- Instead of plunking down serious coin on electric guitars and drum sets,
get yourself to a lab full of awesome-sounding science equipment.
- i love you
- This is great, but watching it is going to give SOMEBODY a seizure.
- was this for Mystery Guitar Man?
- Merci a L'Oeil de Links
- I just can't stop my eyes from drifting to the related videos.

can change key. But still a cool video.
- Compression wave caused by molecules being launched a different wavelengths
- @Makutus It's a high-impact blast rig, used to simulate the force of an
explosion or impact (such as a car accident) on the leg.
- God I love science.
- @RabidIBM same man, just sayinnn.

- the song is about marijuana among other things. maybe include a reasoning
behind the song selection? lol
