The Yellow Pages: Rocket Powered Knife Vs Phonebook

September 12, 2017


This is a video of a 200/km (~125MPH) rocket knife attempting to cut a phonebook in half (previously: the same experiment vs a quadrocopter). Is it successful? Yes -- it is very successful. Me? I am not very successful at all, especially with the ladies. Nobody ever swipes right. "You look like an anthropomorphic turd." I thought it was what's on the inside that counts. "You really think what's inside is much better?" No....not really. Hey -- I'm not paying you for these little life coaching lessons, right?

Keep going for the video, but skip to 3:00 unless you're big into padding.

Thanks to Adrian, who agrees the only purpose of phonebooks anymore is letting your kids sit on them in the bath so they can see of the side of the tub.

    Enough to see 3:17 to 3:27. 10 secs of video in a middle of 4 and 25 secs of nothing. There are too much videos like this nowadays.

    But thanks for sharing.

    what is this 'phone book'?

  • GeneralDisorder

    People used to use their voice and a magical thing called a "telephone" to talk to people in other places.

    And books are things that are made of dead tree carcass with information drizzled inside with some magical liquid color stuff that dries eventually.

    Anyway, based on the context clues a "phone book" is either a book that talks to other books far away or it's a phone that uses some liquid color to record information in a physical way.

    I could be missing the point altogether though.
