High Speed Suggestions- More Please!

As you may know, but need reminding of, Summer is just around the corner! This means that I will have plenty of light and much needed free time! Geocaching and iBling aside, I plan to get some excellent footage this summer. Only problem is, I need ideas! So, what would you like to see filmed at 300, 600, and 1200 frames per second?

(I decided to post a second topic, seeing as my first one is a little crowded.)

Here's a bunch!

You did exploding watermelon and stomach slap? Amazing! :D

Yep, those are two of my favorite clips. Took a lot of convincing for the ~~victim~~ friend to agree to it, but a few bribes later he saw the clip and said it was worth it. :P
Very good! You should string them end-to end with some music? L

Thanks! In fact, I threw a few clips together last month. I must have forgotten to post them, here they are:

I'll explain the bottom clip at 2:39: we placed a firecracker underneath a bisected soda can, it launched into the air, flew up and over the house, and landed in the driveway on the other side!

Could you remake my exploding carrot? I'd love to see that.

That would be very epic.

Have you ever heard of the discovery channel show Time Warp? It does alot of cool high speed camera stuff. The whole show is about that actually. There was this one cool episode in wich they drop a drop of water into a bucket of water and when the water came up they hit it with another drop. It sounds boring but looked extremely cool.

- A camera flash (would have to be 1200fps I think)
- A camera flash capacitor sparking :)
- Something involving flames- iron filings or a sparkler perhaps? Burning wire wool with a jet lighter?
- Someone being (gently) slapped- in the stomach if you don't want to slap them in the face. It worked on Brainiac :)
- The nearest person with ninja skillz breaking a break board. Alternatively, the nearest person with a very large hammer breaking a board.
- If you can set up the exposure etc. right to get the scanline, an old CRT TV would be good

- The person doing the lazy vault had some promise- ask your neighbourhood traceurs if they want high-speed footage of themselves so they can improve their technique and you get slow-mo PK film- everyone wins.

- Perhaps someone who can type very fast- it would be interesting to see how your fingers move at that speed

- Works bomb inside a watermelon? Micro-disclaimer: don't gratuitously blow things up and annoy your neighbours with loud bangs, it's antisocial.
