Man Steal Motorcycle One Piece At a Time 26

A Chinese man was arrested for stealing a motorcycle over the course of 5 years from the factory where he worked. The man, identified only as Zhang, was an assembly line worker in the motorcycle factory and took Johnny Cash's advice by stealing the bike one piece at a time so he wouldn't get caught. "I don't have that much money, so I came up with the idea of taking the parts home and assembling them on my own," said Zhang. Soon after finishing his bike, Zhang was pulled over by the police, who soon discovered he had no paperwork. He admitted to theft, was fined, put on probation for a year, and ordered to return the motorcycle to the factory.

    This reminds me of the old Johnny Cash song!

    "One Piece At A Time"

    Well, I left Kentucky back in '49
    An' went to Detroit workin' on a 'sembly line
    The first year they had me puttin' wheels on cadillacs

    Every day I'd watch them beauties roll by
    And sometimes I'd hang my head and cry
    'Cause I always wanted me one that was long and black.

    One day I devised myself a plan
    That should be the envy of most any man
    I'd sneak it out of there in a lunchbox in my hand
    Now gettin' caught meant gettin' fired
    But I figured I'd have i

      reminds you of it, eh? How did it do that? By mentioning it in the article by chance?

        God, does the rod up your butt have its own rod up its butt? My comment was merely an attempt at humor. I didn't read the article. Now take your Valium and go to bed. You definitely need the rest.

        If my sorry attempt at humor gets you this upset, I'd hate to imagine how you'd face any real tragedy in your sorry little life.

          Actually it was in the article summary.

          New low for slashdotters, they no longer bother to even read the article summaries!

          Guess I shouldn't be surprised.

          HTF did you get any points for your last post anyway? Oh I guess the use of italics. +2 points for use of HTML!

          I Can use it too.

          Wait, let me mention a rod up the butt. Ahh! I totally deserve at least 2000 points for this post. I'm so clever.

          I think I will go to Starbucks and type this while reciting it outloud!

            Well duh! The fact that it was in the blurb is what reminded me of it! (Damn, I'm not doing so well this week!)

          Heh. Ironically enough, your crazed frothy-mouthed rant is actually a whole lot more humorous (albeit unintentionally) than your original "attempt at humour"! There's something quite sweet about a humourless person going nuts because nobody applauded their attempted joke: "GAAAAARGH I am being playful and lighthearted! Laugh, you bastards, laugh!"

          Seriously though. Lighten up.

      That's interesting. This really reminds me of that Johnny Cash song "One Piece At A Time", though.

    • ...you apparently can't even RTFS. I mean, seriously. Two sentences into the summary:

      The man, identified only as Zhang, was an assembly line worker in the motorcycle factory and took Johnny Cash's advice by stealing the bike one piece at a time so he wouldn't get caught.

      I thought it was bad enough that 99.8% of Slashdotters don't RTFA (myself included for some articles), but if we can't at least agree to read the summary, how can we possibly have any sort of discussion. To put it bluntly, Epic Fail.

        Your probably forgetting about the large amount of people here who barely know who Johnny Cash is let alone what songs he wrote. Not everyone listens to hip hop or country or whatever he sings.

      I can see how someone moderated this as redundant because the song was half assed mentioned in the summery, but it's actually informative. This is because although I know who Johny Cash is, I do not listen to him and had no idea he actually had a song named one piece at a time or what it said. The article summery said "took Johny Cash's advice", this could have been something offered in an interview sometime, he could of had some reality TV program or something before he died, he could have been talking abo

  • I had a similar experience with a dirt bike back in the 80's, but it was not theft. My cousin and I were ready for a weekend of riding when we discovered that the cast-aluminum rear hub was cracked and unrepairable. Facing a now ruined weekend, we set out to the junkyard. We found a hub and rim, sprocket and chain, etc. from various junk bikes of different brands. When it was done we called it the Yamahodakasuki. The hack job only lasted one day, but we took it as a victory.
