jellitonoctopus - that's the beauty of the comment section. You see, many millenia ago the Mighty FML Deity decided to make Fmylife.com. And he looked and saw it was good. And he said, "Yea, Fmylife.com is good, glory be. But the people should be able to comment on the vignettes." And the FML comment section was born. And now the people may comment as they wish without invitation, Deity be praised. Hallelujah and amen and all that etc etc.
Times have changed sadly. What used to be out the house by the age of 18-25 has now become more 23-30. While it makes sense, due to the economy and low paying jobs a a young age, and college expenses, living on your own can be tough. Parents are definitely good resources if you have them available. Anyway, back to the FML. If he brings up the "I don't want you treating my like a kid anymore" bull, tell him it's because he's actig like a little kid. Black leather and chains is a good look, but the attitude is total crap. He probably just wants attention. Keep an eye on him, he might vandalize. How fun, right?
If he's that old and this is happening, he's either mentally fucked in the head or OP is a fail parent. Seriously, if my kid was yelling at me while I'm providing him a place to live, (this still assumes he's 29) I'd kick his ass out of the house and charge rent if he wanted back in.

OP, that really doesn't sound normal. It sounds like he may have some serious emotional problems. You should certainly consider kicking him out if he lives at home, to encourage self-sufficiency, but if he has an underlying serious problem, that won't fix too much. While he is an adult and you can't force him to do anything (unless you bargain with the shelter and food you provide him,) you can try to get him some help. That sounds very frustrating, though, and I am sorry for you.
