    Micro Camera Shows the Workings of a Combustion Engine

    "Someone had the great idea of putting a high-pressure, heat-resistant camera inside the cylinder of a four-stroke engine. Shooting at 1000 fps, the camera recorded just exactly what happens to make engines run. Suck, Squeeze, Bang, Blow!"

    Fascinating, but I wish they hadn't cut off the rest of the exhaust stroke. Maybe in the "director's cut"...

    Excellent! I showed it to my wife and saw the light go on. Until I got to the part about how the power ends up being used by the transmission... oops. Should have just stayed with the film.
