> I use poisonous things to look for less poisonous things in more poisonous things.
What about you anon?
I do an up and down motion while grabbing a horse's dick
I work for the government
I use a computer
I tell idiots how not to fuck themselves
i gather data from different departments and put them into graphs of red and green so that the board of directors can understand if we're doing good or bad.
actually, that's a pretty accurate description of my job.
> I deal with shit going wrong all day because my company wont invest the money needed to mitigate them. I then make pretty graphs to show over paid business people how everything is going wrong.
And Excel. but yea, pretty much.
i'm technically a data analyst at a hospital, and I get about 40 dashboards with regulatory and compliance data that i have to organize for presentation to the Board, along with interpreting monthly state and federal metrics.
i really do love my job.
I fly big-ass show kites at festivals, fairs and shit. One of the kites in this picture is mine. My other stuff is not up yet.

He doesnt say cut people off, he says "closes doors. Bus drivers trying to stay on schedule close the doors instead of wait for people running for the bus and move on down the road -- where they sit at the next red light.
Not particularly good money, and only a very few of us make money at all. But the benefits, in terms of travel and such, are good.
To make money, you have to be selling or demoing for somebody. There are a few sport-kite teams that are sponsored by Redbull the like.
Ok that's fair, I don't have tons of cash because there's too much cool shit at fairs and conventions. My life is a revolving door of swords, my new laser etching machine and shiny shit.
i cater to the spoiled/wealthy while risking my life for the minimum wage from 9-5
Pretty much this in a nutshell. It's not hard to read people. Just apply that to some mystisim and a specific medium (hands, cards, stones whatever.) I've watched people 'read fortunes' with fucking forks before.
Got a deck of playing cards? Just pull 3 out, or better yet. Don't and understand that even if my 'powers' were real nothing I say tends to have any real consequence on people.
So close but I guess it's my destiny to make da pizza. I am the light in the darkness. The gateway between safety and starvation. I'm a lite sauce guardian. The restaurant needs me, I'm the hero it deserves. I am

Do what I have my clients do, shuffle your deck 3 times. Split it 3 times, then flip over the card on the top of each stack. Let me know what they are, your earlier trips demand a reading.
>then is it your only source of money?
Me, yeah, if you count what I get for selling the things as well as flying them.
Even then, my wife makes more than me -- but I get us more free trips, either through getting her n the team for an event or just racking up air miles.
Close enough, I'm an Astronomy professor.
Ill make it a bit more easier.
I go up with a lot of people by pressing a lot of buttons and talking to people that control where we go however theres someone in the same workspace that can do things equally as good as me
I pick things up and put them down
I write down what some guy tells in a room every day, then every few weeks I have to write to the dude what he has been saying, then eventually it's summer and I needn't anymore.
Temptation? You're off the beaten bath on decks that for sure, 8-bit or something I'm guessing? Either way.
Strength shows someone who's been through many struggles, many of which haven't been physical. It's required through your life (but especially recently) for you to be patient. You've learned the hard way that such a beast is better at your side than slain. Keep working on this, this card shows up when this sort of mental fortitude and patience is a struggle, but eventually you'll win out over the beast that makes such a thing difficult.
Temptation shows me that right now you've kind of locked yourself in your own bindings. You know that there's something wrong going on, it's a big issue in your life but at the end of the day you and you alone hold the key to escaping it. I think this ties well into the strength card. It says to me that you haven't had enough fortitude to escape this situation and now you feel trapped. You know at the end of the day you're the only one with the power to fix it but it's still a struggle feeling all that weight pulling you down. Just remember, anon. You've got the key to unlock yourself from such bindings. The devil loves it when we cloth ourselves in shackles freely.
As far as the high priestess goes, your future. It's one of mystery, and leads me to believe you're at a heavy crossroads in your life. You're unsure of what path you need to walk down to escape Temptation and continue growing in Strength, but the High Priestess is letting you know that a decision -will- be made. She's a symbol of mystery and one we only overcome when we go on that inward journey to accept things we otherwise wouldn't want to. So keep working on your struggles, understand that time and acceptance, and a bit of action will help to free you from the issues plaguing your life. And know that greater things come down the road -if- you take that action.
I hate to break this to you and shatter your perception of all mediums but...NO FUCKING SHIT. I stated earlier even if you believe someone has 'powers' the ability to read people when you're right infront of them is not that hard at all.
The problem comes when you say something stupid, it ends up being right and they break down crying. I fucking hate that.
I tell assholes who don't know what they're doing how to use things they don't need to fuck up what they were told to do by someone whose language they don't speak for more money than I'll ever get paid.
Always. It can help open you up to things you wouldn't normally look at either. I ride in the middle personally. If you work the circuit a lot of people will tell you that you're a psychic through and through. I try not to believe too much in that because at the day you're trying to give people direction in their lives. Sometimes just giving them good direction is better than what you're gut might tell you.
Seriously, I do. I charge 10$ for a 1 card reading at my table. 20$ for 3. It takes maybe 10min max for a 3 card reading. I always get big tips, and in the time of my career have had ONE person tell me I was wrong.
Other people take different things and put them together and sell them to me. I remove some of their work, the sell the remaining to other people for more money. Then those people stick my work in the ground for even more money.
I normally go and hug them honestly. Quick story.
Lady comes to the castle I'm working at during a show, she wants a 1 card reading. There's no family or friends with her...she looks kind of lonely and pretty sad. She draws a single card called "The Hanged Man".
I tell her about how she had some news come to her, something she just has to accept. The wheel of fate is turning and there's nothing she can do to escape this hurdle in her life. I apologize to her and tell her that she'll have to keep moving forward for her own sake because I know this will be a struggle.
She breaks down sobbing telling me she was just diagnosed with cancer, it's bad, and she's not sure if she wants to go through with treatment. She hasn't told her family.
I just held her for a while...there's nothing else you can do, you're there to help people, to ease their fears and guide them. I don't feel like I did that well then.
