MANDELA TRIBUTE FAIL

What was meant to be a touching tribute to Nelson Mandela, turned into a giant fail.

Someone did set up a poster to pay tribute to the late Nelson Mandela in India in the city of Coimbatore.

But the picture featured is not Mandela, South Africa’s first black president.  It’s American actor Morgan Freeman.

Freeman did play Mandela in the 2009 movie “Invictus.”

The man responsible for the poster says he will have it fixed.

COLLEGE ACCEPTANCE LETTER

A 20-year old with Down Syndrome gets a life changing letter in the mail – and thanks to a home video we get to see his reaction.

Rion Holcombe was overcome with excitement as he realized he’d been accepted into Clemson University’s LIFE program.

It’s a two-year program that lets young people with special needs experience college.

His mom and Clemson alum, says it’s a dream come true for her son.

LEGO CAR

You can’t travel very fast in this car — but that will give all the people around you extra time to check out this ride.

It’s a car made completely of Legos — about half a million of them to be exact.

A 20-year-old Romanian tech guru built the car in about 18 months.

He added tires and used some other tools to hold to the car parts together — everything else is Legos!

The car’s engine is powered by air and tops out at about 20 miles per hour.
