I don't know why everyone gets all upset, my landlord said I could pay with karma, as long as it's good. Maybe you guys should just ask.

Maybe we could set up a whole new karma currency system where if we work for someone they could just give us karma. Of course we'd need a way to denote how much we got. Maybe pieces of paper with some preassigned amounts on them, which we could then pass on to people who work for us. Oh no, wait that's already been done... it's called cash.

* no -- it's NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests
* Compensation: cash is karma


Props to this guy. Experience and "good karma" is nice and all, but at the end of the day, there are bills to be paid.
