The bottom photo reveals just how the installation happened, and it’s no magic trick. This is actually a full-sized box television mounted into a wall, with the back end hanging out in someone unfortunate person’s room. The installation looks like it was a bit of a mess, too, with drywall scraps littering the rug and a mess of wires spread out under the television. But, hey, as long as no one ever discovers their secret, it just might work out. [via Facebook]

Plus, you’d need to understand how hot water delivery systems work to even think of involving a tea kettle. But how, exactly, does it work? And what does it do? [via Reddit]
