Tonight at a very questionable establishment I came to know a man who is a squatter. I don't mean to imply that he is an athlete or someone who pisses unusually, he's just sort of like a resourceful hobo type, for the sake of clarification. He had a seemingly palsied face and a positive demeanor. He also had backpatches, so I assume he has some sewing skills.

Have any of you been squatters previously? Do you have any amusing tales?

I've known some squatters. Many of them are anarchists trying to put theory into practice. I'm sure if there are any posters here from Europe they can tell you lots of stories about squatters, many European nations have large squatter movements that are well organized and have done some pretty amazing things.

While I have never squatted anywhere--be it a toilet or otherwise--the most essential question remains: how do they shave properly?

But then I do imagine most contemporary anarchists have an inclination towards the scruffy sides of things. However, surely when their women go down to perform, they like something less Bushmen and more Brazilian?

I did live out of my car for a bit once, which is likely the closest I'll come to modern prefab housing for a while. I managed to do it fairly luxuriously due to the ease of exploiting the infrastructure of things like college campuses. In those days I surely dressed better.

Upon further reflection, this is more ideally suited for the Fine Living forum. My mistake, gents! Any moderators inclined to whisk Mario to another world may feel free to do so.

I do have messianic tendencies (sometimes I bleed uncontrollably without clear cause).

I'd suggest cranberries for the urinary tract, but like many ersatz squatting "shamans", I can't claim it works.

Being a UT Austin alumnus, I've often marveled at how accomodating a large university campus can be. They're truly underrated as the go-to place for the resourceful hobo: there are plenty of couches, free food everywhere, there was even a gym with shower facilities in the football stadium (RLM for any other Longhorns on here), and if you're so inclined, tons of things to steal.

A friend of a friend once drank shamanic herbs that he had ordered from the back of some sort of magazine. I believe they may have been mixed with Kool-Aid, though I cannot verify the flavor. Apparently they just have him a headache. I wouldn't be surprised if that kid's a squatter now.

I squat when I take dumps on Margaret Thatcher's chest. It's a weekly thing.
