You fall asleep in a tunnel only to wake up to a man rubbing your testicles. You say to him “Why are you rubbing my testicles?” and he says “I’m sorry I thought they were mine”. Then you realize your just high, it’s your own hand, and there is no other man there, and back to sleep.
only areas in town that i've seen homeless in are pipes either flood drains like these or even small ones that are wide as a 2 lane road .idk where else anyone could stay under the vegas weather and survive ? I have and do see a few camping in dirt dunes here where i live around the nlv airport but when june come around they leave . tents put up next to dumpsters etc and squatting ,but the abandoned houses are disappearing fast cos the economies on the upswing .not could be me -will be me
hi i live in vegas and it tripped me out seeing Sharon bc she died in the tunnel we had lots of rain and tunnel flooded she drowned i had known her for yrs. seeing this vid really upset me she was a good person
Carnation condensed milk was produced since 1899 but took the name Carnation Milk in 1901. The company was eventually sold to Nestle in 1986 who still makes the milk today, but now it is called "Nestle's Carnation Cooking Milk"
Sharon is a fool following a “man” who wants to live down there. What’s worse is the scumbag who exploits the misery of these people and hugs them as if he is friends with them. It’s the most disingenuous heap of BS I’ve seen in a long time.
Matthew. Please contact me. I’d love to help and be a part of your “shine the Light”. This issue has been on my mind since I moved here from Minnetrista. Thank you for shinning your story, the light on people whom need living essential to survival
Hey matt its Joe from 2013-2015 we didn't know each other well but I was close with Boston Callie Jess Toxic Irish etc. I have turned my life around & wanted you to know I hold great respect for your humanity and wish you a blessed life my friend. P.S. sorry about throwing rocks at your drone I figured it was the police. My apologies brother
My friends and I used to hang out in and explore these tunnels as teenagers, on the Summerlin side. Never ran into any encampments and rarely any people (they were visiting, not living down there anyway), but read Matt O'Brien's book when it came out and have always been fascinated by these people and their stories. Looking forward to going back one day to help out, do some homeless outreach, etc.
I visited as Vegas and realise the hotel workers work for tourist money to live. I wouldn't live in Las Vegas you can tell what people live there or holiday there. Las Vegas has so many lights it blinded the homeless community. Give food, guidance and help,
Very nice ppl respected. However vegas is expensive. Nice to visit but living jobs don't pay well. Others cities like New York or cal do pay cost of living. I Respect your opinion. Vegas market is high for several years will decline as
Sadly, out of sight out of mind... This is incredible. a different world. Read a book by dean koontz called innocence about a boy whose mother suicides and the boy is rescued by a man who lives under the city. He meets a girl who "lives" in a library. An amazing book and perspective of the world. Thank you for this video
I totally respect these people, some of them want to live like this. And I am behind them all the way.
My reason for this is; they're not playing the game (and I don't mean on a craps table or on a bandit machine) the whole government game. No taxes to pay, no name on their homes that will go to the government anyway. No slavery jobs to pay their own hard earned cash to the governments. It's like the 'Sims' game where the elite control us. Get up, have breakfast, go for a poop, have a shower, go to work, earned a few cents, come home, watch T.V, make a dinner, see some friends, go to bed, do it all over again!! This is why I have a pay as you go mobile, no contract. I bet that's why the chip card in your phone is called a 'Sim' card. They can control what you do. Where you are etc.
You take control of everything, what you drink, what you eat. Don't listen to the lying government, 'drink tap water it is good for you!' Use 'Fluoride' toothpaste it is good for you. 'Pregnant ladies be sure to get your flu vaccine it is good for your unborn baby!' Eat meat it is good for you. Have a MacDonalds burger/fries we have changed the ingredients, with no added children. Lies upon lies. Everything in this list will kill you one way or another. They ply everything with poisons, they are poisoning us. Like I said. You have control of YOUR life. Don't allow the corrupt government control you!!
poor americans, they cant take care of their own people because they have to spend 650 billion usd on military in order to bring us their "democracy", so that we can live in tunnels too when they bomb our shit.
Question ... If you're an ex prisoner and you apply for a job how would an employer know you'd been to jail? Is there a way employers can find out? I live in the UK and know that if you said on a job application that you didn't have a criminal record there would be know way an employer could find that information out. It's considered confidential .What is the situation in the U.S?
technically being homeless is a mindset there are those that have no home but they dont consider themselves homeless cause the travel the open road and have more freedom then us that have a home we should all love 1 another and be the same live as equals none of us is better than the next each person you ever meet i guarantee each person youll ever meet will be able too teach u something new love all keep peace and always keep lovemin your heart
Learning how to draw cartoon animals from the farm is not such a difficult task! Weve grown up surrounded by them! Farm animals are everywhere: In blockbuster movies, childs books, greeting cards. their shapes and images are printed in our minds!
In this section, I will show you how to determine what are the physical uniqueness of each animal and how to work with them. Then, you can practice drawing each cartoon character using basic shapes.
You will have the opportunity to make nice illustrations, practice sketching and cartooning using short easy lessons and complete your creation using a drawing software to create vector art if you want to! Cartoon drawing is really fun once you get into it!
Dont be afraid to try until you get it right. This method is really simple, but requires practice and observation. So, sit back and relax. Learn how to draw animals from the farm and start your journey on a good note!
Lets try s few basic characters to get started! :)
A cute turkey to begin with.
In this first tutorial, you can learn how to draw a fun turkey mostly made from small rectangles and large circular shapes. The posture of the character is really interesting. Not only is it easier to draw than a front version, but its also easier to add some perspective (as we can see with the legs). The fact that we just need to draw one wing is also interesting.
Most of these cartoon animals are not filled with complex textures or digital effects. In this case, the subject is filled with plain colors and only a few basic details (inside the tail) were added.
A nice turtle also from a side view.
