@Zyzz yeah no one ever complains about their work ethic. My boss said he'd hire them too, but they're too expensive.

2018-06-08 23:18:56 UTC  

I'm not sure what SAs ask for, but I get paid $13/hr + room and board.

2018-06-08 23:20:30 UTC  

Not sure what that's like state adjusted

2018-06-08 23:22:50 UTC  

Honestly it's pretty good for me. I don't pay for housing or food, and I'm a disabled vet so the military takes care of my medical. I could make a lot more money somewhere else but I can't emphasize enough how much I love my job.

2018-06-08 23:24:00 UTC  

Plus SD cost of living is pretty low so I'm actually doing ok financially.

2018-06-08 23:24:54 UTC  

huh, that sounds really good then

2018-06-08 23:25:20 UTC  

y'all best not be putting harmful chemicals in our food now 😤

2018-06-08 23:26:26 UTC  

one thing i really like about Europe is their food quality

2018-06-08 23:26:40 UTC  

no gmo, chemicals, pesticides, hormores, or any of that other nonsense

2018-06-08 23:27:11 UTC  

food is more expensive and portions of smaller but its better for you and i think that shows up in how much better looking the people are than your avg white american

2018-06-08 23:27:54 UTC  

would tend to agree, we're very unhealthy

2018-06-08 23:36:59 UTC  

Lol! I load the concentrated stuff into these sprayers without PPE so if I live you're probably safe. Honestly the harshest stuff we use is ammonia. Organic farmers need the same chemicals to produce their crops too. They just need to fertilize a lot more often because bird scat has less of what you need and a bunch of other stuff that you didn't want in the first place. I personally don't buy into a lot of the organic propaganda. I was a nuclear reactor operator in the navy and I like to think I have a pretty good understanding of chemistry. There might be some disadvantages to using modern herbicides but I am personally in the good outweighing the bad camp. Now if we could just stop using our scientific advances to feed worthless people everything would be perfect.

@Deleted User if I was going to boil down my opinion I would have to say that I basically bathe in synthetic crops and chemicals all day and if anything I've become infinitely more Chad since I started here. If you are concerned about your food don't be an urbanite and grow it yourself. There is no way in hell eating GMOs makes you more of a fag than someone who shops at Trader Joe's.

2018-06-08 23:55:10 UTC  

Lol, no yeah what goes into those crops is probably the least of our chemical worries anyways

2018-06-08 23:56:16 UTC  

Yeah. I don't even touch tap water. That s*** is making the frogs gay.

2018-06-08 23:56:58 UTC  

I've got well water and a decent purifying system in the basement

2018-06-08 23:57:31 UTC  

I drink bottled water more than I probably should though

2018-06-08 23:59:55 UTC  

if anything the rest comes from soap/shampoo additives and stuff

2018-06-09 00:01:49 UTC  

Everything is relative. If you are even sort of careful you'll probably live until your too old to care for yourself anyway. One of my biggest fears is becoming a burden on my family. But I guess that's just me being white.

2018-06-09 00:04:51 UTC  

tfw a burden on family still 😳

2018-06-09 00:05:21 UTC  

am a youngin though

2018-06-09 00:21:40 UTC  

@Deleted User how old are you?

2018-06-09 00:45:00 UTC  

Tide is 47

2018-06-09 00:50:55 UTC  

48 this August 😄

2018-06-09 00:55:57 UTC  

No but really, just turned 21 this may

2018-06-09 00:56:39 UTC  

Goyd damn son! Get out of thine father's house. To be fair though I wasn't independent until I was 19 which is a year later than I would have liked.

2018-06-09 00:57:50 UTC  

Yeahh I'll figure something out

2018-06-09 00:58:06 UTC  

are you in school?

2018-06-09 00:59:03 UTC  

I turned 21 this may, as well. About to move out.

2018-06-09 00:59:07 UTC  

with some ie guys

2018-06-09 00:59:33 UTC  

That's great @Rogue !

2018-06-09 01:00:28 UTC  

That's what IE should be all about. Helping each other however we can!

2018-06-09 01:01:22 UTC  

@Zyzz No I'm not, never was one for it.

2018-06-09 01:01:58 UTC  

trade or military then

2018-06-09 01:03:37 UTC  

get a CDL ^

2018-06-09 01:07:27 UTC  

👆 CDLs are gold. I just started learning how to drive truck and it's great. It's pretty easy and companies will pay a premium for guys they don't have to worry about drug testing. Regardless you need to figure something out. I hate to be tough love but IE is no place for NEETs.

2018-06-09 01:08:35 UTC  

No no, by all means bully me.

2018-06-09 01:09:27 UTC  

@Deleted User youre young dude take a chance and head out west to one of those boom towns and get a job

2018-06-09 01:12:49 UTC  

Ok then first step is to tell you to stop being such a cuckold an stop asking to be bullied you pathetic nerd! Seriously just move out of your parent's house. IE won't let you starve but struggling a bit is good for you.
