What If…We Had Zoos for Hobos?

What If...We Had Zoos for Hobos?

Suggested by xornell

It’d provide hobos with housing and food while giving zoo patrons (who pay admission which would go to food and upkeep costs) the entertainment value of hobo activities.

Is this feasible?
Inhumane?
Could I patent this idea and make a profit of Hobo Zoos?

    The heck Xornell? This is definitely not humane. Heck, if you actually patent this idea, then I’ll put you in my zoo, considering I’m rich and consider you all Hobos.

  2. Sauroposeidon August 22, 2014 at 7:41 am -      #2

    It’d be labeled as dehumanizing by someone eventually no matter how much it’d benefit the hobos. It wouldn’t matter that Entertainment TV is basically an on-screen version of this for celebrities and we’re all just fine with that.

    I don’t know that you’d garner enough interest in this to make enough money to keep the project going.

    Sooner or later some asshole government official will try to make it mandatory for their city’s hobos to go there. Which in turn makes it prison for the crime of misfortune.

    They already have that, it’s called prison. I can’t tell you how many times cops have tried to get me for vagrancy.


    That said, as someone who is on the verge of being homeless again. I’d live in a zoo as long as I got a roof over my head, and internet access.

    Wow, two of my better suggestions in one week? Good to see the tumor hasn’t impeded your ability to make interesting posts, admin. Srs tho, thanks.

    I think you all need to have faith in the concept. I’ll show you all when my kick starter finally takes off… After I finally make one.

    Also I haven’t died. I’ve just been busy. I’ll be around regularly soon. Planning on quitting my job lol

    I’m there with ya zomb. Spending my last dollar to move half way across the country to live with family since I’m losing where I live.

    We can be hobos in a zoo together. We could form a fierce rivalry where we appear to hate each other but in the sequel join forces against a new enemy!

  7. Private Khaos August 22, 2014 at 9:09 am -      #7

    This sounds like a mixture between prison and a homeless shelter. Also what if the hobo doesn’t want to live there? What if he decides he/she doesn’t want to live at the zoo anymore? Can they leave whenever they want? And hell yeah this is inhumane

    .
    Feasible?
    .
    I am not sure. Food and lodging alone is expensive, not to mention utilities, building permits, land rights, and construction of the actual park itself. Entrance fees alone might not be able to sustain it. You better have income generating projects in mind.
    .
    Inhumane?
    .
    As long as the hobos are volunteers and are happy with it, it doesn’t really matter. Also, don’t call it a “zoo”, call it an “entertainment center”.
    .
    “Could I patent this idea and make a profit of Hobo Zoos?”
    .
    This idea is not new. It’s known as job hiring. I am also pretty sure the same idea has already been done with dwarves.

    Alright, WTF?

    If you rephrase this as “homeless shelter with public visiting” than there’s nothing wrong with it.

  10. Sauroposeidon August 22, 2014 at 9:51 am -      #10

    Khaos, is it inhumane if the hobo isn’t forced in to it? Because I would seriously consider this if I were homeless. When’re hurting for food it’s pretty bad. But shelter too? I’ve never been that quite bad off so I can’t comment but I assume many of us have been on the Ramen train before. Imagine if you didn’t even have the facilities to prepare your ramen. How fucked would you be at that point?

    You should also not mention that meme because it’s retarded. Most memes don’t deserve the love and adoration they receive.

  13. Private Khaos August 22, 2014 at 10:44 am -      #13

    @Sauro

    You have a point. Although I’m still in Highschool and don’t know what it would be like to be homeless I could see the arguments you could make of it. There would be cons and pros to something like this but the idea of a zoo for homeless people doesn’t sound right to me

  14. Sauroposeidon August 22, 2014 at 10:46 am -      #14

    It’s because we associate zoos with us caging animals and thus using the term for hobos sounds like you’re removing their humanity.

  15. Epicazeroth August 22, 2014 at 11:48 am -      #15

    Feasibility: Probably not. Humans are much higher-maintenance than other animals. Well, maybe not food-wise, but there would have to be utilities (hopefully) and at least some basic luxuries (presumably) which could rack up quite the bill. Not to mention that most people probably would never go to something like this. First of all, a lot would object on moral grounds; secondly, I can’t imagine it would be very interesting.

    Inhumanity: See, the problem with this isn’t the inhumane part – though it could get there depending how far this goes. It’s more just a serious invasion of privacy. We can get away with it with animals because they’re not sapient, so they don’t register it as an invasion of privacy. With humans, we’re much more territorial. So being put on display like this implies (where they’re separated from the visitors) would be degrading. Also, there’s not much to do if they’re not separated, so any visitors would end up just staring at them. At the very least, it would be extremely annoying.

    Patentability: Err… My dad’s works at the PTO, but I don’t really want to ask him, “Is it possible to patent zoos for homeless people?” But based on my knowledge, probably not.

  16. Sauroposeidon August 22, 2014 at 1:00 pm -      #16

    Oh! Oh! Ask him if it’s possible to patent uses for the word fucktard! Ask him! Ask him!

    Yes
    Yes
    Maybe if you don’t mind being hated.

    Alternatively turn it into a reality show. It’s essentially what some of them are. Zoos housing various people in housing for our entertainment.

  23. Pizzarolla August 22, 2014 at 8:34 pm -      #23

    Inhumane? Not by my standards. In 2004, in my senior English class, I came up with an idea that I’m fairly sure the Hunger Games was based on…

    See, we FORCE the hobos into a gladiatorial fight to the death. The last man standing becomes filthy stinking rich. We would do this about once every ten to twenty years, once the numbers of the vagrant population had time to recover.

    I believe the comment my teacher used to describe my idea was “nazism”…

    By my standards, this idea is quite tame!

  24. Sauroposeidon August 22, 2014 at 8:42 pm -      #24

    Pizzarolla, I think you and I are in for a long and prosperous friendship.

  25. Epicazeroth August 22, 2014 at 9:46 pm -      #25

    @Pizzarolla: Wait. Why do your teachers wait for proper provocation before calling you a Nazi?

    Sort of a joke, though my 5th grade teacher did actually call everyone (mostly me) Hitler. It wasn’t entirely undeserved or unfounded, but still.
    ===
    @Lowk:
    “Yes
    Yes
    Maybe if you don’t mind being hated.”
    1) Is it? Depending on what utilities and/or luxuries you’re providing (plus upkeep of furniture) and to what extent, there may have to be some ridiculously high entrance fees.
    2) I agree.
    3) You’re forgetting one thing here. Is there anybody who would actually let him patent this? Regardless of the technical legality (highly suspect in itself) I doubt a federal employee would pass something like this. In the extremely unlikely event it passed, he’d be receiving lawsuits by the dozen within the hour.

  26. Parry Boy August 22, 2014 at 9:47 pm -      #26

    @pizzarolla
    That would actually be very helpful to the economy, seeing that the hobos sometimes are served by the goverment, thus decreasing funds for prosperous economies, and like it or not, everyone doesn’t find hobos quite appealing to the eye in an urbanized area.

  27. Ranger Lowk August 22, 2014 at 10:16 pm -      #27

    What exactly would be the environment? Most zoos add the natural habitat of the creature put in it. So what would be human’s natural habitat? For that matter how decked out would it be. Mobile home, apartment building, two story house?
    How would the zoo goers observe them, maybe via a glass wall on one side of the housing?

    “Is it? Depending on what utilities and/or luxuries you’re providing (plus upkeep of furniture) and to what extent, there may have to be some ridiculously high entrance fees.”

    Well assuming these people are used to the bare essentials right so maybe start off cheap. Small housing, little luxuries, enough food not to go hunrgy. Then if money starts to add up you can increase the luxuries.

    I’m fairly certain there are people who would be fine to letting people watch them do stuff in exchange for stuff. Wasn’t that pretty much the basis for Real World?

  30. Ranger Lowk August 22, 2014 at 10:51 pm -      #30

    “There’s something called morals..”

    There is also dignity and self respect but some people either don’t have or lost those qualities.
    Thats why it probably would attract attention whores, shameless, or desperate homeless people. And if you marketed right I’m betting people would come or watch a live feed.

    So basically Big Brother for Hobos without the whiny teenagers? No thanks, I’d rather warch 2 Girls 1 Cup. (Don’t watch 2 Girls 1 Cup, it’s gross.) And for the Hunger Games thing, well there will be maby people who will make themselves poor to gwt that money. And there will be more dark alleys where peole will gwt beat up or die.

    I think if we introduce a project similar to soylent green that would actually clean up our hobo problem fairly quickly. While maybe not fit for human consumption it’d make for fine meal for farm animals probably. Or cheap pet food.

  43. Ragnorke August 23, 2014 at 9:48 am -      #43

    ” While maybe not fit for human consumption it’d make for fine meal for farm animals probably. Or cheap pet food.”

    Well, why not feed prisoners to pets too?
    Atleast prisoners committed crimes… whereas hobos are just unlucky/lazy fuckers.

  44. the_man_with The_Answers August 23, 2014 at 11:25 am -      #44

    If it ever got created, it would last maybe a year before reality TV realized that there is money to be made in homeless people. Then they just create endless shows about homeless people and their drama. You get to see all the same funny things that homeless people do without having to travel, pay extra, or smell them.

  45. Ragnorke August 23, 2014 at 12:11 pm -      #45

    oh shit, i just got what could potentially be a great idea…

    How about we make a reality tv show of Hobos fighting criminals to the death?
    If criminals win, their sentence gets shortened. If hobos win, they get some cash.
    Either way, it decreases the number of criminals & homeless people.
    Their meat can be used to feed the other prisoners, and as “pet food” and etc…

  46. Ranger Lowk August 23, 2014 at 12:36 pm -      #46

  48. Glutinous-Bicarbonate August 23, 2014 at 1:02 pm -      #48

    Just finished The Legend of Broken a while ago, and their social engineering merely called for anyone not considered working towards personal perfection to be formally banished, ritually de-limbed, and then left inside of a terrible forest with ten foot long wolves and panthers to die.

    The place kinda sucked.

  49. Ranger Lowk August 23, 2014 at 1:50 pm -      #49

    Combining the idea of zoo and Ragnorke idea of fight criminals.
    Itd be a spin off series. Entertainers by day vigilantes by night.

    @Lowk: “And if you marketed right I’m betting people would come or watch a live feed.”
    So, for example, don’t ever use the words “zoo” or “hobo”?
    ===
    @Ninja: “No thanks, I’d rather warch 2 Girls 1 Cup. (Don’t watch 2 Girls 1 Cup, it’s gross.)”
    I actually just watched it (for the first time). The disgustingness was grossly overstated. Then again, I have a veeeerrryyyyyy high tolerance for basically every concept that requires a tolerance; if I had to read a description of it, it would have probably been much worse.
    ===
    @Ragnorke: “Atleast prisoners committed crimes… whereas hobos are just unlucky/lazy fuckers.”
    1) Mostly unlucky. Then possibly exacerbated by laziness.
    2) Many homeless people actually did commit crimes. That’s why they’re homeless (sometimes the other way around.)

    “Either way, it decreases the number of criminals & homeless people.”
    Possibly, but irrelevant. It leads to more violent criminals and homeless people. Mainly criminals; any homeless person who’s not also a criminal wouldn’t stand a chance. And how many people are in this competition? It decreases the amount of homeless people or criminals by like 15 per year? Guess how many new criminals are made each year?
    ===
    @Sauro: “While maybe not fit for human consumption it’d make for fine meal for farm animals probably. Or cheap pet food.”
    1) Name one scavenger that humans raise and eat.
    2) Pet food? Wouldn’t that lead to feral, sick, or hungry-for-man-flesh dogs and cats?

  56. Ragnorke August 23, 2014 at 5:19 pm -      #56

    “And how many people are in this competition? It decreases the amount of homeless people or criminals by like 15 per year? Guess how many new criminals are made each year?”

    Number could obviously change depending on the situation. why limit it to 15, instead of say 15 million?

  57. Sauroposeidon August 23, 2014 at 7:23 pm -      #57

    “1) Name one scavenger that humans raise and eat.”

    Pretty sure we get mad cow usually from feeding cows cow. I don’t see why ground hobo meal couldn’t be switched out as part of their feed. It’d drastically reduce the outbreak of mad cow, that’s for sure.

    I’ve slept for 13 hours today and I like the progress that has been made here. There’s no reason not to televise the zoo, either. I say we gather up some hobos and make this thing a reality! Also, good to see more people I know here. Thought you all died.

    “and abs you can grate some cheese on.”
    Doesn’t that mean you have absolutely no muscle mass? You need small intervals to grate cheese, and abs get bigger the more you work them.

    “And Traps that make it look like you have a second pair of shoulders”
    How does that work? Isn’t that about 4-8 inches to the side of where shoulders are? What would that even look like?
    ===
    @Xornell: “Don’t forget the shield lats”
    Isn’t that the opposite shape from well-developed lats? Shields are convex; lats should be concave.

    “quads made of bricks”
    Muscles should never look like prisms.

    “and glutes capable of turning coal into diamonds”
    Didn’t you read The Hunger Games? Graphite turns into diamond, not coal. Plus, if they’re that close together and that pressurized, how do you shit?

    “Sounds difficult to live with.”
    Being a bodybuilder IS difficult to live with.

    “Doesn’t that mean you have absolutely no muscle mass? You need small intervals to grate cheese, and abs get bigger the more you work them.”
    If you are adding mass to your abs, you’re doing it wrong. The idea is to have them as defined and cut as possible, not as big as possible.

    “How does that work? Isn’t that about 4-8 inches to the side of where shoulders are? What would that even look like?”

    They look like a second/smaller pair of shoulders imo.

    “Isn’t that the opposite shape from well-developed lats? Shields are convex; lats should be concave.”
    What? Shields are circular. A good set of lats should make your back look circular.

    “Muscles should never look like prisms.”
    He said MADE OF, not look like. It means they are hard as bricks.

    “Plus, if they’re that close together and that pressurized, how do you shit?”
    You pressurize them by flexing, not be default.

    @Sauroposeidon, I’ve actually been around this site for a few years now. I was around back when there weren’t registered accounts on the site and we all used gravatar for posting.

    I was around quite a time before either Chuck Inglish or Mike was here also, but I rarely ever post. Truth is, there’s only one or two characters I really care about, and the only one worth posting about is the Dragon Reborn.

    I actually left for a few months after AHEM disappeared also. As far as I know, he’s the only one who ever liked Rand as much as I do, and it was a bit depressing to me when he stopped coming around.

    Only reason I’m here now is one of the other sites I frequent ended up vanishing, so I needed something to fill up the empty slot.

    “but I rarely ever post. Truth is, there’s only one or two characters I really care about, and the only one worth posting about is the Dragon Reborn.”

    You shoulda taken part in the Magic the Gathering vs Wheel of Time debate!
    It’s fairly recent. Aelfinn & I were debating for WoT, and there were lots of calcs surrounding Rand.
    It sorta died out after 900ish posts.

  82. Pizzarolla August 24, 2014 at 10:43 pm -      #82

    Yeah, I probably wasn’t around at that time. Sucks I missed out on that one. I get a kick out of Rand, and the rest of his universe. I mean, enough power to basically level a city the size of any major metropolitan city now days, in just one blow? Even a nuke couldn’t do that. Not unless it was in the tens of megatons range.

    Oddly enough, I like WoT for the power level of it’s characters, like I just explained above. However, SoT holds a special place in my heart because I’m a loyal follower of objectivism, and other than Ayn Rand’s books, SoT may as well be a bible on the philosophy.

    @Ragnorke
    Really? Guess I’ll just have you all arrested for assault and batter. Xander’s uncle is a general in the police, so you can only hope you can hire Phoenix Wright as your attorney.

    I’m really sorry, Pizzarolla, seeing as that you are an avid WoT fan, but I must express my opinion that objectivism is bullshit. Do with that what you will.

    1. We don’t need to fight. Shit just disintegrates in our presence.
    2. Battery*
    3. General in the police? That doesn’t sound like the right term. Well either way that’s the Philippines. So meh… I’m a Murican.
    4. I’m about to go into law school, and thus have made friends with many lawyers. Phoenix Wright is a punk ass bitch.

    1. Even better, ignore everything and treat some as a joke and laugh at it.
    2. Batman*
    3. It starts with PO1, up to PO[insert number], and then SPO1 until SPO[insert number] then a few levels more and it’s a Chief, or as we call it here, Hepe. (Read it as it spells.)

    *PO= Police Officer
    SPO= Special(?) PO*

    4. OBJECTION!
    Phoenix Wright is actually a great Lawyer, he seeks the tiny bits and parts of the situation, but is easily intimidated.

  88. Pizzarolla August 25, 2014 at 7:18 am -      #88

    @Aelfinn, That’s fine man, and no need to apologize. No offense taken. I’m not debating, or trying to swing your opinion when I say this, so please don’t take it wrong, but one of the principles of objectivism is that we are all entitled to our own beliefs, and I can’t ask you to come to my way of things. All I can ask is that you respect my right to my own.

    Besides, what with you being a WoT fan yourself, I can hardly be mad with you :)

    “You might have an army, but with an army of Tyranids and Space Marines.”

    You will still get crushed by my one Tau Battle Suit. It only took three R’Varnas to hold off an entire nid invasion. One could one army do against even a single R’Varna?

    Oh and I have a Mecha-Kaiju. So, bring it little girl.

    Why are you all defending Parry Boy?
    @Xornell
    1. Shouldn’t you disintegrate each other then?
    2. I was making pancakes so I was thinking about batter.
    3. That’s what he said.
    4. I’m pretty sure that Phoenix Wright will solve more murder cases than you or your friends.
    @Sauroposideon
    You have to go through my clones of Superman, Goku, and Galactus. Oh and what’s the name of your mecha kaiju? The name of my kaiju is King Ghidorah.

    ” Shouldn’t you disintegrate each other then?”

    Brolifters don’t disintegrate other brolifters. They only disintegrate the weak willed.

    “brolifters don’t disintegrate other brolifters”
    Then how so you become a brolifter? Everyone is weak willed when young right? Better yet, how were yout born? If you disintegrate everyone who is weak willed, shouldn’t you disintegrate the shop clerk you flirt with?
    “Are we?”
    Then stop defending him. I’m hunting him down for Ellie.
    @Ranger Lowk
    I’m trying to hunt down Parry Boy because he reminded Ellie her being molested once.
    @Sauroposideon
    That’s Impossible! The picture you showed us only showed 1 head! Plus there’s the fact that there’s only one King Ghidorah. Unless you cloned him then chopped of two of his heads!

  97. Ragnorke August 25, 2014 at 7:19 pm -      #97

    “Then how so you become a brolifter?”

    …by lifting

    ” Everyone is weak willed when young right?”

    Nope. I was born with 6pack abs & a will of iron.

    ” If you disintegrate everyone who is weak willed, shouldn’t you disintegrate the shop clerk you flirt with?”

    The disintegration occurs when we flex.
    You mere mortals can’t comprehend the power of it, and thus you disintegrate.

    “Then stop defending him. I’m hunting him down for Ellie.”

    Err… oki…

    “I’m trying to hunt down Parry Boy because he reminded Ellie her being molested once.”

    This… umm… err… Ok i’m so confused now

    Nope. I was born with fat chaps.

    ” If you disintegrate everyone who is weak willed, shouldn’t you disintegrate the shop clerk you flirt with?”

    I flirt with psychos.

    “Then stop defending him. I’m hunting him down for Ellie.”

    I CHALLENGE YOU WITH MY SHINY MEWTWO

    “I’m trying to hunt down Parry Boy because he reminded Ellie her being molested once.”

    Iiiiiit’s a long story. I hate my hands.
