“We as a society have begun to think of what our elders are capable of as merely pinochle and dancing and bingo — and that’s such a waste of humanity. It really is. I mean, that’s sadder in my opinion than cases of neglect that you see in facilities. To see someone who is, or was a doctorate — had a doctorate — or was a high-level professional or was just good at what they did, could have been a cabinet maker, and then to see them lose that edge, to see them stop and become what I call elder zombies. It’s very sad, very sad.” — Former journalist Martin Bayne on societal perceptions of the elderly (via nprfreshair)

The Chinese city of Zhuzhou, the second largest in the province of Hunan, is being pressed under the tremendous pressure of growth.

Thus, these wonderful photos of McMansion-style housing atop a five-story shopping center in the central district of Zhuzhou.

There is grass up there, which I think ALL buildings should have, but houses? Can they have parties up there? I’m curious about the weight-load on the roof. I have so many questions.roof garden plus houses!
