hockeyfarker: MissMalice: Fancy seeing you around these parts.

Fancy seeing your parts around here!

got back in, and you're gone. Quite a few noticeably absent farkers, actually.


You don't see any of my parts.. SO HA!!!!! Unless you are stalking my parts.

I hear there aren't as many cool kids around the TF area anymore.

Ball of Confusion: was this a nice neighborhood? could have been copper gutters and flashing, but then it would probably be a story about a tweaker falling off a roof and landing on his head.


years ago in the upper peninsula of michigan, thieves stole what they thought was abandoned copper cable but it turned out to be the phone line for the keweenaw peninsula.


The UP is full of win! Copper Harbor would be pissed!

As the foreclosure headquarters of the world, we've been getting hit hard by this kind of stuff here in Cleveland. A guy who works for me (and who lives in an east-side suburb) told me that he's called the cops a number of times on guys who are stripping aluminum siding off of foreclosed homes to be sold for scrap.

The situation is so creepy here that I'm betting we are only a few months away from roving bands of cannibals.

Several years ago I hag a girlfriend who happened to be a very cute girl. About a year into the relationship she went beyond just smoking a little pot and getting high for fun and she began fiending something feirce, especially meth. Needless to say we ended up breaking up. I left for the Air Force and came back home on leave about a year later. That's when I ran into her in the parking lot of the local AMC. She was a wreck, she went from being a pretty 19 year old college student. To a homeless meth whore, that looked like she was about 45 years old. We're talking missing teeth, she was filthy, had sores all over her face, she was farked up. Later on I heard the she had contracted HIV and vanished off the face of the earth. Now, I'll never stand in the way of person's decision to get high (God knows I've done it plenty of times) but man, meth is some baaad shiat and you really need to think it through.

My apologies. I followed through with the inclination to reply to a poster in a similar style and tone that would possibly generate guffaws and chuckles. However, I realize that this thought seems to have been lost on many of the viewers of this page. I will, in the future, think my actions and replies through more thoroughly as to not confuse and/or offend the precious sensibilities of my fellow Farkers. I will partake of food in a short while and brush my teeth in the near future. My body is clean and dry. Thank you for your concern and have a delightful Friday afternoon. Thank you.

You know, I respect a good thief. Those high-class cats who steal priceless art from high security museams, the gadget-tech infiltrators, and a slick blood-free account syphon hack. All morality on the issue aside, thats a profession takes skill and real creativity. I probably wouldn't like them as *people*, but that kind of shiat is pretty impressive.

Then there are people who steal copper wires to fence for a cheap high on drugs made out of bathroom cleaners and grated steel wool (or whatever, I don't know...).

I mean, Jesus. That's just so damn sad.

Then there were the New Zealand chemists who made this arsenic compound just because its systematic name would be "arsole."

I don't get the headline.

I get the element reference... I just don't get why it's repeated three times at the end. Is it supposed to sound like something else? Some sort of terrible pun I don't get?

I know it sounds very callous, but I think the only way to avoid crime like this is to have meth be legal and made available for free by the state.

Maybe there could be a pamphlet in each government supplied meth dose providing info on what that stuff will do to you and where the nearest treatment center is located.

Doing that and providing free beds on demand at treatment centers would be a hell of a lot cheaper than the cost of paying for all the damage meth heads do + the cost of running them through the court system and locking them up.

I'm glad I don't have a land line - the Bell telephone utility boxes in my neighbourhood are destroyed and have their copper wires looted as fast as they are fixed. It's like living in a third world country with the phone service up and down and up and down.

I live in a relatively nice part of Toronto.

"Copper sells for at least $3 a pound..."

tripperday: Thieves' intelligence correlates directly with the price/mass of what they're stealing. Diamond thieves? Very bright. Car radios? Not so much. Copper? Obviously meth addicts.

Yup. I used to manage a self-storage place where we had a guy that was stealing copper from nearby construction sites and sneaking it onto the lot at night to process it for "recycling". Asshole cut a hole in the fence repeatedly. I finally figured out it was him and evicted his ass.

I'm so farking tired of copper thieves out here. They love to hit out transmitter (radio) sites for copper. I'm thinking of switching to auto targeting .50 cal "Theft suppressors."
