Man Spends 7 Years Drawing Incredibly Detailed Maze

This is the insanely detailed maze that Twitter user Kya7y's father spent nearly 7 years drawing some 30 years ago. That...is one hell of a hobby. For comparison, I used to doodle penises in the margin of my notebooks whenever I was bored in school. That and try to imagine my teachers naked. Mr. Edwards! Your wife must feel like one lucky lady.

When pressed for details, the father explained that he spent 7 years creating the map on A1 size paper, which is about 33 x 23 inches.


People have been asking @Kya7y about her father. Everyone seems to want to know more about the man behind this amazing maze. This morning she wrote, "Where does my father work? At a public university!! In the athletic department!!! As a janitor."

Oh man, when I was in college I made friends with my dorm's janitor. His name was Hobart, and he was a hell of a guy. It's weird thinking about him now and how fondly I remember talking to him. He would always swing by the room and drop off a latex glove with a half-smoked bowl of shwag and his Nascar lighter inside. He never even picked the seeds out of his crappy-ass weed. I probably learned more from that guy than every single class I took.

Hit the jump for some closeups.

Thanks to Alfi, who informed me there's never been a maze on the back of a cereal box he couldn't complete. Impressive!

    I think it'll be easier to piss of Neptune and let things proceed from there. I mean, it's a documented procedure...

  • Zach V

    When I was a kid I never understood how the minotaur could get trapped in the labyrinth because the most complex mazes I'd ever seen were on kid's menus and were therefore designed to be solved by children. I think I understand the story much better now.

  • That is just so beautiful.

  • Bobert

    Hey thats what people were doing before the internet.
    what were they doing? - USELESS SHIT.

  • The Moderator

    They're still doing useless shit as exeplified here by your ironic comment.

  • Bobert

    yeah because irony is only created BY ACCIDENT.

    like sarcasm, I GUESS.

    "Cocaine is a hell of a drug...."

  • Closet Nerd

    Kya7y's father is Matt Damon, from Good Will Hunting
    "How you like those apples?!"
    .... just sayin

  • General maze-solving rule: Place your right hand on the wall at the start and just follow it around as you walk. It may take longer, but eventually you WILL find the exit.

    Though somehow I get the feeling that wouldn't help you much with this one.

  • that rule only applies to linear mazes. I have seen many if fails on.

  • Idlethoughts

    Linear? I'm not even sure if that thing is euclidian.

  • McfeelySmackup

    Keep telling yourself that as you are endlessly looping, not having realized the right hand corridor connects back 100 feet where you came from.

  • Mike

    Ha!

  • Waste

    And gets nothing but internet fame for an hour.
