OMG I'd forgotten those songs! They make me want to rip the ears right off my head... ;)

Great video, you are very thoroughgoing with your research. Kudos and thanks... :mrgreen:

If I'm really bored during the summer I may make a bonus Dodoid video where I hang an Octane/Octane skins with nothing in them by a rope or something and then run a demo to see if it really does "swing with performance".

If it is able to accelerate its immense mass rapidly in either direction with only a 260w power input (typical of Octane, regardless of CPU/GFX load), it is possible infinite electricity could be generated by running a mechanism and generator off of the Octane's swing. Larger scale power plants making use of Origins are also conceivable, and would be able to store power with the supercomputers acting as pendulums that could be re-engaged with generators to harvest kinetic energy at any time.

This is an almost Turbo Encabulator worthy concept! :lol:

Excellent as usual young chap, and somewhat slower narrative I think..

As for the elephant in the corner, I may as well go ahead..

Can one asked, did you get yourself roughed up by those SCO scoundrels?

I was fiddling with a plastic water bottle while editing video. Suction from the bottle (which I had been squeezing and then allowing to expand) caused it to stick to my face, which I allowed it to do, and create a (strangely completely painless) bruise. Didn't even notice until I went to film.

BILL NYE THE SCIENCE GUY!

Watch what happens when I put this suction on my skin!

*sound effect*

Now, the blood comes up through my skin because of a PRESSURE DIFFERENCE (text appears on screen)

Even once I take the suction away, the blood stays there!
