Sure, everyone deserves to be in an altered state of consciousness once in a while.

I give them food if they look like they're hungry, otherwise I don't give them anything at all unless they're a street performer in which case I'll dish out change for good performances.


"gas" is a slang term for heroine in my area. I get people coming up to me all the time saying they ran out of gas and need a few bucks to get going. Sometimes I f*ck with those people if I have enough time to spare, but sometimes I just walk past them without acknowledging their presence.

I donate to charities that actually make a difference. Cash in a homeless guy's hand is like hiring an investment banker that failed econ.

-for about 3 years I gave this obviously downtrodden woman about $6.00 a week, she sat on the corner of logan and speer and I would always catch her at the light. she never asked, had no sign....just sat there really dazed and out there. I haven't seen her in months, don't know if she's alive or what....

I used to enjoy the guys sitting outside of base who looked like they were 20-25 claiming to be in Vietnam or completely broke while wearing bright expensive shoes.

i try to. if i can. i heard someone say once that you never know when god might be testing you. sounds kind of goofy but its always in the back of my mind. i figure hes got a whole lot less than i have. if me giving him some change im just going to toss on the nightstand anyway makes him a little happier than thats cool with me. i dont really care what he uses it for as long as its not used towards theft.

I used to, but as time went by it just became easier and more practical to just put my hands up in a "Can't do it, man" sort of way...or just say "Naw can't do it, man."
But I've always lived and worked in areas where I was constantly asked for change...and I've become kind of numb to it...which sucks.

I do, however, give out money when I'm drunk There's just nothing I can do about it

You feel guilty for giving bums change so they can buy 40's and crack?

No. I really hope that Bum Island becomes a real thing. A small island with just bums.

I'd rather give them a hand up not a hand out.

I usually just say "don't you know were in a recession?!" Sorry, but I can hardly support myself. Why the **** should I give out my hard earned money.
