That was pretty neat.  Apparently, it took him 3 months to make that.  I can see why.  All the resetting, and rejiggering and accidentally bumping things.  It’s madness, but also pretty ace.

Train vs. Tornado (Tornado wins)

0

The captions on this video explain everything, but because I want to fill up space and not seem like I’m wasting time, here’s the meat.  A Freight train traveling through the state of Illinois “accidentally” crossed paths with a F2 tornado.  I get that trains, especially freight trains, are very difficult to stop.  Though the weather … Continued

If for some reason you wanted to make a steam engine made entirely out of (what I can assume is hand-blown) glass, then the above video should be right up your alley.  I’m sure that is serves some sort of educational purpose, but I’m also sure that whatever purpose it is, this device is far … Continued

High speed video and honey doesn’t usually go together, but this weird quirk of science is worth it.  It goes doubly because he actually explains the math behind the science.  Hopefully you all learn something from this. {reddit}

It’s the marking of the turning point of world history.  The United States of America showed the world that the power of the atom was within their hands, and with one plane, and one bomb, the devastated the town of Hiroshima. This ultimatum unfortunately was not enough, and another bomb was necessary to end the … Continued
