Homeless Man Free Falls Off Crane, Sticks Landing in Los Angeles, California

Homeless Man Free Falls Off Crane, Sticks Landing in Los Angeles, California

At 11295 exposition Blvd. in Los Angeles CA 90064 on 5/2/19 at 12:00 PM, a homeless dude decided to climb crane at construction site – for whatever reason jumps off with all the grace of a professional high diver. His form could use some work but he absolutely stuck landing.

Thanks for the footage Mr.E, he is fortunate to have died from such height. The vagabond landing on his back forecloses his life. Fortunately for him because, the medical bill would have ended up killing him. Win-Win. Perhaps, he saw an half eaten grinder and took one small leap to get it and one giant back flop for mankind.

Life expectancy for Los Angeles’ homeless population is 48. (California’s, in morbid contrast, is 80.) This should seriously disturb the residents of Los Angeles, which for years has faced a severe homelessness crisis. According to a recent USC study on homelessness, “between 2010 and 2017, the number of homeless people across Los Angeles County went from 38,700 to over 55,000 — an increase of 42%.” It’s not hard to figure out why, either: a combination of soaring rents, stagnant wages (if you’re lucky enough to have a job), and personal debt makes it nearly impossible to live a financially stable life, nonetheless in one of the most expensive cities in the country.

          1. OOPS!

            Bob Dylan’s still around…

            …okay, I searched this time 🙂

            I always thought the song “End of the Line,” would be a good song to burn one with Jesus.

          2. @pigsonthewing

            Lol, end of the line would be, lol. I Loved The Travelling Wilburys . So Yea,, it,s to bad only one remains as they came-out with great tunes one after the other eh bro?? 🙂

      1. @OG Zerp

        Holy-Fuck Dude,,, this also a very good tune this is and works well with that flying-Nun Lunatic as well, lol. 😉 Those College days must’ve been times to remember eh bro. Lotsa Pussy, blunts, & beer, fuck studying. 😉

        I Have never been to University, or College, but we made sure our kids did, if they chose to. My last, & Youngest Boy out of 4 Boys Has Just Finished, and graduates in June. And that’s it for us, and the reason why we sold our Big House Last Year to downsize. 🙂

            Doc knows his Kerouac. Who said this doc, another great quote by a great author/philosopher

            “We had all the momentum; we were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave… So now, less than five years later, you can go up on a steep hill in Las Vegas and look West, and with the right kind of eyes you can almost see the high water mark — that place where the wave finally broke, and rolled back.”

      1. Not bad Doc…

        When people are tired of playing the fool, we can splice this video with Judas Priest’s, “Some Heads Are Gonna Roll.”

        btw: Those roads look pretty rough, but we can build a bomb, that’s for sure!

        1. Do you refer to the prioritisation of funds and resources to a military end rather than providing necessary things for daily modern life, such as infrastructure?

          The movie version of 1984 did a great job of highlighting the disparity between what the military have and what the masses get. The scene where the modern attack helicopter busts the couple in their bedroom for their “sex crime” is what I found to do that best.

          1. Not at all Doc…

            Our infrastructure here in the United States is falling apart, due to a warfare economy. We have overweaponized our military, to where people are sleeping on the streets, dying, due to a privatized healthcare system, unaffordable college, a shitty living wage, a privatized banking system and a non industrialized economy, due to NAFTA, CAFTA etc.

            I’m not interested in religious wars. I’m interested in a government, who responds to the people that they were sworn to serve.

            However and unfortunately, our corporate media and politicians, have labeled us as Lefties or Righties when in fact, both parties are corporate owned, and have no positive effect on society whatsoever.

            …God, did I put that mildly

            People in this country as well as others, have become so oppressed by the lies of our elected officials and corporate media, they lack the common sense, wisdom and integrity to hold these scumbag’s feet to the fire.

            …or better yet, discontinue voting for them and in many cases, bring many up for war crimes.

            We can start with 911…

            I may be different from others. I don’t look at other people as my enemies. However and just like handling a drug addict…
            If you’re not equipped with empowering yourself against the drug addict, the drug addict will eventually OWN YOU!

            Just like our politicians today. Many people think they have no choice, and continue to give them drugs, money, a place to live etc.

            Did you see how I combined the two analogies?

            Neat huh! 🙂

          2. Yes Pigs that’s what I thought you were getting at with your original comment. Nice little elucidation of the two themes as well :o)
            The points you raise aren’t lost on me not being a US citizen. I think those things are affecting many Western nations these days…possibly with the exception of your expensive healthcare system. What we need to eradicate from our minds immediately, is the concept that governments give a fuck about the masses. They don’t, except maybe when it’s time to vote for the arsewipes.

            On a slightly different tangent that I use to understand the crazy world, there’s a very interesting video by VSauce that concerns the Zipf Law & other related principles. Basically there’s an inevitable mathematical probability that…wealth will concentrate into very few hands, although I can’t recall if he made that connection in the video, to me it explains more than enough.

            Do me a favour, and watch this video in its entirety and give me your opinion, I’d really love to know what you think.

  1. Yes , he was homeless at this side of the galaxy but on the other side of his new abode , he owns vast acres ,but he hasn’t got no plans with no time to spare because its either the Gods asking vague questions or the demons wanting him to take them flirting where the demonesses roam half naked giving catcalls to the newbs and he seems fed up.

      1. In the outer reaches of another distant world ; I suppose
        courting demonesses will help him become a good wingman and that might make Demons feel lucky ; after all ;though he failed the earthlings but failing demons would be hard for him cause he’s a demon himself now .

  2. LMAO what a stupid fucking asshole, he was worthless anyways, so who the fuck cares about him? let’s bee honest… yelling from the crowd not enough, not even a single rescue worker trying to negotiate with him… nobody wanted that fucker alive, rest in pieces motherfucker

  3. First the dumpster, then the liquor store, a visit to the priest, a blackout, a quick piss behind a tree, followed by a monumental climb up a crane for a CRANEial dismount.

    …I think he’s spreading himself out too thin, don’t you think?

  4. Do me a favour, and watch this video in its entirety and give me your opinion, I’d really love to know what you think.

    That was interesting @doc-undy

    World’s wealth is approximately 80/20
    Our expensive healthcare is 80/20

    I also wonder if politicians use less longer words/more popular words, to keep their audience lethargic, or non attentive?

    It’s often been said, that people are unaware of the power of exponential growth.

    Pretty deep shit, nevertheless. I guess I’ll have to let it sink in for awhile.

    What’s your take/opinion on this?

    1. It’s quite deep Pigs aside from that 20/80 ratio. I’m sure that politicians have an instinct for human psychology. So they probably use that 20/80 principle somewhere in their shenanigans. Hitler used many psychological methods in his speeches to the masses to increase his persuasiveness. The old 1 2..3 delivery of points…with the emphasis on that final 3rd point comes to mind. He didn’t consider the German people as individuals who were rational and could think for themselves, instead he conceptulised them as a group.

      “…The receptivity of the great masses is very limited, their intelligence is small, but their power of forgetting is enormous. In consequence of these facts, all effective propaganda must be limited to a very few points and must harp on these in slogans until the last member of the public understands what you want him to understand by your slogan. As soon as you sacrifice this slogan and try to be many-sided, the effect will piddle away, for the crowd can neither digest nor retain the material offered.”
      Hitler

      My take of all things Zipfian, is that they’re embedded into the larger area of chaos theory. I have a special interest in chaos, fractals and the Mandelbrot set, etc ~ my profile pic and background are my artistic interpretations of the fractal art that I also create on the computer. Power laws (exponential progressions) have nonlinear harmonics running through them that occur at increasing frequencies. Just as fractal geometry has self-similarity at greater levels of magnitude. What that all means to me, is that our seemingly random human mind and behaviour is actually constrained within some universal mathematical probability and is thus not as ransom as we imagine. Now add everything in the known universe to that, and then nothing is random. Does this give evidence of God? I’m sure Dre & Svarge will swear that it does.

      The other universal mathematical law that is responsible for the shape of everything from the largest objects in the universe (Galaxies), right down to things on the atomic level (DNA). The Fibonacci series of Phi 1.618 that gives rise to the Golden Mean. It can be seen in virtually everything from the shape of animals, to the shape of their bodily structures, to the shape of faces etc etc. The universe doesn’t seem so big and random and chaotic all of a sudden.

  5. In all my years passively observing carnage on this site, I’d never thought it would strike so close to home. I can see this Crane from my bedroom window and watched the construction since I moved into the neighborhood a few months ago. Hot damn. There is a bum encampment just underneath the freeway overpass down the street and I’ve always had some nasty feeling about them being there and just wandered when someone got murdered or died. Unfortunately I was at work when this happened, but cops must’ve been quick to sweep this under the rug and allowed businesses to continue as usual. I don’t watch the news at all so I didn’t even know this happened! This is something special considering I just recently found out my hindu roommate was low key suicidal and wrote in her diary she had ambitions of murdering herself via high rise or pills. Not really related. But this is crazy to me that all in the same week of finding this out, someone off’d themselves so close to home. Yet this bitch doesn’t have the balls to go through with it. She just moved out too on the same day this happened. What a trip.

  6. If they can’t afford to live in “the most expensive city in the country,” then fuck off somewhere else, dumb shits. These homeless fucks probably wouldn’t be homeless in places like buttfuck Ohio, Wisconsin, Idaho, or some other redneck state.

    I live in San Francisco because I can afford it. Otherwise, I wouldn’t be here!
