… The lower level of the home is a big rec room with a wine fridge and a wet bar, so just resign yourself now to hosting every Super Bowl party for the next decade.

That’s because we’re making way too much garbage to deal with, and once the ocean’s full, we’re going to have to figure out something to do with all this trash. You may not have noticed, but it’s already started: container homes are only a thing because it was cheaper to discard all the steel shipping containers that brought Chinese imports across the Pacific than to ship the empty ones back. … THESE HOUSES ARE MADE OUT OF TRASH, AND IN THE FUTURE YOURS WILL BE TOO

However, a couple of white herons could be spotted safely away from the crowds out in the water, one perched on a branch, the other slowly strolling through the shallow areas on his long legs. … EXPERIENCE THE LUXURIOUS LOTUS AT KENILWORTH AQUATIC GARDENS
