Watch a Watermelon Explode in Slow Motion

Last week a Korean video made the rounds on the interwebs that showed what happens to a watermelon when it's wrapped with 500 rubber bands. (Spoiler alert: It blows up. Awesomely.)

This morning there's a new video that shows the whole messy thing in high-def slow-motion, brought to us by the adorable, monogrammed-lab-coat-clad Slo Mo Guys (previously responsible for such gems as Popping Popcorn in Slow Motion and Dan Chews a Biscuit at 1000fps).

Kinda makes you want to eat a ripe, juicy melon, doesn't it? And we know just what to make with the leftovers: We've been dying for an excuse to try this summery watermelon salad from local food blogger (and former SFoodie contributor) Hedonia. [via BonApp]

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
