Fastest Thing On Earth

Jet?  Space shuttle? Bullets?  Nope. All wrong. It's fungi. That's right. Everyday common field-growing fungi. Richard Hammond of the BBC's popular car show, Top Gear features the fungi in his trivia-and-brains show Invisible Worlds.  Captured in slow motion shooting its spores over two meters at over 20,000 G's, the Pilobolus spores make the astronauts on the space shuttle deal look like right sissies with their measly 4 G's. Super-slow motion photography captures the astonishing launch in this interesting piece about poop-loving fungi that is the fastest moving thing on the planet.

OK, I couldn't help but laugh a bit at a bit of a flub.

The video is about the fastest living thing on earth and the first examples given are inanimate objects.

I LOL'd a little.
