    1:15 This actually because American plugs don't have ground cables (the top pin) unlike British and most other plugs around the world

    How about filming either some subject at an Indy 500, cars zooooooming by the fence line, or at a drag race, lots of flames pouring out of the pipes and such.

    I've never heard of milk being put in tea. I'll have to try it even though it sounds gross.

    I bet it would be even cooler if the spin was slower! At this speed the thing at the bottom is breaking the water and making it bubblee and foamie! Just a little slower that it equalizes with the vortex, would be so smooth. But still awesome frames!

    The reason they couldn't get it simultaneous; when 2 people try to let go at the same time there will always be a delay between them bc of perceptional difference. If 1 does both I bet he could get it almost perfectly. Imo
