      Think of how many wife/cousins you could keep in a cave. You could still poop for heat and you'd not be bothered by authority.

      Except for those pesky spelunkers.

      One must truly burrow deep in order to be kept away from the confines of The Man.

      I think I could have cut it better with a blunt pocket knife and it wouldn't even need to be filled it with poop.

      I mean that's what happens in totalitarian and oppressive societies.

      No shame living at home so long as you're working on a plan to become independent. I didn't move out until I was 23, then I moved back at 28 and then I was a homeowner by 30.

      I concur. Being on the dole is different.

      What about living at home, but pretending that you're working on a plan to become independent by occasionally throwing some trash into the back of a 25 year old minivan while never really having any intention or capability of making any progress?

      This is really important stuff he's doing in this thread.

      Unless you poop in a bag. Then you are showing everyone you are against the man.

While my friends enjoyed premium cable channels, frequent trips to cafes and restaurants, and the latest model cars, I was willing to do without those things and had no trouble paying my rent and other bills on a modest salary.
      Yeah... those are prime years one shouldnt be wasting, doing some job to make ends meet.

      I sure af don't want him living in an old van and pooping in bags.

      If youre really good at noticing faults, see any major ones in my CNC design so far?

      After these few years, when it all comes together I will have shown a micro home built from minimal materials and skills... what accomplishments can others claim to be worthy of? Making a dent in their life long mortgage debts?

      It was a good idea... and actually this Gremlins rear shape is pretty nice and to add the whole concept to the ZX.


      If I continue the stock Z roof line to the rear, it swoops like a Porsche's end but I prefer a large cabin of course.

      Man, if you completed even 5% of the stuff you post about, you might not even need to live in a van.

      I'm rooting for you Vig, I hope one day you're able to get all that garbage into your van so you can finally move out from your mom's basement and live your dream of killing yourself via carbon monoxide poisoning in a van filled with your own ****.

      In all the years I've been here I've only seen a very crude styrofoam skull made from his home-made CNC. Anybody seen any other output from it? I wonder if he bought his mom a new cutting board? Did I miss that, too?

      Front end kit ever finished? Model supercars? Anything?

      He's almost completed a full sentence in English a few times.

      Barry, given the CNC machine must travel on its vertical axis and modern society's rat race culture puts a pressure equivalent to 5 atmospheres on it and Vig, I think the crude skull was an impressive feat.

      He did also attach a tent to the back of his van, lest we forget that shining example of human achievement.

      I think once Vig can break free of the shackles of the western oppression he faces daily and is able to marry a cousin and crap in bags like nature intended, you'll be eating those words about his not amounting to anything. Vig is like $APPL in the early 2000s, he's due to explode.

      A bounty for his like-minded band of lost souls living off poop and sticking it to the man. I wonder if he's going to use the man's petroleum product in his van? He'll pay his taxes that way. That should stick in his craw.

      I guess I've wasted my whole life sleeping in a big bed with my wife.

      Vig is one of three,

      1- Trolling
      2- Mentally ill
      3- Far ahead of us and he's onto something that our simple minds are unable to comprehend, think Noah and his Ark!
