Default Insulting Article

Is that a Gwyneth Paltrow-endorsed yurt at Standing Rock? - NY Daily News

I think someone has too much time on their hands. They are comparing a Groovy Yurt to other yurts like Pacific or Colorado by simply showing their diameter. To me that is like comparing cars by telling you about the leg room.

I found this article a bit insulting to my intelligence, but maybe it is just me.

I wouldn't call that an article. It seemed like the main point was that someone spent $500 more on a Groovy Yurt instead of one from Pacific or

Colorado yurts

. Not really any other info there, except for bits about "Gweneth Paltrow".

ahah! That is funny! you will always encounter "experts" who will publish something like this without even making the smallest inquiry...
They would have probably gotten another take on the situation if they had taken just 10 minutes to search about the type of yurts they're comparing, real prices, etc...

Darn that $500 dollars that could have been spent on fuel & medicine! It's not like those other yurts mentioned _need_ the

insulation

packages at additional expense...

Man, those

Groovy Yurts

are just too groovy to be a poor man's home/shelter! I mean, it's not like spending $8k on your house is superfluous or anything. And to get a structure as chic as a yurt, especially when you're trying to keep access to somewhat clean water, that's downright hypocritical! I mean what portable/temporary structure not requiring a platform/foundation that has

insulation

, can be reasonably sealed against the elements, and take a snow load are you going to find? A wall tent? I think not!

I don't think

Groovy Yurts

will mind to much if everyone adds a yurt to their Christmas shopping list.

I know I would mind it. HoHoHo!
