Man Using Compressed Air To Float A Variety Of Different Everyday Objects

Note: Turn your volume down -- way down.

This is a video from Youtuber Latheman666 demonstrating that, with the right nozzle and angle of spray, you can get a lot of different lightweight objects to float in a stream of compressed air (in this case several light bulbs, a marble, a top, a vibrator disguised as a nail pen, a tomato, a giant bouncy ball, a keychain, a walnut, a boiled egg and some other stuff). Now this is my kind of hobby: zero purpose but fun to watch. Plus if I zone out (which is easy for me) I can kind of pretend I'm watching things float in outerspace. And isn't outerspace where we'd all rather be right now? "I don't know, I was sort of leaning towards some beer and wings at Hooters." Put a shirt on, I'll order the Uber.

Keep going for the video, but feel free to skip around but do not feel free to have your volume up full blast you will hurt yourself.

Thanks to Dev, who agrees standing < sitting < lying down < floating.

    That's not the best way to peel a kiwi.

    theirs a fancy science term for what is happening i cant remember it but basicly the air if flowing in a concave motion after it hits the object causing it to spin and hold in a specific area looping in a air current.

    My best guess is Bernoulli's principle.

    First: What kind of black magic is this?
    Second: What kind of demonic chicken did he get that egg from?

  • GeneralDisorder

    The boiled egg? Must have come from a boiled chicken.
