A father an son have made a business out of creating these giant Transformers out of scrap metal and spare car parts.  The first took three years to make in an abandoned warehouse based on photos they got online, but they've now turned their hard work into a thriving business; they made about a million RMB (over $160,000 USD) last year.

That's right—during spring break, Tinder usage on South Padre Island, Texas spikes nearly 2,500 percent. Call it the obvious winner (and, we suppose, loser) here. As of the 2010 census, the island was permanent home to just over 2,800 infinitely patient souls—but it swells to become essentially a small city each March. At its peak, 50,000 students have their run of the place, and from the looks of it, they're all on Tinder.

New Orleans and Miami might post numbers that look pitiful, but that's still up 25 percent, and it's because Tinder usage there is extremely strong throughout the year—and because those cities host what is essentially a year-round spring break.
