I’ve done some pretty stupid things in my life, but nothing like filling an entire street full of firecrackers. But someone obviously had to liven things up at a festival in Taiwan, so why not use as many firecrackers as possible?

Verder Met Wonen, a Dutch brokerage firm, has come up with an utterly unique way of selling houses to prospective buyers. They installed a wooden roller coaster that runs throughout the house (we’re talking about different levels here) and while seated in the little carriage, you get to view the different rooms within as well as the exterior of the house being sold.
You can grab yourself a regular fish tank or you can grab yourself the Flying Fish Bowl by Yael Mer and Shay Alkalau of Raw Edges.

Remember that scene in Beauty and the Beast when Belle and the Beast dance in the ballroom underneath a magical chandelier? That was great Disney work.

Whew that was a close one! Several stray puppies recently got stranded on a 590-ft tall bridge at the Shiniuzhai Scenic Spot in China.
