Title: How Does The Dude Make a Living?
Post by: Turtle on June 04, 2008, 04:21:12 AM
Just wondering coz I happen to be unemployed myself, how exactly does the Dude pay his rent, and buy beers and caucasions, etc, etc.

I could use some financial advice here, Dude-style.

Legend has it that in the early drafts of the script the Dude was the heir to the Rubic's Cube fortune. The Coens dropped that later, however.

I myself dabbled in coasting along like the Dude does at one point. Not in 'Nam, of course.

actually the other day i had an epiphany, a business idea came to me, a solid idea, i made a business plan, got most of the website done, but still need a partner or investor to help with the startup or, if partner, then the long term.

i'm broke.

but anyway, i know if i will it, it is no dream.

Dudes income...

Unemployment checks, supplying his buds with the sacred herb, part time work for Walter, Speed of Sound Tour (bunch of assholes), Bowling tournaments, ripping off and reselling rugs...it all adds up to the rent. Just slip it under the door.

Well, you have to actually file to be eligible for the "economic stimulus package."  I'm not sure how that works if you don't file.  I have a friend who owed some money and they still haven't gotten their check yet because Uncle Sam was waiting until they paid up what they owed first.

Easy, he's The Dude. Wouldn't you wanna give him a $20 bill or a couple of pieces of eight out of your stash?
