YouTube's published its top 10 list of the most watched videos from the UK. Topping the list is a spoof of our Wills and Kate bounding down the isle, which was produced by T-mobile as part of its 'life is for sharing' advertising campaign.
The next time you're annoying people from afar with your laser pointer, you'll have a greater appreciation for its bright and focused beam after watching One Minute Physics break down the theoretical science behind how it works.
Sneakers, the film about a team of hackers and social engineers who break into banks just to test their security, isn't just a film. People really do get to do that for a living — people like Moran Cerf. Here's how he held up a bank without breaking a law.
If this monstrous snaking course is what slides are like at Japanese playgrounds, my mind probably won't even be able to begin to comprehend the magnitude of their swingsets. I imagine they must tower over skyscrapers.
A group of crazy and wonderful scientists have organised the World Cell Race. 50 lab teams from all over the world sent their microscopic pilots to race against each other. The winner: a bone marrow stem cell line from Singapore.

You know what looks like a lot of fun? Dropping Soviet T-80 battle tanks from huge Soviet cargo planes, using both a parachute and retro-rockets to slow them down just before they land safely on Earth. Don't believe me? Watch.

There are adverts so good, you'll never forget them. There are also adverts so bad, you can't help but remember them. Where does this Norwegian advert that shows a creepily sadistic little boy, who scalps women and catapults cats for Norway's 1888 telephone directory/text messaging service fall then?
Pay close attention to this video, people. Not because it's Steve Jobs, but because it's some of the best advice you will ever receive: Steve Jobs giving you his vision of life and how you can make a difference.
Wait for it. Wait for it. Waaaait for it. By the end, you'll see how to very easily and very sadly lose £2,000 in 24 seconds. The video was filmed with a Canon 5D Mark II in Cannon Beach, Oregon by Kurtis Hough. [Vimeo]
