If art is your drug of choice, you'll appreciate these wonderful print ads from Team Detroit for the College for Creative Studies. Each parodies the kind of overwrought, family-in-crisis anti-drug PSAs that we're all so familiar with. The spoofs work so well, of course, because many parents do see art as an unhealthy choice, an addiction liable to lead their offspring to nothing but starvation and despair.

So Good. Click here for more cherry-popping fun, including this interaction:
WOMAN: [On seesaw] I'm scared! [Cut to walking in a field] I think that you should take a shower first, and then I'll take a shower. Then I'll put on my lingerie. Then I'll come into the room.
MAN: And I'll have a surprise waiting for you!
WOMAN: But I'll have a surprise waiting for you and we'll have our robes on and we'll slowly take our robes off and then do foreplay and [Woman makes grunting sounds on the seesaw] then have sex! [Back on seesaw] Ow, it hurts!

While Adam and Eve caused the entire fall of man by eating an apple, our prehistoric ancestors may have eaten some rotting fruit off the ground that contributed to the development of civilization as we know it. The fermented fruit contained mankind's first taste of alcohol, and mankind has yet to stop chasing the buzz.
Complex has the complete history.

On May 1, 1947, Evelyn McHale leapt to her death from the observation deck of the Empire State Building. A photograph of the scene, taken by Robert Wiles, appeared a couple of weeks later in Life magazine accompanied by the following caption:
On May Day, just after leaving her fiancé, 23-year-old Evelyn McHale wrote a note. 'He is much better off without me ... I wouldn't make a good wife for anybody,' ... Then she crossed it out. She went to the observation platform of the Empire State Building. Through the mist she gazed at the street, 86 floors below. Then she jumped. In her desperate determination she leaped clear of the setbacks and hit a United Nations limousine parked at the curb. Across the street photography student Robert Wiles heard an explosive crash. Just four minutes after Evelyn McHale's death Wiles got this picture of death's violence and its composure.
