The retention of that striker piece is the most impressive part. Can't believe decelerating that thing is possible without everything tearing itself to pieces.

"what's your guess on that velocity?"
"are you serious?"
"why do you think that?"
"because that's what I calculated it at from other stuff"

My heart is so full of joy that SmarterEveryDay has recognized Shane and his channel Stuff Made Here! Shane is a genius and deserves to be up there with Dustin and Mark. Let’s get him there!!

This made me remember a quote my middle school teacher used to say "When two smart people meet, they say that the other one is smarter then themselves. When two stupid people meet, they argue that they are smarter than the other."

When you tell a nerd that he can’t hit a home run



You can hear the shock in Destin's voice at 7:15 when he asks Shane what he guesses the velocity is; "Why do you think that?"
Like he's almost scared that Shane was so close to the actual number lmfao

The most important thing is the humility these guys have even after having so much knowledge and expertise.
I love it.

I found Shane's channel about three weeks ago and thought, "I think I've found the smartest guy on the internet...and that's saying something."

"Engineering smarts" + "swinging a baseball bat ability" = 0.

Everything evens out in the end.

Perhaps have the drone over the suspected landing area?
Maybe paint the ball so it stands out?
Frankenstein the ball with a GPS tracker inside it?

Today I learned Shane is his name.

I can finally stop calling him "Guy"

11:36 You can apply that same concept to trying to jump as high as possible on a trampoline. You want to to straighten our your legs at the same time that the trampoline fabric straightens out to go higher on your jump.
