BTW I don't want any FReeper eating mustard. If he is that bad off Freepmail me, and I will send a Care Package.

Your mean to tell me your friend would rather eat mustard
for dinner than take any job?
I may get flamed for saying it, but I do not believe that a person cannot find work. It may be a crappy low paying menial job you wouldn't wish on your worst enemy, but I'd rather shovel **** than eat mustard for dinner.

You should also check with the various Churches & Charity Assn's in the area. I'm in AZ, and St. Vincent De Paul delivers food to needy people as does the Phoenix Rescue Mission. They collect food and money from giving parishoners and the giving outside community. They can also arrange for reduced utility expenses, rent payments, etc. Your friend should accept their help and then give back to these institutions when he's back on his feet in an ongoing manner as thanks.
Wishing you the best of luck!

What kind of techie? What does he specialize in? Is he willing to relocate?
A self-compiled Word document containing the most hilarious negative feedback comments left by eBay users.
Buyer's Complaint: "Instead of shipping the item I won, he sent me a photograph of the item I won plus two pieces of bubble gum. :( "
Seller's Response: "Bizarre, foul-mouth adolescent with intense anger + persecution complex. Psychiatric intervention needed ASAP".
I'm working on a coffee-table book which compiles nothing but (what I feel are) hysterical negative feedback comments (from eBay users). However, if it's like every single project I've ever started, it will never be completed/published.
Though he doesn't want to accept welfare
I was on welfare once after an injury (I hated it myself, but had kids and they came first, got off it as soon as I was given ok by doc to work - funny thing is I would not have had to go on it had another government agency, workers comp, had been paying me as they were supposed to. Crap Happens). Your tax dollars pay for it and he might as well suck out what money he can from Uncle Sammy because once he gets back to working they will take it from him without a thought. Use the system when you need it.
A cheap 12 gauge shotgun and directions to the nearest woods. "Teach a man to fish...."

I've got plenty of MRE's lying around I could send for the contest. But I don't know if they would qualify as food.
