This is it. It’s the moment you’ve been waiting for. For the past week you’ve done nothing but work, typing away in your cubicle, secluded from the world while the rest of us had an amazing time laughing at hilarious videos and enjoying everything else the internet has to offer.

A Sunken Boat in the Antarctic

List25 compiles lesser-known intriguing information on a variety of subjects. List25 was started by David Pegg (@iamdpegg) and Syed Balkhi (@syedbalkhi).

Out of their frustration, they decided to solve the problem with a new project called List25.
