[QUOTE=Croix;33577847]I'm pretty sure most of the people of Facepunch don't live in such a poverty.[/QUOTE] You'd be surprised...
Yeah, I'm in a pretty bad financial situation right now, I have no insurance and my car just got totaled, But I have plenty of friends and family to help me through this. This guy is in a really bad situation, the world really sucks right now. My heart goes out to him.
[QUOTE=papu2;33574615] What the fuck's wrong with some people? It's like these things are the end of the world to you. I could bet that if you lose your keys you're able to get raped twice on your own frontyard before you get back inside the house. And not being able to drive(comeon, I know plenty of people who don't know how to drive. Most don't even own a car, and they still drive)? What? You want to donate him enough money so he can just call a cab whenever he wants to go to the fucking grocery store? He might be half blind but he has two functional legs, and if he's too stupid to get to the grocery store on foot i'm sure he can take the navigator from the car and glue it on his fucking hand so that he wont lose it. Jesus fucking christ.[/QUOTE] Go back to your Ayn Rand books, or jerk off on a picture of Ron Paul, ANYTHING to get you off the forums... please I don't understand how compassionless people like you are able to make it through life without stomping on the face of a baby and getting arrested
[QUOTE=papu2;33571413]Oh boy, Here we go again. People, Keep up the appearances. Life's not what it is unless there's little problems and imperfections here and there, Things don't always go the way we want but this doesn't mean you have to go bother everyone else with your shit.. And now a personal message to this poor man: Sell your shit, Work on it, Deal with it.[/QUOTE] Heartless. It's clear that this man was once happy but now all of a sudden he's in a wreck.
papu2 is a person who refuses to acknowledge that people are born "with only one wing." To fly they need the help of others. Nobody can tackle a challenge like this on their own, no matter what. And even if they're rich, such an event is still tough, but not so much financially as it is emotionally. Telling someone in a situation like this to deal with it on their own is like finding a lost, alone, and helpless puppy, kicking it and then telling it to "deal with it yourself."
Well maybe they should start up a business, make something of themselves, and then buy a wing from the wing store!
[QUOTE=The Aussie;33577105]Jesus, i hope we don't have another LordOfTheFat moment. That guy was an asshole.[/QUOTE] The aftermath was pretty hilarious though.
[QUOTE=Zeke129;33579014]Well maybe they should start up a business, make something of themselves, and then buy a wing from the wing store![/QUOTE] That's incredibly fucking easier said then done. Even then they would still need help. They can't do it 100% their own. :colbert:
To everyone complaining about how he's buying a cab to get groceries or something, watch the video again. He says that's sorted. He also says that he might have to leave the house as a few months without income and having a mortgage will kinda do that to you. The thing that gets me is that he has kids to look after, he is practically alone without his wife, he has no close family, he's been through trauma and he can barely see. Yet he complains/whines about his life a lot less than half of the brats I see on facebook. This guy barely complains at all. He just lays it out on the table and asks for help. I earn $400 AUD a week, $90 car payments $80 fuel to get to my shit job and the rest is genrally food and board money. I donated $100. Fuck the haters.
[QUOTE=The Janitor;33580688] I donated $100. Fuck the haters.[/QUOTE] If you're for real, you are a true winner. :wink:

[QUOTE=papu2;33574615]Do not flame, and you really don't live up to your name, Go grow a pair. Honestly i couldn't give two shits what some kid thinks and i'm not bothered by people using harsh language, But lets not turn this thread into a banfest.[/QUOTE] ban u
[QUOTE=papu2;33574615]And not being able to drive(comeon, I know plenty of people who don't know how to drive. Most don't even own a car, and they still drive)? What? [/QUOTE] He's legally blind, mate.
Wow, papu2, you really are heartless, aren't you?
[QUOTE=papu2;33574615] What the fuck's wrong with some people? It's like these things are the end of the world to you.

[/QUOTE] Well this changed my life, I think I'll be driving blindfolded from here on out, they didn't teach me that to get my license but hey. Why not? Do us all a favour? Next time you are behind the wheel, close your eyes and count to 30.
I'm going to presume this is true and be heartwarming for now. If i find out he was falsifiying this, [I]there will be blood.[/I] But in the meantime: Damn, that sucks, I wish i could donate money but i don't have any.
[QUOTE=Mio Akiyama;33576119]I'd like to see you get things done with half-income, 2 kids and 3 cats to provide for while worrying about how you're going to get through the next few weeks.[/QUOTE] We'll like i said some of you are quite stupid when it comes to this stuff. Get rid of the cats, [b]Go on budget[/b], don't have a xmas. Now here's a small fun fact for you: You noticed something? He's actually quite fat. If things would go bad he could actually survive with the fat for a very long time. But this is of course if things really go bad, One person can easily feed himself by spending 1 dollar a day. Did you know that fatasses can live up to a year without eating?

You don't have to be completely serious and butthurt about everything. [b]THere's small bits of satire here and there[/b] even though i don't think tagging every part of it is necesary and my bottom line is still that you are able to make it through a shit situation. You simply have to give up on certain luxuries.
Hey guys, remember that one Facepunch user who put up a sad story about his christmas, and when he got donations he ran off with the money? Yeah.
[QUOTE=papu2;33582265]We'll like i said some of you are quite stupid when it comes to this stuff. Get rid of the cats, [b]Go on budget[/b], don't have a xmas.

[QUOTE=Drsalvador;33581568] If i find out he was falsifiying this, [I]there will be blood.[/I] [/QUOTE] Well for one, he isn't crying and moaning, he didn't use jump-cuts, he didn't have a sad backing track and he didn't use cue-cards to show his message.
I don't have sound now, so can anyone give a tl;dr?
[QUOTE=Hullu V3;33582969]I don't have sound now, so can anyone give a tl;dr?[/QUOTE] use the caption function, it actually works surprisingly well.
[url]http://jcchristmasmiracle.blogspot.com/[/url] This looks incredibly suspicious lmao [editline]5th December 2011[/editline] [QUOTE=AK'z;33583027]use the caption function, it actually works surprisingly well.[/QUOTE] I just tried this and holy shit google got their shit together with the captions, it's amazing.
[QUOTE=Croix;33584215][url]http://jcchristmasmiracle.blogspot.com/[/url] This looks incredibly suspicious lmao[/QUOTE] It really isn't. His videos in the past have all been about explaining technology with vinyl and things. There's a video where his wife is filming. I don't think it's possible to fake a 15 minute video with a straight face. There are sometimes gullible people who only read the words, but when it's a video, there's not much to say.
Good luck to the guy my thoughts go out to him and his family.

My best regards to the man. Hopefully some good events unfold his way.
[QUOTE=Croix;33582792]Yeah you're totally right, he and his family should starve. Trollaat vaan[/QUOTE] Finally somene who agrees with me. Hys, Pidetään feispunchi ebininä.
