I just thought that you should know that.  Yes it’s not that scientific of a test, and yes all the theoretical math and science should answer the question for you, but I thought you should know for yourself by watching this six minute video.  Don’t say I never did anything for you.

Deter Package Theives

I like Mark Rober, some of his videos are cool, some are awkward, most are enjoyable.  This one is really interesting he goes into how he stalked his package thieves, then how he enlisted the help of his friend to design and build a glitter+fart bombing dummy package. I don’t want to spoil anything, but … Continued

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”.

Especially since this machine is … Continued

Such is the case surrounding trying … Continued

Fragile Engines

Some of the Eclipse

Here’s some 360° video of this Monday’s total Solar Eclipse.  Witnessing this event in person was amazing.  We drove 16 hours down to Greenville South Carolina only to be stuck in clouds. Not to worry though, because that was a major fear of ours, we were prepared and rushed in the opposite direction of the … Continued
