 No, sorry, that makes no sense. The something that we've been talking about 
is areas with high housing costs. And remember, with the term unsustainable, 
you were making a prediction of some sort.
 

 Now, take some time, think it through, and try to choose words that express 
what you mean rather than just grabbing them at random, throwing them together, 
and hoping they make sense.
 

 Also, try to make an observation that adds to the conversation. We all know 
it's more expensive to live on the coasts than in the interior; that isn't 
anything we need to be told.

Now I am curious about this. A high rent district is unsustainable because it 
takes more energy to continue than it generates? I would have thought you 
might have meant the high cost of living in these expensive neighborhoods that 
seem to be, according to you, on the East and West Coasts of the USA were 
unsustainable because people were not going to be able to afford them soon. If 
that had been what you meant (and apparently it was not based on your post 
above) then I only would like to add that there will always be those who can 
afford expensive things. There will always be rich people who can maintain a 
lifestyle that includes multiple houses, expensive cars, expensive horses and 
lavish holidays. I really don't see the final days of expensive real estate or 
those who can afford to live there.

Judy, another angle: to the extent that something is self energizing, it will 
be self sustaining. To the extent it is self sustaining, to that extent it will 
continue.

 No, sorry, that makes no sense. The something that we've been talking about

you were making a prediction of some sort.

Share, no, you're still just pulling crap out of your ass instead of dealing 
with what Emily, Ann, and I have been pointing out to you. You do not make 
yourself look clever when you do that, to the contrary. As Emily says, your 
attempts to obfuscate (including this one) are obvious. You aren't fooling

 And this isn't that hard to figure out. What will continue (or not)? If you

You must have meant more than that, Share. Overly expensive housing is 
unsustainable for anyone who doesn't have an overly high income. And of 
course it doesn't matter how old you are. Nobody needs to be convinced of 
that, nor does anyone even need to have the point made. It's a truism.
 

  Come on, now, you can do it. Give it another try.

 No, sorry, that makes no sense. The something that we've been talking about 
is areas with high housing costs. And remember, with the term unsustainable, 
you were making a prediction of some sort.
 
 Now, take some time, think it through, and try to choose words that express 
what you mean rather than just grabbing them at random, throwing them together, 
and hoping they make sense.
 
 Also, try to make an observation that adds to the conversation. We all know 
it's more expensive to live on the coasts than in the interior; that isn't 
anything we need to be told.

If the US collapses then there is no Constitution nor 14th Amendment.  
No copyright laws either.


BTW, Ecotopia is the name of a 1970s book.  It is about a high school

 Bhairitu,
 

 When I was living in Seattle, I noticed that a thin layer of snow would just 
about shut down the entire city.  My old boss, back then, would let us go home 
when it started to snow.  I thought that was very reasonable.  Better be safe 
than sorry.

go off into mud and the Forester cut right through it like it wasn't even there.

 We technically have four seasons over here.  But it doesn't snow over here 
during the winter--which is just fine with me.  
 
 
 When I was in Seattle, WA, I used to live on a hilly road.  During the winter, 
the road became frozen with ice.   And, I foolishly drove my car down the hill 
knowing that the car won't stop even if you put the brakes on.  Luckily, I 
never got into an accident using that maneuver.

 John, I've gotten pretty spoiled living in a fairly inexpensive place like FF. 
I think of those high rent districts on the east and west coasts as being

you all have four seasons?

 That Zone sounds pretty cool.  Everyone is welcome to move over here.  We 
already have vastu houses in San Diego.  But I don't know of anyone who has 
built one in the northern California area.

I was living in Seattle then.  But I usually spent my Christmas in San 
Francisco to spend the holidays with my parents when they were still alive.  It 
was also my way of getting away from the cold weather.

 The next day I booked a room at the Holiday Inn because the morning of the 
20th I was to fly down to the Bay Area.  So I didn't want a follow-up storm 
(which did happen) make me miss my flight.
