How's this for a sub-culture: Freeganism

Freeganism is a total boycott of an economic system.As freegans we forage
instead of buying to avoid being wasteful consumers ourselves.Perhaps the
most notorious freegan strategy is what is commonly called "urban
foraging" or "dumpster diving". This technique involves rummaging through
the garbage of retailers, residences, offices, and other facilities for
useful goods. Rather, we use other methods of transportation including
trainhopping, hitchhiking, walking, skating, and biking.

A new way to live-Modern Design

I was checking out a web site ( using a nifty browser toolbar app. from It selects web sites randomly based on personalized preferences you select. For example; architecture,books, counterculure, atheist/agnostic, blues music, liberal politics and food/cooking.

The LoftCube is an interesting modern loft design concept originating in Berlin. The idea is a rooftop temporary,minimalistic, domicile approximately 40 square meters. Think geodesic domes of the 1960's but with modern design. It's placed on top of the building of your choice using a freight helicopter or construction crane. You just need a rooftop to rent. And, it can be moved city to city.

This might be the perfect thing in case water levels rise due to global warming.
