I See a Road Trip to New York's Village of Psychics in Your Future

quote [ When the forests of Upstate New York are blanketed in orange and brown hues during the fall of Autumn leaves, there are few places more bewitching to escape for the weekend. But there is certainly no place quite like the enchanting hamlet of Lily Dale, NY, population: 275, where over 50 registered spiritual mediums are in residence year-round, offering private readings, forest temple services, seances, workshops and access to the spirit world for all who care to venture to the other side. ]

The social ideology of the motorcar – Uneven Earth

quote [ If the car is to prevail, there?s still one solution: get rid of the cities. That is, string them out for hundreds of miles along enormous roads, making them into highway suburbs. That?s what?s been done in the United States. ]

Here's a thoughtful piece about infrastructure and the car as a luxury good. It's interesting that there seem to be more articles on the roots of car usage in the US as of lately.

A French Chateau Hoarding the World's Largest Private Collection of Fighter Jets

quote [ At no other chateau in all of France will you find a Soviet helicopter parked on the back lawn. Or a 1970s hovercraft. Or a record-breaking collection of World War II fighter jets for that matter. Not to mention a warehouse full of vintage firetrucks, 200 antiques motorbikes, 36 racing cars ? and the list goes on ? all sitting comfortably in retirement amongst the vineyards of Burgundy. ]

Got a fighter jet, I don't get to fly it, though
