Who would have known that one can use newspapers to create art? The inventive artist Nick Georgiou from Queens, NY, is folding different newspapers to create sculptures and other installations. The sculptures are usually placed in public so you may have seen them around in New York City, but some of his pieces are also for indoor exhibition like the ones he has framed in to look like paintings.
The artist himself loves to transform printed words into something else because he thinks it’s a way of giving new life to newspapers, as well as books.
By now everyone knows how catastrophic the BP oil spill was to not only America but the Earth itself. Barrels among barrels of oil were released into the ocean waters and at the same time, money was flying out of BP’s pocket. So just how much money did this whole oil spill cost BP? It is estimated to be in the 100 billion dollar range, yes I said billion. So it is always fun to look at the crazy amount of shit BP could have used that money on instead of pumping it into the oil spill clean up. These numbers will blow your mind, check it out.
We here at zootpatrol love Hennessy, a lot. So when we heard Henny came out with a flask we pretty much shit our pants instantly. Hennessy just launched these limited edition Hennessy V.S. flask sleeves, a “first of its kind, protected by a silicon “skin” which can be found in a variety of vibrant, stylish colors including red, yellow, purple, and green.” Nice touches with the Hennessy script forming in the inside texture and the grape vine pattern of the label is echoed around the front of the sleeve. When you pull the top back, it pretty much looks like your flask is wearing a hoodie. Currently available in NY, NJ, RI, and CT, the will become available throughout the US through the summer. Check out more images below.

If you missed the first part we posted back in April, you can check it out here. Part 2 is just as good as the first if not better. For those who haven’t seen the first, this is pretty much an exact interpretation of how girls act when they get together. The accuracy of this is mind blowing, and it had me laughing throughout the whole video, definitely a must see. Girls don’t you see how ridiculous you are?

What makes the ultimate man? The folks at AskMen.com decided to find out. Between May and July, they surveyed 100,000 men and asked them “who is the modern man?”. I have to say, I agree with just about everything on this infograph, minus the tracking your partner with a GPS. If you need to spy on your girlfriend, then maybe she shouldnt be your girlfriend. I think a simple, “maybe we shouldnt see each other any more”, would be a lot easier than employing James Bonds personal assistant to spy on your GF while she shops for fresh mint at the local market. Thats just me though. Ya know, a non psycho male.

So with some hope finally appearing in the Gulf of Mexico and seemingly the end to the largest oil spill the U.S. has ever seen I thought it would be interesting to see the comparison to other oil spills throughout history. The rest of the world sure isn’t changing anytime soon but with any luck the gulf spill will be seen as a catalyst moment in history that broke the way for the U.S. to move to cleaner energy.

Worst Oil Spill Ever: Arabian Gulf/Kuwait – January 19, 1991
Location: Persian Gulf, Kuwait
Amount of Oil Spilled: 380-520 million gallons
Ironically, the worst oil spill in human history wasn’t an accident. During the Gulf War, Iraqi forces, attempting to thwart a potential landing of American soldiers, opened the valves at an offshore oil terminal and dumped oil from several tankers. The oil they released created a 4-inch thick oil slick that covered 4000 square miles. To put it in perspective, that’s enough oil to cover the entire state of Rhode Island one foot deep in oil.
Now while I don’t support cops beating the shit out of people and acting like asshole, I can see why they are so angry and aggressive when they get some real action. You never hear about all the bullshit calls and complaints cops receive on a daily basis, and here is a collection of just a few complaints that will blow your mind. Judging from this collection most are complaints about dumb college kids acting like, well, dumb college kids. Every complaint and call needs to be taken seriously by the police, and when you look at these you can see why when officers actually get a call worth beating some ass over, they take full advantage. For the most part though it seems liek cops have to deal with the most ridiculous complaints on Earth.
