Five-Star Prison in Austria.

Beautiful glass and stainless steel office building? Nope - that's a five-star prison in Styria, Austria!

If you look at these figures comparing crime in Austria and crime in the U.S. you’ll notice something odd: although the U.S. has higher crime rates in virtually every category (murder, forcible rape, robbery, aggravated assault, etc…) the Austrians triumph in one category: burglary. But why? Why is the rate of burglaries in Austria a whopping 40% higher than in the U.S.? I’ll tell you why: because Austrian minimum security prisons are f---ing awesome! If you’re in Austria, and have a working brain, you should be trying to get into one right now! - via Kottke
