    That's a Himalayan Balsam and it's just one of the many plants that have crazy exploding seed pods. It's not technically a pepper.

    6. IT'S ALIVE / Via

    Candles should not be able to do that. And they can't. The flame is actually being extinguished by electricity not sending it out.

    8. Bottled Spirits / Via

    It's a ghost! If only. It's science.

    Balloon popping .gifs are everywhere on the Internet and I could watch them forever.

    17. Ferrofluids Forever / Via
