^^ Yeah. I liked the swing episode!! I didn't think it was that difficult to make the swing go 360 degrees, but I found out it was.
More new episode tonight!!
In tonight's episode, Tory, Kari, and Grant tried to see if cell phones would really disrupt the plane's ability to fly, like interfering with the instruments, or cockpit communications, etc.
Meanwhile, Adam and Jamie checked out the myth that if filled with hellium, normal plain raft would fly (!!??)
They quickly found out, by simply filling a raft with hellium, that it doesn't
They went on and caliculated how much hellium it needed to lift the raft, with one human on it, and it came out some humongus amount, like enough to fill small zeppelin (which makes sense, actually.)
Undounted, they created a raft, a pontoon actually, to hold that much hellium, out of PVC plastics.
Imagine extra extra long (like 1000's of feet long) clear garbage bags filled with hellium, sealed closed with sillicon, and put them together with duct tapes!!
Well, something similar to that, and they made this humongus PVC plastic bag pontoons, and filled with a truck-load of hellium, and put Adam on it.
It did float, but pontoon fell arart, and Adam fell through the seam, ended in a safety net that's hanging from the pontoon, and he looked like a bear caught in a net trap (Adam put on black wet-suit/swap-suit combination outfit for the occasion just because he thought that would look "cool") or something!! THAT was a funny scene!!
I think Adam was embarassed, tho he did not say that.
The whole pontoon fell apart at seams, and the experiment was busted!!!
Meantime, Tory and the gang tested the disruption by cellphones to airplane communication/instruments on the ground, because by U.S. LAW you CAN NOT operate cell phones on the plane while flying, even for the experiment, even on the private plane.
So, they tested inside the private jet, idling on the ground, and they found no quantifiable disruptions whatsever.
But, they concluded that the Law is probably siding on the safety side, just in case.... (Or, maybe siding with some lobbying group sent by those airline "seat-phone" companies???
Anyway, that was a good episode!!
