I've been waiting for the crossover episode between my explosive bat and a nut cracker for over a year. It was totally worth the wait. Hope you enjoy it!

      I really wonder if the atf would consider what you just built a suppressor even you just called it a muffler your using want the atf would consider a blank that is being suppressed maybe be extremely careful love the content and I don’t wanna see you being a felon the main reason i say this is most boom sticks are piston operating systems

    I absolutely love this channel, I'm a CNC machinist, changed careers in my late 20's and went back to school for CNC and still now that I've been working in the field for almost 3 years feel like a rookie sometimes. Every video you make I either learn something new or learn a different way of solving a problem. And it's fun having a channel to talk to a bunch of old shop monkeys about (I'm by far the youngest guy at my job) thanks for all you do man and have a happy holiday!

    • Harold Seah
      Harold Seah

      @Patrick Herke Thank you for your considered reply. I will readily admit that complexity in and of itself cannot prove the existence of God. But I would also point out that the present model of chemical evolution/abiogenesis cannot account for the complexity of life. The chemistry involved cannot even be replicated with pure ingredients in lab conditions let alone in a pre-biotic earth. As such, to accept evolution as fact is frankly absurd in my view and the idea that we were created by an eternal God does seem on balance far more plausible.

    • Patrick Herke
      Patrick Herke

      @Harold Seah Complexity really has very little to do with likelihood of intelligent design. Instead if you said that, I'd suggest that there are no known natural processes that would shape metal in such a way, however, there are many ways that and similar things are actively being made by people. (the second half with evidence for the human made explanation is really important) Thus making unlikely to happen by chance. And then ask if you had evidence suggesting such processes did exist. As for the existence of life, the broad strokes of how it propagates and evolves are reasonably well understood. And there are a number of reasonable hypotheses for how it first came to be on Earth. One of these includes the fact that amino acids have been shown to be able to form from chemicals present on Earth and atmospheric electricity. Some others center around the formation of proteins, RNA, proto-cells (which have been replicated), and metabolism first hypotheses. However, if you suggest life is complex therefore something (in your case, God) made life, you run into a problem. The assumption that something must have made life seems to indicate that complexity is necessary to create complexity. As such God must be complex. But if God is complex, how did God come to be? Thus, in introducing God to the equation, we haven't actually gotten any closer to an answer. We've just added a layer of abstraction to the problem. Most religions stop around here and say well, God's beyond our understanding, or you need to have faith, or something like that. Because most people are more comfortable with the idea that even if they don't understand how this world works, someone does and that entity can help them. Because you can pray to God, you can make sacrifices, you can persuade another intelligent being. But you can't argue with the temperature or the atmospheric pressure. You can't argue with gravity.

    • Harold Seah
      Harold Seah

      @hjalar I hear you, and I used to think that as well. But consider if I said that the Nutcracker in Shane's video was made by accident even if it is clearly designed with purpose, function and intent. You would laugh at me, and point to the clear evidence of design to say someone must have made it. Surely we are more complex than a shotgun-shell actuated nutcraker, and someone must have made us. Someone who is actually God-tier for He is God.

    I love your videos! I watch them on my lunch breaks and definitely stay up too late learning about engineering. In a video you said that you like using the Concepts app on your iPad. I installed it and I really like scratching and planning things out there. Another app similar to that is Shapr3D. I don’t use it much, but I thought you could use it because of the ability to quickly draw out 3D models on your iPad. Just thought you might benefit from something like that!

The way that you can break down physics and make it understandable and humorous helps prove that science can be fun and exciting. I wish when I was in high school i had had a teacher who could break things down the same way you do. Please keep it up. Can’t wait to see what problem I never thought about before yet always wanted an answer to you tackle next

    I would think there's an issue with each shell firing at slightly different times which is also reducing performance. Also, that OSB isn't protecting you from anything. lol

    You should design and build a robot that finds devices that need charging and charges them up. In fact if you make two I'll buy one.

    Hey, great stuff! I’d like to take the chance to pitch to you a cool idea: remote tennis harness; two air walls with smoke in the middle and a backside projector project the adversary in front of you; the ball vel and angvel are tracked via software and a ball shooter replicates the adversary balls arriving from the other half of the field. Automatic ball boy would be a plus! Wouldn’t it be such a cool idea??

    Ah yes, not the 200 caliber nut buster we deserved, but the 200 caliber nut buster we needed

      Also, as far as the mm measurement stands when asking about ammo or a firearm that uses said ammo, the word "chambered" sometimes is used when referring to the firearm. For example; The Desert Eagle Full size handgun was available in three different calibers. The customer had the option of choosing their Desert Eagle chambered in .357, .44 Magnum, or .50 caliber. The total empty weight of the pistol remained at 8.5 lbs regardless of caliber chosen. The smaller and much less expensive version called, "Baby Eagle", was also a available in three different calibers as well, chambered in 9mm, .40 cal, or . 41 caliber. I found the .40 and .41 caliber options very odd back in the early 1990's when I first discovered the Baby Eagle. It was so much lighter and easier to handle than the full size of course, but just how drastic the difference was between them is night and day. I preferred the smaller version then and I still prefer now rather than the full size.

      @e-zeeTV Yeah. This brought out some interesting research, too! Honestly, classifying firearms by caliber is almost meaningless since we stopped using spherical bullets. Nowadays, multiple rounds with the same bullet diameter can be WILDLY different in powder charge, such as the .50 GI and .50 BMG. Thank you! The same to you and yours!

      @Jay Russell - '02, LB7 Duramax what about a 5.56 calibre? Anyway i was only trying to correct the persons maths (1/2 × 4 =2) i do understand what you are saying though. Its confusing because when people say .50 cal, the inch is dropped but when they say 9mm, calibre is dropped . Good chat anyway hope you & your loved have a good Christmas .

      @e-zeeTV That's fair. Again, I admit that, at its most general, caliber just means the inside diameter of a firearm, and does not specify a unit. However, as is the case with many words, the meaning of it can vary from place to place. So, in the US - where this video was made and where I'm commenting from - caliber refers to 1/100th of an inch. That's how it's virtually always used. Also, I've never heard anyone refer to a metric round as "9 mm caliber". Caliber is virtually always dropped when describing a metric cartridge. Culture has a strange way of overriding the dictionary, doesn't it? I hear so many words get used by the kids at my church in a way that's radically different from the definition. Yet, if I comment on it, they look at me like I'm an alien or something. Haha!
