    This is a short video of a whoosh bottle. I think there's alcohol inside. I used to do this with lighter fluid and a 2-liter plastic Coke bottle but that was not nearly as cool. The sound this thing makes is incredible. Apparently it's dangerous though and the bottle can ex... / Continue →

    This is a short video of Youtuber HopeEternity17 popping popcorn with a hair straightener. This is the internet after all. This technique is perfect for the person who only wants one kernel of popcorn at a time and likes eating in the bathroom. I love eating in the bathroom.... / Continue →

    A lot of times in life you have to work with what you're given, and these European paper wasps prove that as they built a rainbow nest when only given colored paper to use as building material. I mean, what the hell else were they gonna do? Not have sex and need to build a ne... / Continue →

    Well, Easter has passed but the Peeps -- the Peeps remain. Peeps, like Twinkies, can survive an apocalypse and will be traded like money by survivors. And here's what they look like after being placed inside a pressure vacuum chamber by the Crazy Russian Hacker. It is much m... / Continue →

    This is a video of two kids performing the rubber bands around a watermelon experiment. If you aren't familiar with the rubber bands around a watermelon experiment, I included a video of the Slow Mo guys performing the same thing. Basically you continue adding rubber bands ar... / Continue →

    This is a short video of crazy experimenter The Backyard Scientist (I do all my science in the garage away from prying drone cameras) pouring molten salt into a water filled aquarium. I did not know molten salt was even a thing, but apparently it becomes a thing when salt is h... / Continue →

    This is a video of CrazyRussianHacker showing what happens to marshmallows when placed inside a vacuum. Of course I already knew what happens to marshmallows put inside a vacuum because my high school physics teacher performed the exact same experiment. Or at least I would kn... / Continue →

    This is a video of astronaut Scott Kelly playing the slowest game of ping-pong with himself aboard the International Space Station using two super-hydrophobic paddles and a giant drop of water. Apparently none of the other astronauts wanted to challenge him to a real ping-pong... / Continue →

    This is a video of molten aluminum addict The Backyard Scientist cooking a steak with his favorite liquid metal. That's the great thing about aluminum -- unlike heavy metals, you can eat a fair amount of it before anything really bad starts to happen. FUN FACT: Until last yea... / Continue →

    This is the first flower grown in space (previously: lettuce). It's a zinnia. Are the petals curled because it was grown in low gravity? Beats me. Maybe it's just a runt. Now I want a space bouquet for Valentine's Day or it will be ruined and I'll throw a tantrum at the r... / Continue →

    Note: Do not watch if you are prone to epilepsy, motion sickness, or are pregnant or might become pregnant if I tear my shirt off and rub my nipples. This is a video from two Geek Squaders at Best Buy putting a GoPro inside a side-load washing machine on their lunch break (o... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Physics Girl demonstrating all the pretty patterns you can make with some ferrofluid and glow stick juice. She explains some of the physics of what's happening to the ferrofluid and glow sticks while she's experimenting with them. TRUE STORY: I ate a gl... / Continue →

    This is a video from 2010 demonstrating why magnetic metal objects aren't allowed around MRI machines. The machine in this video has a four tesla magnet that was about to be decommissioned, so they decided to do some experiments first. The picture above is of the machine tryi... / Continue →

    This is a video from BBC One's 'Richard Hammond's Miracles of Nature' about cuttlefish and the techniques they use to camouflage themselves. They put one cuttlefish to the test by making a little underwater apartment and seeing how well it can blend in with its surroundings. ... / Continue →

    This is a video from Youtuber PowerModz of Tickle Me Elmo getting blasted with a jet engine. You know, because some people have jet engines mounted to the back of their trucks and like to experiment with them. Poor Elmo never stood a chance. Now I totally get why they named ... / Continue →

    Because boredom is the mother of invention, this is a video of a car's airbag being deployed inside a microwave. That microwave never stood a chance. Also, can you imagine the other horrors that poor washing machine has seen? It's probably an appliance graveyard back there. ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a group of guys using an airbag removed from a car to launch a tire. No word whose car that airbag belonged to, but they're probably not alive to complain anyways. The experiment can only be described as a huge success, and ends spectacularly. A real treat... / Continue →

    Because sometimes experiments don't need a hypothesis, this is a video of the Slow-Mo guys whacking different colored blobs of Jello with a tennis racket at 2,5000 frames/second. It cuts them into little square worms. You think they ate the Jello afterward? I would have, but... / Continue →

    A PR2 humanoid robot recently learned to cook pizza and pancakes after watching a series of Youtube videos and reading WikiHow articles. The experiment, which was part of a European project called RoboHow, was designed to help enslave humanity by secretly adding mind-controlli... / Continue →
