    There was this big thing in chat and another thread a year ago about how it's perfectly okay for food stamp recipients to spend their entire monthly funds on stuff like a single lobster dinner and 5$ up scale fancy bottled water.

    The Windies are the colloquial name for the West Indies, a team now sadly in the doldrums but who once bestrode the cricketing world like a colossus, scaring the living shit out of batsman the world over (one of them was nicknamed Whispering Death) with terrifying fast bowling and bullying bowlers out of the park with the likes of the majestic Sir Vivian Richards.

    I hate people like this. The thing is, she probably isn't even poor, but just super entitled.

    The time she actually paid, she used food stamps :?

    Can you even give refunds on those?

    It's wasteful and unhealthy. Soda, candy, cupcakes, cookies... none of these should be available for purchase. Toothpaste, diapers, toilet paper, and ziplock bags, on the other hand, should be.

    Also I can got to a local farmers market, get a ton of good veggies and a bill that is no more than twenty bucks. Toss that in a stew with some cheap meat, and bingo you got food for a week.

    The issue is not that bad food is cheaper, its that people don't want to eat what you need to eat when you don't have the money to spend on the nicer things in life.

    Sheep how much gameplay does E.Y.E. have for someone with a short attention span that only tends to make it through games once? Infinite Re playability means fuck all for me. I like a nice long game because I'm probably only going to play it once.

    I just got invited to an impromptu bachelor party tonight. Hm. I don't really see these people very often anymore and wasn't invited to their wedding that is this Sunday (that was about the time when I shrugged and already had other friend groups). Debating going for drinks.

    I think my ex-fiance will be there as she has just flown in from New York. We talk all the time but maybe I don't want to see her since I just started dating someone after 2 years of not calling a lady my girlfriend. Or I could bring my new girlfriend.

    Or... I could play magic and deus ex. Hmmm.

    I'm a published writer and have a very unique and interesting writing style. I'm also sharp and witty. My profile is well-written and hilarious. My messages are likewise brilliant. And I've been doing this stuff for...four or five years. I know what "works" in terms of good internet dating writing. "Works" in the sense of leading to a "date" with a human female.

    I can't imagine how terrifying it must have been to face the likes of Curtly Ambrose, Courtney Walsh, Malcolm Marshall and Michael "Whispering Death" Holding back in their prime.

    I mean, look at this. Ambrose breaks Geoff Lawson's jaw here. You'd feel like you were facing a firing squad.

    For me, my current experience with EYE is basically load it up, do something, and then die. You keep your XP and the like, and depending on the death, you might instantly be revived.

    It's a pretty difficult game. I've heard it's 20 or so hours long. It has a Borderlands like jump in/jump out persistent multiplayer, and that's what I've been doing lately.

    Tons of gameplay, though, because often times I round a corner, see a shit ton of turrets and baddies and die. Then I resurrect and instead hack the turrets and the PC and overload it all Deus Ex style and kill everyone with their own weapons.

    There's also that neat power that lets you telefrag into someone.

    There are some strange things to using foodstamps. You can't buy deli meat from the meat counter, but you can buy the exact same brand and amount of meat if it's prepackaged.

    You can buy candy bars but not weight-watcher's protein bars.

    Yeah, one thing that people fail to take into account is that working for low pay and being poor is a huge drain on willpower. I mean you have little to look forward to as far as luxuries so going even further to take food luxuries away (unhealthy but delicious stuff) hurts. If you can never afford to go on vacation or own fancy stuff, eating doritos might be the only thing a person has to look forward to.

    There's a lot to the problem of social inequality, but that's just a tiny way I see people just generally dismissing people on food stamps because they buy soda. No doubt I'm expressing myself poorly. I'm basically a social worker at heart though.

    edit: I have also been very poor in my time. Now I live frugally but well, in my opinion, but I credit being formerly poor with my meager salary feeling like more than enough for everything I want and still saving 25% of it a month.
