Serbian man lives in a tomb for 15 years

A Serbian man who lost his house due to debts has since made a grave in a cemetery his new home.

43-year-old former construction worker Bratislav Stojanovic claims that the grave is more comfortable than living homeless on the streets. With only two square yards of space and a one yard high ceiling the tomb isn't exactly spacious, but during the bitter cold of the Siberian winter it does offer shelter and warmth. Inside the grave Stojanovic has his possessions strewn across the floor and uses candles he finds in the cemetery to see what he's doing when it's dark.

While most of us might find spending even one night in a graveyard to be terrifying, Stojanovic maintains that he's used to it. "I was afraid in the beginning, but I got used to it in time," he says. "It doesn't frighten me to sleep in a grave. The dead are dead. I'm more frightened of being hungry."

"Bratislav Stojanovic, a homeless man, walks out of a tomb where he lives in southern Serbian town of Nis February 9, 2013."

seeder, what your Mother did showed compassion and kindness. This man's choice not to re-join society and behave in a "normal" way only goes to show that he had issues or problems that went unresolved. I am not saying that we, those paying taxes and living life in the "normal" way should bolster and uphold those who don't, only that we should try to show comappsion and understanding and help were it is needed.

take a looky at this. HOMELESS MUSTARD! But boys and girls he does say the F word... (its called expressing a point strongly) made my sisters cry that did... BUT read his story, and note he finishes with Where do you see yourself in five, ten years from now? "I’d really just love to be able to continue to do this. I know I’m not going to be a Justin Beiber or Justin Timberlake or Lady Gaga, but I’d just like to be able to do this to where I don’t have to do anything else. I want to be recording, touring, maybe in a relationship with a couple of dogs.... [More]

I hope he was never awoken by a necrophilia.

If i was homeless I would rather live on the street then in a graveyard. I'd feel that i was being jinxed to my own death.

I would rather sleep next to the dead than many of the living.
