    Well, duh! Why do you think I want one? I tried riding standard-size horses. As far as I'm concerned they were invented for some giant freaks with legs of unreasonable length, capable of spending hours in a horizontal split.

    The hair stylist said this was her second bull mastiff - and both were the best babysitters ever. She never had to actually hire a human one.

    I think in Italy, if you agree to use it for a specific type of business (tourism-related, IIRC), they will quite literally gift you the castle.

    Well, sort of.
    The castles (or towers, or just farm houses) are all in pretty rotten shape. If you agree to fully restore the property and open it to the public as a hotel or such, you can get a nine year lease that costs you nothing. The Italian government retains ownership, and after that nine years you're going to be paying.

    Hm, the nine year part I didn't know. That's a shame.

    Well, I don't know if it takes quite that, but a castle would definitely do it.

    I can totally understand it. These places have a historic significance, and what the Italian government seems to be trying to do is find creative ways to get them restored.

    Well of course. If they weren't in awful shape, the government wouldn't be looking for ways to get them restored.

    Yeah. Im by no means saying it's a bad thing, and I would love for all of them to get restored, however possible. Especially if they become tourism related, since for the most part that will probably result in them becoming theaters, hotels or museums. Hopefully (IMO) mostly museums.

    You mean that 39,000,000-mile distance @Xue Sheng always quotes will suddenly shrink to something more manageable?
