Internet Historian, anyone?
@Good Guy Satan, I've watched that vido more times than I can count.
@The Flame War, No shame in that. I've done the same with the Shia LaBeouf flag vidoes
@Good Guy Satan, same
Pay thousands of dollars to suffer through a weekend of shíthole country conditions, while watching some chaos unfold like something out of "Lord of the flies", seeing high class hot sluts and trying to hook up with one, all the while at an island in the Bahamas, and then win a lawsuit and potentially get $5 million like 2 dudes from NC did.
I'd do it. I've been through worse. Sounds very worth it, and I hope Josh's luck pays off
@Kangaroo Jacked, sounds like an awesome reality show.
I think it’s kinda crappy that people find enjoyment in watching “rich people” get scammed by Fyre Fest just because they were rich. True it probably didn’t hurt them too much in the pocket but it still sucks they got scammed and we’re trapped on an island with barely any water, no usable restrooms, no food, barely livable shelter, and no way of leaving, and had literally no idea what to do. Most of them are kids in their twenties who just wanted to have a good time and listen to good music on an island in the Bahamas. You can’t seriously look me in the eye and tell me if you had that kind of money in your twenties you wouldn’t have wanted to attend, and that you wouldn’t have been upset at getting put in that situation.
@Diddle Kid, I think it’s all a matter of perspective. There’s some folks on the planet that would look at those conditions and say that it’s better than their everyday life...
@A Blunt Object, the tents were torn and the mattresses were soaked from a storm. Not only that but there weren’t even enough tents for the amount of people they sold tickets to. There was a guy who admitted to sabotaging tents around his because he didn’t want neighbors by ripping tents and pissing on mattresses. Sure it’s a matter of perspective but being happy something crappy happened to someone just because they’re more well off than you just makes you sound like a prick. (I don’t mean you specifically, “you” referring to anyone my comment might apply to.)
@Diddle Kid, it's pure envy. They're envious of those who are better or more successful than them, and think that justifies wishing harm or suffering to those people. If you look at other opinions and beliefs these people hold, you see envy is at the core of it. "Free" 'X' will probably pop up a lot
@Kangaroo Jacked, it’s sad because being born into a wealthy family doesn’t make you any more deserving of being scammed than anyone else. They were essentially sold Coachella but on a Bahamian Island surrounded by super models, with infinite alcohol and luxury living quarters. What they got were destroyed FEMA tents, piss soaked mattresses, no drinkable water, showers that spewed sewage, and absolute chaos. Their luggage was thrown off an 18 wheeler truck bed on the ground into a sea of people. Rich or poor you probably don’t want people to just throw your stuff on the ground. A lot of people slept in the bus station where there was no AC and temps reached like 120 degrees. A lot of people passed out from dehydration because they didn’t have any water. They’re lucky people didn’t die.
@Diddle Kid, I think the inverse also applies though. As it’s not the end of the world that you had to live a few days in conditions that are similar to a bad camping trip.
Yeah being scammed sucks, and no one deserves that, we can all agree there.
The thing is when you act like it’s the end of your life because you had to temporarily live in conditions that are still better than some permanent living conditions that folks deal with it smacks of being completely out of touch with the real world.
I think that’s what the OP is truly going for, the lack of self awareness shown by some, not all, of the attendees.
@A Blunt Object, I think it’s completely unreasonable to expect 20 somethings stuck in a foreign country with no way out to not freak out, especially when they have no way of knowing when they are gonna get home, because some people in the world have it worse. By that logic no one in America is allowed to be upset by anything ever.
@Diddle Kid, I don’t see the problem in finding a little humor in the misfortune of others as long as they aren’t seriously hurt or have their life ruined. We do it literally every day whether we realize it or not.
@Jolee Bindo, there’s a difference in finding humor in the situation (there was plenty, I was laughing my @ss off during both documentaries) and saying that they deserved it purely because they went in the first place.
@Diddle Kid, I never said they couldn’t be upset, but acting like you (as in the folks on the island) were in a war zone makes you seem completely disconnected from reality...
@Diddle Kid, this is so sad can we cannibalize rich people
