Every day, someone on /r/nc asks where can they relocate to that:

- has outdoor activities
- decent, reliable internet
- less expensive housing
- lcol

Good schools are seemingly less requested now (Not having kids?).

I keep my mouth shut.

I think I've let up on my "water discipline" TBH. I'm not surprised to see this has crept back up.

I just read they have been finding lots of human remains at the bottom with the water levels so low.

We had some discussion of those here as well. Our use case is a bit different - rental owners/operators could use them to spy on guests and try to stop running toilets or some excessive usage. Not cheap though.
