Kiwis build tiny island to circumvent booze ban

New Zealand may be in a different hemisphere, but it’s good to see that they ring in the new year just like we do in America: drinking their faces off. But when a local booze ban threatened to spoil the fun, a handful of kiwis fought back with terraforming.

The town of Coromandel, New Zealand banned drinking in public places on New Year’s Eve, but that wasn’t going to stop revelers from drinking on the beach. During low tide they built a small platform out of sand, and installed a picnic table on top of it. When the tide came in, they had themselves an island in what they claimed were international waters.

The group reportedly boozed it up all through the night unmolested by local authorities. Make it your goal to be like these guys in 2018.
