The 7 Most Badass Acts of Vandalism Ever Photographed
NOTE: Everything in this article is against the law. If you do it, you will go to jail or something. Most of us think of graffiti as an urban art relegated to back alleys, rap album covers and all of New York City in the 1980s. But sometimes an artist comes along who proves that with enough creativity, vandalism can transcend typical scribbles and dick pictures on the wall. OK, maybe we spoke too soon about the dick pictures, considering ... #7. Via As any novice vandal can tell you, the key to a good public penis drawing is execution, and nobody has executed a better one than the Russian art group Voina. In 2010, the group decided to paint a massive dick on a drawbridge in the middle of St. Via 24flinching.comWe would give anything in the world to find out that they didn't know that was back there during this shot. So picture this: You've got to cross the Neva River, but you don't make it to the Liteiny Bridge on time. So what was all the dick-painting about? #6. #5. #4. Related:  LOL

The Book Surgeon (15 pieces) Using knives, tweezers and surgical tools, Brian Dettmer carves one page at a time. Nothing inside the out-of-date encyclopedias, medical journals, illustration books, or dictionaries is relocated or implanted, only removed. Dettmer manipulates the pages and spines to form the shape of his sculptures. He also folds, bends, rolls, and stacks multiple books to create completely original sculptural forms. "My work is a collaboration with the existing material and its past creators and the completed pieces expose new relationships of the book’s internal elements exactly where they have been since their original conception," he says. "The richness and depth of the book is universally respected yet often undiscovered as the monopoly of the form and relevance of the information fades over time. Dettmer is originally from Chicago, where he studied at Columbia College. Update: Read our exclusive interview with the Book Surgeon here. Brian Dettmer's website

15 Ways to Get Past an Awkward Moment Aug 13, 2012 We’ve all been in awkward situations, our lives are full of them. Nobody’s perfect, but how you handle it can turn an awkward moment into a partial win. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. *Bonus* If you enjoyed this post, the Sifter highly recommends: 8 Children's Movies Studios Don't Have the Balls to Make For my day job, I work for a major feature animation studio, and one of their coolest and most dangerous policies is that any employee can submit a pitch for a movie idea. They're looking for what they call in the biz four-quadrant movies, or what you would think of as "family" movies: Something with enough wit or thrills to keep adults interested, but doesn't involve penis jokes or disembowelment. I've come up with quite a few ideas that were all unfortunately rejected. Not by management, technically, as I wasn't able to get as far as submitting them, but by my co-workers, who physically prevented me from hitting the "submit" button on the computer. They said something about "career suicide" and how they were "saving me from myself." They are watching me like a hawk at work, so I'm going to put these up on Cracked and hopefully one of you guys can help me bypass these so-called gatekeepers of taste and get them in front of some studio heads. #8.

Gaijinass “Just got home from Illinois, lock the front door, oh boy! Got to sit down, take a rest on the porch.” We turn onto a very narrow little road that cuts between two expansive rice fields and which has a dead meter drop on either side and the SUV accelerates somewhat precariously. He reaches over and with his left hand turns the volume up a bit. “Imagination sets in, pretty soon I’m singing,” This little road is really long and the fields are wide and stretch to far away. The interior of the truck is well worn and smells of old leather, pipe-smoke and licorice. “Doo, doo, doo, Looking out my back door.” It takes about an hour to reach the spot by the river he wants to fish at. He changes into his black waders behind the old SUV with it’s silver paint peeling in certain areas. We wade through thigh-high grass and ankle deep mud to reach a solid little spot right at the edge of the water. We wade into the water and it’s cold and pulls at my legs. The first catch of the day.

Wood-Chip Sculptures by Sergei Bobkov 53-year-old Sergei Bobkov has patented a unique technique of creating amazing sculptures out of Siberian cedar wood-chips. “It’s not very interesting to do what others can. To create something out of nothing in a completely new way is far more inspiring”. This is how Sergei Bobkov explains the unique form of art that he created. He says many people compare his artworks to taxidermy, because they both look so much like the animals they replicate, but Sergei believes they are as different as light and darkness. This resident of Kozhany, Russia, has developed his very own technique, that prevents wood-chips from falling apart, in time. Sergey has been doing this for some time now, but he has only created 11 wood-chip sculptures. Even though he was offered $17,000 for his wood-chip eagle.Sergei’s Bobkov declined, saying his rt is not for sale.

Quickfix Archive Over the past few weeks, several major fast food chains have introduced new and visually disgusting additions to their morning menus, prompting what experts are calling the "breakfast wars." Why? Because apparently there is $10 billion to be made off of Americans who can't crack their own eggs in the morning. Clearly, we had to see what the fuss was about, so we sent one lucky researcher to find out which is the least of three evils: the stalwart (McDonald's Egg White Delight McMuffin), the faux elite (Starbucks Bacon and Gouda Sandwich), or the crazy-eyed, shit-stained new kid (Taco Bell Sausage Waffle Taco)? Remember, whoever wins, society loses. If you've started your day by shouting about food out a car window, you're not expecting the "Mona Lisa" on a plate. McDonald's Egg White Delight McMuffin At first glance, the Egg White Delight McMuffin looks like McDonald's is making a solid effort at offering healthy breakfast food. "I am become death.
