Not to mention the green bag of chicken bones.

What. A. farking. Idiot.

Too bad the heli didn't tip enough to chop him up in the rotors.

Indy Jones style.

This fellow is lucky the headline didn't read:

"Millionaire businessman chopped into bits of flesh and bone and pink mist by shattered helicopter blades"

Obviously the guy was an idiot who absolutely shouldn't have tried to pull down a helicopter on takeoff, but to be fair - I would have been pissed to.

A helicopter landing in a residential area can throw up rocks and debris, since the area is not meant for...helicopter landings. Obviously if your $80,000 Land Rover is just a couple hundred feet away, it could easily sustain damage.

The pilot AND the guy on the ground are both assholes.

Is it customary over there for millionaires to have such ready access to bags of chicken bones?

"I say, old chap, I do enjoy being rich."

"Indeed, Pennington. It is enjoyable."

"Bloody hell! It's a heli coming right for us!"

"Not to worry, I have me chicken bone bag."

*throws bones*

"Take that, you putty-faced, apple Johnny!"

But after collecting his passengers he saw Jafari approach the aircraft. The "livid" businessman threw a green plastic bag full of chicken bones he had been feeding his dogs at the helicopter before kicking it with the sole of his foot.

WTF? I was told as a child never to give chicken bones to a dog because they could splinter and lodge in the dog's throat. Was I given bad info?

Who the FARK feeds chicken bones to a dog!?

If they're uncooked, it's not a problem. Only cooked chicken-bones are a problem, since they'll shatter.

Came here to say this. You NEVER feed dogs chicken bones. They have the potential to do all sorts of damage to them internally if they splinter wrong. That said, even though the dog on the ground lost his temper, I'd have to say I would be pretty irate too is somebody landed a helicopter next to my $80,000 car. Seems the pilot was being fairly reckless as well.
 
2010-08-03 11:25:26 AM  
The article states that one of the passengers being picked up by the helicopter contacted the other residents of the building ahead of time to see if the helicopter's arrival would be a problem.

"The "livid" businessman threw a green plastic bag full of chicken bones he had been feeding his dogs..."

And unless they were uncooked chicken bones, the moron should be shot for endangering the lives of his dogs. Make him eat broken glass -- same effect.

I thought that was only if they were cooked.


A year seems like a lot for this.

Jafari, I laugh with great derision at your weak, impotent rage. Did you stomp your feet a few times in your expensive Italian loafers?

Ten bucks says you beat your wife when she "disobeys" or "becomes indignant".

fark you, you entitled piece of middle eastern camel shiat.

You are correct. UNcooked chicken bones are soft. They are easily ground up and digestable with no more affect than cartilidge. Without starting a "pet food war" (which is what alot of people like to do), just do some basic research. There are many dog food diets (Bones And Raw Food [yup... BARF]) that advocate this for very sound nutritional reasons.

/my dogs eat raw (frozen) chicken and raw (frozen) beef/liver
//wild canines do NOT "stalk" corn and wheat fields, folks

thinks_on_feet: Who the FARK feeds chicken bones to a dog!?

I think if he had a green bag full of chicken bones they were likely raw, since most dog owners know not to feed their dogs cooked bones. You can pick up raw chicken bones or beef marrow bones up at any butcher. It's very fashionable among dog owners to give Barkley or Fluffy raw bones to gnaw on because it's "closer to the dog's diet in the wild" or whatever. If that sounds stupid, yeah, the dog will drag salmonella and e. coli all through the house because it doesn't live in nature and even if it did, all 25 lbs of it would be dinner for coyotes or wolves within days.

At least McMansions aren't localized to the US.

No, you were not given bad info. You should never give chicken bones to a dog. Splinters of the bones in general can puncture the dog's digestive tract and kill them.

Giving raw chicken bones to the pooch? I'm sure he'll show his appreciation by licking your face!

Yeah, the guy was a dangerous douchnozzle, but the pilot probably chose a poor place to land and it sounds like a little ego-stroking for the people being picked up.

I'm glad I'm poor, therefore don't have such problems with helicopters in my yard or damage to my Land Rover.

Uhh...that actually IS a castle. It's called the Dower House and it was built in the 1500s....seriously. It was renovated and turned into several upscale flats.

HomerSamson113,
Oops. Thank you for correcting my English which stinks. However, I think it's pretty awful.
 
2010-08-03 12:34:45 PM  
Thanks for all the people who responded about the chicken bones. I didn't know that uncooked bones were safe wrt the splintering. That said, are there health concerns about giving raw bones to the dogs? Are they susceptible to the same germs that we would be?

People with nice cars freak out by even the slighest thing. Once I was tossing a disc when some guy walking by screams at us that it could hit his car. He continues his yelling while I try to have a rational conversation with him. I stopped when he started making personal threats against us.
