    [–] Homeless man talks openly about being addicted to heroin JagerBaBomb 1 points ago in videos

    Societal problems are always at the root of everything.

    My point is that these people--the ones living behind where I work, and others very much like them--have transitioned to criminals in mind and deed. And while it was facilitated by their addictions, true, it becomes very hard to bring them back from that; degraded ethics without a sense of remorse does not a good combination make. And they have to come willingly, besides.

    I must say, I don't have a hopeful outlook for 95% of them. From what I've seen, most of these people are happy right where they are, which is tragic.

    Right, but how did it chew? Because I imagine it went down like rubber.

    Hence my thinking you're just a fanboy.

    Not a bot, and not necessarily an instigator. Though, hey, if it happens, it happens, amirite?

    It's both.

    So I have a friend who went through the whole thing this guy was, just short of going full homeless. He went into treatment and now he's doing very well--better than me, it should be pointed out, and engaged.

    But I also work in front of a wooded area that's been colonized by the seedier element of the homeless community--all of them hopelessly addicted to heroin. And it does feed into the problems in the area. The store has been broken into twice since I've been working here, and the lock to the trunk on my car doesn't work anymore because someone clearly tried to force it with a screwdriver.

    To say nothing of them destroying a protected wetland area by living there and literally trashing the place. They were responsible for clogging the drainage ditch attached to said wetland, leading to huge overflows of runoff backing up into our parking lot. We know this because when the city crews showed up to fix the problem, they found all their trash.

    This while there's literally two dumpsters just outside the treeline that they are more than welcome to use.

    I wish it weren't so, but quite often, heroin nurtures and brings out the worst elements in human nature. It's a scourge in that it destroys lives--either of the people using it, or those of the people surrounding them.

    Treatment is ideal, but it only works if the user wants it to. And those people behind my shop, out in the woods? The ones I've talked to seemed unrepentant. And deeply unpleasant.

    [–] Don’t crowd surf where killer whales play... JagerBaBomb 2 points ago in WTF

    Reminds me of this time back when I was 14 and at Warped Tour and some mammoth dude was crowd surfing on a really thin density portion of the crowd near the outskirts and kicked me upside the back of my head with his ridiculous romperstomper boot.

    Shit, I was there for a reason, damnit. Why the fuck am I having to contend with a 6'4" dude built like a tank and his damn huge feet all up in my headspace?

    Well, he got passed to me, as it were, and basically everyone around us scattered while I went down to one knee with this fucking enormous man, prone, on his back, balanced on my shoulder like I'm goddamn Atlas.

    Adrenaline is a hell of a drug, because I stood back up--keeping him perched as he was on my shoulder--and obliged to pass him along to his next destination: a mid-size throng of older teenage girls. Who promptly all went down with this piece of shit, Mid-West looking slab of hamhock on top of them.

    Fuck crowd surfers.

    As if we weren't there, watching it happen in real time. Try correcting the record elsewhere.
