  1. Rats, snakes and drones can get in your house through the sewer lines. But they didn't mention that, it would be educating you, bad bad

  2. The nasty people who lived in that house should be ASHAMED. It's really amazing how I've been dreaming of living in a nice home for years and trying to save enough money to buy a home, and yet these nasty people had a big beautiful house and they trashed it lived in FILTH. Those people should be ashamed, there are plenty of people like myself who would have been grateful to live in that house and would have TAKEN CARE OF IT AND LIVED CLEAN.
