AER Throw Your GoPro:
What's the 44 Club? Well it all started in the outro of this video where we wondered if anyone was still watching the video at that point, and to comment 44 (Scott's fave number) if they were. Brett then said 44 Club get on board and the rest is history. The 44Club is the official How Ridiculous fan club made up of people who love our videos and watch them right to the very end. We've even got 44 Club merch now! So yeh, that's the story. Pretty random but good fun at the same time.
We are passionate about seeing children released from poverty and we would love you to consider sponsoring a child with Compassion. We visited our sponsor children in the Philippines and were blown away by the difference that child sponsorship can make. To find out more about sponsoring a child right now, check out:
What Slow Mo Camera Do We Use? We've got the The Chronos 1.4 which shoots 1500fps at 720p. Check it out here

Fun fact: the bowling ball is experiencing gravitational acceleration from the time it leaves the mortar until it hits the ground, not just from the apex to the ground.

Noticed that Rexy and the anvil achieved a similar apogee and free fell striking the ground almost at the same time. Given that they are not the same weight, I wonder if astronaut David Scott could help on this one?

There’s no such thing as a hoofer. It’s heifer, a female cow. You’ve got it confused with hoofer because you can’t speak English.

Hey boys, love your channel and its content.
How about dropping the 200kg atlas ball from the 45m tower onto an airbag, set up a electronic trigger just above the air bag so as the atlas ball passes through it about 2m above the air bag.???

No one knows until they get a face full of airbag how hard those things can hit. I took mine Sept. 2019 and the police thought I was drunk because I was so bewildered when they arrived. Most people end up with a broken nose and silk friction burns all over their face.

Increadible! I got a height of about 54 meters for the bowling ball when accounting for the drag (air resistance). Sorry if being a buzzkill. Love this channel!
I'll include the calculations further down for the nerds to prove me wrong. Disclaimer: I'm a student in molecular science, not pure physics.

The two forces acting on the ball is gravity and air resistance:
Fg = mg
Fdrag = -(1/2) C * p * A * v^2
Fnet = Fg + Fdrag = mg - (1/2) C * p * A * v^2
m is the mass of the bowling ball (~3.629 kg), g is earths gravity acceleration constant 9.82 m/s^2, C = Drag coefficient (relating to the percentage of area exposed to the resisting wind) 0.5 for a sphere, p = air density 1.29 kg/m^3, A = sphere area = 4pi * r^2 (r is the radius ~10 cm = 0.1 m was my estimation), v is the velocity = g*t.
Convert the force to acceleration by dividing both terms with the mass of the bowling ball:
a = mg/m - (1/2)/m * C * p * 4pi r^2 * v^2 = g - (1/2) /m * C * p * 4pi r^2 * (g*t)^2
integrate with respect to time to get the velocity (corresponding to the primitive function:
v = gt - (1/2)/m * C * p *4pi r^2 * g^2 t^3/3
integrate again with bounderies t0= 0 s to t=3.92 s to get the height:
S = gt^2/2 - (1/2)/m * C * p *4pi r^2 *g^2 * t^4/(4*3)
Insert g= 9.82, C = 0.5, m = mass of the ball in kg, p = 1.29, r = radius of the ball in meters and t = 3.92 :
S~ 54 m
