Minimum Wage Machine

8:34 am | writes:

Artist Blake Fall-Conroy created the Minimum Wage Machine:

“The minimum wage machine allows anybody to work for minimum wage. Turning the crank will yield one penny every 5.04 seconds, for $7.15 an hour (NY state minimum wage). If the participant stops turning the crank, they stop receiving money. The machine’s mechanism and electronics are powered by the hand crank, and pennies are stored in a plexiglas box.”

Evel Knieval You Are Not, Son

Demonstrating the greatest possible distance between “hero” and “fan” is this ad for Evel Knieval’s line of popsicle molds. One the top you have cool-as-anything Evel; on the bottom you have the “I PUT ROCKET SHIP IN MY MOUTH?!?” kid. Priceless.
