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:

Scientists captured video of these beautiful sea creatures off the coast of Puerto Rico. Some of these weird and stunning animals are so new that they haven't been named yet. Marine science experts of all kinds were able to watch the videos as they were streamed online in real time and discuss the findings in a chatroom.

Yes, Beer Yoga is Real. Yes, It Will Get You Up at 8 on a Saturday Morning

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.

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.

Look at that poise, that grace, that "Deal With It" attitude that can only be described in a single adjective: SWAG.
