Homer J. Simpson said it best when he proclaimed, “To alcohol! The cause of, and solution to, all of life’s problems!” That phrase was put on display in New Zealand recently, as a group of residents built a makeshift island out of sand to avoid the ban on drinking alcohol in public places. As reported by BBC, the people who built the island enjoyed New Year’s Eve with a few cold ones under the fireworks in “international waters.” The tiny island, which was outfitted with benches and coolers, remained intact on New Year’s Day, and even the police had a laugh about it when they discovered the brilliant plan.
