This is a question Desperate Times

Stranded in a hotel in an African war zone with no internet access for two weeks, I was forced to resort to desperate measures. Possessing only my passport and the clothes I stood up in; and the warning "You can catch it shaking hands with a vicar out there" ringing in my ears, I had to draw my own porn in order to preserve my sanity.

Alas, it all came out looking like Coronation Street's Audrey Roberts, but, as they say, any port in a storm.

What have you done in times of great desperation?

On the upside

The great thing about desperate times is the pleasure of small luxuries. The time when you have a little windfall and spend a glorious Sunday evening with a full stomach, central heating on, smoking yourself to sleep - all is right with the world.

I remember one evening, unemployed & miserable, I was tidying up and found 20 quid in an envelope, a remnant of a previous job. The sense of elation was huge. Now day’s if I found 10 grand it be quite nice, but it wouldn’t mean as much as those 20 beautiful pounds.

I couldn't agree more
Amen to that. Great words

I know what you mean.
Fortunately, I've worked since leaving the bosom of my family and have never had the misfortune to be *that* skint.

I do, however, like sea fishing and am constantly amazed at the fulfillment and satisfaction derived from a piping hot tin of soup/beans etc after several freezing hours standing on a rock. (It's even better to go home & have a hot bath and a proper meal though).
