Election 2022: Dogs at polling stations

TURNING JAPANESE, I THINK I’M TURNING JAPANESE, I REALLY THINK SO: You can rent a ‘bunk bed pod’ in the Bay Area with 13 people for $800 a month.

The housing crisis in the San Francisco Bay Area has gotten so bad that one startup is now offering renters the chance to live in a “bunk bed pod” with 13 other people for just $800 a month.

Brownstone Shared Housing posted an ad for anyone looking to live in Palo Alto, the birthplace of Silicon Valley and the home of Stanford University.

Tenants are given the opportunity to shack up in a house with 13 other people. They sleep in a “bunk bed pod” while sharing two bathrooms.
