The DC Flipping Market Is Very Healthy  [Urban Turf DC]  The average house flipper made a 75% return on their investment, which means that unless you’re a stock market hacker or a drug dealer, you would make way more money flipping houses.  So why aren’t you?

Frank Lloyd Wright Designed a Gas Station  [Atlas Obscura]  There’s a lookout tower on the top of it, for no apparent reason.  I guess you shouldn’t really nitpick a Frank Lloyd Wright design, but seriously – what’s with the lookout tower, Frank?

What Can You Do With a Dismantled Stadium?  [Citylab]  Tear it up into little pieces and sew the pieces into wallets, apparently.  Which I admit I had never thought of before.
