This is a question Things you've done when you've had no money.

Apart from the usual survival rations of beans, white bread and Doll Noodles™, we've all done things to compensate for having no money. Personally I spent 6 months barefoot to save on the cost of shoes. What pathetic things have you done when the cash ran out?

Poor, Poor Pitiful Me
Being a philosphic sort of person in a Philistine sort of country, I have had to find many non-traditional ways to support my own self:

1. Collecting other people's garbage and making "art" out of it for gullible tourists - biggish money if you have the artiste's slovenly, bitter superiority act down.

2. Saving the ashes and smoking them a second time. The high isn't great, but it more than kills the pain from the incipient Black Lung Disease it causes, so it's a plus.

3. Several guys who grew their own would gladly get a straight guy wasted to get into his pants, so I played straight. Not difficult, just odd.

4. Friends would bring ALL their not-quite foods to one kitchen, and a ghastly looking feast would ensue. Always edible, with enough booze.

5. Money could always be gotten from Mr. " ", who had certain needs others didn't really enjoy satisfying. Suffice to say he would bend over and my hands would be warmed. And messy.
