Meijimack, look at the woman in the audience, sitting there really freaked out. Sorry that was my reaction too. Quit Googling me. Shoulda stuck to engineering, or watching Judge Judy maybe!

This is actually very cool! if he is smart, he can make that a tourist attraction! I would personally pay to see a 40s house with all of its glory and atmosphere! That is so cool!

Someone please send this man a letter from Vault-Tec!
The comment he made about having 120+ friends on social media but not even being able to talk to your next door neighbor is spot on truth. My neighbors are loud idiots!

Lucky for him that he's living in 1946, if it was sometime earlier in the 40s, He should've eat spam for 3 meals a day. Probably the fish and chips (but the fish is replaced to spam thanks to U-boats) once every week or two.

This guy has more sense than I expected. He seems to be totally normal, just likes to live differently. He's doing it for fun. I'm a nostalgia junkie myself, so i can relate.

"The view from this window hasn't changed in a thousand years." Dude, just because you put a lot of shit from the 40's in your house doesn't mean i'll believe your house is a thousand years old.

Some people are a natural born money maker. No matter how silly the thing they do, they are able to generate income. Not saying this gentleman is trying to monetize his effort, but it seems this idea will be popular and he some how will make money handsomely. On the opposite side, some are natural money spender. No matter what they do, they will never make enough to afford their living style, even that style is as simple as having 3 meals a day and a shelter.
