    Spiky towers are the talk of the highway | desmoinesregister.com | The Des Moines Register

    "Council Bluffs, Ia. - Art lovers hoped to provoke a discussion about public art when they commissioned a $3 million set of metal sculptures titled "Odyssey" at the 24th Street interchange on Interstate Highway 29/80 near the Iowa-Nebraska border."

    Okay, standard stuff. But then, you get a look at these things:

    Looks like Prime took a wrong turn into Polyhex or something.

    Pshhh. That's nothing. My town is lined with Dark Energon. Or Meth crystals. Not sure which.

    That's pretty cool. Hope no tornados touch down near it or someone's getting impaled.

    3 million for some pointy metal spikes with spiralling protrudances on them? Sounds like the town got "screwed".

    Don't worry, the final releases will be made out of soft rubber, will be shorted, and will have orange safety caps on every spike.

    Passed by these things last night going from the Shopko on one end to the Arby's on the other. Still not quite sure what to make of them - I certainly don't think of anything remotely TF related when I see'em, though.
