    I’ve always wondered how slow would it be if you record a slowmo video with a slow motion camera over and over what’s the slowest something can be, or is there no end on how slow you can make something

    • Stickman

      No, you would just be recording the monitor refresh rate.

    You guys should do the elephant toothpaste experiment in slow mo

  • Henry

    The balloon shot really shows how efficient these can be. Immediately, a large amount of the solution is in the animal’s body, so if they quickly somehow got the syringe out, it’s still gonna affect the animal.

    The function of the rubber ring on the needle is to block the hole to release the pressure, that is the only reason for having the hole on the side, unlike regular needles. when the needle pierce the skin of an animal the rubber unblocks the hole and the air pressure releases the liquid.
