Every wondered why furry animals shake when wet? Like, scientifically wondered? You probably haven’t, but these guys have.
And in this video they investigate just why mammals do the “wet dog shake” to get dry. And it means you get to watch animals shaking in slow motion.

Professor Brian Cox, the pinup boy of physics, takes us on a journey into this trousers.
A place where we can witness the splendours of his giant balls as they burst into life.
Ever wondered what’s going on in your brain after smoking a fatty boombatty bifta (aside from “not much”)?
Well, these guys are willing to fill you in on all the details, thankfully skipping out all that Devil’s Harvest and Reefer Madness nonsense.
What happens when you take a scientist, chat-show host Ellen, liquid nitrogen and 4000 table tennis balls? Pure SCIENCE! That’s what.
I knew liquid nitrogen was good for making bananas crunchy but I had no idea it could be used for awesomeness of this magnitude…
If you thought that ‘enhancing the image’ was as bad as TV science got, I have some bad news for you. The guys who write Bones have lowered the bar.
This makes the CCTV camera image rotation thing from Enemy Of The State look totally plausable.
Yeah, why DO headphones get so tangled? Bloody things. And just what is it with rainbows and all those colours and that? Crazy really, just how do they appear, do leprechauns take a shit or something?
Well, thankfully Vsauce is here to shine the light of wisdom down our tunnels of ignorance and illuminate our minds with the wonders of science. Fuck yeah!
In the name of science this tireless pioneer jacks up the voltage on these plasma balls to see how much they can take. Will they give up like a couple of pussies or will they cry out for more?
If it wasn’t for the incredible efforts of valiant men like this, we’d still be worshipping fake deities while howling at the moon.
Just when you thought it was safe to go hiking without the fear of being abducted and having your mouth sewn to someone’s a-hole, along comes this, the sequel. And nothing really says it better than the official blurb:
“The story of a man who becomes sexually obsessed with a DVD recording of the first film in the series, The Human Centipede, and uses sandpaper to pleasure himself whilst watching the film. He decides to create a “human centipede” of his own, this time comprised of twelve victims as opposed to the first film’s three.” Scientifically inaccurate horror films. Fuck yeah.
Science is cool, ok, so it might be a complete biatch to learn what you need to learn to make it through college, but never lose sight of the fact that….it really is COOL!
However, for those of us whose braincells were not genetically developed to process such learning, auto-tuned science is infinitely cooler!
OK, so Easter might have passed but it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy some Cadbury’s Creme Eggs being dessicated, burnt, battered, boiled and generally mistreated. They deserve it, just think of all the pounds of weight they’ve added to your flabby body.
It’s basically a science lesson, but like all the best science lessons it involves fire and destroying things and all the fun stuff that outside of a laboratory you’d be told off for doing.
