  • Can you guys do a slo mo comparison of stone vs tempered glass and ceramic/porcelain vs tempered glass. It would be nice to see how the hardness scale works in slow motion.

  • Awesome video :) Have you tried water cymatics. There is a channel called "Journey to Curiosity" that turns water droplets into shapes using sine waves and different frequencies. And another channel called "cymaticmusic" that demonstrates this. Would look so awesome in super slow mo.

  • I’ve decided to share a nightmare I had last night in a minimal length comment I have been watching so many slo mo guys videos and one way or another I ended up having a nightmare where I witness dan and gav driving and getting robbed then before they could do anything about it gav got “pewed” in the head and my brain imagined it very realistic and... in slow motion. It was traumatic
