    Do you have a job?

    Are you currently working? Sure am. I am a church directory photographer - I travel to different churches in my area and take portraits of the members for their directory book. What do you like/dislike about your job? I dislike: - The odd hours, which make it difficult to plan time with friends or other appointments more than a week or so in advance. - Photographing pets. We're not set up for it at all, and putting a dog or cat up on my table is just asking for someone else's child to get an allergy attack when he sits up there after the pet. Also pet owners typically have unrealistic expectations for the photos, especially given the type of photography we do. I mean, c'mon. It's a portrait studio. For portraits of PEOPLE. - Constant pressure to keep sales numbers up. I am not the salesman; I work with another guy who sells the pictures. When we go through a rough spell (and all sales jobs do), my higher-ups ask me what I can do to get sales up. Fortunately my immediate boss understands the situation and tends to poke at my partner the salesman more than me, but it still grates on you after a while. I like: - Working in a different location almost every week. There are new people every fifteen minutes. It's great for meeting a lot of people and hearing some great stories. - Hearing "This is the best picture I've ever had!" at least once a day. For so many people, all they have for a photo of themselves is their drivers license - and we all know how those turn out. My job is to make people look good. Facebook pictures tend to document something (a vacation, new hairdo, fun outing with friends, got hammered at last night's party, etc) and are less personal, while my photography is a very personal thing. - Being able to touch people's lives in a lasting way, even if they don't remember me. I work in a lot of churches. A lot of churches have a lot of old people. A lot of old people die. I have had people tell me "You know, the doc says I won't make it another year... it's good to have this picture for my funeral!". Those pictures will be quite probably the longest-lasting memories their children and grandchildren will have. It's not me they remember, but it's something I had a large part in and that feels great. What previous jobs/careers have you had? I worked in food service and as a sound tech for a conference center for a couple years. Before that I did some odd janitorial work for the local shooting range. I've also brought in money through html coding and assembling gallery wrap (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gallery_wrap) canvases for a local photographer friend of mine. What job/career would you realistically like to have? I really enjoy my current career and will probably keep it for a while. It's got an excellent retirement program and the impact I'm able to make on people's lives is very fulfilling. And it pays the bills.

    An anniversary and some news.

    Hey everyone, I'm posting this here mostly as a therapeutic sort of thing. I'll get to the real part in just a sec. But first, I'd like to wish my RS-wife seksievilcow a very merry 5-year anniversary! We've managed to keep in touch over time, or else that'd be pretty creepy. And no, I don't call her "cow" anymore. *deep breath* One of the last things I did before going inactive on Sal's was get married. It was quite an ordeal - took over a year to get from "will you?" to "I do". And now I'm here, writing this. I came home from work to an empty house on December 2, 2011. Now, I'm not going to go into all the details of this - we're both human, we both made mistakes. I'm not going to try and tell you I was the perfect husband and I'm not going to rag on her as the wife from hell. That's not what this is about. It's about getting it out there because I feel like it's been bottled up for over a year. That said, it was definitely her that ended the relationship and not me. It came as a total shock at the time (though in ever-clearer hindsight, I can see the signs) and was absolutely devastating. Since then, I've been emotionally struggling with all kinds of questions. What should I do with my life now that my original plan has been cut off? Where should I live - in our old apartment in the same city she's living in, or should I move back to my hometown? Will I ever feel that way about another girl? Do I even want to feel that way again? Will another girl be able to love me, knowing that I've been through this already at such a young age? I'm almost done with all the legal things to make everything final (I owe her $0.06 as part of our settlement, but that's a story for another time). It's been really hard and taken longer than our marriage lasted to get it all done. It's also far less fun than planning a wedding. This is the first time I've talked online about this. I feel like I've been dishonest with many of my friends because when all this happened, I didn't put anything on facebook, nor did I call very many people to let them know. A few have figured it out, of course (removing all your wedding pictures and getting blocked by your wife does tend to raise an eyebrow or two), but the majority of my friends from our old workplace still believe I'm happily married and my wife just didn't want to come along to the last gathering. And for Pete's sake, it's been a freaking YEAR. Any advice on how to break it to the facebook crowd politely would be appreciated. It's not so much that I don't want them to know, it's that I don't know how to tell them. Anyway, that's what's going on with old wilt. Just in case you'd been wondering. I don't expect much that hasn't already been said from my close irl friends and family - just please respect that it's a sensitive issue if you choose to comment.

    1+1+1+1+1x0=5??

    The confusion from this problem stems from the author failing to clearly state it. He/she could have stated it as either (1+1+1+1+1+1)*0 or 1+1+1+1+1+(1*0) and removed all possible confusion. It's the same with writing a sentence; if I'm not clear on where punctuation goes, the thing takes on a whole new meaning. "What are we going to eat for lunch, Grandma?" without context could be taken as an innocent question to one's grandmother OR a morbid cannibalistic reference. Simply changing it to "Grandma, what are we going to eat for lunch?" removes all doubt (and coincidentally, makes it substantially less amusing). Of course, clarity would fail to achieve the desired effect -- which is causing discussions like this.

    If I Had $640M (Before Taxes), I Would...

    Pay off debts, drop a silly amount into savings and live off the interest. Not much would change, really. Maybe I'd eat out a little more :P Yep, I'm boring.

    Big 1337 question, I has one

    I don't think the answer to profitable online writing lies in Wizzley. I read your article, then it struck me what your problem is -- I've NEVER had a Wizzley article show up in my search results from Google. To be perfectly honest, the possible existence of a l33t version of this article is not going to matter one whit in terms of profit. I would suggest re-purposing the time you'd spend translating to write another article or two, then get your own blog that's not tied to Sal's or Wizzley. Not trying to be a downer, honest. I personally know exactly one person who's profited off what she's done online, and that's after ten years of bouncing around forums and becoming an expert in her field. To make any significant money, you'll pretty much need your own site. A blog-style site will probably serve you well until you find a niche - because let's face it, baby clothes for gamers isn't exactly in the interest sphere of 99% of the population. I do wish you the best of luck, Merch! Your writing is clear and concise; now you need to find a way to get it out there. Hope my post didn't come across as too rude or discouraging.
