    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.
