None of the Above Fire and Water

None of the Above Fire and Water

Sick of spending time at the car wash? Engineer and show host Tim Shaw thinks he can get the job done in just one second! In None of the Above, Tim conducts a series of "man-on-the-street" experiments that involve science, physics and engineering, and all of which will blow your mind or make you hold your breath. Tim hopes dropping 200 gallons of water on his car will wash it in just one second. The outcome may not be quite what the assembled crowd expected, and Tim explains the science behind what happens. Want to know how to get a free meal at a restaurant? See Tim trick the wait staff and get his burger for free.
