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.

Giant Bubbles

I’m sure this isn’t the first time you’ve seen bubbles like that, but if it is be amazed.

Then, be amazed even more when you watch it in reverse slow motion:

I can think of a few different effects that that can be used to represent in some movies.  Put it on a green-screen (or probably have to be a black screen so you can see the bubble better), and then you can have like ships appear out of nowhere in space, and force fields, and all sorts of other cool sci-fi things.

Sadly, those effects will have no effect on protecting you from Velociraptors.
