Doesn't solve the food issue. The water would just keep him from dying of dehydration. Though it could be argued that he simply didn't eat for two weeks and went back to however it is he "eats" when he gets home. The guy is getting energy somehow and I doubt its photosynthesis.

Food isn't a problem - you can survive for weeks without it, and if he fed up well before starting this fraud then he would probably get through a couple of weeks pretty easily.

However, since he's been under constant scruteny, those are exactly the kind of things that they'd be looking for.

They evidently failed, given that he's still alive.

as my friend put it when he read this story first "he definitely has something up his sleeve, probably a ham sandwich"

I agree with sc, put him in a glass box for a couple of months constantly monitored and see what happens.

Okay so gurgling water sustains him for two weeks? Doubtful but okay. How does he hide from going to the bathroom?

Ah, but in the first few days his body would continue to expel fecal matter as his system cleared. It could take a week to expel everything from his stomach and system.

Good catch.

Were you already familiar with ways of disposing of shit, or did you just start to think about it when you read this thread? :lol:
