This Scale Replica Mine-Clearing M4 Sherman Tank Is Made From LEGO

Built by LEGO enthusiast Tommy Styrvoky, this remote-controlled M4 Sherman Crab required two months of work to complete and comes in at 1/18th the size of the real deal.

Yesterday Australia’s Feliks Zemdegs managed to break the world record for solving a 7×7 Rubik’s Cube in just over two minutes and twenty-three seconds. For those of us who still have trouble just zipping up a jacket, watching him spin and unscramble this cube is incomprehensible.


He-Man's Battle Cat Is A Better Hunting Trophy Than Some Famous Lion

Throwing Ice Grenades Is Only Slightly Safer Than Tossing The Real Thing

We’ve all seen enough movies and war footage to know what happens after you toss a real grenade, but hurling one made from ice really isn’t that much safer. If you get hit with one of these, it’s going to hurt. And if it does explode, it’s going to send ice cold shrapnel flying in all directions.
