It's official: Claw machines are rigged. But we all pretty much assumed that anyway, right? Like a lot of fairground and arcade games, the odds are ever in the house's favor. They're not games of skill, but simply pot luck.
But... that doesn't stop us from trying anyway.
Take a look at this video by VOX and YouTube user Matt3756 explaining how the claw machine makers rig the machines to make a solid profit off your frustration and stubbornness.
As estimates of the speed of global warming increase and our polar ice caps melt at an alarming rate, sea levels could rise by at least 90 centimeters (three feet) by the end of the century – the effects of which will be seen all around the world.
With the help of CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC), an international team of researchers have found evidence of something physicists have spent decades hoping for – subatomic particles behaving in a way that defies the Standard Model. In particle physics, the Standard Model is the best theory we have for explaining how particles behave and interact; however, it is incomplete as it does not account for gravity. By using the LHC, researchers hope to observe conditions that violate the standard rules of particle physics.
