"To echo something Rebekah said, get a suit or something that will aid with job interviews. Won't last indefinitely but it's a good investment and if you take care of a suit, even of middling quality, it will last."
"A leatherman is always a good investment, and i would go with the Kick model. All the functionality you could ever want.
Although it wont get you all the way, $100 will go a fair ways on a well-fitted suit jacket. Custom tailoring is recommended,…"
"If you look around you should be able to get a Mosin-Nagant (Russian military bolt action rifle) for about 100. They're beautiful, rugged, and dirt cheap. The ammo is a bit more but that's a problem for another day. As a bonus you could…"

"There is no correct Spanish.
Every Central American I've ever know has told me Mexican's don't speak clean spanish
Every South American I've ever known has told me no Central American Speaks clean spanish
No Caribbean speaks…"
"I am a fluent Spanish speaker; however, the Spanish I learned is that spoken in Lima, Peru where I grew up as a missionary kid over fifty years ago.
