Imponderable #53: Port Richey Florida

6 Jul

July 6, 2012

What more can I add? The man has his priorities.

I’ve never been a beer drinker. If I want bad tasting foam then I’ll know there is something wrong with me.  Me? I’m a Pepsi kind of guy, like my role model George Costanza.

But I totally get that there are some people, like the afore-mentioned Mr. Whittle, who lead very beer-intensive lifestyles. I’ve covered the link between beer and crime before. For example, there was Imponderable #11, in which a man fleeing from the police  was caught because he would not stop drinking beer as he ran. In fact, pretty much any time there is a lot of beer flowing you can expect guys to be doing something stupid.

Of course, this is a little different. Mr. Whittle robbed the bank before he drank his beer.

Aren’t you supposed to get drunk, decide that robbing a bank is a good idea, then have the robbery foiled because you spent thirty minutes trying to push open a pull door until the bank closed? Isn’t that the way these things work?

I really want to know what this apparently sober man was thinking.

So what was he thinking?

The question is Imponderable.

Ya know, this reminds me of a movie I haven’t seen in ages.

    I’d love to know how far the bank is from the bar and how he conducted the robbery. I’m envisioning that the bank is across the street. The bartender poured the beer and asked for payment. The guy said, “I’ll be right back.” and went to get the money sans ATM card.

      When you put it that way it sounds so logical. Under those circumstances why would he possibly not choose to rob the bank?

        Oh No! I’m seeing logic in imponderable behavior–does that mean i’m becoming one of them?

    Ah, the unaccountable actions by us unaccountable humans. Sometimes fascinating, sometimes weird, sometimes strange, and always definitely fun in an – okay that was really interesting sort of way thing!

      I like that analysis. It is nearly Zen.
