Dishwasher Cooking

Did you know you could use your dishwasher to cook a lasagna?  I didn’t.  In fact, I had never even heard of this myth, but someone sent it into the Mythbusters.  And while shooting another episode, they decided to test this myth at the same time.  Spoiler, you can.

awesome the greatest video

The Blue Angels

The Blue Angels are awesome.  Watching them perform is awesome (I’ve done it before), actually riding along with them is all levels of awesome (I’m talking to you Adam Savage)

For now I’ll have to be content with watching this video taken from inside the cockpit of one. And I don’t know what they claim, but I felt fine watching it all the way through with no sick feeling at all.

awesome DIY internet science video

LEGO Ball of (death)

This is the best Mythbusters video ever.  They took about 1 million LEGO bricks and made a giant, 7foot wide “ball” out of them.  It didn’t really work, but it has one of the most spectacular things I’ve ever seen happen, I won’t spoil it for you, but skip to 3:09 in the video if you want to see it.

Now, I love LEGOs, but I think this was alittle wasteful, I mean, they took all the LEGO bricks in North America, and then another half a million from someone else all in the name of Science, and good TV.  Well, hey, it was pretty damn impressive.
