Magnetic Bucky Balls In a Blender Create One Terrifying Light Show

It didn't take long for those "Will it Blend?" videos to get long in the tooth. After all, you can only watch so many smartphones being torn to shreds before the novelty wears off.

But to celebrate the birth of his 40th grandkid, Tom Dickson tosses a mountain of magnetic Buckyballs into the blades and the results are as spectacular as they are incredibly dangerous to try at home. Seriously, don't try this at home.

Some people were upset about those neodymium magnetic ball sets being banned, but after seeing this video, maybe it's a good thing that YouTube copycats won't be able to get their hands on them anymore. [YouTube via Laughing Squid]
