DIY Project: A Garden Fish Tank
Aquaponics is a system for the sustainable production of food that combines aquaculture (raising of fish, crayfish, talapia or shrimp in tanks) with hydroponics (the cultivation of plants in water with no soil).
This is a symbiotic relationship because the plants and fish both benefit from living together. The plant’s roots clean the water of ammonia and toxins, which helps the fish - while the fish provide the plants with nutrients, which are obtained from the fish pee and poop, as well as from ammonia excreted from the fish gills.

So stop working at mcdonalds and do something with your life.
Sure! I’ll just reach into my ass and pull out a job! Or, how about I go down to jobland, where jobs grow on jobbies!
Strap on your job helmet and get in the job cannon
Go get some marketable skills then.
Whoever told you finding a job will be easy is a liar; however with some forward planning, tenacity and practice it’s definitely possible.
If you don’t want to put in effort over a reasonably long time to give YOURSELF a leg up in life, then McHappy day to you.
You are either very lucky or in for a very rude awakening some time later on
