Beats living in van down by the river. He lived in an abandoned Circuit City on East Independence Blvd, I bought my very first car stereo amplifier there in high school (I had a car that went BOOOM BOOOM BOOOM. Yeah, I was seriously cool. Fear the Nissan Pulsar NX) . He regularly stole from the adjacent Toys R Us. Among the items found:
Baby food jars and Beano; a bicycle; posters of Spiderman, Superman and a Van Gogh print; toy models including one of Star War's Yoda; a basketball net; a portable DVD player and films including "Spider-Man 2," "Matchstick Men" and "40 days and 40 Nights;" a CATS map of local bus routes; a portable toilet; a fire extinguisher and a smoke detector.
This man was living my childhood fantasy, unfettered access to a toy store.

Bart: Inside every hardened criminal beats the heart of a ten-year-old boy.
Lisa: And vice-versa.
