Huh, I'd always thought neutron bombs were essentially "atomic biomass scrubbers" but didn't realize that the incandescence was contained in such a small area.

Learn something new every day, I suppose.

Oh yeah and the 20-something hipsters in the article? They sound like normal 20-something hipsters, which is to say whiny, entitled douches with no real perspective on the world.

Sounds like something that might have been fun in my late teens or early 20s.  That shiat would get really old once you start to grow up a bit though.

I feel sorry for the patty melt guy.  That just shows what veganism gets you; a digestive system that doesn't work properly when asked to deal with actual food.

Sometimes it's even contained between scenes of "The Star Wars Holiday Special". It turns out that neutron bombs make op art.

Jesus. You don't live in co-op housing because you want to subvert the dominant paradigm of consumerist, materialist culture or to meet like-minded creative people. You live in co-op housing for the free and easy access to sex and drugs. Idiots.

I don't know.  It sounds a lot like a dorm only with the added hassle of having to clean up after yourself which, let's face it, most college kids wouldn't do either.  I probably could have handled it for a while, but I have a problem living with (or in hearing distance of) people who keep radically different schedules from me.  After one bad experience with roommates in grad school I didn't share a living space again until I got married.

Get the right group and it's not bad. Saves money and you meet interesting people most of the time and you aren't struggling as much to make ends meet. Of course there's tussles but that's not unusual even in marriages. Which are of course hardly ever filled with conflict.

You mean, this really cool thing that all of my friends and I are doing isn't new and original to us, and that we're just like all of the generations before us that did all of these same kinds of things, thinking they were original?

Say it ain't so...

Criminy, city kids are farking stupid.

I live in the burbs. My rent is under $450 and I live in a nice part of town. My place even has a pool, hot tub and fitness center. It's not unusual, either. Most places around here start in the $400 range. A nice two-bedroom flat would run you in the neighborhood of $650 per month with all the amenities, and heat is included. A deluxe place might approach $900.

And these people live in an area where a studio apartment is over $1000 ?!?!

So the only solution for these idiots is to live together in a crappy place and deal with the bullshiat of roommates. Fark that. I don't know how people can cope with roommates. I'd sooner live in a cardboard box in a trainyard than live with a collection of 20-something roommates again. That was hellish, and I only stayed for a few months when I tried it. Now that I'm well out of my 20s (20 years ago) I wouldn't want non-family roommates ever again. You might as well live in the YMCA. It's the same thing: A crappy room next to people you hate because they use your toothbrush to clean between their toes when you're not around.

And I am a "creative", too. We have the Internet and transportation today... You don't need to live in some high-priced city to be creative. I have published a few works, I get some meager royalties, and I still manage to live in a place where I have privacy and a lot more left in my wallet at the end of a month.

I lived in cities. I hated it. Being packed in shoulder-to-shoulder with people is a terrible way for a creative person to live.

I think these kids would be better off in a commune than in a co-op. At least in a commune you have a chance of having your own bunkhouse, lean-to, tent, teepee, cabin, or villa. And the rent is pretty cheap.

No, the truth here is that these trendy f♥cks are partying extroverts who NEED to live in a house with a bunch of other kids because it feeds their need for constant contact with their social circle. They're not "creatives" -- They're the Twitter gen kids. They're the helicopter-parented twits who need other people around to help them make decisions and cut up their food for them. They'd go crazy if they had to live alone and act independently, so this entire generation of kids is going to spend their entire lives living like they're in their college dorm.

Good luck with that. You're all going to be so unbearably obnoxious once you reach your 40s and you're still living like that.

Only read half the article, it was way too long and didn't feel like it was going anywhere. But mainly I came to crap on vegans.

If vegan makes you healthier then why do I hear so many of them complain they feel sick after the smallest amount of meat, I mean I've heard them complain they feel sick from broth. Broth the stuff most people eat when they already feel sick because it's so easy on the stomach.

But back to the article, I could never live in a city as I absolutely hate having roommates and I'm far from rich enough to afford my own place.  I do think it will probably turn into a major issue in my life, as rent prices keep going up, wages stay the same, and they property management are making it harder and harder to rent. Like the the whole credit score thing, PMs use it to check out potential renters, but they themselves do not effect your credit score, so if you've never missed rent, but owe some money to a collection agency, they'll still say no(or at least require a co-signer.)

I think barracks living is the closest I could ever stand living with other people. Having seen the horror that is 20-somethings sharing a house and lacking a dishwasher, I'd probably burn the place to the ground and vanish into the night. At least in the barracks you have legitimate threats to make people clean up their shiat and not lose their keys (fines, extra duty).

Yeah... it sucks that credit is used to determine your rent-worthiness when it doesn't even take into consideration that you missed those other bills to make sure you got your rent in on time. You'd think that would go in the "plus" column for many landlords.

I'm being serious. If you prioritize rent, then they should be happy with you and not give a rat's ass whether or not you still owe the Columbia Record Club $26, or whether your student loan is hovering over your head. If you always make your rent, regardless of other debts, then you should be considered a keeper.

I'm with you though: City living is crap. You pay more, get less, and have to deal with ten times the people-- And they're all miserable and pissed-off, it seems.

That said, small towns suck, too. They're clandestine, gossipy, judgmental, and clannish. If you're an outsider, they'll castrate you. If you buck their traditions or trends, they'll act to ruin you.  Small town folk are some of the most intolerant, small-minded people out there.

Something in-between is where you want to be. Not too small, not too big. A place just beyond the point where the skyscrapers are visible, but not so far out that you're stuck behind tractors on your way to work.
