Fire Tricks – Video of the week

Everyone for this weeks Video of the week I chose a video of something Matt and I have talk about doing and maybe making a video our self

My favourite trick in this video would have to be the first trick making the flame of the lighter a lot bigger then when you get the lighter the first time because how many time would you use a lighter and the flame be too small then you want it to be at least with this trick you will be able to make the flame to the size of your desire and take it back to the size of the flame when you first got because it was to big to use.

How cool is the third trick using three match sticks tying tin foil around the top of the three matches using a lighter on the tin foil and making it turn into a little rocket. If Matt and I were to make a video using some of these tricks or some of our own this would have to be one i would like to try and so you how we did it.

Another trick I have always wanted to do is light a tealight candle and put on a plate with some liquid on the plate and putting a glass over the top of the candle and getting the liquid up the glass from the plate. The reason it does that is because the oxygen gets taking away from the candle and the liquid go up the the glass because the candle is trying to get some oxygen.

What was your favourite trick and do you think you would try any of these tricks and empress some of your family or friends or just save as a party trick to show what you can do.

Until next time

Cricket Classic catches- Video of the week

Everyone for this weeks video of the week I choose something Matt and I have talked about to do our self maybe not to this extreme but something similar

My favourite catch and one I would like to attempt is the first with him diving to his right and getting it one handed it is probably one of the hardest catches to attempt and make it’s because it can fall short and hit the ground or when you take the catch and come back down on you arm it can fall out of you hand but you can also injure your shoulder if you don’t fall properly on to the ground from taking the catch.

The catch I like is the guy jumping to get it and palming it down to the other guy and him having to dive to get the ball

My favourite ever classic catch came in last year BBL from the Adelaide strikers I really enjoyed it because of how much effort Ben Laughlin had to do when running to get the catch but also make sure he doesn’t fall over the Boundary rope and also Jake Weatherald backing him up by also running in and trying to stop a boundary in Ben wasn’t able to get catch and drop it.

but how hard must of that been for Ben to make the catch and throw it back 30 mitres to the running Weatherald to slow down and help his teammate with the catch and help his team.

thanks for reading and if you would like to see Matt and I attempt some of these or do some of our own I would like to hear from you

until next time

Supercars crashes – video of the week

Everyone for this week video of the week I thought after I did my supercars greatest finishes post I would find a video that i said about in the post

I thought with my post talking about the Greatest finishes there were probably going to be some with crashes videos as well so I found this video from 2014 with top 30 V8 Supercar crashes of the last decade.

My favourite crash would have to number three from 2010 with half the field it was also the last race of the season and it could of been anybodies race i remember watching this race and it was dry leading up to the crash but there was a massive downpour of rain and most of the driver were on dry tyres and Jamie Whincup said to his engineer just before the crash that we should be on wet tyres with how wet it is out here. you see the the first three cars go into the fence and those three were battling for the championship for that year.

My second favourite crash would have to be the number 1 crash from 2010 with Fabian Coulthard rolling his car at the chase at Bathurst his tyres were still cold and he was trying to warming them up but he came just off line at the chase and rolled his car but you can see you string these cars are with him getting of his car and walking the video of the full crash is here.

I would like to hear what you favourite crash is and if it wasn’t in the video what was you you favourite crash

Until next time

World Cup Highlights – Video of the Week

Everyone with the World cup going on at the moment I thought I would do some Highlights of the World cup from Australia’s, Portugal’s and Argentina’s match so far

If you have been watching the world cup how do you think its going and if your country made it are you happy with how they are going or would you like to see them be playing better then what they are playing like. I’m happy with how Australia played against France to keep them scoreless in the first half and defend for a lot of that match it was something I thought that this is a whole new Australian side then we have seen before at the world cup or playing in friendlies.

I reckon that the match should have been a 1-1 draw you could see that the French player dove but I’m just biased because I’m from Australia I would like to hear what other people from other country thought was it a penalty or not.

I hope you have enjoyed this post and go the Socceroos

Video of the Week

Everyone for the second video of the week I found a challenge type video that I know Matt and myself would like to try it and upload to our youtube channel which you can find here https://www.youtube.com

You can see in the video I found are just some mates kicking around the football in an AFL related challenge with you trying to not get the letters of the word HORSE which means you try and get a goal and try not get any letters of the word horse. Courtesy of the video goes to Dylan Holt and you can check out his youtube channel by clicking the link here https://www.youtube.com

My favourite shot in the whole video would have to be the dribble kick on the boundary to get it in and try not get the first letter of Horse this is probably one of the hardest kick to do if you haven’t done it before I haven’t done this shot but I reckon if I practice it I will be able to get it. I reckon the hardest shot other the shot dribble kick from the boundary would have to be the opposite foot torpedo kick. The reason why is because how many times would you use your other foot to kick the football let alone do a torpedo kick.

Thanks for watching and I hope you enjoyed the second post of video of the week leave a comment if you would like to see Matt and myself try this challenge. Also, in that comment why not say what your favourite shot is and why that shot is your favourite shot in the video.

If you would like to see a type of video for video of the week I would like to hear you thoughts and maybe make them a video of the week.

until next time

Video of the week

We have decided to introduce a new weekly post to give you all a bit more of a background about the type of stuff we like/enjoy. It will be a weekly post with a YouTube video of something we have found during the week.  In some cases it could be something that the Mates Madness team could attempt in the future or a video either Matt or myself have found interesting.

For us Dude Perfect (the creators of our inaugural video of the week) is  one of the directions we would love to take Mates Madness in the future, I mean its a group of guys (mates) having mad fun doing stuff they clearly enjoy One of the reasons we created this site was for us to get out with our mates more, to encourage everyone else to spend more time with there mates and just for people to know they are not alone there are people out there like us who want to give guidance, confidence and motivation that we can all succeed.

The video I have chosen for this week is from Dude Perfect it is there most recent post which is a battle video they chose to make it a giant battle instead of a normal battle video. You can see what my favourite battle shot is which is under the video.

My favourite battle shot would have to be the car shot with them in the back of a pickup and trying to throw the giant dart at the giant dart board they had make.

If you have enjoyed this post I would like to hear the feedback and maybe you could recommend a video I could watch or a video with some challenges that you would like to see Matt and I attempt maybe even with other local Mates Madness fans and content creators involved in.

Until next time
