Chalk Drawings? No way!

The pictures below are REAL chalk drawings. They are designed to look 3D.

Julian Beever has made pavement drawings for over ten years. Anamorphic illusions drawn in a special distortion in order to create an impression of 3 dimensions when seen from one particular viewpoint.

The guy on the right is real, the left...all chalk.

The Swimming-Pool picture again, except viewed from the "wrong" side. These drawings only work from one viewpoint otherwise the image appears strangely distorted.

This is off of one of my favorite picture blogs.

Urban Dictionary

Ever wonder what the words mean in all those rap songs you know?


A mixture of the word crazy and drunk:

I wanna go to a party and get crunk.

The word in Yiddish means "sick," and was brought into the Southern Black vernacular through the presence of European Jewish immigrant shopkeepers in black neighborhoods in cities such as Atlanta. Contrary to popular belief, crunk is actually the words "crazy" and "funk" put together. It is not as recent a word as many think; it has been used in rap as early as 1995, but it was popularized by Lil Jon and the Eastside Boyz much more recently.
