So the aluminum ball challenge has filled my YouTube feed, and I'll be honest, it's quite satisfying to watch. Taking a roll of matte, crinkled aluminum and polishing it into a mirrored sphere is shockingly zen to watch. I would do it myself, but I'm not about to waste a roll of foil on some web shenanigans.

Meet Cody from Cody's Lab. He's an amateur scientist and one heck of a smart young man. He makes really interesting science video for us nerds, but in a much different way than anyone else. He apparently had a gold bar laying around, so he rolled it into foil and started pounding away. As much as I want to judge him for the Harbor Freight anvil, I can't. This was pretty neat. Especially since it somehow became two balls in one. Weird.
