Awesome post Seth,

Thanks and have a great day.


Seth Williams August 22, 2014 at 2:43 pm

Thanks Engelo! You too. :)

What I wouldn’t give for that house in Iceland! Just “drone” me my groceries and I am GOOD TO GO!!


Seth Williams August 22, 2014 at 2:43 pm

Lol – no kidding. I’m with you Mike!

Cool stuff. That path-laying machine is awesome! And solar-ray death… too funny (and sorry to those folks whose problems I am laughing at).


Seth Williams August 23, 2014 at 11:02 am

I hear you Ron! Kind of hard to believe they didn’t realize there would be a problem until that building was built.


Karen Margrave August 23, 2014 at 10:02 am

Great pics! The house in Iceland looks so lonely! On a practical note, I love the brick laying machine!


Seth Williams August 23, 2014 at 11:03 am

Thanks Karen! Some days I honestly wouldn’t mind living on a secluded island like that (though I’m not sure about making it my primary residence). :)

I don’t see a picture of Manhattan in 1600. Love that brick laying machine. And I sure hope that walled city has proper sewage treatment or that could be awful!! Love your unique posts!

@Sharon: Manhattan in 1600 is on the left of the image, while 2014 is on the right.


Sharon Tzib August 24, 2014 at 5:36 pm

Hmmm, I don’t get it. Don’t see any demarcation. I’m a West Coaster tho, so maybe it would make more sense if I knew NY better :)


Eric Blanchard August 25, 2014 at 12:04 pm

Lol, it must be a west coaster thing like you say. I had to look at it for quite a while too before it made sense.

We need to see some interior photos of the world’s most expensive house because the outside just isn’t cutting it. Thanks.;-)

Great pictures, but I have to point out that the Kowloon Walled City no longer exists. It was torn down in the 1990’s. The site is now a park.
