Since they seem to be oblivious to themselves and their surroundings, might we say, "zombies"?

There are enough people on here that do know how bad off I was... I was on track to make the Hall of Fame for Professional Drinking until I caught a bad case of Alcoholism and that sidelined me, ruining my career as a drunk.

In the end... I found out who my REAL friends were...

I always preferred "Julie Patchouli". I got to sit in the middle of about 20 of them while dosed at the Greek right in front of Jer...One of the best nights ever!

"Hugs not drugs" is what the wharf rats used to hand out at shows.

oh yeah and as far as being "stranded" and mooching on the net...

If you are on tour and can't find food, a place to sleep and a ride home then you need to work on your people skills.

Just an FYI -

Personally, I would not recommend donating in this fashion, especially from a site that doesn't do it itself. I did some research, and I can at least say he's not from Nigeria. I could not pin point an IP address to Phili, but it was an American IP address.

I too saw his plea on dead.net. So I clicked on it and there was a picture of a guy there.

Then I went to the Internet and brought up the politician from Maine.

But no picture. That would have been interesting if the Main guy had a picture that matched.

If he's still in Philly, then I guess he's off the bus.

I kind of have to admire someone taking panhandling to the 21st century. :P
