I was really questioning whether such dwellings should exist at all. Just because there are people prepared to live in them doesn't make them ok.

You could make the same point about small cars.

Alright then: I don't think people should live in small cars either. :wink:

Be interesting to see how the bed in this one works when you're eighty instead of eighteen:


A spurious point.

Most people's housing needs change quite a bit over the course of their lifetime.

Most people living in inner Paris in their 20s are doing it because of their job.

Most people doing it in their 80s are doing it by choice, and because they have high income or wealth.


Do you think people should be moving every x number of years?
I remember the calls to move the older people out from the areas they made their lifes, their friends/social circles in so that a new generation could move in.

A better example would be why should cars be required to be up to a set safety standard

How else do they create barriers for new manufacturing entrants?

What's not ok about it? Not everyone wants to milk their own cows.

When these discussions come up, I always wonder what I'm missing out by not living next to a hospital. Does the average people pop into them every week?
Also, do we really think that shops within 'walking distance' means you can shop without a car. Should I be able to carry 7 or 8 bags 500 metres without cutting the hands off myself?

Probably means you can get the paper and a litre of milk without having to drive 3 miles for it.

Who drives to a supermarket anymore anyway when they will deliver it to you

Judging by the packed out car parks in most urban supermarkets, it appears there are lots of people are still driving. Who buys a paper these days?
