a handmade cave can be stable if you keep in mind to arch the walls and ceiling, and provide decent support pillars and-or beams, depending on the soil strata.

damn dude, that's crazy. that's cool that he was working so hard to have a decent shelter and educate himself.
It reminds me a bit of fraternity hazing, where the abuse is kicked down from cohort to cohort:

"I had to pay for a house so you have to pay for a house."

I grew up in Fairfax, this is exactly the response I'd expect. Shouldn't come as a surprise that suburbs of Washington DC are highly authoritarian and police-oriented. I think a lot of travelers come from there, actually. It kind of drives you to it.
this is also happening in california in parts where they have "tent cities." it's not just DC that's authoritarian.

That really sucks. That's sad. He made a little home and wasn't even bothering anybody and they destroyed it. Poor guy.

Some of you people seem mildly delusional haha. Maybe just MAYBE the guy shouldnt have dug a huge cave IN A PARK. If this dude dug a big ass hole in your back yard would you be cool with that? Should have found a better spot..it is a good idea.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $25.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $25.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $25.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $25.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
