"I’m just a fat guy sitting in the cold."
“Why are you sitting in the cold?”
“I’m waiting to go to work. I work an overnight security job. I live in Philly, but I take the bus up here and stay for four days each week. I can’t find work in Philly and I’ve got two kids.”
“Where do you sleep?”
“Starbucks, McDonalds, anywhere I can take a quick nap.”
I hate capitalism so much.
Class Struggle the Board Game - The Greatest Thing to Ever Exist
When this first popped on Reddit, I was positive it was a fake, yet hilarious, photoshop job.
We have this game at 128 (radical social centre in Wellington) but everyone always refuses to play it with me. The one time I talked people into it they ended up having a nuclear holocaust while I was in the loo and I’m sure they did it on purpose.
I think it’s quite boring - but I’ll totally play it with you. We can play it and critique the analysis - it’ll be the best kind of board game session.
