Why does this make her a "Hero"?

kmmontandon: Why does this make her a "Hero"?


Her carbon footprint is next to nothing. She is happy and at peace. I like goats, etc.

- We did do the nose.
- And the hat. But she is a witch !
- Did you dress her up like this?
- No, no!
- Yes. A bit.
- She has got a wart.

banned technology

And yet I see a house that was built, a harp, jars, baskets, furniture and clothing... this goddamn place is FULL of technology.


Furthermore...

"She fetches water from a stream and keeps three goats, seven chickens and two horses"


Well, she's doing better than Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater.

You know who else rejected mainstream society, lived in the hills and banned technology?

Relatively Obscure: banned technology

I know. She's got fire and everything!

At least she didn't head off to Alaska and live out of a derelict bus.

/obscure?

Nothing To See Here: I smell patchouli oil.


No, because that's technology. Or something.

The woman is definitely British-pretty, though. So she's got that going for her. Which is nice. I guess.

It's all well and good until you think you can communicate with the bears.

Maybe the reporter had one of those iconographs with an imp inside.

Those are probably low-tech enough to get in.

They pay her a donation, which covers her £63-a-month council tax payments, repair costs and supplies of grain.

Why doesn't she grow the grain herself?
 
2012-12-29 01:14:16 AM
Huzzah, she's managed to do what a couple of billion other people have done every day of their lives.
What a hero.

Is it just me or is she kind of hot?

I hope the stream cures her when she gets cancer.

at a certain point a girl learns that long, flowing unshaved body hair keeps her warm in colder months.

That's all well and good until you need a filling or some antibiotics for the odd infection.

I guess you could just pull out that tooth with some pliers, unless that's too tech-y.
 
2012-12-29 04:34:44 AM
If she'd have gone to Cambridge, she might have been offered employment
 
2012-12-29 04:37:11 AM
Good for her. Who cares what she looks like? I seriously wish I could live like that.
 
2012-12-29 04:38:38 AM
Came here for A WITCH!!, see that's been covered.
 
2012-12-29 04:39:38 AM
Also, she's not "hot" or "English hot" or "British hot." She's old and ugly

Methinks she hath been hitting the pipe weed way too hard for way too long. But that's just like my opinion man.
 
2012-12-29 04:40:49 AM
Generates her own positively non-technological electricity, you mean?

Krieghund: Obligatory Uncle Buck


came for this.

"I'm Buck Melanoma. Moley Russell's wart. Not her wart. Not her wart! I'm... I'm the wart. She's my tumor. My... my growth. My... uh, my pimple. I'm Uncle Wart. Just old Buck "Wart" Russell. That's what they call me, or Melanoma Head. They'll call me that. "Melanoma Head's coming."

Have hobbits heard of Radon?
 
2012-12-29 04:48:38 AM
I dated her once. When she said she'd let me do her in her mud hut, I was expecting something else.
 
2012-12-29 04:48:58 AM
 
2012-12-29 04:48:59 AM
Not sure she deserves the Hero tag, but she's living on her own terms, is happy, and not harming anyone else. More power to her.
 
2012-12-29 04:51:04 AM
Yes, people can and did live this way.

Except for the part where she's over 50 and completely healthy that is.

She looks well in need for some modern medicine. Unfortunately, she has the NIH.

Came here to post, "Someone give that woman a quarter."
 
2012-12-29 04:58:22 AM
Sure, it's great that she's found her place in the world and she's happy and all... but am I the only one who wants to park nearby and blast some dubstep?

Or maybe Gungam Style on a loop all night?
 
2012-12-29 04:59:52 AM
Who in the hell does she have sex with? If the answer is "no one," and I'm guessing it is, then what the hell does she look forward to every day? "Yippee, I get to eat and sh*t for one more day"?

That's so sad. I'm sure she's pretending to be happy, maybe even lying to herself about it, but ... no f*cking? She's not happy.
 
2012-12-29 04:59:57 AM
I forgot to add that it isn't a Hobbit style mud hut. Hobbits don't live in huts they live in holes in the ground. Not a dirty wet nasty hole (like I'm sure that hut is) filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell. Nor a dry bare sandy hole. A Hobbit hole means comfort!

You wish. I have a strong suspicion that there are much stronger odors afoot.

Interesting. Does her mud hut dance?
