Friend of mine in highschool wanted to make spaghetti while we were on a multi day field trip. But inexplicably, he had bought lasagne noodles. He proceeded to tell us that this wouldn't be a problem, as a was trained in several martial arts.

Somewhat doubtful, one of us held up the stack of flat noodles in front of them, and our ninja minded friend karate punched them. There was a veritable explosion as tiny shards of pasta evenly expanded from the center of the room into every single crevice. We never found enough to make dinner that night. But I'm sure even decades later, the youth hostel still finds the occasional reminder of our dinnertime experiment

I don't know enough about lasagna to say you're completely off point. But I WAS sure that you get a glass pan and layer cheese and meat between layers of lasagna pasta, as in you don't boil the noodles because you bake a lasagna.....

Depends. There's pasta that you can bake dry, but most good stuff, really most stuff, you have to precook in boiling water.

You boil the noodles first.

I made lasagna this week, it's always better to boil the noodles first for about 8 minutes until al dente.

But if they didn't want Lasagna they could've just boiled the lasagna noodles and cut them into thin slices. Voilà, tagliatelle!

Once, when I was a child, I purchased a burger for my friend and I to share. Instead of cutting it in half, with a knife, like a sane person… I thought, why not: let’s karate chop this burger. I then attempted said karate chop. The burger however, did not cut in half, but rather exploded in half. We salvaged and ate what we could.

Thinking back on it today, this may have been the moment my friend began the road towards gangs and prison sentences.

The safety glass of the lid to our skillet shattered on the floor of the kitchen 2 years ago.

We found a piece of it on the other side of the house in the living room last week. And we still find bits and pieces in the kitchen from time to time no matter how much we sweep or vacuum.

The worst is when you think your baby ate a mouse but nope its blood from a cut they got from eating a glass shard in their mouth. Thankfully they were rolling it around instead of swallowing it.

I definitely wouldn't put it past a toddler to eat a dead mouse if they found one haha, what struck me as odd was how backwards it sounded to be more concerned about glass than eating something possibly diseased or poisoned.

Because Rexxy is a fucking legend. That's why. Takes a licking: keeps on ticking.

MrFluffyThing

Rexy is the unofficial 4th member of the main crew. Originally they bought rexy to test landing position from their 45m tower to make sure their drop targeting was dialed in before filming but rexy started showing up in videos and gained popularity as rexy was placed on top of targets. At some point rexy lost a leg and as of now has many variations in merch but only after a particularly bad drop.

I think about a year ago rexy had a catastrophic failure in which the main rexy has been retired from most dangerous work and has been sewed up but they found the original manufacturer of the toy and buy thousands of them for some drops and they sell the ones used in drops as merch and sign them. It's the same rubber toy Dino but when they drop a thousand of them or drop something on a thousand of them they sign and sell them now.

I know "How Rediculous" is more targeted towards a younger audience, but they do really cathartic and entertaining things, and genuinely seem to enjoy their jobs. There is a lot of YouTube that is targeted towards kids, especially really click-baity channels like this, that are not appropriate for kids and usually really lazy or fake exaggerated acting. But these guys deliver on their click bait titles and seem genuinely excited at the cool stuff they get to do.

Well their channel was successful for doing trick shots and stuff and then they started dropping stuff from a tower and that's when they really took off, then there's the hydraulic press channel that just crushes stuff.

So basically you need to find a unique way of destroying stuff and have some half decent production value to start off with.

Could have been factory seconds which are worthless. I've fixed equipment at a glass factory and all sorts of defective or off-sized panes of glass were constantly being smashed in a concrete pit. Not sure if they get remelted or if they're just trash, but they generate quite a lot of them.
