AMAZON WILL DELIVER A HOUSE DIRECTLY TO YOU (AND YES, SHIPPING IS FREE)

I had an unusual experience the other day – I went to a clothes store to buy a pair of jeans, and when the first pair I tried on didn’t quite fit, I tried on several other pairs until I found the right ones.  It was a such a weird contrast to my usual method of shopping, which is to buy a pair online, cross my fingers until they get to my house, and then immediately send them back when they don’t fit or even remotely resemble what I thought I was buying.  And you know what?  I’m probably going to keep buying stuff online even though it’s not ideal, because it’s 2018, and I’m sure you’ll agree that leaving the house and interacting with other people is something we should avoid like the massage booth at a Renaissance Faire.  (Long story.)

You may think it can’t get any worse than the couple next door who passive-aggressively weed-whacks your front yard, without even asking, when it gets a sliver higher than an inch, or the recent GW grads who have all their salmon shorts-wearing bros over to their deck every single weekend to play beer pong and toss their red Solo cups into your backyard, but no, it can actually get a lot worse.  People aren’t just moving to cities;  entire industries are, too, and as they confront the problem of scarcer real estate, they’re embracing verticality.  Which means your next neighbor could be, say, a thirty-story drone hive.
