So, not directly related to this particular test, but on the subject of bubbles: went to see Midnight Special (which I highly recommend) with The Man From Texas and I had to ask him afterwards about when the movie is supposed to be set, because look at all these landlines and old CRT TVs, but they're saying dates like 2011. He had to explain to me that in the poor-but-not-Hunger-Games-poor parts of the south this is still completely normal. Of course, this was news to me because where I live poor-but-not-starving folks have garbage cellphones and itty bitty HD sets or no TV at all.
You mean those TVs that have a rounded screen and have that high pitched buzz? I got one of those.
3 seems like it defines poor.
3 does define poor, but you get penalized if you, essentially, MADE yourself poor by getting edumacated, or got a little edumacated and couldn't find a job, thus being unable to pay bills that let you live on your own. Because that kind of poverty doesn't count. Because reasons.
However, I don't think this is about "penalties", and I don't think it's about the "kind" of poor one happens to be. Even if you've gone to college and made yourself poor that way, you're still going to experience the world as someone who can't pay their bills and perhaps drink cheap beer, regardless of "reasons".
Well, yes. I might be interpreting things incorrectly, but "Have you ever lived in poverty, being in massive debt after grad school doesn't count and neither does living with your family after college" strikes me as "You're not REALLY poor." And that, among other questions and explanation of questions that exhibit a certain bias that I can't put my finger on to name, is what I take issue with.
Really, I guess at this point I'm just bitching since the subject doesn't seem to be interesting and it feels better to vent.
