Hoarding: Buried alive

Postby lschafroth » Sat Jan 19, 2013 4:43 am

I was watching Hoarding: Buried Alive on DirecTV tonight. The guy had a house so full of stuff there was only 3 feet between the top of the piles and the ceiling. They found open place to stand and talk. He had a pile behind him. On the shelve behind him, pinned against the wall on its side was a Atari 800XL. :)

Wonder how many more beloved Atari items were buried in that home and thrown away... :(
