    I'm always amazed at how some of the paintings and other artwork at museums are so poorly protected from vandals

    One time I went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC and touched 100's of million of dollars worth of paintings. I went with a friend of mine who was an art student. I would move my hand and gesture about the paint strokes and touched each one. Renoir, Rembrandt. Picasso, Dali, I almost flicked off a chip of paint of a Van Gogh too. :c

    I got kicked out of a museum in Munich because I accidentally touched a painting and it moved and set of an alarm. The krauts were watching me out the window all the way down the street. I thought they were going to lock me up.

    It's just unique works of art that are worth millions of dollars. People take it too serious and get butthurt like fags... Culture and humanity and future generations: PWNed!!! :c

    Vandals should have their hands chopped off. Word gets out, problem solved.
