This is a little eye opener for those of you guys in the US, UK, Australia about what blackhatting means for us here. Most of the journeys I've read tells of people earning at least $100.00 per day. That 100 dollars could literally feed a family for a month or two in my country. I've seen impoverished families having a meal of soysauce and cooking oil mixed with some rice every day. Actually the minimum wage here is around 10 dollars per day. So you could see why some people from where I come from would go nuts at the opportunity of earning 100 dollars per day. Around 80 percent of our population lives on a 250 - 300 dollars per month wage. Most are below the poverty line. To break it down a little bit more a monthly budget of a "2 children + wife + husband" family would come down to: 50 dollars for rent 5 dollars per day on food (round 120 per month) 1 dollar per day for the kid's allowance to school that's round 40 per month 5 dollars for transportation to work 10 dollars for the water bill 10 dollars for electricity ---------------------------------------------- TOTAL OF: 235 dollars That's without any medicines and they're still probably in debt and that debt adds up per month quickly. If your lucky to have a minimum wage job. We have very high unemployment rates. So guys when some of us from third world countries are asking for help please remember what I told you in the paragraph above. They're trying to earn money to keep their family sheltered, educated and fed. They're most probably not trying to earn for a luxury, they're trying to earn to get by. They are most probably getting acces to Internet Shacks that rent out Internet Access for round 45 Cents per hour. I'm lucky enough to be in a middle income family which is barely 30 percent of the population. Actually my family is still in a bit of a binge since we're several thousand dollars in debt. Along with the fact that I'm trying to start a family with my gf. That's why I try to help those Indian guys with horrible grammar. I try to push them in the right direction as much as I can. I can feel them. Some BHW members are from Africa, Vietnam, etc. also. Actually we make up a lot of the percentage of Noobs in BHW. They're the guys asking, in poor English, how to make a quick buck. Probably not out of laziness but out of desperation. I'm not saying that there aren't lazy couch potatoes among us but in general we're just trying to make out a living. So try to be patient with us. We're just trying to earn a living, just like you. Thanks to the many Vets who are kind enough to answer some of my questions. And to those guys in the Journey threads that are inspiring me to push on. (Exit with Sad Violin Music in the Background. Light fades. Black) Seriously though. BHW's giving me hope. I hope to start a journey thread after I've absorbed more of the knowledge and wisdom that BHW is giving. My initial target won't be that big: round 10 dollars per day. Don't worry I won't be posting "How to earn 100 dollars per day?" . BHW's flooded with that already. Will be lurking a bit longer but hopefully I'll be posting a thread to help others in a months or so.
