Pitfalls of an underground house

I think having an underground house would be wonderful.

Just the thought of living that close to nature – and all the benefits it might confer – brings a smile to my face.

But like many ideas, it’s often the practice that proves most challenging. Reality often smacks you in the face. 🙂

Why We Don’t Like Our Underground House [Den Garden] – “MizBejabbers is a writer who has lived in this underground house since 1994. She writes from experience, not advertising hype.”

Speaking of reality, I haven’t seen Tenet yet but apparently, it’s cheaper to crash a real 747!

Tenet: Christopher Nolan explains why they crashed a real 747 instead of using CG [Games Radar] – “Tenet promises to be a truly cinematic spectacle. That’s pretty much all we know about Christopher Nolan’s upcoming spy-thriller, which remains on track to become the first major movie release of the Summer. However, Total Film can reveal a little more about one of Tenet’s biggest set-pieces – one that required the production team to purchase and then crash a real 747 into a hangar. You read that correctly. That’s not a partial fibreglass replica of a jet. Not CGI. This is a real aeroplane, bought by the production.”


Addicted to losing: How casino-like apps have drained people of millions [ABC News] – “Shellz, 37, a nurse from Houston, spends at least two hours a day with her husband playing a casino-style smartphone game called Jackpot Magic. The app offers a variety of typical casino games to play, including […] a game in which players accrue points by playing a virtual slot machine. As in a real casino, players exchange money for coins to bet. Unlike in a real casino, there is no way to win money back or earn a payout on coins. But that has not stopped Shellz and her husband from spending about $150,000 in the game in just two years. She asked to use her in-game username so her family does not find out how much money they have spent on the game.”

Scary stuff.

Be careful out there!
