Packing It In

The Barrister @ Maggies Farm brings up The Collyer Brothers and says, "Get educated!"

Well..... okay.

Police and workmen removed 103 tons of garbage from the house... Items removed from the house included baby carriages, a doll carriage, rusted bicycles, old food, potato peelers, a collection of guns, glass chandeliers, bowling balls, camera equipment, the folding top of a horse-drawn carriage, a sawhorse, 3 dressmaking dummies, painted portraits, pinup girl photos, plaster busts, Mrs. Collyer's hope chests, rusty bed springs, the kerosene stove, a child's chair (the brothers were lifelong bachelors and childless), more than 25,000 books (including thousands about medicine and engineering and more than 2,500 on law), human organs pickled in jars, 8 live cats -- Collyer brothers - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Barrister is right. Fascinating.
