Dumbass Idea of the Week: Worst. Thief. Ever.

A guy in Massachusetts makes out with a coin collection worth over $100,000.  Some might be thinking, "hmm, that's a pretty good heist," and it was.  There's just one problem though:  the guy spent the coin collection on pizza and a movie at face value.

Apparently, he didn't realize that the Liberty quarter he had was worth way more than 25 cents.  In fact, it was worth over $1,000.

It doesn't pay to break the law, but apparently it pays even less to be a gigantic dumbass about it.  You can read the original article here.

That is funny.

It's the kinda thing that makes people believe in Karma and the Golden Rule.

In reality, it's what happens when people who live in a communal society behave stupidly.

Were it not for that communal society, such a thing wouldn't be funny, or ironic, let alone strange to any code like the Golden Rule or Karma.

It's just coincidentally ironic. And more funny than some people might think.

Positive proof that Ignorance is NOT Bliss.

Some people have fantastic luck -- all of it bad.

Poor schnook!

Jack, old buddy, old friend, would you please consider removing the necessity to copy those stupid "code words and numbers?"

It's no only a pin in the ass, it's a FUCKING pain in the ass.

Every time I try to post, it takes three to five efforts -- sometimes more -- to get the God-damned thing to publish.

If you can't, I'll understand, but please give it some thought.

Thanks,

Okay, FT, I finally understand what you mean. I had them on originally to combat spam, but I'll take it off for a while and see if I even need them at all.

Thanks, Jack. you're a prince.

I'm sure it will encourage more "traffic" to come your way.

I hardly have any trouble with SPAM at all, but then FreeThinke's Blog hasn't been around very long either.

There are days when SPAM seems better than no commentary at all. ;-)

Keep posting!
