Welcome back to Fridaaaaaaaaaay!

And your Friday Videos. The last one before Christmas!

That was fast.

Here we go!

Package Thief vs. Glitter Bomb Trap

Ex-NASA engineer and maker Mark Rober was sick of having packages stolen from his front porch, so he over-engineered an absolutely incredible device that exacts some pretty fantastic revenge against the package thieves.

I hate that this has become such an epidemic. I hope these morons spend months cleaning up the glitter from their cars and homes. So good.

It’s making the rounds, but it definitely deserves the views. Repeatedly entertaining.

Die Hard | The Greatest Christmas Story

Just in time for the holidays comes this Christmas-centric re-cut of the trailer for Die Hard, from the actual studio that released the film.

Kind of a genius move.

Late 1890s – A Trip Through Paris, France (speed corrected w/ added sound)

There appear to be more and more of these. It’s astonishing the clarity and “presence” these short films have once they’ve been cleaned up and stabilized.

Andrew Szydlo: 25 Chemistry Experiments in 15 Minutes

A TED Newcastle talk from this past November. Just a whirlwind of chemistry fundamentals at record speed. Super entertaining and informative.

Speaking of experiments…

Bonus Video!

Handheld Inverted Fire Tornado Bubble With A 66Mm Wand

What a strange, but still lovely hobby.

And this concludes the last Friday Videos before Christmas of 2018!

Thanks for playing along at home everybody. Have a fantastic Holiday!

See you next week.
