jso2897: Spiralmonkey: What constitutes an artisanal cheese chop? Do they use hand made guillotines lubricated with the armpit secretions of 80 year old French nuns? Is it somewhere you can take your own home-made caboc and they'll cut it into daisy-shaped rounds that fit exactly onto your hand-pressed oatcakes seasoned with lavender? Do they make motorbikes out of matured Wensleydale?Actually, in my experience, they seem to be utterly bereft of any cheese at all.
nickerj1: spicorama: So did anyone actually read all that BS and care to summarize it for the rest of us?/tldrTrickle down economic theory of a Hipster-based economy (one where everyone is creative, an individual, and paid a lot for doing almost nothing) doesn't work as originally thought, due to the cost of living increases and having to pay a lot for "unique" goods and "unique" services in these areas. This was compared to the trickle down economic theory of a MegaCorp-based economy, where you don't make as much money as an employee, but your cost of living is relatively less because the goods and services are megacorped.

poot_rootbeer: DarkSoulNoHope: due to the housing crash (and the fact that many companies are hoarding cash, instead of hiring and giving raises) they replaced those destroyed historical buildings with *NOTHING*!"Nothing" is an improvement over a lot of what had been standing in Asbury Park -- for example the 11-story skeleton of an unfinished condo building that sat rotting on Ocean Ave from when work was halted in 1992 to when it was finally demolished in 2006.(And then developers laid a foundation and one story worth of concrete and rebar on the same site... which was quickly abandoned when the next crash happened and money ran out.)

toraque: I dunno, I was actually kind of thinking about getting into cheesemaking as a hobby, not really as a hipster thing, but kind of an insurance policy in case of full financial meltdown. I mean, most people will be scavenging the wastes looking for spare ammunition, but I'll be set being the official cheesemaker for Lord Humongous. Even post apocalyptic strongmen recognize the power of a good mozzarella, you know.
ColdFusion: HoratioGates: It's nice that the great lakes can be thought of these days as water. There was a time when they were really nasty back before those pesky environmentalists got ahold of them.Indeed. Anyone else remember this?
