World's fastest electric motorcycle:

Description from video: "See what 990 cells can do! Last run on March 31st 2007 at Firebird speedway in AZ. This is the fastest and quickest 1/4 mile run of _any_ electric vehicle on the planet! All 60 foot times were less than 1.19 seconds. Impressed? Check out for more information on electric drag racing, and for more on this bike."

Decomposition of a baby pig

THIS IS GROSS! But it is also really interesting if you don't mind gross stuff.

Description from the video: Jerry Payne's made this film in the mid 1960s as part of his graduate work at Clemson University. Payne writes, My study was the first "detailed" study of succession in animal decomposition and the first with the pig as the model. The significance of the pig is that it closely approximates the human body (skin, body hair, size etc.) so the data generated could be used in modern forensic science to approximate the time of human deaths. At that time it was simply not possibly (moral/ethical/legal concerns) to perform decompositon studies with human corpses, I know because I tried and was denied. Even so there were many instances where some concerned person buried my research pigs.
