ITT: Webm non-porn.
Dumping alot, please bump!
did you know there are now over 150 cameras on the launchpad because of the columbia disaster?
What a fucking moron, surely he can figure out what is happening and brace himself for impact? Instead of standing there with his thumb up his ass helplessly pressing buttons like that will magically fix it?
The guide on the counterweight broke and it was flying upwards into the roof.
>That is Ferrocerium and steel, not flint.
I'm aware of that. I named the WebM from the source material I used to create it, and the Slo-Mo Guys video from which I made that WebM is called "Flint and Steel".
>Dudebros that think snowboarding is cooler than skiing
As a concierge who works in a high rise building with 10+ lifts I'll fill you in on a few things;
Lifts will NEVER drop, they are over engineered to the point that the cable short of someone taking a grinder or welder to it, will never snap. If the brake mechanism fails, due to the counter-weight, the lift will always go UP instead of down.
Things like this will happen in mere seconds, you don't have time to brace, this guy basically was fucked from stepping in that lift.
In any modern country, or building, the chances of this happening with modern systems is less then 1%.. Third world cheap lifts? I'd never get in them.
I would probably grab the handrails, and I would put my head forward so that when I hit the roof of the elevator, I do so with my back. Isn't that just the instinctive thing to do?
>Things like this will happen in mere seconds, you don't have time to brace
Hahahahahahahahahahaha. That guy had a full FORTY seconds to brace himself for an impact, how much of an idiot are you?
well it was in serbia.
and you cunt I was pointing out where it happened, not whose fault it was. you automatically think I fucking hate everyone or that I'm better than whatever shit hole country you came from. but this is how I think. I live in a shitty county full of shitty people, just like the rest of you. so fuck off.
Looking at this makes me wonder what people will think of us in 300 years. Neanderthals flinging ourselves into orbit by creating huge explosions, using up an ever decreasing resource...
Kind of fun knowing we'll be primitive and savage to our future descendents.
The best thing you can do in that situation is try and get to sleep. The more relaxed you are the less likely you are to be injured.
the flame resisting materiel on the space shuttle is actually a very thin fabric and ceramic tiles. look at some close up shots of the shuttle its actually pretty fucking awesome.
who can say
small camera on its beek I guess
it seems to be fine
just watch it
>doesn't cover genitals
Blue guy can do whatever he want, so he decides to run around with his underwhelming cock showing to the world and only puts on a speedo for publicity shots.
god bless america, we are truly awesome.
brb we nuke a massive city filled with civilians
brb win war
brb we don't give a fuck
this happened in my country : Zambia,
It was an Australian tourist. she survived but she got really fucked up.
The river is rough as fuck (white water rapids, whirlpools, crocodiles and shit) and her bungee cord actually got snagged on a rock underwater and she had to swim under the surface to pry it free before she could try and swim to shore. shes fucking lucky to be alive.
I did white water rafting in the same river and if you're not doing it properly you'll drown for sure, that river is the biggest killer in Livingstone.
>mfw he fries everyone who laughs at his small dick
No, its massive I swear!
Yes. The bird actually went fishing, using bait.
>the chances of this happening with modern systems is less then 1%
For fuck sake Anon, are you even into probabilities? Don't throw just numbers around. 1% of what ? Every elevator ride or what? That would be fucking huge.
even 0.01 or 0.001. Fuck how many elevators are active right now at this moment?
GIVE ME FUCKING STATISTIC ABOUT THIS! INCIDENCE LIKE THIS IN METERS OF ELEVATOR RIDES BY 100000 OR SOMETHING I NEED TO KNOW
I got a question for ya'. Why are there things shooting sparks out not connected to the rocket launcher? What are their purpose? It couldn't be just a visual aid for how much thrust the rockets are putting out, that's too simple.
Why is she wearing a brace with a collar around her neck?
Vegetable? Omg, you're so stupid, I'm embarrassed on your behalf.
Those sparks are called our hydrogen burn-off igniters and they are intended to burn free hydrogen. When we start up the engines, there is a little bit of hydrogen that comes out that hasn't ignited yet when combined with the oxygen in the system. Also, if we do have an on-pad engine shutdown after we've started the engines and have to turn them off for some reason, we shut down fuel rich as well meaning that the last bit of fuel that comes out of the engines will be hydrogen. So, those sparklers, that we like to call them, will burn off free hydrogen in the atmosphere rather than let it ignite on its own as it travels up the side of the ship. That's a safety consideration. It burns hydrogen before it causes us any trouble.
