    Interesting. For what it's worth my place isn't multi-wythe brick. It's wood frame with a one-layer brick veneer. And there's already some kind of...

    Same here. It hasn't been unheard of for me to keep my bedroom at 60F or even lower during the summer and 75F in the winter. To me it makes sense....

We shall turn you into gas and pour you into the stratosphere. Nothing will remain of you, not a name in a register, not a memory in a living brain. You will be annihilated in the past as well as in the future. You will never have existed.
-1984


I'm a seeker too. But my dreams aren't like yours. I can't help thinking that somewhere in the universe there has to be something better than man. Has to be.
-Planet of the Apes ( 1968 )
