(New York Daily News)   Bedroom of Long Island boy, 6, killed by bus crash was illegally converted from a porch. See you stupid people, this why you don't build anything to house the people you love and let buses crash through your house. Stupid, stupid people   (nydailynews.com) divider line 16

Weatherkiss: zulius: So, the bedroom was 6 years old?

The porch was six years old before it was converted into a boy.


Porch boy time is one of the most magical moments in all of nature to see. If you can't go to Africa to see the Great Migration, go to Long Island to watch the porches molt.

d23: If your house is hit by a bus then it's obviously your own fault. You chose to buy that house or you made bad life decisions that meant you had to. See? It's so obvious.


Sorry, folks, but this is absolutely true. Had this been a legitimate bus crash, the porch would have been able to stop the kid from getting killed.

I am from Long Island.

My son's room was walled off from the garage.

I wanted to have a cinderblock partition to prevent an accidental acceleration from a car crashing through the wall. I was overruled & plain particle board was used.

Luckily, all is moot as Hurricane Sandy completely destroyed my house. The End.

How do you create a boy out of a porch? Unless it's Pinocchio.

offmymeds: WTF? I submitted this same story from the same source several days ago. Is it the $5/mo? Is that it?


Did you submit it with a headline that was written correctly? Sometimes I think they greenlight poorly written headlines just so we'll come in and make fun of it.

But it's in really poor taste. There's nothing funny about converted bus-shaped boy bedrooms crashing into six.

Either that or you shouldn't create a bus out of a porch illegally.

Your Average Witty Fark User: A Shambling Mound: This is important. If they had applied for and received the appropriate permits they wouldn't be now hearing that the conversion was not permitted. Which changes everything, of course.

Wait, what?

/dealing with construction permits right now
//doesn't matter what state or city you're in
///f*ck those guys. In the ear. With a permit.

How the fark do you know the current residents are responsible for the conversion? Fark you. In the ear. With a broken beer bottle.


I don't.

I also don't have any idea what you think I was trying to say but I have a strong suspicion it has nothing whatsoever to do with what I actually said.

The body of my post was sarcastic mocking of an article that says nothing of worth whatsoever and my slashies were intended to indicate my intense dislike of the pants-on-head retarded permitting process for recon of existing structures within my municipality.

Don't hurt yourself with that bottle. It's sharp.

E_Henry_Thripshaws_Disease: the bus killed the bedroom that was driven by a 6 year old porch, got it?


Where was the 6 year old porch driving the bedroom to when it was killed by a bus?

Porches are a home's crumple zone. It's like putting passengers on the hood or truck of your car.

Stoker: Well I guess that's good news for the driver/bus company who did not keep control of the bus, eh?


He swerved b/c some asshole jaywalker jumped in front of bus. Luckily, the bus did hit the jaywalker.

So it's legal to convert a porch into a boy in Africa, but you need a permit to convert a porch into a boy in Long Island.

The fact that the porch was converted from a porch to a bedroom without a permit has no relevance, unless you are telling me that as a result of a permit applicaction the city would have said "no, you cant convert it to a bedroom. A bus might crash into it and kill a kid." I have no doubt they would have said no to such a conversion but I find it highly improbable that concerns about a vehicle hitting the house and killing the occupant of the bedroom would have entered into the equation at all.

This is just one of those shiatty things that happens in life. The kid may just as well have been killed by a plane falling into his bedroom in the back of the house, or if the bus had more momentum and he were in a different spot, killing him in the front room.

More importantly, what business is it of the city if you convert YOUR OWN porch to a bedroom? That is the homeowners call. Screw the permit requirements. Government needs to get the heck out of peoples lives and quit being so unnecessarily intrusive.
