The word Kugelblitz originates from germany and could be translated into lightningball or something similar. In common language you also call rather fat people running fast a Kugelblitz, so not always appropriate as a compliment. :P

He actually makes a minor error at the 1:10 mark when he states that the hottest temp on earth was 129F. I had just read an article that it got up to 134F (56.67C) back in 1913 in Death Valley. It is just a few degrees but when talking records, that counts. Read more at this link:
