Watching A Red-Hot Cannonball Burn Through Layers Of Styrofoam

December 27, 2016

This is a video of The Backyard Scientist Kevin Kohler dropping a red-hot cannonball through layers of Styrofoam to see if the ball will fall through them like they're not even there, or take some time to burn through. I just wish I could have been there to smell it. Then he does the same thing with molten copper. The video ends with a plug for Casper mattresses. How are those mattresses anyways? I'm in the market for a new mattress because my old one's springs are starting to poke out. "You sure about that?" Of course I'm sure about that. "You sure that's the reason you need a new mattress?" Positive. "Sure you didn't soil it?" Did my girlfriend tell you that? I shouldn't drink Red Bull after 6PM.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Aud, who agrees the only red-hot video that the internet really needs is me dancing in my boxers after a shower.

    Should be titled, "Rich kid destroys parents' yard, ozone"

    Also, why didn't he pour molten copper on his new mattress in the name of science?

    It's kind of what I expected...

    If you believe in climate change caused by Humans, let this be the first house to destroy…

    This isn't science, it's a waste of money and resources, and throwing a shit ton of chemicals into the air.

    "Back Yard Scientist" has never done anything all that scientific. He doesn't follow the scientific method at all. He never once mentions a hypothesis. He doesn't analyze the results of his "experiments".

  • I agree, he could have at least worn a white lab coat and goggles.
