@mt774,
you ever heard of Chuggers, or is that a UK thing??? Charity Muggers= Chuggers, out of work actors who basically steal bank details off confused tourists, and get paid to do so, the lowest of the low. No wonder us Brits get put off charity.

I had a somewhat odd situation of mendicancy, in 1993
(or in the early 1990s), when I met a woman at a summer resort
in Upstate NY. She introduced me to her sons, the oldest
of whom was having his 13th birthday, she told me.

Accordingly, I begifted him with some cash $3O
that I had at hand in my trash cash. Subsequently, I threw
some dimes, quarters n 1/2 dollars in the grass for the children,
like an Easter Egg hunt. When their father found out,
he was very, very pleased. He had them befriend me,
even writing me letters sent to my house.

To make a long story short,
toward the end of the summer, he arranged it
so that I 'd take the boys and their mother
shopping to provide them with a new wardrobe
for going "back-to-school".

So, the way I dealt with it, when it happened
was that I knew that I coud refuse,
but I also knew that if I did, the sole criterion
governing what clothes and shoes thay 'd get
was saving their father money; thay might not like
what thay received; (he was obsessed with economy of resources), so I got them what thay wanted.

If you're bringing guns into the UK then you're a terrorist. Leave them at home, that way they won't fall into the hands of criminals. If you're still a bit nervous, I can rent out my 6ft 7in mate Nigel. Nobody gives him any ****, (apart from me of course.)

No, Izzy. I woud not intimidate your guys.

THAT 's what shooting them is for.

Thanx for the offer, Izzy, but I 'll stay with my guns
in the land of the free and the home of the brave.

That way I won't have to leave them with a gunsitter.

( I also save the cost of Nigel's rent n the cost of the TRANSLATOR.)

@OmSigDAVID,
You won't need a translator, we have no difficuties understanding you. I'm sure we could simplify things so that even a Mensarian like yourself would understand.

Well, not long ago,
there was an incident qua understanding what "bank details" meant.

To give credit where it is due,
Mensa BEGAN in England in 1945,
born of the union of 2 English barristers
(or so I understand; I was not in England at the time).
It began as a membership of the top 1% of I.Q.s,
but in an effort to improve representation of the other gender, it was changed to the top 2%.

Now, most Mensans r Americans, with the world's largest Chapter of Mensa being in New York.

The most fun in Mensa arises from the operations of its special interest groups
and from its conventions in regions of America, as well as its Annual Gathering at the end of June.
Next year, it will be in Reno.
I 'm all paid up.

He may have been - but he got all these contracts and stuff - he had an incredible talking voice.
I think after he started getting money, he started into drugs again
(which I believe was the cause of his homelessness) - he was supposed to go into rehab or something,
but haven't heard his voice since.
I had a situation like that a few years ago.
I was attending a convention of the International Association of Near Death Studies www.IANDS.org
in Chicago. In between the lectures, some of us were seated in a hall, in social conversation. We did not know one another.

There was a very tall, very slender fellow, maybe in his 60s,
who said that he was retired and he described himself as being "a recovering alcoholic".
In painful emotion, he lamented the costs that he had incurred in attending the convention.
He apparently had not paid for all of the activities of the convention, i.e., a full registration,
but rather he had only bought the specific lectures that he found most of interest.
He expressed the wish that he had been able to get others for the next day.
( Some will say that he was both a confidence man and a beggar. )
I gave him either a $2O bill or a $5O bill. I knew that it was possible that he was lying,
but I did not care. I knew that he might possibly drink thru the $$; if so, then so be it.

In 1969, I was on my way to the subway in Times Square,
to go home, late at nite; the streets were almost empty,
around 44th Street n 8th Ave. A young couple, guy n girl,
were walking in the opposite direction,
on the other side, east side, of 8th Ave.
The guy crossed the street and he humbly & avidly besought me
to rescue him with some loose change to help get them home.
He admitted to not having enuf cash to get his girlfriend home.
REFLEXIVELY, I brushed him off. I heard his girlfriend condemn him with scorn.

Upon reflection, within c.15 minutes thereafter, I felt sad about my choice
to be ungenerous with him, exposing him to the disdain of his girlfriend
(tho, actually: that 'd be a good education qua her nature).

I felt that the exercise of my sovereign property rights had not been optimally
chosen in that circumstance. I felt sad. I even returned to the scene,
but of course thay were gone by then.

Maybe around 3 years thereafter, within a mile of this site,
I ran into them again, in the daytime. Of course, thay did not remember me.
The guy begged me for financing as he had done those few years b4.

I gave him a few $$.

@ossobuco,
meantime, my cursor started doing a dance.

This tends to happen on my computer when I have been on it for a while -


























though less often now. I think I've nabbed it, but am not sure.
