Default Too Far

Okay, now this idiot has gone too far. If I was there taking video of the 765 and heard this guy yelling and ruining my video of a steam engine, I might have shot him.

Can you imagine trying to capture the sights and sounds of a steam locomotive, a classic piece of machinery you may never see again and hearing, "WooHoo! Foamgasm Foamgasm!!" over the loco?

I think it's funny. Don't forget that the First Amendment gives citizens the inalienable right to make total fools of themselves in public.

The First Amendment has nothing to do with what I said. I'm just talking about common courtesy. There's a difference in exercising your rights and being an a-hole.

Common courtesy and common sense are two things that many people no longer have.

Yeah, it may be easy to laugh at watching it, but being there, I honestly can't say I would've taken the high road. And I do not believe this guy is mentally retarded. There are videos of him driving a car. Which I can only take to mean that he just is that stupid and inconsiderate.

What are you people, the fun police? No one around him seems annoyed.

If I were there and taking video I probably would have moved somewhere else, or tried to say "hush," but in the end who frankly cares? Let the guy have his fun.

You don't know he's going to erupt like that. How could you know ahead of time?

Wasn't there - can't say - but I have a weird sense that the was doing that way, way before the camera went on.

That being said, you're right. I don't know for sure.

From what I understand the kid has Asperger's and Autism so while I do think the videos are hilarious and give railfans a bad name... I don't know what else to say. There are plenty of people who can drive a car with these conditions. BTW the word "retard or retarded" is horrible, My folks run an Adult Foster Care home and while they are now pushing 70 they still have 4 of the same women they have cared for and loved since I was 5 years old, I am now 34. These women are in their 50's and 60's with the mentality of 3 year olds, they are as much of my family as my 2 Brothers and they have an amazing capacity to love. Those terms really put it all in such a horrible light, they are Humans and deserve respect.

Beyond all that I know I have even had my own spontaneous moments of foamtasm before and I think we all have.

I haven't heard anything about Asperger's. I do know that the Andross51 kid does which is why I haven't said anything about him.

As for "retard and retarded" I didn't say that in a way to make fun of him. Actually I never made fun of him here. Complain about? Yeah. The word "retarded" is still a technical term and is only negative if you make it that way.

And that doesn't dismiss the fact that he's an attention whore and he knows it. Time to quit using autism as an excuse for his attention whoring ways.

He's a video attention whore just like that idiot down in Florida.

As anyone who knows me knows I don't use the word "foamer," It's an inane term that came along decades after I first pointed a camera at a train.

As to the substance of your question, I simply don't believe in calling out other human beings to try and pacify one's own issues or anger.

Having dealt with the developmentally disabled my whole life I can tell you that retarded is always a bad term when it come to someone's mental capacity. As for him being an attention whore, you have to remember that people like that deal with life differently from how a "normal" individual deals with them. Anyway the way I see it no one looks pissed and he isn't hurting anyone. Same for the guy in Florida although I think most of his stuff is intended to be tongue-in-cheek anyway.

My wife has a invisible disability, you ought to see the awful looks we get at the store using the scooters and handicapped spots, that stuff has mellowed me out and I would rather give someone the benefit of the doubt anymore.

Just to add, we all take pictures of trains for fun. That in and of itself is messed up oh and to rails each and every one of us is a foamer. There is no differing degrees of railfan to them. So, we all suck.
