This Is What A Jellyfish Sting Looks Like In Microscopic Slow Motion

If you’ve ever been stung by a jellyfish, you’ll know how incredibly painful it is — but you might not know why. In fact, their tentacles are covered in explosive cells that are like miniature hypodermic syringes filled with venom — and in this video, you can see how they work in microscopic slow motion.


Gorgeous Slow-Mo Of The Machine-Like Beauty Of Honeybees In Flight

Video: Photographer Michael Sutton spent hours getting up close and personal with a hive of honey bees at Hillside Apiaries in New Hampshire. He got stung three times. But he also got this gorgeous slo-mo footage of honey bees in flight. I bet you’ll never look at a bee the same way. There’s something really engrossing about seeing a bee’s flight slowed down so far, you can see it beating its wings. It all looks so improbable — it seems like there’s too much body and not enough wing to sustain flight. Good thing nobody told the bees.


Slow-Mo Bullfrogs Look Rather Dramatic

Video: During a downpour in the forests near Robert Frost Farm, photographer Michael N. Sutton took some footage of bullfrogs in a pond. At normal speeds, they’d probably look no different than any other frogs. But filmed in HD at 1000 frames per second, they suddenly become regal, stately. And oh so dramatic.


Terrifying Slow-Motion Video Of A Missile That Never Misses Its Target

No matter how fast you’re driving, no matter the weather conditions, if someone fires a Brimstone missile from a MQ-9 Reaper drone, and you’re the target, you’re dead. This slow-motion test compilation shows its terrifying precision and the destruction that follows. Just look at that shockwave moving.


What Getting A Tattoo Looks Like In Super Slow Motion

If you ever wondered what getting a tattoo feels like, just watch this super slow motion video showing up close shots of the tattoo needle relentlessly stabbing people’s skin over and over again so that the ink sets underneath. It’s hypnotic and rhythmic actually, if you’re the type to enjoy seeing skin bounce up and down like jello and like to think about pain and your own mortality every now and again.


This Is What Fireworks Do When You Fire Them Inside Your Living Room

Video: Dumt & Farligt (Stupid & Dangerous) is a Danish TV program that really lives up to its name: They do lots of dumb and hazardous things while filming using a Phantom camera in slow motion. Like firing big fireworks in a living room, burning all the furniture in the process.


Watch A Chainsaw Open A Beer In Glorious Slow Motion

First off, don’t do this. Seriously. Don’t. It’s an old trick, and probably a great way to stab yourself in the eye with a flying bottle cap. But it sure looks pretty in slow motion, as the goofballs at Slow Mo Lab are here to show us.


Fun Video Of Babies Trying Lemon For The First Time In Slow Motion

Someone had a brilliant idea: Let’s give babies lemon wedges for the first time — just like every single parent does in the privacy of their home — and record their reaction in slow motion so the entire world can laugh at them.


The Science Of The Slapshot: Stanley Cup Slo-Mo Physics

The slapshot is the fastest shot in hockey. One satisfying thwack and the puck goes flying at incredible speeds. Except it’s not really one thwack, it’s two, and our buddy Destin at Smarter Every Day has both the science know-how and the super high-speed slow-motion cameras to show you exactly how it works.


Watching A 150 Mouse Trap Chain Reaction In Super Slo-Mo Is Magical

They’re a staple of cartoon prankery, but thanks to the magic of high-speed photography, we now have real-life proof that a room full of primed mouse traps is an awesome thing. The Slow Mo Guys put 150 of them on a table and then sacrificed themselves for science — and some awesome footage — by setting them off.
