John Byrne is homeless? I thought the sales of 'Next Men' were pretty good....

The Muthaship: LL316: The Muthaship: That's a great story, and I'm glad the asshole is going to jail.

But, that homeless dude is a f*cking moron.

Ok, I'll bite...why is he a moron?

He jumped off a bridge to save a rabbit. I understand he really liked the rabbit, but he could have been seriously hurt or killed.


And he has so much to live for otherwise? I think it's a safe assumption to guess that the rabbit and dog are his family by this point, since he's been on the streets since age 14.

I'll guess: "Because he put his life on the line for a stupid rabbit!"

Of course, this answer shows a massive failure at understanding humanity, so I'm sure it's the wrong answer. Right, The Muthaship?

I've said it before and I'll say it again: to hell with cleanliness, caring for animals is next to godliness.

I'm not opposed to killing animals. Or using them to test products for safety. But if you are going to do these things be compassionate about it. If the animal is a nuisance or you need to eat make it as quick and painless as you would want it to be for you. To be that mean to an animal that has done no wrong in order to feel superior to the associated human, punishment should be swift and sure.

4 months is the wrong punishment. A year of inpatient psych with lots of "therapy". And make sure everyone knows about until age 30. You know the drill - local PD, employers, neighbors etc.

styckx: I hate that the site has a share button and it's something worth sharing but on Facebook it just ends up as a link with no thumbnail, or description. ie: The shiat no one ever clicks on.


When i share to facebook part or all of the headline is there and there's a box for me to comment if i need to clarify further.

This story reminds me of a homeless man I'd see all the time in the small town where I went to college. One day I walked by him downtown and noticed he had a Siamese cat on a leash. He saw me looking and said "do you like my cat? He gets along great with my possum." The man opened his coat and sure enough, there was a baby possum in there. I imagine he didn't keep the possum for too long once it grew a bit, but I'd see him nearly every day walking around town with that cat on a leash.

Felgraf: The Muthaship: But, that homeless dude is a f*cking moron.

Why? For risking his life? The rabbit and his dog are likely, to some extent, all he friggen has.


That was my thought. Maybe that one little thing is all he has left to cling to, it gives him something to care and worry for other than himself.

pedrop357:

If you don't want to be stabbed/shot, don't hurt people's animals, don't steal their stuff, stay out of their cars, don't hurt their kids, and don't hurt them.


Im a very big fan of the "just leave other people and their shiat alone" theory of living.

As others mentioned they're probably the only things in the world he is socially attached to. And if he's anything like a lot of the homeless in the US, mental stability is not exactly high on his list of attributes.

I don't know why, but I'm reminded of the Gygax Rabbit Puzzle.

It goes like this: the party has just beaten the Big Bad Evil Guy. The room beyond him is mostly empty, but the exit door is locked. Magic fails to budge the door, and lockpicks simply break. Next to the door is a small table, and on the table is a small gilt cage. There are two things in the cage. One is a key that looks like it might fit the lock; it is taped to the cage floor. The other is a small white rabbit, which is currently asleep.

The actual solution is simply to open the cage, take out the key, and use it to unlock the door. The point of the puzzle, though, is to sit back and laugh while the party goes through ridiculous contortions not to touch the cage or disturb the rabbit.

No. You're right. He put half his 'family' in jeopardy by jumping in the river after the rabbit. He could have been killed (probably as the rabbit swam to shore) and left them both to fend for themselves! How selfish of him.

Actually, if his life is now worth the same or less to him than that of a rabbit, he might as well jump off every bridge he sees.

True, but he's been homeless since he was 14. If you have one possession in the world, particularly a living breathing one, you probably cling to it pretty tight. It could be the only thing keeping him going. Or maybe you aren't as concerned about being hurt or killed when the only thing you have to lose is being lost right in front of you. Dunno, but I think it would be difficult for any farker to put themselves in the mind of a decades-long homeless person in terms of value placed on things unless they've been there.

If you've ever had literally almost nothing maybe you would understand his reaction to seeing what precious little he did have being taken away for no reason.

I look at the stupid shiat I did at 18 and it was nowhere near as dumb as that.

I admit that I should have said the dude is not right in the head instead of saying he's a moron. That was unfair of me.

I saw a similar POS local "policeman" do this to a poor kid's kitten in Honduras ... grabbed it right out of the kid's arms and dangled it by the scruff of its neck over a bridge laughing his ass of at the kid crying the whole time.

I guess it happened a lot down there because nobody seemed to give a crap, but I totally lost my shiat and ran straight at the farker just as he started his toss. I body-checked from behind and sent him lurching over the rail headfirst into the drink. The kitten was still arcing through the air for what seemed forever until I realized that it wasn't time that was creeping, the kitten was actually slowly rising through the air above the river like a furry balloon . The boy was pointing up and begging for someone to help as the little thing kept slowly going higher so I tried getting the cops, but I had pushed him off the bridge.

I found out later that its name was "Patitas".

If your kid were drowning would you waste those 5-10 seconds to "be more sensitive to the rest of the family" or would you take the quickest route to the one in danger?

Sentence should have included, at very least, being thrown off that bridge and into the river with no support except a "happy landing, asshat".

What I found most notable about this story:

He is one of approximately 5,000 homeless people in Ireland at the moment


There's only 5000 homeless people in the entire country of Ireland? I'll bet there's more homeless people than that in Las Vegas.
 
2013-01-16 02:14:41 PM  
I'm confused why a homeless person would have a pet. They have a hard enough time taking care of themselves.
 
2013-01-16 02:14:46 PM  
I know the story is about the rabbit mainly. Protection of animals. Glad the rabbit is ok.

But to me, the real pisser is that he farked with a homeless person (who may or may not have all his faculties). I think if he has been homeless since 14, then there are issues. Maybe not.

I don't care if he just threw that mans backpack off the bridge...if the person who is homeless is in any way challenged mentally....then I would want to do the 18 yr old great bodily harm.

Pick on a person who is disadvantaged and you deserve a solid thumping. Then a couple months in prison.

So, yeah, "massive failure at understanding humanity" is the answer. If you can't understand saving the bunny, I doubt that you can truly understand why someone would risk their lives for much of anything.
