(yeah i know that's raquel welch from the 60s)


That's not really plus-sized. This is plus-sized:

That's not even really plus sized, it's small brained... trying to wear pants two sizes too small will almost always lead to a disaster.

That looks like what I'd expect. The crack has an initiation point and spreads from there in a pattern.

Makes perfect sense it's start at the rim, the CD is spinning the fastest at the rim, and you've got a good chance of flaws there for stress concentration.

I wonder if it actually got up to 170600 FPS, (FPS? what's that in RPM?),and if so how long it had been spinning at that speed; or, did it fail in the acceleration to 170600 fps which was obviously the target speed not necessarily the attained speed.

The FPS is the framerate of the video.

Here's the full video of the spinning CD

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zs7x1Hu29Wc

They explain everything and try different FPS camera speeds. The spinning speed remains the same, 28.5k RPM (IIRC) because that's what it takes to shatter the CD.

Gunter was a good shot. Unfortunately, his horse wasn't adequately trained. He fired, and landed on his butt when his mount flinched from the report.
