Have You Seen This? Spintop snipers

Posted April 12

TOPPINGTON — So I've been trying to think about what I would say about this video. I could make some lame joke like, "This video will spin your head like a top," but I have too much respect for all of you.

I could go on about how many dreams of being an expert top spinner were dashed after that unfortunate hippo accident back in '88, but I don't need your sympathy.

I could go into detail about how incredibly hard this skill is with a fancy physics lesson with a little calculus sprinkled in, but I'm fairly lazy and not that smart.

What I'm going to do instead is inform you that this video is a lot of fun and these guys are pretty phenomenal. Watching them work is hypnotizing and makes me hate hippos even more. Curse you hippopotamus amphibius. You may have won the day, but you haven't won the war.

Anyway, enjoy the video, I know I did.
