I was thinking about making this thread a while back but for some reason forgot about it. So heres the situation:

  • You have nothing to tie you down (no family or relationship)
  • You have no money or way to make money (or will have no money shortly)
  • You're down to two options
What do you choose, Prison or Poverty?


Oh, poppycock.
I thought about this for a while. I would rather prison. You get food and you're not out in the freezing cold. I'll deal with the abuse 'cause at least then I have social interaction too. Wow, I realized how stupid that sounds. Oh well, I don't know another way to describe it.


yellow 4!
Poverty. At least I have my freedom and can start working my way back out of my situation. If you're in prison you're pretty stuffed, I suppose it depends on the length of the sentence.

Edit: Oh wait, no way to make money? Prison :lol:

Sorry, I read wrong.

Nope, we know what you meant Aleks ;). I would choose prison as well, at least you'll have a place to stay and 3 meals a day. Why not?? Plus you'll get more buff in Prison, that's my goal!

Poverty, no question. Yes, it would suck not having any money, but freedom is priceless. I know it says you would have no way to make money, but I'd just try to make some friends and maybe land a job somewhere. If that didn't work, I'd hitch into the wilderness and live off the land, and probably starve to death. That's better than prison anyway.


Staying in prison with food, a bed and other inmates for company all for free. Compliments of the taxpayer. ^_^

Or you could stay at a homeless shelter and have friendlier company and freedom.

I would chose poverty.
I might be poor but atleast I would still have my freedom to roam and do as I please.I couldn't take life behind bars, I would totally lose it!

Definitely poverty. I'm very claustrophobic and can't imagine being locked up anywhere.

Not to mention, orange is not my color or green stripes.... don't think so.:lol: Or do different prisons have different uniforms?
