How Original!

Awwww! Looks like one of the graffiti babies in NYC got disgruntled and pissed off about the constant police state of the city. Way to be original, man!

Lifehack: Render Security Cameras Useless

Designed by fellow New Yorker and Brooklyn-based artist William Lamson, this lifehack is probably the easiest way to eliminate a public security camera. First, you’ll need a helium-filled balloon and some string. A weight won’t hurt either. Get the balloon full of static electricity and then raise it up to the camera.
