So basically he's a dumbass!

Not sure what he's trying to prove, other than the fact that he's an idiot.

I'm not surprised 48 cars passed him. I'm surprised anyone picked him up at all.

Um, 50 cars passing you when you're thumbing along a highway isn't particularly unusual and doesn't necessarily indicate that any of those 50 even noticed you. They're going 70-80 mph and you're not terribly noteworthy, man.

He's also dressed like a murderous hobo, has a buddy with him, and his buddy is holding a device hooked up to a car battery with a needle on it. Most people, because they're not stupid, would cross the street when passing that to be as far away from you as possible, what kind of moron picks you up in a car like that? Giving strangers a ride I'm cool with, letting a stranger in ripped clothing with a car battery and wires on him sit behind me and out of my line of sight I'm gonna have to venture I wouldn't be.

//Maybe I rarely have issues because I'm usually hitching because I need to get somewhere (usually where my car is parked or where my hotel is in a strange city) and not to make some sort of dumbass political statement.

If you're going to get all dramatic about people not stopping to pick up your begging ass, you've no business hitchhiking.

Some days you go 500 miles. Some days you go 10 miles, walking backwards most of the way.

He might have better luck if he removed a tattoo for every car that didn't pick him up. Just a thought.

Mr. Ekshun: He might have better luck if he <b>removed</b> a tattoo for every car that didn't pick him up. Just a thought.


Yeah, isn't this the same as getting a new tattoo on your forehead for every employer that turns you down?

It would be cooler if he had a stick figure holding one thumb up and carrying an axe.
 
2012-09-16 05:30:00 AM  
He should just have a huge L for LOSER tattooed on his face. It would be about the same

Let me tell you... don't you look at those illustrations too long, because they'll come alive and they'll tell you stories.

stupid is as stupid does

I think this would be a cool place for flash mob to drive pass and drive pass, again and again.

There's no point in acting surprised about it. All the planning charts and tattoo orders have been on display at your local planning department in Alpha Centauri for 50 of your Earth years, so you've had plenty of time to lodge any formal complaint and it's far too late to start making a fuss about it now.

What do you mean you've never been to Alpha Centauri? Oh, for heavens sake mankind, it's only four light years away, you know. I'm sorry, but if you can't be bothered to take an interest in local affairs that's your own lookout.

I had a similar thought. I'm willing to burn through multiple tanks of gas so this idiot ends up one giant hash mark.

This seems like a good way to explain logarithmic expansion.

So, this dimwitted human male decides to undergo a painful, and permanent reminder of every rejection for a solid day?

Maybe he could just stand there with an axe or macehete. Seems like a lot less trouble to accomplish the same thing.

So the money he's spending on tattoos could go toward a car or motorcycle...

He doesn't want to lose the grudge...

Did I miss something in the article? Is this for a cause or something....or is this guy just a dumbass?
