I'd have to imagine they have a hefty tax unpaid tax bill.

interesting to read for sure. Reminds me of the Japanese soldiers that hid in the cliffs or whatever because they wouldn't surrender to US forces and still thought the war was going on YEARS later

I have to read the entire article, but just skimming through, that is crazy. I couldn't imagine being like 1 of 5 people in a region that is rough and having no one around for hundreds of miles for like 40 years.

Nuts. Can't wait to read the whole thing.

Fascinating article. thanks for posting Werner Herzog has a new documentary out "Happy People: A Year in the Taiga" which reminds me of this story




A documentary on the indigenous people living in Bakhtia, the heart of the Siberian Taiga; some 300 villagers whose daily routines have barely changed over the last century and live according to their own values and cultural traditions.

Summary: family isolates themselves for religious reason. When contact is reestablished with the outside world they choose to die for those same religious reasons.

Amazing. What's even more amazing is the resilience of the human body. I mean the one guy spent days in the wilderness barefoot.

lewis and clark told stories about some (Manadan?) indians that would routinely spend days in the snow on the great plains with just their clothes and a blanket as their only source of protection. kenny the kangaroo thinks about that sort of things when it seems like its too cold to even spend 3 minutes scraping ice off of the car.
