To be fair, it's the only apartment in the state of North Dakota

I should drive up there with two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high powered blotter acid, a salt shaker half full of cocaine, and a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers... and also a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of Budweiser, a pint of raw ether and two dozen amyls.

I'd make a fortune. I bet those dudes are DESPERATE.

apoptotic: May as well take a carload of hookers while you're at it.


That was thought #2.

 Thought #3 was, "If I had (huge drug collection) and a half dozen whores, we'd never farkin' make it to the Dakotas."

Fracking in the town where my brother lives has driven the rental cost of a single-wide mobile home to $1500/month and that's in Bumfark, TX.

They bunched up NYC with "New York-Northern New Jersey-Long Island, NY-NJ-PA".

I dare anyone to find a decent apartment in or near Manhattan for $1,504/mo.

dletter: This is the "oil boom" town I believe, so, I take it that this is just because there are so few apartments available, and all of a sudden an influx of people desperately needing apartments to live in.

/Supply and demand even works in places you wouldn't expect folks.


That's exactly right.  It's a fracking boom town, and construction companies aren't able to build fast enough to meet oil/gas worker demand.

If I recall correctly, this town is actually having a problem with too little unemployment.  There are so many relatively lucrative jobs with the energy companies that there's practically no one left to work the restaurants and shopping centers.
