It’s a rainy Saturday afternoon, and you can’t go outside to play. If you’re thinking “this day will never end,” then you’re in luck.

The Infinite Galaxy Puzzle is here, and you can do it until the end of time. Not only that, you can assemble this bad boy in any shape or direction you please. It’s a 133 laser-cut pieces of birch plywood just waiting to put together in anyway you choose. The possibilities are endless, so you have no excuse for being bored ever again.

According to Gizmodo, the puzzle is based on a “scientific curiosity called Klein bottle, which is an impossible 3D shape whose insides and outsides are mathematically identical, the intricate pieces that make up this infinite puzzle can be transferred to its opposite side by simply flipping them over.”

The puzzle costs $100 and can be picked up from Nervous System. There’s also a $50 version, which comes with 51 pieces and no image to assemble — it’s just free play.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, when company Christmas parties begin springing up across the world. Who will have too much to drink and end up with a lampshade on their head? Probably you.

But that’s not really a huge problem in Austria because everyone’s afraid to leave their house? Why? What’s to be afraid of on Christmas? How about Krampus, the Austro-Bavaria Apliine folk-beast? Krampus is half goat, half demon, half party animal, and all evil.

Who would want to celebrate this kind of thing? Duh doi. The Austrians, who paraded Krampus costumes in the streets on Saturday for their annual Krampusnacht festival. Watch in horror as these anthropomorphic goat demons stalk the streets, threatening to beat bad children who will be praying for coal after a visit from this horned monster.

According to The Telegraph, “Thousands of people gather in Hollabrunn Market Square, Austria, to watch more than 120 Krampus impersonators take to the streets.”

Check out some terrifying footage of the festival. These costumes are amazing:

Nothing quite like the holidays to get people riled up right? After her ridiculous childish tantrum, she screams, "I VOTED FOR TRUMP!!!!”

Okay...

After a holiday weekend, it can be hard to get back in the swing of things. Whether you’re still working through that turkey hangover or just readjusting to a sleep schedule, few things feel worse than a Monday after a vacation.

Which is why, as always, we give thanks to the internet, and its endless supply of weird videos where valuable things get destroyed.

In that spirit, the YouTube channel Crushit has supplied us with an oddly calming video of a $40,000 gold brick getting crushed by a hydraulic press. The results are nothing less than therapeutic, as the camera holds a tight close up for this precious metal, which could probably make your life much, much easier, get flattened. In universe dictated by chaos, this is the only thing that makes sense anymore.

Go ahead and get lost in this dude just wrecking this $40,000 golden rectangle. It will help you feel better about this being Monday.

For weeks, people have been debating one thing and one thing only: Is this a picture of Tom Hanks or Bill Murray?

With the picture’s subject’s rounded nose and toothless mouth, it can be hard to tell the difference between them. But Tom Hanks appeared on The Graham Norton Show to put the debate to rest.

After showing off the difference between the sides of his own face, Hanks, along with Gemma Arterton and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, recreates the picture of Bill Murray screaming with baby. It’s really something.

Also in this interview, Tom Hanks dusts off his Forrest Gump performance, and this baby still runs.

We’ve heard a lot about how thin and powerful the new iPhone 7 is. We’ve also heard a lot about how waterproof it is. But one question remains: Is this thing Acid Proof?

Good question, which is why TechRax poured the world’s most corrosive acid on the world’s most popular cellphone to find out.

via jjjjjjjjjjohn

Taking several crystals of Fluoroantimonic Acid and dropping them on a working iPhone 7, TechRax tests if the phone can withstand the acid for a day. The acid begins to eat away at the casing but does little to destroy the phone's battery. so The host then adds some hydrogen peroxide and sulfuric acid. Things get fun from there.

The results and the strength of Apple’s phone are very surprising, especially considering that most people break their phones by dropping them in the toilet. The phone actually turns on in the end, but what the acid does to this thing physically is really cool.
