A Mona Lisa Wall Clock That Reconstructs the Masterpiece Over Time - http://gizmodo.com/a-mona-...

Violence Is Currency: A Pacifist Ex-Con's Guide To Prison Weaponry - http://theconcourse.deadspin.com/violenc...

Most shanks are made for one specific purpose and disposed of immediately thereafter; getting caught with one is a year in solitary. Read more...
