Yet another internet meme is making its rounds. People are starting to take it to the next step, and now it’s popping up IRL in some places
A rather informative, interesting, and just plain badass video about the endurance testing of flasks designed to transport nuclear waste. This is "Operation Smash Hit", as conducted by the UK in 1984. This is what happens when a locomotive traveling at 100mph is run into a very heavy stationary object.
This is another video of tests conducted by the Sandia National Laboratories in the US, and is equally as badass. Where else are you going to get the excuse to strap some rocket engines onto a diesel locomotive and then crash it?
These guys are known for their original video "Sales Guy vs. Web Dude", which is an exceptional piece of IT-related satire. As is typically the trend with sequels, the original is better, but that’s not to say that this one isn’t worth watching.
