It's finished! True story, by the way. It's only a minor roadblock, though.

If you're on Food Stamps or Medicaid: Show more
Okay, here's a tip for thriving on #LowIncome that I found out about a few months ago:
If you're on Food Stamps (also called EBT or SNAP), or Medicaid (a form of health insurance which can only be held by people who are seniors, disabled, low income, and/or unemployed), then you're eligible to sign up for a discount on Amazon Prime, so it's $5.99 a month, according to this: https://www.amazon.com/b?node=16256994011
Although this discounts your Amazon Prime service itself, you can’t use Food Stamps for the groceries you buy through Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=201895360
That said, having Amazon deliver to your door for free saves you transportation costs for going shopping.
TV service is one of the first bills most people cut when they become #LowIncome, but Prime includes a streaming on-demand TV service, so that's another perk. This makes Prime the *only* TV service I'm aware of that can be discounted if you have Food Stamps.
(Full disclosure: I'm not affiliated with Amazon, and I think their company is pretty evil and inhumane to its workers. Still, there's no ethical consumption under capitalism, and this can help you afford groceries, TV, and some other common needs, so that's good.)

Thinking about how Kyoto Animation, in an avant garde move, reanimated the same episode 8 times and aired nothing but that for 8 weeks. They didn't just -reuse- footage. No. They REANIMATED the same episode 8 times with different camera angles, new clothes, slightly different scenes, and rerecorded voice lines. In the book, the timeloop the cast is stuck in is only like 30 pages. Originally it was planned for just 2 episodes but something in production got snagged so they just...did Endless 8s.
