Lauri and Anni Vuohensilta, the couple behind Hydraulic Press Channel (previously at Neatorama), show us how to peel an apple in a ridiculously fast way, using an apple peeling device and a power drill. Do not try this at home. Bonus: interfering cat.
The whole video is entertaining, but if you can't wait for the fastest apple peel, it's at about five minutes in. There is a faster attempt, but the apple did not survive. I have an apple peeler and a rotary tool; I should try this next time I need a lot of apples peeled, although I would opt for gloves and safety goggles. You have to admit it's more fun than efficient, and then you think about how much fun Lauri and Anni must have in their everyday lives. -via Metafilter
