Having to live on a tighter, more disciplined budget – but instead of just staying at home to save money, or finding work, you go out to the karaoke bar and sing and do magic tricks until strangers buy all your drinks – thus proving that the desire to get the most, with the least effort, actually sharpens the mind (rather than dull it) – proving the foolish wisdom of the Trickster archetype in myth and culture and how it created the very society that shuns it (but more on that later):  PRICELESS


When you go out…bring your deck of Bicycle Cards.


Don’t leave home without them.
