Someone read J.G. Ballard's High-Rise, or more likely watched the movie, and thought "That's a great business plan!"

No reports yet of dead bodies in the penthouse pool. Yet. πŸ“š

@mdhughes huh. I live in an apartment building with coffee and food and no one’s turning cheering for some faux revolution in condensed living quarters. This is strange but coming from SV, par for the course.
