    I remember reading a very similar story of someone living in a wall last year some time. . .oh wait - they opened the wall and found remains of some guy who they'd thought had gone missing. Nevermind! :D

    I really could have done without reading that!
  13. After WWII, a Ukranian, Pavel Navrotsky who hid in the chicken coop in his backyard for 41 years.

    He first went into hiding in 1944, when the Russians recaptured the Ukraine from the Germans. Fearing he would be punished for not fighting in the Red army. He asked his wife to hide him in the chicken coop...threatening to kill her if she told anyone. She brought him food and water every day, until she passed away and he was forced to emerge in 1985. In his 41 years in the coop he emerged only once, and dressed in his wife's clothing to prevent detection.

    This guy is a light weight in comparison. :D
