    Indian 'anti-natalist' Raphael Samuel taking legal action against his own parents for


    Raphael Samuel believes life is so full of misery that humans should stop procreating

    An Indian man is suing his parents for giving birth to him.

    Key points:
    • Mr Samuel believes he should be paid to live because it was not his choice to be born
    • His mother said she "would not have had" Mr Samuel — had she have met him before he was born
    • He identifies as an "anti-natalist", a philosophy that assigns a negative value to birth


    Twenty-seven-year-old Raphael Samuel says he plans to take legal action against his parents because they brought him into the world without his consent.
    His unusual move has prompted both befuddlement and debate on Indian social media platforms.

    The Mumbai businessman identifies as an anti-natalist; one who assigns a negative value to birth and believes that life is so full of misery that humans should stop procreating.
    Mr Samuel garnered overnight fame in India after he outlined his philosophical stance in a series of YouTube videos in which he is disguised with sunglasses and a large, ill-fitting fake beard.

    "I want everyone in India and the world to realise one thing — that they are born without their consent," he said.

    "I want them to understand that they do not owe their parents anything.

    "If we are born without our consent, we should be maintained for our life. We should be paid by our parents to live."

    Mr Samuel's parents are both lawyers, and he says he has a good relationship with them.
    "My father is still getting over the idea, but my mother wishes that she had met me before I was born, and she would not have had me," he said. Yep

    It's an odd world...!

    Indian man to sue his parents for giving birth to him ‘without his consent’, wants to be paid for his life

    A 27-year-old Indian man is going viral after he announced an intent to sue his parents, claiming he didn’t give his explicit consent to bring him into the world.

    Raphael Samuel, donning a fake beard and sunglasses, said in a YouTube video posted on Tuesday that he is suing his parents because he was conceived without his consent and therefore his parents should pay for his life.

    We're reaching new levels of crazy, though to be fair I suppose rights are rights and the degenerates probably did fail to consult him. Should get tons of support.

    Hawaii considers raising legal smoking age to 100

    https://news.sky.com/story/hawaii-co...s-old-11628456

    They may have got that idea from the early abortion debates, when someone suggested it's pointless making it legal cos there'll be a 9-month waiting list.

    Is indeed, I started the thread with post 2? Timestamp suggests David posted before me, but surely not with the exact same title. Suitably odd.

    Ahhh... Might be an explanation for that oddness then, mods merging posts/threads.

    Which is basically the same as aliens because the mods are aliens. So very odd!

    Mate, I posted the story a little ahead of you.

    Your headline was catchier then mine, so the Mods merged the threads?

    Perhaps his mother could seek financial compensation from him for not having introduced himself before conception?

    Texan saves every 1c coin he could for 65 years

    Prosperity Bank staff were shocked when 81-year old Ira Keys turned up with more than 81,600 pennies he had collected over 65 years.

    https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x2fuo1o

    Meanwhile, another guy collected pennies for 45 years, and didn't even blink when the US gov in the 70s offered a $25 premium on every $100 of pennies. But finally called it a day 30 years later when he discovered he had so many that they weren't covered by his house insurance; not like someone could sneak in at night and nick them, but he decided to cash in. So he carted his 2,800 lbs of pennies in 15x5 gallon water bottles to the bank, and after 5 hours of counting by a machine received the princely sum of $5,136, and 14c back.



    My own coin bottles must be worth almost that, in 8-10 years.

    Pennies gained their value on the back of Indian slave labour.

    We don't get any say in being born. Some bloke and some bint spend a few minutes bumping and grinding and nine months later we appear in the world. Nobody fucking asks us first. It's something foisted upon us by two people 15, 20, 25, 30 or more years older than us! Then what? Are we free to do what we want? Are we fuck. Suck on this tit. Stick this bottle in yer gob. Take a spoon full of this gooey shite for yer breakfast son, and shit in this nappy and sit in it for a while while I cook yer dad's dinner.


    And when we get a bit bigger, they take us off to school, whether we like it or not. Don't wanna go to school? Fuck you. You're going. For the next decade! And any more of yer shite, whack. Somebody bigger than you will whack you and tell you to follow the "rules". Rules they fucking made without asking me. Bastards.


    Then after forcing you to go to school, they then force you to go and get a fucking job. Don't wanna work? Find yourself somewhere else to stay then. Fook off. So you're stuck with working for a living. And if you get sick of it and want to top yourself, it's against the fooking law in most countries so you become a criminal for wanting to end your shitty life. It's just not fucking fair, is it? So what are your options then? Drink or post on TD! Or both! Well, here's my post. I'm off to the fridge to get me beer. Fuck off.


    Happy Nev.
