Being Poor
The post "Being Poor" describes some of the challenges of living in a country that neither guarantees the basic needs, nor the means to obtain them.  It's mostly luck and what your parents had and who you can beg favors from.  Which I happen to think is reprehensible in a society that has the means to meet everyone's needs, but consciously chooses not to do so.

Mum used to feed us dandelion and stinging nettle back in the late 70s. The latter do not sting once boiled and they taste a bit like spinach.
