I assume the real reason is it is farther away and you don't have any way to get there.
no. not worth it for some measly extra $3. that is an insult to workers. not risking my life over some dollars.

And if your 200s are slow, then your 100s are going to be slow. You not a speed demon bro. Where you pretty slow to first base? But you can do 100s if you want, I don't really measure them and instead do strides from 10s to 20s. Look up strides.
interesting. so tomorrow i will do easy 3 mile jog. pace 9-10 min/mile.

i was leadoff. like my boy Ichiro. they call me kid Ichiro back in the day.

looking smaller now. going to take months to get gains back. never fair.

The virus isn't going anywhere anytime soon, and they aren't going to pay you to stay at home indefinitely. When you are told to go back to work in May you are going to be "risking your life" the same, just for $3 less. Actually probably better off doing mobile, as less direct exposure with people.

Of course, they may just lay off everyone that doesn't sign up to work at the mobile only places

Re: Project ABP

ABP, you mentioned before that you might invest your $1200 stimulus check in the market, have you decided which stocks you're gonna buy? Or are you gonna go a more conservative route and play it safe with something like T bills?

it isn't going anywhere because people are selfish and don't facking listen. also this could have ended way sooner if we quarantined back in like early Feb. no one took it seriously and look at it now. all these companies run by yuppies didn't want to close down til the last minute. now they are paying the price. its like going to the dentist and fixing up a cavity early so it doesn't spread to a root canal or some sort costing you even more. B/C OF GREED THESE COMPANIES ARE NOW GOING BANKRUPT. it also show which companies are POS's. look at Everlane. i ordered 1 chino last year online. quality was like 4/10 and it didn't even fit my alpha masculine thighs. returned that thing. NOW LOOK AT THEM. pandemic really shows how your buisness is doing. buisnesses couldn't risk shutting down 2 or so weeks in Feb. this is what they deserve. a wake up call.

its too late now. i am like 1 month late. can't even buy multiple shares with 1.2k.

i have been studying botting the last 2 weeks or so. might need a new set up, and need to invest in a good bot. some of these bots do so well they actually end up in the resell market. serious money to be made.

No. They are getting bailouts. They will do just fine. They are not getting what they deserve and no lesson will be learned.

When the smoke clears, the economic gap between the guys running the company and the guys making the coffee will be larger.

Re: Project ABP

Why in the **** would you turn down a $3/hr raise? Do you have a long term plan at all?

Re: Project ABP

I mean I’m just flabbergasted. For years I worked a **** retail-ish job on minimum wage. I dont know the exact area he lives in but I have an idea and I know money has to be tight if you calculate the actual inflow vs outflow and not all this ridiculous credit card balance transferring and ABPxLoco money which is what, a few thousand?

I’d be surprised if he has an idea whether hes cash flow negative or positive. But I would bet my life it’s negative.

ABP - eventually you gotta pay your debt off. If it’s not decreasing every month you are gonna crash and burn eventually.

I remember when $3/hr raise would have meant literally the difference between having to decide between making rent or eating. He can’t be too far off from that situation, or we are missing something (like hes getting financial help from elsewhere, like his parents).

I’m honestly stunned at your lack of WIM when it comes to life stuff. You say you have HEART but it appears to only apply to lifting and shoes.

MY LIFE IS WORTH MORE THAN A PITIFUL $3. THAT IS JUST STRAIGHT DISRESPECT.

OFFER ME TRIPLE PAY/HR, ALL EXPENSES PAID IF I GET CORONA(HOSPITAL, FOOD, VENTILATOR, GAS, RENT, ETC), THEN MAYBE ILL THINK ABOUT IT.

Expenses should be zero. An ABP with HEART will kick the **** out of the coronavirus. Ask loco if you don't believe me. A true ABP simply will not be hospitalized by coronavirus and will most likely be asymptomatic.

You have a higher chance of being beaten to death by a yuppie who thinks you messed up his latte than you do of dying of the 'rona. It's just not going to happen. Knowing this, an ABP is unconcerned and continues on his purpose. This is the only true path for the ABP.

Does he even have health insurance? I assumed yes, but now I remember him saying they keep his hours limited, so maybe that is why and he doesn't?

Re: Project ABP

Melkerson spot on, finally a solid post.

Maybe 50,000 Americans will probably die this year from the Rona. Not sure how many in the future, depends on vaccine and all this other crap.

Last time I checked 50,000/300000000 is zero. And now that you running, it's probably 10000/300milion chance of dying. Negligible. Runners have higher chance of dying from getting ran overed by car (with normal traffic conditions, safe right now). Big healthy lungs and you will probably be asymptotic.

He nailed it, you got a higher chance of some yuppie beaten you to death than dying from Coronavirus. I already told you are in for AbpxLocox3 and the bigboss agreed but the problem is these casinos might not comeback for a while.

Just don't hang out with your parents til the doctors figure shiet out.

I thought he did too, but maybe he doesn't any longer.

I will say that I didn't really appreciate your confusion about my low content posts, but I think I get it now. In any case, will take locothumb.jpg however I can get it. High praise indeed. I'll try not to let it get to my head.

Have you hit any baseballs since your golden loco? I'm curious how much more power you have with all the extra muscle you've acquired.

Re: Project ABP

ABP in all seriousness, how do you ever expect to end up with more pay later if you won't take the first step towards a $3 raise

you didn't start deadlifting whatever amount of weight you're doing now, you did so with baby steps, it's incredible you'd view your career any other way

100% pay, the state can pay for me to be at home while I grind poker. I ain’t in no rush to return lol. Technically I’m already getting screwed I was supposed to get a 7k raise but now my contract is frozen and they still owe me 5k in uniform allowance and July will be another 1k in uniform. So yeah no rush to return.
