    I didn't even notice the mirror in the beginning.

    Is anyone else having a problem with the site? Audio and video keep de-sinking, videos will just randomly end, or it will just jump to a random video. It's quite odd.

    Holy crap! I had no idea that ripple was actually legit! I mean, obviously it was exaggerated a bit, but still. I'd always just attributed it to the physic engine of the Matrix glitching and/or struggling to deal with the sudden and massive impact and explosion.

    Fun fact: The origin of the seven years bad luck superstition, came from the Romans. They believed that part of the soul was trapped in the mirror when you gazed into it, and that breaking the mirror would then break the soul. The seven years part comes from their belief that the physical body was renewed every seven years, so that's how long it would take before the soul was fully restored.

      Really? I just thought it was because mirrors used to be really expensive and rich people would tell that to their poorly educated servants as added incentive not to drop them.

      That's another one I've heard. Something about it costing 7 years of a servants wages to replace a good mirror. The Roman myth is just the one I run into the most often, and I think the earliest version.

    this was awesome, and maybe they can make the bad luck go away a little by throwing

    salt over the shoulder and keeping something lucky around.

    If you stop the video at 54 seconds in you will discover that it is, in fact, hammer time.

    1:40 Gavin I was thinking the exact same thing. Also Dan I too called complete bullshit that that happens. Here we stand completely wrong.

    Taking that Dan is in The military, and that his hammer throw is on point, is he like their designated hitman?

    That is neat to see the shockwave going through the glass then seeing the cracks come.

    Good luck with bad luck Dan.

    I had a stab at the math, (won't bore you with method, don't worry)
    I gave a margin of 5-7 frames of shock-wave, at 120,000fps. I got a shock-wave lasting between 0.00004167-0.00005833 seconds.

    In nicer numbers, the shock-wave lasted between 42-58 microseconds, before the glass cracked. The average of that is 50 microseconds.

    Matrix Math Bitch!

    I have a feeling that if Gav and Dan are still making videos in 30 years, I'll still be watching.

    I wonder how often visual effects studios literally use Slow-Mo Guys to help figure out stuff. At the very least, I could see that becoming common for shattering glass, after so many such slow-mo videos.
