(NYPost)   Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man how to fish and he eats for life. Or you could learn how to use dental floss and glue to reel in gold, jewelry, and cash trapped under city sidewalk grates and pay somebody to catch your fish   (nypost.com) divider line 59

Well, you had to tunnel for that

I saw this on McGuyver once, except it was keys he was fishing from the sewage.

You can't explain that. No one can.
 
2013-04-29 02:27:39 AM
Of course, this is the New York Post, so they clearly made the whole thing up.

Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man how to fish and he finishes off all the fish in the ocean.

Fark it, you can buy fish at the supermarket. Already caught and shiat.

Since this thread went green, I watched 3 episodes of a tv show, wrote 4 pages on a paper I have due soon, I played some guitar and made some tea. And I actually know what I'm talking about in this thread.

You've been arguing out of ignorance without any solution for almost 7 hours now. That's really sad.

$150 a day doesn't sound like a lot to live on in i large and presumably expensive city.  Still pretty cool though.

$40k a year, presumably tax free? Meh, that's teacher money. With a roommate in the Bronx, you could live a humble but comfortable life.

He may not have any withholdings, but he still has to pay taxes.  Plus, no paid sick leave or vacations.  I'd rather manage a burger joint.

I found $2 in cash on the road while I was riding my bike yesterday.

And I found a cell phone case on the road while I was riding my bike 3 years ago.

And I found a $5 bill on the side of the road well I was riding my bike 6 years ago.

So I'm guessing this just doesn't work too well in small towns unless you can learn to live very very cheaply.....

Teach a man to fish, and he will be able to lie and drink beer for a lifetime.

If this guy was really pulling in the money he claims to be, he would never had said a word about it to anyone.

He isn't.

But he is looking for TV interviews, a book deal, etc where he thinks he might actually get a couple hundred bucks for realsies.
 
2013-04-29 04:20:32 AM
So he admits committing theft by finding in a city where the PD actively use stings to bust people for theft by finding? Doesn't seem like a good idea.

Posts to the wrong threads are often embarassing, but this one is more so than most.

If the stuff is lost enough, it's not "theft by finding". Or if you make a "reasonable effort" to find the true owner. At least in my neck of the woods.

If we assume he's making as much as he article claims, on any given afternoon he's an ideal target for a mugging.  And you can just keep getting him over and over, since he always has hundreds of dollars worth of easily fencable jewelery, personal electronics and cash.

Suddenly, like a heron zeroing in on a creek minnow, he freezes and stands over his target. He quickly lowers the sticky lure, which he controls with the precision of an archer.

With a fatal strike, his prey is snagged.

Writer sounds bored.

Surprising how much of that I remembered, from almost 30 years ago.

Making $150 a day in NYC sounds like a fairly quick death by starvation.

Depends where you live.  Downunder he could be charged with "Theft by Finding" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theft_by_finding) or "Fraudulent Appropriation."

Give a man a fish, feed him for a day.
Give a man an ice-cold Keystone Light,
and he won't be so thirsty from that big-ass fish I just gave him.

If I drop something and someone picks it up, they're a thief for not returning it, whether they find it 5 seconds later, or 5 years later.

Wouldn't this only apply to items whose owners can be identified, like the iPhones?

So if you drop a dollar and two years later I find it on the street you would consider me a thief?
 
2013-04-29 06:56:28 AM
Since most items are "pawned", does this mean he plans on getting the items out of pawn, or did they mean he sold them at a pawn shop?

"They say if you give a man a fish, he'll eat for a day, but if you teach a man to fish.... then he's gotta get a fishing license, but he doesn't have any money. So he's got to get a job and get into the Social Security system and pay taxes, and now you're gonna audit the poor cocksucker, 'cause he's not really good with math. So he'll pull the IRS van up to your house, and he'll take all your shiat. He'll take your black velvet Elvis and your Batman toothbrush, and your penis pump, and that all goes up for auction with the burden of proof on you because you forgot to carry the one, 'cause you were just worried about eating a farking fish, and you couldn't even cook the fish 'cause you needed a permit for an open flame. Then the Health Department is going to start asking you a lot of questions about where are you going to dump the scales and the guts. 'This is not a sanitary environment', and ladies and gentlemen if you get sick of it all at the end of the day... not even legal to kill yourself in this country. Thanks again, John Ashcroft, you weird bible addict, can't even handle your own drug. You were born free, you got farked out of half of it, and you wave a flag celebrating it.  "

Teach a man to create an artificial shortage of fish and he eats steak.

Or you can get the occasional internet nutjob who wonders why people kill animals when they can just get all the meat they want at a grocery store
