Let's all really be honest here. This is less about the [censored] roommate and that the rest of us are jealous that WE don't have lathes in our living rooms.
awesome picture btw, this whole thing is hilarious

Re: Roommate from Hell

I'm considering heading to IKEA to get a bandsaw for the front room.

Worst thing I've done in a college apt common area is leave a computer I was building on the kitchen table for 1 month. My roomates bitched and I finished it. Curious about similar transgressions. Any other closet lathers?

Oh wow.

So often threads like this come of nothing.

And then you get one with a picture.

And it's just beautiful.

I'm crying with laughter right now.

I guess you didn't see the beer fridge or the plasma TV that shows Howard Stern on Demand.

Buy a big salami, or cheese log, and everytime you guys want some use the lathe to slice a little off. Meat and Cheese always tastes better when you take some off while its spinning at a million RPMs.
Do this and post a vid or at least a pic.

This whole thread is a Seinfeld/Friends-esque episode waiting to happen. Salami is a nice touch.

Ditto. Re-reading the OP makes it even funnier, as the OP non-chalantly lists the lathe in a laundry list of grievances.

Notice it's placement between 2 relatively typical complaints:

Quote:
-He is extremely loud and annoying during the day and early evening, but once he goes to sleep, he expects us all to be quiet and gets pissed if we're making noise or watching TV in the living room.
-He bought a lathe, and without asking anybody, placed it in the living room. When told that's not going to fly, he said he already bought it and has nowhere else to put it.
-He totally disrespects me because I don't have a 'real' job and I just sit at home and play poker for money. Of course I make 20x as much as him doing this and I sense jealousy there.

Re: Roommate from Hell

One of my roomates just came and told me that he is tired of having to get all the money together to pay for the electricity so he just cancelled it and we have less than a day before the power gets shut off in our house to call and get a new person on the bill. So that was pretty cool and not totally douchy at all.

He would not treat you like that if you had a lathe.

Good luck finding a bandsaw at Ikea.

Also, can someone come up with some creative, lathe-related titles for the OP? This thread is classic.

Re: Roommate from Hell

Seriously. I'm losing it. I LITTERARLY had tears forming I was laughing so hard at this thread. My kids are in bed and my 12-year-old son came up to my little office and (I SWEAR ON ALL THAT IS HOLY AND GOOD), this is an exact transcript of the conversation..

Son: Dad, are you ok?
Me: PPFDDUIOSJSHTSH!&*&! (I can't really talk because I'm laughing).
Son: (seeing picture on thread) what is that? a lathe? (the kid is scary smart and an unbelievable memory to boot)
Me: JFDLzzz#ddssfsstJ*! (I think I basically fell out of my chair at this point)
Me: (after I calm down), "yeah, it's a lathe, and it's this really silly thread I couldn't even begin to explain why I think it's so funny"
Son: Dad, you're really weird.

Yes, this is key. If the thread were titled "Lathe in my living room" it would lose a lot of its awesomeness.

Re: Roommate from Hell

eat the cancellation fees if reasonable. split among 3 people (4 if the other guy really wants to live with you 3) it shouldnt be too bad right? whats a few bets for some peace of mind.

Re: Roommate from Hell

WTF is everyone doing talking all nice? Forget paying a cancellation fee. There are three of you and only 1 of him. You guys go full metal jacket on his a$$ and make him WANT to leave... infact make him beg to leave. You out number him 3 to 1... come on now you're a poker player. Them be some good odds.

Re: Roommate from Hell

I had no idea what a lathe was (had to look it up on wikipedia), but this thread is priceless.

How about making it a horrible expirience for him to be in the house, thus making him want to leave? Just treat him like [censored], show no respect for this things, hope he moves out
