Would you like to get away from the stresses of the daily life for the next five to ten years? Then Norway's new Halden prison/spa is for you!
[...]every cell comes with a private bathroom and a flat-screen TV, as well as a view--the windows don't even have bars in them. But what about facilities, you might ask? My college dorm had a foosball table, and a vending machine! This prison can't match that, right? Wrong. Halden has a gym, training room, chapel, library, family visiting unit, football (possibly soccer) field, a school, and, most unbelievably, a sound studio. But it's the design that's most strikingly different from American prisons. Halden doesn't shy away from bright, cheerful colors, and actually spent about $1 million to hire a graffiti artist named Dolk (sort of their version of Banksy) to paint beautiful murals all around the grounds.

UPDATE: In the comments, Courageous Grace brings up a very good point. The prison opens on April 1. Is this a hoax?
