Is it the backpack that freaks me out so much? Is it the ease with which the dog moves, as if she’s never known the comfort of life on four legs at all? I JUST DON’T KNOW. Remember that episode of “Spongebob” where he and Patrick visit the town of Rock Bottom and everything there is just wrong? That is how this video makes me feel. [HuffPost]

Bill Nye Explains Evolution With Emojis

Dancing Twins = Reproduction? I Guess I Can Roll With It

This Is What Happens When You Saw A Rubber Band Ball In Half
Why Do I Have Chills?

I don’t know what I expected to happen when a rubber band ball is sawed in half, but I certainly did not anticipate feeling a mixture of delight, fear and revulsion. Like, I am oddly terrified of, grossed out by and dying to touch whatever is happening on my screen right now. [IFL Science!]

It’s Time To Cry: Grandma Receives A Holiday Surprise In This Apple Ad

Apple
So Sweet!

I want to be mad at Apple because they’re making me feel so many feelings for the sake of pitching laptops or whatever, but this ad is just too sweet to resent. As you watch this granddaughter surprise her grandma with a very special song, you’ll be too caught up in warm fuzzies to be bitter that the company’s trying to sell you stuff. [22 Words]
