Without a satellite dish, it would be beautiful.

Lithuanian houses could be so beautiful, if only their owners would refrain from putting up satellite dishes.

  1. It’s a pity, but sometimes that’s the only way to get a signal. We’re one of the few houses in town who have their dish on a pole, rather than the roof. I’d love to say it was for architectural reasons, and sound so noble-minded and dignified, but the real reason is, they are FAR easier to clean the snow off of when they are on the ground.
    BTW – a little clue for your readers. To avoid (but not completely prevent) snow accumulation, spray the dish itself (NOT the signal “horns”) with a non-stick cooking spray. You need to do it 2-3 times a season, depending on your winters, and if you don’t wash it off come spring, it accumulates dirt and debris, but it works great to keep snow and especially ice off the dish.
    See? Who says the Net is just full of useless crap? :D

  3. I remember what houses looked like in Magdeburg just after the Wall came down. There were satellite dishes everywhere. And everyone decided to put them on the window towards the street. The houses looked bad and were in urgent need of renovation but the dishes made it even worse.

    The first house has such a nice colour scheme for a chicken shed.

    Wait, why do chickens need satellite?
