Here's another post, in which we pause for a moment to take a deep breath (hold it... hold it... now exhale), slow down, relax, and start winding down in preparation for the weekend. As part of this exercise, I've gathered a few choice diversions for your delectation, delight, pondering, and rumination. This week's humble offerings are as follows:


No. 1: Do you think you are having a bad day? Is it as bad as sending eye-watering amounts of electricity surging through your tongue? Sometimes, no matter how horrifying a video is, you just cannot look away. (Click here to discover more.)


No. 2: Unfortunately, Mehdi Sadaghdar—the star of the previous video—just doesn't know when to stop. His videos on how to change an electric light bulb (click here) and how to build an electric guitar (click here) cannot fail to make you cringe and wince with empathetic pain.


No. 3: I don't know about you, but my eyes are still watering from the previous videos. Let's change pace and look at something that makes one gasp in wonder—a 240-year-old clockwork automaton that can write. (Click here to discover more.)


No. 4: Now I feel in the mood for the video equivalent of comfort food. One of my all-time favourite videos is the trick the Improv Everywhere group played in Grand Central Station. Even if you've seen this before, it's always worth another look. (Click here to discover more.)


No. 5: Speaking of improv, another of my all-time favourite videos is the one where over 200 dancers perform "Do, Re, Mi," from The Sound of Music in a Belgian train station. Once again, even if you've already seen this, you need to watch it again, because it's simply impossible to view this all the way through without ending up with a great big beaming smile on your face.
