I have a friend who lives near GRR so i always fly into it. I went to a hackerspace there that blew my mind!! I think this is it: https://wiki.hackerspaces.org/The_Geek_Group

Would you say then, that not voting = not caring?

My gripe with what you said before is that i could not care and vote, and i could care and not vote. There doesn't seem to be any causation. There might be a correlation but I don't know of any evidence for or against, and I think setting up a study like this would be difficult.

How is voting proof of caring? It's it possible for someone to vote but not care?

Here is another way to get rid of passwords:

A similar question i always had in regards this the minimum wage increase is: Won't the employers that now have to pay their employees more just fire their current employees and hire employees that are worth more?

If the price of goods increases relative to the increase in minimum wage than the "living wage" won't be a living wage and the minimum wage increase would have been for moot. It has to be an economic decision first, otherwise the ethical portion of it doesn't exist.

I'm 22. Too all the people in this tread that are similar age, I empathize 100%.

About a year ago I quit my job of 2 years because I hated it, I had no plans, and probably 3 months of savings. I had a ton of anxiety when I made the decision to quit but one thought kept creeping back into my mind. When I'm on my death bed looking back, will I be proud of this moment? Will I be happy that I worked my 9-5 job that I hated? So I said Fuck it, and left.

5 months later and almost out of money a friend of mine who owns a Tech company posts on Facebook that he is looking for a Technician that knows Linux servers. Now first of all, I hadn't talked to this friend in probably over a year, and when I did see him it was 3 times a year. Second, yeah I run Linux (xUbuntu) on my Desktop but I barely knew the command line, and never worked with a server. But I got the job because he knew that teaching me would be easy and it was my attitude that would make me a great employee.

So to Outset and all the others in that are in a rough patch in their life. Ask yourself "How will I feel about this moment when I'm looking back from my death bed?" If you get an unfavourable answer, leave the reasons why you can't do something behind and change something NOW! No matter the outcome you won't look back and think "Too bad I tried to change the crap situation I was in."
