Yo dawg, we heard you like living life in the fast lane…

So we put your house in the fast lane, so you can, whatever while you whatever… you get where we’re going.

According to a story from the Mirror, a couple of families in Wenling, China had no interest in selling their property so that a large highway could be built in its place. Instead of waiting out the Arthur Dent-loving building owners, the construction of the highway commenced… around the existing apartments. We’re not just talking about two apartments though, because these units belong to an entire block of properties that are currently occupying a major portion of the highway.

Apparently, the plan for motorists is to simply drive around it. The plan for the property owners? There thinking about opening a drive-thru store. Either way, we want to buy ad space on the side of the building…

      If you lived here, you'd be home now!

    It's progress, I guess.

    20 years ago, these owners would have been shot in their home by the government and bulldozed with the house.

    Clever. With typical Chinese quality control in this building's construction, it will be reduced to a pile of rubble from the vibrations of passing traffic within days of the highway's opening, thus driving the price way down.

    And the story about the building being hit by a truck in:……….3…2…

    When the residents say that they live on Main Street, they really do.

      "Where do you live?"

    Why not jack it up and have the highway go under it, like the McDonalds on I-44 near Vinita, Oklahoma?

      I go under that place about 6 times a week and it is a DUMP. The franchisee should have lost his franchise a long time ago for letting such a cool building get so bad.

      • dukeisduke

        It was originally a real sit-down restaurant with real food, before it became a McDonalds. It's probably been 10 years since I've been in that place.

    Just knock out a couple of lanes in the bottom and make it a toll road. For $1 you can drive through the house, not around it!

    Just in … FIA has just announced the addition of a second Chinese Grand Prix in Wenling. Fans are said to be up in arms over a new course element – the chincane.

    Whole grain breads, cereals and pastas have high amounts of
    thiamin. When our body p – H ( becomes more and more acidic it starts to set
    up defense mechanisms to keep the damaging acid from entering our
    vital organs. A common problem, particularly in larger breeds of
    dogs, is problems with their joints as they age.
