    High speed stuff. Slow.

    Check out this site, it's got all this stuff, filmed on some camera, and played back really slow. Some things are quite cool. The hard drive seek one.

    There's some pretty neat slow-mo kung fu board breaking here if you're interested: http://www.kungfuscience.org/site.asp

    that really is a cool site. It's funny watching the pressure wave ripple across the unfortunate volunteer's belly when he gets twatted in the stomach

    The hard drive is pretty mental too. I guess we've all ripped open dead HD's to see what they look like, but I'd never appreciated how insanely fast the heads can move.

    The slow mo of the paintball shattering also makes me realise why it hurts so much when you get shot by one

    in this context, I guess it means 'struck' or 'punched'.


    However, we also sometimes use it in a computing context to mean reformatting or deleting

    e.g.

    "That PC is so full of spyware that I think it would be best to twat it"

    We don't have that slang here. It's just England.

    ummmm, if you Google, define:twat, you get a somewhat different meaning (which is what I thought it was BTW)
    However "twatting" returns no definitions

    Could we BE any further away from the original message?

    oh yeah, the literal meaning is a bit rude, but it gets used colloquially over here to mean other things

    I thought we were on high-speed twatting? Seems perfectly relevant to me. And while we're on visuals, this optical illusion site is worth checking out if you haven't already:
