Wins lawsuit. Immediately spends settlement on more porn. Needs to live at parents house again because he has no rent money.

It’s the cycle of life.

Shouldn’t the headline read “Man, 40, unaware that there is an internet.”

12 boxes of porn magazines

That’s a lot of articles to read.

It’s the internet age. What porn has an estimated value of $29K?

“which included titles such as Frisky Business and Big Bad Grannys.

So… I assume that’s something special?

Who estimated it?

“… which he estimates is worth $29,000.”

Ah, I see.

“I did you a big favor by getting rid of all this stuff.”

How’s that working out for you?

Parents, don’t snoop through your adult children’s stuff if they end up living with you. Seriously. Do you want to know just what your kids are into? No, you really don’t. Help them get back on their feet and get them back out of your house.

And adult kids, a digital porn library is far more private, portable, and replaceable.

My thought exactly, I haven’t spent $29,000 on porn since 1999!

Ok I confess, it wasn’t really porn, I didn’t want my parents to dump my collection of comic books with many rare first editions so I wrapped each one in a porn cover as I figured they would think that stuff was worthwhile.

That stock photo is a bit of Philadelphia history.

Dude with 12 boxes of porn was obviously a collector.

Parents, eh? Can’t live without 'em, can’t live with 'em.

(Bet the Dad claimed he was taking them to the dump, but diverted to the garden shed while Mum was not looking.)

There needs to be a porn parody (porcumentary?) made out of this story. They could title it something like The Bone Collector or National Treasure 4: The Junk in the Trunk.

I am feeling for his parents.

Edit: To be perfectly clear - feelings about collecting pornography aside - it’s the collector’s messed-up priorities and his apparent inability to have a healthy, constructive relationship with the people he should be closest to that I find distressing. His parents have got to be wondering how they could have guided him more wisely when he was younger.

If his parents dumped twelve boxes of it all in the one nearby hedge, it’s probably going to be pretty easy to find.

That may be true…I was also thinking about this in legal terms. I believe that the simple intentional tort of destruction of personal property would carry the day here.
