3 videos to watch this weekend - 9 May

"Fashion victims" highlighted in a vending machine

A vending machine offering t-shirts for sale at only R26 saw plenty of people step up to make the most of the great offer. But before the clothing was delivered the machines displayed the people and the conditions under which they worked to drive the prices down. After the presentation, shoppers were asked if they would like to use the money to buy the t-shirt or make a donation. The initiative by Fashion Revolution hopes to change the attitudes especially of consumers in countries that buy most of the low cost fashion of the real cost of the clothes. The video was posted to mark the anniversary of the collapse of a sweat shop in Bangladesh that killed over 1 000 workers.

There is playlist posted each day highlighting a letter of the alphabet, so far you can watch the collection for animals, beauty, covers, dance, epic and this one with fails (that also includes the 2nd video to be posted to the platform way back in April 2005)

Homemade volcano, a leaf blower, a fire and a flue

Great things can happen when humans are afforded time and an opportunity to experiment, but there is no guarantee. Take the thinking by this young man who knew that fanning a fire would make it burn brighter, he decided to see how much brighter it would burn when he used a leaf blower. His mother was not impressed. [Warning strong language from Mom at the end]
