I can't do any local jobs for special reasons... So your saying start a website? How and what website?
If I had a good idea for a website I'd make it myself lol, that's something you'll have to come up with yourself. Think of something interesting/useful and original and you could end up making a hell of a lot, however it would require you to learn some basic coding unless you want to use 'premade' website templates.

Even though i am way younger than i am supposed to be for posting this...
Does anyone know any internet job opportunities for making some small cash?
- I have started a Minecraft server, and haven't gotten any donations yet even though i think my server is pretty awesome...
You're competing with a lot of people, unless your server stands out I wouldn't expect many donations.
- I do not know any legitament paid survey sites...
Yeah don't bother with these. Either scams or pay terribly.
Under these conditions, would anybody list me some ways to earn money online? I am able to work some hours every day...
(I am doing this for my own sake and my server's) ...
Well I would be surprised if you could find anything good really. Ad revenue from either a website you run or from a hosting site like Youtube or Twitch are probably the two main ways average people make money but both are very hard to be successful in. Unfortunately for you nowadays developing countries have much access to the internet meaning there are a lot of people out there probably more qualified or experienced as you willing to do many online jobs for peanuts.
To be perfectly honest the best way of making money is simply to get some kinda job- be it mowing lawns or babysitting or whatever odd job you can find for your family or your neighbours. Sure there's a chance you can make money online but chances are you wont unfortunately.
Jul 12, 2014I've only had four different phones so far, getting the first when I was either 12 or 13. Considering I just got my fourth one that's about one every 2-3 years.Posted in: General Off Topic
Currently got a Motorolla Moto G, which I would highly recommend. Nothing I saw on the market at the moment compares in terms of bangs for bucks; well under US$200 and has all the features I could possibly want.
Jul 12, 2014It is of course possible. Naturally it's more risky as there is a reasonable potential for either you or the friend to develop feelings for the other which can be hurtful if they're not reciprocated. My advice based off my experiences in life is if you've got intentions of wanting more out of someone than just friendship, tell them as early on as you can. That'll make it easier for both of you if the friend doesn't want more. You really don't want to be full blown in love with someone and find they don't love you back when you coulda found out they weren't interested when it was nothing more than infatuation.Posted in: General Off Topic
Just don't be one of those dudes who whine constantly about being 'friendzoned'. That used to be called being turned down, but neckbeards and the like have found a way to twist it into it somehow being the girl's fault. Nobody can force themselves to be sexually interested in someone and heaven forbid should a girl want to be friends with someone and not have sex with them. If you're such a 'nice guy' to them you shouldn't require sex as a reward for your niceness now should you?
In the end yes, guys and girls can definitely be 'just friends' but I feel it requires either no romantic feelings on either part or a mutual understanding of feelings that means neither party will be too hurt if their advanced are rejected. That's why, like I said, I'd recommend getting feelings out sooner in general just in case. There's just as much chance of it working out later, but at least the rejection wont be so bad if it doesn't. I won't bore you with my story but I got lucky in that my long term best friend did have feelings for me too, but I know it would have been very hard if it turned out she didn't. Just never blame the other person if they don't. We don't choose who we're attracted to.
But really, there's this risk in any friendship. My flatmate is gay, and I consider him a friend, long before I knew he was gay too. Should I avoid all friendships with guys in case they develop feelings for me? Just thought that was an interesting perspective to take.
Jul 9, 2014The majority of anonymous are 12 year olds who think they're 'pro hackers' because they've downloaded scripts to DDOS sites they disagree with. Sure there are some genuinely 'talented' hackers amongst them but the majority who identify as anonymous probably do it just to feel 'powerful' because the common population have no idea how they do what they do.Posted in: General Off Topic

Jul 8, 2014I feel if you expect gratitude for something then you're not really doing it for anyone other than yourself. Gratitude is nice of course but I hold the door open for people because I would appreciate others doing the same for me not to get thanked.Posted in: General Off Topic

It's called a Toyota Corolla in the US. And yes, the new Toyota GT86 is called the Scion FR-S in the US (and there is also a Subaru BRZ which is the same with a different front bumper and built-in GPS navigation). For my next car, I'm considering getting the BRZ but it will have to wait a few years.
Well, the Levin is a make of Corolla yes, that's the same here, but it's more specifically the coupe version. Corollas are usually 4 doors, at least here.
Here's a photo of my car:
Even got her own little badge:
Jul 3, 2014Honestly once you've driven enough it just becomes second nature. It always pays to remember though you are in a very responsible position behind the wheel of a vehicle travelling that fast and a lot of people who do drive don't seem to realize it.Posted in: General Off Topic
As a New Zealander I've had a hell of a lot of experience driving on mountain roads as is, some even single lane (two way) mountain roads. You just gotta take it at a comfortable speed, keep as far left (or right, whichever side you drive on) as possible and please, PLEASE pull over if you're holding someone behind you up.
Jul 2, 2014I like cars, though I don't have the money to do anything cool to mine. When I graduate uni and get a better job I'll probably save up for something faster/cooler than my current car- ('99 Toyota Levin)Posted in: General Off Topic
I've always wanted a European sports car, perhaps a Aston or a nice Merc. If I'm a bajillionaire I'll have to get a Veyron or some kinda Lambo/Ferrari too. That however doesn't seem particularly likely at this stage... lol.
A more realistic nice car would be the Toyota 86. Damn that thing's gorgeous, and pretty cheap too. Not really a super car or anything but I don't really live in an area where you can drive particularly fast anywhere anyway.
Jul 2, 2014LOL. They're censoring j-erk? That's the most ridiculous interpretation of 'swearing' I've ever seen.Posted in: Feedback Archive
If you're gonna start censoring that you really need to add a filter, that's the kinda insult a 5 year old would use.
Jul 1, 2014What I want to know is why they're censoring the word 's**' as though it's somehow a naughty word? Cmon guys, seriously? It's a word to describe what parts you have between your legs and to describe copulation, which is something pretty much all multicellular animals on the planet partake in. No child is going to have their 'innocence' ruined by reading that word.Posted in: Feedback Archive
