Volunteering might not work out for me right this moment. I've done shifts at habit for humanity a few times, but they don't usually take volunteers these days, they're mostly taking on people doing court mandated community service.

Become a pr0n star. Make sure to always demand cash only and always use a fake name never your real name. Never give them your SSN. Otherwise you will never get hired again.

When you say "dapper p0rn", am I the only one who thinks of a monocle and top hat wearing British guy going at it? "I say, this is proving a most enjoyable experience, wouldn't you say so, madam?"
