Gyroscopes

I over heard about Gyroscopes this evening and thought they were quite interesting.
I did not know what they were until I did a little internet research, pretty cool!
especially bicycles :)

Only the greatest toy in the world - next to Slinky.

I love slinky's!! (Off track) Especially when I was a kid I used to collect them and whenever I would go into a toy store with my mom I would always ask for one. Especially the metal slinky's, not the color plastic ones. The metal ones were my favorite! Thanks for the videos I enjoyed those, and especially the shuttle video.
Off track for a moment, loved learning about Nasa and the past Apollo missions.
Do they even sell slinky's anymore?? It was quite interesting how they put those cd players together
wish the video could have kept going on further to watch the rest of it!

Extra Long Slinky : $8 +(~10 shipping US) : http://www.arborsci.com/detail.aspx?ID=33

Yeah, the plastic ones are crap - they don't have enough weight for them to really go on their own. It was too much work to get them started and going.

Then there's the human slinky... enough creepiness to make any kid wet his pants:

A human slinky??? Interesting moves!
