The ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ Trailer Is Even Better In LEGO 

DC’s heroes — particularly Batman — were the ones that got the big-screen treatment in this weekend’s box office winner, The LEGO Movie, but that isn’t stopping fans from bringing a few Marvel movie characters to life, too.

The team of Antonio and Andrea Toscano have lovingly recreated the first trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier completely in LEGO bricks and minifigures, and it’s pretty doggone fantastic.


Now compare it to the original trailer.

LEGOs rock!

Amy Johnson, English aviator 1903-1941


One of the first women to gain a pilot’s license, Johnson won fame when she flew solo from Britain to Australia in 1930. Her dangerous flight took 17 days. Later she flew solo to India and Japan and became the first woman to fly across the Atlantic East to West, she volunteered to fly for The Women’s Auxiliary Air Force in WW2, but her plane was shot down over the River Thames and she was killed.

Science behind flipping tires by endowdly

endosbop:

Why Tires Flips Are Awesome

Without getting into the science too much, I’ll try to briefly explain how flipping a tire really works.

Why are tires a unique workout tool?

It comes down to two things you are hard pressed to find in other work out tools: (1) flipping a tire completely uses multiple muscle groups from both the upper and lower body; (2) the force required to move the tire reduces as you lift it. This is important because the proper technique for lifting a tire is a three stage lift. The first stage is a deadlift. The second stage is a hang power clean. The third stage is a simple shove, akin to a benchpress. The resistance drops through each stage, which is good! You can deadlift more than you clean, and you can clean more than you can push. Make sense? Now does anyone know of any equipment that does the same thing? How about one that you can also hit repeatedly with a sledgehammer? Or one you can also use as a jump box? Didn’t think so.

So let me explain how the tire can accomplish being awesome as described above: (1) tires are made of a very resistant material that can be abused and stored anywhere; (2) old used tires are cheaper than getting specialty made equipment; (3) the physics of a tires shape contribute to all this.

Let’s explore all that physics.

WARNING! It’s about to get nerdy!
