OldManDownDRoad: Bad_Seed: North Carolina? Wouldn't that technically make him a 'hill-billy', rather than a 'mountain man'?

Please. We prefer "Alto-American."

Watch out for this guy. He's curiously strong.

Skarekrough: He can live in a lean-to if he wants.

But if he wants to take money from people to teach them then he's involved in the commerce system which is regulated by the government.


It is sorry. Not everything needs to be regulated. All the apologists for the county in here are why kids can't have a lemon aid stand without cops showing up asking for a permit.

/live and let live, ffs

mortimer_ford: Please, explain to me the meaning of this novel vulgarity.

I believe it is a coarse variant of the once-common "snowbird".

Ladies and Gentlemen, meet Mr. Eustace Conway IV, subject of Ms. Elizabeth Gilbert's book "The Last American Man".  It's an amazing book. Gilbert's the same chic that wrote "Eat, Pray, Love".

Conway's been eating road kill since he was a kid. He's not a self-styled "mountain man" ... he is a mountain man. He's also a SUPER a-hole. I can't believe people still go to his nature school. When this case finally makes it way to court, the transcript is going to be HILARIOUS. Mark my words.

dittybopper: Ever try to sue the fire department for not responding fast enough? Guess what? They aren't legally responsible, just like the police aren't legally responsible if you get killed, raped, or injured, even if you warned them specifically that there was a high probability it would happen.

Gifted Many Few: Damn Hills Have Eyes people. I guess the lampshades made of hiker's skin are not up to the fire code.

Its not so much that they are made from hiker's skin, its the human fat lamps that's the issue

earthworm2.0: drjekel_mrhyde: More like the government don't want to get sued if some asshat dies in hut collapse

Right, so, private property is the responsibility of the government.

It's gotten so bad that the government forces restaurants to follow sanitation rules. They make bus companies have only licensed drivers. Nightclubs have occupancy limits. Where does the nanny state end?

"This is supposed to be the land of the free. Government is supposed to help people, protect their individual liberties and freedom -- that's not what's happening here,"

He sounds like one of those racist, tea party, anti-government types looking for his Somalian utopia that the progressives are always warning us about. If you look at the photo in the article you will see that he is a white male so the big government progressives are probably right.
