How it’s Actually Made

While looking through videos to fall asleep to last night I came across this inconspicuous video on Frozen Pizza. At first it seems innocent enough, but you soon pick up on some weirdness. Eventually it goes full on satire. Hilarious satire.

We spent the better part of an hour watching one after another. It gets really good when you get to an episode where you’ve actually seen the official “How it’s Made” version.

There’s tons of them, and they’re short segments, you should watch a bunch!

Super Fast Plane

For real though, how can you even control something going to fast? Like, I get it when you’re watching it form the first person point of view, and you have something giant, and you’re a few hundred or thousand feet above the ground. But a little R/C plane. Damn, some people are just skilled.

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 Tallest Waterslide

This is a nice 10 minute video going over the history of the development of the world’s largest waterslide. You should know, it didn’t really work out that great from the beginning. Think those terrible Roller Coaster Tycoon slides you’d make where everyone died. Yea, those.

That’s right, it’s worse than the one at Action Park. You remember that one, the one with the loop. Remember that, something worst than Action Park was allowed to be built and people to ride it. That’s crazy.

Well, it’s summer time now, be prepared for a whole new season of crazy.

The Life Straw

It seems like everyone has one of these. Or at least anyone who did any hiking or other outdoor activities. I have one, I never used it. But I trusted the sale and bought one anyway. Well, being stuck inside has got people doing all sorts of crazy things with their time.

Have you wondered if a life straw works? Wonder no more, a decent test to show that if you really needed one it would actually work.

The mighty engines of the SR-71

There are few airplanes as interesting as the SR-71. For those who don’t know (hopefully not many), it’s the fastest manned air breathing aircraft. That’s a mouthful isn’t it? Basically, like everything humans do, instead of simple “fastest aircraft ever”, we had to come up with a bunch of other criteria to subclass everything.

Anyway, the power of the SR-71 comes from it’s engines. Watching the video above to learn about all the crazy engineering that went into place to get the world’s fastest plane built. The video reminds me of those cutaway books you’d read as a kid. Except now it’s animated and narrated..

Pond Water ion Quarantine

First off, you need a natural pond somewhere near by to try this. If you had a suitable artificial pond you might be able to get somewhere, but it would be much smaller. Man made ponds are meant to be clean and clear. Yes there’s some level of dirtiness in them, but overall, they’re clean and clear. You wouldn’t get all those neat things living in the water.

Depth Charges

I’d say this was quarantine related, but probably not since quarantine wasn’t as in effect a month or so ago. I have to say it’s pretty fun though. Some unnecessary jump cuts in the video, but overall it’s neat.

Kind of makes me want to try it too. Also seems like all the LEGOs are still usable which makes sense given that these are small “depth charges”, and the water should distribute the pressure pretty well.

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.

Full Metal Arrow


Or something like that anyway. I greatly dislike the reddit video system that doesn’t allow you to embed just the video, instead you need to embed the whole post. I guess that’s what they’re aiming for, but it’s still annoying.
Anyway, look at these two idiots, they aren’t really going to get the round to explode, but at least they know what’s happening, and that it’s dangerous. That’s a step better than most idiots.
