This thread will be about my journey to the million dollar comic and the struggles, failures and successes that come with it since many boardies requested it I will not longer post my transactions but try what revat said :). I also have a bunch of inspirational people two of them being Walt Disney and Steve Jobs because I want to be the next rags to riches story not to the degree of Steve Jobs or Walt Disney but I want to make a million dollars buying and selling a comic and making enough money with this venture to never again say I can't afford something :)

 

Thoughts and plans

Sell my comics

Sell IH 180 CGC 5.0

 

Milestones I want to reach

Have you bothered to look into to see how much you have actually put into crypto? I'm not asking what your profit is, just, say, over the last year how much have you "invested"?

The interest rate on the card doesn't apply anymore but it used to be 26%. I now get charged $1.30 every day in interest.

Well, we do know he's investing $1.30 per day into his debt spiral.

Can any of you Mathletes figure out Gabe's principal if he's paying charged $1.30 a day in interest?

Assuming it really is a flat $1.30 per day (which seems highly dubious):

(1.3 x 365) / 2800 = appx 16.94%

But my guess would be the daily interest figure is slowly rising to $1.31 and beyond as the calendar turns since the tacked on interest would obviously also accumulate interest as it goes unpaid.  I can't imagine the card company (or debt collector) would just say "OK, we'll charge you a flat $1.30 per day on your debt."  It makes no sense from their perspective, or from the consumer's (assuming said consumer ever makes an attempt to pay their debt down).

If I were the caseworker on his disability case, I would award him full benefits....this based on what I've read thus far. But with a stipulation that he cannot possess any firearms :insane:

I had to come back and wonder if this seemingly innocuous statement was indicative of your mindset towards life in general...

Not only has QuadrigaCX filed for protection from its creditors, but chatter is starting to mount that they never had many of the assets that they claimed to (including the claimed cold storage wallets to which the password was allegedly lost). Some are going as far as suggesting that the company's owner faked his own death in India in order to try and skate out of this jam. 

"It's all good"?  Not so much.

please @uchiha101 liquidate your bitcoin holding no matter how little or how much and put it all down on your outstanding credit card balance so you can get a guaranteed 16.9 % return

How does the interest rate not apply anymore? As minimum payments go by unpaid, the debt gets larger and are you not then paying interest on the higher debt load?   Even if what you say is true ($1.30 every day) you are looking at approximately $500 interest added onto your debt load per year, but I suspect it is more than that. 

If your case worker and everyone here is telling you to start or figure out a way to start paying it, maybe you should take that advice.

Yes, I mean the fact that you don't have a regular source of income. 

Now you reveal one of the reasons why you stopped selling was that you didn't have enough money to ship things?  Dude, if you can't afford to ship things (don't buyers pay shipping), you are clearly doing this wrong and need a J-O-B.

You need to realize you cannot "compartmentalize" your financial life. It does not work that way. The banks, creditors, landlords, prospective employers, heck your prospective buyers and consignors are not going to trust a guy like you or give a rats arse if your "up" $5 in crypto but you are in debt, have no job or means to support yourself and giving a big "FU" to institutions you signed a legal agreement with because YOU feel slighted/wronged.

You seem to blame a lot of people for your problems, both your employers, financial institutions, your parents...I don't doubt that you have issues that are contributing to your woes but I also get the sense you would be very difficult to manage, maybe that is part of your issues. I don't know.  I think everyone here would be happier to hear about what you are trying to do to better yourself, looking into what mental health resources you can potentially access, your journey to seek help and become self-sufficient instead of your dealings in crypto, comics and online sex games with your zombie wife.

26% Does and will still apply Gabe. And acrues daily, certainly not just a 1.30 a day.

You know I come onto this journal every now and again hoping that Gabe has at least gotten onto a better path.

I cant for the life of me understand the disrespect you give to your parents, they loved and raised you. They gave you a place to live, food on your table, and clothes on your back.

You have have to own the mistakes you've made in life. You obviously have no respect for authority figures, such as bosses that may hire you. I mean really you wont smile for a customer? if your boss tells you to? You wont do anything that you dont want to? 

I have done/ still do many things that I didnt want to because I had to put food on my table, and pay my bills. there's no shame in working for something for a greater good. 

I certainly hope you open your eyes soon for your own benefit.

My guess is immaturity.  When I was a teenager I thought I was god's gift to life, that I knew everything there is to know, that my parents were insufficiently_thoughtful_persons, and that all they wanted to do was harsh my good time.  Then I went to college and learned 1) I'm nobody 2) I know less than 0.001% of what is out there to know and that there are billions of people with WAY more knowledge than I will ever have, and that I should listen to everyone I meet to learn from them 3) That my parents ARE insufficiently_thoughtful_persons (because we all are) but that they have decades of experience and wisdom that I do not yet posses, and to learn from them and 4) that my parents aren't trying to arbitrarily be pains.  Rather, they see issues/problems/pitfalls that I am too young/stupid/inexperienced/blind to see and they are just trying to protect me and push me in the right direction.  Sometimes they are pushing me in a direction I don't agree with, not because they hate me, but rather because they made those same mistakes and know the pain it causes and are trying to spare me it.  5) (and most important)  For everything I have accomplished, all the hard work I have put in, the thousands and thousands of hours spent becoming the success I am today, I DID NOT DO IT ALONE.  I stand on the shoulders of greatness.  I stand on a mountain of sacrifices, tradeoffs, and the sleepless nights of others.  I respect that.  I appreciate that.  And then I ask myself, if THEY were willing to do all of that for me, why should I be so proud to think similar things are beneath me?  To have the hubris to think that I am better that that job, or that I know better than my boss etc.  

I truly hope something kicks Gabe in the butt and wakes him up.  I know we joked earlier about Gabe and the military, but honestly that might be something that helps him.  He needs a sense of purpose, drive, organization, and hard work.  I really hope he finds it.

Maybe I should give this guy some comics too.

2) I sell the item for exactly what you ask and anything that it sells over that becomes my commission. For example, The sale total is $1200 and it sells for $1400 you will get $1200 and I keep the $200 as the commission.

So instead of consigning with a reputable seller and getting $1260 on this $1400 sale example, I can give my book to some random with 148 eBay feedback and get $1200 instead?  Yo, sign me up!!  :banana:

Is this what Gabe is involved with?

He said no when I asked, but we haven't heard from him in several days, so I'm starting to wonder.  But he could just be immersed in online zombie sex with his dwarf girlfriend.
