Woman Allergic to World
A woman in Pennsylvania, who is allergic to everything, built a homemade, chemical free "bubble" in her backyard, complete with toilet, TV, reading materials, etc. The "bubble was made of sheets of plastic, scrap wood and other discarded items. She spent 10 hours daily inside the bubble to escape allergens. Her neighbors complained that the bubble was unsightly, she didn't obtain a building permit, was stealing electricity, the bubble was dangerous, and, most importantly, was lowering their property values. When approached about these complaints by the homeowners association she told them to fuck off. After considering the matter, the city informed her she would be required to tear down the bubble. So it goes.
