Dumpsters are magically places that sometimes have free guacamole and the occasional hobo.

This is what happens when hipsters get old enough to divorce.  They mooch off their jobs, call it an educational experiment, and fark Millennials who ooohh and ahhh breathlessly over how centred and connected and, like,  real they are...

Interesting article.

My only complaint about him is that I don't care much for his taste in socks.

My ex-wife and I broke up after years of drifting apart (a slow death), eventually sleeping apart and falling out of love along the way. We didn't want our daughter to grow up thinking that a "normal" relationship was one where mommy and daddy slept in different rooms and didn't speak much to each other. So we decided it was best to separate and eventually divorce. It was painful for us, but there was no drama in front of the child and she doesn't actually remember us being together when I ask.

Doesn't sound like a "nasty divorce" at all, trollheadlinemitter.

I know he's divorced and has a girlfriend now, but is he sure he isn't gay? This pic makes me wonder.

See how he likes that dumpster by the end of May, or June, July, or August.

Do it, hipster!

He's obviously not a farker.  There was an article on here a couple of years ago about a company that can make dumpsters into livable homes

If he did that, you think he'd get news articles written about him?

No, it has to be a regular old dumpster.

He is a loser, whatever his taste in socks or housing.  Any decent man is committed to his marriage and doesn't fark around with that.  Marriage is for life, not an experiment, which this douche seems to be fond of.

I like how you omitted   "For my ex-wife and me, it started how it often starts -- seven years into our marriage, my wife browsed through my text messages and found a few things she wasn't all that thrilled about. (I still maintain my innocence.)"

Maybe it's just that I recently rewatched "True Detective", maybe it's the fact that this article was written by the man in question, but I call bullshiat. There's something else that wasn't self-reported.

El Supe: No wonder he got divorced.  BTW, where does Dumpster boy take a dump?


Universities have 24 hour open buildings (libraries, gyms, computer labs, commuter lounges) and you can find toilets, water fountains, showers etc. I'm sure there is even a 24 hour starbucks within walking distance. Also, there are dining halls for prepared food which are in theory discounted for students and faculty.

That's the problem with his experiment. It's only comfortable because the university provides all the facilities he's using. The dumpster is actually irrelevant in the equation. Basically the "experiment" is does a University provide all necessary facilities as "public" (aka, if you're a student or faculty) to live. Well, of course.
 
2014-05-03 04:16:11 PM
When I travel around the county, I sometimes keep myself occupied by looking out the window and sizing up various unintended shelters. Of course you want protection from the elements, but you also need a clear view of the perimeter so you'll be better able to defend your position. Bridges often satisfy these requirements.


This sort of trivia will be handy when revolution comes. Not only will I know where to seek cover, I'll also know likely places that I can find other denizens who are well provisioned and dry, but not as concerned with site security.

This guy's a real winner.  I also liked his casual blowing off of the whole 'she saw some texts she didn't like' thing.  His mean ol' wife got upset with him for showing his dingus to someone - what a nagging harpy!

I had to run to the back office to keep from insulting a client (openly gay), after he walked in wearing an arrangement of clothes even more ridiculously out of kilter than that, and I could NOT stifle my laughter.  The kicker was the Ed Grimley hairdo.

So, let's call that myth busted.

My husband is addicted to blogs/sites that feature container homes and other types of repurposing for living. It's a bit of a bucket list item for him to design something we could actually build and make a proper home out of. I have tons of respect for people who figure these things out for themselves. Truly, a talent.

Living in a dumpster just because? Not so sure I can wrap my arms around that one.  ;-)

Nothing wrong with socialism. It's fine for some things, other things not so much. But what I do have a problem with is when people rely on socialism and somehow claim rugged individualism. The only spectacular thing this guy is doing is pretending like he's somehow eco-friendly and living off 1% the energy, water, etc. Because he's using all the university facilities. It's asinine. He's "fully committed" to using more than his fair share. Only difference is the university funds are paying for his electric, water, heating, etc.

The pic I posted, if you gis 'small dwellings' there's a caption (and the only reason I recall it being on Fark) that says he builds them out $200 worth of materials.  There are also an array of really cool pics of small dwellings as well until I found this one that jogged my memory.

Hm.

So, it's bad to claim to be individualistic when you are the beneficiary of collectivism?  You also have to acknowledge that others are supporting you?

Wow, you must really not want American to ever be socialist.  We're all rugged individuals, even when we aren't.  That's kinda our thing.
