How do you say "Cool!" in Portuguese?For a mere $300k, you can buy a 3k sq. foot apartment in the city of Curitiba, Brazil. And here's the fun part: the round apartment revolves 360 degrees. The owner can control how fast the revolutions happen, and in which direction. The slowest spead is one revolution per hour. You could use your entire home as a clock. "Oh! There's the corner of 3rd and San Juan! Wait, where am I? In the dining room? Uh oh, time to go to work!" My house in my run-of-the-mill neighborhood costs about the same, and it revolves exactly ZERO degrees every hour. What a rip-off! Note to self: consider Brazilian retirement plan.
