    Yeah think marc meant maybe 500/ month...Unless one of his OTHER jobs was a gigolo.. farm would be nice and acreage is def on the cards.. al least the pain you cause is from working on something of your own and not working on something to benifit others.

    I think we are going a little off track and I know I am partially responsible with a couple of my posts but saying that I think we should get back to the OP question which I think has been answered complete with all the up and down side to it.

    There's too many of the bastards... cafes in every corner... selling their overpriced average food and fancy coffees ... and young people can't afford houses ...

    Although id have the business sense to properly run one well - I'd hate the pompous and arrogant cbd customers with their "vintage" outfits or $10000 Armani suits & iltalian leather shoes

    Yes ... I see.
    It's a fact that young people will never be able to afford houses if they think that those who achieve are bastards and they owe them.
    Marxism does not work and will never work because we are individuals.
    When you learn to see Armani suit owners as potential tickets to your house you will work your way towards your goals.
    Hate and name calling will only produce bitterness and resentment and enlist you with the big crowd of victims.
    Your choice.
