Pets can see Pokemons and there’s enough photographic evidence!

Pokemon Go and Pets

Pokemon Go has broken all records on the meter for game induced madness, and people are doing over the top things to prove it. Some have quit jobs to be professional Pokemon catchers while others are idiotic enough to play it on the expressway and stop the car midway to cause multiple crashes.

Iron Man Rocket Propellers

We have following really cool Iron Man-themed stuff all this while. Some have been Iron Man Costumes while others have been arc reactors or similar stuff. But, no one ever thought of actually taking off like Iron Man powered by rockets producing 50 pounds of thrust. This DIY attempt almost fulfills that dream.
