Need a little color to brighten your day? How about a lot of color?

NASA engineer-turned-Youtuber Mark Rober thinks you do.

Together with the team at Eclectical Engineering, Rober built a couple of pump-powered Super Soakers that will douse your opponents in paint. He even calls in a favor from YouTube inventor Colin Furze for some last minute tips on how to give his nieces and nephews the blues, literally.

The video, with its high-quality slow motion, is a colorful distraction. The fact that you can't play with this thing will have you seeing red... and orange and blue and green.

These two 'nasty women' have made a promise that's going to be pretty hard to keep following election day. 



For one thing, commenters have pointed out that an actual exchange of votes for BJs is very illegal (not to mention difficult to verify). 



Another unintended consequence of this video is the slew of terrible comments. With the exception of Jeff here...



...most of the commenters were unappreciative of the offer.

Look, it's been a long day, so why don't you give yourself five minutes to enjoy something, ok?

The Light, a new short film by director Brandon Bray and cinematographer Tim Sesseler, is just what you need to pull you away from the news for a little bit. Using drone cameras and lighting rigs, the filmmakers were able to put together an immersive and beautiful short that’s totally silent, 100 percent worth your time, and guaranteed to distract you from the rest of the world.

The goal of the piece was to “reinvent cinema lighting,” which is a bold claim, until you realize that this thing looks unlike anything else out there. This is a totally new experience, which will surely take your mind off of whatever else is going on today.

The filmmakers also included a behind the scenes, so you can see for yourself how they put this gorgeous film together. Check it out.

Following a delightful song and dance number between Late Show-host Stephen Colbert and an innocent ragamuffin, the mayor of Candytown himself, Jon Stewart, dropped in to offer the audience some “toffee from an old man’s pants.” But upon learning that Donald Trump is running for president, Stewart, who’s a little out of the loop these days, gave his patented spit-take salute in surprise. Time to get back to work… after a little Yentl, for which there is always time.

Hamilton's Javier Muñoz, an astronaut, a crossing guard, and, of course, an adorable orphan joined other classic symbols of Americana, Colbert, and Stewart on stage to remind the audience to get out and vote. Make this old man’s wish come true, America. 

And now, what we’ve all been waiting for, gifs of people doing spit takes!

Today in “what hands are actually for,” a Dutch man set a new world record by completing a Rubik’s Cube in under five seconds. The Daily Mail reports that 20-year-old Mats Valk deafeated the Cube in 4.74 seconds, making us look ridiculous because, let's face it, we can barely hold on to our phones for five seconds without dropping them and shattering the screen.

Valks took the record last weekend at the Jawa Timur Open 2016 in Blitar, Indonesia, where humanity actually learned that simply opening doors and holding mugs of coffee were the least of what the human hand was capable of. After a brief look at his Rubik’s Cube, Valks picked up the cube and beat the previous record by .16 seconds. Lucas Etter, the previous record holder, is now like the rest of us, wondering what these 10 digits are actually for. Now, everyone look at your own hands and wonder, what have you done for me lately?

Meanwhile, the only one not asking that is this guy:

Nintendo has never shied away from its history — so much so that a crude stereotype is still their beloved mascot. Now they’re taking their nostalgia to the next level with the NES Classic Edition, a tiny version of their groundbreaking 1985 NES console packed with 30 classic games. Available on November 11, the NES Classic will everyone reminiscing about those late nights, chugging soda, and playing video games until the break of day, as well those times in the 1980s when you played the Nintendo Entertainment System for the first time.

Now that the system is only a few days from release, CNET has an unboxing video of the console and is playing it for the first time. As they note, there’s much to love about this thing, from the alphabetical ordering of the games in the main menu (which “they didn’t have to do”) to the CRT filter, which means you can make this thing look “even worse.” The video will have to itching to try this puppy out for yourself and disregarding any actual responsibilities you have for the next few days.

Check out CNET’s unboxing above and their full review here.
