I used to come on here a lot when the board was first created. What ever happened to the guy with the bunker? What ever happened to the guy with all of the imitation crab meat?
I think the bunker dude posted a couple days ago in the "current projects" thread, you might have a looksee.
imitation crammeet-anon never delivered and he just disappeared.
bonus: college-stairwell-dwelling-anon got shot on the roof of his uni by miami pd
The bunker guy's diesel generators were shipped from Germany last week.
The miami pd started this job, and I'm going to finish it.

I was thinking about that guy last halloween when I was watching Creepshow with the monster under the stairwell. I couldnt remember where I had actually seen it.
Im really really fuzzy on the details, but I remember a guy coming in and talking about living in an old room under a stairwell in a university.
He posted a bunch of pics and it was old tile/building material and other junk that looked like hadnt been touched for 50 years.
I think I remember him saying he wanted to throw away some stuff and build an actual somewhat permanent dwelling , while everyone here was saying to be as nomadic and ready to book it as you can. Lots of people saying he would get caught real fast and shit.
Then time went on and the thread died, then some time later out of the blue someone posted a news story about a guy getting cornered by the police on top of the uni.
Does anyone else have an archive or remember it more clearly than I?
I dont even remember if he was a student or not.
Diy is one of the worst boards with serious conversation to lurk besides /mu/. There's some solid info, funny moments, and interesting stuff, but it's mostly an autistic pissing contest. Seriously, these guys argue about what saw is best. You know the best saw for a job is? One that'll cut as cleanly as easily as you need at a price you can afford. You don't need some $4000 Japanese pull saw hand crafted by some mountain man who mines his own ore all he way to shaping the teeth by rubbing it between his butt cheeks to cut a straight line. I mean, if you can afford it, you like it, and it benefits you then that's awesome, do what you want to do, but why start an argument with a guy who can only afford a $50 dovetail saw and is getting good results with it?
/diy/ isnt THAT combative, unless you post something beaten to death or something that reveals you are 15 years old (like the racing stripes on the escort thread).
Hell, even the threads that turn into a pissing match there are still outliers that do help out
The issue is the culture, a majority of posters act like they know everything on any given subject and that everyone else should have the same knowledge base, while talking to people as if they know nothing.
Sadly no, but he put a LOT of time and money into it, and it was like a 3 year old car.
It was the biggest shit show I have ever seen on this board. People saying it was great vs people saying he ruined his car.
Hopefully someone else has pics, its been quite a while ago though
The original post was about replacing the back windshield with metal and a tank hatch.
Also it was a Scion not a Hyundai
Ton of other pics on other websites, guy posted it everywhere it seems
> the biggest shit show I have ever seen on this board
You must not come here that often.
>Perpetual motion with magnets everyday nigghu
I mean, he did ruin a car, but it was a Hyundai to start with. You cant brake it if it's broke
It was a time when this board was a lot less popular, and was genuinely slow.
The thread stayed up a stupid long time and there was some serious venom being thrown back and forth.
It felt like the recent Delivery Drone 2 thread, but it just never felt like it would end.
/diy/ is pretty good. People act like sarcastic asses a lot, but it's still informative, and hilarious.
I use /mu/ too, and yeah it's a meme fest. But a few of the general threads are great, and it's all fun.
Can't expect much more from 4chan.

Says you. Im gonna cut some wood so fine your mom is gonna be sucking my morning wood after and you can't do anything about it and you know why? Because your $50 will break when coming into contact with my dick.
