I had a difficult time believing that it could actually happen – even in Boulder.
It’s part of the opening sentence of the article. It starts with a bang. Here’s my quick and dirty translation of that article into more explicit terms, after having read the rest of the article:
I know that Boulder is one of the worst cesspools of property rights disrespecting slime molds masquerading as humans in the entire country, right up there with San Francisco and New York City, but this is ridiculous.
I was amused by a response I received to that translation on reddit:
San Francisco and NYC at least have the excuse that they are actual cities. Boulder is a huge strip mall studded with trustafarians.
I love the sense of humor I keep seeing on reddit.
I think my all-time favorite reddit comment, and definitely the coolest thing I’ve seen on the Internet this month, is a comment from reddit user asciilifeform, though:
Let’s apply adverse possession to intellectual property law.
Anyone here a lawyer? Itching to make a Supreme Court precedent?
