Hydraulic Press Tries To Use a Soap Dispenser, Fails, Soap Is Everywhere

When a hydraulic press takes on the bathroom, things get messy. First, the ceramic toilet completely explodes. Then, the toilet paper is flattened into a useless disk of cardboard.

Watch Carbon Fibre Totally Unravel Under Extreme Pressure

Have you ever seen, the super strong, super light super material known as carbon fibre get squished like this?

Watch A Yellow Rubber Duck Somehow (Sort of) Survive the Hydraulic Press

Don’t get me wrong, it’s totally smushed. But yet the vaunted (?) yellow rubber duck doesn’t explode like how the previously impenetrable hockey puck nor did it get destroyed to smithereens like every other object that’s been put under the hydraulic press.
