You can jump to the 30 second mark if you’re tired of watching the caterpillar eat (which has nothing to do with the metamorphosis part of the video, anyway)

Took me a minute to figure out why this video struck me as so odd…
Then I realized he’s not wearing a helmet or pads.
Now THAT’S old school.

Despite the sun being covered by clouds a lot, the production values and labeling of the compass points still make for an engaging experience.
In the summer time at Scott Base the sun is above the horizon for 4 months, from roughly the end of the third week of October until the end of the third week of February. This shows the movement of the sun over a full 24 hour period near the peak of summer.
Camera was set to take a photo once every one minute and one second (so that the second hand would be moving). Lens was set on f22 to get enough depth of field to have the watch and horizon both in focus. A modified Orion equatorial telescope mount was used to track the sun. Camera and tracking powered by solar panel and batteries.

Every year, local communities on either side of the Apurimac River Canyon use traditional Inka engineering techniques to rebuild the Q’eswachaka Bridge. The entire bridge is built in only three days. The bridge has been rebuilt in this same location continually since the time of the Inka.

Apparently this was an actual thing, and not a parody of an actual thing.
My favorite line from the comments:
I was also a fan of the Avalanche (Rock Rock Rock), Fistful o’ Dollahs (Rock Paper Paper), and the Lawnmower (Scissors Scissors Scissors).
Personally, I find it even more entertaining because he bears a passing resemblance to Harry Mudd

The attack on the Death Star in the climax of the film Star Wars is a deliberate and acknowledged homage to the climactic sequence of The Dam Busters. In the former film, rebel pilots have to fly through a trench while evading enemy fire and fire a proton torpedo at a precise distance from the target to destroy the entire base with a single explosion; if one run fails, another run must be made by a different pilot. In addition to the similarity of the scenes, some of the dialogue is nearly identical. Star Wars also ends with an Elgarian-style march, like The Dam Busters.

CAUTION: Host is annoying and unpleasant to listen to; also, video contains pointless audio and visual effects.

Jump to 2:10 to get to his backstory (which I thought was interesting enough to sit through); jump to 2:58 if you just want to start seeing tricks. If you skip the intro, just know that he chose his background music specifically for this act. You can judge that decision for yourself, but I thought it worked well:

Just so you know, it actually ends at 3:20. There’s a lot of filler garbage after that.
And, full disclosure, I have a lot of respect for the creative genius of both these men, and was rooting for neither to lose.
