    Good for him, I suppose, but he appears to be mentally ill. A bit manic, perhaps.

    I agree with the first comment. This guy is definitely mentally unwell. Not because of what he’s doing, but because of the way he acts and what he says.

  • scottso68

    people may say he is “delusional” or metaly unbalanced” and this may be somewhat true, but when sh*t goes south (world events) ..he is gonna be way ahead of most folks, and he,ll be the one surviving and laughing last!!

  • Patrick

    ha ha , I like him and don’t think he is mentally ill at all, creative would discribe him better 🙂

  • Kriss

    The narrower your mind is, the more people will appear strange. To me this guy comes off more sane than most people.

  • Guest

    at least he is happy

    Just look at this stupid nerd. He decided to live like any other homeless person on this planet and for him it’s an “apocalypse simulation”. Too much of apocalypse/zombie movies or even video games was obviously bad for his brains.

    Y is it that when someone is different from the norm, people assume that you are mentally ill?

    • goldensilence

      Because the “norm” are mentally ill

    Lol, hope the property owner doesn’t see this doc.

    I couldn’t get it to play.

    I finally got it to play. Was surprised by how short this was. Is entirely shot with a handheld, but gets the job done.
    What a sweet, little man. I wish him all the best and hope he doesn’t get evicted.
    I’m not convinced that he’s “crazy”. He is able to live his life as he chooses to; how many of us are just paying our bills and waiting to die? Sane and miserable.

  • stebunn

    This is a nice little character-study of an interesting character.
    Unfortunately, he is a lot more optimistic about “the end of the world” than I am.

  • Oliver

    I wish this documentary was wayyyy longer. Too good and interesting to be this short.

  • ghost

    that guy was adorable!

  • DaveonMackey

    I don’t see anything wrong with him, he needs a partner as in life partner or wife or spouse or whatever he is down with.

  • Guest

    I think he has ADHD… severe. But what a lovely life philosophy.

  • louise

    i like this guy …why not …at least hes happy 🙂
