I can't count how many people I've pointed to this video when they were unable to understand my explanation.

Great post!

A fucking PLUS video. This is why all my Toyota trucks must be 4x4 AND have a locking rear diff...I need that true 3 wheel drive.

I watched it, then immediately followed a link to find out how the limited slip differential works

squrlz4ever I always wondered how the limited slip differential worked, and this video showed me that there are videos out there that would actually explain it.

I wonder if there's a video out there that explains how a toilet bowl is always filled to the correct amount after flushing - even if the powers out.

punko What do you mean, even if the power is out? Haha do you plug your toilet into an outlet? It's just gravity my man.

punko Toilets are complicated. Fortunately for us squirrels, we just poop off of tree branches when nature calls. Look out below!

Ok.

  1. That was absolutely excellent.
  2. i learned something.
  3. why did tv stop doing things like this?
  4. why don't we bring stuff like this back?
  5. this is how tv should have been.
  6. i will never forget this lesson as long as i live, and it was 5m
  7. fancylad maybe you could start a new I-A-B feature, "daily lesson", something serious (not lame junk), to teach people something new every day, thats in a straightforward manner like this

monkwarrior I agree this is cool. This is not popular for the same reason honey boo boo is on TLC & the history channel has pawn stars. Maybe the same reason trump got elected.
