A Lightning Storm Captured In Slow Motion Is Like An Electric Ballet

Video: Even as a little kid who wanted lightning to strike me so I could get superpowers, I’ve always loved seeing the electric bolts get speared down from the clouds.

Video: A tennis ball is squishy and bouncy and totally perfect for slow-motion fun. Watch as a tennis racket hits the fuzzy yellow green ball at 229km/h in slow motion, it’s incredible.

Look How Amazingly Still A Hummingbird's Body Is When It Flies

Video: Here’s a video of hummingbirds flying in slow motion. It’s really cool to see how different the speed of its wings move versus the stillness of its body.

I’ll never not be impressed by hummingbirds, they fly like how I imagine little robots to fly.

What Happens When You Pour Water On An Oil Fire In Slow-Motion

Video: Really bad things happen. Although everyone should know this, here’s a lovely slow-motion video reminder on what happens when you pour water onto an oil fire in an attempt to put it out: the fire gets even crazier, because the water vaporises into steam, which expands causing it to spit out the oil, which makes the flames even bigger.
