Default Physics is fun!

So I was playing around on the YT last night and saw this video of two vorticies being run head on at eachother....and it's just sweetness..



Which led me to this video of basically an oversized potato cannon with a cone-shaped barrel to induce a powerful vortex...I want to build one of these...fun potential is high...



Which led me to this video..demonstrating that Hichhicker's Guide to the Galaxy was right when they talked about Dolphins being smarter than humans lol




*forgive me if any of my YT links don't work, I cannot view YT at work and a going by pulling the properties from Google links :(

You know about Airzookas? They shoot vortex rings. I made one out of a full size trash can. Trashcanzooka plus fog machine = massive fun!

Oh my friend had some that you buy at the store and were terrorizing his dogs with them...after that we went outside and filled them with smoke...they'd be really fun if they weren't so noisy
