Do you spin your pen? I spin my pen. Usually while I’m watching myself on camera during online meetings I’m tuned out of. But enough about me being the model employee, this is a video from Wired of champion pen spinner Peter Davis breaking down the sport’s skills into 21
Because music is everywhere, this is a video of HarvardTHUD (The Harvard Undergraduate Drummers) performing AC/DC’s ‘Thunderstruck’ on boomwhackers (previously: ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ and Outkast’s ‘Hey Ya’).

Man, his hands must be STEADY. My
This is a series of Christmas themed domino displays set up and knocked down by domino fanatic Lily Hevesh. There was some pretty cute and clever pieces in there. I particularly enjoyed the zigzag knock-down of the Santa hat. It goes without saying, but I could never do this. Santa
Because multi-tasking comes in many questionable forms (I cut my nails while driving and just leave the cuttings where they land), this is a video of unicyclist Mike Taylor using a weed whacker while riding his cycle. The video also includes footage of his unicycling partner Marie Schlenker performing some
