      This is cool and all but have you forgotten the government sanctions on all of your “off grid” tiny home living. #1 you cannot collect rainwater so your water unless you have a well they will shut you down. #2 you have to be hooked into the electric grid as sanctioned by government. Generators? Your own power ha please !#3 you cant live on any land without the govt sticking its$#%&!@*into it i mean the govt does not own it they just claim ownership. And you dont have a mortgage? Ohnoes! Better buy a real house so we can stick our$#%&!@*into that too! There is no way unless you do not have a soc sec number or are illegal to live this free. #facts

      So, is Bob Zahn an internet troll? You decide:

      In Internet slang, a troll (/ˈtroʊl/, /ˈtrɒl/) is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory,[1] extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response[2] or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion,[3] often for their own amusement.
