How to Make an Edible Apple Swan!
 
03:29
How to make a decorative, and completely edible, apple swan! I made a few modifications to the original idea, to get the effect you see here.

There may be risks associated with these projects that require adult supervision. Music By: ("Little Voices" -- Instrumental). http://bit.ly/ScottBrendoiTunes Project Inspired By: A friend in England in 2001 showed me the idea originally. I also found http://youtu.be/FNXmuakUi4M to help refresh my memory, and then made a few of my own changes to make the swan look better and more attractive. I got the inspiration for using seeds as eyes in this video: http://youtu.be/jg6sWO3z0BQ Project History & More Info: I remembered someone showing me how to make an apple into a swan while I was in England in 2001. I can't remember who it was though, and I just remember that it was a nice try, and although the wings looked cool, and head and neck were terrible. I really liked the idea though, so I spent an entire day cutting up apples in different ways to see if I could make it better. I also saw a video online where someone used apple seeds to make eyes (http://youtu.be/jg6sWO3z0BQ) which was really awesome, so I tried to incorporate that in. I ended up with this method for making the apple swan, which I think really looks incredible, and we ended up putting them on display for some dinner guests we had that night.

Self Freezing Coca-Cola (The trick that works on any soda!)
 
03:18
Take any bottle of soda, and get it to freeze on command! This “super cool" trick works with cans of soda as well. Some quick links to a few of the materials I used: [✓] Coke: http://amzn.to/2cjDmmt [✓] Quaich (little silver dish from Scotland) :http://amzn.to/2cGNxy3 To date, I haven't seen any tutorials on exactly how to get this "self-freezing coke" effect, so I'm excited to release this video in response to thousands of viewer requests.

Glass bottles are not recommended, as the ice expands when freezing and can shatter the glass explosively. Use of video content is at own risk. Music By: http://www.MachinimaSound.com (Remember The Dreams) Project Inspired By: The viral YouTube video: "How to Chill A Coke In just a second!!" (http://youtu.be/ngt74e1DxPU) and the process of nucleation was inspired by "Self-Freezing Coke - Crazy from Kong!" http://youtu.be/j07SweYJTSM. Project History & More Info: I knew water could be turned to instant ice (http://youtu.be/sQdLttUh_b0), but was amazed to see that soda could be supercooled as well. The anomaly of "self freezing soda" has been observed by many people, usually by accident. Some people put a soda in the freezer to chill it, but then forget about it. When they've remembered and gone to get it, it's liquid until they open it, leaving them puzzled. Some people have noticed the effect by leaving the soda outside in cold temperatures. There is a vending machine in Hong Kong that sells supercooled Coke bottles, and the instructions to trigger nucleation is the same as in this video, however they recommend taking a sip when the cap is on. I believe this is to increase the chances of impurities being introduced into the liquid, making nucleation more likely. From what I've seen, the results in this experiment form an even thicker slush than the vending machine in Hong Kong. To get this effect, I put 4 bottles of 500mL (16.9 oz) soda in a freezer set at -24ºC (-11ºF) between 3:15- 4:00 hours. The longer they are in, the more dramatic and solid the slushy freeze will be. However, anytime after 3:15 hours there is a chance of them freezing before you take them out. Every freezer will be a little different temperature, and I've noticed the location of your bottles in the freezer makes a dramatic difference on freeze times. For best results, choose one consistent location in your freezer, and play around with freeze times to see what works best for you. In my freezer, the middle of the center rack settles at -24ºC (-11ºF) and takes 3:15 to super chill 4 bottles. Remember that the longer the freezer door is open, the more cold air will escape, and it will make your freeze times take much longer because your freezer has to cool down again. I've also noticed that the more frozen items you have in your freezer, the faster your soda will chill. In contrast, the less items in your freezer, the longer your soda will take to cool. Bottom line is, use a consistent environment for your experiments, and you'll get consistent results! I also experimented with 2 litter bottles, and had great results between 4-5 hours. The whole bottle slushifies in an instant. I experimented with Gatorade, Fresca, Mexican Sprite, Rootbeer, Orange sodas, Coke, Diet Coke, in bottle form, as well as in cans. I had super cooled success with them all! The trick to getting the 3 second slush, is quickly releasing the pressure in the bottle and re-securing the cap, flipping the bottle upside down, and back upright again. This is because the forming ice crystals will be moved around the length of the bottle, and trigger nucleation for the rest of the soda. If you were to just take the cap off, ice will form, and it will slowly spread downward, but might take upwards of 2 minutes for the bottle to completely freeze. Removing the pressure very slowly from the bottle, can keep the soda liquified, and give you the choice opportunity to play with supercooled soda outside of the bottle.

Music by: TheFatRat ("Xenogenesis”) Licenced by Tasty http://youtube.com/tasty Project Inspired By: Mikey77's Instructable on Ooogoo: http://www.instructables.com/id/How-To-Make-Your-Own-Sugru-Substitute/ Project History & More Info: Casting silicone is very expensive, so over the years I tried to find a cheaper alternative to making LEGO candy molds (https://goo.gl/XcLbep). I started off trying silicone caulk from the hardware store, but globs of it would take weeks and weeks to finally firm up. That wasn't acceptable because I needed something that would harden in 24 hours or less. About 3 years ago I came across an Instructable by Mikey77 showing that mixing corn starch into the silicone caulk could be used to make it firm up in under an hour. I did a number of experiments of my own, and eventually found out that corn starch wasn't actually needed at all, but that all you needed was to add a little food coloring. I still like to use corn starch though because it helps prevent the caulk from sticking to my hands as I work with it. The stuff is really hard to get off if it sticks to skin!

Music By: Scott & Brendo (“Somewhere” - Instrumental) http://bit.ly/ScottBrendoiTunes Project Inspired By: A toy I remember seeing at a craft fair as a kid. I wasn’t willing to pay $10 for a bag of 3, so I went home and played around with different methods until I figured out how to make these with balloons and flour. Project History & More Info: My kids go crazy playing with these little toys because they are soft, squishy, and very colorful. What’s really cool about them is that we can make them together, and they don’t cost very much at all. In-fact, they end up just costing pennies a piece. They make cool gifts for birthday parties, and I personally use them for juggling balls from time to time, because they are perfectly weighted, and have a soft and rubbery grip.

Music By: Music by Jason Shaw (RP-Rhastafarian) http://www.audionautix.com Project Inspired By: Samoan show - Polynesian Cultural Center (PCC) - Laie Hawaii. Project History & More Info: A friction fire made by the "Fire Plow" method is not as easy as it looks. Practicing with the right woods and techniques is invaluable to being prepared for an actual emergency. I used dried wild hibiscus wood, which in my experience is the easiest wood to do this with. I've heard that dried sotol wood is also very easy. The Samoans say that any type of wood can be used to make a friction fire, and it's important that both sticks come from the same piece of wood. I've tried many different woods and been successful with amazing amounts of smoke, but thus far haven't had any success in developing a coal. It's probably my technique, which I hope I can master over time, but I've found very little information on the subject, and nobody who's actually done it with wood other than hibiscus or sotol.

This project should only be attempted with adequate knowledge and training, proper protective safety gear, and in a fire resistant area with adequate ventilation. The sparks flying from the foundry can ignite fires, and the fumes from burning dross can be toxic. Use caution and common sense. Use of this video content is at your own risk. Music by: Scott & Brendo ("Skyward" - Instrumental) http://bit.ly/ScottBrendoiTunes Project inspired by: This foundry is an original design, which comes after months of experimenting, and over 10 different prototypes. The functionality is founded on ideas I collected while searching the internet for foundry designs. Background: For as long as I can remember, I've been intrigued by the idea of melting metal and making things with it. The problem has always been that it was out of reach or required really expensive equipment. In this project I experimented with 10 different prototypes, to develop a reusable backyard foundry that melts aluminum soda cans easily and safely. I tested different refractory recipes, different containers, different setting for blowing air, and different types of makeshift crucibles. I tried various ratios of portland cement, sand, perlite, plaster of paris, water, and even kitty litter. For containers, I experimented with clay pots, plastic buckets, no container, cinderblocks, and a galvanized steel pail. I ended up favoring the galvanized steel pail, and a mix of 50% plaster of paris, and 50% play sand, by volume, which was inspired by a video by NightHawkInLight "How to Make a Soup Can Forge" http://bit.ly/IBSoupCanForge Depending on where you get, or find, your materials the cost can range anywhere from $5-$25 per unit. With the materials I used, I was able to make 2 units for under $40 ($20 each). Even on the high end, this is probably one of the cheapest, reliable, backyard foundries that can be made. I used mine to melt soda cans, and extract the aluminum for future metal casting projects. All the soda cans came from a local recycling depot. I bought back 30 lbs from the depot to avoid having to drink gallons and gallons of soda. :) I stored the ingots in various forms, which you can see in the next video, and tried a cool technique for making a little sword by pouring liquid metal into a bucket of sand. I'm planning to make a project video on how to do that in the near future. Thanks for watching, and please share!! :)

A little Borax detergent booster, yellow and green food coloring, and a 5 oz bottle of some clear non-toxic school glue. Borax can be found as a detergent booster under the name "20 mule team Borax". It's a natural mineral with a chemical formula Na2B4O7 • 10H2O. The IUPAC name for borax is sodium tetraborate decahydrate. Borax also is known as sodium borate, sodium tetraborate or disodium tetraborate. If you don't have access to Borax, I've heard that liquid starch can be used instead. I haven't tried it, but let me know if you do, and how well it works? Just mix 1/2 cup liquid starch (eg. Sta-Flo) with an 8oz bottle of glue (should be the whole bottle).

Slam Rod Fire Starter - Ignition By Air!!
 
05:04
Did you know there's a way to start a fire by squishing air? In this project we're building a tool that does exactly that, and with a little bit of resourcefulness, we can make this for under $1.00. This tool is completely see through, so you can witness the ignition first hand!

Music By: http://www.danosongs.com (Black Box In The Ground) Project Inspired By: wmgurst http://youtu.be/pX9odql1Abc Project History & More Info: A fire piston, or a "slam rod fire starter" as I sometimes call it, is a device used centuries ago to kindle fire. It works because rapid compression heats the air in the chamber to the ignition point of tinders, such as char cloth. The tinder can then be used to ignite kindling, and develop a flame. It's thought that the fire piston may have inspired Rudolf Diesel in his creation of the diesel engine around 1892. I had a fire piston I made out of copper tubing, but I wanted to make one out of clear acrylic so I could actually see the ignition of the tinder. It seemed it mystery how, or when, it actually lit, and I wanted to see. FINDING ACRYLIC: I used google.com to find different plastics companies in my area, and called around until I found one that sold acrylic tubing and rods to the public. I went for a visit, and luckily they had some lengths of scrap tubing they couldn't sell. I asked them if I could use it for a science project, and they gave it to me for free. The tubing I used was 1/2" inside diameter, and the rod was 1/2" outside diameter - clear acrylic. This piston was given to a subscriber, as part of a contest I held in celebration of 10,000 subscribers on my YouTube channel. See more information on the fire piston on Wikipedia; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fire_piston

This is not a "free energy" device, "over unity" device, or a claim to be the solution to the worlds energy crisis. This is a project I did to experiment with the electrolysis of water, and the resulting gasses collected. Music By: Kevin Macleod (Breakdown) http://incompetech.com/ Project Inspired By: "Smack's Booster": http://www.free-energy-info.co.uk/Smack.pdf Project History & More Info: The generator requires electricity to electrolyze H2O (water) into gas. The resulting mixed gas is sometimes referred to as Oxy-Hydrogen gas, which is 2 parts Hydrogen (H2) and 1 part Oxygen (O2). I typically hook this up to my car battery while the vehicle is running, so the alternator takes most of the load. On 12 volts I get about 1.5 liters/minute, but when I want to make the gas faster, I hook 2 car batteries in series for 24 volts, and this exponentially increases the gas production to over 5 liters per minute. Current draw seems to be around 20-50 amps depending on whether you use 12-24 volts. High current draws mean the electrolyte heats up, and if left too long the plastic can warp or melt causing structural failure. Some people ask why the plates aren't all electrically connected. The plates that aren't connected are called "floater" plates, or "neutral" plates. There is too much information to post about them here, so do a google search, or check out websites like http://www.hho4free.com/neutral_plates.htm for an in depth explanation of the theory. I used KOH as my electrolyte because research suggested it was the best. I haven't experimented with other electrolytes, but have heard that salt, sodium hydroxide, vinegar, etc could work, but will dirty and may corrode the plates. Potassium Hydroxide keeps the system clean, however, it is caustic, so be careful if you choose to use it. You can probably get away with about 2-4 teaspoons of KOH per 6 liters of water. This system produces an extremely powerful OxyHydrogen gas. When the gas is used, it simply turns back into water, and that's good for the environment. However I believe it takes more electric energy to produce the gas than is obtained from the gas. This device merely converts the energy from one form to another, with given losses. As long as you have enough electricity, the amount of water already in this system is enough to produce thousands and thousands of liters of fuel. Some people say this is the fuel of the future. Either way, it's a very powerful gas! If you need more information, or want to purchase build plans for this design, you can get them here: http://bit.ly/HHOParts

These improvised caps are loud, and can be dangerous if misused. Safety precautions should be in place to mitigate any chance of personal injury. Be safe and have fun, but always remember that any project you try is at your own risk. See What Else I’m Up To: Instagram: https://goo.gl/C0Q1YU Facebook: http://bit.ly/FBTheKingOfRandom Music By: Music by Scott & Brendo “American Dream” Instrumental iTunes: http://bit.ly/ScottBrendoiTunes YouTube: www.youtube.com/scottandbrendo Project Inspired By: A moment of inspiration I had while working on the Exploding Cap Dart video (https://goo.gl/5pcnCd) Project History & More Info: Do you remember the Exploding Cap Dart project? (https://goo.gl/5pcnCd) While I was working on different prototypes for that exploding blowgun ammo, I got wondering about the cap-gun caps themselves, and how they exploded on impact. I spent a considerable amount of time on the internet researching, and trying to figure out what the composition of cap gun caps were. I was very curious to learn what composition could be stable enough to sit undisturbed, indefinitely, but explode suddenly and powerfully when hit with enough force. Armstrong's Mixture is highly volatile and extremely dangerous compound in large quantities, and has been known to explode just by stirring it too aggressively. However in small batches like cap-gun caps, it's exciting, and relatively harmless. I found a few websites, PDF's and online studies suggesting different ways to make improvised versions of the mixture using safety matches. This method doesn't create a pure composition though, and there really isn't any way to measure exact amounts. But in experimenting, I did figure out an easy way to make it work consistently, every time. At this point I have a fair amount of experience with Armstrong's Mixture, and some things you need to know about it are this; - Treat it like it could explode spontaneously at any moment, and make sure you have safety precautions in place. This way if it does, you'll be prepared for it. - Stick to very small batches, and treat it with caution and respect. Don't use more than 1 match-head. 2 at the most! This makes enough powder for 10 Thunder Caps, which are about 5-10 times more powerful than regular cap-gun caps in-and-of themselves. And while the powder from only 2 matches might not seem like much ... trust me, you DON'T want it going off all at once. - If you mix it up too aggressively, it can go off unexpectedly, and can be extremely loud, leaving your ears ringing. It can also be set off with friction, impact, heat, and electrical sparks. Wear ear-plugs and safety glasses at all times. Saying all that, I've never actually had the composition go off unexpectedly, so long as I was being extremely gentle with it. I usually keep each movement as light as a feather and typically mix it with wooden sticks, razor blades, and anything else that is convenient and expendable, so far with 100% success. It's important to note that I always expect it to go off at any time, and am prepared in case it does. Attempts to get the mixture to go off while stirring aggressively were hit or miss. Most of the time nothing happened. However, every now and again, it would explode when it was least expected. I believe the “Thunder Caps” project to be a safe and enjoyable experience, so long as it's experimented with in very small quantities. However if you try this yourself, remember that any actions and reactions you produce are at your own risk, and you are responsible for the consequences.

Credits; Music By: Jason Shaw (RP-MedTempoRock) http://www.audionautix.com Project Inspired By: fencekid http://youtu.be/p7dvd959wfg My "Solar Scorcher" project was originally inspired by Dan Rojas of GreenPowerScience: http://youtu.be/JkgFk15uBxw (Fresnel Lens Giant "Big Daddy") Project History & More Info: These TV's are old, extremely heavy, and are breaking down on people everywhere. They usually cost more to fix than they could be sold for, so people are begging you to come take them away for free! I usually find mine on the classified ads under the "free" section, but they are also common on the sides of streets and alleyways where people have left them for trash. PLEASE NOTE: These lenses are found in "rear-projection" televisions and not all are the same. Some are discolored, and some concentrate to a beam rather than a point. The particular screen I found was a crystal clear acrylic lens that focused to a point. It may have been luck that I found it on my first try, because 3 TV's after that all had lesser grade lenses, but still produced enough heat to melt zinc. Just FYI! You can also see http://youtu.be/xExXjXm0YV0 for examples of these different lenses. It was brought to my attention that Kipkay did a project like this a couple of years ago that he called the "Solar Death Ray". It's probably where FenceKid got the idea, which in turn, inspired me.

Your Mass is NOT From the Higgs Boson
 
06:50
The Higgs Boson is awesome but it's NOT responsible for most of your mass! Thanks to audible.com for supporting this episode: http://bit.ly/ZJ5Q6z The Higgs mechanism is meant to account for the mass of everything, right? Well no, only the fundamental particles, which means that electrons derive their mass entirely from the Higgs interaction but protons and neutrons, made of quarks, do not. In fact the quark masses are so small that they only make up about 1% of the mass of the proton (and a similar fraction of the neutron). The rest of the mass comes from the energy in the gluon field. Gluons are massless, but there is so much energy in the field that by E=mc^2 there is a significant amount of mass there. This is where most of your mass comes from and the mass of virtually everything around you. Thanks to Professor Derek Leinweber for his great images, animations and explanations.

This project should only be attempted with adequate knowledge and training, proper protective safety gear, and in a fire resistant area with adequate ventilation. The heat from the foundry can easily burn, and inhaling excessive amounts of zinc fumes can cause metal fume fever. Use caution and common sense. Use of this video content is at your own risk. Music By: TheFatRat - Licensed by Tasty Song Title: Xenogenesis Music Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_nabH... Label Channel: http://youtube.com/tasty" Project Inspired By: An indirect suggestion my dad made for me to try and make something practical out of brass. He didn't expect I'd end up making these! Project History & More Info: The weather has cooled off quite a bit, which has turned my interest back to keeping warm by casting metal. This time round I wanted to play with higher temperature metals, like brass. So I made a trip to a local shooting range, and salvaged a whole bucket-load of spent brass casings. Quite a few people have asked whether my backyard foundry can melt brass, and I was curious myself, so I threw a few handfuls of casings into a crucible and fired them up. I tried using lump charcoal because it burns hotter and faster than briquettes, and a clay crucible purchased from the internet because it withstands heat better, and lasts longer than steel. I was impressed that the brass melted down without hesitation, and I was able to easily cast mini brass muffins the same day. A couple things worth mentioning are that the melting point of brass is around the boiling point of zinc. I noticed this in real-life when the metal started bubbling, and shooting out white flames. I wasn't sure what it was until I looked it up, but it was most likely zinc oxide fumes being released. Zinc Oxide can be toxic in large quantities, and although it's never happened to me, claims are that it can cause metal fume fever, which gives flu like symptoms. You should also know that brass is over 3 times heavier than aluminum, so expect the crucible to have a lot more weight to it, making it harder to handle. My dad was visiting at the time and confirmed my thoughts about it by suggesting I try making something more practical and useful. So I thought it would be fun to make some "Brass Knuckle" paperweights. I looked online at different varieties of brass knuckles, then drew my own version in photoshop, and used the "Styro-Slicer" and the lost-foam casting technique to make a rough pair of knuckles. I cast another pair the same way, and spent another 8 hours sanding and buffing them up to a mirror finish, then wondered how I could take them to the next level. Spikes seemed like a cool idea, inspired by a picture I saw on a google image search, so I stopped at an alternative clothing store and picked up a spiked choker collar, and repurposed the spikes for my piece of metal art. These are not designed or intended to be used as weapons. Possession of Brass Knuckles is illegal in most countries, (but not where I live), however I created these simply for artistic expression, and use them mainly as workshop décor. (paperweights).

Music By: Music by Jason Shaw (TU-ForeverBelieve) http://www.audionautix.com Project Inspired By: This was an original idea. I had been playing around with making candles with vegetable oil and was about to make a video on some ways to do that. One night an idea popped into my head about melted butter and I wondered if that would work. Project History & More Info: To make butter burn, we actually need to vaporize it first! A bit of rolled up toilet paper acts as a wick, and when pushed down into the center of a block of butter and ignited, we've may have created the worlds simplest candle. The butter below the wick begins to melt and soak up into the paper. The heat aids the liquid butter to be released as a vapor, and it's the vapor that's flammable. I used an 8oz block of butter and cut it in half. Each half burns for about 4 hours each, however, during the last 2 hours it seems most of the butter liquifies and your wick may need some support. I used a paperclip to give some stability. Another idea would be to cut the butter into 8 sections of 1oz each and make 8 candles! Each ounce should burn for about 1 hour.

The Truth About Veritasium
 
11:41
The truth, with photons. I hope I've articulated everything clearly in this video. If not, I'll clarify in comments. Thanks to everyone who appears in this video and thanks to everyone who watches this video! Veritasium is of course a combination of the latin 'veritas' meaning truth, and the common element ending 'ium'. I guess this is my version of the 'draw my life' craze that rolled through YouTube many years ago. Except I wanted to tell my story with the actual moments, the photons, the stored magnetic states. There's something about that which is so important to me (because I think the alternative involves fooling yourself) which is why I'm so fascinated by film and video. One of my inspirations for the name Veritasium came from the end of the poem Ode on a Grecian Urn by John Keats, in which he writes: "Beauty is truth, truth beauty,—that is all Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know."

Music By: TheFatRat - Licensed by Tasty Song Title: Xenogenesis Music Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_nabH... Label Channel: http://youtube.com/tasty” Project Inspired By: Wire foam cutting machines for sale on the internet, but too pricy to actually consider paying for. Project History & More Info: This is the final video on the Styro-Slicer itself. A lot of people have been asking why I made 2 Quick Clips, and 2 Projects for this one system. And I'm happy to explain. The first Quick Clip was to introduce the styro-slicer, and show what it could do. It introduced the concept that it exists, that it could make styrofoam swords, guns, and airplanes, and that it compacts back together for storage. The project video that followed (https://goo.gl/AO7ZaJ) was a fully produced tutorial of how to use it. It showed all of it's different features and operation, and took over 5 minutes to demonstrate. So that required a video of its own. The 2nd Quick Clip was to preview the styro-slicer tutorial, and I put enough information in there that savvy viewers could figure out how to build it before the tutorial. And apparently some people did. This video is the final installment, showing step by step how to make the styro-slicer. Also with this tutorial being 3-4 times longer than regular videos, it takes 3-4 times longer to produce, and since I try to put out a video posted randomly, the Quick Clips gave me a chance to show the project, and just enough breathing room to get the tutorial produced and released. This video is all about making the Styro-Slicer, but doesn't get into great detail about how to use it. Although the build is fairly simple, there is a sizable materials list and the video can seem quite technical. But I promise that if you take it one step at a time, you'll get it finished. I made 3 previous prototypes of this model. Each one giving me new experience and insight into what I wanted the finished product to be able to do. The ultimate success came when the design for compact storage actually worked out, and the assembly could compact together for quick storage. I am still very excited and proud about that feature :) I took a lot of inspiration from different pictures on Google image searches, of professional foam cutting machines. I was inspired by different features, like cutting at angles, and adjusting the temperatures, and wanted to replicate those features. My first prototype took just over 15 minutes to put together, and used a scrap 2"x4" piece of wood, a piece of picture hanging wire, and was powered by a transformer I ripped out of an old stereo. It worked great, but it was also really crude and I didn't have time to make a nice version for my metal casting videos, so I never did mention it until recently. But I always had intentions to fully develop it.

Homemade Microwave Popcorn - From Scratch
 
01:50
You can make bags of microwave popcorn at home. They're delicious and ready to serve in just a couple of minutes. Not to mention they're cheaper than the name brands, and free from any nasty chemicals. Some quick links to a few of the materials I used: [✓] Popcorn kernels: http://amzn.to/2cRthwR [✓] Brown paper bags: http://amzn.to/2cRzGnJ [✓] Salt: http://amzn.to/2cmuDNe Want more Quick and Simple Microwave Hacks?

Hot oil or other ingredients may also cause damage to exposed skin or mouth on contact. Let the contents of the bag cool before touching and eating, or use appropriate protective gear. Have fun, but use caution and common sense, and always remember that any experiment you try, is at your own risk. Music By: Jens Kiilstofte - “Morning Cruise” https://machinimasound.com/music/morning-cruise Project Inspired By: My dad. He's a huge fan of popcorn and I wanted a quick and easy way to make some when he came to visit. I took more inspiration from microwave popcorn, and the internet. I ripped bags of microwave popcorn apart to figure out how they worked, researched the internet for DIY ideas, and experimented on my own with 20-30 batches to get the results you see here. Project History & More Info: I wondered if there was a way to make a single bag of popcorn at home, that would be ready to eat right away. No buttering, no salting .. just ready to eat as soon as it was popped. Of course I was inspired by microwave popcorn, because it can already do that. But some research suggests there may be harmful chemicals in the heat-resistant lining that are released when the kernels are cooked. I experimented by popping kernels in butter, but most of the time the butter burned, and either melted the plastic containers I was using, or scorched them. I experimented with coconut oil, and that worked really really well, but there wasn't much flavor and I wanted the recipe to use very common ingredients, so olive oil ended up being my preference. For containers, I experimented with plastic, glass, and even slurpee and coffee cups, but they all either warped, stained, or melted at the seams and fell apart once in a while. Not very reliable. After searching around the internet, I realized this actually isn't a very new idea, and people have been making microwave popcorn in brown paper bags for years. So I tried the brown paper bag method, and while it was a bit messy, it worked perfectly every time. I experimented with different recipes and amounts trying to get a single bag to pop and be ready to eat straight out of the microwave. This is the recipe I use now, after weeks of testing; 1/3 Cup Popcorn 1 Tsp Olive Oil ½ Tsp Salt I found that if the kernels were coated in the oil first, they would pop faster, and be more complete. I also found that throwing all the ingredients in at the same time will still season everything and yield a great taste. You could shake the bag to make the contents more uniform, but it still works either way! :) Just for fun, my wife suggested I try adding some sugar to see if it would make instant kettle corn .. and it did! So: (optional) – Add 1 TBSP Sugar to make Kettle Korn Kettle Korn is a sweet and salty version of popcorn for people who like it like that. My personal preference however, is salty. So I usually leave the sugar out. I included the option in this video because many Americans are fans of the Kettle Korn taste. Enjoy! :)

But curiously enough, stories from ancient Egypt, Persia, the Middle East, Central Asia, India and China also featured Amazon-like warrior women. And Amazons were described in ancient historical accounts, not just myths. Who were the real women warriors known as Amazons? Adrienne Mayor investigates.

Music By: Scott & Brendo “Somewhere” http://bit.ly/ScottBrendoiTunes Project Inspired By: A picture I came across on a Google image search for Life Hacks: http://bit.ly/IBAppleLifeHack Project History & More Info: I was surfing the internet checking out pictures of so-called Life Hacks, and I say so-called because most of them are either over used, or useless. But I stumbled across an idea that really intrigued me (http://bit.ly/IBAppleLifeHack). There wasn't any information at all, and I couldn't find the idea duplicated anywhere else. Just this one picture of an apple cut like a tic-tac-toe grid rather than cut into quarters. And another picture showing the apple wrapped with a rubber band to hold it together. Luckily, my wife always has apples on hand, so I got experimenting. Firstly, I tried cutting the apple as seen in the picture. My overall impression was that the pieces didn't look the way I was used to seeing apple slices, but I was surprised by how much faster it was to cut them this way, and really happy to see there wasn't a pile of apple core pieces that had to be cleaned up afterward. Just one bit of apple core that was easily discarded, or composted. Next I tried experimenting with the rubber band around the apple. The idea is that by keeping the pieces held together with an elastic, the apple slices won't turn brown. I tested this idea on numerous apples and found that given enough time, they all eventually go brown, but keeping the pieces together keeps them in pretty good condition for up to around 3 hours, which could be long enough to get them to work or school just in time for snacks or lunch. In any case, keeping the slices together was far more effective then putting them in a container, or in a ziplock baggie. I have also experimented with using lemon juice on apple slices. The idea is that the citric acid in the lemon juice prevents the fruit from oxidizing. That is true! In my experiments I had apple slices last up to 8.5 hours without turning brown at all. They may have gone even longer than that, but I ate them. While I was starting to film this video, my wife gave me a really great suggestion. She said, why not turn the apples upside down when you cut them? This way they are a lot more stable because they have a bigger base to work from. Genius! If you're looking for more cool tricks you can do with apples, check out my video on how to make an "Edible Apple Swan" http://bit.ly/MakeAppleSwan Apple art is fun, easy, and available, so give it a try and see how yours turns out :) For one final experiment, I set up a time trial to see how the traditional method of cutting apples would compare to this new method of slicing apples. I found that the traditional (cutting into quarters, then cutting out the cores) method took 49 seconds to make 8 slices, while the new Apple Hack method took only 10 seconds for the same results! That's 5 times faster! So my final conclusion is that this Apple Hack is indeed 5 x faster, easier, more convenient, and saves a baggie if you use an elastic instead. In general, it just makes a lot more sense. It's one of those concepts that jumps out and makes you say, why haven't we always been doing this??! Watch for the full video, to see more experiments and explanations, and in the mean time start cutting your apples upside down! :)

Urine Ignition!
 
03:09
Light a survival fire with your pee. If you're into survival skills and fire-making techniques, this is a great trick to know if urine trouble.

Music By: Kevin Macleod (Stormfront, Stomp Dance) http://incompetech.com/ Project Inspired By: Dual Survival - Urine Ignition http://youtu.be/SwW5hwX47MY Project History & More Info: This is a great trick to know if urine trouble. If clear liquids can be conformed to the shape of a sphere, sunlight can be refracted through the fluid and the energy can be focused to a point. Clear water is one of the best choices because it doesn't absorb any of the suns energy, so more heat is transferred to the tinder. Colored liquids, or liquids in colored bottles can still work, but energy is lost, and that could be the difference between getting tinder ignition or not. After making fires with various water bottles, and posting my first video on it in 2010, someone commented and said they saw a guy on Dual Survival do it with his urine. That sounded pretty amazing to me, so I looked up the link on YouTube and saw the clip. It seemed like he had quite a bit of trouble actually getting his fire going, and I thought that if I were ever in a survival situation like that, the last thing I would want to be doing is trying for hours how to figure out how it works. It's better to be prepared beforehand. This video comes after many experiments of playing with various techniques. I found that using plastic wrap and urine made a combination that gave great success, and within a minute or two I could have a flame! When done correctly, it works just the same as a magnifying glass. Practicing with the amount of pressure is key, because too little and you won't have a good lens. Too much, and the plastic bursts and you're soaking wet. FAQ's: Q: Why did I wrap an apple in plastic wrap? A: Of course the video is fictional, however the survival techniques portrayed are real. I wrapped my apple with plastic wrap because I've seen it done before at hotels, and I wanted to give an example of how random resources can be used as tools. If you don't wrap your apples in plastic wrap, perhaps you wrap your sandwich, or various other food items? The plastic baggie holding the celery can also be used in a very similar manner. Q: Why did I use a page from the map for tinder instead of grass or leaves? A: This liquid lens technique will light any tinder that could be lit with a magnifying glass, since that's what it is in essence. I used a piece of paper as an example because most people have access to that as a material they could practice with. I chose paper because it's easily duplicatable by anyone wanting to try. Q: Why does the urine change color just before I light the tinder? Did I cheat? A: The urine changes color mid video, and that's because when I went to re-set my camera for a different angled shot, I dropped the first sack of urine. Awkward to hold the sack, and adjust the camera on rocky terrain at the same time. I lost my urine and had to wait for another round .. which, by that point was more hydrated because of all the water I'd drank earlier, and therefore more clear in color. In either case, I have the same success igniting tinder with either liquid lens so the difference made by the color is negligible.

Licensed under Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/b...) Project Inspired By: This was an original idea (original to me anyway) Project History & More Info: 2 years ago, one of my brothers gave me a set of Star Wars ice cube trays. But rather than using them for ice cubes, I wanted to try something different. I typically make my own gummy recipe and make LEGO gummies with a custom mold I made a few years ago, but this time I got a bag full of gummy bears to make it even easier. I have always melted them on the stove, on low heat, but that was taking upwards of 10 minutes. So I randomly tried putting a batch in the microwave for a few seconds, and was amazed by the result. Just a few seconds in the microwave is all it takes to make a cup full of molten gummy syrup. I don't go longer than 15 seconds at a time because if you go too long, the syrup will start boiling and bubbling up out of the container, making a big sticky mess in the microwave. In some cases, 15 seconds is all it takes. But if that's not long enough to melt everything, try another 10-15 seconds. I recommend using a glass container for melting the gummies. Plastics could melt or warp. This idea could be adapted to make custom gummies of any shape and size. Enjoy! *Special thanks to Audible.com for sponsoring another one of my videos!

In 1958, Ohio high schooler Robert Heft submitted a class project that would change our country forever. Heft's history teacher gave his class an open-ended assignment: make a project illustrating your interest in American history. So Heft redesigned the 48-star American flag to include two additional stars for Hawaii and Alaska. Though his teacher was not impressed, President Dwight D. Eisenhower ultimately took an interest … The rest, as they say, is history.
