Take hundreds of eggs. Add some guys armed with weapons and sophisticated video gear capable of shooting ultra slow motion. What do you have? Lots of fun, that's for sure. But also a great way to visualize the incredible complexity of collisions and explosions that otherwise unfold too fast for the human eye to see.
Just have a look at the new episode of the YouTube video series Dude Perfect (above).
Chicken eggs are clearly no match for bullwhips and crossbows. But they're a lot stronger than you might expect. In fact, when pressure is evenly distributed around an egg, it can withstand the weight of an adult human body.
Eggs crack easily, of course, when pressure is applied to a small portion of their structure, as when you crack an egg against the edge of a mixing bowl or when a chick pecks through the shell with its beak -- or when some dude shoots it with a crossbow.
