It pays really well for someone with my level of education and I get to work from home a lot. Working in the factory is the least /out/ experience you could have as a human tho. Miles and miles of robots and automated machines and people in bunny suits making chips.

Just people. People are weird and a lot of people aren’t driven to work remote.

I walk or bike around scaring females with my massive menacing presence last year an old hag fell over into a pile of boulders she got so scared when she saw me biking towards her

Last month an old crone got scared of me at the track I saw her taking video of me with her phone. The next day she stopped on the track and did the same thing as I passed by and glared at her, I haven't seen her since I scared the cunt off hopefully she gets raped or breaks her hip if she can't exercise

Do you feel bad when you have to slaughter
>>
>>2135683
It depends to be honest. I don’t have a slaughter facility on farm, so that I don’t have to deal with other’s animals once they buy them. I sell my females as seed stock to other farms, and some of the males if they are of quality shape and color. It is harder if it’s one of the billies that are super friendly and I know they are going to slaughter. I use sale barns if I have too many boys and that makes it a little easier because I can just drop them off and leave. I honestly feel worse when I have a kid die from getting sick it doesn’t happen often, but it just hits you in the feels.

Start a goat ranch that’s what I did. If you can’t afford land there is plenty of farms begging for people to lease them. This is a sample budget on how to get started. I don’t want to hear you complain or make excuses. You want a way out here it is. It doesn’t take as much equipment as cattle and easier to handle. Most people have a job as well and use goats as supplemental income.

Regrettably nothing /out/ related. I work as a diplomatic security for one of the Gulf state embassies. I really like it, since 90% of times I'm doing absolutely nothing other than shitposting, reading, watching movies and playing older vidya on my laptop. And those few times I do get out of embassy with someone, it's usually being with them in some nice place, eating good food and checking out qt female personal assistants.
Money could be better, hours but are still more than enough for my needs. Hours are good, but can suck bad when something big happens. If the current staff likes you, you can get offered to go with them to some other country when their rotation is up. It's good money, nice experience, but generally kinda taxing on you.

I used to be a charters assistant in Alaska, basically did all the field dressing when the client killed something, watched camp at night, would stay nearby campers in bear territory, clean shit up, flirt with cute tourist girls, got to use high end fishing gear and hunting equipment in my free time

Left to move to Missouri for my shitty ex wife and kids I only see around Christmas that act like it's torture to be away from mom for half a day, slave away in a soul crushing factory now but I'm a cunt hair away from just moving back to Alaska

You sound familiar but probably not.
I've worked at Intel Chandler and Global Fab8 in Malta NY and been to about 20 other places.
I'm now an Start-up engineer for a semiconductor OEM, I love it, the pay is damn good. I don't even have an associates degree but I make $140k-$160k per year.

Interesting stories out the ass too, mostly passed on from person to person but I've seen a house chilled water line that was probably 50cm in diameter flooding the subfab. I've seen the process section of a given tool combust because it was exposed to atmosphere before a plasma clean. Lost of stuff like that. I've worked at places people have lost body parts at, mostly just dropping stuff on a toe or finger. Hear all the stories about people getting fucked up by their machines. A guy got his face lit on fire with a RTA tool he took out of safety mode with the lid open to check some bulbs..... Stuff like that. Also people fuck in the floor and in the walls.
>>
>>2136402
Lol I am actually about to sell a goat to a Jew. I live in North Florida, so when people ask who eats goat meat (the average white American doesn’t) I tell them I sell to the people democrats are trying to replace us with.

That's awesome, I've only been in the industry a couple of years, hoping to do something similar, quit my PhD to come work in Chandler Intel.

Haven't seen too much safety stories but the amount of poop/peeing on the fab floor is much greater than most would think. There's a phantom pisser in the New Mexico fab that pisses in clean room gloves and then ties them up like water balloons before tossing them on top of tools. Lots of young contract workers doing drugs and having sex on the floor as well. A few guys taking naps in the crawl spaces too.

Got my BS in forestry in 90’s, never made a lot, but enough. Never have worked in doors full time. There’s always some office work and meetings and shit, but mostly out alone. Problem is any promotion is to management which is in doors... maybe in ten years when I’m 60

Anyone know what jobs I could get with insects/arachnids without going to college?
>>
>>2136845
Go to college if interested in hard science. No matter how well self taught you are they don’t care without the diploma
>>
>>2136709
Depends if you are going to own or lease land. Starting out I bought my goats from random farms across Alabama, Georgia and Florida. I wouldn’t spend more than $200 on a goat, and I was trying for $150
or less. So I spend just under $7k stocking with a full herd mostly 3 month doe kids and about 15 adults. fencing can vary a lot as well, but if you learn to run your own fence save thousands. Also my county agricultural extension pays for 75% of interior fencing.
> I bought 100 acres and a house built in 84, but the land had been a working farm since ‘65. I have spent about 450k on everything.
>>
>>2136919
Also I bought the land in 2017 for land prices
>>
>>2136844
I'm getting a degree in forestry too. can you tell me more specifically what you do?
>>
>>2136321
it's fairly easy to get a job with them, most professional hunters are actually hurting to find someone to help since it requires up to half a month in the woods

generally you'll do a shitty year with low pay then ask for a raise, if they don't wanna give it to you then you've got a years worth of experience to show to other professionals and if they don't like you then you can get a license to be a hunter yourself
you don't even need to hunt, you can just do shit like kayaking and guiding since Alaska doesn't really let tourists just wander out into the bush alone and they more or less are forced to pay someone to accompany them, it's not a bad deal really
>>
>>2136845
Go to college. It's useless and you won't learn anything you couldn't learn self-taught but they only care for the piece of paper saying you sit through lessons and took quizzes so go to college

I work security on a university campus so I guess im /out/ most of the time. In terms of stories theres a few, some kid a few months threw a mini fridge 3 stories down a stairwell almost killing somebody. A lot of dumb rich kids killing themselves.

I've never head if someone shitting in a tool but in Malta they found a desiccated shit under the RMF and just left it there. Most people who are disgruntled just don't work hard in my experience. They take long breaks, take a long time to set up to do work, take a long time to do work, skip steps they think they can get away with, don't do tedious tasks like database entries etc. Oh, also they steal if they can. Multiple contractors were removed from site for stealing shit from the cafe.

I was just in Chandler a month or so ago, CH8 is where I was upgrading a tool. With that much info and an in at the Intel Chandler site you could probably get a list of <50 people that I'm on.

Semiconductor is great if you can enjoy working on something for a while to finally get it working. All the success you have comes after an extended period of time and sometimes you have to stop and scrap everything you've been working on and try a different approach. If you are the type that needs to be right the first time, semiconductor will break you.
>>
>>2138377
>just dont work hard
yup that is accurate for most technicians and even process engineers i have worked with. esp when they get fucked with a bad raise(2-3%) or no promo.
>if you can enjoy working on something for a while to finally get it working
very true. pay is never worth it tho based on value provided to company/pay received. especially to be a manager over those POS tools. i can go into more detail if any anons still care to know more, been a semis PE for a few years

I'm a DJ for an outdoor wedding venue. It's not as cool as it sounds, I pretty much just talk to the couple and find out what they want to hear, if they have a dance or whatever then we plan and coordinate. Most of the time I just stand in the party hall next to my equipment and let the playlist go. sometimes I take requests. Best story I have is hitting it off with a groom one time with a similar taste in music as me, he smoked a joint with me and asked if I'd like to be a groomsman. So I got paid to party at that event, ended up fucking some older slampig that was part of one of their families, not sure.
