How long can you last on $1000?
It's an online game made for a charity in North Carolina. I got as far as day 15.
I did opt to steal the $10 someone sent to my child in a birthday card though
But frankly I think it'll build character.
I made it through, but only by not buying medicine for my mother. That felt good.
Don't pay your gas bill, I need it mooooooooore
she's a Tea Party Republican who opposed Obamacare, so it actually felt pretty good denying her the medicine.
hold me back
but I think I'm about to die of a heart attack and my kids are starving.
Was able to do lots of stuff like pay for the kid's sports thingy and go to a concert and that - only real downer was missing the friend's wedding. Otherwise pretty easy really.
Transport costs were $100 anyway
It never asked me anything about medicine for my mother, must be different questions.
The other option was just driving away, which I imagine would be a failsafe way of avoiding the cost. I R honest.
Finished with $185, although I'd just had my car repossessed and so had lost my job (apparently they don't have public transport in America). Better health than last time though, and I paid for all the stuff for my kid / mum's medicine /etc. Did a runner on that $550 parked car though.
Doesn't work for me.
I wanna live in virtual poverty :(
You'll just have to give away all your possessions and quit your job, it's the only way you'll ever relate to this thread now.
but had just been fired from my job and had to pay rent the next day. So I think I was fucked.
Had enough money to pay my rent and everything. Although for the past 2 years I have been shopping at Iceland and living off £40 a week.
Made it through the month and have $362 to spare.
I'm going on a bender!
I had $125 left.
After it had already been impounded by the police.
I got sacked for thinking about joining a Union.
There's no option to shit on your manager's desk, why is that?
PEOPLE HAVE TO LIKE LIKE THIS???
I had exactly $50 in it.
The trick is to be unemotional and distant towards all other humans.
Thanks though, totally stolen this to send it round at work so I'll look dead on top of ways of talking about poverty in devloped countries
Just didn't let the kid have the life of Riley and didn't pay needless fines etc.
