Funny Prank

This is a very innovative practical joke that I found extremely funny. I guess the big question is: Is it fake? Entirely filmed with actors or did they actually manage to pull something like this off. In any case it’s bound to make you laugh. Enjoy…

6 Year Old Genius

This kid is unbelievable! He can play more than 200 songs on the piano from memory. He is also really sweet, adorable, and funny. The level of playing this boy has reached at such a young age is flabbergasting. Attaining this level, could easily take an adult years of practice and this child is still in kindergarten.

I would be quite intrigued to find out how he performs academically in later years. I wander it his genius extends to other topics other than music. The one thing that is certain is that we can expect a lot from Ethan. I’m definitely using “The tiger run away at the zoo” as my new ring tone!

How Chicks Hatch

This is another interesting video I found online that shows how chicks hatch. As a person I eat meet and to be honest the images shown in this video are going to haunt me for a long time. I find the whole process very disturbing and ungentle to say the least.

I was reading some of the YouTube comments and I was surprised even shocked to read that many people find this video highly amusing, entertaining and funny. At the same time I am sitting in my room thinking “How? How can anyone find this funny?” Just imagine we could be one the people that have casually eaten one these yellow fellows we see on the video.

That’s all for today, I will try to make the next video a truly funny one.

Jam Jar Jet

Hello, this is my first video on the blog! It is a video on how to make a pulse jet engine from a jam jar. It looks extremely easy and can more or less be made with house hold materials. I watched other similar videos on YouTube and they don’t seem to use that copper piece of piping. I will probably try this soon and hopefully post some pictures or a video.

The problem with the jars used in this project is that they tend to crack ether immediately or after a few uses. It would probably be interesting to make a stronger version out of metal. I guess the next step from there is to interest some sort of fuel and air injectors to make it run continually. And there you have it a small pulse jet engine.

This video was inspired by the article written by William Gurstelle in MAKE magazine vol.5 on page 102. There really are some incredible projects in the magazine let alone the great videos released online.

As a word of caution though, this project is very dangerous and must not be attempted by children with out parent supervision. Also, if you try it, try it outdoors, wear safety goggles and expect the jar to eventually explode. Have fun stay safe.

Hello World!

Hello and welcome to Easy Subjugation. This website is dedicated to interesting media I come across on the internet and my thoughts and opinions about it. I plan to update this site as often as possible bringing new and fresh food for thought.

As a person I am intrigued by many things I find on the net. I am particularly interested in anything to do with Japan, Robotics, Music and Science. I am actually a robotics engineer so hopefully I can upload some interesting stories about that. My love affair with Japan started many years ago when I discovered anime. I have been a collector ever since, and boy, is it piling up! I am a terrible musician (ears bleeding… can’t take pain any longer) but that makes me so much more appreciative of the skill of some people out there.

So, I guess 12 Aug. 07 is the birthday of my website. (Happy birthday Easy Subjugation!) I’m actually having so many ideas about it that I can’t wait to get it going properly. I any case, I really want to bring interesting and exiting media to everyone.

Happy Media Consumption
