Jeremy, Richard, and James may not have been having a cuppa, but they were there in spirit at the undercover Grand Tour Cafe in New York, where the motorized furniture comes to life, and the reactions are priceless. Next season starts now. (Thanks, Kevin!)

“Simply apply the heat-dampening cream shield, and let the TouchBlade Pro collect your genetic sample with ease!” Auralnauts upgrades a commercial for a fancy razor, giving it far greater abilities than simply shaving stubble. Say it with us now… “Brett FAHHVRAAHH.”
Christmas time can be depressing for some people. To offer an appropriate complement to these dark days, musician Chase Holfelder rearranged holiday classics into sad songs by flipping them into a minor key. All we want for Christmas is to drown our sorrows in eggnog.
Daredevil Antony Britton set the Guinness World Record for longest distance full body burn w/o oxygen, running 670 feet before the Stannage International Stunt Team put him out. He also ran the fastest 100m fire sprint, which is something most of us would do if set ablaze.
The older you get, the more the years coalesce into one blob we call “the past.” But Mental Floss wants us to know exactly how ancient we’ve become with this list of things that happened or started 21 years ago, including Google, Space Jam, and A Song of Ice and Fire.
LEGO master Sariel believes Santa Claus knows about climate change. So he made St. Nick an amphibious sleigh with the help of a thematic part – LEGO Christmas baubles. They’re not completely airtight, but they work well enough as wheels both on ground and in water.
The Who’s 1971 classic Baba O’Riley has one of the most memorable synthesizer riffs of all time. Here, the guys from Those Darn Accordions! turn in a fun cover version of the track with the synths replaced by accordions. They need to do a version of Squeeze Box now.
A (mostly) satisfying video which shows how a Heller 5-axis milling machine carves away at a solid block of metal, transforming it into a spherical shape, first starting with rough lines, and gradually refining it. Though we really need some closure after they left it with a flat top.
A brief look at one of our favorite actors, a man who most people won’t even recognize. Doug Jones is the talent behind such memorable characters as Abe Sapien in Hellboy, Cochise on Falling Skies, the Pale Man in Pan’s Labyrinth. Oh, and McDonald’s Mac Tonight.
Incredible footage captured over Kimberley, Australia, as storm clouds and lightning rolled through. Geoff Green’s time-lapse is at once an awe-inspiring and terrifying reminder of nature’s fury. Photo geeks: shot w/ Nikon D800 @ 1 frame per 2 sec, 1.6 sec exposure, ISO 2000.
(PG-13: Language) Notoriously snarky and egotistical musician Noel Gallagher surfs the internet, checking out social media, comments, and other content about himself and his former Oasis bandmates, and responds in kind in this delightful episode of GQ’s series Actually Me.
(PG-13: Language) Eclectic Method’s latest remix reminds us that Die Hard is truly required viewing each holiday season, right there alongside A Christmas Story, another movie in which one of the protagonist’s main objectives is acquiring firearms despite the odds.
Knives are typically made from tool steel. But the guys at Ollari’s show us how with the proper cutting blades and an angle grinder, a block of granite can be transformed into a sharp-edged cutting tool as well. We’re betting Primitive Technology would do the same with only a rock.
The crew of Expedition 53 on the International Space Station couldn’t order delivery, so they decided to make some pizzas for themselves. We assumed all of toppings would just float off in the microgravity environment, but with enough sauce, they seem to stick pretty well.
