You've heard of homeless people living in a cardboard box. Dr. Jeff Wilson lives in a dumpster. He's a professor at Huston-Tillotson University in Austin, Texas. Dr. Wilson sold off most of his possessions, and lives in a dumpster about 1/100th the size of a typical American home. Why would a gainfully employed man with a PHD live in a dumpster? teach about sustainable living. His girlfriend told the Associated Press, "There's no self help manual for how to date a guy living in a dumpster."
