    a camera, a bucket, a foam ball, some food coloring, some elbowgrease and a couple of handsome nerds. This is how magic is made. I get so mezmerized that I nearly forget to actually like the video. ♥

    This is amazing when I first looked at it I was puzzled . It looks like the waters leaving the ball and spiraling of and not going tangential which would imply it still has a centripetal force acting on it which of course is not true. Its still going tangential but it looks like its spiraling.

    Mount the ball on a drill, soak it in kerosine and spin it while it's burning. It would look exactly like a sun with a galaxy spinning out from it.
    Edit: And then he pulled out a gas can at the end. Great minds...
