I lived on the streets of LA for 48 hours

  • Published on May 12, 2019
  • What would you do if you lost everything? Ammar decides to live on the streets of LA for 48 hours in hopes gain a better appreciation for the simple things that he takes for granted in life.
    All proceeds from this video will go to www.safeplaceforyouth.org to provide care and support to youth experiencing homelessness.
    * Ammar was by no means trying to simulate homelessness or pretend like he knows what being homeless feels like, he was just trying to deprive himself of everything and see how he'd handle it.

    There should be a seek discomfort App, where each day a new discomfort will be present and you need to perform it, it would just keep record of all the challenges you completed, and can link you up with the people who completed similar kind of challenges.

      Cops tell u u have to walk with traffic. I never do. I walk against cuz I have to see what's coming. Too many bad drivers

    Yeah. I've only done iterations of this in multiple countries, in multiple conditions, all fucking alone for decades. So, fuck this guy who can't even figure out how to while away a mere 48 hours alone. For real then? How hard is this? Park your ass on a bench, snooze during the day, keep alert at night. This is done by many and with much less histrionics. The real challenge is the hours of midnight to sunrise. So, this is really a twelve hour challenge. The rest of the time, you can just hang out in parks, libraries, coffee shops, doughnut shops. There are so many places. And it's fucking LA, so temperate. Try doing this challenge in Chicago in January for a week.
    Ask me about solo hikes in the desert or mountains. Ask me about rough sleeping under a tarp in a driving rain, sleet, and snow in December. Shit. These kids are amateurs.

    Amazing video, as always. Also, btw, those moments of solitude per day where you can detach yourself from the world is exactly what Salah/Namaz is for - to express your gratitude and genuinely appreciate everything that you’ve been blessed with. Love over fear ❤️

    This is a good experience but i don't know why i can't believe that there was someone else or more than one with you all the time
    Maybe because of the way it was filmed cause that's very hard for one guy to film it that way

    Just happened to have got the water cut in my building for 24 hours. You don't actually realize how water is precious until you can't drink it on will, can't shower, can't flush the toilets, can't wash the dishes neither cook.
    My wife is pregnant and I had to go buy water bottles to the store, but still, I never realized before how important water is.
    Water is life.
    And water is getting rarer and rarer on Earth. Many places (South Africa already) will get hit hard by water reserves depletion.
    Thanks for reading,
    You guys are doing a great job, just discovered your channel, love it, keep it up, you rock.
