Offbeat, U.S.: What bothers people about McMansions? They’re too tall.

  • Somebody did a study on this. Not a parody one, either. Ohio State University, that school we love to hate (we’re from Michigan, OK?) did a study on the proliferation of McMansions, those really nice-looking standardized houses that have started cropping up in exurbs across the country. Most participants in the study said they didn’t mind the giant houses – as long as they didn’t stick out like a sore thumb, lording over the neighborhood like a castle. Personally, we think they’re perfect for Jesusland. source
