where exactly did you get 'guards doing checks every 2-3 hours"?

and where I was housed was called the Barracks. which is a large tin barn type thing... concrete walls, but tin roof, divided into 4 sections. b1, b2, b3 and b4.. b1 for the "c" classification.. normal people not likely to prey on others but will fight if provoked.. the a and b classification's were housed in other units, the guy's who'd spend about 3-4 months in the prison I was in before getting sent back to high or max security housing for fighting/assaults, ect.. C's can be housed anywhere with anybody. a's and b's can only be housed with other a's and b's, if that makes sense.... b2 was for sex offenders and other guys with "d" classification.. and rats.. ppl on PC... b3 was for E classification's, guys with medical issues.. old and waiting to die ect... B4 was Ad-Seg.. the 'hole'.... center of the units was "the pod" the guard room.

guards would make rounds every 30-45mins or so... we had count at I belive 7am, noon (before chow), 4 or 5pm (before chow) and I believe 9 pm or so.. those were standing counts.. there was informal counts at I believe midnight and again 3-4am.

the 'no blanket and lights on all the time" was the hold/ad-seg... where you're in a concrete room with a metal door with a little rectangle window.. the walls are painted baby blue and pink (psychological trick to make us passive), which in the winter is kept cold as fuck and summer hot as fuck.. the lights are on 24-7 and you don't get a blanket during summer, during winter you get a thick (but not warm) blanket that's 'tear proof' so ppl can't hang themselves. and you sleep on a metal 'bunk'... you're in there 23hours a day, but you have no idea what time it is or what time your 'rec' time is.. which is the one hour a day you get to walk around (in ankle and belly chains) and shower.. which in the summers the water is hot as fuck and the winter it's cold as fuck, and get a little washcloth to dry off.... if you sleep through your 'rec time', which is easy because you have no concept of time in there... you could go 3days easily without showering.

horseshit and fairly tales? I lived this shit for years.

and I don't know where you got 'federal prison' from.. it was state prison. you don't get fed time for armed robbery unless it's a bank.... and fed time is easy, for the most part. much better food and the guards aren't cocksuckers (as the fed prisons are under constant review).. only bad part is you have to do 85% of your time before parole/fed-probation, and you can't buy personal TV's.

You're like hardcore and all that shit man  Cool

Don't notice kids at all. They might as well be invisible. In fact, I almost drove into a group of them yesterday morning coming home from the gym. A group of irrelevant bodies standing in the middle of the parking garage exit. Luckily for them something caught my attention at the last possible second and I slowed down enough for them to scatter and get out of the way with a nano second to spare.

If I had to waste a smallest moment of quantifyable time thinking about what they were doing blocking the road, I would assume they were posting some unintelligible excrement on various 'social media' hives.

Im sure if I told my parents tomorrow I want to get my physics degree they would support me with $ in order to study full time for it. Thing that pisses me off is I've been on get big four years and I haven't done jack shit. I could of built a really nice life for myself by now.,...or been close to it. I'm still 21.

The age I went to university. So what are you waiting for?

Just don't sit a pointless degree and waste 3 years of your life. Nobody needs an idiot that tossed off on a degree in 'American Studies' or 'Human Resources' or 'Mass Media' or 'Languages' 'Sociology' 'Sports Science' or any other of the 1001 dumbass degrees. If you're lucky enough to find a job after sitting 3 years suffering through that, you'll never have any job security. There's a 100 thousand other that took the exact same easy path as you did.

So, get to it then!

This is the situation I'm in. W   parents are trying  to strike a deal with me where if I go back to school they give me cash but they know what I spend the cash on so they would have me on a budget. food and rent...that's it. So I have an important decision to make.

Continue working the shit fly by manual labor jobs I do and have a little money in my pocket  Or go back to school and be broke for two years.   Look I got no problem with hard work Im not a lazy guy...but  I have a bunch of friends older than me in their mid to late twenties, went to good colleges, walk away with their bachelor's degrees and are 25 ,,,, living with their parents while they work at GNC for 12 bucks an hour.....no thanks.

I was lucky and got a great job out of pure luck, For a brief period I Was making about a grand a week cash under the table. On top of the money my parents were giving me, 7 k a month. would of been almost 90k a year... For a high school drop out...that's pretty good. Dude broke up with his wife got back on drugs and got fired and that was that Im back to square 1.

My point is though there are way to make money. I've proven this to myself time and time again so if Im going to do the college thing it better be worth my time
...

Then learn from your friends and don't take a worthless degree.

'Degree' has become the most dangerous word in the work place. People are under the impression it makes you red hot property to employ  Roll Eyes

No, you managed to do your 3 years and now you still don't know fuck all.

The only degrees worth taking are engineering degrees, science degrees and perhaps finance degrees. And law. Nothing else.

If I had my time over I would sit a Physics degree. I'll struggle my balls off but I'll grind through it. You walk out of that, you can do anything from Finance to Engineering to Science to Teach/Lecture. Probably even law as in the UK at least you don't need to go to university to be a lawyer. There's more people working at Google with Physics degrees/masters than any other degree out there.

If you have enough smarts and willing to fight a constant headache for 3-4 years, take a look at it..

I am 32. When I grew up in the 80's kids were even much different than they are now. I remember growing up and not being fixated on electronics. I remember constantly going outside and not being stuck indoors all day long.

Yea? I remember learning M4d! Q Basic programming SKillz and playing QFG 1-4 for hours on end. Hacking on Ultima and trolling, or 'flaming' as it was called back then on BBS'

Point is, we also had PCs and electronics back then, granted, not on the scale and widely available and affordable as they are today.

I'm so happy I grew up in the 80s and 90s. I wouldn't be able to partake in the 'social media' crap and end up being an outcast.

In an ideal world. However, extraordinarily difficult to find something that pays comparable or better and I have many expenses tied to current level of income.

Yep, that's the nature of the high-income beast.

If you're in management, a lot of management 'skills' are transferable into other industries.

this would be ideal

I can't do it my friend.

Saying that, nor could I work as a factory worker or checkout assistant or whatever shit job.

You could really spend the rest of your life chilling in bed, going to the gym and doing nothing whatsoever?

whoa whoa whoa


hold the phoneeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee ee

simple simon, you are 50 and post and troll like a 15 year old with add?
and you have been ragging on me all this time
wow this changes the whole game. Im a fucking mental mess which is why i post like i do at 48. You have to have some nuts loose upstairs to post like you do at 50? Or INSANELY LOW self esteem. No 50 year old except Donny posts like you.

I didnt know you were old like me,.......holy shit are you ever a loser. Unless you have mental health issues then that would explain it, but 50 and trolling like you do?Fcuk sakes man get a life.

He's good people. He tries to start shit for laughs.

Don't take it too serious. It's all good on here my man  Smiley

Once a year I get together for a weekend with the other people I work with (on my level and above) for our annual retreat at a luxury hotel. We all hate each other but it is unsaid and we all smile and pretend that we are all collegial and friendly. Also unsaid is that our biggest competitors in our business are not at other businesses but within our own business as we would all steal each other's clients at the first opportunity. As soon as we get back to our offices on Monday it's back to the usual backstabbing, double dealing, etc. None of us are billionaires by any stretch but most everyone at our level is doing pretty well, relatively speaking.

It is a miserable life.  

Get another job?
11  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: life as a poor person (most of you), is it really worth it? on: April 16, 2014, 02:59:28 PM
Not sure why but humans have had the idea pounded into them that if they don't work that they cannot be defined.  Total bullshit.  The smartest people are the ones that accumulate enough wealth to then retire early and enjoy life.  Being a billionaire and working until your dead is total bullshit.  You can't spend that money in death.



I agree with you in a way, but some of us like working. I do something I love doing, so I don't call it work. It keeps me busy and gives me purpose. I don't want to get up at 9am, go to the gym, roll back into bed and spend the rest of the day drinking and doing nothing. I'll get depressed. Equally, I won't work a job I hate. I'll rather go on welfare and retrain before I do that. I've just applied for a much better job (won't mention the salary as everyone will spend the day crying and squealing) and it looks like I'm going to get it. I might be shit at it and get fired after 3 months but it would've been fun, given me purpose and made me a bit of money along the way.

How else would I have spent this time? Drinking, training, sleeping and playing games the whole day? Again, I'll get depressed.

People think 'Life' is this horrible thing to go through. Spend a week going after a job you think you might enjoy. You might just end up changing your life for the better.

he was an underground world fighting champion

he was betrayed by his grand master

and framed for a murder he didn't commit

inside the corrupt prison guards had set up a fight to the death full contact championship

esf fought them all before clearing his name when some sympathetic lawyers

read the manuscript of his life

titles 6 grams a week then kung fu mother fuckers

and fought to have his name cleared

on release from prosin to remind himself of the hell he went through esf posted all his worst pics on his new website for personal training


those pics are a constant reminder that the 300 lb with abs killing machine was once humbled by life

true story

take ESF for example

steroid dealing ex con, always upside down in bills (luxury car payments, enormous mortgage, designer clothes, posh restaurants) just so he can try to get a whiff of what it would be like to be rich and be perceived as such. ironically he's like a hamster running as fast as he can in his wheel, never seeming to get anywhere despite his best efforts


is such a life really worth it?

Off course it's not. The only 'payments' worth making are mortgage payments. Expensive car payments = mug's game.

Lemonade money, champagne lifestyle

director? vp? CEO? Huh

What about those jobs?

Last CEO I personally knew off were pulling in millions a year. IF they're clever they'll chuck it in at 50 and live the good life.

You'd love to be a CEO, don't lie. We all would.

like what, supervisor for a few pennies more Huh

If a 'supervisor' in a factory is all your aspire to be, then you will probably live as a poor person.

18  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Happy Tax day: $100K-Plus Earners Pay 72% of Federal Income Taxes on: April 16, 2014, 11:55:38 AM
Money threads always bring out the "highrollers", religion threads bring out the "nutters" and wyhi threads bring out.....well they bring out everyone.

Most individuals in the US do not earn anywhere close to 100K a year.  Most families of 5-6 live on less than half of that.  

My household is extremely middle class.  I work, wife works, kids in daycare.  We both work professional jobs and we're both average earners, but collectively and compared to majority we earn a ton more than most.  In that sense we are very, very wealthy (won't even talk about other countries).   We've lived on far, far less and been very happy.....it is possible LOL.  

No, you don't get lavish vacations each year, pockets of spending cash, meals out 5 days a week, constant shopping sprees.....you live with less.   All that other stuff is just stuff.  

We don't own a business, have employees and everything associated with that.  We man cubes in large cube farms in big international corporations.  

We put money away best we can and we live with less.  

Every year friends go on vacations....we don't.  Every 2 years friends buy new vehicles.....we don't.   Every new gadget that is released our friends purchase......we buy something every 4-5 years.  We live with less.  

We tithe to our church, we give to the poor, we pass out money to those on street corners, we spoil our child a bit, we shop at discount stores like Target and Walmart for normal stuff, but if we need nicer things we go to nicer places and plan for things.  

Getbig is a fantasy that everyone indulges in....what I just wrote is a taste of reality......nobody wants to read that though LOL.

We all know who the financial successes are on this board....they'll always let you know LOL.  Hey, good for them.  Me, I'm "Joe Average Middle Class".

Yet you believe in sky fairies and invisible ghosts, a ship that sailed with all the animals in the world for days as the planet flooded and dinosaurs that dropped from the sky as the talking 'spirit' up there wanted it.

Shower us with more reality  Cheesy

I would drop her now James, shallow and superficial, I bet shes out of your league though and you are clinging onto her as we speak.

Some interesting thoughts in this thread. Let's discuss bodybuilding. I believe it can be reduced to transcendence. Ordinary guys can go from a nobody to Mr Wonderful if he gets big muscles. Larry Scott is a perfect example. It also explains why some take shortcuts such as drugs. Why take 10 years when you can do it in 3? That attitude overlooks the risks involved. Or perhaps the ordinary Joe is willing to pay the price to be someone other than his ordinary self.

About Getbig being a therapy destination. Sometimes. Mostly I see nasty, mean and even sadistic individuals attacking others. The targets must be masochists because they come back for more. To everyone else this is amusing and perhaps rightly so. Naturally it isn't that funny if we are the targets who get tarred and feathered! Getbig is a jungle where only the strong survive. Sometimes the lads get carried away and then it will appear that the inmates have taken over the asylum.


You're still refusing to debate philosophy, particularly Existentialism and Pragmatism with me.

What you Vincent Basile!!

Haha  Grin

Why don't you guys read the link I posted. The average shit kicker here earns 70k+ basic and both myself and the girlfriend are degree educated professionals. 200k NEW ZEALAND DOLLARS (not USD!) a stretch? Haha, oh brother.

Edit.

I could only find 2012 figures but shop ASSISTANTS where pulling in 50k a year here (though I imagine that include a fair bit of OT). 2 years ago.

the outcome was a circle-jerk of a few guys proved my point in the 1st post. the ignorant belief that the more you take, the bigger you get... that all you gotta do is take a certain amount of steroids/ped's and you'll become Ronnie Coleman.

nobody 'runs me off', and nobody tells me what to do or 'goads' me into doing something. not in real life, and sure as hell not on the internet. lol.. this ain't high school.

Fair point. I just saw your name and suddenly remembered that thread as it became quite a hefty and heated discussion with the usual suspects showing up and starting their usual bull shit.
24  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Calgary Mass Murder on: April 15, 2014, 08:37:14 PM
if more concerned citizens carried weapons, people would think twice before going on these little rampages/tantrums.

how often do you hear about people walking into a police station and stabbing a bunch of cops? not very often? I wonder why? maybe because they realize the risk of being shot by at least ONE person rather quickly, is pretty likely.

... or an NRA rally/convention.

... or a US Border.

ect...


ES, fella, keep forgetting to ask you. What was the outcome of the thread you made last week where the Getbig hordes swarmed all over you? Did they run you off or did the thread have a happy conclusion?
