Couple Builds Mini Pub In Backyard And It's Total Goals

One of the most (relatively) devastating effects of Coronavirus has been the closing of all bars and pubs. Although this has been felt everywhere, the British public is understandably one of the most hard-hit nations when it comes to the loss of social drinking. Some are wallowing in their sadness and waiting for the pubs to reopen. But others are taking matters into their own hands and implementing drastic action to get their alcohol fix. One family in Wigan, U.K., hired Octavia Chic to construct a pub in their backyard so they wouldn't have to wait until the lockdown is over. The results are even better than you could imagine, and judging by the pictures Octavia Chic uploaded to their Facebook page (featured below), they're going to get many more orders just like that one!

Bad Home-Haircuts Happening Around The World

Being stuck at home right now means that we don't have access to many of the services that we're dependent on, like schools, gyms and beauty salons. And while homeschooling, doing home workouts and painting your own nails aren't ideal, they're still manageable for the hopefully, short term future. But some services, such as getting a haircut, really need to be left to the professionals because they're just to easy to mess up. These people learned that lesson the hard way, and are probably regretting their DIY chops.
