Pretty much anyone who grew up anywhere had their minds blown in middle school when they found out about M.C. Escher: The crows that turned into doves, the stairs that went to nowhere, the hands drawing each other. It's just an inevitability of adolescence that you will find out about M.C. Escher and you will think he is awesome. Also inevitable: One of his drawings will grace your dorm room wall after a massive poster sale in the student union during your freshman year. It will hang on the wall opposite a pennant of your school's team and catty-corner your older sister's poster of the Beatles. It just happens. Today's Escher's birthday, and we've assembled some of our favorite kegger conversation starters in celebration.
