Poor in Portsmouth? Listen up…

I am really annoyed that Boris Johnson is trying to deflect attention from his own mistakes by threatening the meagre incomes of jobseekers on benefits against a background of rising food prices, rising rents and rising energy prices.

How do you counter that? Be smart.

Yes, it’s happened to me in the UK that I applied for a manual labour job that I thought I would actually enjoy and the person in question was suspicious of me, thought that I was somehow trying to pull something on him. Odd, really, because he had a law degree and had also decided to do something very different, involving a lot of manual labour, and start a business that had nothing to do with law.

Poor in Portsmouth? Listen up!

In the second video, I explain why I added that bit about buying Cardano at the end of first video. In the third video, I will tell you why I am telling you about these things.

You can do this kind of stuff – open a Coinbase account and scan your ID, and also do any learn and earn videos and quizzes – at the public library, provided you have one of the newer computers (in the new room at the Carnegie library, for example; many websites no longer work on the older computers, but the scanner is still attached to one of the older computers).

If you need help, ask library staff. If you encounter someone who is a bit reluctant or if it is busy, wait till you can get someone else’s help or until it is less busy. A lot of the staff loves helping you but not everyone does.

THIS IS IMPORTANT:
Do not invest more than £5.

See, the biggest problems with these kinds of things are greed (the fear of missing out aka FOMO) and the fear of losing money.

Yes, lol, there is a little hiccup in this second video but I had already spent about 4 hours on it, was not gonna do more editing on this, and hey, the video is fine as it is. You get the message loud and clear and I found the hiccup even relatively entertaining.

In the third video, I explain why I am telling you about putting £5 into Bitcoin or Ethereum or Cardano. The prices of Bitcoin and Ethereum are so high now that putting money into that is going to feel futile whereas putting money into Cardano (at around 80 pence a piece) makes you feel hopeful. It can help kick you out of feeling powerless.

Yes, I have literally wanted to run away screaming from inside a Tesco once when I noticed several people counting their coins to see what they could afford to buy.

Recently, I have seen these NHS posters that admonish people that they need to keep the temperature indoors at a minimum of 18 degrees Celsius. So many people cannot afford that! Even before the pandemic, and now the inflation and the soaring energy prices, EACH WINTER, tens of thousands of people in Britain were dying because of the consequences of not being able to heat their homes properly, which is far more than in countries with colder climates!

So I am looking for every little way in which I can help change the whopping level of poverty in Britain.

One thought on “Poor in Portsmouth? Listen up…

  1. Coinbase just allowed me to earn $3 worth of Jasmy, which is an interesting development that I had not heard of yet. Looks like it was launched in November? Started by former Sony execs, intended to give users more control over their own information, the kind of data gleaned from IoT devices.

    Sounds like possibly intended to counter Amazon’s massive perpetual data-grabbing. Amazon knows so much about you that it sometimes even already knows that you’re pregnant before you do. (Because your sense of smell changes when you’re pregnant and Amazon may detect that in what products you look at on its site.)

    It is bound to have hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of pages with information on me alone. People who ask Amazon for the data the company holds on them are often taken aback to see how much that is, even if they haven’t bought many things on Amazon at all.

    “Coinbase Earn just sent you 20.94460152 JASMY”

    Currently worth £2.25. I am going to let this sit and see what happens, even though its price development seems to have taken a roughly similar path as the price development of Crypterium so far.
