For all the benefits life on a boat can afford (horrible schedules, really hard work, fear of drowning, seasickness), it turns out there are also some downsides. And upsides. Then back downsides. It's not the most stable lifestyle, let's put it that way. Here are some fun and freaky moments of seemingly impossible physics thanks to that good ol' fixed camera.

Here are two machines, both capable of balancing themselves using the power of reaction wheels. First, it's kind of amazing that people do this every day without even thinking about it. Second, it's really amazing that someone figured out how to engineer self-balancing machines out of a few motors and strategically placed wheels. For some funny engineering, here's a dude who kicked up his video game rumble several notches.

This is one seriously chill capybara! And this capybara is certainly living the good life!

When one capybara, who was chilling to the max within the hot spring, spontaneously emerges with a mandarin orange upon its head, it was a moment of beauty and amazement for all. It was perfectly balanced, as all things should be. Who could resist a capybara where an orange as a hat? Not many people in this world, including us. 

This is why we're sharing this holy video with you, for you to feel connected to this capybara and the moment it reached enlightenment. Doesn't get any better than this, folks!

Twitter User Harasses with Precariously Balanced Cups

It's well known that the internet is weird. The flavor of that weirdness varies a lot. Do precariously balanced cups count as harassment? If you're the type of person whose blood boils looking at imperfect and frustrating things, then probably. Those cups man, why aren't they more on the table, man?

Zen Cats Balancing Things On Their Heads

It is a fact that cats are the ultimate zen masters. Whenever they get into that most concentrated, chill headspace, it is not easy to get them out of it. You can poke them, speak to them, pet them, and still, they be chill. They're hard at work, contemplating reality and deep philosophical questions. It would be a privilege to get into that cat's head and see the secrets of the universe.

Since we can't do that though, we use this moment of contemplation and show our own mental prowess by placing things on our cats' heads. It's one of the most silly and amusing things in the world. When they look you in the eye with that pen on their heads - that's one of the moments that you can really see what they're thinking, and it's something along the lines of: "fine, human, I will allow you this moment of entertainment, but you better give me a treat after."

Weirdly Satisfying Images of Graceful Perfection

If you're like most people, you get this quizzical sense of satisfaction out of stuff being well balanced, perfectly crafted, or lined up really well. It's also satisfying to see things that fit perfectly. For the dark side of this, the deliberately flawed stuff, here are slightly uncomfortable pictures that spit on perfectionism.

It's bold moves like these that convince people why women live longer than men.

Anyway here's safety failures that would give OSHA nightmares.

With this prank getting popular again, we've seen dads get out of this jam before. However, we've never seen someone counter this prank with such grace. This guy has to be some sort of wizard.
