So when I read about this fellow, who made a forty thousand piece puzzle out of pictures taken from the Queen's diamond jubilee, only to watch it crumble in front of his eyes as he pressed in a tile that had come a teeny bit loose [link], I winced with second hand dismay.
You poor, poor bastard.
Can you imagine spending quite literally weeks on something like that, only to watch it fall apart and not be able to do anything to stop it? Luckily he was able to salvage portions of it, and he thinks it'll only take a few weeks to recreate the rest of it, but he must have been so upset.
His wife, according to one article I read, was less sympathetic about it all. When a reporter asked her what she thought about her poor hubby's masterpiece crumbling before his horrified eyes, she just started laughing and couldn't stop.
What does she do when he has serious problems? Kick him in the shins?
Seriously though, go watch the video below. It's one of those train wreck situations. You know it's coming, you know you're going to cringe, but you just can't look away.
