    Will you die old and alone.....

    Will you die old and alone..... or in the company of and at the same time as a number of like minded individuals?

    This clip made apparent to me why the cartels enjoy such vast power in Mexico, the corruption of the population at large - just look how many are taking part in the most retarded of crimes. Mass criminality seems to be present in Mexico, and that explains the ever present poverty and the huge chasm between the rich and the poor. And yes, the wandering flames after the explosion are human torches.

    Many people don't like being alone and unfortunately it leads to the cartels you showed as well as the gang problems in many cities. The "my gang is better than your gang" ego trip tends to lead to headlines talking about banning firearms from honest people.

    Oops, looks like I also posted this after you. Sorry. But hey, it could be worse. We could be running across a field on fire.

    I'm probably going to hell for this, but that is just fucking funny.

    I've lived around these people all my life, and if there is one rule in that community it's. "if it ain't locked up, bolted down, and chained ,it's your fault i stole it "
    If i leave my garden hose in the front yard it's gone. my wifes potted plants have been stolen from the front yard, all of the people on my street have had the same problem, shit we've probably helped a few landscaping entrepreneurs start on their path to the american dream.


    One of the best indications of how mexicans look at thievery; when they move into the neighborhood the FIRST thing they do is build a security perimeter fence around their entire property, which is fucking hilarious in itself. but hey, they know their own people.

    Old and alone? What qualifies as "old"? 60? 65? What age?
    As for "alone", we are ALL alone within our own skins. We can have others around us but they come and go.
    Makes me think of the old warning - "Shoot 'em all. Let God sort it out."

    You figure the raw gas smell alone would keep most people away, but no. That said, nothing smells as bad as burnt people.

    It's crazy. A gush of gas that looks like a backhoe has hit a city water line. Who the f would get near that, let alone steal from it.

    I don't know if this was country wide, but about 5-6 years ago there was a rash of copper theft from commercial building and construction sites. It went on for about 2-3 yrs before the city passed an ordinance that made it a felony for scrap yards to take more than 50 lbs without getting ID and license plate #s, that slowed it down quite a bit.

    I got an emergency call from a Petsmart warehouse after a bad summer storm. Someone had gotten on the roof and stole all of the copper condensation drain lines from the huge HVAC units, they had cut the pipes at roof level to get that last 3" of copper and when it rained the warehouse lost $150,000 in damaged merchandise, that didn't include the cost of replacing almost 1000 ft of copper pipe, it was a big haul for the thieves. That happened a lot.

    Another popular method was to get on the roof of unoccupied commercial bldgs and ransack all the HVAC units for copper and aluminum.

    I'm pretty sure the folks doing this were pros, i've done a lot of demo work and it would take a fast 8 man crew 6-8 hours and at least two trucks to scrap out 15 - 20 ton units

    My son does hvac, mostly new construction. A lot of the houses have gotten ransacked lately. How much is copper going for? It must be a butt ton.
