Brainiac's: Cool Things in Slow Motion including exploding a balloon filled with gas Answered

The following video shows a few things that we have seen and take for granted, only in slow motion. Some are real eye-openers...


What's with the giant turtle?

Symbolizes something "slow" :-)

No, that's ok, it actually took me a bit of thinking to remember why I put it there LOL

actually I liked the first one, the water filled balloon....

Nice drawing, Goodhart.

I love slow motion cameras!

really I guess you would call them High speed cameras since they pick up detail of high speed motion that you can later play back slowly. (sorry if I am sounding picky :-)

You got one on me then. I could just barely afford the low end digital I have, and the CAM, well the store was offering it with a rebate and a discount, so it was exactly the right price (after rebate it cost me nothing :-)

This was a completely expected result though:

Yes, and what we really miss sometimes. I saw a match light in slow motion once....it is absolutely violent and amazing.

I love the face slap one. It's worth youtubing "Cool stuff in reverse" as well.

Someone call Ernst Mach! Hey Brainiac's, didn't they get busted for faking their experiments?

They faked one for sure, dropping Francium in a bathtub of water, using explosives.
