With over 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) Matt Harding, “Where the Hell is Matt Takes 10,000 volts for Science”

Watch Matt Harding, the man who’s made his name flying around the world and dancing like a joyful idiot in front of famous landmarks, take 10,000 volts of electricity from a Tesla gun shot by The Oatmeal’s Matthew Inman. This is as close to the embodiment of the Internet as you can get without the presence of cats.

2) Scott Rose, “Shit Apple Fanatics Say, Part 1”

The new iPhone 5 is due to be announced next week, which means it’s time for another round of self-deprecating humor from all your friends hip enough to call themselves Apple addicts. In this clip, Austinite Scott Rose details the wonderful world of a life without viiiirusessss.

3) Ultra Brawl, “The Journey of Walter White”

First of all, spoiler alert city! Second, this tribute to the great AMC series “Breaking Bad” plays out as a tremendous supercut detailing protagonist Walter White’s evolution from a sympathetic, desperate man into a cold-hearted, drug slinging villain. Just don’t watch it if you’re only on Season Three.

4) Portrait Studio, “O.A.R. and Daily Grace”

Marc Roberge has served as the singer of pop band O.A.R. ever since the band’s inception in 1996, but the boys are looking for a new lead. Off on a shoot for their new album, contract photographers Stu Finley have to find a clever way to get Roberge out and their new singer (played by My Damn Channel’s Daily Grace) in.

5) Hannah Hart, “My Drunk Kitchen: Silent Movie!”

Who said all Canadian chefs get loud when they’re sauced? Haven’t you ever heard of a silent movie? My Drunk Kitchen host Hannah Hart takes you back to the 1910s with this wine-induced tutorial in how to eat breakfast foods.
