So watching something in slow motion can really make a difference to the way you see it. A show named Time Warp films things with high speed cameras and then slow it down so you can actually see what’s happening. It’s really interesting!
For example, getting shot with a tazer in the back doesn’t look as epic if it’s not in slow motion! You can’t really see and process what’s happening until you see it in slow motion. A man that was really brave on the show agreed to get shot in the back with a tazer so we could see the effect… and it looked really painful! Now I know not to resist arrest from an officer at least!
Another good example of something that was able to be processed better in slow motion was a pole vault over a 12 foot pole. I didn’t know there was so much work in pole vaulting! Like when the professional pole vaulter converted the energy from her run into the pole to be able to jump over her goal! That fascinated me… although it looked very hard! There’re many other things that I learned from watching high speed events in slow motion but my favorite was what happens to a man’s muscles when he uses a jackhammer! His muscles were like waves in an ocean all wiggling around and everything. It made me laugh… a really ripped guy’s muscles moving like waves in an ocean 🙂
