What Happens When A White Hot Tungsten Cube Is Placed Over Watermelon And Steak [WATCH]

There’s always a childlike fascination we have when it comes to foods being exposed to fiery substances.

In Beyond the Press’ newest video, they take a look at what would happen to two different types of foods when a white-hot tungsten cube is dropped on top of them. Because the melting point of tungsten is roughly 6,192 degrees F, it’s able to absorb an insane amount of heat while keeping it’s form.

The heated cube is first dropped on a piece of pork steak which instantly chars the cut of meat in seconds.

For dessert, the cube is then reheated and placed on top of a watermelon. Here’s where it gets fascinating. The watermelon’s rind pretty much withstands the majority of the heat from the cube. Beyond the Press’ crew had to break open the burnt groove created by the tungsten block, reheat it, and re-position it back on top of the watermelon. This time, it sinks right through the fruit, boiling everything inside in seconds.

A large part of the gratification we get from these videos is never having to handle the crazy temperatures ourselves, as well as the cleanup process afterwards.

Still, we can’t figure out why a watermelon can withstand such heat but always seems to break open when I fumble with my groceries. It’s mind-boggling.

Watch This Rubber-Coated Watermelon Fall 150-Feet And Not Break

We’ve written extensively about people fusing food and electronic devices — like iPads and cellphones — together, then dropping them from rooftops to see if the DIY “food case” will protect the device inside. Most of the time it doesn’t work, but it’s still fun to watch.

Recently, the YouTube channel, How Ridiculous performed its own experiment when your everyday, run-of-the-mill watermelon was coated in a “magic rubber spray” called “Line X” — an industrial strength coating — and tossed off a 150-tower. The results are pretty surprising.

Additionally, to prove it was an actual watermelon, these guys used a table saw to split the juicy fruit open.

It actually looks like the watermelon had separated from the rind, so if you have trouble hollowing out your next watermelon, just give it a nice easy toss.

15 Things You Should Eat Before Sex If You Want To Last

sex-food-lick

The Weeknd’s new album Beauty Behind the Madness drops today, significantly increasing the baby-making potential for anyone who has a listen. How best to prepare? Looking and feeling at the top of your physical game doesn’t come easy, but keeping a few key meals and ingredients in mind during the day can keep your stamina in the bedroom, when that time comes, at its peak.

Breakfast

girl-coffee-sex

Start with that all-important meal in the morning.

  • Eggs are the go-to, B-vitamin protein that’ll ease stress levels and make you focus on what you’re doing.
  • Caffeinated coffee wakes your sorry ass up, and even makes you “regular”.
  • No time? Slather heart-healthy peanut butter on multi-grain toast.
  • Even oatmeal’s amino acids will help relax the muscles around blood vessels near your man parts. This results in increased blood flow.

Lunch

avocado-superfoods

Lunch hour should be your biggest meal, so do double duty and have a steak salad.

  • Slow-digesting, lean meats and vitamin-packed leafy greens are a killer combination for stored energy.
  • Add nature’s butter with the good kind of fat: avocado. Your libido will thank you later.
  • If you crave starchy foods, substitute boring white rice for the muscle-strengthening grain called quinoa.
  • Switch out soda for unsweetened tea; it stimulates the brain and cleanses your system with catechin antioxidants.

Late Afternoon

banana-ride

That afternoon slump will have you craving empty carbs.

  • Use that hunger to fuel up on nutrient-dense dried fruit and nuts.
  • Bananas contain fiber and natural sugars, giving quick energy when you need it most.
  • Even a bottle of green juice will pack in those vegetables and fruit with little effort.

 

Dinner

salmon

At night, if you give a damn about what the other person thinks (smells?), avoid garlicky foods or anything that’ll give you gas.

  • Fatty acids found in salmon trigger arousal by raising dopamine levels.
  • Pair it with green beans, which will keep your blood oxygen-rich and flowing easily.
  • Eating fried foods will weigh you down and upset a stomach, and the last thing you want is indigestion.
  • For dessert, figs, red grapes and even watermelon will provide that final boost of stamina.

We can’t prevent you from drinking, so down lots of water beforehand to flush out toxins. Rule of thumbs involve keeping the number of drinks down to keep performance high. One drink for a buzz, too many will deflate your loins sooner than expected.

And turn up that music; ain’t nothing better than not feeling your face while you’re doing the nasty.
