Hasn't there been like 10 videos with people popping a water balloon at high fps? It's getting overkilled.

My contribution to a myth soon to be busted by Mythbusters:
Does a bullet in flight cast a shadow? >:)

(They could just shoot a bullet and use a hfps camera to check if they see a fuckin' shadow!)

I don't wanna know the answer! (Do you think I'm that shallow?) >:)
I wanna see with my own eyes "if" a bullet in flight cast a shadow!

Seeing is believing.

I don't wanna the answer to "how did JFK die?", I wanna see it in HD with a fuckin' lot of frames per second! :D
