LRR must have some unique angle going on here that they haven't shown yet since there are already a number of other people posting slow-mo videos online.

Not really, unless you're walking all over it with bare feet or something. Wear your safety glasses.

Still, if anything, the frying pan would be less dangerous, because splatter isn't as bad a shrapnel.

One of those "jello" sex toys would be High-Larious I think. :P

Also, where do you hire one of those High speed camera's? I watched a car plough vertically into another car from 35 meters up yesterday, and it was awesome. But I would have been more awesome to film it in high-speed. (And I'm sure we're going to be doing something like that in the future)

I doubt you could get one out there, but dropping a cat upside down to get it land on its feet would be fascinating (not from 10 feet, obviously). Any sort of contraption that would cause something secondary to happen like a Nerf gun rigged to fire when it hits the ground. Anything on fire.

Drop things onto or into other things. A small weight onto a glass Christmas ornament. A pin through a large soap bubble. Something into a pan or bowl of water to watch the various splashes and resulting ripples. A bowling ball through a pane of fake glass.

Get creative, because as Evil Jim pointed out people are posting these videos everywhere and that includes television programs with much larger budgets.
