Jobless man builds a house out of $1.82 billion worth of shredded money By Tecca | Today in Tech
What would you do with $1.82 billion worth of shredded money? In Ireland, people build houses out of it at least that's what Dublin-based artist Frank Buckley did. The unemployed artist originally wanted to create a gallery for his series of mixed-media artworks called "Expressions of Recession," but he ended up building a house instead.
Buckley has been working roughly 12 hours a day every day since the beginning of December. During the early part of the construction process, he made bricks out of the decommissioned Euros Ireland's mint lent him. In all, around 50,000 money bricks went into building the house that consists of a bedroom, a bathroom, and a living room. He plans to continue expanding the house that sits on an empty office building to include a kitchen, a shower, and a patio. http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/technology- … 27289.html well this is the definition of irony?
