doesn't make your statement less wrong)

That's the thing that nobody ever considers when they say shit like "there are enough empty houses in the US for every homeless person".
Those people aren't homeless because they can't find a place to live, they are homeless because they are unhouseable. It's been shown time and time again that if you give them a place to live on their own, they will destroy the place. Human shit everywhere, needles, trash, etc. They're mentally ill, and need to be in a mental institution where they will be cared for, not just provided with gibs.

There are decent people who are section 8 recipients, but the reality is that you run a massive risk of getting one of the many shitbags who will destroy your property and stick you with the bill.

the author of dilbert comics suggested a theory that most people act as idiots in certain situations so the perceived percentage of idiots may be much higher which would contradict the definition of IQ. that said, most people (certainly much more than 50%) believe that they are above average (smarter/better/prettier etc).
>>
>>1626325
Most people probably are above average in at least one metric, even qualitative ones.
For example, I know I'm above average height and I earn above average income, but those are hard numbers. I'm probably above average intelligence, based on my accomplishments and test scores, but I could also be a savant and just really obsessive.

People tend to overestimate themselves when it comes to qualitative attributes. It seems like everyone says they're smarter than average (but not book smarts, like common sense tee hee), more likeable than average, just overall "better". Honestly, that confidence can often result in success and opportunity on its own.

On a side note, I think it would be eye opening to see how many people you interact with in daily life are in the 80s and 70s IQ range.

Because those people saw their parents be lazy and get high instead of going to work and decided to be just as lazy.

It’s so easy for an able bodied person who isn’t completely retarded to make $40k+ a year by their early-mid 20s as long as they are willing to work. Sure, they won’t be offered a $150k/yr job at their father’s law firm the day they graduate college, but there’s no excuse for being on food stamps your entire life if you are physically able to show up to a job.

Listen, this is America, there’s a million and one opportunities out there. I came from a blue collar ass town with a single family household. I know tons of people who go from immigrants with nothing but a suitcase to upper class US citizens because they are willing to work weekends and a second job. I also know a ton of people who grew up in wealthy families and will never have to worry about money even though they’re lazy fuck ups. Life isn’t always fair. If you lost a leg in Iraq fighting in a US uniform, I’ll gladly pay taxes to help you out. But I have no sympathy for able bodied people who bitch and moan their whole life about how they got dealt a shitty hand so they deserve everything for free.

It's true that the poorest people tend to stay poor, but at that point you've got a whole host of compounding issues - idiot parents, bad genetics, limited opportunity, lack of education.
It's a total myth that low-income people that aren't morons can't make something better of themselves. Intragenerational income mobility is relatively high if you eliminate the bottom quintile.
https://www.pewtrusts.org/en/research-and-analysis/reports/0001/01/01/us-intragenerational-economic-mobility-from-1984-to-2004
>In the last 20 years, the probability that an individual would leave the bottom quintile was 30 percentage points higher for those with more than a high school diploma compared to those who never graduated, making education the most significant driver of upward intragenerational mobility.
>Working more hours has also drives upward intragenerational economic mobility. Between 1994 and 2004, working an additional 1,000 hours over the course of a year increased the probability an individual would leave the bottom quintile by 12.5 percentage points; the probability was just five percentage points in the previous 10-year period.

That’s ridiculous, same with the Harvard admissions making it more difficult for Asians to get in and basically all other colleges letting unqualified brown people in to their schools. I had a half-Mexican friend from HS who got into an engineering program he wasn’t smart enough for because of his skin color, even though he was born in the US and grew up in a $800k house with a Porsche in the garage.

It’s almost the same as the shit that crashed the economy- giving loans to unqualified people because of white guilt. One day it will all come back to fuck us over, it’s not good that we’re giving priority to people who are less qualified.

We need a couple more Trump Supreme Court Justices and they need to come down on this shit.

>>The average IQ is what the average of IQ is defined at
That's not how IQ tests work in practice. They're not recalibrated for every demographic group. They're calibrated so that 100 is about the average for large, mostly-white places like the US as a whole. And they're not recalibrated every year, so it can be meaningful to say that average IQ can change over time. This results in different demographics and different places having substantially different average IQ scores. The score for mental retardation was lowered because one major demographic group in the US averages about 85.

And that's entirely reasonable. There's no need to lock more people up because they are "mentally ill" all the while not providing any diagnosis or treatment for them. You are locking them up solely for behaviors you don't like but aren't even criminal! That's some authoritarian fascist level shit that guy you are responding to is advocating.

At the same time though, it's not right that the homeless lead such shitty horrible lives. They would almost certainly have a higher quality of life in asylums than on the street. But theres not a just way to keep them there unless you have a trial for every one and get them declared incompetent and made wards of the state

Well they need to fuck off and get off the streets somehow. They stab too many normies, they shit all over the place, and damage property. These are all crimes and should put them in prison. Except shitting and loitering and being fucking crazy and homeless arent actually crimes anymore?

Then arrest people if they commit crimes. You arguably have more liberty in jail than you do in an asylum, at least assuming your behavior is good for the time period you're incarcerated. In an asylum you are assumed a danger to yourself or others and so you're locked in a room with nothing. It's basically 24/7 solitary with no stimuli. That is torture. It might be okay for short stints of 2-3 days max but not months or years on end. Jails will at least give you other inmates to talk with, TVs, exercise equipment, books, maybe even a job, all assuming good behavior of course.
>>
>>1626714
And also, you have no bodily autonomy is an asylum. You don't get the option to refuse drugs or procedure. You are committed against your will. You have no rights. There is nothing okay about this system. It doesn't work for the legitimately mentally ill and it won't work for people who are just homeless and don't have any illness at all.

Have you?

I've worked on cable TV at halfway houses. They're all crazy, I've watched them drop trou and shit on the sidewalk in the middle of a nice commercial district. I've listened to them talk crazy talk. I've endured their insults for existing in their eye sight. I've watched them beat the shit out of each other for standing on the wrong corner.

This is all stuff I have actually seen. So yes, I do have some good idea. They are a health hazard and it's not okay for them to shit up streets, buildings and go around stabbing people and screaming at random passersby.

>Good thing St Ronnie closed all the asylums because a couple were bad. Trickle down! Freedom of speech! Patriotism!

He for the Democratic Party Talking Point meme.

Asylums, mental instittuions and hospital rubber rooms were slowly being shuttered from the 1950s onward. The ACLU, cost cutting politicians, city managers, drug epidemics, health care "reform" and the prison industrial complex are all responsible.

Ronnie get's the blame, but of course no one came up with a good alternative solution - for going on what, 40 years now? Asylums are necessary.

Why didn't Obama wave his magic wand and bring them back instead of working to destroy our sovereignty for United Nations good boy points?

That’s because they have been up high on speedballs for a week straight.

There’s a big difference between the mentally ill, the drug addicts, and the dindus who are just too lazy to work.

I was friends with a dude a few years back who was a homeless crackhead. Dude got clean, got a job, I had him over at my house for thanksgiving dinner. Within 6mos he was making enough money to get out of a halfway house and find his own apartment. Then he got upset over some petty shit and went out and started getting high. You can give these people chances to get out of those situations for the first month or two and teach them how to fish, but you can’t support them their entire lives.

>>1626723
The halfway houses full of dudes straight out of prison and detox are different from mental health facilities.

These arent jusy people that dont have s home or anywhere to go. They are fucking crazy.

Think about yourself. If you lost your job, you would get a new one, if you couldn't find one, youd go stay with a friend or relative until you got back in your feet, and apply for neet bucks and housing assistance and you would never be homeless.

These people are fucking crazy. You might have a conversation with them, but it's in their broken voice that they aren't normal. They might fly straight for a few weeks but they are going to crash quickly.

https://www.iheart.com/content/2018-10-16-rats-and-trash-fuel-typhus-outbreak-in-los-angeles-skid-row/

I dont have a good solution either. They are virtually all petty criminals for loitering, litter, indecent exposure and a bunch of shot that shouldn't be crimes. And locking them up forever is no good. Mostly I just dont want them in the street interacting with normal people that are just trying to exist in the city without catching a medieval disease and not get stabbed.

I honestly wonder about this too. Like your chances will be worse if you were born to a crack whore in the hood, but my views on this stuff change as I get older.

I used to think that the nog attitude it just because they grew up in the hood. But as time goes by I think that the shitty hood is a product of the nog attitude. You could send those people to the suburbs and give them a bank account with unlimited funds and it would quickly turn to hell. And you could take their children and stick them with good parents in a nice neighborhood and they would do much better but not as well as the good parents’ own children. There was a screengrab that pops up of some longposts from some anon who did work in Africa. They gave the people everything they needed for a sustainable healthy and well fed community and they taught them exactly what to do. Anon comes back a year later and finds the Africans traded their seeds and fertilizer for worthless trinkets they think are magic. You can teach a man to fish, but if he trades his only fishing rod for some beads, the man deserves to starve.

But nobody wants to even get into this discussion if you suggest that these peoples’ lives are shitty because of reasons that can’t be fixed by handouts from Dems.

Poor environments are very hard to get out of.

>I used to think that the nog attitude it just because they grew up in the hood. But as time goes by I think that the shitty hood is a product of the nog attitude

Its quite literally both, and its not exclusive to niggers.
Same goes for the white trailer trash who live off of the government wont dont work.

You grow up seeing poor decision making, its normal to you. You make the same mistakes your parents did because you dont know any better.
A lot of times those decisions have lasting effects that make life even more difficult. Easy to just give up and live in poverty.

Sex drugs and fighting are cool, education is bad.
That kid you had at 16 because you didnt have sex education, or that tattoo on your neck or hand, or that felony you got from assaulting someone. Things that are commonplace where you grew up, things you didnt truly understand the long term consequences of make living an honest life HARD.

And with that said, there are still a lot of people who grew up in those bad situations and moved on up.
Education, and trying to turn around that "nog" attitude is the only way things will ever get better.

Thats what a lot of those social programs exist for, in conjunction with those handouts.
Its not about the drug addict parents who are too far gone, its about the kid who abstains and moves onto being a functioning part of society.

Stopping the handouts wont fix the people who are too far gone, itll make them worse criminals. All itll really do is take away any chance of those unfortunate kids who have a chance to get away from it all.

A great step in the right direction would be overhauling the welfare system.

>give someone $1000 a month in welfare if they make very little money.
>if they get a slightly better job (which still isnt really enough to live on) they get that $1000 of welfare taken away.
A big net loss in their income, one that requires a mid level job making ok money to hurdle. Jobs that require hard work to get to, and when you take that big of a hit in your income which could takes years to rebound from, welfare encourages people to be lazy.

A universal basic income is really what we need.
>stop welfare, give every citizen $1000 a month, no strings attached (including you and me)
>people who had qualified for welfare before are now getting the same assistance money, but are in no danger of losing it if they work more or get a higher paying job
>money becomes disposable cash for a lot of people, goes directly back into your local economy, which helps create more jobs, which lessens the tax burden of the program when there are more sales taxes and more tax paying workers popping up

Sure, if you want to live on that money alone and not work like a lazy nigger then you can. But it helps shift the idea of "being held down" to "being helped out", which a shift in ideology for the poor is what needs to happen.

And trust me, I worked at Kmart in a bad area. People know exactly how many hours they could work before their benefits were cut. They were like finance majors when it came to getting their benefits, since they all had a bunch of kids.

I pity them, but I also know they would have worked themselves to death if they could have gotten over that hump. But not everyone is cut out for working construction like this board seems to think.

The existing welfare program already bleeds money and would pay for the brunt of it.

>I might as well aim to stay in a lower income bracket because it would probably save me another $1k/mo in taxes.

This ideology is just as bad as being a lazy fucking nigger who wont work.
A slight tax increase to create more jobs, and help your neighbors?

Good luck. I would rather they revamp welfare without giving more out. Kick the people off who don’t actually need it, stop incentivizing people to become single mothers living in squalor. Give them incentives to get a job, like include trade schools or community colleges into the welfare program.
>>

The problem is that when people are just given something that they don't work for it fucks them up in the long run. Anon is right, it doesn't matter what color you are. It's the same for blacks in the inner city, whites in trailer parks, or Indians on reservations. The REAL problem is that politically it looks good to "help people," and if you expect them to actually work for what they're given then you're seen as an uncaring asshole.

>The reason why that happens is because these new windows are almost airtight
Fun fact - in communist Poland (probably rest of the soviet block too) architects designing commie blocks took into account that wooden windows arent 100% air tight, and they served as minimal ventilation. When plastic windows (and modern heat isolation) started to get popular, the administrations of such establishments often had to make small ventilation chafts, usually under the windows. Have those in one of my apartments.

In some way you are an exception. You have a wealthy dad to fall back on.

Reality is those kids that went to college will likely pass you in earning in their mid 30's. Beyond that they will have a much more flexible work schedule and overall a more satisfying social life and higher social status. It is a fact.

Something like needing to post notice of the abandoned property to a newspaper and give a few weeks for it.

Then he could have even had an auction for it

Might need to get a judge to sign off that the property was abandoned and he hasnt been able to contact tenant in x days and havent received rental in longer.

He could have just decided the auction wasnt worth that hassle and you werent aware of the other proceedings

This but unironically. High corporate taxes hurt social mobility and protect established mega Corps. They're a barrier to entry against people who don't own politicians who wrote tax loopholes only you would qualify for in your industry. They're also economically terrible for investment across the board.

And nobody really believes the current social spending scheme helps your fellow man. Charity does, though

Many LED room lights are badly made, low pulse rate, very high intensity light. This confuses your eyes, doesn't look bright but the pulses are powerful enough to cause damage. Also poor filtering of spectrum. So yes, you shouldn't stare at any light but LEDs can be extra super bad.

For small town USA a HS diploma and an application to the poco. When interviewing look clean, thin, fit, and know the basics of how circuits work.

It's low pay, high labor, outdoor, rain-or-shine work so has a lot of turn over. Add to that the stigma of zappy death and applicates become sparse.

Women do it all the time.

Probably not that many. It occurred to me once I started working with mostly F100 executives that I was dealing with a high iq crowd. Working backwards, realized the front line folks were at minimum average to have gotten jobs at F100 in the first place.
You want average and below IQ, go to Walmart and talk to people. Or the DMV.

>Price floor for essentials will rise

For the most part: no it won't.

The the market for essentials will see little to none of that extra money because everybody is buying them already. Otherwise that stuff wouldn't be essential.

A lot of people tried to argue in the same way in Germany. Guess what. Minimum wage came and nothing of the anticipated bad stuff happened. For the lower income people it was the single most important political decision of the last 20 years though. Also a lot of people had fear of loosing a lot of jobs but i think a job which doesn't provide enough to live on is worthless for the society. In the end society has to pay that way or another.

This 1000$ a month thing isn't that far off from reality. We have cities where 20-25% are living of the welfare system (e.g. Berlin) which is basically getting your rent etc. payed and about 500$ to spend. It's probably around 1200-1500$ each month depending on where you live.

Oh you ground plebs just don't get it. That is why you are ground level plebs.
Lazy niggers in nearly condemned housing are a gold mine for land lords if you know what you are doing. Way more profitable that actual middle class whitey 9to5 cubicle white picket fence family cuck who pay their bills always on time.

I work for a land lord and make lease paperwork and collect rents from welfare niggers in several of our run down houses, where nobody but dark gutter rats sets a foot ever

Doesn't make sense to you, does it?
Well it's really easy.
So let's you have a decent apartment in normal house that rents normally for $500 a month. That is what you can rent it for at most, because whitey won't pay more than that
You can have say 10 of such apartments that fit in a house because if they were smaller you would have to rent them for less obviously.
So normal market prices, small margins for extra profits.

Enter the gibs niggers.

You buy a run down derelict junkie squatter infested apartment building that is ready to crumble down at any moment and pay next to nothing for it because it is in the ghetto, it is a hell hole and no decent white cuck goy will want to live there.
So you move in the lazy penniless gibs niggers into these tiny apartments, and since they are so small you can have like 40 of them in one building, and then charge $1000 a pop in rent.
You see, in here (and most 1st world countries) welfare leeches can apply for housing gibs and it works like this: state pays 80% of the rent and the gibs nigger pays the rest. Of course nigger has no money so he won't pay you anything, but despite that you are now making $800 in rent an apartment that is worth barely $50. That all times fifty for the whole building, which you bought for next to nothing, so you will return your investment in months basically.
Compare that that to the building where your profit is 10 * $500 and you bought it for normal market price and your investment return is 10 years.

I had the city come and mark everything once because I wanted to know where a sewer line was,. They marked the gas line where it was not at, and the water line where it also was not, they also marked a bunch of other shit that is not even available bin my area and after all that they did not mark the sewer line.

But fuck it I took pictures and had the back how guy show up, we did not hit anything and we found the sewer line. Ok we hit that but oh well I was moving it anyways.

Turns out service line markers are notorious for this retarded shit which is probably why they want you far away from them and there property

They need discipline. I know what pasta you're talking about. There was ONE entrepreneurial kid who saved up money to buy ingredients and bake bread (?) and then sell it, but one of the village elders with 64 wives and 3100 children came by and stole all the shit so he and his filthy offspring could eat. In the case of that particular African village, it was definitely a backwards culture of perpetuating stupidity and ignorance that confined those losers to their impoverished lifestyles.

Some of the absolute most racist fucking dickheads I ever met were natives in Mexico. Just straight up Jim Crow era hateful motherfuckers. If you were white they would bend over backward to suck your dick but if you were black or Asian? Man, they would stick their finger up their ass and dip it in your food just cause they could. The only other place I ever met anyone that foul was in Alabama. In both places, these fuckers wore their racism on their sleeves like they were in the Hilter Youth and it was their armband.

>$20k back in tax returns
>She actually thinks that it is money she is owed.
That's literally what a tax return is. If you pay more tax over the year than you owe (via an excessive payroll deduction, say), you file a form to work out how much extra the government has collected from you, and should now RETURN to you. Functionally, this is an interest-free loan to the government on your part, and if you have something productive to do with the money, you would be better off with no deductions, instead just paying everything in a lump sum.
