20 Of Humanity's Greatest Small Victories

Dark Arts

Dark Arts

Who did this guy have to sell his soul to in order to reach such enlightenment?

Don't Sneeze

Don't Sneeze

If you've ever looked at the Pyramids in Egypt and thought, "Man, those guys would be next-level at Jenga and Tetris!" then what about the fine brains that gathered to make this work?!



We've Tried and Tried

We've Tried and Tried

We've tried and tried to get this to happen in the past with absolutely no success whatsoever. We're jealous but also we feel like a little congratulations is in order.

Peanut Butter Shelf

Peanut Butter Shelf

A what? A peanut butter shelf!

Why do we need a peanut butter shelf? If you find yourself asking that question you will join the hordes of people who missed the point and know how to ask the question nut not how to see the answer.



Perfect Peel

Perfect Peel

Be honest with yourself and me while you're at it. Have you ever been able to achieve such a feat as this?

Thought so...

Blankety Blank

Blankety Blank

There is no discernible pattern here beyond the fact that the way it's cut means it fits together somehow or another. But there is one thing far more obvious than how to complete this puzzle; the person who managed it is an absolute genius who needs a high five from all of us!



I'm Still Excited By The Blank Puzzle

I'm Still Excited By The Blank Puzzle

Yeah, this is okay, I guess.

King Tabasco

King Tabasco

I would not want to be this guy's toilet. To be fair, I wouldn't really want to be anybody's toilet but especially not this guy's.



Fork/Beer Balancing Act

Fork/Beer Balancing Act

I've never seen this done before, and while it is moderately impressive, perhaps the reason that I've never seen it done before is that it serves absolutely no purpose whatsoever.

Penicl Enlightenment

Penicl Enlightenment

You have tried this before many times, I know you have. I also you know you have failed on each occasion. This person deserves your undying respect, not the negatives side effects of your jealousy.



I Fit An iPhone Inside My Head

I Fit An iPhone Inside My Head

This guy managed to fit an iPhone inside his own head hole. And that's all there is to say about that.

Look at his face. Look deep in his eyes. Is there anybody in there?

Russian Balloons

Russian Balloons

I can do the Russian dolls thing but this is something else altogether. I like to imagine that it was a really skillful parents trying to explain to their youngster where babies come from. At some point, they had to make one balloon appear pregnant with a baby balloon. Genius.



Oreo Tower

Oreo Tower

There are many ways to eat an Oreo but really only one "true" way. No we all know what that is. You're welcome.

That Coin Thing

That Coin Thing

Somebody had some spare change and a little bit of time on their hands (but not the skill level of that Japanese dude who manages to balance coins like a Jedi coin guru).



One Single Peel

One Single Peel

This is a bit like the person who managed to keep the pencil shaving in one piece, only nowhere near as impressive.

Golf Ball Tower

Golf Ball Tower

This, on the other hand, continues to blow my fragile mind the more I gaze upon it. To be fair though, it's probably just four golf balls hanging on a string that we can't see because the light is right. However, I like to imagine that this person managed to line up the dimples and enlist a perfect sense of balance to make a golf ball tower.



Double Double

Double Double

I don't know if this is necessarily skill (unless the chef genetically engineered chickens to lay double-yoked eggs) but when you get a situation which involves two double-yokers, it's hard not to be impressed.

The Perfect Sphere

The Perfect Sphere

The perfect tinfoil sphere makes you science project all the more impressive, especially when you set a banana in orbit around it.



Talented Frustration

Talented Frustration

However did this has skills that are wasted in the office. I mean, I don't know them - maybe they moonlight in a field more suited to their skills. But this looks like talented frustration to me, and that makes us sad.

Perpetual Slinky

Perpetual Slinky

I thought that we should finish off with something truly impressive. This is a machine designed to ensure that this slinky always ahs a step to go down. I know, it's crazy, right?! But again, entirely pointless ...unless we're missing something....
