Man if you want to sleep outside, you just need a damn sleeping bag.  Maybe not even that if it's good and warm.  Goddamn hippies.

That's why I built a bunker, like a real man. Your authority is not recognized in Fort Pussygrabber!

This looks wonderful for those nights when it is raining, snowing, sleeting, windy, really cold, or really hot.

I like that it has counter sunk screws.  Now if we just add a little bit of wall reinforcement, some roofing, and maybe some plumbing it will be as viable as living quarters built in the 1700s.

Wow - that sounds so much better, ECO friendly, and annoying than "using dead limbs laying on the ground"

Instead of "right wing" and "left wing" we should identify people's political views by how high or low from ground level they reside.
The extreme left wingers live high up in the trees, and the right-wing nuts live deep underground.

Using sustainably harvested woods found locally, Californian artist creates astounding human-sized "spirit nests"

And that's where I stopped reading. No amount of the dankest ganj could make me think that's a good idea. And I'm a strong proponent of couch-sized beanbag chairs.

Stopped reading at 'spirit nest'.
 
2013-04-03 11:02:41 AM  
Interesting, but what about all the other critters that will see one of these as an ideal place to live?

Like snakes, or rats, or birds, or squirrels, or insects, and on and on and on...?

/yes, rats do live in trees.

Sometimes I wait for my girl friend to pass out then I pull out, climb over the back of her, and make a bird's nest in her hair.  From now on, though, instead of thinking of it as a ratty wad of dried come, I'll think of it as a spirit nest.  She'll appreciate the romance.

Yes, because living in the trees is so much more sane than living in a cave.

I will sneak in when you are not in your nest, push your babies out to fall to their deaths on the ground below and then I'll leave my own babies in place of yours.

This looks kind of fun, although it wouldn't hold out rain very well.

FTA: "..  Californian artist creates..." and "...all along the Californian coast and elsewhere... "

It really bothers me that they kept saying Californian.  I understand that it may be grammatically correct, but that's not how we say it here in California.  It would be a California artist or California-based artist.  And the Californian coast just sounds strange. California coast.  That bothered me more than the oozing with hippy "spirit nests".  This article was just irritating all around.

It does look cozy, I admit. It also looks like somewhere a mountain lion might like a cat nap.

Doors. I likes thems.

Looks like someone said "What's a colossally bad idea I can profit from?  I know!"

The first time it rains while you're inside, you'll tear it down and realize how good your house is.

They must love termites and other critters enough to sleep in something that's basically a magnet for them.

joonyer: It does look cozy, I admit. It also looks like somewhere a mountain lion might like a cat nap.


I don't know.  Depending on the cat, the ladder to reach it may not be inviting enough to get it to climb up, sort of like how simple grates can allow you to have openings in your fences that cattle won't cross, but people can walk or drive across unimpeded.

Still, mountain lions are noted climbers.  I'd want to do some testing first - stick a similar setup in a mountain lion cage in a zoo or something, put something inviting up there that the cat wants(like lunch), and see how hesitant it for getting up there.

Sort of like how one bear sanctuary has a group of 'bear-proof' container testers, mostly composed of unrepentant trash scavengers.  They even talked about how their 'premier' tester practically had a checklist on things to try.
