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:

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.

woman on twitter turns refrigerator water dispenser into wine dispenser

While most people in their 20s want credit for acting even remotely like adults, one woman has gone above and beyond what’s asked of someone being a grown up.

After ordering a new refrigerator, Clare decided to risk life and water filter by turning her fridge into a wine dispenser. All it took was a bottle of wine and the cold water filter in her fridge. Simply tilt the bottle into the water dispenser and out comes wine. Life hacks made easy.

It takes a proud adult to risk ruining a brand-new fridge with a move like this, so we commend you, Clare. However, perhaps sensing the immense power at their finger tips, Clare and her boyfriend switched the filter back to water. They told Buzzfeed that their fridge and filter is fine, but what about the copycats? What of the poor filters that will be inevitably be ruined due to the sugary content of wine. Those tubes are going to be sticky for generations.
