A Dutch philosopher is planning to live for a week in a barrel. Eric Hoekstra wants to follow the example of the ancient Greek philosopher Diogenes, reports GVA.

Mr Hoekstra says he wants to prove that man doesnt need very much in order to be happy.

“Above all I want to bring the philosophy of the old Greeks back into the light,” he said.

He will live in a 6ft wine barrel during a Philosophy Week of at Leeuwarden University from March 30 to April 7, apart from the occasional toilet break.

The close view is incredible enough but scroll down for the long shot. The people in the truck should head for Las Vegas after they change their shorts because they have to be some of the luckiest people in the world.

The pictures were posted by a San Diego radio station but there is no indication of where they were taken.
