A Japanese janitor secretly drew an incredibly intricate maze over a period of seven years.
The following photographs might make you dizzy.
Japanese Twitter user @Kya7y set the Twittersphere abuzz when she shared a maze her father drew 30 years ago. Hand-drawn onto A1 sized paper (33 by 23 inches), the dizzying, hyper complex sequence of twisting, knotting, over- and under-lapping tubes took her father seven years to complete. Seven very, very, disciplined years.
Call it persistence or call it obsession, the resulting maze is aesthetically interesting for the same reasons it’s likely to drive whoever decides to navigate his way through it mad. The story behind the man behind the maze? He works at a public university. In the athletic department. As a janitor.

Believe it or not, this cabin isn’t a joint venture between Ron Swanson and the American Pickers crew.
While at first glance The Sunset House appears to be a joint venture between Ron Swanson and the American Pickers crew, the rural West Virginia cabin was in fact built by a young couple with a serious jones for wood-working and picking.
Made almost entirely of reclaimed materials, the cabin sits atop a rolling hill and has expansive views of the surrounding countryside thanks to a facade constructed from windows that were sourced from local barns, houses, and junk yards.
Our buddy and editor-in-chief over at Silodrome tells us about a vintage Ferrari that boyhood dreams are made of.
This post was written by our buddy James McBride over at Silodrome, one of our favorite blogs. Head on over there and dive head first into some gasoline culture that spans motorcycles, cars, boats and cool gear.
This stunning 1952 Ferrari 225 Sport Berlinetta is not only one of the very first Berlinettas made by Ferrari, but it's also amongst the first Ferrari road cars manufactured by the now famous Maranello factory, which at the time had only been building non-race cars for five short and tumultuous years.
Berlinetta, Italian for "little saloon", went on to become a commonly used term to describe a coupé with serious sporting intent. It has since been used by automakers around the world seeking to add a little Italian flavour to their 2-door models, including a late '70s Chevrolet Camaro, a few Maseratis and even a German Opel.

This house transforms into an impenetrable fortress at the click of a button. But if we’ve learned anything the movies, the safe house is never safe.
Intruders can't even come close to this house. Not unless they manage to make it through a six-and-half foot wall of concrete. And a series of security clearances. Yes, this home has actual security clearances.
Though it may look like and sound like one, this is no government building or top secret lab. The Safe House, designed by Polish design group KWK Promes, and located in a small village on the outskirts of Warsaw, is a concrete home/fortress with a transformative twist.
Ernest Hemingway’s house in Key West, Florida was a little slice of man heaven.
When you think of men of great influence, Ernest Hemingway surely tops the list. Hemingway lived in many places throughout his life, and we've always wondered what it would be like to take a peek into one of the homes of this iconic author. See what he saw as he looked up from his typewriter and took a sip of scotch, that kind of thing.
World’s coolest butcher shop?
Talk about a holistic transformation.
With the help of the Japanese design team Design Eight, a 60-year-old butcher shop in old town Kamakura was recently renovated and brought into the 21st century, garnering international acclaim and design awards along the way.
Back in the 1930s, traveling axe salesmen would shave with an axe to show the superiority of their product.
Pick up any men's magazine and you'll see that vintage and heritage products are all the rage these days. This wave of nostalgia has breached all men's categories, including shaving, which has seen a resurgence in straight razors and safe razors. Yet, there's another even more analog alternative that hasn't yet hit the mainstream: axe shaving.
200 calories broken down by various foods. Holy broccoli!
We're not calorie counters here, but this photo project by the inquisitive folks over at wiseGeek helped us wrap our head around the whole calorie thing by showcasing what 200 calories actually looks like in terms of food, rather than numbers. The quick takeaway: holy broccoli.
American buffalo viewed phone poles as giant backscratchers, and took down much of the early infrastructure.
Today, we blame dropped calls on spotty coverage from our service providers and the insufficient battery lives of our phones, but early settlers in the West had to deal with an even more maddening culprit: buffalo looking to scratch their butt.
Not a bad place to spend a morning reading the paper and enjoying a cup of coffee.
A first here on Huckberry: an entire blog post inspired by and devoted to a kitchen. I know, but…
Located in the heart of Cape Town, South Africa, Rupert Smith and Warren Matthee's renovated Victorian house features a kitchen that's industrial, minimalistic, and best of all, opens up into a courtyard and plunge pool.
