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.

Have you ever wanted to safely stare death in the face and laugh? Now you can. 

Sitting atop Mount Langya in Hebei, China, a glass bridge and observation platform allows you to look down at the 1,476 foot drop below. No cables or harnesses necessary, you can get to the top of Langya by cable car and a 40-minute walk. It's that easy for you to risk it all with minimal risk. 

However, this is the closest I will ever come to this thing:
