Since all the money goes to fancy new projectors, there wasn’t a ton of cash leftover for essential repairs. Corey dealt with this pretty much nightly.

“We never repaved our lot,” Jillian explained. “I don’t know when it was last paved, but it’s crunched to gravel. Some deep holes formed, and when it was still muddy I had angry moms and dads come and tell me that their car was stuck in the parking lot because it was in the mud puddle. Our fix for that was a bag of Quikrete and we were told to dump it where we needed it most. It lasted into the summer and over the next year that was our solution.”

Drive-ins age just like people: They refuse to change their ways and start physically falling apart.

“Our projection booth was also in bad shape,” she continued. “It was built in the 40’s when the rest of it was, but it hadn’t been touched since. Pieces of it had fallen out, and when I worked there, the holes were so big that we had to take out birds nests every few weeks. We had one bird who attacked families watching a movie on the grass, and they came from one of these holes. They still haven’t been fixed.”

On the plus side: Super authentic showings of Hitchcock’s The Birds.

Sorry if this isn't the right place to ask but what are money lobbies?

exactly what it sounds like – a lobby people are in specifically for making gold

i’ve never ran into a random one myself, but i know people set them up with their friends to repeatedly ink over each others ink to rack up those points and make the $$$$$

@genghis-khanye: china already owns all our good real estate, our minerals

I’ve said this a few times before, but if another country buys your land, you now have their money and your land is still exactly where it was before. They can’t physically tow it away to China, you know. Even owning mines just means handing over a ton of cash for a piece of paper that says “yeah we totally own this mine”.

Sure there are downsides to property investment, but it’s important to remember that they can’t actually take anything away.

Y’know, you don’t have to reach common life goals if you don’t want to.

You don’t have to have a house if you don’t want to.

You don’t have to have a car if you don’t want to.

You don’t need to start a family if you don’t want to.

You don’t have to have a job that earns you a ton of cash if you don’t need it.

After saving a particular planet or two they were given a ton of cash in return for their efforts. Allura holds onto most of it and gives each paladin an allowance for personal spending money. the amount of stuff they have collected has gone up since.

I can just imagine Lance getting it into his head to decorate the castle, disliking its lack of color and the others totally gong along with it.

For the ask meme: how was your birthday?

It was amazing. Tons of cash, a ring and free Pepsi. How much better can it get? The only downside was my lil get together was cancelled, but that’s ok.

ok guys i know ppl are always sharing this shit and it like never works, but this is literally the only rewards site i’ve ever found that actually makes you a decent amount of money. and i’ve never seen anyone talk about it on here. i’ve gotten tons of amazon gift cards through this since i signed up over a year ago. i have the app and i just let videos play while i’m doing other stuff to gain swagbucks. and the peanut labs surveys are really good. the gold surverys almost never work. you don’t get much from each search on the search engine (and the searches only give you sb every now and then), but if you use it instead of google it adds up. and you can get cash back too. i’ve got tons of it from shopping on amazon using the gift cards i got on here, actually. so just try it out and if you like it share it and you can earn swagbucks for each person who you refer.
