Flesh-rending monofilament bouncy house

You know - for kids!

When the volume deflates, the ropes get loose and lay on the ground enabling compression of the installation. When the object inflates, the ropes tense to a perfect line again, strained enough to carry the weight of a human being. Bodies entrapped in 3D grid, flying in unnatural positions throughout superficial white space, resemble Dadaist collages. Impossibility of perception of scale and direction results in simultaneous feeling of immenseness and absence of space.

Cube was a really underrated movie.

Willie Brown Bridge: A Political Boss Marks His Territory

Rechristening a perfectly good bridge after the city's most ostentatious influence-peddler, a man who now wields more power than he did as an elected official with none of the pesky accountability, has been deemed "controversial."

It's not.

For that to be the case, there would have to be some controversy. But, other than the NAACP officials who proposed renaming the bridge after Brown, it's hard to conceive of anyone wanting this. Other than the state lawmakers who obeisantly rammed through the legislation honoring the former "Ayatollah of the Assembly" with rapidity befitting an oncoming hurricane and near-unanimous votes recalling Soviet parliamentary procedures, it's hard to think of anyone who thinks this is necessary.

And yet, it happened.
