Guy Builds Massive Coconut-Destroying Mousetrap

May 3, 2017

This is a video of the Backyard Scientist (who's gravitating less towards backyard science and more towards backyard spectacle) testing the giant mousetrap he built that requires an electric winch to pull the spring down, and closes at speeds up to 42MPH, crushing anything in its way. In this case: some watermelons, coconuts, a model volcano (???), hardhat, and a balloon of non-Newtonian fluid. That thing looks terrifying, and there's no way I'd be squatting as close to it as he does when he sets it off. You know I had a mouse problem a little while ago so I bought some mousetraps but when I was baiting them with cheese one snapped on my finger and then I started feeling bad about the mice and now I still have a mouse problem. But is it really a problem if you've named them all?

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to hairless, who agrees that is not how you harvest coconut milk.
