    I put No put i'm not overly sympathetic in UK atleast you can easily survive with the education and benifits systems we have here, especially in scotland where Uni is free.

    You guys should also know that being homeless perpetuates itself.

    If you're homeless, you can't take a bath. If you can't take a bath, you smell. If you smell and go to a job interview, you likely aren't going to get it due to hygiene issues. If you can't get a job, you can't work your way up or pay the few bills you had before. It's a vicious cycle.

    Since this thread is for NTs I asked my ENTP and INTP friend about it. The INTP friend had no comment, but the ENTP friend said: "Why would I hate dinner? "

    NTs are silly.

    Offensive or not this made me pause and think.

    You can't really be homeless where I live. Without an insulated and heated residence you would die in the winter. So I'm not familiar with the social situation. How odd.

    I don't really like panhandlers. The vast majority of proceeds acquired via begging where I live are spent on substance abuse. This isn't to say this is the case everywhere, but here there's little need to beg given social assistance / welfare / unemployment should in most cases pull an otherwise able person above such desperation. They won't have luxuries, but they won't starve, freeze, or smell.

    Here when it's below 0F the homeless usually ride trains or buses when they have to.

    What a bizarre topic.

    I will say that, living in the Bay Area, it's impossible to walk two blocks without someone lunging forward and demanding money, then screaming after you if you decline. (Seriously, anyone who's even visited San Francisco knows what I'm talking about.) So. I don't like that much.

    I don't like them but I definitely don't hate them. It's pretty easy to infer that their lives must suck so it's pretty unlikely that they're they by choice. I can also understand the possible series of events that could have unfolded to leave them destitute.

    I'll usually give them change or a bill because if you have no money, even a little can open a lot of possibilities. Besides, that change would just end up lost in the pile of clothes that is my bedroom's carpet anyways.

    When I lived in SF I remember some legless bum on a wooden board on wheels chasing after some guy screaming 'cos he wouldn't give him money. o_O

    Big change from the NYC bums. Most of them are really chill and will just sit, chit chat for awhile... tell an amusing story... really earn that dollar.

    Heck once they get to know you, they don't even ask for money. I get hit up for cash more by people with jobs. o_O
