This 13-minute Vice documentary is about a fellow named Josh who made a fake meth lab in his house as a way to prank his friends. Josh also made a TV news station website that looked just like the real local news site (he cloned the website and bought a domain that looked legit) and ran a realistic video that showed his meth lab being busted and his mug shot. Then he posted the link to the video on Facebook.

The aluminum can is a great invention. And for 60 years, it and its crafty little addition, the pull tab, have made transporting and drinking all of our favorite beers, soft drinks and other beverages about 1,000 percent easier.
