That's not art... THIS is art

Modern art today is nothing but the evolution from previous imitation of Greek and Roman interior decorators. That doesn't make it bad - I like interior decoration.

Why artists feel their views on topics that are however actually important, such as politics, are worth listening to is beyond me. I don't hang on every word my interior decorator says on politics. I'd rather listen to my taxi driver.

But this (which is not about politics) is highly cool:

Ukrainian protestors build, use, then lose trebuchet

Coolest thing in political violence since 9/11...

Riot police use testudo formation...

...but eventually lose anyway...
