I'm 15 years old with an IQ of 80. My life goal is to become a Chad security guard (making $50/hr), move to the Phillipines, cum inside nasty hookers raw, read classic lit, and dunk on digital nomad computer dorks. How do I do this?

>> No.23396156

>>23396140
Your IQ gets higher as you get older and take some upper level maths classes. Becoming a security guard will tie you to a location, so understand that you can either be a Chad security guard making $50/hr or a man in the Philipines rawdogging hookers and making $0/hr, but not both. Digital nomad is unironically the best option for you probably, but it takes a lot of work and dedication. The advantage is that you're young, and if you have a good attitude, lots of organizations will be willing to take a chance on you. It sounds like the military might be a good option when you turn 18, but in the meantime you can travel easily and cheaply through programs like Rotary or the American Field Service. If you can make some political connections as well, that will come in handy later in life. Consider volunteering or joining social clubs that let you rub shoulders with city council members, local elites, etc.

I really wish this site had a way to filter out underage retards.
Security guards make around $20/hr and 9 times out of ten you will be working graveyard. It's a shitty dead end job, but it is very easy.

Let's talk about commas!

>It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.

In this opening line by Jane Austen in 'Pride and Prejudice', you see she employs what is considered by some to be a very unnecessary comma. At least technically.

There are many different House Rules about when and where to deploy a comma.

For example, in sets of three, sometimes people use a comma to separate all words, or others just to separate the first two.

>Life, Love & Happiness.

I feel that there is no universal hard-set rule about commas in the world simply because they are so pervasive and omniscient in literature.

Another thing people do sometimes is use too many commas!

In amateur writing that is trying to be too-beautiful, people seem to use a lot of commas.

What are some of your personal rules for when to use a comma in your own work?

Commas are often used in place of colons and semi-colons, which is at least one reason why they're overused.
The lack of colons may be due to ignorance but I believe it's more that the comma simply looks better from an aesthetic point and doesn't produce as harsh a break while reading.

>> No.23396198

>>23396127
It's true that sometimes commas are used in place of colons and semi-colons.

I think there is definitely a tradeoff between when to deploy those things, what and when sorta thing.

I believe, though, that regarding your point about the lack of colons sometimes in literature is that it's laziness.

It's kind of the difference, maybe, between an erudite 'Moby Dick' and a more common Science Fiction novel.

Anyway, I believe deploying a semi-colon is often a mark of bravery, but can commonly be very misused indeed.

One of the many fucked up things about how much of the classical heritage we lost is that far too much material we have from the Romans is from late antiquity, because they were fucking Christians, and they, like, copied all this shit. And we have enough of this material basically to realize, if you’ll excuse my French, what fags these people were. And so there was this entire grammarian class, which was basically an intellectual class. Grammarian is Latin for fag, actually. And, you know, these people were expensively educated. They were bureaucrats. They studied Virgil. They considered themselves, you know, the equal of Virgil. And they just wrote each other these long letters full of flowery garbage. And it’s like you have this entire huge volume of letters of Sidonius or Prodentius or something like that. And, you know, just letters full of, like, you know, back scratching some other aristo, like, you know, full of flowery Latin shit. And then every once in a while, he’ll, like, drop some hint about what’s actually going on, and he’ll be like: oh, you know, Biggus Dickus, I’m sorry I could not visit you this year because the roads were not safe. And you wanna be like: why were the roads not safe? Who was on the roads? What was happening? You know, these people are writing at the time of the fall of the Roman Empire, and they don’t actually mention the fall of the Roman Empire. Who will save the roads? So that’s why I’m more right wing than Eric Weinstein.
