  • He has an English and Law degree and he's a custodian? Get a better Job, dude. Then you can pay your bills.
  • Dumbass.

    Dude tried to get $500 thinking no-one would give a shiat. He was wrong. Now playing the planned 'I'm a bit of a retard, look at my hat' excuse.

    His Total Fark addiction did him in.
  • can't afford his prescribed medication
    this is amerca under obamacare
  • Dude did the math:

    50 years old, $250,000 debt, that's $12,500 per year (not counting interest) to pay it off by the time he's 70. Estimating a salary of $30,000 per year as a lead custodian, if he made the payments on time, in good faith, with the intention of being out of debt by the time he can still drive, he has $17,500 annually to live on. And that's barring any unforeseen stuff.

    He saw that wasn't going to happen, and made the call. He'd rather be in prison than deal with that scenario.

    A good lawyer can bill a few hours to cover a student loan.

    Then again, he could be on Wisconsin's BadgerCare which only allows him to make less than $10,800 a year in return for health care coverage for a chronic medical condition like...  Diabetes.
  • Shadi: this is amerca under obamacare


    coming eventually to a hospital near you....


    This bank robber sounds like he gets all his facts from Rush Limbaugh. How do you earn a law degree but be stupid enough to think this is a good plan?

    If they kick him out for being stupid, they don't get the lion's share of the $250,000.

    Not bad really.

    Regular custodians at UW-Milwaukee start at $17/hr. He's gotta be in the $20's at least. That said, drugs like metformin and the like get expensive in a hurry.

    /That does make me sound fat.
  • So remember, folks - dump batsh*t amounts of debt into degree you'll never use, eat poorly and pay huge amounts of money into medical care insurers for how crappy it makes your health, none of whom will likely never actually pay for sh*t. For freedom.™

    And you forgot that there is, most likely, still interest accruing. So yeah, the likelihood of him paying this off are similar to winning the lottery...

    /which is what he'd need to do...

    As someone who supports higher ed, and who even works at UW-Madison...I have to say this sounds like an instance where the university was wrong in admitting him to law school. They probably had a strong sense that there was no way he would be a lawyer (personality quirks), but thought he might be able to pay, and wanted the money. Sad all around.
  • As a UW-Madison,employee, I'm confused. Full-time staff have an excellent health care plan available. Did he opt out of paying into it, or something?
  • Damn, the dude gave away my retirement plans.
  • He sounds... simple. and like he doesn't want to hurt anyone, but he should not have threatened to do so.

    Or he could have signed up for BadgerCare and been waitlisted. A family member was accepted for BadgerCare in 2009 and put on the waitlist. Three plus years later, there are only 4000 people ahead of her on the list so she is moving up!
