Morning, gents. Here’s the latest in cool stuff from our daily lap around the Internet on Thursday, November 5, 2015:
Finally, a Metalhead Emoji: Finland’s foreign ministry has released a set of official Finland-specific emojis, including “Sauna,” “Unbreakable” (a Nokia 3310 cell phone) and the “Headbanger.” All we’re asking for: When the American ones debut, they better include a Chuck Norris emoji. [BBC News]
American Muscle, Part 1: The Dodge Viper ACR has set speed records at Laguna SECA and 12 other high-profile race tracks, Dodge parent company Fiat Chrysler announced, meaning that the track-focused Viper holds more racetrack records than any other production car—even the McLaren P1 and the Porche 918 Spyder.
American Muscle, Part 2: Meanwhile, the totally-not-street-legal Ford Mustang Cobra Jet galloped the quarter-mile track in 8.0 seconds at the SEMA show. It’ll list for $99,990—the wheelie bar will set you back an additional $1,995—but you’ll have a hard time getting your hands on one, since Ford’s limiting the production run to just 50 models.

Don’t Rake Your Leaves: Or so says the National Wildlife Federation, which argues that fallen leaves provide habitats for all kinds of different animals—and just clog up landfills anyway. Hey, you don’t need to tell us twice. [NWF]
The Craziest Shot That Didn’t Count: With 1.1 second remaining the second quarter, Celtics forward Jae Crowder made a huge heave toward the basket from 94 feet away—and he sunk the shot. It was an illegal shot, so it resulted in a turnover—but hey, it was still prety cool. [Sporting News]
LeBron Hulks Out: The Cleveland Cavaliers star felt “off rhythm” at the start of their Wednesday-night game against the Knicks, so he tore up the sleeves on his new jersey. “I was frustrated with my shot, I couldn’t make a bucket, so like I said, I had to take it out on something,” he said after the game.
