These pre-destroyed sneakers are only $1425/pair

There are some things I will never understand. This pair of high-tops by “Paris-based fashion house” Maison Margiela is definitely one of them.

Looking like something the cat dragged in (after ripping it apart with its claws for hours), these heavily-distressed, pre-destroyed –sorry “Future Destroyed”– sneakers will set you back $1,425/pair. Oops sorry, you’re out of luck, they’re already sold out of them over at Neiman Marcus.

Instead, may I suggest you go find a nice wood chipper and mangle a pair for yourself? (I checked, the majority of wood chippers out there are cheaper than these sneakers.)

Alarm clock dropped inside wall still going off daily after 13 years

Thirteen years ago, Pittsburgh’s Jerry Lynn carefully lowered an alarm clock on a string, lowering it into a wall from the floor above, part of a cunning plan to identify where to drill a hole by waiting for the alarm to go off. Unfortunately, the string snapped, and the clock’s been going off daily ever since.
