Wet corrugated cardboard stinks but then I would imagine street people stink too..... :o  I say 'I imagine' because I've never been that close to any to smell them (I know that sounds like a Biden thing), I apologize for that.  Closest I've been to a 'street person' in in Detroit by Dumo's.  Been asked for a smoke before but I'm always armed in those situations so I keep my distance anyway.

Always stay upwind.

They do have a particular odor.  For years there was a lady in Toledo we that worked downtown all called the "Bag Lady". She was always around downtown. Pretty sure she was homeless but not sure where she slept..

I am not sure why some people to chose to live like that, but I suspect it has much to do with mental illness.

Lots do.  Some advantages...

Pay no taxes
No mortgage payment
No utility bills
No insurance
No putting up with relatives
No alarm clock
 

Not all that bad really.

I read today that some rich azz in Frisco is going to spend Millions to answer the question of why people want to be bums.

Can't wait to hear the results.

If I could deal with it, I'd live in a cardboard box as well.  Like I said, they stink when wet.
