    Note: Yes. The use of the term "HARDCORE" in the title is supposed to be funny. I'm self aware.

                                          What's fascinating to me (not more than the main topic itself of course), is how the delay in the in the gun after the 2nd trigger felt so long compared the distance it traveled, it reached the end just before the bang. and how the sound it made. very very cool.


                                          and it felt longer here 2:04

                                                  Did anyone else notice the larger shards of ejecta *perfectly* reflecting everything around it?- Like pausing at the correct moment, you can see the flippin' camera in a tiny shard flying off.
                                                  That may be the BEST visual representation of the speed of light that's ever been caught on camera. Edit: 6:16, watch the lower-center shard, then the lower-right, rotating cleanly.. It's beautiful.

It also would have been cheaper than destroying a mirror.
