How stuff works

I have a fascination with how ordinary things are made. I used to wonder how the deodorant companies packed all that smelly stuff into a can. Or in fact how any aerosols worked.

Then Abraham Piper of 22 words posted links to these 22 videos of stuff being made.

Now, though I’d never wondered, I know how globes are made. If you watch this video you will too.

Here’s how roll-on deodorant works.

And some of my other favourites.

And most importantly, how bacon is made.

And a musical interlude.

There goes half an hour of your time.
