    Even 911 Can Wait

    With winter time just around the corner, maybe we can reflect on this guy and learn how to stop and smell the roses if we get caught in a similar situation. This guy seems fully aware that life is just too short...

    See what happens when you get out of the rat-race for a while? Talk about a kicked back attitude.

    He's from that dying out generation that are self reliant, strong and stable. They really are an inspiration. What a great attitude!
    You know, if I had a good book, my dog and wasn't too cold...3 days alone doesn't sound so bad!
    ...did you see his dog stick it's head out of the police van towards the end? That made me laugh.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    And this is the generation some people are calling the "entitled" generation... Probably a vet, getting S.S., getting medicare, probably not medicaid though, he still owns a vehicle.
    It could be worse.
