    I have £30 to my name at the moment, which is likely to be a problem come rent time in September, though thankfully i have a lovely letting agency and they don't mind waiting for my student loan money to come through before I pay, so it's all good

    I do need a job in uni this year though I think. Or I'll just mooch of my fuckwit of a Dad for the one year I have left, which sounds much more fun

    If your Dad is such a fuckwit how come he can afford to support your worthless arse?

    Never ever break the law.
    If you're poor as hell on the street, you should just die. Make no effort to better yourself if it would ever be a questionable activity, such as something that might be morally wrong.

    Eating stolen fast food will cause the world to crash in on itself.
    Investing your money into products to sell said products for a profit is against the moral law. Do not do it. You will bring about the anti-christ.

    Continue going to school, work hard, never become homeless or you are fucked in life forever.

    If your ass is poor as hell, this is a way to survive and get back on your feet. Nothing about it is illegal, it is simply a question of morals for sure, but when your ass is in the wringer, you will be amazed at what you will do to survive.

    The iPod thing is definitely fraud and last time I checked fraud was frowned upon. People have been jailed for suggesting less. You might want to edit your post. Just sayin

    There, edited for the mass.

    The iPod was a bit extreme, that was my bad. I guess some people have different morals about dealing with loopholes in the system. I obviously, do not. I guess i'm an asshole.


    But I'm not poor anymore.

    It sucks playing video games when you have no money. I mean, if you manage to find $60, you can also manage to find a new release that looks really awesome when you should really be saving up for college and gear for work and...fuck.

    Also, that story reminds me of a friend I had who spent a year of his life scamming people over the internet by selling fake WoW accounts to support himself. He stole thousands of dollars from people, was basically a gargantuan dick about it, and bought nothing but drugs and junk food until he went insane and moved back home.

    Basically, get a job and don't do that or else you'll go insane and become a deficit on society

    The only means of income I have is music. My ability to eat and have a place to sleep directly comes from giving performances that are better than anyone else in the field. You bet your ass that having the necessary equipment to continue eating is high on my list of priorities.

    I shaved for the first time in like a month this morning.

    I really should shave more.

    my facial hair is terrible

    I have to shave every day (duh). However, I have been using the same razor for about a month and a half. I shave in the shower so I don't really feel the pain it should be causing, and the shave is good enough for the people that would yell at me about said shave. Because seriously, 12 dollars for four razors? Suck a cock gillette.

    I shave like a man with JUST THE RAZOR nothing else not shaving cream nor gel or aftershave

    Because I was a marine!

    I learned to shave like this before the marines because it was easier for me

    The fact that we are all accessing the internet in our spare time implies a certain basic level of wealth. And what we're (or at least I'm) objecting to is not so much your doing these things as your coming in here and advising other people to break the law.

    That right there is pretty damn true. Though how often do you perform? I mean, as soon as I'm out of high school I'll be in the same boat, but unless you're actually touring, a part time day job works wonders. I guess it depends on where you play, though. Night time at local bars/clubs, or actually touring?
