After catching a sufficient high, wandering the internet becomes an exciting adventure. What starts out as reading an article about hippo conservation, somehow leads to a page about balloons, to a page about chicken sweaters, to a page about fairy hunting, to a page about growing wild arugula. Before you know it, 3 a.m. creeps around and your recent history resembles that of a deranged four-year-old.
There is no shortage of online entertainment, but it can be hard to determine exactly where to waste time, without feeling like you’re really wasting time. These ten links are sure to entice every part of the buzzed brain, while teaching something along the way.
1. Self-parking chairs
These self-parking chairs have to be the coolest thing I have ever seen. They completely eliminate the need to constantly hassle people about pushing in chairs, and would do wonders for a classroom. I’m curious as to what would happen if a person were in the chair when it was clapped away… Check it out here.
2. Biking on abandoned bobsled track
3. Trailed by a Great White shark
A special kind of terror is brought about when viewing this shark; if you share my fear of water, you’ll understand. Still, seeing how the beast stalks prey is as entertaining as it is terrifying. Prepare yourself and watch it here.
4. Hand-blown glass vase
5. Clear sea slug
Somehow, this video is oddly satisfying. The clear sea slug can be found in waters around the world, and would be enough to startle anyone who was unfamiliar with it. Do yourself a favor, become familiar with it by watching it here, just in case.
6. Boiling water thrown in subfreezing temperatures
As someone who has personally experienced the joy of this science experiment, I can tell you it is an amazing thing to witness. When boiling water is thrust into subzero temperatures, snow magically forms before your own eyes. This slowed-down version makes it look extra awesome. Prepare to be amazed here.
7. Waterfall fire shots
Flames and liquor are never a good combination. This drink is inviting all sorts of problems to the bar; even the guy who’s about to drink it looks concerned. Where is this legal? Who is your insurance provider? Shake your head here.
8. Trampoline wall walk
Another perfect example of science and physical strength coming together to create epic internet entertainment. Check it out here.
9. Hypnotizing mandelbrot
I had no idea what a Mandelbrot was before becoming entranced by this video and spending the next ten minutes forgetting about life. Watch this to relax and unwind, it is sure to help. Lose yourself here.
10. Runner vs. cheetah
Racing a cheetah is not a battle easily won, not even with a head start. The cheetah quickly reminds us it’s the fastest animal on Earth and it won’t be beaten. Check ou the race here.
