(WAOW Wausau)   When being asked about the whereabouts of a 72 year old man and a 100 year old woman, the answer "they're on a trip" might be a little suspicious. Especially if it's in the course of a Social Security fraud investigation   (waow.com) divider line 36

Oh, they're white people.

Why should I care, again, what happens to a species of people who eat at Applebees and listen to Nickleback?

I'd go with: "They're at the gym, but they will be back in 26 minutes".

If the house looks like an episode of "Hoarders," maybe they're actually still in the house. You know, under years' worth of pizza boxes, dead cats and pen caps.

That guy on the left looks perfectly sane, no reason to suspect him at all...

It's amazing that after all these years, you've never posted anything with actual logic or usefulness. I tried to like you, having been a firefighter/EMT for a dozen years, but, I've come to realize that you're _that guy_, who doesn't have a clue, and who blames the world for your failures, and the failures of people like you.

Sad.

But we're talking 30-years of checks. This guy got away with it. He's too old to enjoy living free anyhow.

I was expecting a Japanese story. Some 77,000 people 120+ are still on the books over here with no one checking up to see if they're still kicking.

Oh, look. Someone who can't recognize sarcasm on FARK. Let me let you in on a little secret: Very little of what I say, outside of a political thread, should be taken as serious.

Color me shocked. Somehow, I don't feel bad you don't like me.

This happens more than people like to think about. There are very, very horrible people in the world.

Every so often, these people hit the news. There was a story out of Nashville a few years ago of a guy who wrapped his mother up in plastic wrap after she died, and sealed the room off with a wall air conditioner in to keep it cool. He kept her body for three years drawing her SSI checks.

I kind of recall that. I know I read at least a few of these each year.

I kind of feel bad for people who have to resort to this. It seems like there must be some kind of mental defect present to stoop to that level for a few hundred dollars a month.

Alarmingly common. My local agent is never out of stuff to investigate.

It's not that you're sarcastic, idiot, it's that you're an idiot, idiot. Your attitude pollutes the reputation of our shared field, and your ignorance is shameful. Don't mistake my disrespect for you as being mere disagreement; you truly are a revolting excuse for "humanity".

That and you're always wrong. Idiot.

You sound butthurt. You should cry more about how I'm a bad person. It genuinely makes me smile.

Do you hear that? It's the sound of...well. No one caring. That's right. At this point, I'm just going to ignore you, and flag you to note me whenever you mention my name in a post again. That way I can drink in your impotent rage.

Awww, BronyMedic hides behind an ignore filter rather than deal with people who point out his faults. How surprising.

Curiosity kills the cat, as it were. I had to un-ignore you to respond to this. Your disingenuity is too great.

You're right. I do ignore blatant trolls who prove they have nothing further to contribute to discussion - which in your own words, is what you did. The fact of the matter is, I really don't care what you think about me based on what I post online on a news aggregation forum well known for sarcasm and gallows humor. The fact that you think who I am is defined by my FARK postings alone tells me you either have some kind of serious mental illness where you think the internet is serious business, or your just a really piss-poor troll who needs to lurk more before posting.

The fact of the matter is, you decided to call me a horrible person because I quoted a youtube video, and then go into a typed rant about how "everything I post is false/lie/wrong - however you want to phrase it", which is ironic considering how every time I make a claim, it's usually sourced with a link to the work I got it from rather than an appeal to authority.

You can accuse me of being a "horrible representative of my field" all you want, but the simple fact of the matter is you brought that up, and then pretended like being an EMT-Basic and a Hose Jockey makes you uniquely qualified to make that assessment. (EMT-Basics and Firefighters are awesome, by the way. You just suck.) No statement was made until you made it. You decided to go on the attack based on a meme post. Or the fact that, rather obviously, I'm white making a racial joke about white people.

The other fact of the matter is that there are a large amount of EMTs, Paramedics, and Firefighters on this forum that show up to defend their own and explain why people are misinformed when those topics do come up on this board. In no way would I ever attack them in the manner you just did for that, or for making an obvious gallows humor joke.

No. You decided to be a pedantic and aggressive Rescue Randy, and I ignored you because of that. I will continue to ignore you because of that.

Good day.

I know you are trying to be funny here, and I risk being put on your ignore list for pointing this out.... but people missing since 1982 have probably never eaten at an Applebees or even heard of Nickleback.

I'm not going to ignore you. It's a reference to "Jackie Robinson was the First Black Baseball Player, Charlie Brown", a fandub of the original cartoon.

The fact that someone would take me seriously as a white person cracking jokes about other white people worries me. I didn't think I'd invoke Poe's law that easily.

Actually based on the pictures of the family members, i'd wager those folks were more into country music and cracker barrel. They seem more like the hillbilly lifestyle type. I feel for the officers who have to clean those hoarder houses... probably dead chickens and old false teeth lying around in there.

I just went and looked it up, since that reference went way over my head. Now I understand why.
