This is a video of billiard player Shane Van Boening sinking six balls on the break of a game of ten-ball. The commentators speculate he’s going to make three, but no, he doubles that. For reference, the most balls I’ve ever made on a break is probably two. MAYBE three.

This is a video of Tom Scott attempting to overcome what he describes as a legitimate phobia of roller coasters (veloxrotaphobia, aka coasterphobia) by riding increasingly intense attractions, from a children’s Runaway Mine Train to…THE NEMESIS.
