The olympians have changed: no place for the average Joe now


ASAP Science will release each day of the Olympics a new video in which we will find out new and interesting things. For example, the first time that the Olympics took place, in 1924, the participants were chose among the average Joe, but today you will not be able to compete unless you have special traits.

That means that, depending on the sport you’re competing in, you need to be taller, stronger, thinner, smaller or otherwise way different than the average Joe. It seems that Olympics from Sochi is not in any way different. Wanna be an olympian? Choose a sport and be an extremely good competitor.

What aerial drones can do: amazing video of surfers doing their thing in Hawaii [video]


Pipeline Winter 2013 is one of the greatest videos of this week. It features surfers from Hawaii fighting with the waves and eventually riding them. A DJI quadcopter and a Go Pro camera were used by Eric Sterman to create this video.

Truly inspiring and it makes you wonder why I do not have such a drone in my home NOW?! Such a drone costs about $500 on Amazon. See (my affiliate) link DJI Phantom Aerial UAV Drone Quadcopter for GoPro

Do you use such a drone? What do you do with it?

Vsauce explains why your butt is important: it gives humans great endurance and more [video]


Before our behind were called butts, they were called bums. Our posterior is not a bummer, but instead it is a great part of our body that gives us endurance. When compared to other animals, like horses or antelopes, humans have greater endurance. This is a fact that I didn’t know.

Michael Stevens, aka Vsauce, explains why we still call it bottom although it is at the middle of the body: it is at the lowest level in the digestive system and, in a torso-centric view, the butt is the lowest point.

The vertical posture and good looking of out behinds is given by two big muscles in our bottoms. In any case, what most would call a bum, Vsauce would like to call it a marvel. And it is.

Awesome :)) If Google was a guy!


That is just awesome. You wouldn’t ask the questions you do if you were in front of a guy called Google. Being in front of your monitor seems just cool, but wait until you see how you sound when you ask Google, the guy, directly.

This is hilarious 😀

Scientifically accurate Santa. Auch.

When we speak about a scientifically accurate Santa we can say that Animation Domination Hi-Def has created a great video with correct, scientific explanations of what Santa does, is or how he travels.

The video tells us about child labor, a may too heavy gift bag and a lightning fast sledge ( about 300 000 times the speed of sound). This is scientifically accurate Santa. You may not like it.
