Which I think, btw, is a good thread for dumb@$$es. In fact like 9/10 of our posts there fit that category.

Sup.

Because they're attention whores. They have the "Look at me" syndrome. They're thinking, "What's the point of having wads of cash if no ones knows you have it?"

Oddly enough, that is what I would be thinking- in reverse. "I have wads of cash, no one knows about it, let's keep it that way."

Ironic that Doom's ego wouldn't get in the way of a crime.

I've seen several stories of fools flaunting their ill gotten goods on social media way too many times. They just love the attention and fame.

There was one dude that was thrilled to see the police posted his picture and profile on their website as a wanted criminal and the dude liked it on his facebook page. The cops found him and arrested his dumbass.

Racoons are scary. Not to look at, really, but they are famously extremely nasty. I'm amazed the drunk guy was able to catch the thing in the first place. I wonder how many of his scratches and bites were gained in THAT part of the operation.

That story was FAR too good to be true. It would have been awesome if it was, though.

Well, looks like I was surprised by the same aspect of that story as the writer of the article.

Here's something fitting the title of this thread:

Quote:
Schoolboy killed while taking extreme selfie

A schoolboy fell to his death while trying to take an ‘extreme selfie’ from the roof of a nine-story building.

The teenager, identified only as Andrey R, had climbed to the top of the building in Vologda, Russia, to add the selfie to his collection of photographs in dangerous places.

But, as he attempted the picture in the fading light of the evening, the boy slipped and fell.

^In the book Death in Yellowstone, way before the age of "selfies" they listed multiple deaths of people who backed off a cliff or poked a bear or some darned thing for a better picture. I remember one of them reminded me of Hot Hots: Part Deux because a husband kept telling his wife to back up for a shot at Upper Falls and she went right over.

Alpha Chi Omega at Arizona State University would like to thank the Arizona Diamondbacks and Fox Sports for reaching out to the chapter after last night’s game and subsequent media frenzy. We appreciate their generous offer of tickets to tonight’s game. However, instead of chapter members attending the game, we have asked the Diamondbacks and Fox Sports to provide tickets to a future game for families at A New Leaf, a local non-profit that helps support victims of domestic violence.

Today, October 1, marks the beginning of Domestic Violence Awareness Month. If everyone who viewed this statement took the time to make a donation in recognition of domestic violence awareness, which is Alpha Chi Omega’s national philanthropy, we would be so grateful! We are happy to have the opportunity to shed some positive light on such a sensitive subject. All proceeds will go directly to A New Leaf to help struggling Arizona families get back on their feet by providing housing, food, childcare and more. You can donate using the link below. We appreciate your support!

^It sure looked that way. Wow! I'm betting that kid is privileged and comes from family money. Still, there's no way that he'll be able to live that down. That was douchebaggery at its finest.

I dunno about the Family with Money thing. The article says he was kicked out of UMass Amherst...which, dude. You got kicked out of ZooMass?
Regardless of its reputation, it's a state school which is really reasonably priced for in-state students.

I can't speak to UConn's price point.
But yeah...privileged is indeed a good word for him.

Curious what would have happened to him if he wasn't a white dude-bro.

A valid question, though I've always kind of gotten the impression that college campuses are kind of insulated in some ways from the larger world. It is possible that a drunken college student acting like a jerk in a college cafeteria (that is where this was, right? I've got no sound here) might be treated similarly whatever the race, whereas that same drunken fool might be treated very differently based on race down the road doing the same thing at, say, Applebee's. (Not that I'm saying Applebee's is somehow especially racist, just that outside the college environment race might be a bigger factor).

only thing that makes me give this a pass is that the kid was drunk; had that NOT been the case, then Id say he clearly deserves the "F'n Dumbass" mark being stamped on his head......

I'm not sure that'd make me cut him that much slack. Is this the first time he's EVER been drunk? Most people I knew in college managed not to be that big a jerk even while drunk, and anybody that WAS that big a jerk while drunk would know it after the first time, when everybody told him, "Hey, you're a real jerk when you're drunk!" If he then proceeds to get drunk again anyway, I'm not giving him a pass on his ridiculous drunken behavior.

From the link:
Quote:
The blog Only in Amherst reports Gatti was previously a student at UMass Amherst, where he was arrested twice for run-ins with cops last September. According to police reports about the first incident, an officer told Gatti to move out of the street, so he “raised his left hand in a ‘Hook-em-horns’-like gesture and shouted fuck you nigger” at an officer.

He then allegedly yelled “Fuck you! I only said ‘fuck you,’ ... so fuck you!”

He was charged with disorderly conduct.

In the second incident, he was charged with assault and battery against a police officer, who reportedly suffered arm and hand injuries.
Personally, I think the kid more than earns F'n Dumbass for being drunk and disorderly while underage and sporting an open container.

When I got trashed in college I at least had the decency to stay in my room, or off campus all together.
