Collection of slow motion videos and zero gravity videos, and super hi speed trick shot pool videos, etc... Some in WMV, some in QT.

Jello Cube Drop is a favorite. Also, this one of people being punched in the stomach is not bad.

Yeah, that jello cube one is definitely the winner. What a neat thing to see.

That's awesome. How come more haven't commented? So little class! Thanks for all this, I've got to create a whole new folder in my misc video clips directory for these...

I particularly like the Bouncing Rubber Yo-Yo Ball. The object itself seems really funny. Does anyone knows where I could get it from? I want one.

I can't hit the epicempire.com link from here (Florida on Verizon fiber optic) but our DNS has been shaky since Katrina....
Mad propz to Monochrome for the wget love, any hope of busting out a slurpy string of flags for the Playing with Time musicinmybrain gave us? (I would have to spend far too much time staring at the man page to get anything practical).

I started watching these on my large flat-screen monitor... and my cat was MESMERIZED. Eventually she jumped on my desk and sat rapt, then stood on her hind legs and started pawing at the screen (esp. when I played the ones of the dogs).

It's funny... that cat can definitely perceive (and is frequently fascinated by) video images, while my other cat walks right past TVs and monitors with complete disinterest.
