The Pub / Odd Ways You Never Thought to Make Money
« on: March 12, 2010, 09:48:19 AM »
Sitting here, I sometimes feel like I've been living the typical American middle class life - you know, get born, go to school, go to college, get that job, work hard at it and move up through the ranks, get married, have a kid, yada yada yada.

But one of the things that fascinates me is the various surprising things people make into the "job" that makes them more than just a salaryman's dues, like the guy who built up the company that does porto-potties in your area.

In that vein what are some odd ones that surprised you to find out "people can make a living doing that?"

Here's my example - these guys "Two Steps from Hell" - their job? They make music exclusively for video games and movie trailers. Odds are good you've heard them and never known it. (And none of their music is released to the public either - although that should be changing soon)

All Things Food / Marmite
« on: February 10, 2010, 01:44:53 AM »
Having just finished a butter and Marmite sandwich with a beer chaser, I gots to wondering two things:

1) Am I one of like 3 Americans who really likes Marmite? It's weird, it's sticky and man is it strong, but yet, yum.

2) Aside from the super traditional butter and marmite toast or sandwich - what else can be done with this stuff? I dare suspect that this has some potent vegetarian applications in terms of supplying the "umami" factor in a dish.
