The only question I’ve ever wanted answered — besides ‘where do babies come from’ and ‘what is Branston Pickle really made of’ — is what does an exploding Molotov cocktail look like at around 2500 frames per second? Good question, glad you asked it. Watch this video for the answer.
Editor’s note: It goes without saying, don’t try this at home.
The answer comes from one of the best channels on YouTube: The Slow Mo Guys. Its one of the biggest time-sinks on the internet.
They throw a lit Molotov cocktail at a wall (which seems very close to where someone actually lives) and when slowed down, the results are nothing short of spectacular. [io9]
