Not all milkcrate news is positive. The top photo is the aftermath of a crash where the two victims were sitting and talking in Florida. The one man was sitting on a milkcrate talking with a friend who was sitting in the chair. –> via NewsSun.com, Week in Photos Gallery
The second photo is of an unknown woman who was killed crossing the street with her walker. She is described as 5’3″ tall, weighing around 110 pounds with gray hair and brown eyes. She was walking with a metallic red walker, and had a gray milk crate attached to the walker. –> via MyFoxTampaBay.com, Who was this accident victim?
Greg at DaddyTypes.com sent this amazing story over. The world-famous Farnsworth House has been saved by milkcrates.

I’ve written about this duo before and I’ve been saving this project for a sunny day. Winter/Hoerbelt’s 2003 project at the Beaufort Exhibition, in Belgium. This crate tunnel may not be dairy crates, but it’s damn impressive. –> translated article about the piece, and the photos page

So, a double stack of good ole’ milkcrates does the trick. –> Pigs.html (scroll down to May 28th)
