i also liked the bit where he was expecting media attention for his epic quest across america, like he's forrest gump or something. like yeah walking a super long distance is impressive and notable but it's also not really the kind of thing that gets on the news, a few hundreds of people through hike the appalachian trail every year and nobody cares

E: To contribute, my best celebrity encounter was Ice-Tís agent calling me at a very large dialup ISP on a Saturday. I, as a technical support nerd, informed the agent that we couldnít reset Mr Tís password (yes I said it like that) because Customer Service was closed on the weekend. He brought Ice on the line so my dumb 16 year old rear end could repeat that, which I did with a slightly shakier voice.

Ice-T told me it was cool and not to worry about it.

Did you ask him what his first dogís name was?

He's bipolar and everyone pegged him as being in a bad manic episode within the first couple pages and tried to point this out to him iirc.

I'm glad he didn't die in the literal desert every cartoon models deserts off of and where he'd have his bones picked apart by Looney Toons vultures while they go "eh, it's a living!" I also think there is a level of humor in that he was an oblivious manchild with well-off family and seemed to keep trying mostly out of personal ego and in spite of plenty of reasonable arguments for why he was putting himself in life-threatening danger though.

All right, that does make it a bit less funny.

If he wanted people to stop and talk to him, the cart was a bad choice. Especially in the San Francisco area, if you see a bedraggled man shoving a cart full of cheap camping gear through a public park, you're going to assume he's homeless, and you've already been hit up for change 10 times since you left your house this morning so you avoid him. Also if I remember correctly, he was basing his gear and route on a guy whose name was something like "Hobo Ron".

I think people even pointed out actual cross-country hiking trails, including the American Discovery Trail (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Discovery_Trail) which has a terminus in Point Reyes National Park, the same loving place he was starting from. Actually, typing that out... had he actually been convinced to do the ADT instead of his Google Maps route before he started?

"Hobo Nick" lol who, goons speculated, may have had his parents watching over the trip and asking strangers to give him money to keep him alive.

and yes he was convinced to do the ADT instead of the google maps car route

Looking at before and after photos of Appalachian trail hikers should be enough to show how bad an idea an out of shape goon going on a cross country hike is.

As dumb as Muerte's plan was Hobo Nick is actually a real person and he has a blog where you can read about his trip here and on twitter. Whether Muerte actually talked with him or not who can say, but it seems like a stupid thing to make up.

this is fuckin rad and reminds me of when @fart/docevil was a guest on HLN because the news network did zero homework and booked him, Jon Hendren @fart, instead of journalist John Hendren @johnhendren. they asked him about edward snowden and he starts off normal but then goes into, "just because he had scissors for hands" and "yes edward scissorhands is definitely a hero to me"

he probably did have some correspondence with hobo nick. goons were asking questions because in nick's journey there were people who like, gave him a $100 bill out of kindness, which maybe was the parents pulling some strings behind the scenes?

Don't get my name wrong,
If you want to touch me there.

Another "funny" part of it is after he passed out in a public park within city limits, his reaction was not "Gosh, this is a bit harder than I thought. I doubt I would have made it across the country.', but instead "Nobody stopped me to talk so I could tell them that mental illness exists. That's not fair. Also I totally would have made it all the way across America if not for ... reasons. Ah well, better try to drive across in a Mercedes. Coz that's totally the same thing."

There's no doubt he was mentally ill, (I think he said he was bi-polar and autistic.), but he was also a massive arsehole who would not take advice from people who knew better, and was totally convinced that he and he alone was a super duper altruist, and that by taking donations from friends and family for gas money, he was actually saving the world.

That's exactly what it was, and pretty much everyone who posted in that thread should have been banned. Actually the OP should have been banned for mental self-care reasons before it even got past first page. But what do you expect from this hellsite.
