Since buildings are constantly exposed to the elements, it’s only natural that they slowly get worn down and have to undergo renovations sooner or later. However, sometimes renovators get a little carried away, and instead of restoring the old buildings to their former glory, end up producing monstrosities that leave us scratching our heads.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
