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.

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.

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.

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.

Super LASER

There’s really no need for this, but like a good America, it had to be made.  I don’t know if he’s American, but it doesn’t matter, this is American to the core.

I need one.

18 Years

Can you believe that it’s been eighteen years since that faithful morning when the world stopped?  Eighteen years.  There are teenagers alive now who you can have an adult conversation with who weren’t alive when it happened.  There are young adults who were still in diapers when it happened.  It was a terrible event, but it will not be forgotten.  The world might have changed significantly since that faithful morning, but we should always remember the time right after it when we as a country were united together.  We must go back to those times and we will realize that we can make it through anything.

WW2

Today marks the 80th year since the bloodiest war in the history of man.  Early in the day, Hitler’s Nazi Germany invaded Poland setting off the spark of events that spiraled into World War II.  It’s bee sugar coated, it’s been glorified, it’s been everything under the sun, but at the end of the day, it was a war.  A terrible war with atrocities all over the place.  Terrible things happened, and terrible scars are still healing all over the world.

Thankfully we’ve lived in relative peace for the last 80 years, let us hope that it remains that way for further generations to come.

This is ridiculous.  Plain old ridiculous.  Apparently it’s some Red Bull event called Crashed Ice.  It is as dangerous as it looks, one of those people broke their tailbone, which is apparently excruciating.  I have no intention of ever trying this.  Watching it on the other hand, I could be for that, maybe.

What happens when you Breath In Noble Gas

Crazy things.  Of course you know that helium gives you chipmunk voice. The others get surprising.  I think my favorite is Xenon, “It almost feels like it’s attracted to the ground”.

It should be noted that this is something you should never do as they very likely can kill you if done in excess and done without any thought to safety.  This guy seems like he should not be doing them.  Especially not with anyone around to help him.  But hey, he good for him.

17 Years

The world changed forever 17 years ago.  I remember, I was in highschool, at our welcome to the new school year Mass.  When it was over, the president of the school announced it to us all (it was only around 9am).  We went back to our classrooms and watched it unfold throughout the day.

Some teachers tried to give lessons, some let us watch the TVs and see what was going on.  Most people were quiet and somber.

I remember coming home and listening to the fighter jets flying overhead.  I live just 30 miles north of Manhattan.  F-16s (I remember they only had 1 tail) were flying alot that evening.

I remember watching at home as Building #7 fell.  It didn’t seem like things were ever going to stop.

I’ll never forget it, will you?
