"Whipping cream" ain't what it used to be.
Not to mention that it's more sadistic than regular cream.
That article reminds me of a piece I read in Time years ago about someone not entirely unlike that bird -- may even have been the same one for all I know, because the notion was pretty much the same: a home in which you're supposed to be uncomfortable.
Time published my letter commenting on the fool notion, of which all I remember clearly after all this time was my closing line: "Kafka would be proud."
From the article: "[The apartment] makes you alert and awakens instincts, so you'll live better, longer and even forever," says the artist.
No, it'll only seem like forever. Jeez.
If relaxing in my home turns my mind into a puddle, so be it. Living in one of those apartments would definitely raise my road rage level, among other things.
I saw that last item and assumed at first it was about Pajamas Media. Heh.
It might still apply, though.
