What's cool to you might not be cool to the next person, so make sure you really have a good idea what is in, and what is out.

This guy got challenged to make music with bricks, so he went ahead and played The Weeknd's "Blinding Lights" with bricks. Um, that's amazing. Had no idea that was possible.

Trees That Appeared To Eat Stuff

Trees just keep on growing, man. Sometimes they end up growing around other objects placed in their vicinity. This can result in it looking like trees are a bunch of hungry fellas, just trying to enjoy a meal. Fun stuff.

Tumblr Thread: "Ask" People and "Guess" People

Depending on how you grew up, you might be the type of person who just asks for stuff and is fine taking no for an answer, or you might be the type of person who wasn't brought up to say no and lives in a world of more passive expectations. Either way, the theory helps explain why both groups have such a hard time communicating. Foranother weird psychological thing, here's a guy's discovery that different people have different internal monologues.

This is Ask Culture. In Guess Culture, you avoid putting a request into words unless you're pretty sure the answer will be yes. Guess Culture depends on a tight net of shared expectations. A key

People's Really Nice Or Horrible Celeb Encounters

Celebrity encounters can be a magical time where people cross paths with their heroes, and those heroes actually kind of live up to the hype. Other times though, it's a moment when one realizes that celebrities (even the "heroic ones") are just like any other human being. Often full of emotions, complications, thoughts, etc. If anything, some of those celebs might just be hurting for an opportunity to bond with another human being on a basic human being level, with no society enforced roles being played. 

People describe their nicest or most unpleasant encounters with celebs | WatchTheBoom 20h 2 Awards ran into Adam Sandler outside Planet Fitness Brooklyn early 2016.

This guy manages to turn pieces of trees into everyday objects. In this case, we get to watch a piece of a tree be transformed into a coffee mug. Pretty cool.

Live stand-up comedy is a hard thing to do during a nationwide quarantine. This particular approach has audience members drive in and tune in to a particular radio station tuned to each comic's mic. To get some real-time feedback there's the policy of "honk when you laugh." It's weird to see a parking lot full of cars honking and have it be a good thing, but the idea is definitely a creative solution to the issue of holding a live event.
