Sailor Cycle / Crushing Weight

Running Time: 5:55

PatrickD was invited to Tsubasacon 2005 as a guest. Determined to entertain West Virginians with a new experiment, he brought a "Sailor Moon Cycle" which had been donated. It was made out of brittle plastic material and almost certain to shatter into many sharp pieces.

Upon arriving at the convention, Patrick discovered a theater next door with a large weight for the stage rigging. Borrowing one, he used that as the instrument of destruction. The experiment was conducted in stages. First, the weight was placed on the toy and then forced downward. No damage happened, so the toy was placed on the floor and the weight was dropped from a low elevation. That bent a wheel, but didn't do much damage. From knee height, the toy was clearly broken. From waist height, the toy was completely shattered into many pieces.
