Utopia is a state of things in which everything is perfect. This is what politicians promise but few deliver. Back in 1844, a bunch of retro hippies took the law into their own hands and created a commune. They planned to cabin together, share their money and apparently everything else besides.

After they bust up, they sold their cabin to a band of spiritualists whose leader relocated it to a riverbank. While they were celebrating their move, the rain came down, the water roared and the flood washed the cabin away. This goes to show that utopia is often down the river and out of reach.
