when one has exausted all resources and is reduced to the insane condition of toting a small travel bag, aimlessly riding buses, selling plasma, nodding-out in public libraries, standing in welfare lines, eating in soup kitchens, walking in a dream, sleeping in shelters and parks, worrying about the next fix, and knowing that going to jail is a step up on the social ladder.
Dude, maybe he's homeless because he's mental, can't care for himself, and nobody cares.

The most discriminated type of people in the United States.
homeless man: Can I have two dollars to buy some food for the day?"
man: "Sorry I don't have any cash"
(5 minutes later)
teen: "Hey man, can I borrow 5 bucks to pay for the parking meter?"
man: "Sure, here you go."

a person without a home. homeless people often sleep in parks, shelters, vehicles, or boxes. the government does not care for homeless people, which is why they exist in the first place, so the only people left to help the homeless people are non-profits and religious groups. many homeless people are veterans. this is because once the millitary is done trying to get them killed for a foreign policy mistake, they leave them to fend for themselves even though they do not have a home, hve possibly alienated thier family, and are not well educated. many other homeless people are mentally less capable. these homeless people are harder to help, because they of their mental illness, homelessness is a vicious cycle.
jimmy dropped out of high school because he did not have the type of intelligence the teachers wanted. while still a smart person, jimmy asked the wrong question, so he got bad grades. his parents would not support him because he had dropped out, so he lived out of his car. because he did not have a degree, he could not find work. wothout a scource of income, he was forced to panhandle on a street corner in order to afford fast food. now jimmy is considered homeless

Just a normal person like you or I who didn't have much support growing up and ended up without a house. Some of these people are very intelligent, but just don't see a need to follow this "status quo" that everyone else follows. They understand that being lazy is something that is actually sought out for and not something to be ashamed of. All you assholes pretty much could've been a homeless person, but you barely escaped the gap. Shame on you assholes.
I have a 120 point IQ, yet I barely failed high school and now I'm homeless on the streets because my parents didn't want to harbor a high school dropout.

Lets drive away from all the closed minded definitions and try to properly define a 'homeless' individual. The most common form of homeless is the addict; these people come from abusive families, relationships and lives of many different forms. These forms usually end up in shelters and the dark parts of outside due to addiction or mental illness.
In another direction you get the vagrants who use train hopping and hitch hiking as a means of getting around, these types are very similar to the above and can often get into more trouble(they range from street punks to low life backwash.)

On the brighter side of this life you get the few odd types who chose ancient survival methods over modern day survival. These types typically do not stay in shelters or the sidewalks and are far more difficult to locate due to the fact that many of them do a lot of walking across country. These usually range from odd aboriginals trying to live out their traditions to the so called anarcho-primitivist movements. Many of these types vary in their survival methods. Very rarely do you find one that knows everything on how to survive like our ancestors did.
Not all homeless are depressed, insane or trash you know...

Somebody without a permanent home or residence. Usually can be found in public parks smoking weed and yelling at innocent people, sitting in the bus stop listening to a radio, on the freeway underpass, lying down on the sidewalk, or at Jack-in-the-Box.
I was in Jack-in-the-Box with my friends cuz we had to use the bathroom, and we had a conversation with a homeless guy there about 70's music.

Homeless usually means a person with no home to live in. In many cases the homeless is searching a nice warm place to stay in, especially if there are other people. In Bucharest campus life a homeless means a shithead dude who wanders around in girls' area of the campus and intrudes into random rooms. Often jerks who are prone to do that are named Orlando or Ionut.
Boul ala de Orlando iar a venit aseară la noi in camera și l-am amenințat ca îl udam cu apa fierbinte dacă nu iese din pavilionul fetelor. Frate, e un mare homeless copilul ala!
