Mid-air Paintball Collisions in Slow Mo – The Slow Mo Guys

Watching two very fast moving objects smack together at high speeds is very satisfying to watch. That’s the main reason Gav and Dan made this video.
Don’t try without goggles and that. Be safe. Be slow.

    This channel is perfect.
    Quality content, no drama, EXTREMELY sympathetic and natural persons, no clickbait or other soulless shit like that, nothing acted… just good ole Youtube as it used to be. Why can’t all of Youtube be like this, i would be much less depressive 😀

    Other awesome channels like that would be Cinemassacre, Vsauce and some more i’m not remembering rn, but sadly there is not as many of them as there is cancerous people on this platform.

    How long would it take you to paint the fence with a paintball gun? Well…
    Let’s assume that you are as efficient with a paintball gun as you would be if you were painting with a brush. Normally, you’d be looking at a Gallon covering 400 square feet, roughly speaking. The fence looks to be about… six feet high, and twenty feet long on each side, and I’m assuming your fence covers three sides of the garden, so that’d be… 360 square feet. We’ll call it four hundred for easy math.
    A quick google search suggests that a paintball has around 2.5 mL of paint in it. So to make up the gallon of paint needed to paint the fence, it would take… around 1800 paintballs. It looks like you can fire around five paintballs a second, and a hopper typically holds around 200 paintballs, so that’s six minutes of continuous fire with eight reloads (plus the original full hopper to make nine full hoppers). I honestly have no idea how long it would take to reload a hopper, I’m guessing no more than a minute.

    So, in theory, you could do it in under half an hour. If I did the math right, and guessed the associated numbers right. Which I quite possibly fucked up. Do a video about it, and prove whether or not I’m right!

    Hey to remove a air tank from a paint ball marker. You have to turn it 3/4 then shoot. Then turn and shoot till the gun stops shooting
