We’ve been airing new pilots on Friday nights, and we want to hear what you think! Leave comments and let us know, is it a hit?
On Don’t Try This At Home, stand-up comedian Michael Kosta explains the scientific concepts behind outrageous – and dangerous – viral videos.
Tonight, Kosta tackles skateboarders on fire, yoga ball wrestling with sumo fighters and exploding beer cans. But the most painful – and most basic – science lesson comes at the expense of a young daredevil and his failed homemade zipline.
As Kosta explains, Newton’s Law tells us that for every action, there’s an equal and opposite reaction. The more mass the object has, the larger the reactionary force. Unfortunately, nobody passed on Mr. Newton’s wise words to the victim of tonight’s video, who attempts to defy gravity on a homemade zipline. The result – a faceplant into the dirt.
In the words of Kosta, “Gravity, you’re a cold mistress.”
Catch Don’t Try This At Home tonight at 10:30P. And be sure to come back and tell us what you think! If you like it, we just may turn this into our next new series!
