    Anyone notice that basement dweller seems to be mainly a American and Anglosphere thing?

    I noticed in American culture and such,living with parents seems frowned upon. While in India and East Asian cultures it seems to be the norm.

    India also has arranged marriages, doweries to the husband's family and the caste system.
    Cast your burden on the Lord,
    and he will sustain you;
    he will never permit
    the righteous to be moved.
    Psalm 55:22

    It's a pretty common thing in Europe, especially the Mediterranean, a bit less so in NW Europe I think.

    The term also doesn't make sense where i live. Where i live has no basements. Every house where i live is free standing or one story and houses here only have garages. It also doesn't take into account, people who can't work due to a disablity.

    Do you have a crawl space under your house that you can slide in like a slug?
