Family Discover Someone Living in a Secret Room in the House… WTF!?!

It all began innocently enough, two young boys playing about in a relatively new house when they accidentally yanked one of the bookshelves, making an unusual discovery in the process.

Behind it was a secret staircase which nobody in the family even knew existed.

When they peer down they found a tall, spiral staircase that lead downward directly into a wall…

But as you walked about halfway down the staircase, a crawlspace  in the side of the wall was revealed.

After peering in, the two boys discovered the most chilling scene. Someone had been squatting, right there inside their own walls.

Upon closer inspection the boys found a few objects, firstly this odd looking elephant.

Secondly a mysterious old key that doesn’t work with any of the “known” locks in the house.

Geometric Beach Towels That Magically Repel Water

The Vertty beach towel sheds water and sand to improve your beach experience that much more. The towel, which is defined by its colorful hide and zigzagging profile, is made of sustainable and synthetic materials that work to wick water away from the cloth fibers. If that’s not enough, it also looks good…

…The most noticeable improvement is Vertty’s innovative fabric, called Ketten, that forms the core of the towel and prevents it from getting too wet. The textile is responsible for lightening the weight of the cloth by 30%; with less cotton in the blend, the towel can also dry in no time.

A Monochrome Lego Set To Teach Tomorrow’s Architects

The first thing you’ll notice about the Lego Architecture Studio is that it’s white. There are no colors, no shades, no pigments, no hues here. It is as white as a piece of paper, a glass of milk, a blind albino lizard skittering in a lightless cave a mile below the ground. White, white, white.

Your first thought might be: “That’s a little bland for Lego.” But you should power through that impression. There’s a reason that every single brick of the 1,200+ Lego Architecture Studio set is white: It’s a serious effort by Lego to get bricksmiths young and old the world over thinking about the core concepts of architectural design, not just a Lego building’s bright, Technicolor facade.
