    Strange Stuff Videos

    Stumble across something unusual or interesting you want to share? Post it here, no rules or themes other than "Don't see that every day". Comments from the peanut gallery always welcome.
    Here is my first submission and I don't even know what it is:

    Prototype power plant for Twilights TW conversion?

    Cool idea to use that little Fairbanks "Z" engine as a pony motor for that big vertical!

    EDIT: Maybe not a Fairbanks Moris Z??

    Apparently there is a whole subculture of squirrel catapulting by folks with too much time and rodents on their hands. This was the gentlest of several videos I saw. Personally I just buy more bird seed.

    I agree with mhomadness (I think?). Blackstart. A smaller engine is used to start a larger engine that can't start itself. Lot's of big stationary diesel engines use compressed air or grid power to spin them up fast enough to build up enough heat for combustion. Blackstart refers to a power generating facility that's gone "black" due to a significant failure.

    Magnetic putty reminds me of the old Steve McQueen movie "The Blob".
