For all the benefits life on a boat can afford (horrible schedules, really hard work, fear of drowning, seasickness), it turns out there are also some downsides. And upsides. Then back downsides. It's not the most stable lifestyle, let's put it that way. Here are some fun and freaky moments of seemingly impossible physics thanks to that good ol' fixed camera.

Here are two machines, both capable of balancing themselves using the power of reaction wheels. First, it's kind of amazing that people do this every day without even thinking about it.

It's bold moves like these that convince people why women live longer than men. A shout-out to all the bosses who have told us "just do it it'll be fine" or "we've always done it like that" and made us climb backwards up a ladder balancing on piles of oily rags.

With this prank getting popular again, we've seen dads get out of this jam before. However, we've never seen someone counter this prank with such grace. This guy has to be some sort of wizard.
