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.

There are few things that add more to a word than the placing the word “Rocket” in front of it. Well, maybe the word “Mania” or “Rama” behind it.

In this video, YouTubers The Backyard Scientists attempt to recreate a small scale version of a Mythbusters classic. They attached a blade to a track, light a rocket, and send through a toy car, a whole chicken, some fruit, and a steak. This is knife moves at 150 mph and could cut through anything.

Oh, and one time the knife blew up. It rocks.

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:

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.

I'm not in the business of telling people how to do their jobs, but if you're an elected official and want to instill trust in your constituents, show up with a Captain America shield.

Lan Diep proudly wore a Captain America shield on his arm while taking the oath of office this week. 

Dan Liep says there's "no metaphor."

“Except that it represents America’s ideals and I do hope to aspire to those ideals of fair play, equal justice, and democracy during my term,” Diep said. “But really, I just had this awesome shield and I wanted a chance to show it off.”

So wear that shield. Your constituents will either love you or think you don't take this job seriously at all. One or the other!

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.

There are certain pictures that, when you look at, you feel absolutely speechless. Those pictures, a lot of times, are the most incredible ones.

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.
