Artist Takes Balloon Twisting To The Next Level With These Sculptures

Like, who would have thought balloon twisting could be an art? I, for one, never, until I saw Masayoshi Matsumoto’s work of art.

It happens when one flushes the toilet without keeping the lid close. Apparently, vapors containing fecal matter get airborne, spreading as far as 9 feet. Holy shit. They are not serious that we have been shoving shit into our mouths, are they? Continue reading Rouse Case: A Toothbrush And Case That’s Anti-Bacterial And Sustainable
