This could indicate there there is intelligent life below the ground and uses light as we do. This is not a glare from the sun, nor is it an artifact of the photo process."

No, this isn't a computer-rendered scene from an upcoming science fiction film, but rather a real inflatable jungle gym of sorts created by Croatian-Austrian collective Numen/For Use. Called the "String Prototype", this inflatable structure boasts a network of cables that can be explored similar to a jungle gym. When the volume deflates, the ropes get loose and lay on the ground enabling compression of the installation. When the object inflates, the ropes tense to a perfect line again, strained enough to carry the weight of a human being. Bodies entrapped in 3D grid, flying in unnatural positions throughout superficial white space, resemble Dadaist collages. Impossibility of perception of scale and direction results in simultaneous feeling of immenseness and absence of space. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

For example, one teacher decided to play along with his students' April Fools Day prank by writing sideways on the chalkboard. Or, a gym teacher who decided to use a bow and arrow to get a stray ball down from the rafters. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

Let's face it, all laptops will eventually break, and when that happens, it usually goes either to the repair shop, thrown out, or recycled. These geeks however, have found some weird alternative uses, such as a mini stool of sorts or as a nut cracker. The one that may be the most puzzling would probably have to be the dustpan, as we all know that flat, non-walled surface won't be able to keep anything in.
