How about cold play?

I would probably die if I had to listen to Coldplay for any period of time.

SlothB77: I just don't believe Newcastle reached temps that could support freezing to death for a healthy 20-something male.

Danger Avoid Death: Dog Welder: So I'm guessing the Republican ideal of being homeless and getting all those free government handouts isn't all it's cracked up to be.

The Republicans don't mind if you're homeless, as long as you're homeless in Great Britain.

Republicans are truly responsible for this dumbass freezing himself in the U.K.

This is correct. In my twenties I slept in snow many times in a sleeping bag while camping. No wind, and you're dry, it's not bad at all. An unheated building would have been luxury.

Silly wannabe, you can't decide to be a true connoisseur of hobo life, just like that.  You have to work up to it.  Start small, maybe with a bit of PTSD and substance abuse, and then gently move onto screaming bouts at random strangers and masturbation on public transport or in libraries.  Only once you've mastered those can you brave -20 degree nights with just smelly newspaper insulation and strained sterno to drink.  The lifestyle will take a lot out of you, if you don't work your way into it carefully.

It's not the survival of the sensitive. It's the survival of the fittest.

What people don't realize is you either get smart (get out of the cold, find protection, build a fire or move to the food) or you die (or if you're lucky get medical care and social services).

Either way, after a while, nature figures out who is tough enough to be shiat on constantly.

/at least he died knowing just how rough it is on the homeless, the mentally ill, and others who are out there alone
/You think you're poor? Try saving one kleenex you've stolen from somewhere for a couple of days, then go out in the middle of the night on a dirt road by the railroad tracks in a violent major city, take a liquidy poop that you've been working on for couple of days, and try to wipe yourself clean with that single kleenex. Be sure and poke the used kleenex into your pile of excreta, like the ribbon on Hershey's Kiss. Oh and no soap or wipes for your hands either. That's poor. It's also alcoholic or mentally ill or a few other things.
