In every car manufacturer factory they do this... The only difference in Ferrari for example is that you do not have an assembly line, and that the guy works a full-day per each car to do the same job instead of a few minutes in a factory.

Wow, excellent presentation! Even I'm fairly familiar with Physics, and the concept of space-time warping is nothing new, this way of presenting things opened my eyes on how I could teach this to my children! Thanks!

+5 12. the_puiu commented 6 years ago on video Motorcyclist helps man catch the bus

Warning: foul language! :(|)

#4 I agree, a bit reckless. However apparently it's Easter (from the conversation and well-wishing between the guys) and the bus schedule is reduced to only once an hour (according to the passenger).

So you can see how he was desperate to catch the bus rather than having to wait an hour more for the next one.

+6 16. the_puiu commented 7 years ago on video A 1994 interview with Steve Jobs on his legacy

I don't necessarily worship Steve, but he managed to describe extremely accurate the world of IT and the innovations that come with the development of technology... He definitely has his sediment layer in this mountain we call civilization.

+4 17. the_puiu commented 7 years ago on video Rare colour video of London in 1927

#13, #15: The standard of the age was 16fps (frames per second). Currently we are watching at 24-25 fps. That is the reason that an old move shot at 16fps when played at 24fps create the illusion of "fast-forward". I think that the reason for the lack of the fast-forward effect is that the clip was processed to compensate for the difference. This basically requires some kind of interpolating techniques, but for simplicity think of it as a kind of "re-recording".

#9, I think you mean the GERMANS gave you rocket technology, get your facts straight. On another note, IMHO the soundtrack choice sucks considering the nature of this video...

+2 19. the_puiu commented 7 years ago on video Bat infestation on a roof

I've held a bat in my hand when I was a child, and I can tell you I've never felt before or since a softer thing in my life. The fur is simply so soft that you don't feel it at all (you almost feel only skin against your palms). It's a sensorial drunkednes: eyes tell you "look, fur!" and your fingers tell you "feel, skin and bones!".

Amazing animals, and a blessing around as pest-control.

It's sad to see the guy handle those tiles so careless, considering the fact that bats are so fragile and can get easily hurt (broken arm/wing bone, etc)...

Deffinitely agree with #9

Newsflash: any serious programmer would tell you that they are using 16-base numbers daily (called hexadecimal system). What's that special with duodecimal? Do-do...

I think many people don't even comprehend how big of a milestone was this landing. Especially since it seems it went without a glitch. Wow... no words... RESPECT, NASA!

Is only it me, or the actual reason for the fireball was that the guy had a good fart too close to the open flames? Burned underwear as a proof...

+15 26. the_puiu commented 9 years ago on video Queue to the first McDonald's in Soviet Russia

As a person growing up behind the courtain, I can tell you this:

1. Queues were common, so nothing out of the ordinary; I was doing something simmilar almost daily as a kid, and at least this one is during a sunny day... as opposed to a rainy night
2. First time it felt like a bite and a gulp of pure freedom
3. I can guarantee almost nobody left dissapointed (the first time)
4. That queue doesn't even look that scary (if you can imagine that)

No matter what we (ex-communists) say, people who didn't experience the socialist "golden age" cannot REALLY understand what was going in those people's minds. I hope you realize how lucky you westerners are, to be born just a few hundred miles to the west.

This skill is like a second nature for them. Haven't you seen pictures from Asia with entire families riding the same bike? Survival of the fittest. Those who can't manage that, doesn't survive to be 12 anyway :D

FAKE!!!
The crash is probably true, but the guy wasn't there. Check when the guy is running how suddenly he is strafing to the right in full sprint. Impossible!
