I would rather rot in hell than do cashier work. Just become a pharmacist technician or pharmacist? A lot better than slaving away on a farm or keyboard?

Do NOT get into trucking. A few decades ago I figured out if I worked a double shift at Mickey D's (McDonalds) I could take home more money while being at home than being away 19 days out of every 21, sitting at docks or waiting in a long line with 150 other big rigs waiting to either get loaded or unloaded by surly forklift operators, laggard lumpers who were pulling down twice what I made.

It was easy work as long as you didn't think about how a 80,000-lb gross weight load was going to affect your lifestyle while descending a 5 mile or lesser length 6% grade in less than ideal conditions (compact snow & ice, black ice, idiot drivers in 4-wheelers who have zero concept how dangerous cutting off a loaded big rig is in order to avoid slowing down instead while exiting), or how dangerous a neighborhood was while waiting at industries' front gates surrounded by abject poverty, strife (Detroit, Oakland, East Los Angeles). At least the cab had a AM-FM radio, CD player to help while away the boredom. Job never paid enough to take advantage of the fringe benefits street life offered (escorts, hookers with STDs) in between trips. Boo hoo.

..........Seriously though, sell your body. It's the only thing that fits the job criteria you laid out. ;p



I'd accept Shomin Sample, not selling my body = =

I've read a news somewhere that truck drivers are being replaced by automatic car driving system, truck driving does not seem like an easy job

Hmm if your going to stay in Taiwan, cant really be helped under the 1 China system. If you were here in the states there are any number of option. Near Seatte WA USA there is a Nintendo video game testing site where ppl are paid to play games and find bugs. Same for Microsoft campus just a bit north of Seattle. Those jobs I believe are $20ish USD per hour. I myself am a low voltage electrician. so its mostly fiber optics, Cat6 and Audio/visual... pretty laid back work and pay is $30+ USD hr


Being an electrician is gonna hurt my brain lol, thanks for the suggestion though


P.S. Conclusion, become a landlord and get tenants

Hmm, the good thing about being a landlord is that you don't have to do any work, have someone rent your property. Being a soldier is a good choice, as long as you do not have to go to war

As the song goes:

The hardest work that ever I done was plowin' a field of rye
The easiest work that ever I done was eatin' chicken pie

Yes yes it all requires hard work, but what if we can invest smartly? My elementary school teacher used to tell us that by saving one million dollars in a bank you can live off of interest for the rest of your life, but there would not be fun in that. Sorry about the skynet joke, it reminded me of Dead Zone.

Now, if you can take part of your savings, invest in a house, you can get paid rent for more than the interest of the bank, and you can sell the house after a few years. That I think is smart investment. Of course there is risk of earthquake and some other hazards, but those are unlikely, this makes it quite a good investment.

And by saying this it probably makes the rest of the market more competitive, sigh. It just means we need to invest more smartly. You see Facebook, it lends you the service, but it does not give you the web page.

Not sure you've ever done the landlord bit have you? Been there, done that, never again. First allow me to clear up a misconception you seem to have. Being a landlord still has work, more so if you have multiple properties. your still responsible for taxes. You dont always have renters every single month, some times it can be 3-4 months before you have a new tenant. To say nothing of the costs and labor you'll spend repairing or replacing the houses or the appliances within. All of which are YOUR problem when you become a landlord.

All of this for the most part can be negligible if your lucky enough to get good tenants. One bad tenant and your "Good investment" will bankrupt you. My first house I rented out for 7years. last renter lived in the house for a bit over a year and in that time they destroyed the interior to the point the house had to be completely gutted. I originally paid $163,000 USD for the house and was renting it out for $1,200USD per mo. the repairs from last tenant was a bit over $90,000 USD. I wouldn't call it an investment at all. I would call it a gamble. No matter what credit check, deposit amount, or backround check you run. all it takes is 1 bad tenant and you end up high blood pressure, a lot of debt and regrets

Well you need to be detailed on the rules, the tenants should be the one paying for the repair, not you. All professions require you to deal with the customers one way or the other, that's where you get the moolah
