That guy has got some nerve!

Terrific, you think a guy who happened into such good fortune would be positively radiant with love for everyone. Instead we find out he's just some pig and the media that didn't bother to check into his background ends up eating humble pie.

I laughed when I read the headline, expecting the finest Springer the world can offer, and then I read the article and realized that I had been lied to. You suck, submitter.

What you did there. I sees it.

I find that kind of ironic considering your fark handle.

You are one to call someone a liar. You are neither hot nor a teenage girl.

Aren't second chances wonderful?

Too bad some nice, gentle paraplegic couldn't have had this guy's luck. I wouldn't wish paralysis on anyone, but I think he deserves to stay in a wheelchair for life.
 
2009-03-17 04:12:03 PM
Could just be a coincidence due to the forced physical therapy to recover from the bite or something they gave him for the bite, not necessarily the bite itself.

Brown recluse bites are bad, just GIS for a looksee.

He's probably always been abusive. But now his wife can't simply walk upstairs to get away from him.
 
2009-03-17 04:14:11 PM
Sounds like as soon as he was able to walk around and reach the sink, she tried to shirk her dish duties on him. Sounds about how it went down anyway.

The venom from a Brazilian wandering spider is nature's Viagra.

/The more you know.
 
2009-03-17 04:14:35 PM
What if the wife had been abusing him for the 21 years he was in the chair? Would a little comeuppance be uncalled for?

Ehh.. maybe "Manteca Police arrested Blancarte Friday on an outstanding warrant. He is charged with contempt of court charge stemming from a domestic violence case"

No other details then that, I'm not gonna make a call that the guy is an arse, though he probably is. Who knows the charge could be from before he gained his legs back. Threw something at his good for nothing wife..... I got nothing.. :)
 
2009-03-17 04:16:54 PM
But it was from an old charge not anything new.
 
2009-03-17 04:17:29 PM
These legs were made for kicking and thats just what thell do.
One of these days when I'm no longer paralyzed, i'll kick the shiat out of you.
 
2009-03-17 04:18:05 PM
She falls down a well, and her eyes go crossed. She gets kicked by a mule and they go back again. I don't know.
 
2009-03-17 04:18:12 PM
Why do bad things happen to bad people?
 
2009-03-17 04:20:07 PM
For anyone curious...he was arrested on an OUTSTANDING warrant stemming from a contempt of court thing...so the reason he was arrested could have happened before he got the use of his legs back.

TIMMMYYYYY!!!!
 
2009-03-17 04:21:53 PM
He is not spineless when it comes to his wife...
 
2009-03-17 04:22:51 PM
Reminds me of a puzzle:

You are in a foreign country, are lost, and need directions. There are two kinds of people in this country, liars and spiderbitten paraplegic wife-beaters.
What one question can you ask to ensure you get Vala0128's BsIE?
 
2009-03-17 04:23:00 PM
Is he strong?
Listen bud,
He's got radioactive blood.
 
2009-03-17 04:23:17 PM
It's like Spider-Man meets Ant-ManYellowjacket!

/Not obscure, but really farking nerdy.
 
2009-03-17 04:23:51 PM
He should have shut his mouth about being able to walk then when he went to jail he could have walked right out and disappeared like David Blaine

TAAA - DAAAA
 
2009-03-17 04:24:00 PM
There should be a slash in there. Ant-Man/Yellowjacket.fark dammit, let's just pretend I said Hank Pym.

Or even when they were completely paralysed. It could have been a court case involving his brother who beat HIS wife and this guy was in the chair testifying and was uncooperative and got slapped with a contempt charge.
 
2009-03-17 04:26:13 PM
Hey,

Did you guys know it was an outstanding warrant?
 
2009-03-17 04:27:39 PM
shtychkn: Hey,

Did you guys know it was an outstanding warrant?


No. I thought it was a regular warrant. Was it two thumbs up outstanding?
 
2009-03-17 04:27:44 PM
Like my grandmother used to say, "When life hands you lemons, you make lemonade and use it to kick your wife's ass."

Gahd, subby!

We don't know what happened really; you just draw your own conclusions there, didn't ya?

For all we know, maybe it was an old girlfriend who was getting beaty on him and maybe he defended himself with his motorcycle helmet and she broke her finger, so being a biatch she uses her gender against him and charged him!

/It happened to my dad with his ex-wife/my ex-stepmom...she was smart and didn't press charges because she knew I hated her freaking guts and knew I could pull the abused visiting stepchild card on HER(she never laid a hand on me, she knew better than that, too)
 
2009-03-17 04:31:09 PM
Sounds like this has been on the books for a while, but since he was paraplegic he'd been staying under the radar. Suddenly he's a national celebrity, and "whammo".

Makes sense.
 
2009-03-17 04:35:46 PM
Honestly, I think I'd prefer being paraplegic to getting bit by a brown recluse spider. Their bites occasionally cause necrosis of the flesh, and I'd rather have useless legs than legs that seem to melt away.
 
2009-03-17 04:38:37 PM
That guy's a walking Fark headline machine. Well, walking now.

Not. See the first thread about this guy.

/not overlooked, not not nice.
 
2009-03-17 04:47:53 PM
It's altogether possible that his wife was the defendant in the case, but that during the trial he committed the contempt offense.
 
2009-03-17 04:51:55 PM
I'll bet the biatch had this beat down coming for going on 20 years now.
