I am an out of work carpenter, who just relocated from Portland Or. to Salt Lake City Utah. Lol

I was a litigation intern, but that didn't last, because it mostly consisted of me in a feces-infested basement ready to approximate my organs from inward out.  Now I'm just a freeloading teddy bear.

I drive a taxi. I keep my bills low by driving a POS and renting.

I always wanted to do that. A buddy of mine drives a taxi in Charlotte, has stories that are hard to believe.

It's fun! And believe those stories smily_headphones1.gif. I had a guy pay me $40 to hang out with him at his house, I told him I wasn't gay. He said he wasn't either. So I walked in with the guy. He must have had at least a $300,000 townhouse. He told me about his designing of underwater
bridge components. So I'm thinking this guys legit. I walked with him downstairs and he had his masters degree in architectual engineering. We talked about the business he owned for a little while. As we were walking back upstairs he says "alright I'm just going to be honest with you... I'm going to need some me time right now". So I'm thinking, if he pulls out his business, I'm leaving. We walked upstairs and he walks into the kitchen and comes back out with a cookie sheet of crack (I had to ask what it was) and starts smoking it in front of me. I said are you smoking crack right in front of me? He said "yes, aren't I the most honest person you've ever met?" So as he started talking about dropping acid into his eyeballs when he was younger, I pulled out my iPhone and recorded the whole thing and put it on Facebook.

I could never judge you for it. If I was in the same situation I'd be making all of my dreams come true as well. smily_headphones1.gif

Library specialist--work mostly with library systems and archives. Terrible pay, not that I got into the field with the expectations of striking it rich. I afford audio gear thanks to the magic of credit cards. ^^

Sports writer and editor. It's great.

IT support. I'm fortunate enough to have landed a good job that provides a decent income, but probably nothing like some of the hardcore users here. It's been sufficient to provide me with a good home setup. Most of my money is in home theater, but I have a nice dual room setup with a couple of large TV's, custom built audio system and good components, including a custom built HTPC that has been my baby for many years.

Pointy-haired boss.



My secret to owning high-end audio is that I don't own any...

HVAC Technician. Lately with the past hurricane and the summertime I work a ton of hours so anything after my regular pay has been going to my headphone set ups. I find headphones a great stress reliever after a stressful hard day at work.

Data Entry and full time student. It gives me just enough to get by and afford a bit of my hobbies. Job isn't so bad though as the organization I work for sends preschool teachers through college. Pretty cool knowing that my work is part of the bigger picture of helping people out.
