Let's say you were just cut off from everything you have. You have absolutely NO MONEY. The only thing you have are the clothes on you, no home, NOTHING.

I asked this to a friend of mine and she told me she's go begging...

Here is the setting you are given...

I like this post...we take so many things for granded...it s intesting to roleplay (only in our heads) a situation that all you have is taken away from you...for most of the people is something unimaginable but the majority of the people in the world live in poverty.

  i think i would try to find myself a job on the spot. Anything to keep me alive.
I that was not possible I would steal from the rich. Try to spot  someone who looks rich...not  just average and attack them...

Actually here in china I ve been attacked by a thief myself ... I was pissed off but here I am now claiming I would do the same. i guess the difference is that the person who tried (but unsucesfully) to rob me looked far from poor: new clothes,new mobile new motorbike...
...well that s another big discussion i guess
so here s the question:
how do you define poverty?
...Nothing is as permanent...
...as the temporary...
