Metal That Repels Water: Future of Phones?

Researchers at the University of Rochester in New York have come up with a new type of metal that’s so water-resistant, drops of water literally BOUNCE right off of it.  And they posted a pretty cool video that shows how it works.

They’re hoping to use it for electronics some day, or on airplane wings to prevent them from getting covered in ice.

I want my next phone to be made out of this. Also, my toilet seat.

 

Twerker Falls Out of Car

A six-second Vine video of a girl falling out of a moving car while TWERKING is getting a bunch of hits online.  She’s hanging out of the passenger side door, and apparently she’s actually doing a dance called the “whip”, but it looks just like twerking.

Then the video cuts off right after she falls, but according to a friend she’s okay. Or she died instantly, but they have to say she’s okay in order to post the video. Either way, make sure you’re ready to tuck and roll if you’re twerking out of a moving vehicle.

On Sunday, a guy on the highway near New Brunswick, New Jersey started recording after a semi hit some black ice and crashed right in front of him.  Then he turned around . . . and saw ANOTHER semi lose control, and it was coming right at him.

Luckily, it missed him though, and the people in both trucks were okay.

54-year-old Twain Thomas was sentenced to 15 years in prison last week . . . for chopping through his neighbor’s door with a MACHETE last February, and trying to KILL him.

Twain had actually kicked the guy’s door in once before, so he bought a gun.  And this time, the neighbor defended himself by shooting him THREE TIMES.  Twain survived though, and a video of him busting through the door is up on YouTube.

Redneck Aussie vs Industrial Air Compressor

An older Australian guy attempts to smoke a cigarette and drink a beer in front of a powerful blast of air from an industrial sized air compressor. What happens next will have you in tears. Or not. Either way, you’re about to see a mortal man go up against a huge piece of machinery. Just watch it.
