In the summer of 2012, high school senior Zak Zeibel was asked to create “a piece of art that would reveal something unseen”. To wit:

Ziebell approached 29 strangers on the University of Michigan’s campus, handed them a pen and half a sheet of paper, and asked them, on the spot, to draw a map of the world. Ziebell, who recently posted his findings to Reddit, then completed the task himself and digitally merged the 30 maps into one image, overlaying the composite drawing with satellite data.

No really.

Ten thousand visas every year.

In a major breakthrough Massachusetts Senator [and former Cosmo centrefold] Scott Brown said the Irish E3 visa bill  which he filed is “about to pop” on Capitol Hill. The Republican Senator has said it is possible it will pass as soon as this week.

Speaking to the Boston Herald Brown stated “It really addresses something that’s been wrong and provides a legal path for citizenship,” said Brown, who said his bi-partisan workmanship could make this bill happen.

The bill would allow 10,000 Irish a year to come on two-year work visas that could then be renewed every two years.
