Valuable Information: Jet Engine Versus Human Face

February 9, 2018

jet-engine-vs-face.jpg

This is an entirely too long video (skip to 9:50 for the best action) of what a jet engine might do to a human face. UNSURPRISING SPOILER: Melt it off. So, if you were ever wondering if it would be a good idea to get jet-engined directly in the face, obviously the answer is what are you waiting for?!

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Tank, who agrees that's one hell of a hairdryer.

    that guys bare hands were getting a little close there at the end, he had one glove on, i'd have been wearing like an entire full body lavaproof welding suit

    That's really destructive. I mean you know it's not a good idea to be anywhere near it but to see it practically blow up cars moving over 10 yards away is pretty impressive.

    Replacement of the Tide pod challenge? I can't wait for the YouTube videos and FB posts. I'll definitely hit like and even hearts on those.

    As someone that has worked at DFW airport for about 10 years, I've seen a 777-300's engine send a box truck flying nearly 100 ft. They were running it's engine at 25% and it crossed the jet blast zone, just started tumbling. I wouldn't be afraid of the heat, I would be afraid of the incredible wing speeds.

    YES!

    So, that's what the Ark of the Alliance actually contained...

    Interesting experiment but I can’t say its ever crossed my mind to stick my face at the back of a jet engine. Although I could do with a bit of colour as I’m as pale as a ghost. I’m sure about a 10th of a second would have me glowing.

  • Big Dog on Krampus

    go to 9:50 for the action

  • TheQiwiMan

    Speaking from experience here, go to W 33rd street and Capital for the REAL action...

    An apt metaphor for how I'm blown away by the fresh web content of geekologie.com each and every (most) mornings.
