Leading male escort Steven Kesslar argues the Department of Homeland Security’s raid on Rentboy.com has made America more dangerous.
The US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was created to protect us from cyberattack and terrorism. Instead, it is trying to get in my pants, in my pocket, and in my brain.
DHS just shut down Rentboy.com, a gay escort website, and seized $1.4 million (€1.25 million) of its money. Why? Because it views male escorts like me as part of a ‘global criminal enterprise’. I wonder if other escort sites like mygaysites or EliteMaleEscorts will be next??
Is it necessary, or fair, for DHS to throw a lot of gay men and the escorts they hire under the bus? Does this help fight the war on terror?

work as a dish cleaner, it's pretty easy mentally, but also not physically demanding compared to how much you get done.

Right now I'm editing a novel for a dude (at a stupid low price). Every now and then someone will pay me to paint some gaming models

Couple of years ago my neighbors saw me repairing my mailbox and asked if I could do theirs, before I knew it I became the mailbox guy for the entire neighborhood.
Just paint them with Rustoleum spray paint, most of the posts are wood. I sand those up and paint them with exterior paint then gets those fancy address numbers from Lowes and that's it. I charge $50 a box and it's easy never ending work.

bro, the guy I'm editing for is a petroleum engineer who wrote three scifi/fantasy novels during school. The guy can't use a comma to save his life and probably won't get published. but god damn it's impressive when I look at all the stuff he made on his own with no real literary training.

write all you want brah. participate in dat literary tradition

same here. I seem to always do my essays at the last fuckin minute because I keep putting it off. This dude wrote three novels while getting an engineering degree and the concepts in the first one are actually pretty cool. Like he ****in shows his math when he explains the physics involved in magic. Or loosely explains the process. pretty ****in cool but I don't think it will go anywhere until it radically changes. At the rate I'm going, I'm going to cut 50 pages from this book. Just in mostly dead weight.

He's a family friend of my step mom's and I'm no professional so I'm not charging as much as I could. It was $25 a chapter but he felt like I was doing way more work, which I was, and raised it to $30. I'm hoping I can get him to the point where a legit editor will look at it and won't charge him a fortune. Just the line editing alone would've been like $700 at the usual rates. That's not counting the huge amount of developmental stuff he needs.

Up until 2 years ago and my mental issues really kicked in, I did landscaping and minor building. (As well as a LOT of digging.) Most I ever got paid for 1 job was $250 for digging up and moving all of the sod in about a 2x30 or 40 Yards area and laying down a stone border. (And digging a skinny but 30-40 yard long ditch to lay stone bricks there as well.) Basically my mom knew people that needed landscaping done at her work. So I got a few calls. Think I might have actually gotten $300 for digging and laying down a base for a retaining wall as well now that I think about it. That was 3 10 hour days. Not bad, and no tax.=) Just back breaking work.

All 3 of my jobs are basically side jobs, but they get the bills paid and leave me with enough extra to get most of the stuff I want. I am a waiter/host at a restaurant, I teach guitar lessons, and I deliver newspapers. I work around 50 hours a week.
#22
My regular "day" job was usually Electronic\Mechanical\Computer Tech related.

A little side "business" I had was IT related.
Go to peoples home, but mostly small businesses and fix stuff, custom programs (mostly customized backup programs), design and setup networks, etc.
#23
I don't do anything for extra income, but I do my day job (translating/proofreading/editing) outside of work occasionally. It's mostly for friends and family though, and I don't want to charge them for it. Besides, they're always good to buy me a beer or something if I don't have any money on me, so that's payment enough for me

I'm an electrician. I find all Kinds of side work. A buddy of mine is a small contractor. He's building and renovating Dunkin Donuts right now. He's needed alot of help on and off. That's outside of my regular weekly job. I make decent money. People always need a ceiling fan, home generator installed. People can't get electricians, we're kind of in high demand. There's been little promotion for vocational school here in the states so there is actually not as many skilled trades people as in the past.

I know who you are. I know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I do have money. But what I don't have are a very particular set of skills, skills I haven't acquired over a very long career. Skills that don't make me a nightmare for people like you. If you don't let my daughter go now, that'll be the end of it. I will look for you, I will pursue you. But if you do, I will not look for you, I won't find you, and I won't kill you.

I did freelance writing for a while, like 5-10 hours a week. Started off making jack but after about a month I was making like $20 an hour while working extremely not hard at it. Pretty sure I could make a living off it if it really came down to it.

Then grad school took over my life and I haven't done much of it since.

About to start in a hospital as volunteer. Helping out where I can. Helping with administration, follow up calls to the vulnerable (like old people) who just left the hospital to see if they're okay, helping with feeding patients and talking to patients (and play games, maybe read them a book).

Really excited

Good on you.

Hospitals are really ****ing dull places, especially once you arrive at the "well enough to be bored, not well enough to go home" stage.

Worse if it's a serious specialist center, and you're like 300 miles from home.

Bloody ISO9001, having me fill out forms when I could have spent that time not filling out forms


Then it's a poorly designed program.

Luckily I'm exaggerating
It's just a handful of forms per month (regarding different clients), but my colleague keeps moaning about the time she spends on that (literal minutes a month ), and her nagging rubs off on me.

Is there an ISO for nagging?

My skills at managing things poorly are far more widespread than mere restaurants.

You name it, I can halve efficiency in half an hour, and destroy morale in 45 minutes.
