Watching Toothbrushes Melt Is So Incredibly Satisfying 

Video: Humanity’s connection to fire dates back to when our earliest ancestors realised it could be used for warmth and survival. Why do you think staring into a campfire is so mesmerising? It probably also explains why watching toothbrushes slowly melt and shrivel away is so utterly fascinating. That, or deep down you’re secretly harbouring bad feelings towards your dentist. 

You Can Watch 8 Minutes Of That Cheesy Mr. Robot Horror Film Online

Lava Spilling Over A Cliff Looks Like Hot Candy

Making A 400-Year-Old Sword Using Ancient Techniques Is Pretty Damn Hard 

Video: Watch as the guys from Baltimore Knife and Sword make a 400-year-old Dandao sword from China using some really old techniques and machinery. It’s awesome to see iron sand transformed into steel in a smelter that would be similar to the ones the Chinese used centuries ago. It’s almost cooler to see a block of steel get stretched out in a rolling mill that’s been used to make horseshoes for 80 years.

Video: There are a lot of unpleasant experiences you can go through in life, but few might be as excruciating as the LEGO Treadmill Challenge created by the brave souls at WheresMyChallenge. The idea is simple: see how long you can walk barefoot on a treadmill while random Lego pieces are poured on it. The hard part is enduring this torture for longer than half a second. 

Hacking A Celebrity's Phone In The 1930s Was Actually Similar To Today 

Myrna Loy was a huge movie star in the 1930s and 40s. She starred in classic films like The Thin Man (1934), Manhattan Melodrama (1934), and The Best Years of Our Lives (1946). Ed Sullivan crowned her “Queen of the Movies.” But celebrity always has a dark side. 

Tarantino's Suicide Squad Is The Greatest Team-Up We'll Never See
