I'll check it out this evening...it's an issue close to my heart...I was homeless (rough sleeping) for 6 months when my daughter was about 18months old. Met a lot of great (and not so) great people along the way. It was about the most hopeless and difficult period of my life so far, and I wouldn't change it for the world. Smile

Man, that was a great video. I actually wonder how old Fergie is doing. He was getting pretty rough near the end. Very interesting to see life from teir side. It really makes you think things over.

That was a really good video man. A lot of their morals are pretty in sync with Buddhism; not caring about material possessions, being generous to everyone. Nice find DOTKAH!

That's a great film. I always enjoy documentaries. This film just re-enforces what I already know...That alot of homeless people are really kind, down to earth people.

Thanks for posting this.

The best part of this whole thing is seeing these guys make the best of possibly one of the worst situations in the world.

Wow, such an eye opening film. I really have respect for those guys. If everyone could see the world like they do it would be a much better place. And that cart racing, that would take some big balls, I know I wouldn't go down a hill at 70k on the back of a shopping cart with no brakes.

Robert Newmans History of Oil, The Yes Men, A Class Divided, and I Know I'm Not Alone are all great, uplifting and informative. I could recommend dozens, but many are a bit heavy (The War on Democracy, Orwell Rolls in His Grave etc). I'll dig out the links if you want, don't wanna hijack the thread though. Again, many thanks for Carts of Darkness Dotca Smile
