Just admit it
Looks like a poor homeless person to me. Never seen a drunk person do that personally.
I'm not getting the .rar part.
How does that image have anything to do with a .rar file? Because he's packed up or something?
I laughed more at the thought of him looking like a water cooler tank.
I felt kinda bad for the guy. People like him are freezing on the streets while others have 600 full time staff to run their home...strange world...
Some people prefer beer and pot to food and shelter.
What does that have to do with what he said?
Seems a tad off topic. Are you insinuating that every homeless person is an alcoholic/drug addict?
Kind of sad actually... looks to me like a person that has no place to go and is dealing with the elements best he can.
Here is the original image. I just don't understand how someone looked at that image and said "LOL looks drunk!" Has anyone actually seen a drunk person do this? Judging by his dirty clothes, work boots and location, it really doesn't look like he just partied too hard at the clubs the night before. It looks like sleeping outside is a regular thing for him. Depressing.
I bet you $5 that's in Russia..
Can anyone source?
Alcoholism can play a big part in homelessness.
While he worded his statement a tad poorly, and addiction is not always considered a preference, being an alcoholic means that you take precedence over having "600 staff to maintain your home"
Tis disease really... not a choice from what I from what I have seen.
Sad when it goes to this level.
There is a brilliant article titled "The disease concept of alcoholism" I actually cited it in one of my papers not that long ago. Worth a read if you're interested in the subject. I've uploaded it to my drop box as a .pdf if anyone is interested.
Ya I don't know any educated person who could honestly say that someone with a healthy mind would choose Alcohol and Drugs over living in a home with a full staff. It really is a disease, and can be physical, mental, or both. Some people don't consider themselves strong enough to deal with the withdrawals even when given the choice to get help getting sober.
I have seen family members deal with withdrawals from years of prescription pain medication (legit reasons, paraplegic), and I myself had a very hard time physically coming off morphine after only a few weeks of use in the hospital. Once your body becomes physically dependent, it isn't just a choice between being drunk and being sober, you have to put your body through hell to get well again, some people dont survive it.
for a while I thought the picture was a fake.
Alcoholism or a dependence on alcohol isn't formed overnight though. Typically it begins purely because of of the chemical reaction that goes on in the brain. A person seeks to recreate that feeling so they go back for more. Eventually, in really bad cases, it goes on to that person feeling as though they need the alcohol to get through to the day. That's when you have a disease, a mental one.
Same can be said for just about anything. Alcohol, drugs, video games, hell even IM.
I don't really know if I could say alcoholism is a disease for all. It's kind of like the topic of whether depression is genetic or not.
Regardless, poor guy. I swear if I was rich I'd try to help every homeless person I could. I've never had a bad run in with a homeless person. They are such kind people. Sure, some of them did end up their because of their own choices..doesn't mean they deserve it though. We all make mistakes in life, seriously.
