Grace Hopper was a famous American Navy officer and computer scientist who passed away in 1992. This vintage footage of her explaining nanoseconds in physical terms just went viral this weekend, and is featured on GeeksAreSexy and VideoSift

Hopper explains to a class room how a nanosecond is a billionth of a second, a number to small to really grasp. So she expressed a nanosecond with a string of wire, just under a foot to be exact. That’s how far electricity can travel in a nanosecond. To compare, she also shows what a microsecond looks like physically–a wire nine hundred and eighty-four feet long.

Every now and then, a new UFO themed video surfaces. This latest one is only a week old, and already has over two million views. The video apparently features amateur footage of a UFO in New Mexico while the cameraman drives down the highway. As usual, the believers shout conspiracy while the skeptics say it’s simply a camera trick or CGI.

The icy roads of Russia are a popular place for terrifying and horrible car accidents. In the Petushki district on highway M-7, a Nissan SUV lost control and bumped into a small truck next to it. That caused the Nissan to speed directly into the opposite lane of traffic where it was literally crushed by a speeding semi truck. The entire scene was caught on dash camera.

The pranksters at  devised their more horrible and hilarious prank yet. After a person boarded an elevator, two pallbearers wheeled in a coffin, only to step out just as the doors close. The unknowing passengers were already creeped out being stuck with a coffin in the elevator, but they really freaked out when the ‘corpse’ fell out.
