Five pieces of utter frivolity for a hearty dose of Friday distraction.

So many backflips

The video below shows some insane moves from French skier Candide Thovex, who just so happens to be one of the best in the world. WARNING: If you are prone to motion sickness I suggest you stay away from going full screen.

Exploding KIttens is the latest Kickstarter smash hit. The project was 100% funded in only 20 minutes and 1000% funded in less than an hour. It is currently sitting at $2.9 million which is considerably larger than their original goal of $10,000. At this rate it looks like it could even knock The Coolest out of the number one spot for most funded Kickstarter.

And they enjoy it a little bit too much.
