Graffiti Artists Turned This School Dormitory Into A Work Of Art

Why can’t every dorm look like this?

This summer, school administrators at the Cité Internationale Universitaire in Paris decided to get a little creative with several buildings due for major renovations. In conjunction with the Rehab 2 Festival, graffiti artists let loose on the space, creating intricate murals, elaborate scenery, and almost too-real portraits spanning entire hallways. With just three weeks to complete their projects, the artists turned around visually stunning masterpieces that might cause you to rethink the benefit of the school’s renovation plans.


According to My Modern Met, locals are able to view the incredible display for a month before construction workers begin their own, more formal improvements. Luckily for those of us who can’t make it to Paris in time, Jonk of Jonk Photography shared photos of the transformed space on Facebook for our viewing pleasure. If you ever fantasized about going to an alien-infested spaceship to learn algebra, now’s your chance to see that vision come to life. Check out the photos above to see what I mean.

Last Friday, GOOD reported on an infuriating incident that went down at a Massachusetts Target.

A Target manager who's come to be known as "Target Tori," was harassed by Twitter troll David Leavitt for not selling him an $89 Oral-B Pro 5000 toothbrush for a penny.

He describes himself as a "multimedia journalist who has worked for CBS, AXS, Yahoo, and others."

Anyone who has ever worked in retail knows that the worst thing about the job, right after the pay, are the unreasonable cheapskates who "want to talk to your manager" to get some money off an item.

They think that throwing a tantrum will save them a few bucks and don't care if they completely embarrass themselves in the process. Sometimes that involves belittling the poor employee who's just trying to get through their day with an ounce of dignity.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

In a typical work day, people who smoke take more breaks than those who do not. Every few hours they pop outside to have a smoke and usually take a coworker with them.

Don Bryden, Managing director at KCJ Training and Employment Solutions in Swindon, England, thinks that nonsmokers and smokers should be treated equally, so he's giving those who refrain from smoking four extra days to compensate.

Funny enough, Bryden is a smoker himself.
