This Insane Jenga Move Is the Most Incredible Thing Any Of Us Will Ever See

No one will ever top this. Shut it down.

Watch carefully, because it all happens so fast. This eight-second video features a woman pulling off a very impressive Jenga move — and though it probably isn’t legal, rules-wise, it’s still really awesome.

Of course, there are some Jenga Truthers out there who think this could be a manufactured stunt. (Understandable, since this is the Internet, and a lot of things here are fake.) As BuzzFeed points out, some Redditors think the Jenga blocks could have been glued together to make the maneuver easier.

But when you hear the glee and wonder and pure amazement of the people watching this Jenga wizard, it’s hard not to believe in it. We all need something to believe in.

Watch Tina Fey Hilariously Spoof NPR in This 1997 Improv Sketch

Also featuring SNL's Rachel Dratch and 30 Rock's Scott Adsit

Before Tina Fey was the brilliant and famous person we know today, she was a brilliant, un-famous person who performed at Chicago’s Second City theater. In this 1997 clip, unearthed by Splitsider, we get to see Fey playing a public radio host named Lynn Mahevic — years before she became a regular on Saturday Night Live.

The very funny 15-minute sketch is all improvised based on an audience member’s suggestion of “banana.” That alone should indicate how talented the performers are. Along with Fey, you’ll notice fellow SNL alum Rachel Dratch, along with Scott Adsit, who played Pete Hornberger alongside Fey in 30 Rock.

Watch Drake Introduce the Toronto Raptors in a Really Drake Way

The rapper was the guest of honor at Wednesday's game against the Brooklyn Nets

Wednesday night was “Drake Night” at the Toronto Raptors’ Air Canada Centre — though in our hearts, every night is Drake Night.

The rapper returned to his hometown as the team’s guest of honor, and his responsibilities included introducing the starting lineup before the game.

It was great because he got really into it, adding weird little jokes about the players. For example: “From Westchester High, a 6’9″ forward, he recently got a tattooo of a Swiffer Wet Jet, number 15, Amir Johnson!”

Then other Drake things happened, like this:

Fortunately, it appears Drake didn’t attempt any three-point shots. The last time he tried that, he totally airballed, and after that, nothing was the same.

6. Charity gift card: Instead of giving someone a physical gift, it can be a great idea to donate to a cause in their name.

10. Taylor Swift’s 1989: As we all know, Taylor Swift’s newest album (or any of her music, for that matter) isn’t available on Spotify. So go ahead and purchase an electronic version as a gift for that friend who’s been meaning to listen to it — or for those other friends who insist they hate Taylor Swift, so you can try to change their minds. (iTunes: $12.99; Google Play: $12.49)

Watch the Trailer for the Final Season of Parks and Rec, Set in the Future

Jerry's new name is Terry, for instance

Parks and Recreation‘s final season (sad face) will air on Jan. 13 and will take place in 2017. (You know, since at the end of the previous season they jumped ahead three years. Continuity.) Now, thanks to this new, science fiction-tinged trailer, we get a glimpse into what life is like the near future. (Spoiler: there will be drones.)

All your favorite Pawneeans are back, but they’ve definitely changed. Andy, for example, now has his own TV show. Jerry now goes by Terry (against his will, obviously). Tom’s now a mogul (or so he claims).

Otherwise, we’re all just going to have to tune in on Jan. 13 to figure out what else is going on. Our only major hope is that there’s a Li’l Sebastian statue somewhere by 2017.

Watch Sir Ian McKellen Teach Cookie Monster About Self-Control

Specifically, how to resist delicious cookies

Back in October, we were lucky enough to see Ice Cube perform magic tricks on Sesame Street. Now, we get to see another, older, more British celeb make an appearance on the show. This time, it’s Sir Ian McKellen.

The Lord of the Rings actor has graciously arrived at Sesame Street to teach Cookie Monster a new word: “resist.” He starts with a simple definition: “The word resist means to control yourself and stop yourself from doing something you really want to do.”

McKellen uses a few examples that Cookie Monster does not relate to — until, of course, the actor busts out a cookie and forces Cookie Monster to resist it. Or at least, try to resist it.

5 Times Stephen Colbert Changed the World

From teaching us about campaign finance to saving the Olympic Speedskating team, Colbert's influence goes much deeper than humor

Since its first episode in 2005, The Colbert Report has mostly served to make us laugh. But Stephen Colbert—both as his over-the-top, ultraconservative character and as his normal self—has had a cultural impact that runs deeper than a few giggles. Here, as his show nears its Dec. 18 end, is a look back at five times he stepped up to influence society and inspire people.

1. The time he helped us actually understand campaign finance.

Apparently, faux TV news host Stephen Colbert is more effective than actual journalists when it comes to explaining the intricacies of campaign finance, according to the Annenberg Public Policy Center. Researchers said the show served as “an extended civics lesson”—largely because it walked viewers through the process of creating a political action committee. In March of 2011, Colbert announced he was forming his very own super PAC called “Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow.” It became a running gag on the show, but it gave viewers real insight into the policies surrounding campaign finance. (Colbert shut the super PAC down a week after the 2012 election.)

2. The time he saved the U.S. Olympic Speedskating team.

In 2009, the United States’ Speedskating team found itself int a tough spot while preparing for the upcoming 2010 Winter Olympics. The team’s major sponsor, DSB Bank, declared bankruptcy and cut its funding. So who came to the rescue? Yes, that would be Stephen Colbert. He announced that The Colbert Report would become the team’s primary sponsor, with the show’s fans donating money to the cause. The team made it to the Games, and ended up taking home one gold medal, two silver and one bronze—all while wearing uniforms with “Colbert Nation” emblazoned on the thighs.

3. The time he and Jon Stewart joined forced to lead the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear.

On Oct. 30, 2010, about 215,000 people gathered at the National Mall in Washington, D.C. Why? To attend a rally hosted by comedic icons/fake news pioneers Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, of course. It was part concert, part comedy show, and part political discussion. Colbert mostly stayed in his ultraconservative character throughout the event, but both comedians kept things mostly nonpartisan, particularly in regard to the looming Congressional elections. The goal, it seemed, wasn’t to implore the masses to take a certain political stance—but rather just to get everyone together in the nation’s capital.

4. The time he testified before Congress.

In 2010, Colbert appeared (in character) before a House subcommittee to deliver a testimony about migrant farm workers. “I don’t want a tomato picked by a Mexican,” he testified, stone-faced. “I want it picked by an American, sliced by a Guatemalan and served by a Venezuelan in a spa where a Chilean gives me a Brazilian.” The whole thing was ridiculous and a bit awkward, of course, but Colbert once again proved his ability to use his character’s bravado and faux-conservative views to draw attention to issues that many people would have otherwise overlooked.

5. The time he inspired a Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavor.

Colbert’s contributions haven’t been strictly political or cultural—they’ve also been delicious. In 2007, beloved ice cream company Ben & Jerry’s announced its newest flavor: Stephen Colbert’s AmeriCone Dream. The ingredients themselves—vanilla ice cream, fudge-covered waffle cone pieces and caramel—aren’t especially patriotic, but Ben & Jerry’s promised that the flavor is like “the sweet taste of liberty in your mouth.” Colbert donates the proceeds from AmeriCone dream sales to various charities through The Stephen Colbert AmeriCone Dream Fund. As he put it himself: “I will save the world.”

Watch Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon Play Summer Camp Besties Who Can’t Stop Singing Third Eye Blind

"I would understaaaaaaand"

On Tuesday’s episode of The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake made really, really great use of their acting and singing skills.

In a sketch about summer camp, Fallon and JT play a pair of brace-faced pubescent boys who can’t fall asleep (as they ate too many Pop Rocks, obviously), so they stay up late talking about crushes and their changing bodies and other pubescent boy things. Eventually, the conversation turns to music, and they launch into a beautiful rendition of Third Eye Blind’s 1998 hit, “Jumper.”

Despite getting scolded several times, they’re just so overcome with emotion that they can’t stop singing. It’s beautiful.

Also, make sure to note how many times they break character. It manages to make the sketch even funnier.

More Proof That Mondays Are Terrible: It’s the Most Common Day for Workplace Injuries

Ban Mondays.

The one thing all of humankind has in common — besides the sandwich — is a shared hatred for Mondays, because obviously, they’re just the worst in general. But it also turns out Monday is the day when the most workplace injuries occur.

According to the annual report on “nonfatal occupational injuries and illnesses” by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, around 167,000 workplace injuries took place on Mondays in 2013 — more than any other day of the week. And this is not a new trend, as FiveThiryEight points out. Monday has consistently been the most injury-prone day for the past several years. And while there’s no explicit correlation between the day and the numbers, we still have one main takeaway: Ban Mondays.
