    Is there any evidence Gene has EVER had a job? What about in the 1990s? And what was Barbara's job?

    Yes his main job in the 1990s was berating people on various early online forums and on usenet. I think professional troll is a good description. He loves boasting about the "things" he has - gadgets, cars and the like. He enjoys looking down on people who make the "mistake" of living within their means.

    From all we know he has never really had a "proper" job which would explain why he is so terrified by the suggestion of doing one.

    Steinberg hasn’t worked a proper “real” job in close to 40 years. That’s why he gets frightened when you mention getting real work. He has virtually no skills to speak of. Can you imagine some 70 year old guy taking orders from someone in their 20s? He wouldn’t last a day. Better in his mind to beg and send out annoying emails to everyone and panhandle for money.

    I believe that Barbara was the person who burned your scrambled eggs at McDonalds.

    Why get a job when you can get people to send you money to exist on. By all accounts, Barbara is a barely functioning human.

    I've just read Gene's latest plea for assistance and am unclear on one point. Perhaps someone can shed some light on this.

    Does Gene have to pay the motel by 11 AM (Arizona time) or be put out on the street? I'm just curious because he doesn't say in the begging email and how else would we know if doesn't specifically tell us.

    It's noteworthy to me he's crying about "facing disconnects, cancellations and more". Those sound like first world problems, to quote a phrase. They don't really stir any fears in me on Gene's account.

    When will he be back to talking about "keeping a roof over his head"? And I'm surprised we've yet to hear any fears for the car (which I think is leased?) being repo'd. And what about the storage space with his lifetime of possessions?

    If I am remembering correctly, Gene once told Jeff Ritzmann he was fired from his last job for asking a co-worker for a loan.

    I do not know when that would have been, or what the job might have been.

    He was cranking out lame "for dummies" kinda books in the late 90s I believe but that ran out of steam sometime in the early 00s. That whole market could have changed, for all I know. He was also writing for Stereo Review or some other audiophile magazine in the '90s. So I think he got into some, make a living as a writer phase then - writing those 'how to' books, writing for one or more magazines, and of course founding that Rockoids empire. But that activity seems behind him now. And I'll say, probably tough for anyone to make and keep making a living doing that kind of writing, I imagine it's a hustle, especially as one gets into their 70s. Gene just refuses to be realistic about, well, anything, and has never had a qualm about asking for handouts, so here we are.

    The only disconnect here is the one between Gene's failing brain and reality.
