I just seen this post so...if you want to strip wire, don't. Just melt the insulation off. That's what I used to do.


iver thought about that. going to every house and ask for a dollar. i figured by the end of the day you would have a couple hundred, but i never tried it.


Don't forget the family members. When I was younger, that's what me and my buddies used to do to get enough money to rent video games. I asked Mom, then Dad, then Grandpa...

It would definitely be worth the trip to a farm to ask for a job, even if the farm isn't necessarily close to you. I help out on a farm every once in a while and it is a very good job.

The only bad thing about working on a farm is that some of the work is hard (stacking hay and straw) and the barn is very hot in the summer. (when it is 90 degrees outside, it's around 110 degrees inside)


Have you ever stacked on the wagon when bailing? Yes, stacking in the loft is very very hot! Plus the hay sticks all over you because of sweating profusly. The loft is the hardest to deal with, I've seen guys drop from the heat, didn't drink enough water.

2nd hardest job, cleaning stalls! 3rd, moving cows. 4th, planting crops. I have to say, all in all farm work is good for the soul!

Now, I'm not 16 until this June, so I can't get a job.

I don't know about you, but these two seem disjoint to me - if you're only 15, are you even legally allowed to buy fireworks?

I couldn't do it until I was 18, and fortunately for mankind, I was over my pyromania by then - or else, Judge's stunt in Kentucky would have been seriously small game.

Technically the states are supposed to monitor who buys fireworks according to state law. In reality no ones cares. Buy whatever you want and have fun.

It's kinda like the "we only sell tobacco to those who are over 18" signs :D

Hmm, that's an unfortunate attitude, given that well over half of fireworks deaths are (regrettably) people under the legal purchase age.

I agree. Most of the time my boss stays on the ground taking the bales from the wagon and putting them on the elevator, and he has me up in the loft stacking them once they come off the elevator. I have gotten pretty dehydrated while working up there, most of the time I drink about 1 gallon of water an hour to keep from dryin' up.

I've never stacked the wagon while bailing because the bailer automatically throws the bales up into the wagon, but I can imagine how hard that would be, especially when you are moving the whole time.

[/Hijack], lol. Like I said, the nearest farm is probably 100 miles away. I am in SEATTLE people. Btw, it is perfectly legal to purchase fireworks with an adult present, no matter what your age is. In Washington the purchasing age is 16. And no, I don't do stupid things with fireworks like launch them at people. And I am going to a lake, where it is perfectly legal to shoot them. That said, I do know somebody with a large yard and a bunch of apple trees. Maybe I could ask if there is anything I can do. It would be a start. Lol, there is a generous guy I know at church who gave me $20 to buy mother's day flowers. I told him I would get him the money next week, but he said "Nah, don't worry about it. I made a bunch of money recently, and I would forget by then anyways." Cool guy. I suppose I could politely ask him for some.
