Knot Bad In Detroit

March 5th, 2017 · 2 Comments

Our reader Tyson stayed in this Detroit, Michigan condo via airbnb, despite it having knotted curtains. Pointless decoration. Why block the view of downtown? And it would take too long to unknot each panel. (sigh)

Grecian Nightclub?

February 26th, 2017 · No Comments

Our reader Eileen sent us these photos of a home in Greece, New York. For sale $200,000 below comparable properties in the area because…its owner reportedly owned about 50 properties in a money-laundering scheme for drug sales. $10 million in drug sales from 2013-2014 were recorded in a ledger found at this particular property; 1 kilogram of cocaine = $36,000. High finance, for sure! Here’s a link to a new article.

The house looks like a nightclub with several dance floors.

Rapper’s Delight: Hip hop and go-go dancers in this room, complete with photo mural of New York City.
