Why would someone steal a teddy bear?
 
2020-07-29 11:46:46 PM  
I LOVE YOU RYAN REYNOLDS!

Your restraining order against me isn't restraining my love for you.

I will always have the clip of you breathing in your sleep that someone obtained while laying under your bed one cold January night.  It was dusty by the way.

Sweet dreams teddy bear.

Sometimes, that Helper is Deadpool.

abhorrent1: Why would someone steal a teddy bear?


It was in a backpack that was stolen. It had a voice recording of the young owner's deceased mother in it, so as you can imagine they really hoped to get it back. I'm glad it's been returned.

It was in a bag with a bunch of other stuff left on the sidewalk accidentally during a move. A homeless guy picked it up hoping for something good and returned the bear when the story went public.

This is a false flag attempt at trying to make people happy.

I'm not buying it.

You don't get to be happy.

If the homeless guy just thought he was trash scavenging, and still kept the teddy bear before returning it, maybe they should give him another teddy bear along with the reward.

not quite how it went down.
homeless dude stole it, Vancouver media went crazy, another homeless guy (who apparently had beef with first guy) took it from the first guy and returned it.

I felt awful for that poor lady, glad this one had a happy ending.

Now I hope she records the audio and uploads it to a cloud/thumb drives.

There was a story on Fark maybe a decade ago about an elderly gentleman who had the voice of his deceased wife of many years as their VM greeting, he'd call it up when feeling lonely as it was the only recording of her voice he had.

Whatever company he had service through updated their VM stuff (something like that) which wiped out the recording and the poor guy was heartbroken. I don't believe he was able to get the recording put back up or otherwise get his hands on the file. IIRC they had been emailing their customers of what was going to happen in regards to VM but the poor guy either didn't get it or didn't understand it because hey, tech wasn't exactly his thing. I don't blame the company for it because this is the real world and it can suck sometimes but the quotes from the guy were really tough to read.

According to the OG story it had a switch, other electronics and important paperwork (passports, visas, etc.) with it.

So they weren't after the bear.

rcain: Ryan Reynolds is an awesome guy

On the subject of Deadpool - why the fark hasn't Disney put that on Hulu yet? Which it now owns outright 

When is Disney going to grow the fark up, put aside their pathetic puritan image and learn to deal with adult subject matter?

FARK U DISNEY! YOU OWN DEADPOOL, GIVE UT TO US!! GIVE IT TO US NOW!!!


The cable and streaming rights are still a little complicated for the Fox properties right now. A lot of the deals Fox previously signed are still in effect, which is why Days of Future Past and Apocalypse just showed up on Disney+, while Dark Phoenix, First Class, and the first X-Men are on HBO Max. Netflix still has a few Disney movies from an agreement that preexisted Disney+ as well, but those will come over eventually, too.

I think we can all agree that Ryan Reynolds is the new, more charming, far kinder, Bill Brasky.

"Did someone say Ryan Reynolds?! Ryan Reynolds sired all three of my kids and gave my prize whippet a full litter of puppies! One of those pups went on to win the Kentucky Derby!"

"The Kentucky Derby is for horses!"

"And that little gray half-Reynolds bastard beat every one of 'em! To Ryan Reynolds!"

"TO RYAN REYNOLDS!"

I helped a very non-tech savvy coworker with a situation like that a few years ago. His granddad had just died, so I helped him save the last voicemail he ever got from him. It was an extremely inelegant solution, we were at work and I just used a 1/8 inch stereo cable to get it from his phone into Windows as a wav file. I never knew either of my grandfathers, so it felt like the right thing to do.

Also, as far as I am aware Comcast still has a 1/3 stake in Hulu, that definitely could complicate things.

abhorrent1: Why would someone steal a teddy bear?


It wasn't stolen, or at least not the bear specifically.

It was in a backpack that either got lost or stolen in the course of moving to a new apartment at some point.  There's a strong possibility that it literally fell off the back of the truck instead of euphemistically falling off the back of the truck.

// Albeit, there's probably some legal issues around not returning the rest of it regardless, since some of the other contents apparently involved identifying documents that'd make returning it trivial if the initial loss was accidental.

I save my fathers voice mails to my phone. (He is 79 and slowly declining). When I'm  playing music they sometimes rotate through the Playlist. He and I were hanging out one day while I was at his house doing one chore or the other he had called me over to do for him and I was playing music through a Bluetooth speaker. One of his vms played and he asked "Why do you save them? I'm right here." I told him "Pop, you won't always be and I'm just making sure I have a way to keep you with me."

When I had wrapped everything up and was getting ready to leave, he did something he had never done. I went to give him the standard adult father/son hug and tell him "I'll see you later pop", which he normally acts like he hates, but he grabbed me pretty tight, hugged me and said "You know I love you son, and I'm proud of you!".

/love my pop

audio engineer hobbyist here. I will do that for anyone who asks. I'll clean it up too. Not alter, make clearer. I once miked a cell phone while it called a number so we could record the voice message. Good on you.
