The Slo Mo Guys

Let me introduce you to the YouTube channel of The Slo Mo Guys [12m]. They just posted a video today, of a Newton's Cradle vs. different projectiles, filmed close to 100K frames per second. They have a lot of other videos, including this look at pinball machines [13m]. There is filler at the beginning of each video to skip if you want to get right into the slo mo action.

Hrm. Okay, the [12m] should be after the first video link, while that first link is just a catalog of videos with no time involved. Sorry!

I do love these. And they always seem to be having such fun.

I still use their Gravity Defying Cat video from 2011 to calm myself down at work.

What's so cool to me is a highly popular and incredibly successful/lucrative YouTube channel was started so Gavin could get a visa to keep working in the US on Red vs. Blue.

It's interesting how they've gone directly from nephews to uncles.

Why doesn't "avuncular" have a reciprocal adjective for nephews?

Loved the pinball vid. All the pinball I've ever played and never knew many of those things were going on.

You should not skip the filler at the beginning because these guys are such lovable doofuses.

I really enjoyed the one where they took a katana to plastic water bottles - fun watching them figure out how to best do it, interesting images and results, and the need to clean the siding of the house afterwards.
