    This was the first video of his that I have seen. When I went to show it to my 9 year old daughter last night (she loves both glitter and pranks) she of course already knew who Mark Rober was and had watched several of his videos. After watching a few together, his channel is now one of my subscriptions.

    He does an amazing job of integrating real physics/science/engineering into crazy/fun experiments. That is what makes him so unique.

    The genius of this whole thing is the fart bomb, which causes the person who stole the package to get rid of it quickly, making it easier for Rober to find it and use it again and again and again.

    I would legitimately watch a weekly hour long show of this happening. Something along the lines of "To Catch a Predator."

    It also allows him to say that he engineered the crap out of it, a favorite phrase of engineers.

    Ouch. Saw a Youtube today of a boy band playing on the beach in Indonesia, happy crowd seated in front of them, then from the back of the stage, uninvited, came the tsunami. Boom, everything gone.

    You only need to watch the final 10 seconds or so... whew.

    Woman tries to put gas in a Tesla, hilarity ensues. Please watch at least the first 2:00 because what she does is just too hysterical.

    I feel like there is a honey badger joke somewhere in this video.

    Watch a wild boar just plow through some dude and then come back for 2nds and 3rds before running away.

    Yeah, I remember hitting my head on the backboard a couple of times too. It can be dangerous.

    One time I almost fell off the ladder.




    But I did finish replacing the net.

    With all the high flyers in basketball these days, is any consideration given to a change in the backboard? Such as padding below the rim, or eliminating the backboard below the rim? Players would adapt. Someone could/will get seriously injured.

    That seemed pretty fluky to me. If you watch closely, the kid going for the block ends up getting inadvertently boosted up toward the backboard by the player heís trying to block. He didnít actually jump that high on his own. Thank god he was okay.

    Yeah, general rule of thumb: if you see your opponent start putting wine classes or rolls of masking tape on the table, it's probably not gonna be a normal game and you shouldn't gamble.

    BTW his name is Charles Lakey (aka the "inventor").
