This was by far the biggest project this channel has ever taken on. It was almost a month of planning, building, filming and editing!!! The end result was a MASSIVE LIQUID SAND POOL! This particular science phenomenon takes advantage of what is called a “fluidized bed”. These are mostly used in industrial applications the process combines a pressurized fluid (a liquid or a gas) and forces into a solid like sand or dust. This combination makes these solid particles act like a fluid. The feeling of falling back into dry sand that acts like a liquid is very strange and in some ways very relaxing. The sensation is somewhat like what you think floating in Jello would feel like, however, because it’s totally dry you feel super comfortable! This particular video was made so much more fun because of the SMOSH squad, Jordan of “Captain Sparklez” and the Pocket.Watch team (of which has the best clip in the video face planting into the sand pool). The Pocket Watch team, in particular, made this possible with helping me fund the entire project, so big thank you and make sure to take a look at their channel for some footage not seen in this video! Also, big shout out to Mark Rober for coming up with this original liquid sand concept.

Top 10 Facts On Red Heads You Never Knew
 
04:44
SUBSCRIBE!: http://bit.ly/1G97GmA SHARE THIS VIDEO: https://youtu.be/ANyz1XvJeuA Red heads are SUPER rare and really fascinating so here are the top 12 facts about redheads!!! 1. Red hair is caused by a series of mutations in the MC1R (melanocortin 1 receptor), a gene located on chromosome 16. Because it’s a recessive trait, it must be inherited from BOTH parents for hair to be red… thanks mom and dad. Because of this genetic phenomenon far more people carry the mutation than people who actually have red hair. In Scotland, approximately 13% of the population are red heads, although up to 40% carry at least on mutation. 2. The 45th parallel is a natural boundary for red hair. Under the 45th parallel the UV rays become so strong that its is no longer and advantage to have very fair skin. In the northern latitudes where sunlight is sparse lighter skin has an advantage as lighter skin improves the ability to absorb light and produce Vitamin D. Which also means redheads are more susceptible to sunburn 3. The frequency of red hair is highest in Ireland (10-30%), Scotland (10-25%), followed by Wales (10 to 15%). The distribution matches very well to ancient Celtic and Germanic civilizations. 4. although red hair is so awesome, red heads have less hair on their heads! In terms of totally number of hair strands red heads have 90,000 strands where as blonde 110,000 and brunettes with 140,000. While they may have less hairs, the hair strand is much thicker leading to an appearance of thinker fuller hair. This apparently makes it easier to style…so having red hair saves time on “getting ready time” 5. Red heads don’t go grey! The red hair pigment doesn’t actually turn grey but rather fades with age from faded copper, to rosy-blonde, to then silvery white. 6. Red hair and blue eyes are the most rare humans on the face of the planet! Since both red hair and blue eyes are a recessive trait only 1% of the worlds population has this combination. 100 times more rare than finding a four leaf clover on the first try! 7. Red hair is super rare! Less than 2% of the worlds population has red hair. This is approximately 140 million people. 8. They are sweet like honey… sorta. Several studies have shown bees are more attracted to red heads. 9. Red heads take pain differently. According to the outcomes research institute of the university if Louisville red heads are more sensitive to thermal pain, but less sensitive to electrical pain. They also require 20% more anesthesia to be sedated! Tough cookies 10. In greek mythology, all red heads turn into vampires when they die. Bonus: because red is such a strong pigment, red hair is much harder to dye. Bonus: Red heads are more likely to be left handed. Recessive traits often happen in pairs so people who have the gene for red hair also have the gene for left handed-ness Follow Nickipedia Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/nickuhas Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/nickuhas Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/uhasbrand Production Team: Writer/Producer: Nick Uhas Editor: Aaron Shafer Music Composer Intro "Jingle": Aaron Shafer DP: Sam Mosco Sound: Matt Vieira Sources: http://www.instructables.com/id/4-leaf-Clovers%3A-A-Finder-s-Guide/ http://indiebookweek.com/2013/03/21/just-who-are-these-redheads-anyway/ http://boredomtherapy.com/facts-about-redheads/ http://www.cosmopolitan.co.uk/beauty-hair/hair/a32357/redhead-facts/ http://www.eupedia.com/genetics/origins_of_red_hair.shtml http://www.livescience.com/39095-redhead-health-risks.html http://www.everydayhealth.com/skin-and-beauty-pictures/6-fiery-facts-about-redheads.aspx#03 http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/emmakelly/redhead-facts_b_4781153.html

Turning Deep Fryer Grease Into Soap!?!? Ft SMOSH Squad
 
10:27
SUBSCRIBE!: http://bit.ly/1G97GmA SHARE THIS VIDEO: https://youtu.be/3BeIjxEYV-g The SMOSH squad’s reactions were awesome! I filmed that tail end while shooting new SMOSH LAB videos! Thanks again Shayne, Olivia, Courtney, and Noah for participating in my experiment! After our last EPIC fail attempt to make soap from a deep fryer, this time I finally got it right! The key was adding a stabilizer (coconut oil) to our deep fried soy bean oil. The grease collection place I got this oil was pretty awesome. It had two 2000 gallon vats of grease being collected to make bio diesel fuel. The actual Asian restaurant this grease was pulled from is being kept confidential because I’m basically breaking all sorts of contracts by using this grease to make soap… but, you know science so it’s cool. Did you guys think this was even possible? I mean, we made real soap from grease that made egg rolls and shrimp tempura! Let me know in the comment section below!

HUGE Foam EXPLOSION!!! Dangerously Large
 
02:54
SUBSCRIBE!: http://bit.ly/1G97GmA SHARE THIS VIDEO: https://youtu.be/pbL27vGZijw This experiment scared the SH@T out of me!!! The Today Show asked me to come back on TV to perform more science experiments, but they said they wanted TO GO BIG!!! So I thought to myself about how I could amp things up. It dawned on me that the one limiting factor for the “elephant toothpaste” or “Foam Fountain of Science” experiment was getting the reactive ingredients to combine on a larger scale quick enough, but also in a fashion that wouldn’t blow up in my face. The solution? Shot gunning the chemical reactants from a collapsible 16.9 Fl OZ water bottle into a 3-gallon refillable drinking water container. The result was astounding! The bottle created so much pressure you can actually see it jump 4 inches off the bucket it was standing on! The actual foam fountain went about 30+ feet (about 9.1 meters) in the air. After trying this out, I’m 100% sure this experiment is TOO BIG for the Today Show. There would be no way to contain the hydrogen peroxide-potassium iodide mixture. Even with a slight wind the foam would fall all over the crowd in the plaza. Looks like this experiment will live in one place… The NICKIPEDIA channel : ) Follow Nickipedia Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/nickuhas Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/nickuhas Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/uhasbrand Nickipedia Website: http://www.nickipedia.com Production Team: Writer/Producer: Nick Uhas Editor: Griffin Louis DP: Sam Mosco Sources: http://www.using-hydrogen-peroxide.com/elephant-toothpaste.html https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydrogen_peroxide http://www.wikihow.com/Make-Elephant-Toothpaste

I Found A Raw DIAMOND: Mining For Diamonds In Arkansas

I went to Crater Of Diamond State Park in Murfreesboro, Arkansas and picked a .44 karat diamond right out of the dirt!! At first I thought it was snot, and then a piece of glass, so I had to get it checked out to make sure it was legit. The park as a gem specialist on sight, and sure enough it was a white diamond! The park itself is incredibly interesting. Crater of Diamonds state park is a 371/2 acre plowed field positioned on an eroded 95 million year old volcano, which is also the world’s eight largest diamond-bearing volcanic crater. The park is located in Murfreesboro, Arkansas (population 1,631) and is the only public accessible diamond site in the world. Admission is $10, and you can keep what you find regardless of how much its worth! Gem hunting and gold mining has turned into my new favorite hobby and I go out panning/sluicing for gold every week. I love it so much I started a new youtube channel all about finding gold and other Gems.

27 Historical LIES

SUBSCRIBE!: http://bit.ly/1G97GmA SHARE THIS VIDEO: https://youtu.be/_5aW8aFBecY Are you a good liar. Are your pants eternally on fire? Are you perfect for Big Brother? Now, fables and fish stories are fine and good for play, but what happens when these exaggerations wind up got for so long they end up in school books? So to autocorrect history I’m going to share with you the TOP 27 Historical Lies! “America became independent on July 4, 1776” - The Declaration of Independence might’ve been signed on July 4, 1776, The Revolutionary would continue for seven more years before King George III and the former colonies agreed upon terms on September 3, 1783. Walt Disney Was Frozen After His Death - Walt Disney has passed on and you can visit him and many other celebrity graves over at Forest Lawn Memorial park in Glendale, California. Pocahontas fell in love with John Smith and saved the settlers Vincent Van Gogh cut off his ear in a fit of jealous rage Jesus was born on December 25 Lincoln was anti slavery. His own words on why he didn’t outlaw it by executive order: “I would do it if I were not afraid that half the officers would fling down their arms and three more states would rise." Captain Cook Discovered Australia Edison invented the lightbulb. The electric arc light was invented by Sir Humphry Davy. Edison’s company just perfected the filament. There were 13 original US colonies - Only 12 colonies rebelled in 1775. Delaware existed as part of the Pennsylvania colony until winning its own independence on June 15th, 1776. Columbus Discovered the Earth is Round - A guy named Eratosthenes figured out that whole spherical earth deal back in 240BC! he also invented the leap day Thanksgiving. - the concept of the the European pilgrims and the new England Indians sharing a meal in harmony was totally made up about 120 years ago. Einstein Was not very good at Math - In reality, Einstein was incredible gifted at math. The myth is due to one of his grade schools inverting their grade system for a few years. He was doing differential calculus by age 15…yea… genius status George Washington was America’s first President - Technically, he was fifteenth Peyton Randolph was appointed by the continental congress as the first President, and never lived long enough to see an independent United States of America. George Washington is the first president under the constitution we have today. Washington and the Cherry Tree Newton’s apple - Newton wasn’t hit by an apple. The Pyramids Were Built By Slaves - Julius Caesar Was Born By Caesarian Section - John K Kennedy Told the German People He Was a Jelly Donut- Benjamin Franklin, the Kite and the Thunderstorm Witches were burned at the stake during the Salem Witch Trials - witch suspects were actually hung instead. The Confederate Flag From History Is not the one you know today. The original confederate flag looks pretty close to the one we have today, the one you think of as the confederate flag was actually a proposed version of the virgina army flag Vikings didn’t wear horned helmets. - Apparently, an embellishment of prussian and nordic romanticism Marie Antoinette never said “Let them eat cake.” – Napoleon was not tiny - He was 5 foot 6, which was average for a man of his era Magellan circumnavigated the world. Nope. Dude only made it halfway before getting taken out in the philippines by natives. There were only 300 warriors fighting for the Spartans Ancient greek was a marble wonderland Follow Nickipedia Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/nickuhas Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/nickuhas Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/uhasbrand Production Team: Producer: Nick Uhas Writer: Sean Stanley Editor: Griffin Louis DP: Sam Mosco Sources: http://www.rantlifestyle.com/2014/05/26/15-lies-your-history-teacher-told-you/ http://listverse.com/2013/01/20/10-lies-taught-to-us-in-school/ http://www.brainjet.com/random/13129/13-famous-paintings-you-should-really-know-by-name-test-yourself/?#page=1 http://www.huffingtonpost.com/richard-greener/the-true-story-of-thanksg_b_788436.html http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/582763/posts

Smashed Fingernail Blood Draining: DIY Surgery
 
04:44
SUBSCRIBE!: http://bit.ly/1G97GmA SHARE THIS VIDEO: https://youtu.be/XUAjQqAqooE I was out mining for gold and had to pull a boulder from the hole I was digging in. The way the rock looked, I assumed it was rounded in nature. Turns out it was more like an egg shape so when I pulled it out it became much heavier than I anticipated. The rock fell along with my hand and it smashed my fingernail right on my pickaxe!!! The result was blood pooling under my fingernail in what is called a subungual hematoma. These things hurt SO SO BAD!!!! Legit kept me up all night, could not sleep more than a few minutes. The pain led me to do something I’ve never done before… DIY surgery! I sterilized and heated up a paper clip and burned right through my nail to relieve the pressure of the blood below. The result was INSTANT relief. It took a few weeks for the nail to fall off and it never got infected. I did however wash it and soak it twice a day in soapy water. I hope this video helps people out there who have blood under the nail and need to know how to relieve the pressure!

World Record Soda Mentos Geyser

SUBSCRIBE!: http://bit.ly/1G97GmA SHARE THIS VIDEO: https://youtu.be/82BiZ1NFYhM We BROKE the WORLD RECORD for the Largest Soda Mentos Geyser!!!!! We could not have done this without the help of the LACI (Los Angeles Clean Tech Incubator). They are currently running an IndieGoGo to sell memberships. If you are in the LA area or would like to sponsor a membership please go to this link: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/what-will-you-make-today-design--2#/ Mentos on the surface look very smooth however at microscopic level they tons of mini little crevasses (like peaks and valleys) and its in these little areas that are know as nucleation sites. They trap little tiny pockets of air, and when the dissolved CO2 hits these nucleation sites it forms a bubble. The bubbles grow with additional C02 dissolving into them until they are buoyant enough to rise to the top of the container. If we add enough Mentos, we will get A LOT of CO2 bubbles forming, so many in fact that it will turn to what we call a foam fountain. AND if we have a system that creates pressure of this foam we can direct it and send it easily over 5 meters or roughly 16 feet. And that’s exactly what we did! Here are the specs for how we broke the record. -About 20 L of soda (Diet Coke… research on the internet suggests this is the best due to high C02 levels and the aspartame working as a surfactant, weakening surface tension and allowing the fizz to break free faster) -9 packs of Mentos -Carbonating the soda with cold soda to get as much CO2 dissolved as possible -Used a poly carbonate 5 gallon water jug -Created a Mentos dropping devise with a 3D printer to easily drop Mentos, redirect the soda stream, and maximize pressure.

You Are Running Wrong
 
05:14
SUBSCRIBE!: http://bit.ly/1G97GmA SHARE THIS VIDEO: https://youtu.be/KVKmPjKsVt4 You’re running wrong!!! And I know what you’re saying… nah nah, I’ve been doing it like this since I was 6… but hey just because you’ve done it your whole life doesn’t mean you’ve been doing it CORRECTLY. This topic became super important to me when I decide to run a marathon… yes a 26.2 mile full marathon. And I was sober when I made this decision, it was one of those things I wanted to cross it off the “life” bucket list. And while training for my marathon I ran Into a different style of running. During my weekend long runs I would hit mile 11 and my knees would start to hurt. The pain was centralized right beneath my kneecap, and became so bad I contemplated … calling an Uber or worse…. walking … the ultimate fail for marathon training. Since the running-shoe industry wouldn’t be invented for another 1,960,000 years, the earliest humans ran barefoot, which is a very different running style than what we are used to today. In the modern age we are much more familiar with a style that reflects the addition of cushy foam or air filled souls. While these shoes were designed to “correct” runner’s strides and reduce stress on the body they might actually be doing the opposite. In fact having cushy souls is not a pre-requisite for running very long distances like the marathon I was training for. For example the Japanese Marathon Monks run over 50 miles a day for 100 days and only with straw handmade running shoes! And the Tarahumara people of Northwest Mexico have a tradition of running 200 miles in just under two days…using minimalistic footwear that look a lot like flip-flops. What does the proper form look like? This new form has your foot hitting the ground directly underneath your hips, with your back straight (not slouching forward)… Your shoulders should be low and loose with your hands slightly open as if your holding a potato ship without crushing it. You’ll be looking forward with your eyes scanning the horizon with a straight neck and level chin….and for the record, because this come so much in running forums, it actually doesn’t matter what part of your foot hits first (heel, mid, toe strike on screen) as long as your foot is landing directly underneath you. So the next time you go for a run or if you’re training for a long distance race try, what I call the “poop in the pants method”…it’s not only the form of our early running ancestors but also the form that will save your body from injury in the long run Follow Nickipedia Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/nickuhas Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/nickuhas Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/uhasbrand Production Team: Writer/Producer: Nick Uhas Editor: Aaron Shafer Music Composer Intro "Jingle": Aaron Shafer DP: Sam Mosco Sound: Matt Vieira Sources: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tarahumara_people http://www.runnersworld.com/barefoot-running-minimalism/new-study-reaches-different-conclusion-on-kenyan-foot-strikes http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Running http://www.chrismcdougall.com/born-to-run/the-barefoot-running-debate/ http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2004/11/041123163757.htm http://www.runnersworld.com/injury-treatment/forward-lean-while-running-might-reduce-knee-pain http://www.barefootrunning.fas.harvard.edu/4BiomechanicsofFootStrike.html http://www.runnersworld.com/barefoot-running-minimalism/new-study-reaches-different-conclusion-on-kenyan-foot-strikes http://www.footsmart.com/health-resource-center/leg/knee-pain http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2004/11/041123163757.htm http://www.der.org/films/marathon-monks.html http://www.chrismcdougall.com/born-to-run/the-barefoot-running-debate/ https://www.newscientist.com/article/dn6681-evolution-made-humans-marathon-runners/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rar%C3%A1muri_people http://www.runnersworld.com/running-tips/perfect-running-form http://greatist.com/move/proper-running-form-tips

GoPro Flight: Throwing A Foam Airplane Off A HUGE Mountain

SUBSCRIBE!: http://bit.ly/1G97GmA SHARE THIS VIDEO: https://youtu.be/LwX9ugZ8tcs This video features our full flight from the GoPro camera!! I thought the video was just too cool not to show in its full form. Also take note at HOW LONG the flight time is!!!! All we did was throw the foam glider off the mountain! Did this exceed your expectations? Were you surprised at how long it went? Let me know in comment section down below! As a kid I LOVED when my parents took me to a store that had foam gliders. We would always play with them until the wings broke off and could not be repaired with duct tape. However, I always wondered how far a foam glider would fly if it were thrown off of an incredibly high platform… like a mountain!?!@! We hiked up to the tallest point we had access too (Mt. Allen in the Santa Monica Mountains) and threw our glider out into the wind. The result was MIND BLOWING!!! I’m so proud of our little foam glider/GoPro set up. The footage is so beautiful. And the reason all of this is even possible is because of the wing of the plane. The wing has a special shape that allows for “lift”. Lift is generated when there is high pressure below the wing and low pressure above it. The explanation for how this happens is actually very advanced.

Another property is that is displaces other gases in the atmosphere like oxygen, which means it can put out FIRE!

27 Weird Octopus Facts
 
10:47
SUBSCRIBE!: http://bit.ly/1G97GmA SHARE THIS VIDEO: https://youtu.be/HlgIqSfz1RU Over break I went to Dallas to visit my girlfriend’s family and we started talking about octopuses because her nephew has a recent fascination with them. And as we started talking about octopus I also got curious about them too. I had also just watched Saving Dory on the airplane which had a super cool octopus, a mimic octopus to be exact, as one of the main characters… so I guess octopuses were just on my brain. I then started doing some research, and yea Octopuses are SUPER WEIRD and so here’s 27 super weird octopus facts. 1) first off, plural of octopus is not octopi, but rather octopuses. 2) when octopuses get bored they eat their arms. The technical term of this behavior is called “autophagy”, and is observed when octopuses are in environments that are not very stimulating. 3) All octopuses are venomous. 4) An octopus can change the color of its entire body in just three-tenths of second. 5) They have no internal or external skeleton, which allows them to squeeze into and out of very tight places about the size of their eyes. 20) The only hard part of their bodies is a sharp parrot like beak located where the arms converge. 6) All octopuses have really short life spans. 7) They can withstand terrible break ups because they have three hearts. 22) When an octopus is swimming the heart that provides the blood to the organs stops beating. 10) Octopuses have 8 arms not tentacles. 8) Due to a copper rich protein called hemocyanin that is used to transport oxygen in octopuses, they have blue blood. 21) The male uses a specialized third right arm, called a hectocotylus as its reproductive organ. 9) Octopus parents die pretty quickly after mating. 11) Each suction cup is equipped with chemoreceptors so the octopus can taste what it’s touching. 12) Each arm usually has up to 240 suction cups with one suction cup being able to hold a weight or force up to 35 lbs 13) 2/3 of the octopuses neurons are in its tentacles. So like basically brain-arms 14) Octopuses are super old! The oldest know fossil of an octopus is 296 millions years ago, which is older than dinosaurs by millions of years. 15) Octopus ink is not just to hide from predators. This defensive chemical is so potent that if the octopus doesn’t escape it’s own ink cloud it can die! 16) Most octopuses for human consumption comes from north and west Africa 17) the country that eats the most octopus is Korea 18) According to the UN food and Agriculture Organization about 270,000 tons or 540,000,000 pounds of octopus are imported by different countries around the world. 19) the word octopus comes from the Greek “oktÓpus” which means “eight foot” 23) the typical octopus is 12-36 inches long and weighs 6-22 pounds. However, the giant pacific octopus typically grows 16 feet and weighs 110 pounds. 24) the largest giant pacific octopus was recorded to be 30 feet long and weigh more than 600 lbs 25) the smallest octopus is the Octopus wolfi. Its smaller than an inch and weighs less than a gram. 26) Octopus are classified as carnivores and eat clams, shrimp, lobster, fish, sharks and even birds! 27) Octopuses are considered to be about as smart as the household cat. 28) After the first-ever full genome sequence of an octopus, biologist claimed octopuses could not be compared to any other animal on the planet. Their genome yields an unprecedented level of complexity with 33,000 protein coding genes more than humans. Their DNA also seems to be highly re-arranged with genetic information leaping around the genome. This actually lead people to believe octopuses are alien however other scientists like Charles Mudese said this “no matter how crazy an animal's DNA might appear, it is probably from this planet if its cells contain the energy-generating organelles called mitochondria," 29) When the octopus moves around regardless of the bodies position the eyes remain at the same orientation.

Potato Launcher DIY : Super Dangerous !!!
 
06:15
SUBSCRIBE!: http://bit.ly/1G97GmA SHARE THIS VIDEO: https://youtu.be/4z6amELU0LY As a kid my parents were very education forward, however they had their limitations. When my brother and I asked to make a potato launcher with ABS or PVC piping they said no. Well now that I have this channel I thought it the perfect excuse to finally make one! In our next video we go out to the desert to test the FULL POWER of Darth Potato! The engineering on this project is pretty rich. Nothing in this process is quite difficult it’s just you might need some power tools to make the build easier. The one thing I would suggest is to always wait 24 hours for your glue to dry before testing out the potato launcher. You DO NOT want the launcher to come apart because of the combustion. The last thing that I think gets missed a lot in online builds is discussing the ignition source. The igniter is basically a grill igniter. The tricky part is getting the wires in an arrangement that looks like a spark plug for a car. We used hot glue to attach the free wires (positive and negative) to the actual body of the igniter, this made it close enough to make a spark Follow Nickipedia Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/nickuhas Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/nickuhas Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/uhasbrand Nickipedia Website: http://www.nickipedia.com Production Team: Writer/Producer: Nick Uhas Editor: Griffin Lewis DP: Sam Mosco Sources: http://www.instructables.com/id/The-Original-Potato-Cannon/ http://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Potato-Gun http://www.wikihow.com/Build-a-Potato-Launcher

400 LBS Of ROTTING OOBLECK: Solid or Liquid? IT'S BOTH
 
06:43
SUBSCRIBE!: http://bit.ly/1G97GmA SHARE THIS VIDEO: https://youtu.be/POBmaBk3xGU 400 LBS of corn starch and water smells awful when it begins to ROT!!! So here’s how this all happened. The Today Show reached out to me and said they wanted to do MORE experiments… so I said OF COURSE!!!! One of the experiments we began testing before we do it live in front of all of America is the “Oobleck” or “walking on water” experiment that makes use of corn starch and water as a non-Newtonian fluid. I must say I had a TON of fun with this experiment. And since the Today show always wants to go BIG… we went BIG and got 400lbs of corn start to fill a 10 gallon pool with oobleck. The one thing I forgot is that cornstarch has sugar in it, so if you add water and then leave it out in the open air it will ROT!!! And so it did just that, and over 400lbs of oobleck started to rot in my buddies back yard. The clean up was anything but fun as the smell was so intense I could taste it! I would describe it as sour socks meets four week old cottage cheese left out in the sun. I almost puked. Either way this experiment is super fun and can be done on a smaller scale. Below is how to make oobleck and it’s very not dangerous so this one is kid friendly… enjoy!!! Ohh and make sure to clean it up… because it will rot ; ) Oobleck is a non-Newtonian fluid; it has properties of both liquids and solids. You can dip your hand into it like a liquid, but if you quickly squeeze the oobleck or step on it, it will feel solid. The name oobleck actualy comes from the Dr. Seuss book, “Bartholomew and the Oobleck.” In the story oobleck is a gooey green substance that fell from the sky and wreaked havoc in the kingdom. Making oobleck is easy. Here's a recipe: Oobleck ingredients • 1 part water • 1.5 to 2 parts cornstarch • Small amount of food coloring (optional) Follow Nickipedia Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/nickuhas Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/nickuhas Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/uhasbrand Nickipedia WebSite: http://www.nickipedia.com Production Team: Writer/Producer: Nick Uhas Editor: Griffin Louis DP: Sam Mosco Sources: http://www.livescience.com/21536-oobleck-recipe.html https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-Newtonian_fluid

Maybe even in your pocket. Heck, maybe it IS your pocket. The space program in many ways is “the people’s science lab”, and so here’s the rundown on some NASA goodies that have trickled down to us regular peeps over the years: 1. Better tires for your car 2. Pavement grooves 3. The smoke detector 4. Fireproof paint 5. Invisible Braces 6. Infrared thermometers 7. Memory foam 8. Artificial Limbs 9. Solar Panels 10. Enriched Baby Formula 11. Video Enhancing and Analysis Systems 12. The Dustbuster 13. Ventricular Assist Device 14. Land Mine Removal 15. Improved Mine Safety 16. Chemical Detection 17. Freeze Dried Food - In planning for the long-duration Apollo missions, NASA conducted extensive research into space food. Freeze drying is when foods are cooked, flash frozen, and then slowly heated in a vacuum chamber to remove the ice crystals formed by the freezing process. The final product retains 98 percent of its nutrition and weighs only 20 percent of its original weight. That means some pretty tasty food options for backpacking and for situations where all you have is boiling water. Astronaut ice cream anyone? 18. Food safety 19. Performance shoe insoles 20. Pollution Remediation - Petroleum Remediation Product or “PRP,” has revolutionized the way oil spills are cleaned. NASA tech, duh. 21. Water purification 22. LED lighting - High-intensity LED (Light-emitting Diodes) units were developed for the NASA space shuttles. They’re ultrabright and use tiny amounts of power. And now they’re in everything from lightbulbs to cellphones. 23. Eye Screening 24. Scratch resistant coatings 25. The Internet of Things 26. Mylar - You encounter mylar all the time. Big silvery balloons, toaster pastries, blankets for marathon runners. Mylar is a special polyester film that has been metalized, making it ultra thin, ultra strong, and because it reflects radiation and heat, it’s just perfect for space travel. Mylar was designed for NASA’s Project Echo, a balloon satellite experiment that preceded the Mercury program. 27.

27 Unusual Hair Facts
 
07:27
SUBSCRIBE!: http://bit.ly/1G97GmA SHARE THIS VIDEO: https://youtu.be/cFfJJNtN6dI Do you ever think about your hair? Sure, you spend hours of your life primping, sculpting, blow drying, and styling your ‘doo, but ever wonder what’s going on? 1. All hair is dead. No amount of fruit, fructis, herbal essence, or other food product will change this fact. 2. Men and women have hair that is identical in structure, making gender one of the few things that cannot be identified by your hair. 3. Next to bone marrow, hair is the fastest growing tissue in the body. 4. There is a psychiatric disorder called “trichotillomania” that is characterized by the repetitive pulling of an individual's own hair. 5. And if you want an idea of strength, did you know that if you compared a copper wire and a strand of hair with equivalent diameters, the strand of hair is stronger? 6. Anticipating sex makes hair grow faster. Ok, so this must be some cosmic joke. I just waxed... 7. In the 1950’s, approximately 7% of women dyed their hair, compared to nowadays when in 2015 upwards of 75% of women colored their hair. 8. And enough about where it is, let’s talk about where it ain’t. Your mucous membranes, your lips, the palms of your hands and the soles of your feet are the only areas on the human body that is unable to grow hair. 9. The human body forms all of its hair follicles by the time that a fetus is five months old and still in the womb. 10. Wet hair can expand up to 30% of its length when its wet, demonstrating how elastic hair is even if it doesn’t feel that way! Wet hair can also expand your coolness by up to 30% if you can pull it off. 11. By the time an average woman reaches the age of 65, she will have spent upwards of 7 months of her life washing,drying, and styling her hair. 12. Conversely, a man will spend approximately 5 months of his life shaving his face. More if he’s wooly willy. 13. Trichoptilosis is the scientific name for that pesky thing known as a split end. 14. The natural color of one’s hair is linked to the density of one’s hair, with blondes having the highest number of strands and redheads having the fewest number of strands of hair on their heads. BTW, more on this in my Nickipedia episode on redheads. 15. Back in time…while some might think that Brazilians were the founders of waxing (wink wink), in actuality, ancient Egyptians were the first to experiment with the removal of unwanted body hair. 16. During the Victorian Era the silky locks of the deceased were used to make lockets and jewelry. Creepy, creepy jewelry. 17. In Venice, during the Renaissance Era, women used to use horse urine in an attempt to color their hair blonde. I guess for me, the big question is how the urine was administered. 18. While everyone associates Ireland with redheads, in actuality, the United States has the most redheads (in terms of quantity) living in a country, and Scotland has the most redheads (highest proportion) in a country. 19. Hypertrichosis is the scientific name for excessive hair growth on a human body part. It’s also the sworn enemy of Larry, the name I gave my nose hair clippers. 20. A grey hair can appear in as little as 14 days due to stress or aging. And you guys, it’s ok to cry when you see one. And then immediately pluck it the eff out! It’s ok to cry. 21. Black is the most common color of hair, and red is the least common color of hair, with only 1% of people being born as gingers. 22. A strand of hair can have a lifespan of up to 5 to 7 years. One dog year. 23. Each individual hair strand consists of its own nerve, muscle, and blood supply. Think about all that waste the next time you pluck. 24. Goosebumps are a reaction we experience when we are scared or cold, caused by the contraction of each muscle for each hair strand which results in the hair rising. 25. Eyelashes are meant to keep oils and particles out of the eye, and have an average lifespan of around 150 days. 26.The average american woman spends upwards of $800 annually on hair products, not including additional hair services such as coloring, cutting, and styling. 27. Humans lose an average of 25-150 strands of hair a day, but don’t worry, because we have to lose over 50% of our hair in order for baldness to become apparent.

Why Is ICE Slippery?
 
03:16
SUBSCRIBE!: http://bit.ly/1G97GmA SHARE THIS VIDEO: https://youtu.be/sd3MeswzWU0 Why is ICE or snow for that matter SLIPPERY? In the science world there are two common explanations. The first one says that the melting point of ice rises when you apply pressure or squeeze it. This would explain why ice skates work. The pressure of the persons body exerting on the ice below the confined to just the blade of the ice skate creates pressure… This pressure raises the melting point which creates a thin layer of water that becomes very slippery. So while this pressure explanation makes sense for ice skaters it doesn’t make sense for snow sports like snowboarding, skiing, or sledding. Since equipment has a much larger flat surface distributing your weight, this leads to a lower pressure. The pressure wouldn’t be enough to melt the snow more than a degree or so, clearly not enoghh to generate slippery water if the outside air were just a few degrees colder than freezing. What could elese could be at work here? One possibility is friction. It has been calculated that going down a mountain at 22 miles per hour(36 KPH), which (pretty average for snowboarding) with someone who weights 165 lbs (75 KGs) would generate watts of hear power due to friction. This is 3 times the amount of watts needed for a curling iron! However since it takes energy to melt snow the bottom of your snowboard or skis would never get this hot. But even if you were outside snowboarding when it was -22F (-30C) the friction form moving slowly on a board is enough to melt the snow providing a thin water layer to glide on. And I can vouch for the friction theory here because when we went sanboarding, both the board and sleds were hot to the touch once going down the hill, and since out sensory neurons in our hands won’t let us hold something over 140F (60C) I’d say we were in the range of 130-150 degrees generated from friction alone!
