Lost City of Atlantis Found?

YouTuber Bright Insight posits that the Eye of Africa is not just the most likely location of Atlantis, but the connection of this new evidence I’m about share makes this case so compelling that it’s practically definitive.

Package Thief vs. Glitter Bomb

We’ve heard of people getting revenge on package thieves by filling old Amazon boxes with dog poo and leaving them out. But this NASA engineer takes it to a whole nother level: he spent six months refining the ultimate package-thief trap, filled with a volcano of exploding glitter and recurring blasts of fart spray, and tricked out with motion sensors, GPS tracking, data transfer to the cloud, and 360-degree camera angles to capture the hilarity. Best part? Two of them open it IN THEIR CARS. Aw, the schadenfreude.

How Fast Does Glass Crack?

Gav and Dan of the The Slow Mo Guys set their super-fast cameras for absolutely insane frame rates to learn how fast 5 millimeter tempered glass cracks. Three pieces of glass were harmed in the making of this video.

Destin of SmarterEveryDay teams up with Turkish mathematician named Doga, whose blog “Bi Lim Ne Güzel Lan” roughly translates roughly to “Science is Awesome Dude.”

Mass Hysteria!

Is actually a real, documented thing. Sam O’Nella Academy explains:
