Pictures Worth More Than 1000 Words (20 images)

There are times when we look at a picture and straight-up have to pause. Our head tilts, eyes squint, and we wonder what in the world happened to lead this cat to get up onto an umbrella. There's no way to know, of course, since sometimes, all that we have is the picture. So, we are left with having to come up with our own story, and stories about these kinds of amazing pictures can never be covered in anything less than 1000 words. 

As animal lovers, these kinds of pictures are our favorites, because there is nothing that we appreciate more than a creativity boost, and these pictures deliver inspiration like nothing else we've seen. And so we made it a mission to find these kinds of pictures every single week and share them with you so that you may enjoy some of that creativity and inspiration as well.

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.

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:

This guy was really playing with fire when it came to how close he took his drone to that train. Literally flew it into a moving boxcar at one point. That could've ended up being a complete disaster.

Pictures Worth More Than 1000 Words (20 images)

There are certain pictures that, when you look at, you feel absolutely speechless. Those pictures, a lot of times, are the most incredible ones. They make you think, they make you wonder about all the details that led to that weird, funny, beautiful, or simply wholesome moment. And words, even 1000 words, are not enough to describe them.

Those kinds of pictures are some of our favorites because they truly get our imagination running. So, every single week, we bring you a new collection of pictures like that in the hope that they inspire you as much as they inspire us, that they give you the creative energy that we all thrive on. 

Fun tip for this week's list: not everything that is a leaf is a leaf.

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:
