I’m freaking out
this kid does a 1080 like he’s playing a fucking video game and goes wild
fucking watch this kid skateboard
Tony Hawk is impressed so I’m impressed
ok ok i know i reblogged this already but i wanted to just say that that moment after he finished the jump where he just steps off his skateboard into the air and slides on his knees down the halfpipe is easily the coolest part of this whole video to me and im angry that ill never be able to do anything with as much effortless grace as he did that
this is the third time i’ve reblogged this but but i wanted to say that’s so true
Project HARP (High Altitude Research Project) was a joint initiative between the United States and Canada to research the use of ballistics to deliver objects into the upper atmosphere and beyond.
In lay terms, the project was established to create a cartoonishly large gun to shoot things into space. The sole fruit of this partnership, a massive toppled gun barrel, still remains on the Barbados test site.
Designed by mad ballistic engineer Gerald Bull, the gun itself was originally built from a 50 caliber naval cannon, like what might be seen on a battleship, and was later doubled to 100 caliber, making the gun too big for effective military application, but seemingly perfect for satellite delivery. Not-designed for delivering human subjects, the cannon fired smaller projectiles in a sabot that would protect the payload during the firing and would fall away as the satellite rose. At its apex, the gun was able to fire an object a staggering 112 miles into the sky, setting the 1963 world record for gun-launched altitude at 93 KM.
As the project continued, installing similar guns in further locations, the Barbados gun was abandoned in the late 1960s and left to rust on its original launch site. Looking more like a painted sewer pipe than a Godzilla-size gun barrel, the original Project HARP space gun can still be reached along the Barbados coast.

Why in the world won’t these streams of liquid mix even though they are colliding? They are the same fluid of silicone oil, yet they just bounce off of each other.
This is because there is a thin film of air surrounding the jets of liquid, and the motion of the jets maintains the air-film barrier indefinitely.
