    I guess because the first thought that came to mind for me was, street musicians in 15th-18th century Europe.
    Sorry about the way I went about it. I wanted to make a point though. I know it was a bit of a trap thread.

    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
