No way that is real, it would either kill you or at least break your spine in no less than 3 parts. And the whole structure just seems wrong, not strong enough.

It's a hoax, but a brilliant one.

We believe that even the trickiest challenges confronting mankind can be diverted via human centrifugalization. Spinning people around at a sufficiently high G-Force will solve every problem. Our confidential field-studies and covert experiments have confirmed: To the best of our knowledge, everything is possible. And if it is not, what the Hell, we try it anyway.

Join the universe of ICR
and we will take you for a ride...

P.S. "The Alliance of Trustworthy Scientists" is not a real organization (other than for purpose of promoting this film...also note: scientists played by actors).

The two blocks are the same color. If you don't believe it, put your finger across the junction.

Make sure to entirely cover both the shadow and the highlight. try 2 fingers.

Or just check it in photoshop. Believe it or not it IS the same color.

He just reduced the pool of possible partners in his life. He's going to find it difficult to get laid when they see that.
