    Well, holding your pee (especially after a few babies...) leads to bladder infections, and that can lead to kidney infections...and I've only got the one... so like, I don't wanna die from holding my pee. Seems like a stupid way to go.
    She'll repost it, I'm sure.

    Why is the 3 cents Ben Peterson HITs asking me to rate guys without asking for my gender or preferences first?

    I keep thinking that I should just do .01 batches to get to the larger numbers. But than I do 1 of them and spend more time than a .20 HIT.

    Technically I started doing HITs about a year ago.

    No tickets, I am confused on who needs to win the game since I am from San Diego.

    That's just an example of the past few hours. Daytime, non-Sunday, non-post-Holiday weekend, I'm sure there's tons more.

    You are absolutely right that a lot of them are rubbish. Then there are ones that are super quick. Also, getting those numbers(# HITs approved) up there will hopefully make you more likely to be able toparticipate in better batches. But, with lower numbers, your options are limited. Not that they're any better for anyone with better numbers, at the moment, but # of HITs approved is probably the second most used qualification, after location. It's like if you already know how to do a job but, have no experience. They want to see practical time "behind the wheel". Think of it like a lightly paid internship. I'm not saying do stuff that's severely underpaid but, we've all done things that we could consider a sacrifice of money for experience(qualifications, numbers, scripting, learning). If you think of turking more like a job that can grow with you, the numbers feel like they have more significance. If you think of it like a job that you just learn and then know, without the growth and practice(which you get from batches), a lot of people find that their income potential plateaus as well.

    These also take less than 5 seconds...

    I got rejected on this HIT. I emailed her right away after I did it because I was confused. She rejected it anyway and replied with, "You didn’t label the second article, I sorry that I cannot approve your assignment." grrrr.
