Something tells me fishbowls are something he’s all too familiar with. As grand as this plan of leaving what basically amounts to a piggy bank in the middle of a public sidewalk is, there’s only one thing that could get in the way…..

So some Williamsburg hippy decided to walk into an intersection in downtown Northampton and throw up $389 into the air, all in one dollar bills, because…….Northampton:
That was fantastic. It’s like feeding the ducks at Elm Park, except all the money will eventually end up at Whole Foods:
Does it count if he catches his own money?
Meanwhile he’s standing across the street watching the best $389 he’s ever spent:
LOL. Look at all those idiots worried about money!! This guy’s even got a panhandling sign:
And he’s got a nice dog and actually looks like a non-homeless person. Because….Northampton.
I think we can all agree that the biggest loser in that video was this woman:
“Why aren’t you donating this to the hurricane victims? Three and a half million US citizens are suffering because our government is letting them die, and you would rather throw this money on the ground.”
Bitch, because it’s his money. He can do whatever the hell he wants to do with his money. How much money has your limousine liberal ass donated to the hurricane victims? And what exactly do you think $389 is gonna do for Puerto Rico? $300 of it isn’t even gonna end up getting there after every charity that touches it along the way takes their piece of the pie for “administrative costs.”
Here’s an idea – if you think that money would be better spent on hurricane recovery then grab it when he throws it in the air and send it to PR yourself. I swear, it’s these elitist Northampton SJWs who think they somehow have a right to tell other people what to do with their money. It’s like a brain disease to think this way.
I know some people will complain about the fact that he did this in a public intersection, and I’d be pissed if I was driving through and got delayed five minutes for this stunt. But at the same time, this is Northampton. The only thing they get mad at there are cops high fiving kids at the local elementary school.
Just after 5 p.m. on Thursday, Paul Vidich, 28, of Williamsburg, walked into the Northampton intersection of Main Street and Pleasant Street and tossed his most recent paycheck — all $389 of it — into the air.
“It felt really good,” Vidich said. “I guess what was nicest about it was that I was extremely present, I was extremely “there” for the experience and it was really simple and beautiful and joyful.”
Vidich said he felt free after dispensing with the wad of cash. “It was cool!” he said, explaining that he didn’t have a clear message behind the act but that it was just expressing a feeling he had about money.
He is the most amazing hippy I’ve ever seen.
Vidich, who is a carpenter by trade, said that he has a lot of anxiety about money and that he was pleased to let go of it. “I have a lot of money anxiety,” he said. “I’m afraid of spending money on everything. I park in free parking, I’m ridiculously frugal.”
Pretty sure throwing $389 in the air is the opposite of frugal, but I think the mushrooms you ate this morning got your brain working in really gnarly ways I can’t begin to understand. So keep doing you brotha!!
Vidich also said that he believed money could sometimes have a negative impact on society.
“Part of it is that I’m trying to show that money is ridiculous in all of these different ways, I’m not sure if I really did that, but that was one of the original intents,” he said.
Dude, if you wanna see funny things people will do for money you should’ve brought it up to Whately’s Club Castaway and made it rain all over Colrain’s finest. There isn’t much they won’t do for a dollar there. Or so I’ve heard.
Vidich said he was pleased with how the money looked as it was raining down into the street, explaining how he’d been stressing about whether the two wads of bills would simply go up and come back down.
The fact that his biggest concern was that the bills would stick together is amazing.
Before heading out into the intersection, Vidich was briefly harangued by a woman who asked him why he didn’t take the money and donate it to a charity organization to help victims of the hurricane in Puerto Rico. Afterward, Vidich said that he sympathized with the woman’s perspective. “I’m very grateful for her,” he said. “I have those thoughts. This is four hundred dollars practically, I could give it that somebody who could really use it.”
LOL. He’s so glorious. I know it’s just a saying, but I really want whatever he’s smoking.
But wait, it gets better. He has much grander visions in the future….
Vidich said he might even have an idea for the future. “The next idea I’ve been wanting to do is make a fishbowl that you can put money into.” Vidich said the idea would involve “installing” it in Northampton somewhere to see if it would get stolen, or if people would continue to “add and take from it.”
“I don’t know,” he said. “We’ll see if I ever get to it.”
Ahhh yes – laziness. The achilles heel of the rural American hippy.
Oh well, even if that dream doesn’t come to fruition he can still rest easy at night and dream about Bernie coming to his parent’s house topless and doing the backstroke in a pond while a fuzzy penguin rest it’s head on Bernie’s feet:
