Mind Blown… Feather and Bowling ball dropped in vacuum.

Ever heard the saying that if a feather and a bowling ball were dropped in a vacuum, they would hit the ground at the same time?… Neither have we, but we have heard many similar sayings and claims by okes. Usually around braais as useless facts.

Well, we have wondered whether that is true. Have a look here as Brian Cox drops a few feathers and a bowling ball at the same time, in the world’s largest vacuum chamber.

So, apparently Isaac Newton’s theory of gravity, is no longer a theory. It is clearly visible that it is only the drag / friction of the air that holds the feather back.

This experiment was done in NASA’s Space Simulation Vacuum Chamber, just outside of Cleveland, Ohio.

Man this is awesome!!!

World’s Best 4×4

Everyone always thinks and debates that their 4×4 is the best in the world and nothing else comes close, and all that other jazz….

But, let us here at finally put all arguments to rest. We know, FOR A FACT, that the best 4×4 in the whole world is a City Golf. Any city golf will do, but the best of the best are the rentals.

Because if it’s not your car, it can go anywhere. How many memories we have in Avis City Golfs. Most people learned how to do their first handbrake turns in them as well.

Just to prove our point and attest to the absolute supremacy of the Rental City Golf, check this one running around Atlantis dunes in the Cape, along with many other million Rand 4x4s.
