13.  This is a easy one. When no one gives a damn!
1. Sick from working too much, not getting enough rest, smoke, drink etc. too fcking bad, die fool.
2. Lost your job, can't find one, have college tuition to pay back. Too f11cking bad.

Only the smart and the lucky deserve help. Oh wait they don't need it. We shouldn't help anyone!
