17,000 Push-Pin Super Mario 3 Mosiac

You know, sometimes you come across something that really makes you appreciate human ingenuity and dedication to a project. This isn't one of those.

What you're looking at it is a 17,000 push-pin mosaic mural, a product of three revisions and a total of two and a half semesters of work. The final revision took a whopping two months of work by the CIS Student Association at the University of the Fraser Valley, and it's currently sitting in the Student Computing Center over there.

17,000 push-pins, wow -- impressive work! And, whether you like the piece or not, I think we can all agree that these kids should be expelled for ganking office supplies.

Hit the jump for several more of the craziness (including an in-progress shot), along with a link to the Flickr gallery.

Thanks to Mark, Laurel, and Marcus, who don't steal office supplies. Except pens and Post-Its, because, honestly, who can resist those?
