I knew before even opening the article that it would be an American.

The worst part was that there was no cell reception in the crater and her couldn't upload his content until what passes for emergency services there got him out. ZERO STARS

Brain clouds can make you stupid shit.

Why would you post this, subby? The headline teases the possibility that another smartass zoomer got just desserts, only to find out he lived--unscathed.

If they recovered the phone I really hope that the police force him and his family to give them access to their phones and that they then delete the photos. That would make for a nice little "kick 'em when they are down" to whatever punishment they get.

"Forbidden route." Pish posh. All routes have names like that on the volcano of terror.

Heh.

My in-laws were fairly prolific European travelers.  They'd fairly regularly take guided tours with both bus and ship segments.  There was a couple on one of their tours that was chronically late, chronically misinformed and felt the need to try to offer facts anyway, etc.  After awhile they got nicknamed "Moe and Schmoe".

They missed the tour bus more than once, being forced to take taxis to try to catch up at the next stop.  But their crowning achievement was after the tour had changed to the cruise ship portion, and they missed getting back to port before the ship pulled out for its next destination.  And again, Moe and Schmoe spent extra money to catch-up to the ship rather than simply being put off the tour for the remainder.  If I'm accurately remembering what my in-laws said, they had to cross an international border to meet the ship in its next port.

Should we feel bad for him? No.

So I'm rappelling down Mount Vesuvius when suddenly I slip, and I start to fall. Just falling, ahh ahh, I'll never forget the terror. When suddenly I realize "Holy shiat, Hansel, haven't you been smoking Peyote for six straight days, and couldn't some of this maybe be in your head?" And it was. I was totally fine. I've never even been to Mount Vesuvius.

Charge him / them for every second of manpower and equipment / supplies used in the rescue.
Fine him / them into poverty.
Put him / them in a rowboat and push it in the general direction of open ocean.

What always got me is how the Joe's were always returning from the Isle of No Return.

Next let him swim in those hot pools in Yellowstone.

I bet it is an American

Clicks Sun link

Yep. American and other Americans jump the turnstile and avoid paying the park fee, then fark up so badly at the top that a rescue is required and criminal charges follow.

Way to go dumbasses.  Pretty soon these places are going to charge Americans double or straight up ban us.

I hope he goes to jail and his parents have to pay out the ass to get him out of it.

Does it seem to be more often than not Americans who do this stuff, or am I just sensitive?

/for shame.
