If somebody standing there had the time to pull out a camera, turn it on, and take 5 pictures of this guy struggling against the wave to save his dog, THEN WHY COULDN'T THE PHOTOGRAPHER JUMP IN AND HELP THE POOR OLD MAN GET TO SHORE FASTER! Ladies and gentleman: our world.

A friend's dog jumped into the pool next to me when I was swimming at his house. The dog was not very good at swimming and clawed at me quite violently until I pulled it out of the water.

If a dog is struggling for its life and approached by a stranger there is a good chance it will lash out. Perhaps people simply wanted to avoid getting mauled.

That's why you grab the man, not the dog.

The man seems to be handling himself just fine. At my size, I'd be more likely to get in the way.

Numerous reasons;

1. He cannot swim.

2. Help is already on its way.

3. These photos may bring the necessary sympathy to their cause and help others to find the heart to help them.

1. In the pictures, it appears as though the old man is standing on solid ground and just wading through the water.

2. Help may be "on the way", but that old man and dog need help NOW.

3. Based on some limited research which I've just done over Slovenia, its not some third world country that needs sympathy from other countries.

Got anymore "reasons"?

Really.....I prove you wrong with logical reasoning, and all I get is some vulgar backlash that shows you to be nothing but the mental equivalent of an 8 year old who found their parent's computer?

Does beating an 8 year old in a logical argument make you feel superior?
Just asking.

No, it doesn't, but that doesn't mean that I'm not going to try to correct the 8 year old when he's wrong.

Are you his mother/father?

No, I'm just a person who doesn't want to see a world full of ignorant people.

So you go about doing this by correcting an 8 year old, I can assure you there are many other, more effective ways to solve ignorance on a world scale.

First of all, I didn't call him an 8 year old, I said that he was the mental equivalent of an eight year old. Second, as one person, correcting others seems to be the only effective way to educate ignorant people.

If what you say is true, that one person cannot make a difference, then how has any change ever come about in history?

I'm not saying that one person can't make a difference. I'm saying that because of the current position which I'm in, I can't make a difference.

I'm a twenty year-old, still living with my parents because I have to take care of them. I'm attending classes at a local community college, and my band is pretty much the only good thing in my life.

Music can be an excellent outlet for "awakening" people so long as your music has a meaning. Not necessarily straight forward and blunt. If you devote yourself to music, you may not be rich and famous but you can certainly "educate" more people than by correcting degenerates on funnyjunk.

I'm in a garage band......we play in bars filled with drunk veterans, and we don't really write our own music, mainly, we cover other bands' music.

I cant just "change it" It would take some kind of a miracle to get a record deal or even a manager that could get good gigs for us. Not that I'm not trying, but there's almost nothing I can do except wait and pray.

There's always a way to me more proactive than you already are. Also, pray and wait harder.
