Way to Be Supportive 

For whatever reason, I’ve always been fascinated with hedge mazes. Perhaps you enjoy puzzles, or maybe you just like The Shining, but it’s distinctly possible you’re interested in hedge mazes too. If so, you’ll be interested to see what Italian publisher Franco Maria Ricci has created:

Soon to be the world's largest maze.

The maze is now nearly done, and set to open in 2012, fulfilling Ricci’s long-time dream of creating the world’s largest. However, when Ricci first told a friend about his plans, decades ago, he did not exactly receive a supportive response.

The former publisher said he first confided his ambition to Jorge Luis Borges, who characteristically told him the world’s largest maze already existed and was called a desert.

Jorge Luis Borges was kind of a dick.
