I Was Gonna Live In a Van Down by the River, but Buying a House was Cheaper

Matt_Foley,_Saturday_Night_Live.jpgCrazy-ass statistic of the day:

Average house prices in Detroit: $19,448.

Average price of a car: $22,650.

Too bad the houses don’t have wheels; if you could move them half an hour away to Ann Arbor, the value would multiply by 12.

If I were Michael Bay, I might consider buying the entire city of Detroit and blowing it up — it’d be a cool special effect, and it’d be cheaper than CGI.
