Slartibeerfest: Nobody puts bleeding baby in a bag...
grinding_journalist: "I'm not sure why people would do that when she could just take it in to the hospital instead of just dropping it off at the front door and expecting somebody else to take it in," Goldfarb said.Really? Can't think of a single reason?I can think of more than one pretty easily.
PressPlayOnTape: You can't promise me that, Subby. It may contain candy. Just not in this case.
kd8our: PressPlayOnTape: You can't promise me that, Subby. It may contain candy. Just not in this case.I was expecting a bag of poop, not a bag of baby.Not so cool story. Had a neighbor who ended up in a hospital after she went nuts. It started in the early 90's when news stories about babies abandoned in trash bags was kind of a fad. She really latched onto that idea. When she drove she would avoid hitting bags in the road out of the fear it contained a baby. This mental breakdown soon began to expand to all bags and trashcans. That woman actually though there were dead babies in bags everywhere she went. It went from an amusing WTF to "holy shiat!" real quick. I am still friends with her daughter and this still comes up when we talk. Her mother was always a bit off, but that was by far her worst streak of it. I have no idea what mental illness she has. It was the first time I ever met somebody who was actually mentally ill. To this day when I see a bag drifting on the road I can't help but think of that woman. I can only imagine living in that kind of mental horror show.Another woman had a similar issue with stuffed animals. They reminded her too much of a dead puppy she once saw on the road. She couldn't stand to see a stuff animal on the floor. especially if it were a dog or cat stuff animal. farking crazy.
RangerTaylor: "She was nervous, she was scratching her arms and forearms, I guess she was kind of nervous."Meth's a hell of a drug.

Can't think of a single reason?I can think of more than one pretty easily.For those lucky among us that have little-to-no exposure to or time spent thinking about the desperate ends of our society, it can be difficult to wrap your head around such inhumanity. I'll tell you: before I traveled the world in the Navy and then married a psychologist that has worked with all sorts of victimized people, I had no idea what "desperation" meant. At least the baby is out of that situation now.Still, though, a trash bag? Jesus H Christ, use a beach or bath towel or something, child!
No Time To Explain: Annnnd there's another reason not to go to the hospital
Jon iz teh kewl: ER is a word in scrabbleso is QI
KrispyKritter: but but but she was recycling teh plastic bag!
Wettner: If the baby was bloodied and beaten it would affect me more emotionally than just a baby with afterbirth and fluids all over it.
