Holy Shit. Just checked the house on google street view. The flag is there and the dude is in the front yard. Face blurred of course. How do I post what I'm looking at on Street View?

Note: My parents house is several blocks away so don't jump to any conclusions about where they live. I don't want van der graff stalking me

Mod note: let's not be giving out addresses of personal residences in this forum.

Thanks, but it's pretty useless without a stripper.

Oh well. I don't have the ability to print-screen and photo edit on this computer so you'll have to take my word for it. Unbelievable that he's actually standing in front of the house. He is working on the front yard landscaping which is all dirt in the photo and still is today. His shirt is off and he looks to be middle aged, a bit overweight, and white. Of course might not be owner, could be workman or gardener, but I don't often see hired workers doing landscape work with their shirts off.

...still not sure if OP serious. If serious, not sure why OP considers this "offensive". Confuse. Not sure why thread exists. What is existence, after all? Not sure why we are here at all. Lost in spiralling galaxies. Lost in void. Know hungry. Hungry. Going to get a Snickers. Snickers Satifies.

I think you and I may have different tastes in movies.

Re: Neighbor who flies Palestinian flag. What's up with that?

Hiro,

The conflict between Israel and Palestine is probably the single most contentious issue on the planet. It's something that people in almost every part of the world have an opinion on.

Flying the flag of Palestine is certainly not as provocative and incendiary as flying the Swastika, but it is still pretty provocative. To me it means he supports the Palestinian state. When you do that there are many people who are going to jump to the obvious conclusion that he is against Israel and Jews. Taking any side on the issue is provocative.

What if he has a gripe with a Jewish neighbor and that's why he flies it? Whatever this guy's motives are I'm sure it is fostering more harm than good.

Yep. Every flag is a political statement.

Live and let live.

You do know that Google doesn't ask people to pose when they do the street view, right? I'm sure the guy didn't even know his photo was being taken.

No shit. Hence my statement "Unbelievable he's actually out in front of his house."

Why is it unbelievable? I find it very believable. Highly possible even. In this case, I'd say there was a 100% chance of him being out in front of the house.

This. The Confederate flag should be the most offensive flag one flies in this country. Of course, instead we get this shit:

It's unbelievable that he happened to be in front of his house when the google car drove by. When you street view your house are you standing in the yard?

Not only am I standing in the yard, I'm standing in front of every local diner shouting at idiot tourists.

Mabuse is claiming his spots early for thread of the year, to. That, or is on the verge of a nervous breakdown.
