How much is the price of a plot in there? Just asking out of's not something I could afford, I'm sure.

Oh, that precious undeveloped real estate! What a great location for a mixed-use condo building.

A plot costs $350K.

Just getting back in from some time in the Northern Bush, and the first couple of things I see are Black Hole and Marbleous.....

.....PERFECT re-introduction to wasting hours online :+)

.....I was jonesin' out there man....the BIG screen was fine, but the resolution was fuzzy at "update" buttons on the beer cans.....scrollin' while strollin' through the woods is REALLY NOT a good idea....deleting the mosquitoes did NOT work.....and the trees didn't seem to want to "comment" about anything.....even tried the "MAKE SOME NOISE" cheer on some little foxes....nuttin'!

Summer in the connected city.....let it roll!

David Chang's Corpse-ofuku was the best! I can't remember the last time I had a fresher corpse sandwich and the line was only four and a half hours long!

I love standing online for food! My time isn't important at all. So when I heard David Chang's afterlife culinary creation was back I just had to try the corpse sandwich. I got it with the hydroponic tartar. OMFG!

Love the solitude and beauty of the Marble Cemetery. However, might the accordion player/singer spare us the gifting of her talents? Though well intentioned I'm sure, her performances could be considered "disturbing the peace" and infringe on one's ability to enjoy the experience on their own terms.
