The philosopher(name escapes me). who is responsible for that famous quote would have to rethink that thought if he were able to see this picture/situation. As for me; all I can say is, wow! That is one stubborn/and or greedy dude.

The copy to go with the story was very brief, here it is . . . in it’s entirety. I can only laugh looking at this picture:
Developers have turned a house into an island in China after the owner refused to move out. The villa now stands alone in a 30ft deep man-made pit in Chongqing city, reports Jinbao Daily.
The Chongqing Zhengsheng Real Estate Company wants to turn the area into a £40m ‘Broadway’ square, including apartments and a shopping mall.
But the owner of the villa says he won’t move out unless the company pays his price – the equivalent of £1.3 million.
“The villa owner refuses to move, so the real-estate developer has had to dig out all around it to force him to,” says a saleswoman at Weilian Real Estate Sales Company.
“He wants 20 million yuan, or he’ll stay till the end of the world.”
This Blog’s main focus is Landscape Design so normally we would discuss how he is going to landscape his little plot. Forget that, how in the hell does he get in and out of there, and surely he’s not living in there . . . is he?
We could go on and on, forget about the vegetable patch . . . where does he park?
Now that the developer has completely engulfed him is his property actually worth anything? I mean other than the developer who’s going to buy it? The poor fella, what is he going to do?
Guy says he’s staying until the end of the World, well that may be, but how’s he gonna go shopping-that 1st step is a doozy. I remember seeing the picture of the little house in Atlantic City surrounded by a large casino, and a few images with roads going around the house or a parking lot, but this takes the fried dumpling.
Finally; what happens when it rains(the remaining Earth will no doubt give way), surely someone has pointed this out . . the end of the World is going to come sooner than later for this fella.
I’ve been to Chongqing and without a doubt the absolute hottest food I have EVER put to my lips. I mean unbelievable . . . WOW! The Hot-Pot dishes are beyond any human description I can give. I’ll say this . . . the food was so hot you could literally smell the heat, made most Mexican dishes I’ve had seem like a bowl of Sherbert.
