30-Year-Old Man Sued By Parents Into Moving Out And Taking Potentially Many Samurai Swords With Him

I 100% thought that this was Martin Starr, he of Freaks And Geeks and Silicon Valley fame.

(CNN)A 30-year-old man didn't get the message that it was time to move out of his parents' home, even after they left him five notices and an offer of cash to help find new digs. 
The New York family drama eventually rolled into the court system, where a judge on Tuesday ruled in the parents' favor and ordered Michael Rotondo to leave after having a room for eight years. 
But Rotondo contends he is owed a six-month notice.

I've got to hand it to this fella. He has no shame, which is something that I'm actually kind of envious of. If I were living at home at the age of 30, not only would I be doing everything in my power to change the situation, I'd be doing everything I could to not draw attention to the fact that I still lived at home.

This guy stood his ground so hard into staying at home that he is having to withstand the attention that comes from a court case AND national media attention, and STILL argues that he has been wronged. Dude is a champ (not in the traditional sense of course).

He claimed in court that he didn't want to live at home. Really? Then maybe leave and don't wind up in court.

His parents actually gave him a two-week notice and a list of things for him to do to ease the transition out of the house. Number 2 on their list is my absolute favorite:
2) Sell the other things you have that have any significant value, (e.g. stereo, some tools etc.). This is especially true for any weapons you may have. You need the money and will have no place for the stuff.
You know this dude has a lot of weapons if they specifically mention weapons. It's also safe to assume that we're not talking guns here. We're talking samurai swords, nunchucks, and throwing stars maybe even his hands (which some people get registered as weapons. HI-YA!!!).

Still, this guy is going to need some help now that he has been semi-involuntaily thrust into the real world. I have an idea. He seems like he's in the Mountain Dew prime demographic (I can only assume his room at home was littered with their cans/bottles), so I'm thinking a sponsorship and maybe a spokesperson job. Think about it.

The biggest thing I'm wondering about in relation to this story is this:

My current lease ends at the end of July and I hear Syracuse is beautiful in the summer and now that there's some room in the ol' homestead now that these people have sued they're own kid out of the house, are they looking for tenants?

Sup?
