Onemunki says: We live in a world of genuine tragedy, starvation and terror. So, after hearing stories of cruise line passengers complaining at the air conditioning breaking down, what stories of sheer single-minded self-pity get your goat?

Middle class crusties
Trying out a 'lifestyle' as it's quite liberating to be able to mingle with the poorer folk and experience that sense of doom and gloom and heavy drug-use, but it's also nice to ring Mummy or Daddy when shit gets real (lice, overdoses, angry people, lost credit card etc).

Yeah, but that's the whole point
isn't it?

I have never been a crusty, but the idea of just wandering off in an old bus and not washing for a year does have a certain appeal.

Thing is - any time I want to do that, from an economic perspective, I can. If I don't like it, I just park the bus behind Asda, with the keys left in it, and walk home.

People do it because they have the choice. It's the ones that don't have the choice I'd worry about. If the best you can do is live in a bus with dreadlocks, it's you that has the problem.

To be honest
the bit that appeals to me is smoking a lot of pot and loafing around in the sun, but I'm pretty sure I'd just spend most of my time asleep.

protip: buy a horsebox.
on sunny days, with the judicious application of a couple of appropriately-cut telegraph poles, the horse ramp becomes a patio.
