Using Tigers as Props for Art and Charity.



Arnd Drossel built this giant steel cage and is rolling it 220 miles through Germany to raise money for psychiatric patients (how fitting). On his way, he rolled the ball into this tiger safari park as a publicity stunt. http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/news/article-23393570-details/Claw%27s+encounter%3A+Here%27s+another+fine+mesh+you%27ve+got+me+into/article.do via Eduyayo

How fitting that a stunt designed to promote psychiatry and support for its patients is staged in Germany - the very place psychiatry helped kill millions of people in WWII with its euthenasia programs and mass murders.

I would actually love to do that. They should have giant Hamster balls you can use to stroll/walk through safari's with. of course you could still get clawed, bitten if you get too close to one side with an opening. Hmm...

I spent about 1minute searching for links with words euthanasia and World War II. I came up with "life unworthy of living" A Nazi German phrase used to describe mentally challenged, alcoholoics, people with birth defects, etc. It was the justification of mass killings just prior to World War II. One of the people who coined the phrase was Karl Binding. A psychiatrist. You can google or go to wikipedia and check it out...

So, what's your point Matt? Shouldn't germans raise money for psychiatric patients because they had a fascist regime about 60 years ago?
I see... it's kind of obvious that the guy in this rolling cake thing took part in the murders...

What im interested to know is where does the money really go?

It says "to raise money for psychiatric patients" but im pretty sure they wont really give the money to the patients directly ( They could give them fake bills and it would not make any difference ).

So is the money for:

Housing
Medicaments
Brain surgery
?

Rolling cake? lol

Matt sounds like he's been surfing the Scientology web.

The comment "They could give them fake bills and it would not make any difference" shows an overwhelming lack of compassion or understanding. Let's hope the money goes to help get rid of such ignorance about mental health issues.
