I remember when I first came back to the states after living in Vietnam, my first thought was:
Wow, so much space in America is wasted … there is too much matter and surface area being wasted.
Why you don’t want a big car
It is currently over 90 degrees in Southern California … and the thought:
Having to wash your car (all the time) is such a pain in the ass.
This is why having a black car (especially in Southern California) sucks. You gotta wash it literally every day to have it look good and clean. Far better to get a white car, a yellow car, or perhaps even a green/cream/matte white/red car.
Consider if you got a big car … how much surface area you must wash and polish. Huge waste of time.
This is why even if you’re a billionaire, probably best to get a Tesla Model 3 (performance) over even the Tesla Model S plaid.
Why? Less surface area. Easier to park, less to wash and polish.
More efficient homes
Even a thought on homes:
The less square footage, the better.
Certainly there are cases where *too small* is indeed too small. For example having a child, I wouldn’t want to go back to our Osaka or Kyoto (insanely tiny) studio (perhaps 150 square feet or less?) Then the question:
What is the optimal smallness?
As small as possible, but not any smaller
Thus, don’t just choose the smallest for the sake of the smallest… but the most optimal smallness.
