teslaGuy has play button shaved onto head after showing barber paused video of how he wanted his hair cut

011One Chinese guy saw a clip of a nice haircut on the internet. He paused the video and showed it to a barber who then proceeded to give a very accurate recreation. So accurate, in fact, that it included the play button from the video being shaved into either side of the guy’s head. On Weibo, a friend explained that the barber had asked the guy if he really wanted the triangles. Not understanding the question, he had replied in the affirmative. On the bright side, rather than feeling ashamed of his new haircut, the guy has decided to embrace it. Perhaps he’s simply ahead of the times.

horseThis Chinese wedding trend is the most over-the-top

025You can keep your food trucks, Mason jar cocktails and ironic photobooths because China has cooked up the most insane wedding trend. Brides across the nation have fallen in love with magical “flying veils.” These aren’t regular veils, oh no — these veils zoom down the aisle after the bride, magically landing on her head with a delicate, dainty touch. It’s as if there are two little birds holding it aloft, a la every Disney princess ever. Alas, the flying veil trend is merely a sleight-of-hand involving, as all the craziest trends do, a lot of elaborate rigging and a pulley system worthy of your backyard tree house. It’s about as magic as the Orlando basketball team and the male stripper known as Mike. As in, it’s magic in name only. Still, we can’t deny that this looks completely incredible and delightfully extra.

wedding258 runners caught cheating in Shenzhen's half marathon

026Organisers of the Shenzhen half-marathon have said the 258 participants caught cheating during race will not be able to run away from punishment for their actions. As many as 18 runners were found to wearing fake bibs, and three were running on behalf of others. They face lifetime bans from the event. The 237 others, most of whom had taken shortcuts during the race and were caught out by traffic cameras and local photographers, could be banned for two years. In the most blatant case, a traffic camera caught runners turning round at least 1km before they were supposed to make a U-turn, potentially shaving about 10% off the 21km race.
