    I know they probably had policies in place so they gotta check but still, that's hilarious XD

    I do not get why we give welfare recipients anything to play with.

    Get housing paid for. Get food paid for. Water and sewer is cheap. TV is not a necessity. So basically the only real living expense that they have to pay is power bill.

    Assuming they are on the other programs to pay for their necessities, $900 a month is too much.

    I do not give a shit if people on welfare have money for their wants. The only thing government money should go towards is bare necessities.

    Sick of going into section 8 houses with 60" plasmas.


    If you can't afford a baby, DO NOT HAVE ONE!!!!!!!!!!

    Yeah, I must be a heavyweight. I've had shots of vodka or like half a bottle of wine and not felt a thing. Probably because alcoholism ran in my family.

    Being 5,4 i look down on all the midgets.

    OT: Getting £20 a day while living at home with no bills would be easy, but that's about it.

    their policy is to check ID if they think the person is underage they didnt ask for my gf's only when she said she would take me as legal guardian... i was 23 T_T
    Now that im 25 hopefully i no longer look in my teens -.-


    About drunkness... hmmm, meh, its a waste of time, did it sadly a lot specially when i worked in a nightclub at 17 helping a friend who owned it.
    It cured me though, havent touched booze since 18 or 19.
    No, lies, i SOMETIMES make and drink some sangria, its lovely, but never past the point where i start feeling a difference.

    No shame in never having been drunk Rukentuts, you dont miss much....
    And the day after, ugh....

    35$ per day in my country is acceptable. You will not live like a king in a castle, but it is enough I guess...

    Can be good if you get to pay less when taking the bus though!

    Happens to me sometimes that people mistake me for being a teenager. I don't mind if I get to pay less for stuff due to that!
    Close your eyes and smile.
    [15:53] <PizzaSHARK> you have such a cute accent! ^_^

    heres the harsh facts. welfare isn't there for you to maintain what ever lifestyle you had before the shit hit the fan and you had to go on it. so your mortgage and you loosing the house/car/gym membership, playboy subscription, internet, and direct tv are all optional stuff that you don't need to survive. it Sucks loosing a home youve been working on for years. .but that pales in comparison to telling your wife/kids sorry daddy paid the 1200.00 morgage instead of buying food.

    I can't do that, my face starts burning real quickly after just sip. But then I haven't gotten shaky on my feet or anything, so I always assumed I had never actually gotten drunk. Self-control! Which is weird because I inherited my mother's rapid red-turning face, and she gets drunk after one shot.

    She even dragged me out of bed at midnight to drink with her when I was 9, because she got so drunk after one cup she forgot the time/the inappropriateness of encouraging underage drinking >_>

    If I were single, of course I could. Anyone who couldn't is snobby and/or bad with finances. And if you say "I couldn't even pay my rent with that!" then you're living in the wrong spot. There are plenty of places where a responsible spender could live, eat, running water, electricity, and heat. It wouldn't leave much for luxuries, but you could live.

    It's awesome from the standpoint of not having to look up at everyone though!

    Darn Actually you are my fathers and my brothers height.
    I turned up small, i am quite sure it was my hatred of sunlight, milk and sleep.
    Well, at least i have long legs and a perfectly proportionate body so i dont care about being only 1.71

    Height never bothered me at all, but "bad" bodily proportions is a turnoff to me.

    About drinking, well... i can drink like a beast, but i choose not to aside from the occasional sangria (drink of the gods i tell you, specially when well made, many recipes not all are good).

    Seeing some of my friends drunk and working at a nightclub watching how people denigrate themselves when drunk made me decide never to get near that again.
    And gf doesnt drink at all, so its fine.

    Then again student discounts here are great for bus fares anyway.

    Thats more then reasonable, roughly 1055 a month from unemployement checks.

    People adjust easily. Look around and just look at all the luxury everyone has.
    Half of that you barely even use.

    They had double or more previously? Who the fuck would want to work if you can cash in that much by not working. Its the right thing to do.
