Do What You Can’t is the latest short from Casey Neistat that focuses on essentially throwing up a big middle finger to everyone that’s ever told you “no” and following your dreams. In his words, “Keep your head down. Follow the rules. Do as your told. Play it safe. Wait your turn. Ask permission. Learn to compromise. This is terrible advice.” From helicopter flights over the Hollywood sign and a guy dressed like Aladdin floating over the streets of NYC to interviews with Obama and traveling the world with a piano, Neistat and fellow online content creators make a pretty compelling argument about bringing your ideas to life and never letting anyone tell you what you can and can’t do, say or create.
Located in Kyushu Nagasaki Sasebo city, Huis Ten Bosch is a “Dutch-themed park” in Japan that’s developing an all new attraction unlike anything we’ve ever seen, because this floating hotel room takes you to a deserted island. Less than 4 miles outside of the park, Huis Ten Bosch owns an uninhabited island with close to 40,000 square meters of, well, nothing, which they’re going to develop in the future. How do you get across the water to the future home of what we can only hope is a real life version of Jurassic Park? You hop in a floating capsule that divides all the amenities of a hotel room across two floors. As you fall asleep in the glass capped upper floor bedroom, the floating capsule will transport you slowly to the island overnight. The rooms should be able to accommodate up to four guests with a price ranging upwards from $260. Service could start as early as the end of this year.

Falling somewhere between a marinade and a dry rub, the so-called “Seasoning Stix” are designed to be skewered into beef, pork, poultry or fish. The sticks liquify during the cooking process, resulting in meat that’s flavored (Sriracha flavored, at that) from the inside out. Available in four flavors — Classic Sriracha, Sriracha Butter Garlic, Sriracha Teriyaki and a yet-to-be-named mystery blend — Huy Fong’s Seasoning Stix are slated to ship later this month.

There are all kinds of opinions about how to treat dead bodies. Plenty of people are buried, but others are in coffins that hang from cliff faces, some still make it to family dinner, and some don’t even stay on Earth. And Vinyly has an entirely different way of doing things. The company will take the cremated remains of any of your loved ones and press them into vinyl records. And not just things that look like vinyl records. Part of the process is providing And Vinyly with up to 24 minutes of audio to be written into the vinyl. It could be voice recordings, favorite songs, original compositions, or any other sound you’d like to be associated with for as long as the records exist. But if you’re still sentimentally attached to the traditional burial, don’t worry, they’ll use individual body parts. You can send a leg off to them and have the rest of you dropped in the family plot. That’s the best of at least three different worlds.
