- I live out in the middle of nowhere, with piss poor internet and no real job around me (that doesn't consist of fields or farming....)
- I don't want to continue to live off of SSI for the rest of my life, because that makes me a parasite.

I have enough stamina to walk to town and back to get myself an application, however I can't do that everyday because that's 30+ miles on both the trip and the return.

College is out of the question, as well. Since that is even further away then the nearest city (not town).

Could someone please help me? I've tried to motivate people, and I looked into things myself, but there isn't much I can do.
Work from home?
Get a car and make the commute every day?
Move to the city?
Not very many comfy choices, but that's what people who want to be successful have to deal with.

As for college, if you're interested in going, why not go to one with dorms? Or move and get an apartment nearby with friends (you all can split the bills).

Does anyone here believe in something called genetic inheritance of abilities?

I had a visit from a very long distance relative today (with a really cute female cousin), and while we are talking, she mentioned something about hereditary traits.

Apparently she claims that I genetically inherited the following :

1. The ability to speed-read people's personalities from my maternal grandmother
2. The ability to put something I read into use by simply practicing it just once - from my maternal grandfather.
3. The ability to see beyond (ghosts, apparitions, etc) from an uncle / great grandparent.

She also claims that I got 1 & 2 from my mother who had the same abilities (2 is true, my mum knows German, Chinese, Bahasa and every single Chinese dialect).

I read my cute cousin's personality and told her about her apparent nervousness when trying to start a conversation, her lack of initiative and a blissful demeanour, all of which she and her mother replied to be true. I haven't proven 2 true yet, and I don't believe in ghosts and such so 3 does not apply.

Is it really that possible? Or those are skills instead of abilities; which are acquired through life experience?

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Well DNA only codes for specific proteins sequenced into specific polypeptides. If medical science is able to define that a specific polypeptide or series of such directly affects one's biological capacity for a specific task, then yes, theoretically speaking.

But since practically everyone has the same things in variation anyway, well...

We could go further and say that it also depends on what the numbers represent.

BUT! We shall not.

The thing I find quite funny is that I totally suck with people, but still be able to "read personalities". Being able to know someone by seeing is a skill gained by extensive interaction with people, and in some cases, natural ability. But I don't think that accounts to a majority of the world population. Or maybe my cousin is just too easy to read, or I pay specific attention to her because she's too cute.

The "ghost-seeing" thing is quite funny though because only yesterday did I know that one of my great-grand relatives is a well-known bomoh (witch doctor) in Northern Malaysia. Supposedly that all of his descendants can intuitively feel to a certain extent of these stuff, but seeing is a random limited edition bonus to those who carry his gene.

There are a few variations in terms and such, otherwise it is the same. And yes, my mother knows BOTH and is able to tell the difference. Wtf.

You mean every MAJOR Chinese dialect. I seriously doubt she knew Gan, Hui or Jin.

Actually, "Bahasa" just means "language" so, on its own, it's not immediately obvious which language you're referring to. But it's usually clear in context, that is, Bahasa to Malays in in Singapore or Malaysia usually means Bahasa Melayu.

And I'm not sure to what extent Indonesians would consider themselves "Malay". It's a huge nation made up of many ethnic groups, and "Malay" has come to refer specifically to the indigenous people of the Malayan peninsular (and by extension the indigenous people of Sarawak and Sabah states on Borneo island). It used to be a touchy subject, inflamed by nationalist sentiments, but it's no longer as big an issue today.

The very idea of Indonesia as one entity is also nonsense. The different islands have their own customs and language, and many do resent the Javanese central government interfering in those aspects.

Where can I find a link to a video I saw a few months ago that was a screen capture of facebook chat about a guy and a girl talking with each other, but each keeps editing their comments so it would seem not as "relationship-y"? You can tell they like each other but are afraid, and the conversation ends up "normal." I think the title is something like "almost conversation," but a search for that turns back nothing.

haha, not sure if this is how you're supposed to use this thread.. feel free to delete if it isn't right.

Ok here is a really silly question.

What is the difference between a Fauchard, a Bastard Sword, a Longsword, and a two-handed sword?

I need details....
