money investment
    #2548750 - 04/11/04 03:55 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Hello my friends !

If you had like 50-100 dolars what would you do with it ?

I was thinking about some kind of investment . Does someone have an idea ??? And i mean legal stuff ... I know i could make good money with my shrooms ( nobody can get this stuff here and nobody knows how to grow it , well in my place ... ) , but this is illegal here and i don't want any trouble ...

Here are some of my ideas ... I was thinking about making a small rabbit farm , my dad has allready some rabbits , the price for a young guy is about 10 dolars ... If everything goes fine , i should get about 7-10 little fellas in one birth ( i hope you know what i mean , sorry for my bad english ) and that is something like 70-100 dolars ... And all i have to buy is just a female rabbit ... ( food and other stuff isn't the problem becose i allready have the stuff needed )

What do you think about that ? Can you share some of your ideas and thoughts ?
:wexican:

sounds like a good idea... but I'd check out some rabbit farming message boards before buying, just to get an overview of the process and see if you really want to get into it... I know theres a place just like this for rabbit farmers, i stumbled onto it once when i was looking for something else

Yeah ... But its not a that big risk becose my dad allready has some rabbits , so if it wouldn't work i can just give her to my dad or someone , or sell her ... I actualy cant lose much ...

Maybe ill try this out ... What are your ideas ?

i think that's absolutely horrible. it's very upsetting to think that you can just give away innocent animal lives to make profit for yourself. that's ridiculous. i guess humans will never be able to evolve if they keep the idea that using another life for their own profit is considered a good idea.

Sorry Delyrium...

While I can understand and respect your feelings, I don't think it's right to lay a guilt trip on others.

I am an animal lover, but I am also a carnivore (well... omnivore really). In the wild, animals are eaten by other animals and the lives (and deaths) of these beasts are often more distressing than what they would experience in a humane, well managed farm.

People who raise animals in cruel conditions just for profit (battery hen farmers, etc...) deserve that swipe. 'Sporting shooters' who kill with no intention of eating also annoy me...

If you wouldn't condemn a lion for eating meat, I don't think it's fair to condemn a human either... By all means, make people aware of alternative diets and expose cruel farming practices, but you shouldn't make value judgements or assumptions about other people just because they don't share your personal beliefs.

this is not about eating meat - this is about raising rabbits for profit. i think it's horrible that just for extra cash you are willing to raise rabbits and sell them off for what? A house pet (which most of the time are neglected), food or fur (even angora rabbits suffer HORRIBLY).

I just think that there are better ways to make money than to use another animal's life for profit. This isn't about eating meat. I never demand that people stop eating meat - I just like to give the facts to them when questioned...

however - nothing in my post in THIS thread refered to meat eating - and I didn't make a value judgement based on that.

    #2550788 - 04/12/04 12:03 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

then what are you going to breed them for?

i do not live in Croatia - so I don't know what type of opportunities you have there as far as making money goes. Personally - by taking that money - putting it in a bank - and saving up more until you get enough to put into a COD - that's a wise money investment option.

you do realize that if you breed these rabbits - you are only supporting something that is highly unnatural. You are forcing them to become more dependent on humans. If you sell these animals - you don't really know who you're selling them to. It could be a LOVELY family of course - but at the same time - most people buy them because they are cute and they end up neglecting these animals and they end up being depressed and lonely. That's no way to live. Another customer might just use them for fur - you know - it only takes 1 rabbit to make 8 cat toys. It takes another rabbit to make 2 fur cuffs.

If you really love animals - and this is just a suggestion - take your money and use it for the better. Why not take in a sick animal? It's a lot of work but highly rewarding. My mother took in two sick rats and they are the SWEETEST things in the world. I never imagined rats could be so loving and affectionate - they give the sweetest kisses and have not even tried to bite us once.

I know I'm going off here however - breeding an animal does not help them. You need to give them the proper diet, sheltering and medical care - that will probably cost you more than you were planning to spend.

get the rabbits and make cat toys out of them, then sell the cat toys.  You'd make a killing. :smirk:

ya sure - marriage is not killing. i'm pretty positive in all cultures - murder is not accepted. my manager is actually from croatia - right off the boat - we call him the croatian sensation. he's awesome - i should ask him what his views are.
