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

1) scottdw, “Snow Jump through Flaming Christmas Trees”

At this point, Christmas was almost two months ago, but on the off chance that you haven’t been able to let go of your Christmas trees, lend them these skiers and snowboarders, who masterfully launch themselves over the flaming aftermath of the holidays.

2) AsapSCIENCE, “The Science of Love”

Many think that being in love is all emotion and heart, but it’s also a matter of the mind. The brain scans of someone in love are comparable to someone on cocaine, and much of how we fall in love is purely chemical.

3) charstarleneTV, “Drum-Off”

If you’re fluent in percussion-ese, you might be able to save your voice and argue with a loved one using musical instruments. One couple is able to practice their drumming skills and debate where to grab food. It’s like hitting two cymbals with one stick.

4) UCBComedy, “How To: Find the Perfect Date”

Valentine’s Day is only a few days away, and if you’re at a loss on how to snag your sweetheart, these tricks and tips should do the job. But if your methods are just too creepy, have a backup plan readily stored in a briefcase.

5) rizenvisual, “Minecraft: Day Blockers”

Creepers normally don’t come out during the day, but overcast weather is fair game. Two real-life Minecraft players need to use their blocked bow and arrow and swords in order to get the better of them (and save the treasure).
