Dressing up in a suit of armor

A video showing how to dress in and wear armor (harness) from late 14th century. The harness is a detailed reconstruction based on the effigy of the Black Prince (1330-1376) in the Canterbury Cathedral, other relevant effigies, paintings in 14th century manuscripts and late 14th century armour displayed in The Royal Armories in Leeds.

Quite a long involved process and the entire suit weighs 36kg (about 80 lbs.)

Wind turbine fire

Getting energy comes at a cost. This happened in Diepholz, Germany earlier this month.

You were hoping that blade would stick in the ground straight up, weren’t you? I sure was.

Rifle rounds chain reaction

Is it possible for one round of ammunition to set off another round, and that round set off the next, thus creating a chain-reaction? I’ve never seen any videos of this being tested. I made a contraption to test this theory and showed the rig in a video last week. I asked the viewers to predict what they though would happen. Nearly everyone had NO confidence in the way I was going to do it. I used the wrong rounds, wrong type of tubing, wrong bb gun, etc. People were using phystics, citing Mythbusters, and applying their own experience to come up with answers. Most answers were why it wouldn’t work. 2 people DID call it and guessed correctly!
