    Sounds like the poor guy needs help. Too bad our mental health services in the US are pretty crappy.

    Sounds to me like he’s an economic nonconformist.  This is madness and he must be locked away before he hurts somebody’s profitability.

    Also, I liked the part where the expert from the water department said “Gosh there was a bunch of pipes but nobody knows what they do.”

      Or he’s, you know, a crazy bum.

        At least he’s not sitting in a cubicle, working for imaginary worth. Seems like he has more to do with reality than the majority of people that live on this world.

           Exactly,  This would be a much better world if we all just sat around in our underwear in a pile of rubble.  Who needs all this technology, medicine, food, and security….  Oh wait, are we on the internet right now?

            “The Savage stood looking on. “O brave new world, O brave new world …” In his mind the singing words seemed to change their tone. They had mocked him through his misery and remorse, mocked him with how hideous a note of cynical derision! Fiendishly laughing, they had insisted on the low squalor, the nauseous ugliness of the nightmare. Now, suddenly, they trumpeted a call to arms. “O brave new world!” Miranda was proclaiming the possibility of loveliness, the possibility of transforming even the nightmare into something fine and noble. “O brave new world!” It was a challenge, a command.”

            Aldous Huxley

            “To survive, to avert what we have termed future shock, the individual must become infinitely more adaptable and capable than ever before. We must search out totally new ways to anchor ourselves, for all the old roots – religion, nation, community, family, or profession – are now shaking under the hurricane impact of the accelerative thrust. It is no longer resources that limit decisions, it is the decision that makes the resources.”

            There’s a whole lot of entitled people on this world, buying into the illusion of being an imitation of royalty. As long as they feel safe surrounded by their crap, they are just fine.Because that is what they are told it is to be fine. Myopia is destroying this planet.

    Doesn’t seem much crazier than the average primate… certainly more uniquely crazy than average, though! :)
    I guess if he really is squatting on the Utility’s land they’ve got to get him out now. Squatters rights kick in if you don’t make a fuss when you find someone on your land if I understand the process.

    “He needs to be taken care of,” said nearby resident Elizabeth Clay who thinks the caveman should be evicted. “I don’t know this man, I don’t know if he could hurt anybody.”

    I don’t know Mitt Romney or Barack Obama.  They should be evicted!

    We certainly don’t want free people running around and making people think.
