America's oldest shopping mall has been partially converted into low rent micro-apartments.

For people who are single and living on a tight budget, this looks really cool.
It really does.
I’m glad kriegs said “attractive doctor.”
I believe the phrasing was 'attractive doctor chick.'
The whole time I was thinking, This video is from 2015. I bet she’s not living there anymore.
The only thing preventing dualstow from going perving... ;D

I knew someone was going to add the 'chick' but I thought it'd be someone else. 😂
I meant she's probably seen a flood of young suitors since that video came out!

One of the quotes from the video: "I mean.. come on. The guy jumped on top of the B26 from the roof of an ice cream truck. He also fired the flamethrower into the street before jumping off."

Freeze-frames from that video clip will make some great 2020 memes.

Elon Musk's perspective on scientists versus engineers. Who wins according to the planet's greatest entrepreneur.

However, are there not some people who are equally both? Or, is that not possible?

Sure, I'd agree with that. I think Musk was just trying to make a pragmatic distinction rather than a philosophical one.

I agree with Musk, based on my experience. I also think both are needed. Scientists tend to mainly speak science. Engineers can understand science speak AND translate the science speak into practical applications AND sell those applications to laymen with the money to fund both the science and the engineering. Synergy at work!
I marvel at the creation - its beauty, its endurance, its complexity. I marvel that man can make complex things but is incapable of making even the simplest living organism - a blade of grass, a tree, an ant, an amoeba.

Charles Ellis on the latest episode of WealthTrack's interviews. Great discussion with timeless investment advice as usual.
