    [–] Im half the house I use to be savvyfuck 1102 points ago in evilbuildings

    It looks more like an optical illusion or photo edit than a real dwelling, but this hundred-year-old halved townhouse really stands out on the streets of Toronto.

    This house in Toronto, Canada was built in the early 1890s as part of a set of six homes with shared walls. Starting in the 1950s, owners of the neighboring units started to crumble under pressure from a developer, slowly selling their domiciles one at a time.

    As a result, each of the other structures was torn down with surgical precision. When the occupant of the final house in the row refused to sell at any price, they cleaved off the other half of the building and the shared structural wall running down the middle was reinforced and covered in concrete. The neighboring building- Village by the Grange opened in the 1970s.

    A current assessment on file with the city for the split house lists the value at $648,000.

    Unemployment numbers are bogus. Just because you're "employed" doesn't mean that part time job paying you $11/hr is a livable wage. Long term career opportunities are drying up in many sectors as many companies rather cycle in a fresh set of people making a low wage rather retaining loyal dedicated employees. You see this a lot in hospitality

    Taktsang (Tiger’s Nest) Monastery

    Once I heard the name, I couldn't help but think a bunch of ninjas live up there

    Guru Padmasambhava, popularly known as Guru Rinpoche visited and sanctified Bhutan in the 8th century when evil spirits abounded and harmed people.

    Legend has it that Guru Rinpoche flew to this site on a tigress’ back to subdue a local demon. Thereafter, he meditated here for three years, three months, three weeks, three days and three hours.

    Taktshang Goemba or Tiger’s Nest Monastery was blessed and sanctified as one of Bhutan’s most sacred religious sites. It hangs on a cliff and stands above a beautiful forest of blue pine and rhododendrons.
