This is a video of Youtuber Warped Perception adding some gunpowder to the fuel mix of a transparent-topped engine. The results *putting on cool guy shades* are certainly explosive. “Those are way too small for your head.” Yeah I think my nephew and I might have had a mix up.
This is ‘Doubts’, a rug that looks like it’s melting onto the floor as designed by structural textile artist Faig Ahmed. But does it have a deeper meaning? Gosh, I sure hope so: “We started the production of this work a month before the whole world plunged into doubts about
This is a video of very capable builder of things and Youtuber DIY Perks constructing a computer inside a table for an ultra-clean look. He kinda reminds me of Theon Greyjoy. Some timestamps to help you navigate the almost 30-minute long video while I build a PC in the bottom

This is a short video of chemistry educator Phil Cook demonstrating both the hydrophobic and combustible properties of lycopodium spores. Lycopodium spores are the dried spores of clubmoss plants (aka ground pine), and have long been used for theatrical special effects (in the form of dust explosions) due to their
This is a breathtaking drone fly-through of Mont Saint-Michel in Normandy, France. Stunning, isn’t it? It almost doesn’t even seem real, it feels like part of a video game or televised fantasy series. And maybe that’s really what it is. Oh — no, I’m being told that it actually is
