If it wasn’t for bad luck, wouldn’t have no luck at all

Yeesh, Chris Clarke had his jeep stolen again. It must have been some sweet machine, although it’s been totaled now.

    Yeah, well, owning a jeep is asking for it, right? How do you know he didn’t leave the door open? Where’s the evidence? A crashed jeep isn’t evidence, he might have let a friend drive it but then the friend totalled it and now he regrets it. Besides, if you had it stolen once, and let it be stolen again, you must like having your jeep stolen. If it was stolen at all.

    Fuck. That sucks.

    PZ, thank you.

    It must have been some sweet machine

    That’s what confuses me. It WAS a great Jeep, with immense sentimental value and an engine that could have kept going well past the Anthropocene, but it wasn’t shiny. It was dinged and a bit dirty and had a long crack across the windshield even before it was stolen in June, and when I got it back the interior was stripped and the windshield had a web of fractures all across it.

    This was not an eye-candy car, except to a couple of us who knew better. Maybe Cherokees are easier to start with a shaved key? I don’t know.

    Someone from the intarnets took an interest. Just an hypothesis.

    #FTBbullies stole Chris Clarke’s jeep.

    It could have been stolen to transport drugs (etc.) off road. My brother-in-law had a 4-wheel truck that was stolen for exactly that reason.

    FTR, I tweeted what dexitroboper said @#4 BEFORE I CAME OVER HERE.

    If you roll it after crashing into a pole at speed you’re not good at driving even if you’re running from cops.

    You could still use it as a roofless flower bed if it isn’t scraped yet.

    @Suido: I see what you did there. For those who missed why that’s funny, here.

    Back luck there, Chris.

    Damn, that sucks. At least I still have my 2000 Grand V-ger, even though it’s been stolen 3 times.

    @Suido and @Alethea
    I loved that post. Any other feminist fans of Chris could do what I’ve done and send him something from his REI wishlist.

    It’s to replace the camping gear stolen from his jeep.

    The first link that was posted for Chris’s REI wishlist might not work. I was able to ship to Mr. Clark from this page:
