Drilling rig pipe connection

Roughnecks at work smoothly running a kelly drive drilling rig exploring for oil. They’re making a connection or “pipe stab” to continue drilling downward. You can see why this job is high risk and requires concentration and skill.

These guys gotta be strong so they can make those big bucks. Still, it’s a killer workout.

Musket: 3 shots in 46 seconds

This musket, and variants, were used by the British Army from the early 1700s until the 1800s. Please note, the cartridge would have contained the musket ball. It was not put in separately. To load and fire the flintlock musket the soldier had to carry out a set sequence of movements. First, he bit one end off a paper cartridge containing powder and musket-ball. He dribbled a small amount of powder into the priming pan, and clicked the steel (a metal plate which the flint would strike) back to cover it.

Quite difficult if crouched behind a rock for cover. Beware of the hang fire.

Giant revolver and escaping gases

A simple experiment where we show how much pressure comes out of the cylinder gap of a revolver- also how much comes out of the muzzle brake of this .460 S&W revolver.

We posted Taofledermaus’ video about this gun in the Slinks last Sunday. Here it is, in case you missed it. [7:09]

Volkswagen crash tests

2018 Volkswagen Tiguan driver-side small overlap crash – GOOD

2017 Volkswagen Jetta passenger-side small overlap crash – ACCEPTABLE

There are so many variables here. How do they get the car to travel the distance and get up to speed and then precisely hit the marks taped on the hood? And who cleans up the mess afterward?

Evolution of the Jeep 4×4 Utility Vehicle

The original 4×4 utility vehicle by Jeep. First manufactured during World War II, it evolved post-war into the civilian Jeep CJ, and inspired both an entire category of recreational 4WDs and several generations of military light utility vehicles.

Today, it seems as if they’ve lost their way. The original Jeep went the same way that the Ford Bronco did.
