    Yeah, military or big scholarships or it might not make the most sense, unless its your dream. Fulfillment is the actual key ingredient to happiness I suppose.

    I can still think you're being hopelessly naive.

    and still manage to get the ones with potential trained,

    and get to have a nice run on the purse match circuit without ruining their lives while doing so.

    These conversations go down, pretty much this way,

    with 95% of the people who show up saying they want to do to purse fights.
    I still want to fight, and I'm not going to back down if the troll actually signs a bout agreement. I'll just budget extra hard on my personal comforts, and come up with the money. With some time and ingenuity, I could publicize a politicized fight and make some money from sponsors or interested parties.

    That said, it's probably never going to happen, and finding other ways to make money is going to be my primary focus. I do think I'll be taking some fights before the year is out, if for no other reason than some pocket change and a chance to test out a re-athletisized body.

    Not quite the same as hurting somebody yourself but you may get a little blood and sweat splattered on you if you are lucky.

    Same offer goes for any other bully.
    Between this and your pimping game, I'm beginning to question your ethics.


    I'm sorry if I ever offended you, please don't send your MMA thugs to my house.

I know life isn't fair, but I want to work towards a world that is more fair. Where opportunity is closer to equal, and we do what we Ought as a society because we Can.
    I also believed that shit in high school.

    Take a fucking breath and get a hold of yourself.

    You are a dumbass to panic, a dumbass to fuck with faceless trolls across the pond (or anywhere) to the point of planning a trip to fight one.

    Not a dumbass in general.

    If you are serious about applying for jobs better than your current one, then do that. It's productive, and you will feel better about yourself by doing productive stuff that will benefit your family in the long run. Fix up your resume and cover letter, or at least the basic ones you have to modify for specific job or training applications.

    Tell your wife what you are doing, and why (lol, might want to leave bs.net life-counselors out of it, though). Get her to help you out if she can.

    I make about the same as an engineer an hour with none of the student dept.,stronger hands, a better tan and way more overtime.

    I have worked as a network engineer and an Outside Plant Engineer. Drafting,walk out and data entry are all boring as shit and its salary usally. So you generally make less but work less than guys out on the lines.
    I will take Linesman,splicer or repairman any day of the week over that.

    Dumbass is a real insult, BTW, in case you didn't know it.

    You had no idea about skilled trade work being so potentially lucrative for young man such as yourself, so, you want to go fight some so-called "fascist" in England of all places, who is more than likely just a fucking troll, taking a "vacation", away from your family, BTW.

    So what are we supposed to think ?

    You must think so little of me and my desire to do my best for my family, to think I wouldn't put in even that basic amount of work to determine if I could obtain medical insurance I could in any way afford. I sincerely apologize for making you deal with someone you find so stupid and lazy.

    That said, of course I've exposed those avenues.

    I make approximately $2800 per month usually, unless I can get some OT. My expenses including food and all come to about $2500 per month. I literally cannot afford to give away any money to an insurance company for a plan that won't do me any good anyhow because the deductible is half of my yearly income.
