Cola in a Humidifier

Why not? I’m no stranger to doing stupid things in my youth, maybe it’s time and wisdom of age. I’m not sure why someone would want to do this, but hey, everyone has to start their “scientist life” somewhere.

How Much Corn is In a Can

It turns out, esteemed scientist and YouTube Star CuriosityBeyond determined there are roughly 1.5 cobs of corn in a can of corn. It’s hard to say how big the can is, but it looks like a normal can you would make for a summer BBQ. I’m not sure about his cooking methods, but that’s not my microwave, I have no ability to judge.

You should keep this in mind while you cook your first corn on the cob this weekend. Save those cobs, then buy a bunch of cans of corn for 4th of July and use this method. It’s certified faster because there’s no shucking involved. There’s no messy strings on the corn, and it cooks faster too!

The Hail Cannon

Did you know about these? I didn’t until cursing around reddit (more so than usual being stuck inside). It’s a Hail Cannon. Apparently it’s useless, but it’s still pretty crazy. Basically a controlled explosion directed upwards to try and break up hail stones before they can fall to the ground. I’m not so sure how well it would work, and the research is inconclusive because the weather is, as always unpredictable.

Snorkeling in a Forest

A few years ago it rained so hard and so quickly that a river flooded in Brazil and completely covered this hiking trail with many feet of crystal clear water. I know what you’re saying, when rivers flood here, they’re muddy, danger messes. Well this river is in a protected park in Brazil, and the trail is private.

The water didn’t stay up that long, by day’s end it had receded back to somewhat normal levels apparently. Still, I think it’s pretty neat. In fact, I think it’s exceptionally neat that somewhere on earth everything is set up perfectly to flood so calmly.

Drifting Trains

There really isn’t anything else to say regarding this video except that it’s pretty ace and you should watch it.

If only real life trains could be this crazy, we would have some killer new Olympic sports.

All of you people out there with these wooden train tracks, I’m looking to you to put something together which is 100x better than this video. I expect it. All 7 readers of this blog.

Glue Gun Art

This is pretty intense, it looks cool, but I also bet that it has a tacky feeling to it. You know, from afar it looks pretty cool, but when you get up close, it’s kinda blah, kinda not worth it. You know kinda just “why”.

Isn’t that everything related to hot glue though?

Miniature Bridge

Remember that miniature concrete building that some guy made?  Here’s a bridge version of it.  It looks slightly better, except the on and off ramp look way too steep for the scale.  I gotta admit, the whole thing of building real life miniatures is pretty cool, but it’s pretty strange too.  Like I get it if you’re using it to demonstrate something, but to do it for fun?  I don’t need a scale model bridge.

Crazy Tesla Coil Gun

Ok, last time there was a LASER Gun, today it’s a Tesla Coil.  It’s ridiculous.  The Tesla Coil is not quite as dangerous, but also completely terrifyingly dangerous, science is weird like that.  Anyway, this channel is pretty neat, you should watch it to learn more about things.

Strange Juggling Balance Thing

I really don’t see a need for this, but it exists because someone made it.  That someone is Ameron Rosvall, a prop maker and juggler (according to his Instagram), also the owner of a pretty sick beard.  He’s got some pretty neat contraptions on his Instagram, but that one above is the king.  He looks so satisfied getting the balls to remain in their loops just dancing around.  He’s got some pretty good hand-eye-chin coordination too, check out this one:

The smaller ring works too 😃

It’s Happened

It’s no secret that I am a great Jake and Amir fan. It might be immature of me but it’s one of those things that has stuck with me for many years. Every so often I go back and watch videos of them at random and I still crack up. It’s hard to choose a favorite from among their hundreds of videos, each one has great lines and moments. They’ve had many recurring jokes over the years, but one that was small (pun intended) and used a few of times has an unnaturally large following. I’m talking about going dickless for Chiklis. That’s right it’s an unexplainable phrase that made it’s debut in “Reddit” was followed up a year and a half later in “Reddit 2” until it was referenced a third and final time in Part 6 of the Finale.

It got to a point where people would @MichaelChiklis on Twitter the joke.  Eventually he found out and enjoyed it enough to stick with it.  Well this past weekend the joke has reached it’s conclusion.  Michael Chiklis himself went dickless:
