Splitting Pellets with a Knife in Slow Motion - The Slow Mo Guys

  • When you throw a lump of metal at a very sharp piece of metal, the sharp piece of metal wins. You can't see it with your eyeball, but thankfully Gav and Dan are here.

    How frustrating would that channel be if you just did all those videos, but without the slow motion footage.
    Like, shoot in slow motion and do all the crazy/stupid stuff and then it's just the camera shooting you reacting to the footage, without the actual footage.
    And then the outro.

    Convex not concave for anyone who actually cares. Also, when he says rust he is referring to oxidization. Rust is a catchall term for when any substance reacts with exygen, I.e. silver tarnish, or when copper turns green like the Statue of Liberty(fun fact: "Lady" Liberty is probably a representation of an ancient MALE God) and everyone's favorite rust; ferrous oxide, or iron oxide. Fe2O3 or iron oxide which most people think of when they hear the word "rust."
    "The fruit is rusting on the vine," which is lyrics from a song, is talking about this very process albeit incorrectly. When fruit such as apples are cut they begin to oxidize. Apples turn brown. This is called rust.

    I can't believe nobody noticed what happened at 4:20. No, not that 4:20🌲💨. I'm talking about the triboluminescence.
    I am assuming he was slightly to the right of center which caused the right side fragment to press against the blade with more force which created the triboluminescent display. That would also explain why the right side fragment missed the balloon.
