TwitterFacebook

You might want to put your beer down for this.

It was raided by authorities in Dongguan, a city in Guangzhou, south China, early this month.

Footage from the factory has emerged since, and has started going viral. It’s not hard to see why; in the clips, workers dunk used cans into a tub of beer with their bare hands to fill them up:

The filled cans are then sent down a conveyor belt to get sealed: 

According to local reports, the factory was churning out 600,000 cartons of fake beer a month, although it hasn’t been specified how long it was operating. Read more…

TwitterFacebook

Let’s not equivocate — let’s set off an honest, lasso-approved truth bomb, shall we?

Critics went positively nuts for Wonder Woman.

There’s just no way to un-sugarcoat this: As savagely as movie reviewers treated Suicide Squad — as much as we all sharpened our knives for Batman v Superman — this new Wonder Woman thing is just a freight train of love, coming at you full steam.

‘Wonder Woman’ is the most inspiring superhero movie in years

TwitterFacebook

Wonder Woman made her big-screen debut last year in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but from a plot perspective, she didn’t really need to. Her role isn’t much more than a glorified cameo whose main purpose seems to be to set up future films.

Tonally, though, her introduction was crucial. Wonder Woman felt like a glowing beacon of hope in a grim and gritty movie, and her uncomplicated heroism stood in stark relief to the more tormented variety exemplified by her future Justice League teammates.

This week’s big release proves that was no flukeWonder Woman the movie does for the DCEU what Wonder Woman the character did for Batman v Superman, offering a different perspective on the franchise that brings its vision into clearer focus. And in doing so, it becomes one of the most inspiring superhero movies since Captain America: The First Avenger.  Read more…

Yep, someone has made music from a fidget spinner

TwitterFacebook

You might be already very familiar with the work of YouTuber Andrew Huang. 

He’s attained quite a following for making music out of unconventional things, like water, or “99 Red Balloons” composed entirely by balloons.

Despite all that, all his fans want to see is him make music from fidget toys. “This has gotta be one of my most requested videos of all time,” Huang exclaims. And so, here we are.

Being an instrument that doesn’t make much noise apart from a whirr and a click, it works best for a “minimal techno” track, and Huang’s effort ends up being close to a tune you’d hear on record label Perlon. Read more…
