This majestic nature time lapse will make you want to go outdoors more
It's the colors that get you when you're out in nature. If you live in a city, you're mostly dealing with drabs of gray speckled with Instagrams of exposed red bricks. If you live in the suburbs, you'll see manicured lawns, potted trees, stucco and tile roofs until you're myopic. But if you're outside, like really outside, you'll see ballets of pink, golden orgies, blistering diamonds, the honesty of red and mounds of dirt that are baked with life. It's a wonderful world out there and we don't see it enough.

Watch a real life Human Torch create fire with his bare hands
Who knew that one of the easiest superhero powers to get (at least on a neutered, pathetic human scale) is the Human Torch's Flame On power? If you're Russian and/or drink a lot of vodka, you can use a hot wire and a debauched sense of pain to create fire with your bare hands. Just pour fuel on the ground, hold a hot wire in one hand and place your free hand over the fuel to complete the circuit. Instaflame.

Lamps Made From Real Bread Must Smell Delicious
