Man found living in underground bunker home in Buffalo
This guy must be a follower of zetatalk.

Associated Press

BUFFALO, N.Y. A city fire investigator says he found a man living in a well-equipped underground bunker.

James O'Neill, an investigator with the city fire marshal's office, said the man, a 47-year-old veteran, uses car batteries to light the 16-by-20-foot space, which is six feet underground. He cooks food in a hot pot.

The man said the bunker took two years to dig, O'Neill said.

The walls are covered with insulation and plastic tarps and the ceiling is made of wood and roofing material, said O'Neill, who discovered the home over the weekend while investigating a nearby fire. The man sleeps on a foam bed, O'Neill said.

"Some people would call him homeless, but he's a clean, well-spoken guy. When I spoke to him, he was reading a novel by Joseph Wambaugh," O'Neill told The Buffalo News.

The fire investigator declined to give the man's name or say where the bunker is located to protect the man's privacy. He said the man earns money doing occasional odd jobs.

"It's not the Marriott hotel by any means, but this man has made it comfortable down there," O'Neill said.

The man said he has been living in the bunker for about six years.

"He told me it's a peaceful and tranquil place to live," O'Neill said.

Pretty damn decent of the firefighter to not give out the guy's name or location. I wonder how long it'll be before some do-gooder decides to force the guy into some social program.

Why is it anytime someone says anything contrary to the woo-woos on this board that they immediately say you work for the government, lol.

If this is true, how can I sign up or fill out an application? I would love to get paid for having common sense ;)

It took six years for anyone to find him. Wonder how he hides the exterior?

It´s certainly quiet underground, and it should have quite a pleasant temperature if it's in cold weather but set in organic soil. Myself I could never do with the lack of natural light or with the complete certainty of those walls.

Wonder how he keeps the snow off the enterance or away from the entrance and it not give away his location?

He has to be constantly shoveling during winter or he could be covered quickly and be trapped.

Thats nothing..

I was digging out a spot for a fence post, about 20 years ago, and it fell in. It exposed a cavern, that seems to be endless.
Later I installed a water powered generator to give lights and ventilation. The main water fall dumps into a pool of crystal clear water. No person alive but me know the local..

EVERYONE ON EARTH CAN HAVE YOUR OWN HOME, WITHOUT BILLS, OR ASSHOLES BOTHERING YOU.

THERE IS A LOT OF LAND, A LOT OF NATIONAL FOREST AND A LOT OF MOUNTAIN PROPERTY.

YOU ONLY HAVE TO FIND A PRIVATE PLACE WHERE PEOPLE HARDLY EVER GO TO.

START DIGGING.

YOU NOW ONLY HAVE TO PUT A WATERPROOF ROOF ON YOUR UNDERGROUND HOME. YOU CAN ALSO JUST DIG UNDER A VERY LARGE ROCK WITHOUT MAKING IT FALL IN THE HOLE.

IT WILL STAY 56 DEGREE YEAR ROUND.

A SMALL STOVE WILL DO FOR COOKING AND HEAT.

ONLY USE THIS FOR SLEEPING. ALL OTHER ACTIVITY YOU CAN CARRY OUT SOMEPLACE ELSE SUCH AS GETTING WATER, BATHROOMS, FOOD, CLEANING.

i'm so offended...

I do like the idea of the post apocolyptic motif, though. I wonder if Martha Stewart has anything on it.
Well it seems so real I can see it
And it seems so real I can feel it
And it seems so real I can taste it
And it seems so real I can hear it
So why can't I touch it?
