Because experiments are important, this is a video of a guy cutting a massive rubber band ball in half with a grinder (previously: the same experiment performed with a handsaw with slightly different results). It looks like it's alive. Are rubber bands alive? Do we know for a fact rubber bands aren't worms? I've never been to a rubber band factory before, have you? Somebody also told me cardboard boxes are made from dead trees. I like alive trees. There was a time in my life when I lived in Virginia and if I got really angry I would go out into the woods and chop a tree down with an axe to vent. But that is not me anymore, I hung up my lumberjack shirt and pants a long time ago and only put them on anymore to give the missus a backwoods striptease.
Keep going for the video, but skip to 2:10 for the action to being.
Thanks to Orange Light, who has big dreams of making it on a stoplight one day.
