  • What da f**k.. I’ve watched a few news feeds about the state of California and in particular homeless people who are just dropping their trousers and taking a shit/piss in the streets, in full view of pedestrians, motorists, residents and shoppers. One woman was leaning/squatting up against a drinks fridge outside a open and serving restaurant. She was scratching her scabby, abscess legs while taking a shit in front of onlookers and dinner’s. The restaurant owner said it was keeping his customers away.
    It wasn’t the shooting up drugs and discarded needles, that I found OTT but the acceptance by police/authorities and public that has allowed this to become normal behaviour.


    How did the modern world get so fked up.

  • We worry about infectious diseases and viruses, apparently rats are now spreading hepatitis to humans.


    Rats are infecting humans with hepatitis, and nobody knows how

    In 2018, infectious disease experts at the University of Hong Kong came across an unusual patient.

    The 56-year-old man, who had undergone a liver transplant, was showing abnormal liver functions with no obvious cause.

    Tests found that his immune system was responding to hepatitis E -- but they couldn't actually find the human strain of the hepatitis E virus (HEV) in his blood.

    Hepatitis E is a liver disease that can also cause fever, jaundice and an enlarged liver. The virus comes in four species, which circulate in different animals; at the time, only one of these four was known to infect humans.


    With tests for that human strain of HEV negative, the researchers redesigned the diagnostic test, ran it again -- and found, for the first time in history, rat hepatitis E in a human.

    "Suddenly, we have a virus that can jump from street rats to humans," said Dr. Siddharth Sridhar, a microbiologist and one of the HKU researchers who made the discovery. It was such an unusual and unprecedented infection that the team wondered if it was a "one-off incident, one patient who was in the wrong place at the wrong time."

  • what the rats or folk having to avoid stepping in human shit when walking down the street?

    I remember a friends daughter playing with my daughter in the early 1990’s. The laughter was so loud I went to see what they were laughing at. My friends daughter had taken a shit on the back yard. Much to the amusement of my daughter. The laughter was because my Alsations scrambled to eat it. It turns out, that’s how they shit in their village in Bali, Indonesia, shit where they know dogs can get at it.


    It’s not like there’s an abundance or free roaming street dogs in California. They would make light work of it Im sure. Probably overdosed on the illicit drugs too.

  • Sounds like the rats are cleaner than the people.
    I took a shit in a woods once, I was miles from any loo and it was coming out wether I liked it or not. Now if I was in the same situation in a city I’d at least try and hide then run because I’d be sooo embarrassed.
    maybe these people have repeatedly asked to use the restaurants toilets and they’ve said no and it’s a dirty protest, or something along those lines. I don’t know but surely you’d try and hide?

    :thumbup: I think it’s a numbers game :D

  • This makes me feel so sad that a human being, in a rich country like America, should have been allowed to sink down to a position where privacy and dignity are no longer important.


    It's a disgrace to us all, to everyone who walks past and tuts, to every government that cuts funding for homeless people, for vulnerable people, for people with mental issues or difficulties. I feel so sad that we have come to this.

  • Whilst I'm not condoning taking a dump in front of diners etc it's a sad reflection on society that crapping in public has been forced into people's minds as a shameful practice and must be hidden away at all costs. One thing the Romans failed to leave us.

    If you take a regular look at what comes out you might see a problem before you feel it. Advance warning never a bad thing where health concerned.

  • . strangely enough I kinda expect it to take place in Africa, India etc. Running onto the beach or an area “off the beaten track” happens all over the world when folk are caught short.
    With increased homelessness and setting up tents where possible, they will need facilities to meet their needs. In a Sanctuary City you would think one of those millionaire celebrities living close by, could sponsor a street toilet or two and not just let it become a health risk.

  • If in the USA they have such a massive population of homeless and inmates it is just a fault of their society. They claim to be the land of the free or other bullshit like that but freedom without social rights is just freedom to starve. Now they have a president that is the perfect frontsman for the selfishness and irresponsibility of their ruling class. And their working class is going to pay a high price for being so stupid, they always fall into the rhetoric trap of "left means more taxes, socialism, communism, tyranny, Stalin, and blah blah blah" .

  • Orange man gets da blame for social breakdown... again.... oh wait, this happened on a Obama’s watch and Trump has been telling Pelosi to clean up her districts since 2016. Guess she is too preoccupied eating icecream.


    And yet the Democrats hold 61 of the 80 seats in the California State assembly and 24 seats of the 40 in the California State Senate. So it could be said that this poor treatment of the homeless is taking place under a Democratic watch! Pelosi represents the congressional District in California where these folk are having to shit in the streets in San Francisco.
