Someone needs to make an animated gif of Kelly getting hit in the face with a snowball.
Also, is the beer you stabbed at Leinie's? That would make sense, as it is from the Chippewa Valley of Wisconsin.
I believe Matt was going to make that happen, though I'm not sure how soon he can get to it.
No photo of the glove? Drat!
(Who sez folks don't know how to have fun up here in the north woods? *g*)
there are photos of the glove. Elyse took some.
The highspeed video of Neil emptying out the box o' bees is truly amazing. Being able to actually see bees beat their wings and hover in place is stunning.
and how they flip right-side up after they fall out upside down....
The videos I've seen of beekeepers populating a new hive with bees. Most of them recommend that you place the opening on top of the hive, in the gap made by removing some of the slotted frames. (You can see the gap in the video) They also suggest that you slam the Cage Full o' Bees on top of the overall hive frame to "shake out" any stragglers.
Tapping the Cage I can see. Banging it? Not so much.
Btw, did you know bee suppliers can MAIL those containers of bees? Suppliers recommend that you contact your local Post Office to warn them ahead of time that they're going to be receiving a package that is BUZZING LOUDLY.
Nothing like a little slow-motion to start your day.
Really enjoyed these, and I like to imagine the conversation that preceded the videos:
Kyle: That slow motion guy is coming to shoot something awesome outside.
Kyle: We could totally get hit in the face in with snowballs...in slow motion.
DIll: In the face?
Kyle: We could call it...SNOW motion!
Dill: In the face?
Kyle: For SCIENCE!
Dill: I have a knife I bought from a pirate?
Kyle: Let's stab a beer with it!
Kelly: Isn't that a waste of good beer?
Dill: It doesn't have to be good beer.
Kyle: For SCIENCE!
It was kind of like that. Except I said "we should hit Dill in the face with a snowball" and Dill said "I don't think so" so I went first and Dill realized HOW AWESOME SCIENCE WAS. Or something like that. (And I said "Can I use your knife?" to which Dill said "I bought this knife from a pirate! At a ren faire!"
but apart from that, your dialogue is pretty much spot on.
The contrast between your stalwart determination and your happy Frog Hat while you get hit in the face is truly wonderful.
I was unaware of just how much love the frog hat was going to get. Of course, I fell in love with it when I saw it at the truck stop. It just means the Internet has excellent taste, as do I.

I'm impressed by people not jerking their heads at all when getting hit by snowballs! Of course, it's not a total surprise.
I swear, that zombie has better knitwear than I ever will.
There are those who will say that you were just using science as an excuse to see how cool it would look to hit people in the head with snowballs and stab a knife into a can of beer, in slow motion. I, of course, can see the scientific value in these important experiments. Science is good!
