Seems like things much bigger than 3 would get messy, but duuude.
Our education system is messed up, man. This could help so many people but I’d never even heard of it.
Aiba, a former maze illustrator, founded his own company in 1981 and expanded his practice as an “art director for architectural spaces.” In this new role, Aiba showcases his knowledge of maze illustration and architecture by creating intricately detailed, miniature, worlds wrapped around bonsai trees, lighthouses, cliffs, and constructed on vertical islands. His works explore our involvement with the environment and his use of the bonsai recalls the Japanese tradition of the bonsai as a work of art. Expressing “the magnificence of nature,” Aiba’s inclusion of the bonsai in this series is seen as almost an act of updating history as various narratives can be drawn from each individual detail in his works.
In addition, Aiba uses a variety of materials to craft these installations, including craft paper, plastic, plaster, and paint.
For more information about Aiba’s work, please visit his website.

Thanks, NPR. Really. A for effort.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but I kinda got the impression that the Olympics are held in a different city each time. And are viewed all over the world. And that sometimes—I know, this is shocking!—sometimes the games and the people watching the games aren’t in the same time zone.
For the longest time, there was nothing we could do about this! Back in 2008, if I wanted to see Michael Phelps compete, I had to wake up at 2:00am to watch NBC’s live broadcast. And since different events were happening throughout the day, I basically just lived in front of my TV. (But hey, we’re talking the Olympics here, so work was totally okay with me doing that. Necessary sacrifices and all that.)
But now—what’s this? Broadcasting events with a time delay? Ye gods! This is the first time that has ever happened! No wonder all the newscasters are flubbing things up and spoiling results! They’ve never had to cope with this before! Ever!
