With more than 72 hours of footage uploaded every minute, it’s physically impossible to keep track of the content on YouTube. In YouTube Guide, the Daily Dot will curate its five favorite finds for each workday.

1) People Water, “7 year old Professional Sandcastle Builder”

Hunter, a 7-year-old professional sandcastle builder from Los Angeles, dropped out of preschool to pursue his dreams, and it looks like it’s paying off. He reveals that he worries about many of the same things as older artists, but still has time for passion projects.

2) Dumbshit Mountain, “Kickstart Cobra”

Cobra Commander is homeless after the G.I. Joes destroyed Cobra Island, so he’s turning to Kickstarter to rebuild it. He’s only asking for a cool $94 billion and offers perks such as revealing his true identity, the services of Storm Shadow, and an honorary spot at COBRA.

3) AsapSCIENCE, “Should You Use The SNOOZE Button?”

For almost anyone who’s ever had to wake up early, the answer to this question might be a no-brainer, but the snooze button may do more damage than good. Your sleep schedule resets post-snooze, so you might as well set the alarm later or go to sleep earlier.

4) Public Prank, “Box Scare Prank”

It may be one of the oldest tricks in the book, but these pranksters still manage to scare the crap out of the many unknowing victims as they walk by and stop to give directions (but two younger girls know better).

5) Antonio Toscano, “Lego Star Trek Into Darkness Trailer”

No, we still don’t know who Benedict Cumberbatch is playing in the newest Star Trek film, but as with almost any LEGO video game, building and transforming a trailer with thousands of LEGOs just makes it better.
