I'll be a hermit, if anyone is still hiring
Where’s a hermit gonna go spend money?
Anywhere, after the years of employment. Though the real payment is years of solitude
I legitimately thought this was a screenshot from Skyrim for a second
Why did hermits ever go out of fashion?
They were replaced by [mechanical ones](https://www.mentalfloss.com/article/500916/short-lived-british-fashion-ornamental-hermits).
Nope, this is just skyrim on unreal 5
I imagined a bunch of depressed workers slagging around in a meh fashion...
so not really different?
So this is what inspired the band Spinal Tap...
A lot of gothic follies sprang up in the late 18th/ early 19th centuries as it was deeply ingrained into society that there was something shameful about giving and receiving charity. So in times of economic crisis, the wealthy would help the out of work locals by commissioning a nonsense building project, just to give them some money in an 'acceptable' way. Then they also became fashionable, and landowners who *didn't* give a shit about the peasants also built them.
Ireland has specific Famine Follies which are the same idea; a form of charity towards the people dying in the Potato Famine. But instead of just giving them money, they'd commission them to make roads that don't connect places, bridges in the middle of fields, etc. Really fascinating stuff.

Wait, you mean I could've been getting paid for all of this??
Is this Mink Hollow?
Why hire the hermit? For some kind of faulty back story.
I would love to be someone's eccentric garden hermit.
Looks like runescape
