Husband Gave His Unfaithful Ex-Wife Half Of Everything He Owned – Literally (13 Pics)

Divorce settlements, which often force the two estranged spouses to split their belongings 50/50, can be both emotionally and financially painful. In an unambiguous and ironic gesture, one man in Germany told Laura, his ex-wife, just what he thought of her – by literally cutting all of their belongings in half!

The man is clearly experienced with the power tools that he has, because he’s actually done a great job of methodically and neatly destroying all of their stuff – everything from their teddy bear to their couch to their car has been sliced neatly in half. He is selling his half of everything on the eBay online auction site, where each item has a bitter but funny writeup in German detailing how the courts ordered him to ‘split’ their belongings even though he seems to suggest that Laura had been unfaithful.

We must assume that there’s a rather upset woman named Laura somewhere in Germany trying to figure out what to do with her half of a mailbox.

“The car is quite well preserved for its age, but there are some signs of wear. In particular, half is missing”

“In my opinion, this conversion is the perfect solution for users who want to save space, but can not afford a MacBook Air”

“The wheel moves despite minor limitations, and the front brake engages perfectly”
“Unlike my ex-wife, I cannot say anything bad about the bed, really, have always slept well in it”
“It’s the perfect phone for people who do not like to make calls”
“The chairs are super as an art installation”
“There’s no need for cuddling stuffed animals – for such things, there are affectionate co-workers”
“Watching TV alone is already depressing enough. The device is very compact and has several inputs, but am not sure whether they all work”
“In recent years, I’ve spent many beautiful evenings on this sofa with my woman. She did not find the evenings so beautiful, which is why my ex-wife now sits on another couch”
“Whoever wonders where the second half is may want to check with my ex-wife”
“I offer here, in my opinion, the best REM album… “Everybody Hurts” (how true !!!) and Nightswimming are the best passages on it yet”
“Unfortunately, I can offer only half… But no matter, I have made sure that the best sketches are on my half”
“It is considerably smaller and more manageable. In addition, you will finally be at peace with this phone: It is guaranteed not to ring and vibrate and will not play music”

A Graffiti Artist And An Exasperated City Worker's Hilarious Exchange Over A Year (28 Pics)

We're not condoning vandalism in any way, but you have to admit that graffiti can sometimes be very, very funny. Such was the case with street artist Mobstr, who rode past the building below for years on their morning commute. Mobstr noticed that the city had a rather strange method of removing graffiti from the building: they would paint over it in one area with red paint, but power wash the rest of the exposed brick.

The building, which would apparently get tagged enough to warrant a system of graffiti removal.

This gave Mobstr something to think about, and eventually, an experiment was designed to see what this "Mysterious Frontier of Red," as the project came to be known, was all about. "This prompted the start of an experiment. Unlike other works, I was very uncertain as to what results it would yield," Mobster explains. "Below is what transpired over the course of a year."

And thus began the experiment.

Another unrelated tagger also joined in.

True to form, the graffiti was painted over in red.

Time for Trial #2.

And so on.

This time, a third (also unrelated) tagger added to Mobstr's "RED."

Now things get interesting. Does the city dare venture out of the red border?

Not this time.

They're sticking to their M.O.

Maybe the pressure washer was in the shop?

And then...tradition is broken!

How alarming!

The city officials, now probably seething (if not laughing) were caught in action one day. It looks like the pressure washer is back.

Mobstr's insistence, combined with the squiggle on the other side, seem to cause the city to reach something of a breaking point.

"You want red? FINE, you get red!"

We have to say, the red paint job is kind of an improvement over the worn-out brick.

Of course, Mobstr had to get the last word, even if it was a concession.

We assume that the last message from Mobstr was also painted over in red, but the series ends here. It also goes to show how a little cheeky graffiti can actually get a shabby old building its own makeover, although that was probably just an unintended side effect.

5 Insane Facts You Need To Know About Getting Shot (5 pics)

The best thing you could do for yourself is to just try and avoid getting shot altogether. But if you do find yourself on the wrong end of a bullet, here are some things you need to know.

1. Placement is everything.
The size, speed, and bearing of the bullet, along with its place of entry, can make a world of difference in whether you survive or die. For example, getting shot on the left side of the heart will cause more internal bleeding than if you were shot on the right side.
