In 1982, An Artist Harvested Two Acres of Wheat on Land Worth $4.5 Billion

© Agnes Denes In the summer of 1982, two acres of wheat were planted and harvested by artist Agnes Denes, two blocks from Wall Street and the World Trade Center and facing the Statue of Liberty.

Guy Finds Cliff from the Clif Bar

Photograph via AnGabhaDubhon reddit Reddit user AnGabhaDubhon just shared this random photo of what looks to be the cliff from the popular Clif Bar packaging. According to another commentor, this looks to be the Superstition Mountains outside of Phoenix, Arizona.
