Illustration for article titled This is what it looks like when a bullet shatters a strawberry

Every once in a while, especially on a Monday, you have to visit Alan Sailer's Flickr stream. He's the master of using high speed photography to capture images of pellets from a pellet gun hitting everything from frozen strawberries to Christmas ornaments (actually, he has a special section devoted to "the war against Christmas"), candy and dolls. He also has a small air cannon that allows him to launch objects like, say, eggs at 170 mph. Warning: High speed eggs can shatter glass. Yes, this is just one of the many fun facts Sailer will teach you. All while giving you the vicarious thrill of shooting jellybeans and rubber bands.
