Man digs basement using model diggers

25 posts in this topic

A Canadian man has spent the last 15 years digging out his basement using model construction vehicles.

A Canadian guy named Joe has been digging out the basement of his house using nothing but radio-controlled scale model construction equipment. . . since 1997. Yes, you read that right — he's been digging out his basement for 15 years — with nothing but little R/C tractors, diggers and even a miniature rock crusher! Amazing.

Nah.... I get this. I was a commercial and residential painter for a few years. It could be hard work at times but mostly it was pretty repetitious and almost soothing. The mind on autopilot and you could spend your days dreaming while your hands were busy :yes:

But why would anyone want to do this? Amazing... I suppose 'just because he could' is the answer!

Maybe, but I think he did it because he found it to be a relaxing hobby. It would appeal to a person with a meticulous nature and it would give the satisfaction of accomplishing something unique.

Relaxing? ROFL. How could this be relaxing? Any psychologist would deem this guy imbalanced; but, having said that, it's an interesting case. What did he do with all the dirt? In such small amounts, I suppose he probably just put it out the window!? :wacko:

It's not so far fetched. Some people relax by painting or sculpting or even writing. This guy took working models and used them as his brush/pen...For some people the extreme discipline of this would have been very fulfilling and relaxing :) Hell, he may have even been stoned when he did it - you never know :w00t:

Well, good for him. This is a personal experience that will not make sense to everyone but it sounds like it makes sense to the guy who did this, so if that made him feel good or like he accomplished something worthwhile and if it made him feel good about himself, then good on him!
