Nothing calms the nerves like a perfectly looping GIF, except maybe a shot of good whiskey. You shouldn't drink 11 shots of whiskey in five minutes, but you can definitely get lost in these 11 GIFs. Hell, take 10 minutes. We read the entire internet, and these babies are the most satisfying, hypnotic short animations produced over the last 360 days. When respite is needed, bury your head in your smartphone and relax with salsa dancing aliens, celestial snugglers, Op Art butts, and universal thoughts animated by our favorite GIF-makers. Remember, 2017 is just a few days away.
