Yeah, I have known at least 2 hoarders who were not obviously deranged, or who at least held down jobs and wouldn't seem deranged if you had only a superficial relationship w/ them (going to their homes was something of a shock).

I watched Hoarders for the first time today.  My naive, rainbow-colored belief that hoarders are tidy (even when their houses are filthy, as perforce they must be) was shattered.

I liked the skunk in the garage full of dead cats.

My post was referring to last week's Intervention, I should have made that more clear.


Sometimes I really hate those people.

Addicts are hard to love.  They are so dishonest, untrustworthy, and manipulative, they can almost seem a different species.

Hoarders strike me as assholes, too (I just watched a second episode; I'm creepily fascinated).

I see hoarders as more pathetic than a-holes, unless they are stealing stuff from family and friends to put on top of their hoard piles.

How is it that we have all these landfills and all these hoarders and we can't let one problem take care of the other?

Yes, they are pathetic.  Pathetic assholes.  (I see glimmers of hoarderdom in myself, so I'm allowed to be this harsh.)

Americans create more waste than all the hoarders and landfills together can hold.

We need an economy based on something other than growth.

I'm not too keen on this new economy.

Yes. A real waste-based economy. Garbage could become our new currency.

Hoarders is on right now and it's on my TV.  The scariest thing about that is that I know Mike and I are watching the same thing right now.




They're talking about the woman's legs not being amputated, which is... good?
