Hypnotic Little Video Uses Bowling Balls To Demonstrate Basic Physics

Everyone knows bowling balls are for knocking things down. But it turns out they're also pretty good at shoring up our knowledge of basic physics. Just have a look at this strangely hypnotic YouTube video showing a line of bowling balls on strings swinging back and forth like pendulums.
At the start of the "Pendulum Wave Demonstration" video, which was posted on Sept. 7 by YouTube user Maria Ikenberry, the balls swing side by side. But slowly they drift out of phase to form a wavelike pattern--because the strings that hold them are of different lengths and thus cause the balls to swing at different speeds. Then, amazingly, the balls fall back into phase at about 2:40.
What's going on here?
"It's something like if you had a whole bunch of clocks but each one was a little slower than the next," Dr. Jordan Ellenberg, a professor of mathematics at the University of Wisconsin and the author of How Not To Be Wrong told The Huffington Post in an email. "They would start in phase, then slowly drift out of phase--but if you chose the differences in speeds carefully, there would be a moment at some point later in the cycle where they all came into phase again."
You have to see it to believe it.

Herd Of Deer Encounters Strange New Creature Called 'Cat'

What happens when a small group of deer and a cat come in contact for the first time? We think it will go a little something like this...
From the journal of Captain Buck Bambi: 
"It's been three days since we left the forest, and we've come across a bizarre little creature. We initially called it a 'Slippers,' since that was the name on the tag, but have since learned it's called 'cat.' The cat seems as curious about us as we are of it, but will let us only get so close. Further investigation has shown the cat appears to enjoy batting around our short flopping tails and works itself into a frenzy over a curious red dot the humans control. More as it develops."
Okay, well, actually you can find out by watching the video. So, please, enjoy this video of a cat and a small group of deer trying to figure each other out.

This Greedy Kitty Knows Exactly How To Charm His Owner Into Giving Him More Kisses

Every pet owner knows that look. You know, the one that your furry friend gives you when the lil' guy wants something?
Well, in this video uploaded to YouTube, a cunning kitty proves he's got that look down, and is using it to collect more kisses (insert evil laugh here). When the cat cocks his head with a twinkle in his eye, his owner turns to mush and gives in to his demand for another kiss.
And when that doesn't work, the cat pats his owner's face, as if to say, "Whoa, there. You forgot something!"
This cat's cute smooch-summoning tactics are so effective, you'll probably be blowing kisses at your computer screen by the end of the video.

Everything You Can't Do When You're Not A Toddler

Walking around naked, adding "and a half" to your age and throwing your entire body on the floor when you discover there is only one cookie left -- these are just a few examples of the many glorious things you can really only get away with when you're under the age of 5. And anyone who has spent a significant amount of time with a toddler has likely imagined what it would be like to follow that tiny person's lead, though.
Now, in a video made for NickMom's "Things You Can't Do" series, comedy duo Tripp and Tyler show us what would happen if an adult man played toddler for the night. At a party. With other grown-ups. It all goes down exactly as expected. If only the tots could learn from this experiment.

Mama Duck Teaches Her Ducklings Life Lessons With Some Tough Love

There comes a time in every mama duck's life when she must trust her ducklings to take a leap of faith; when she must watch as her young 'uns spread their wings and try to jump up a flight of stairs.
All it takes is a little bit of encouragement and a whole lot of motherly patience.
The video above was uploaded by YouTube user Jason David, who filmed the scene in Red Bank, New Jersey, in front of a local school. A fitting setting, indeed, for these darling ducklings to learn an important life lesson in hard work and perseverance.
Mom sets her expectations high, and waits for her ducklings to meet the Herculean challenge.

This Scrappy Little Chipmunk Can More Than Take Care Of Itself, Thank You

Whoa. Talk about a David and Goliath story.
We'll go out on a limb and say that it's rare to see an escaping chipmunk turn tail and run -- straight back to the cat that captured it.
But this tiny ninja won't stop till it gives the cat a piece of its mind.
Don't worry, the video has a happy ending. The brave little chipmunk eventually makes a break for it while the cat takes a minute to reflect on its life choices. Watch the video above to see the full exchange.

Helicopters Just Should NOT Go Upside Down Like This

Helicopters can feel dangerous enough when they're flying normally. But when they start doing flips, spins and nose dives, you get nervous just watching.
This week, Red Bull posted a YouTube video of daredevil Chuck Aaron -- the first and only civilian pilot ever to be licensed to perform helicopter aerobatics -- doing just that.
The 54-year-old pilot has spent more than 20,000 hours -- or 833 days -- in the air, so you can assume he knows what he's doing with these stunts. Without that experience, it's safe to say videos like the one above wouldn't be possible.

Police Officer Undresses To Perform 'Skin To Skin' Treatment On Man With Hypothermia

One police officer in Canada went beyond the call of duty in a desperate attempt to save a man's life, last week.
After high winds caused a 23-year-old man's canoe to capsize on the St. Lawrence River near Montreal on Thursday, he swam through the freezing waters to get to the people he spotted from a distance, QMI Agency reported.
Fortunately, he was wearing a life jacket and made it to shore where he used the little energy he had left to climb up to them, RightThisMinute reported.
One of the bystanders was a nurse and promptly called 911. When Police Officer David Jutras came to the scene, the nurse recommended using a "skin to skin" technique. So Jutras took off his bulletproof vest and shirt, and laid down on the man to give him as much body heat as possible.
Paramedics later came to the scene and took the 23-year-old, who was showing signs of hypothermia, to a hospital. He was released on Thursday night, according to QMI Agency.
This isn't the first time that police officers have come to the rescue after a canoe capsized. Last summer, officers rescued four people in northwestern Alberta after their boat capsized. Two of them were stranded in the middle of a river, and were forced to cling to a rock for 16 hours until they were found.

Nuclear-Sized Asteroid Blasts Hit the Earth a Lot More Than You Think

Nuclear-Sized Asteroid Blasts Hit the Earth a Lot More Than You Think

That an asteroid apocalypse could wreck the Earth certainly seems plausible, if inevitable. That it will happen, say, next month seems a bit crazy. It's probably due to our own ability to rationalize away the potential for doom—which is a good thing, sure, one that keeps us from cowering in fear constantly—but that doesn't meanasteroids don't fly by relatively often.
In fact, according to B612, those asteroids don't always miss. The group tallied up data on asteroid entries around the world, and found that from 2000 to 2013, a total of 26 asteroids made impacts equivalent to nuclear detonations between 1 and 600 kilotons in strength.
The comparison is apt, as the impacts were tracked by the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization's global network of infrasound monitors, which are designed to track nuclear tests, not asteroids. Most notably, we all remember theChelyabinsk meteor, which was estimated at being the equivalent to about 500 kilotons of TNT. Now, not all impacts are that big, but the frequency is a bit alarming, and B612's video isn't helping:

In a press conference today, the group, which was co-founded by a pair of former astronauts, didn't hold back.
"This shows that asteroid impacts are not rare, but actually 3-10 times more common than we previously thought," said co-founder Dr. Ed Lu, who's spent time on the Space Shuttle, ISS, and Soyuz. “The fact that none of these asteroid impacts shown in the video was detected in advance shows that the only thing preventing a catastrophe from a 'city-killer' sized asteroid is blind luck. The goal of the B612 Sentinel Mission is to find and track asteroids decades before they hit Earth, allowing us to easily deflect them.”
Lest you think Lu is a bit too doom-and-gloom, let it also be known that his resume includes leading the advanced projects group at Google; in short, he's a smart guy. And when he starts talking about asteroid disasters being a function of luck, it's enough to make your ears perk up. He and B612 have put their money where their mouths are, too: the groups Sentinel asteroid-tracking mission is a rather impressive effort for a private firm.
Of course, the knowledge isn't new. As we noted last October, the UN is stepping up its efforts for asteroid monitoring, which is definitely a positive sign. There's also theJPL Sentry system, which NASA describes as a "a highly automated collision monitoring system that continually scans the most current asteroid catalog for possibilities of future impact with Earth over the next 100 years." For those who like suspense, Sentry posts info about potential collisions online.
But those programs are largely focused on, well, large objects. And as the last decade's worth of data show, some asteroids of significant size do slip through the cracks. Now, to be fair, those 26 impacts spread out over the whole globe also show how there's a rather tiny chance that, say, your house gets blown up by a space rock in the next 13 years.
Yet that's beside the point, as far as B612 is concerned. It's easy to worry about the Big One, just as it's easy to then rationalize that, hey, just because it happened to the dinosaurs doesn't mean it'll happen to us. But, as these data show, it's not just the Hollywood-worthy giant asteroids that we need to worry about. Asteroids big and small will keep raining down, and unless we get better and trying to stop them, one is eventually going to hit home.
