More Hip-notic Skills: walking all over a mechanical bull.
Join the Simple Science and Interesting Things Community and share interesting stuff! https://plus.google.com/communities/117518490246975838002

Prior to the development of a mechanical bull, a simpler device was created by attaching ropes (sometimes a rope-and-pulley system) to the ends of a large barrel, suspending it from four points, often tall posts or the rafters of a barn. A saddle or bucking equipment would be added, and then a rider would straddle the barrel. Two to four other people would move the barrel by pulling on the ropes to emulate the movement of an animal. This "bucking barrel" is still also used as a less-expensive option for practice and entertainment

Antlion: The Ant That Blasts Itself Out of Danger With Its Face
"Nowhere are the trap-jaw’s battles more dramatic than in Florida (hell, what isn’t more dramatic in Florida?), where ferocious antlions lie in wait. These predators—actually the larval form of an order called nerve-winged insects—dig pits in sand and wait at the bottom for prey like ants to tumble in. As the victim struggles to drag itself out, the antlion flicks sand at it, ideally knocking it down and into some gnarly jaws.
Scientists have figured for a century that trap-jaw ants launch themselves to escape predation, but no one had confirmed experimentally that this actually worked well enough to boost their chances of survival—until entomologist Fred Larabee of the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign and his colleagues came along. They got themselves some antlions, starved them a bit, and dropped in two groups of trap-jaw ants, one of normal individuals and the other of ants whose jaws the scientists glued shut."

Feeding A Dust Devil.
Join the Simple Science and Interesting Things Community and share interesting stuff! https://plus.google.com/communities/117518490246975838002

A dust devil is a strong, well-formed, and relatively long-lived whirlwind, ranging from small (half a meter wide and a few meters tall) to large (more than 10 meters wide and more than 1000 meters tall). The primary vertical motion is upward. Dust devils are usually harmless, but can on rare occasions grow large enough to pose a threat to both people and property

More Vorticity: Hip-notic Skills.
Join the Simple Science and Interesting Things Community and share interesting stuff! https://plus.google.com/communities/117518490246975838002

In continuum mechanics, the vorticity is a pseudovector field that describes the local spinning motion of a continuum near some point (the tendency of something to rotate ), as would be seen by an observer located at that point and traveling along with the flow

Turquoise, Plitvice Lakes, Croatia
Waterfalls Lakes Plitvice,
Croatia National Park
Is among the 20 most beautiful lakes in the world to 17th place. The park covers an area of 33,000 hectares and includes 16 lakes in succession, connected by waterfalls.Plitvice is the oldest national park in Southeast Europa.All'interno the park there are also many caves of which only a small part is agibile.I lakes are formed by two rivers: the White River and the Black River, which flow in the river Korana. The waters of these rivers are rich in calcareous salts (mostly calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate), from the dissolution of carbonate rocks forming the geological structure of sito.Questi salts are precipitated by vegetation, forming layers of travertine , a sedimentary rock recently. Over time, these deposits forming real natural dams that act as barriers to wate

MiG-23 Fighter Jet Terrifies Bystander With Dangerously Low Flyby

By: +Nitya Rajan 
Standing idly on a runway is never a good idea, especially when there's a remote chance that a fighter jet will use it to do a stupidly low flyby. However, one clueless bystander had to learn this
