  1. Instead of complaining about the housing market, be smart, take risks and work hard. Never expect others to acquire housing, pensions, jobs, etc for you especially government.

  2. Everyone is stupid including I. Never forget this.

  3. eschew capitalism. return to crab.

  4. Government backed Ponzi scheme – madoff got caught out so will the Tories, interest rates will have to go up to stop their free and easy way with the economy.

    Oh shit houses just naturally occur? I didn’t know that this is definitely a suitable comparison

  6. Ironically as of February 2022 there’s apparently 735,095 vacant properties across the whole of Britain. Enough to solve the homeless crisis 3 times over.

  7. Is there a way that we could emulate the crabs? May be in one sense we do. The great Jane Jacobs said that affordable housing isn’t so much created as accumulated. Maybe the best way to ensure affordability is to establish systems that ensure medium sized shells aren’t sold for significant profit to newly medium sized crabs. We also need these homes to be built with good enough quality that they aren’t rotten by the time their age would normally make them affordable.

  8. One crab owns all the shells. Charges money to live in the shells so that the other crabs don’t die of exposure.

    If we saw this in nature we would be shocked

  9. Uh, they are crabs…

    It’s because they don’t have a market for housing. Not because it is “better”.

  12. social tenants can do this, house swap/mutual exchange. private renters can’t

    they only do that because a big shell doesnt benefit them, if a big house didnt benefit us we would do the same.

  14. If crabs had a concept of greed this tweet would be very different.

  15. Crabs are more advanced, they eat each other while we still haven’t mastered Soylent Green.

  16. Wait till someone introduces them to the idea of capitalism

  17. They’re hermits, that’s why.

  18. They’re having a housing crisis too, ocean acidification means that shells break down faster and as a result it’s harder for hermit crabs to find a home.

    I just learned that if a hermit crab finds a new shell that is too big it will wait for other hermit crabs who need new shells to gather and then they will organize themselves by size and trade shells and I am pissed that the crabs have a better housing market than we do
