Did anyone notice that the background music was from the windows XP installer (at least my installer anyway.)

What the heck?? This isn`t even close to Enya... It`s the Windows tutorial opening theme. I`ve got a video on how to find it on my YouTube account...

This is the first time ive ever seen this effect, and as soon as I saw it I figured out why (the dimple + momentum) wasnt it obvious, why was an experiment needed???

Hm. All I am left wondering, is how much tax payer money was wasted on such a stupid experiment. Not that it isn`t cool, but WhyTF coudn`t this person have just shared his discovery without all the hoopla? I don`t know, I just watched something on government spending that just irritated me to no end. Paying millions to some group to study how long it takes different ketchups to run out of bottles. Crazy wastful and stupid.

Hmm, that`s kind of interesting. The laser beam thing at the end made me chuckle. Just cuz they were talking about laser beams, haha.

Yeah, I wonder why/how he discovered that shampoo worked best for this? And what brand was that, lol

why the hell do people mix enya with this?

the song you hear is the windows XP install music..

you can find it here: C:\WINDOWS\system32\oobe\images\title.wma

and if you want music that is remotely close to that you should listen to amethystium (http://www.amethystium.com/)

probably stacey! i want to find out too. shear-thinning just means non-Newtonian as in viscosity goes down with higher rate of shear. blood does it too, it`s why it flows so smoothly in both wide arteries and thin capillaries without high blood pressure.
definitely more posts like this!
