I don't think they'll really think anything of those, just as many preservationists now seem to simply overlook 1930s Tudors and historic late 19th-early 20th century farmhouses.

Also, there is a distinct difference between a clearly novel thread of architecture, and a 'attempt at homage/recreation' type deal.

This was truly tragic. Honestly, I could not watch the entire video.

It's not just the end of "good taste" it signifies corruption (or at least undue influence), short sightedness, and a lack of communal outrage at stupidity and the destruction of historically significant works.

The people who propose and approve such acts should be deeply ashamed and the house should have been purchased by someone interested in a historical rennovation rather than a historically idiotic destruction.

You got a problem with Diet Coke motherfucker? To be honest I've grown tired of it. And soda in general.

Diet Dr. Pepper from McDonald's is amazing. It's pretty much the only place that carries it at as a fountain drink, too.

Egg McMuffin with Diet Dr. Pepper is my go to. Sometimes I get their ice cream cones too.

Soda is disgusting. It's horrible for you and I think people only like it because they get used to that burning sensation when they drink it.

I gave it up about 10 years ago (and I used to drink it a lot), but now it actually like burns my throat. I do sometimes have a nice glass of coke, and that's enjoyable in small amounts, but as far as chugging it.... ew.

You know Conne, for an elitist, almost all of your taste in food is extremely blue collar. In fact, more along the lines of trailer park.
