There is a ridiculous house on the market in D.C., which has been given the name “Palazzo della Felicita (Palace of Happiness)”, and it’s a 16,000 sq. foot pile of…something. But what cracked me up the most was the eight car (that’s not a typo) garage:
No, it’s not that the garage floor is made of marble, which soaks up oils and can therefore stain. You see those beige things on the wall? Those are Siemens charging stations for electric cars. Yes, you have enough space–which needs to be heated and cooled–to easily house a few dozen people for a single family, eight cars, but thank goodness you’re helping save the environment with your electric car.
But a seventy percent tax bracket on high incomes would be a bad thing. Or something.
