We have often wondered why Superheroes prefer to wear underwear over their clothes, unlike the more sensible choice of wearing it under their clothes.

Water on fire? That can’t be happening, right? Apparently, it does happen in North Dakota. All it takes for tap water to rush into a fire is that a flame be near it.

Taking a page out of Ken Block’s awesome Gymkhana, Ford has its own Christmas video with ‘Snowkhana’. Quite like last year’s video, this year’s Snowkhana is a stop motion animation with toys, featuring Mental Block taking the wheel of a 1:64 scale Ford Fiesta. Mr. Mental Block then proceeds to try out stunts, toeing the line of Ken Block, while other cars and characters make cameos. Hit ahead for the last year’s video, this year’s video is up top.
