And so on.  Wow.  That is a case of beer a day for 8 years.

Wonder what if the people who lived their were alcoholics.
Wonder why anyone would want to do that.
Wonder what if there was a deal like "Bring an empty can of beer and get a full can for free". One could get 70000 cans for free. Funny.
This makes me wonder...

Kinda puts a new spin on "free as in beer", doesn't it?

Well I thought the term "free as in beer" was used for things which were too good to be true. I would put this as too bad to be true. But the fact that it is true(because it's in the news, with picture) I would say yes it does.
This link fits perfectly with the "term".

I thought this was the funniest thing I have ever heard. If someone wants to believe that they will get something for free from this company then, ummm, i don't know what to say. On second thought I always believed that this company supports "open source", or i should say "open piracy", community. Funny !?!?!?
And also, what kind of "free" software is this where you can't change source code or do any kind of testing????
World is full of surprises but this ain't one. HA.

This one is just funny, I've seen much worse in foreclosures.

Like the one with the green pool. When we drained the pool, there was a car in it (50's Olds, IIRC).

There are many people (some of whom are well-educated and seem otherwise normal) who have odd collections in their house. There are companies who specialize in cleaning them up, and they have a few hair-raising stories (which I won't repeat, but they were recently making the rounds on the local LA news, involving rats, bodily fluids and such). Personally, I recall (in the early 80's) often seeing a very elderly lady in a laundromat, I was always kind of worried she would croak. Eventually I read about her in the paper. She owned a house that was full floor-to-ceiling with newspapers and magazines, would sleep on a mattress in the driveway, except when it was cold and she would go to the laundromat. The mental health authorities evaluated her, and determined she was, indeed, not insane and did not need a conservator to take over.

There was a series on BBC in 2003, 'A Life of Grime':
