Man Trapped For Four Days In, I Ess You Not, Seven Foot Tall Mountain Of His "Own Feces and Jars of Urine"

As a pack-rat myself, I sometimes read stories like this and fear the future.

But while I keep things like four year old prescription receipts -- never know when I might want to re-file a four year old income tax return to claim a $60 deduction -- I definitely draw the line at human waste.

Unless it's somehow "special" or looks like a celebrity or something. Then, maybe, you keep it. Sometimes that shit can valuable.

But certainly he couldn't have had seven feet of special waste. My personal rule: You cannot hoarding more than one liter of your own filth.

n officer responded to Charles Ruoff's dilapidated home in Centerport around 3:30 a.m. after receiving an anonymous 911 call asking police to check up on the 64-year-old veteran who hadn't been seen in days.

As he explored the house, the cop heard Ruoff calling weakly from a second-floor bedroom where he had walled himself in with a mountain of his own filth. He said he had been trapped since Tuesday.

The Centerport Fire Department freed Ruoff using heavy rescue equipment.

Ruoff was taken to the Veterans Administration Hospital in Northport where he was treated for dehydration, hypothermia, bedsores and general weakness, Suffolk County Police Commissioner Richard Donner said.

An attending physician said he was also suffering from "accute stank."
