  • "I lived in the UK, admittedly for *only* a year, but I did my share of plugging and unplugging. Never had this issue, even once. True, maybe there's an aspect of living in an older home where you're reaching behind couches and whatnot, but I just don't get it. The small finger dents on either side of the plug head are plenty to get a hold of it and pull off."

  • "I can imagine one of these would be excellent if you're building a home and want to live on-site or if you want to add an ADU as an in-law suite or second income property. Could also be used to quickly reshape a piece of land in a city — imagine an demolished factory or parking lot becoming and instant neighbourhood!"

  • "Both the hand-lettered wordmark and a proposed "flat" version need some updating for modern times. Typographic logos have only improved in the last 50+ years, even with the new challenges of digital screens. A company like Ford can handle it, but only if they give it a real college try. No nibbling around the edges."

  • "It's like that scene in Willy Wonk and the Chocolate Factory where the girls are thumbing through Wonka bars trying to find the Golden Ticket."

  • "100% agree! This makes more sense as a two-seater. With a bed that small, why not enclose the whole thing and have an SUV? At least then the seats could fold down and you could actually move some lumber or furniture."

  • "If they can be broken into something resembling gravel, you've got a use for hardscaping and other outdoor decorations. I, for one, would love an unexpected splash of colour — and some upcycling cred to boot — around my patio.They could also be caged and used as barricades, similar to how natural stone is used. Maybe somewhat less dense, but still would require heavy machinery to move.The same cages could be tossed off-shore to use as reef starters. Not sure if barnacles will stick to the surfaces per se, but something tells me nature will find a way. (Assuming they're inert and non-toxic to begin with)"

  • "Luca's update is of course a million times more logical, but we'd likely have to "dumb it down" to eliminate rich text styles, font sizes, and emoji ... in other words, how would we do it on a typewriter?CAPS FOR HEADERS// Entry Items with some punctuations// Another Item----------- Divider line --------------SECOND CATEGORY// All ClearFolks who write CSS code have figured out some clever text-based formatting tricks!"

  • "We have dog poo bags dispensers in Brooklyn. I've seen them along Eastern Parkway, as well as in front of my sister's old building in Kensington. Can't say I've seen them in Manhattan, there's not a lot of space for _anything_ new on those sidewalks, but now that I work in a pet store part time, I see the world a little differently, and notice pet-related objects in the wild more regularly."

  • "The top shelf pictured would be useful, slightly larger, to hold binders and other notebooks. This way, you could open 'er up and add/remove pages right there at the shelf, without having to deploy the whole thing to the nearest table and take up valuable desk space. Not everyone works this way, of course, but I am a 3-ring binder kinda person, so this would be nice for me."

  • "Could be another party to blame — the City itself in the form of building regulations. I can easily imagine an obscure code that specifies that white letters must be used if the building material itself is darker than 55% grey (100 being pure black), or else attach a sign with a white background only. So yes, it would be more subtle and sleek to use some kind of low-profile laser engraving, but it might incur a big fat fine from the Dept. of Buildings. for riding roughshod over low-vision persons, or not being visible from X feet away."
    on: Today's Urban Design Observation: Is This Screw-Up the Designer's Fault or the Contractor's Fault?
  • "Wouldn't be surprised if there was also a workaround to some obscure law. Perhaps it was worded vaguely, saying "saloons shall be hidden from view of the public street" but at the same, they want to let the music and banter flow out to entice customers. Not to mention allow natural light and fresh air in."
    on: What Was the Purpose of Saloon Doors?
  • "One update I would make to the survey is to ask "are you currently employed?" or some version of "is freelance working for you?" Better to have those looking-for-work self-identify than to pollute the data with low salaries."
