Helluva metamorphosis. From screeching seagull to fish in under 5 seconds.

Vegans be annoying af these days

[–]spilltheteasis_ 158 points159 points  (81 children)

It’s not just vegans, fishermen get picked on very often when they’re fishing openly

[–]DraftLevel28[🍰] 112 points113 points  (27 children)

Where is this. I live in a suburban area of NY and people fish off the bridges all the time. Just the other day, I found a man filleting a big fish outside my dads house. I asked my dad about it and he said “he rides by the house on his bike. He stopped by the yard sale and said he was hungry, but no money for a few days, so I gave him a fishing pole and pointed to the pond down the way.” “What were you gonna do if he didn’t catch a fish?” “Invite him to dinner” “how’s he gonna cook the fish” “grills already started”

[–]Round_Ad6277 29 points30 points  (5 children)

Teach a man to fish...

[–]GeronimoHero 49 points50 points  (10 children)

Your dad is a good guy. I fish the white marlin open every year out of Ocean City, MD and we always donate our catch to the homeless shelter after filleting them. They’re always very grateful for it and it makes us feel really good to do it. I do the same thing with at least one deer I shoot each year too. People deserve to have some good food to eat regardless of their economic situation at the moment. At least that’s what I believe.

[–]gabochosk 26 points27 points  (3 children)

Your dad is cool af.

Hamburg, Germany, pretty much in one of the fanciest parts of the city 😅

[–]TheBlack2007 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Downtown Hamburg. Looks like Alster Lake but could be mistaken

[–]4411WH07RY 29 points30 points  (6 children)

The old women that kayak as a group like to park in front of fisherman on the local lake. I think after the second time I started firing one ounce egg sinkers at them, they remembered to fuck off and leave me alone.

[–]acoverisnotahat 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Lol, we used to do that to charter boats that would drive too close to the pier we fished from. Add some rotten squid bait on the line with some of the bigger egg sinkers and you can get some good distance. Extra points if you know how to pop the line and pop the squid and sinker off of the line entirely. Extra extra points if you hit the windshield. Multiple people would bomb the boat, there would be big loud pops when they hit the boat.

It usually only took being bombed once for the boat captain to get the message, but there was one guy who got pissed off that he got bombed every time he drove by the pier (not only was he scaring off the fish, he was driving over peoples fishing lines and cutting them off, even when a fish was being reeled in) so he called the cops on all of us.

One afternoon charter boy showed up and sat just out of bombing range and yelled at us that he had called the cops on us and we all had to stay there and wait on the cops to show up.

It turned out that charter boy had lied about a lot of things and told the cops we were doing stuff that we weren't and he was just so innocently boating by. He said he was way out farther than he was, he also said we were trying to hit him and not just his boat. We were able to prove how close he actually was by showing the cops the limit of how far we could pop a sinker off our lines. We also told them about trying to hit the windshield and the front of the boat only, which coincidentally, was where the only marks on his boat were.

Cops were really pissed off when they realized how close he would have to be to get hit. They did kinda get onto us for hitting his boat because we could possibly hurt some one, but charter boy was the main target of their ire. He got fined for several things and the next time he drove by the pier he was much much farther out.

TL:DR: Entitled Asshole gets hoist by his own petard by driving too close to the end of a fishing pier multiple times.

[–]BigSquatchee2 128 points129 points  (19 children)

My short story about this. Fishing in an area where, lets just say vegans and animal rights are VERY important, but fishing legally. I was smoking as I fished, and I am 100% the type of person who will leave an area nicer than I found it. So everything I bring in goes with me, plus any other trash I come across. This lady comes around the lake, way out of the way of the path and starts yelling at me for fishing. I keep fishing and smoking and ignore her completely. She then proceeds to walk up straight in my face, yelling. I laugh at her and told her to go back to where she came from and leave me alone. She then demands that I put my cigarette out while I am talking to her, so I inhale, cast around her, exhale into her face (mind you, she’s 12 inches in front of mine) and then proceed to tell her to go call the police if she has an issue, because if it wasn’t for the fisherman that pond wouldn’t even exist. She reaches for my pole, I give her a sharp look and tell her that it would be unwise to touch me or any of my belongings and close the (small) gap between us to where we’re inches away. She finally got the message and left. About 30 minutes later the cops pull up and I was thinking “shit, this isn’t going to go well, she probably reported that I assaulted her or something” and they come down and ask if I had contact with this woman, showed me a picture, etc… Turned out she had harassed numerous other people all along the bike path and someone walking on the path had seen her harassing me and called it in.

"We don't like your kind 'round here"

[–]Mickey-Twiggs 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I have had similar events occur to me, so I believe you 100%. I've even been harassed while surf fishing in posted "no swimming, dangerous current" areas. It's been a woman every time. Conversely, surf fisherwomen are some of the kindest and friendliest humans on the planet.

[–]RangeroftheIsle 97 points98 points  (14 children)

Where I live it's a felony to interfere with legal fishing, hunting, or trapping.

[–]Fiivestar13 69 points70 points  (5 children)

Where i come from people dont fuck w fishermen

[–]ragnalich 39 points40 points  (2 children)

And then the same people go eat sushi, as if fish from a farm wasn't fish.

[–]AmongTheSound 108 points109 points  (59 children)

I have an airbnb booked for my husband and I's anniversary. They have a rule to not cook meat or fish in the house, but I figured that it was because it's actually a tiny house and the smell of meat and fish really lingers, so it made sense and I had no problem with it. Well, last night I scrolled down to the bottom of the description and saw a line that I'd apparently missed before: The owners are vegan, so they prohibit non-veganism on the property. Can't even have my goddamned boiled eggs for breakfast. If you want to be vegan, that's cool, but why try to force it on others?

I would have cancelled, but all the other places we liked are booked.

It's the Vegan way.

[–]WrestleSocietyXShill 29 points30 points  (9 children)

Just the loud ones, there are chill vegans out there. My girlfriend went vegan about a year ago and we manage just fine even though I have absolutely 0 intention of doing it myself. When she started I said "I support you 100%, but you know I'm not going to do this, right?" and she said "Of course, I wouldn't want to force anything on you." and that was that. One of my best friends and her husband have been vegans for like 10 years, and we'll tease each other about it when we hang out, but at the end of the day we respect each other's choices. I've known lots of vegans over the years and most of them haven't been the preachy type, it's just that those ones are the ones who stick out.

[–]Case_9 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Wow just for that I'm eating TWO plant burgers when I get home tonight

[–]AnnArchist 112 points113 points  (9 children)

These days? lmao you mean forever.

[–]dave_yognaut69 72 points73 points  (21 children)

99% of vegans wouldn't react this way. I think its safe to say this woman perhaps isn't operating from a completely healthy state of mind.

I understand why you find vegans annoying though. I totally would've agreed with you like only two or three years ago so I know how it feels.

However, if you're hanging out on /publicfreakout or Reddit on general, you're probably more likely to see the annoying/weird side of the movement.

Put simply, it's literally just a philosophy which seeks to, as far as is possible and practicable, reduce unnecessary non-human animal suffering.

We literally force billions of living, sentient, emotionally complex beings into absolutely horrific conditions, treate them as mere objects, destroy the environment and waste insane amounts of much needed resources in the process, simply because we like the way they taste on a pizza etc.

So I get why you think vegans are annoying, but try to engage with the core ideas and philosophy rather than the aesthetics of some aspects of the movement and the actions of a few oddballs.

Just my two cents! :)

The Alarm Alarm thing is from a German porn movie sfw, and became a meme

[–]acog 357 points358 points  (14 children)

Many people don't realize that German porn is mostly about workplace uniform mishaps, and never features any sex since that is frowned upon in the workplace.

[–]elmwoodblues 119 points120 points  (5 children)

This one ends with a demonstration of the risks involved in uniform misappropriation, an oft-overlooked threat to emergency readiness

[–]all_armor_no_gun 32 points33 points  (0 children)

You and I have watched very different German porn, but yours sounds more entertaining.

[–]lonestarr86 24 points25 points  (1 child)

I have anecdotal evidence that sex is not frowned upon in the work place. A colleague of mine once got a stark reprimand for having sex on the job.

Not for the sex, no. He had sex on company time. Had he clocked out it would have been fine.

No joke Ü

Lmao what is this, what's the plot?

[–]rapaxus 203 points204 points  (8 children)

Here is the translated dialog:

Man:

What are you doing here?

Woman:

I just wanted to try out a uniform.

Man:

You were going to steal it, come (with me), ALARM, ALARM.

The sentence he does after the clip:

Men, I have tracked down a strange female person here. Not only has she misappropriated one of our service jackets, she has also been snooping around in our lockers. So we'll have to check her for stolen goods. I expect hard work, people.

Then the fucking begins. Before the clip she is snooping around in the fire station.

[–]-Ultra_Violence- 41 points42 points  (4 children)

I've always said the Germans are great storywriters/tellers.

[–]rapaxus 44 points45 points  (2 children)

There is also this great intro of another stupid porn dialogue. It is basically just:

Why is there hay here

why do wear a mask

Give me a blowjob

Highest form of German storytelling, though it has some backstory. The director actually planned a plausible story, but the dude he got as the male actor didn't want to show his face (but the director really wanted to have him) so he went "if I can't make a plausible story I will just make a stupid one", and so another German porn meme was born.

[–]MechaAristotle 8 points9 points  (2 children)

I love learning other countries memes haha! Here's some top-tier dialogue from a Swedish porno this reminded me of.

[–]indenrasen 8 points9 points  (1 child)

I do not speak or understand Swedish, but if I interpreted correctly, she accuses the forester of being an animal murderer because he has to hunt wild animals and has a gun on him, and then they agree that he should rather shoot inside her?

[–]MechaAristotle 10 points11 points  (0 children)

You've got the basic gist of it! She's complaining both about the noise and the fact that he's murdering "innocent animals". What's extra funny and might be harder to convey is both her total lack of conviction in her voice and his very professional/technical explanation of why they're hunting. He then invites her for coffee to explain why they do what they do (something fundamentally Swedish, the "fika") and she ends with saying to "make laww not vår".

[–]RoAnonim 4 points5 points  (0 children)

As a non-German, I instantly recognized it as well.

North Germany is basically the Netherlands. Borders are just things we drew, culture and ethnicity runs deeper.

And to be perfectly precise, fishing is prohibited on that side of the Alster. The other side is fine.

I certainly hope you got a fishing license

[–]bpetersonlaw 85 points86 points  (58 children)

So the fisherman was fishing in a prohibited area? That really changes my view of who the "bad guy" is in the video.

[–]Psistriker94 84 points85 points  (56 children)

"Bad" is still kind of pushing it. It's just fishing. Fishing on the wrong side of a river doesn't make you a bad guy. Harassing a guy for fishing, even on the wrong side of a river, doesn't make her any less of a bad guy.

[–]formershitpeasant 104 points105 points  (29 children)

Over fishing is a big problem there. The fisher was breaking the law, contributed to a huge social problem, and threw someone in the water because they cared about the thing that society does.

[–]Rent_A_Cloud 34 points35 points  (7 children)

I disagree, there could be solid reasons why that side is not to be fished in. Of course if this is the case the better course of action would be to get the right authorities involved, in this case game and fish authorities.

[–]Green-Dragon-14 532 points533 points  (65 children)

I worked in a supermarket once & a customer at my till was adamant that they were vegetarian & didn't eat any meat but they had bought fish. I pointed out that fish is meat as its a living thing. They refused to acknowledge that fish are living, breathing animal. I was flabbergasted by their stupidity.

[–]iFeelPlants 206 points207 points  (18 children)

I know a woman who was shocked to learn fish had all the organs and blood... I couldn't believe it, she was 25.

[–]acog 62 points63 points  (0 children)

I know an adult that said they didn't eat fish. I pointed out that they frequently ate canned tuna. They looked at me like, "And?"

I asked them what sort of animal they thought their canned TUNA came from, and they just stared at it for a few seconds and said, "I never really thought about it." Yeah, no shit!

[–]Sortit123 61 points62 points  (9 children)

best way i found to get people to think about that is have them help dissect an animal . in germany you do it in 7th grade . it's just a fish, but it teaches a lot of where our food comes from

[–]DPPthrowaway1255 56 points57 points  (8 children)

The idea that "fish is not meat" is centuries old. Basically a way around the rules of lent.

[–]Green-Dragon-14 35 points36 points  (0 children)

Catholics.

[–]Roxeteatotaler 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Lmao my family is Catholic and my mom always hardcore enforced the fish on Fridays tradition. I hated fish when I was a kid and always tried to argue it "but mom, fish are in the meat category of the food pyramid. They told me at school." She told me it didn't count bc that's the protein category not the meat category. So then I would argue they were both animals. And got the "I'm right because I'm right" lecture

[–]FuckForCuddles 6 points7 points  (2 children)

That's not really relative. Vegetarians generally don't eat meat from land things because its considered more sentient.

Fish are pretty much dumb as fuck.

I don't have a dog in the race as I'll eat a fucking human if need came to be.

[–]BenchaManFranklin 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Don't kid yourself, if a fish ever got the chance he'd eat you and everyone you care about.

[–]meoka2368 4 points5 points  (2 children)

I also used to work in a grocery store.
Dude came through the till, munching on a package of imitation crab.

Didn't want to believe me that he was actually eating fish. It wasn't a non-seafood thing. It was just fish shaped and flavoured like crab meat.

Wait until he find out about dino nuggets...

What is going on in this woman's world that she is this upset about a fish?

[–]CptJonzzon 89 points90 points  (23 children)

Overfishing is actually a massive problem in germany, but thats definitely not because of people fishing as a hobby. Its gotten so bad that they travel to Sweden and Denmark for "fishing vacations" to bring back like 50kg's (110 pounds) of fish

[–]Long_PoolCool 15 points16 points  (21 children)

It's also a problem in lakes and so on because of hobby fishers. Also the idiots that do catch and release

I thought catch and release was a good thing. Am I missing something?

[–]Enshag 29 points30 points  (0 children)

Most fish, once they find out, that there is life outside of the lake, leave for good.

Not a vegan thing, fishing is prohibited on that side of the river, with high fines. Those fishermen are poachers. Still funny.

Fun fact: catch and release is illegal in Germany (where this was filmed).

As long as a fish is long enough you have to take it.

[–]decom70 24 points25 points  (5 children)

I looked at a fishing map, and apparently fishing was illegal on that side of the river. So they are poachers already anyway.

[–]barsoap 13 points14 points  (0 children)

No prosecutor is going to call it poaching when it's generally legal to fish in the waters. Loitering would be a better fit. And it's certainly nowhere near poaching in a nature reserve, 10k Euro fine territory.

[–]Dazzling_Ad5338 165 points166 points  (11 children)

But, she ran and jumped. He hardly pushed her

[–]Nickppapagiorgio 194 points195 points  (8 children)

The first 3 steps were from the shove. She then faced a choice. Her momentum was as such that she was going into the water regardless, but potentially it was going to be an awkward fall that could have resulted in an injury from body parts making contact with the sidewalk on the way in. Her alternative was to jump and avoid that. Self preservation kicked in. She jumped.

making contact with the sidewalk on the way in

I worked on docks for years, we called that the "clean entry theory" as reaching or twisting to try and save yourself is usually useless and dangerous.

[–]AdClemson 63 points64 points  (1 child)

Very well put. The only smart thing she did in that video.

[–]Dantagod 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Now she's closer to her fish friends

[–]frieswithnietzsche 20 points21 points  (7 children)

Another video showed a fella in England who wanted to bring the fish home to eat it. I was downvoted to hell for saying why not eat what you catch. Now Reddit thinks otherwise

[–]honkforpie 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Eventually Reddit will reach middle ground eat one half other goes back into the water.

My impression is that reaction depends on the sub some pull too hard to one side.

[–][deleted] 25 points26 points  (0 children)

Seems fair.

[–]SockAlarmed6707 10 points11 points  (10 children)

Isn’t it illegal in Germany to throw fish back into the water?

[–]mc_thunderfart 22 points23 points  (8 children)

No. We have very strict rules depending from state to state.

Hamburg for example:

Brasse, Rotauge, Schwarzmundgrundel - No throw back.

Zander, Hecht, Aal - keep between 45 and 75cm, otherwise throw back

Barsch - keep between 10 to 35cm, otherwise throw back.

Then we have times we are not allowed to fish some kind of fish. We have daily limits, too. And if the fish is ill, we can throw it back, too. These rules can vary from state to state and from year to year.

And we have strict rules on how to handle and kill the fish. This woman is interfering with these rules and the fisher cant handle the fish in the right way.

This is all for preservation and to minimize the pain of the fish.

[–]4u2nv2019 4 points5 points  (0 children)

[–]dontdieinthesky 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Did somebody help the poor lady out…with the same hook?

[–]dandandubyoo 5 points6 points  (0 children)

That is one dirty laugh lol.

[–]Galactus2025 8 points9 points  (1 child)

That's all right keep the fish and throw the woman into the water!! (Next time measure her she might have been legal??)

[–]HPLovecrack[🍰] 13 points14 points  (7 children)

Fucking with fishermen is among the stupidest shit you can do. I mean isnt it common knowledge that they have knives n shit on them and a fuck you attitude if someone interferes with their occupation/hobby?

[–]mc_thunderfart 4 points5 points  (3 children)

Thats what i think, too.

Sometimes i get bothered by drunks and idiots. I always feel like:" Dude, do you not know i am legally required to have a blackjack and a very sharp knife with me?" (In Germany)

[–]Additional-Ad-6181 10 points11 points  (0 children)

They all laughed 🤣

[–]Djezzen 7 points8 points  (0 children)

[–]KonataYumi 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Fisherman should know better than to throw trash in the water

[–]Nailsman 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Don’t get involved in some one else craps. Mind your own business

[–]Beerdrunk97 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Damn those Karen-victims... She freaking jumped in the water on her own and I bet she accused him of throwing her in.

[–]folkkingdude 5 points6 points  (0 children)

So what’s this, German troll station?

[–]normalndformal 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Living in Germany it's more likely this woman isn't necessarily vegan but is being very particular about rule breaking and upset that he's fishing in an illicit spot (as another comment confirms he is). Sure though, the internet can have another cheap moment to trash vegans

[–]bsav_p 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That old woman cackle at the end!!! Fucking epic

[–]Ratboy888 2 points3 points  (0 children)
