President Barack Obama is on back on Jimmy Kimmel’s show for a second presidential edition of the always amusing ‘Mean Tweets’ segment.

If you watched Netflix’s Stranger Things you probably come away from season one with a whole load of questions. Like, will Eleven return? What’s with the Demogorgon?

The Walking Dead’s character Carol Peletier has been one of the most intriguing on the show. Starting out as a timid and bullied wife she rose to become a hardass zombie slayer who wasn’t afraid to take out the odd human too when the situation demanded it.

There are plenty of objects and even musical instruments that are made from Lego, but this creation is seriously impressive. Woodworker Peter Brown decided to used 250 Lego bricks (and 20 ounces of resin) to make an actual working skateboard, all crafted by hand. So far, so good—but can it skate?
