The housing shortage has forced many working class people to live in miniature houses or appartments. Now even these have become unaffordable, leaving the working class the only option of living in tents. The result has been a tent shortage, forcing many to live in miniature tents.

If that's his helmet, I can see why he couldn't stay on his bike!

Russ was beginning to think the intense head trip he was sold wasn't quite what he had in mind.

It's a small world, if you choose to camp with your head, and think that you are taking the High Ground, about what's right and wrong?

Another recipient of the Darwin award.

He tried (and failed) to reinvent camping for bikers. Unfortunately he suffocat during the night of the first trial run.

He is with Hell's angles now.

HD's textile science department have to rethink after their new tent fabric shrinks in an overnight rain shower.

Bought a 'bargain' 6-berth tent on eBay from a chap named Gulliver.

I complained and was told to take it up with the Mayor of Lilliput.

It looked bigger in the photo on eBay .

And when it turned up in the post he just assumed it would get bigger once it was out of that tiny pack.

Imagine how freaked he was while assembling that in the middle of an acid trip.

Army Antz, The Making of the Movie

06/09/2018 6:06 PM

See "Army Antz", The Making of the Movie Trailer Tonight at Nine

Here is a candid, "Making of the Movie" shot of a dedicated cameraman preparing to meet the extreme challenges of filming the soon-to-be-released, National Geographic, high definition, live, on-location, version of "Army Antz." Hear how painfully tight velcro neck, waist, wrist, and ankle closures were used to seal up the leather suit and lexan goggles. Watch the entire video trailer tonight at nine to see the new nano-tech HD camera trolley in use outside of the "mound entrance" sunlight control tent. Also, be one of the first to watch the telephoto HD shots being made of the forest march from the revolutionary new "hummingbird hover drones". Hear the cadence and chatter of individual marching antz from the innovative "owl drone" low flight noise, dual curved DVD, "owl eyes" parallax enabled, noise canceling, articulated parabolic microphone pair.

Or the interior of Snoopy's doghouse?

Speaking of unknown interiors.. I would sure like to know what's in the Taj Mahal's basement.?!

Any speculation welcome.
