The Elf on the Shelf is a horrific Christmas tradition.

Designed to scare children into good behavior, the Elf is a cheery-eyed Santa crony. He monitors children for the big man, reports back, and ultimately decides whether you end up on the naughty list or not.

Or so we’re told.

Since 2004, the Elf on the Shelf has terrorized children with its watchful gaze and frozen smile. Well, it’s time to pay the piper.

The father-son team over at What’s Inside took a razor to the Elf recently to reveal the plastic, cottony innards and shut down this ruse once in for all.

So what was inside? Did the spirits of a thousand convicted murderers flutter out of the Elf’s stomach?

Well, not exactly. It’s mostly just filled with catharsis, plastic beads, and cotton. Still, pretty great to watch this little creep get torn to shreds.

New Yorkers are a rare breed. They’re the type to not take something sitting down. If there’s a problem, they like to get in there and get their hands dirty, and one thing they have no tolerance for is traffic.

Enter YouTuber Coby Persin, a young man who decided to stage a photoshoot at a busy New York intersection, blocking traffic. 

Enter a man with a bat, who — well, you know the rest.

Check it out below. Real or fake (most likely the latter), this video is pure catharsis.

You hear it every year:

“Turkey makes me sleepy because I’m a wittle baby.”

You’re probably so sick of hearing that, and not just because you invited a giant talking baby to your Thanksgiving again, but also because it’s not necessarily true.

via GIPHY

Wired has taken umbrage with the idea that the tryptophan-heavy turkey is what causes the Thanksgiving tiredness. In fact, as they point out in this bite-sized video, it’s the whole meal that makes you tired.

From soup to nuts, or whatever Thanksgiving metaphor that works better for this article, the whole meal delivers a hardy mixture of tryptophan and carbs. Ugh, not them again. Basically you get tired because all the food you eat contains these chemicals and all the carbs in potatoes and stuffing you cram down your gullet on Turkey Day force your body to slow down and digest.

Check it out the video and be the smartest person at the table.

A series of massive earthquakes hit New Zealand this morning, and one YouTube vlogger caught the experience on video.

Omega, a who runs a gaming channel from his home in New Zealand, sat down to record his latest episode, when an earthquake, measuring 7.5 on the Richter Scale, began. Understandably, he seems quite shaken up by the whole experience, but luckily, he was safe.

While the video doesn’t really show the full danger of this earthquake, it was quite severe. This isn’t the first earthquake to hit New Zealand this morning. CNN reported on the series of earthquakes that triggered tsunamis and aftershocks that “left at least two dead.”

According to CNN:

“The first event, a 7.8-magnitude quake, struck just after midnight Monday near the coastal community of Kaikoura, some 93 kilometers (55 miles) northeast of the city of Christchurch”

“It triggered waves of 2.49 meters (8 feet) above usual tide levels, the highest he has seen in his 38 years in New Zealand, Philip Duncan of Weather Watch New Zealand said.”

An initial tsunami warning was lifted but temblors continued Monday afternoon. A 6.2-magnitude quake struck around 1:30 p.m. 39 kilometers west-southwest of Kaikoura, further north of Christchurch.”

Check out the video above.

If you’ve ever considered yourself a disgusting person, a daily affirmation for many, then you might want to ask yourself, “Have I ever eaten my new-born daughter’s placenta?”

If you answered no, then breathe a sigh of relief for you’re not as gross as you thought you were. Feel free to go outside and engage with the rest of society, fly a kite, and smell a flower. The world is your oyster.

If you answered, “Yes, I have eaten my daughter’s placenta,” then meet Aaron Curtis, “skinny natural bodybuilder,” who ate his first born’s placenta,

Curtis’ video “Consuming your daughters placenta for extra natty gains!” is filled with mystery. For instance, Curtis never broaches why he eats his daughter’s placenta or what kind of “natty gains” eating the “organ that provided her life during pregnancy” will offer. He does cook his daughter's placenta into oblivion in a panini press to stave off botulism, though, which is its own kind of weird reward. He also never mentions if this video is real or not. We’re hoping for the latter as much as he’s hoping for natty gains.

Anyway, check out this disgusting video and spend the rest of the day trying not to throw up!

If you listen to Steve, that guy who stands at the end of my block holding a sign that reads “The End of Nigh,” then the end is nigh. Steve’s foresight that the world might be coming to an end should launch you into action, perhaps learning some important survival skills on how to survive the apocalypse. Sure, it’s important to know how to skin a deer with a paper clip, but also important, learning how to open a can of food with a spoon because the irony of having 10,000 spoons when all you need is a knife is no longer going to scare us.

Or are we?

Luckily for you and Steve, a YouTuber is here to help. Popular Life Hacker Dave Hax, who should rebrand to "Life Hax" immediately and has taught us how to make a chocolate Coca Cola bottle and "magnetic slime," has the solution we've been looking for. In this video, Hax teaches you how to open those pesky Campbell's chunky soup cans with a spoon. Use this information well. When the mysterious race of cloaked mutants has taken the world’s supply of can openers, this video could save your life. 

Be ready. Stay alive. Stock spoons.

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.
