Detailed Video Shows What Happens When Taser Hits Your Skin

Watch the taser work on slow motion and see what happens when it hits the skin!

You’ve seen them in the news, you’ve watched hero cops use it to stop bad guys. But what really happens when you get tasered?

There has been a lot of controversy about this weapon and we’ve even heard of a cop who actually accidentally killed someone just because he thought that a gun was a taser, but more than knowing how to use it, seeing how it really makes an impact on human skin really reveals a lot about this weapon.

Slow Mo Guys went to Arizona to capture on video what really happens when a taser hits the skin in slow motion. And we mean really slow motion at 28,000 fps!

It may seem just like a normal weapon when you see it fired, but on slow motion, it becomes a whole different weapon when pieces of “confetti” scatter as the taser is fired and aimed on a man’s back.

Just a bit of a warning: If you are easily grossed out, you may want to take a deep breath at the second half of the video. It will totally haunt your dreams!

French researchers from the French National Research Center who discovered the virus stated that they are planning to reanimate it in order to learn more about it and determine whether it is pathogenic to humans or animals.

Known as the Mollivirus sibericum, it is a giant virus (0.6 microns long) with more than 500 genes.

Elon Musk Reveals Plan to Nuke Mars to Make it Habitable for Humans

Elon Musk seriously proposed that we should nuke Mars.

By

Scientists have been studying the atmosphere in Mars and have been formulating plans to make the planet inhabitable. Why? Do we have to live somewhere else because the world is getting too crowded? Will an asteroid collide with Earth and instantly kill us all?

Stephen Hawking, one of the world’s leading theoretical physicist, told ABC news that the planet Earth will be facing imminent destruction in the next 1,000 or 10,000 years. The cosmologist suggests that by then, we should have moved out into space, into other planets or stars to avoid total annihilation.

“This is not a prophesy of doom, but a wake-up call,” he said. “There is a possibility that the human race could go extinct, but it is not inevitable,” Hawking added. ...
