Every good little girl and boy is going to want one of these this Christmas. Hoverbikes, which at this point is just a chair and handlebars attached to four drones, are unequivocally cool, even when this Russian company calls them "Hoversurf."

This is designed to be an "extreme sports" vehicle, a type of flying motocross bike thing. But I'm still waiting for something more like this:

How did you celebrate the New Year? Get drunk? Thought so.

Well, not to make you feel bad, but this dude put together a 200,000-piece Lego Rooster for a Lego float to celebrate the Chinese New Year and the Year of the Rooster.

Commissioned by the Hong Kong Tourism Board, the rooster stands at six-and-a-half feet tall (that’s taller than my dad!) and took five people a month and a half to complete.

Andy Hung, Hong Kong’s only certified Lego Professional builder says, "I wanted to use Lego pieces that resonate with people from the East and impress my audience.

Congratulations, Andy, you’ve succeeded. Now get on that float and take a bow.

I'm not in the business of telling people how to do their jobs, but if you're an elected official and want to instill trust in your constituents, show up with a Captain America shield.

Lan Diep proudly wore a Captain America shield on his arm while taking the oath of office this week. 

Dan Liep says there's "no metaphor."

“Except that it represents America’s ideals and I do hope to aspire to those ideals of fair play, equal justice, and democracy during my term,” Diep said. “But really, I just had this awesome shield and I wanted a chance to show it off.”

So wear that shield. Your constituents will either love you or think you don't take this job seriously at all. One or the other!

Look, when you throw an egg on the ground, it cracks. When you open a faucet, water comes out, not a dish owel. Finally, when you throw a bowling ball down a flight of stairs, it doesn't magically float up into the air. That's the way this works. 

Well, tell that to "For Approval" by Mainframe North, who seems to think that the laws of gravity don't apply to them. Check it out and be furious and amazed:

Oh, hell yeah. 

Now, I know this footage of firefighters using jetskis and jetpacks to put out fires will make you want to set one of your own, but don't. These firefighters are only in Dubai, and you have to be by the water to get one. If you're trapped in a burning high rise, I hope you like yourself extra crispy because that's an original recipe for pain.

So while you shouldn't go setting fires of your own, you should check out these jetpack firefighters in action because they are so sick.

Namaste, get into your downward dog positions, and crack open a cold one. Class is in session. 

Perhaps in an effort to get beer drinkers and hell raisers into the ancient art of meditative stretching, a German Yoga studio has created a form of yoga mixed with barley and hops. BierYoga, the German Beer Yoga studio, combines "The joy of drinking beer and the mindfulness of yoga compliment each other, and make for an energizing experience," according to their website.

Now with a studio opening in Australia, Beer Yoga has crossed international waters. Check it out and sign me up.

There are few things cooler than slow motion. Well, maybe fast motion, like on Benny Hill.

Anyway, things moving in fast or slow mo always looks cool. Like, for instance, check out this video from the Slow Mo Guys. They filmed a hammer smashing a mirror at 120,000 frames per seconds, slowed it down, and lived in every moment. It’s really cool.

I wish I could be that cool. Unfortunately, I move like a normal person, how ever fast that is. Sigh. Life is bad.

To make it better, here's some fast motion:
