Yes, that is true, an author usually has presumption of copyright when a work is created, however, things get murky when it is "work for hire" so in those cases it is best to state the copyright holder out of an abundance of caution.

Raul Fernando Gomez Circunegui in May set out to cross the mountains from Chile to Argentina on foot because his motorcycle broke down.

i bet he thought he could throw a football over them too.

I lost forty pounds using the The Uruguayan Rat and Raisin Diet!

I think the last sentence is trying to tell us not to cross the Andes without a companion. A plump, tasty companion.

Um, this first sentence is not just completely pointless, it's completely irrelevant.

See what happens when you find a stranger in the Andes?

"In 1972, a plane carrying an Uruguayan rugby team to Chile crashed in the Andes. Some of the survivors sustained themselves by eating dead bodies."

Meat's meat, and a man's gotta eat!

No, it is brilliant. You just missed the joke.

after he spent a brutal winter eating rats and raisins to survive, local media reported.

I don't want to be the one who has to tell him, "Those weren't raisins".

So he just found some shelther that had sugar and raisins just sitting out there?
 
2013-09-09 05:27:42 PM  
It's just something that is distracting but of no real purpose to anyone.
 
2013-09-09 05:27:53 PM  
I read that same article and thought the same thing. Like planes crashing in the Andes is a common thing.

/well, it kinda was...
//maybe
///snowmelt plane parts!

Google news just had a story about this guy. It said he was fleeing child sex abuse charges. So glad he suffered so that now he can suffer some more.
 
2013-09-09 05:28:05 PM  
If they just found him, didn't he survive a SUMMER in the Andes rather than WINTER?
 
2013-09-09 05:28:24 PM  
of course they ate them after they were dead, only the worst kind of person would have eaten them alive.
 
2013-09-09 05:28:30 PM  
It's not pointless if they get paid by word count.

Raisins are pretty vile.  I'd have to be starving to eat raisins.

I've discovered Fark nearly a decade ago and have never deliberately trolled, till today.  I know, I know, it's against the rules but I just couldn't resist.  Thank you for accommodating me.  I owe you one.

Trolls, how do they work?
 
2013-09-09 05:38:10 PM  
Well how many of us would be willing to eat rats to survive? I probably would imagine it would kill you quicker.
 
2013-09-09 05:42:36 PM  
I've noticed that that particular piece of information gets tacked onto almost all news articles about the region for some reason...
 
2013-09-09 05:42:38 PM  
"The truth is that this is a miracle. We still can't believe it," San Juan Governor Jose Luis Gioja told the local Diario de Cuyo newspaper. "We let him talk to his wife, his mother and his daughter. ... I asked him, 'Are you a believer?' He told me, 'No, but now I am.'"

Now Muriel plays piano every Friday at the Hollywood
And they brought me down to see her and they asked me if I would
Do a little number, and I sang with all my might
And she said "Tell me are you a Christian child?"
And I said "Ma'am I am tonight"
Walkin' in San Juan...

Andes, schmandes. A real rat & raisin eatin' badass would go backpacking through the Atacama with nothing but a piece of flint, a switchblade, and a VHS of panda porn.
 
2013-09-09 05:50:23 PM  
Well..they did not tell you he started his Andes excursion with several friends....

Whole article is pointless:

"'A miracle': Walker survived four months lost in Andes by eating"

Unless it is like in the last sentence -- that he had to eat humans -- who the fark cares? An animal's an animal; meat is meat.

Spend all your life being a good person, and that they don't remember. But eat one dead guy....

And here is evidence you can spend 10 years looking at something and still not be any good at it.

Example #2 is porn.

Uh...call me stupid for not knowing this...I like the outdoors as much as the next guy...but uh...how in the hell did they find him dehydrated when they were surrounded by snow?

At first glance of the headline I thought it said Walker survived four months  in Los Angeles by eating rats .

bigbobowski: of course they ate them after they were dead, only the worst kind of person would have eaten them alive.


Hey now, I like to eat my women when they are alive. That way I don't need a refrigeration unit to keep them fresh... I also like to hear them scream, dead bodies don't scream...

Does that make me the worst kind of person?...
