Banksy Sells His Art to the Public

…And you won’t believe for how much. Something unusual happened this past weekend in New York City’s Central Park. Banksy solicited an anonymous man to sell some of his artwork for next to nothing and by nothing I mean $60 US which is considered nothing when you learn that his original paintings go for $42,400 each. #baller. The man selling the paintings didn’t even get his first hire until hours later because everyone walking past him thought that he was selling counterfeits. The ones that did make a purchase, however, walked away with a serious find!

German photographer Christopher Thomas must have been conducting stakeouts because he has managed to compose a book of photographers proving that the city does sleep after all. After nearly a decade of snapping these rare shots, he has managed to capture notable sights with not one single person in them.

Double Take

Ever seen or heard something that made you go wtf? I’m not talking my business calculus class that I already don’t understand… I mean REALLY.

But every once in a while you come across something totally unexplainable. When you tell your friends they give you a skeptical look.

Cue your response before that even happens, “And I am NOT lying!”

There’s a website that displays all of these truly treasured moments.

And I am NOT lying

Central Park, Manhattan

Brooklyn, New York

Nice one…

Okay I apologize the intro statement I just did was absolutely terrible. My bad.

But here’s my example of my very own “And I am NOT lying!”
