In I’m pretty sure I remember a Mythbusters episode about this news, this is a video of The Action Lab half-heartedly experimenting to see if a swimmer (read: wind-up turtle toy) can swim just as fast in syrup as in water. The idea is that although syrup is more viscous,
This is a Guinness World Record video about 17-year old Maci Currin, who recently claimed the record for longest legged female. Maci, who stands 6-feet 10-inches tall (~210cm), has legs that measure 134cm and 135cm long (~53-inches, 4’5″). Holy smokes! For reference *checking jean tag while I sit on toilet*

This is a video of musician/starer Kestrel Tapes performing Toto’s ‘Africa’, but in a minor key. It kinda sounds like The X-Files theme. What’s a minor key anyways? Beats me. Major key? No clue. Major Tom? *wiping tear* HE WAS A SPACE HERO. Keep going for the video, as well
