When it comes to public art, it can either be annoying and pointless (like children falling down while holding hands) or really weird and completely random. We’ve covered some strange statues before, like the "Child Eater" in Switzerland, the Boll Weevil Monument in Alabama, and the Beatles in Kazakhstan. Well, here’s another one to add to the list.
Located in Malá Straná, on the small plaza right outside the Kafka Museum (I wonder what he would have to say about this?) is a fountain made by sculptor David Černý. Created in 2004, the appropriately titled Piss depicts two bronze figures on opposite ends of a pool with swiveling hips and moving male genitalia from which steady streams of water write out quotes from famous Czechs. And the pool just happens to be shaped like the Czech Republic, so they’re peeing directly onto their homeland. How controversial and amusing! Anyway, if you happen to be visiting this public artwork, you can call a number listed nearby and send a text message. Guess what? The sculptures will write (or should I say pee) out your words. How interactive! In a 2009 interview, Černý said the figures are “an apt commentary on the self-deprecating Czechs, who [he] contends have gritted their teeth through centuries of invasion and occupation, barely resisting and seldom winning at anything.” How political!

Film archive British Pathé has released its entire collection to YouTube, making more than 85,000 rare 20th Century videos available to the public. History enthusiasts are now able to browse more than 3,500 hours of some of the most significant moments of the last century. Included in the vast release is unique footage of both World Wars, the Titantic, boxing legend Muhammed Ali and England’s glorious 1966 World Cup victory over Germany.

British Pathé says the films, which span from 1896 to 1976, cover every aspect of global culture and news. The archive’s general manager, Alastair White, told Sky News: “British Pathé is considered to be the finest news reel archive in the world. We decided to publish our entire archive to YouTube to ensure the maximum number of people can enjoy viewing British Pathé films.” The YouTube channel has been set up in collaboration with the German company Mediakraft Networks, an online television network.

Although the videos were previously available on the British Pathé website, it is the first time they have been made accessible for browsing and sharing. In a joint statement, British Pathé and Mediakraft said the project was set up to allow students, teachers and journalists to view, share and embed the high-resolution videos. It said the footage “paints vivid pictures of almost forgotten lifestyles, peculiar technical inventions and everyday life that British Pathé presented in newsreels, cinemagazines, and documentaries.” —British Pathé Publishes Archive On YouTube

New favorite thing to say when disappointed.

chris control your goddamn face you have just gone through an extremely painful super-serum transformation you did not just have the diddly doo orgasm

…actually, at this point, Steve’s just now experiencing the sudden absence of both recent extreme pain and long-term low level pain.  He’s probably so high on endorphins that the expression is completely accurate.

Also, he was asthmatic. This is the first time in twenty years that his lungs work. Ever had an oxygen high?

Might not be an O-face folks, but homeboys high as a kite.

TIII.ME.

You’ve just got to try the site tiii.me! Created by designer Alex Cican, this minimalist cool tool allows you to calculate how much time you’ve spent watching you’re favorite TV shows!

Just go to tiii.me, type in your favorite show (ex: Breaking Bad), select how many seasons you’ve seen (ex: 5), and hit the arrow button. Bam! It will show you have many days, hours, minutes (ex: 2 days, 14 hours, 0 minutes) of your life you’ve used / invested / wasted. It also gives you the option to share your results on twitter.

The beauty of this baby is you can add more TV shows (ex: Breaking Bad plus Attack On Titan and Dexter) following the same procedure above. Now you’ll know how many days you lost in one year (Total time lost for the three shows: 7 days, 0 hours, 25 minutes). Definitely an eye opener.

Simplifying,

Danny
