Um....because that would kill all the fish and ensure no future fishing trips?

The 16-year-old took matters into his own hands after the angling club refused to let him use his diving suit

FTA:
And though he didn't recover his phone, he was unapologetic.

'It almost worked,' he insisted.


Dosen't he know what else almost worked?

Should have snuck back in with his diving gear and some good lights.

It's not like they won't refill it. Also, there are other ponds. And they're only fish.

Isn't the real story here that someone installed a toilet that drains into the parking lot?

It's Germany. It's more surprising it's not draining to someones shower.

You know who else wouldn't take no for an answer and insisted that it almost worked?

I like how it says iPhone but then the boy says datacard. IPhones do not have external memory! Lieing little shiat!

Lake or pond?
 
2014-08-03 08:08:42 AM  
If you lost your phone in a lake, what good would draining a pond do?

Ha Ha Ha! Destroying wildlife habitat is hilarious

this. Let it go its gone.    Even if you found it its toast and the data is probably not gonna be savable.

Now that would have been more intelligent and likely successful.  But I have to give him props for the attempt.

Toilet is probably the next step up from a portapotty -- feeds into a septic tank which is pumped into a truck regularly. Tank filled up, toilet overflowed water across the grass and into the parking lot.

Well, at some point in the draining process, the lake does become a pond... then a puddle...

Why wouldn't they let him use his diving suit? Presumably he brought the suit along to, um, use it anyway?

Yes, the "there are other (things)" and "they're only (creatures)" arguments are the reason the state of the global environment is in grave condition today. Please don't breed, and if you already have, please arrange a murder-suicide.

I dropped my phone in a lake while on a fishing trip last week, so I'm getting a kick...
 
2014-08-03 11:26:39 AM  
And that was his final solution?

Germans are born thinking they do in fact own the whole planet.
