Serbian Man Has Lived Inside Grave For 15 Years

Is the world of the living really any better than the world of the dead? The Daily Mail writes:

A homeless man has told how he began sleeping with the dead when he moved into a cemetery 15 years ago. Bratislav Stojanovic, 43, has shared the burial plot with the ashes of a a family who died out more than 100 years ago in Nis, Serbia. The family who owned the tomb is unknown as the names have eroded from the gravestone.

Mr. Stojanovic, who has never had a regular job, lost his home in town after running up debts. He moved into the grave and now spends his time foraging in the out-of-use cemetery for candles.

Mr. Stojanovic said that living with the dead isn’t as scary as some might think: “I was afraid in the beginning, but I got used to it in time. Now I am more afraid of the living than of the dead.”

    Some filthy rich people never had “regular jobs” and they are dead inside.

  3. Bringing in the dead. 🙂 That’s all I can say after reading this.
