    Me neither. I'm one of those annoying people who smokes weed (never eaten it, though... I've been told it gives a different effect) and trips balls for 6+ hours then passes out.

    I've never tripped off weed 0_o
    And all space-cake did for me was intensify the experience of me being already stoned to the point of forgetting what I did the next morning, but no one was complaining I was any more or less weird than normal.

    i work at an organic/fair trade coffee roasters... not a coffee shop mind you, more like a small warehouse with a small store front, offering coffee (by cup or pound) and tea (by the cup) none of those fancy drinks

    i work (usually) 4 days a week, packaging for wholesale 2 of them, just chilling and watchin the register 1 of them, and doing deliveries on the other

    probaly the best job in the area too, my boss is a good person, and she takes care of her employees (pays us well, treats us with actual respect, buys us lunch at least once a week, buys us a few drinks sometimes) laid back environment as well, on the packing days it can be pretty busy (plus, being the only one that can lift them, once a week i have to load the 100-200lbs sacks of coffee onto the loading dock... makes ya kinda sore), but the other days, just chill, it's fine to have a few beers while we're working and all that jazz

    I was supposed to go to a show tonight and meet up with a crazy punk rock cholita but when I got home from work my dickhead dispatcher calls and says he needs me in at 4:15 am! I fucking hate shit like that because all they do is exploit exploit exploit and they don't give a fuck about a workers mental health, physical health all they care about is the bottom line..as I was leaving the yard today the owner pulls up in a Ferrari: fuckin' disgusting.

    I hate those "lifestyle" people, everyone's got to work, or at least get something to put food on the table. It's called being responsible and it applies no matter what political or economic system you live in. I mean, even people who work at walmart or whatnot, most of them don't have a lot of money, are often not so educated and have little else for them to do, I mean, at least they do something. I know it's probably paradoxal, but it's a dilemma that can't be solved with extremes, we have more choices than be a bum or a corporate ass.
    And like Ungovernable said, you can't do a protest in the sahara desert, people who live in the streets and eat from dumpsters aren't necessarily a bunch of idiots, but they isolate themselves and very few people will listen to any argument they try to make. Whereas people active, for instance, at their jobs, can help radicalize others.

    As for what I do, I don't think the exact word exists in english, but I work in a kind of community center for teenagers. I erh...have various functions, keep fights from happening, do various activities (from sports to Risk), talk with them about whatever they feel like talking about and do workshops (I've done international politics, skinhead culture, israelo-palestinian conflict and I'm probably doing vegetarianism soon). Even though I get paid mostly by government money, I love my job...we help kids become more critical and interested in politics and it seems we have a certain success.

    I still work, I have kids to feed, and I come from a proud socialist working class background, so I feel the need to contribute somehow...to pay my way...it doesn't stop me trying to change the world around me, and should an anarchist state one day appear, I'd hope that every member would contribute in some way, and not just get drunk and post on internet forums all day...

    I'm training to be a youth worker at the moment,which is something i'm enjoying very much. I would like to move onto Indigenous welfare in the future though.

    I work at a middle school as an associate aid (I help a special needs student). And I also work at a Hardees (AKA Carl's Jr in other parts of the country). I love the job at the school, but the pay sucks, but I hate the fast food job, but gotta do what I have to since I got a baby to take care of.

    I feel you man. I used to be an Aid for special needs students, and it is probably the best job I have ever had. It's so..filfilling I suppose. It's just sad the way many of them live in group homes and are drugged up EVERY DAY

    To get some (very little and as a loan) money and some time to do the stuff i want, i am currently an artstudent, hoping the financial system will colapse in time for me not to have to pay it back.

    I totally agree, it is really sad to see the poor kids all doped up. Luckily my student isn't in need of that. He has a brain tumor so other than the Chemo treatments there really isn't much for medications.

    I work part time as a dog daycare attendant to make ends meet. I take care of suburbanites' dogs when they're busy with their office jobs and their kids and their shopping. Plus i'm alone with the dogs on the weekends so i can post on the internet and play guitar and smoke weed. Not too shabby :)

    At least you get to work with animals, I think that's cool. Even if the animals do belong to suburbanites, at least you can give them love and attention.

    agreed about the first section,there will allways be workers because the bare necessities of life simply do not spring up out of thin air.

    however i think that eating out of skips is anti capitalist ,they loose money because it's not sold.
    and parasiting the capitalist system is my goal,if enough people do the same capitalism will become such a dysfunctional drag people will be forced to change.
    i siphon my fuel to drive averywhere i go ,from large companies and roadworks...
    people often argue i am stealing directly from tax payers.well why should people pay tax from the start?
    that's theft...
    and actually nicking diesel costs virtually zilch to the individual taxpayer
    imagine i siphon 100 liters of diesel from a steam roller.
    the people funding the work are the local mayor and committee with taxpayer's money.
    one liter of diesel costs 70cts
    (in france they use tax free red agricultural diesel in roadworks,it's 30% cheaper but you're not allowed to run ordinary vehicles on it)
    100 liters X 70 cts=70 euros
    70 euros divided between 100 taxpayers=70 cts
    between 1000 taxpayers 7 cts
    10 000 taxpayers 0.7 cts
    etc....
    so as long as i nick diesel in towns over 10 000 inhabitants it costs them less than the smallest coin we have (1euro ct)
    so they lose virtually nothing but it still burns a hole in the government's pocket...which means i get along with my life and still fuck the governement over (remember its' red disesl im allready ripping off the tax from that)
    better not get cought though ;)
    i do work on the black...its another way of draining the system of it's blood(money)
    the best is doing it while being on unenployment benefits...although i rarely do that i can't be asked with all the paperwork...

    to avoid paying house tax i live in a lorry,but am not declared as a nomad (like gypsies)
    because they have inhabitation tax as well...
    which means i don't participate in the building industry which is defacing nature and laying concrete all over it...ok and im not really supporting the car industry as my vehicle is over 40 years old...
    which makes it cheap,so i need no bank supporting loans to buy it or run it.
    my biggest yearly expense is insurance...im not really prepared to get locked away for not being insured...so i can't escape that unfortunately...(third party is a required to be road legal over here)
    on the other hand ill be able to get classic vehicle insurance soon which costs about 40 euros a year rather than 700!
    being economic does'nt support consumerism which is what capitalism creates...i try to get as much stuff as possible second hand,so money goes back to people not companies,and no tax is payed on second hand goods...
    etc...etc... :D
