    If a car goes fast enough it's like the wheel stops moving, same thing except helicopters don't rotate fast enough for regular eyesight

    Math = Mental Abuse to Humans! I would have known something was fishy here. Another thing people believe is stopped planes, like stuck between dimensions or something like that... (psst that's wind shear, the plane is literally held in place, happens a lot to pilots)

  • James Huffaker

    Cool technique, but doesn't seem very useful. Maybe you could do this with a food processor and show the food seemingly being processed without the blade moving? That might be cool.

    Nice video bro. I can't believe how stupid people are nowadays. We'll leave it at the pour education level of Americans. Thank American government for lowering it to a 3ed world status so you can control the masses and leave them in the dark. Keep up the good work on the ignorant. Someone has to.
