This discussion of mess in the common house brings a related problem to mind. We find that common house dishes and cutlery tend to migrate into our houses, and conversely that our crocks etc. move over to the common house, and then from there into other peoples houses. There is a process of diffusion tending to a state of increased entropy wherein everybody has an equal share of everyone elses dishes. A similar thing happens with tools, books, etc. What solutions do people have to this problem? Stuart Staniford-Chen. N-Street Cohousing stuarts [at] landau.ucdavis.edu PS - Our dish problems might be worse than most folks as our common dishes are all from the thrift store (us being keen re-users and re-cyclers). Hence it isn't obvious that they are common dishes (although they do all have an orange spot painted on the bottom).
