Even if the world of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) doesn’t hold your interest all of the time, there are certain things in this field that are nothing short of amazing. Watching Elon Musk’s red Tesla Roadster launch into space then begin orbiting our solar system is one of these modern marvels. Millions of people across the world were completely captivated watching the Roadster, with a mannequin named “Starman” sitting behind the wheel listening to David Bowie’s Space Oddity. SpaceX’s live feed of the Roadster in space has garnered more than 15 million views since it was launched on Feb. 6, 2018.
Just over a month later, famed physicist and arguably the smartest man in the world Stephen Hawking passed away due to complications from ALS and people around the globe were sent into mourning. His family invited 500 people to his funeral but thousands more showed up, lining the streets of Cambridge, England.
Neil deGrasse Tyson, the world-famous astrophysicist, author, and science communicator is a best-selling author and his speaking engagements and one-man shows are sold out in venues across the country.
These men – Musk, Hawking, and Tyson – are definitely educated and have some kind of intellect to be able to accomplish the incredible feats they have in the field of STEM, but a video surfaced on the Primitive Survival Tools YouTube channel recently of two men from a small village that is just as innovative and captivating as you will see from a world-renowned scientist or engineer.
The video, which has received nearly five million views to date, shows the two men digging what appears from the onset to be a shallow grave. The pair use large sticks to break up the dirt, then clear the debris away with woven baskets.
Eventually, a rectangular pit begins to take shape. The viewer is left a little concerned as to what they are watching these men do, especially when four logs are put into the corners. They make a homemade paste from warm water and soil and use it to smooth out the bottom and sides. After it solidifies, it starts becoming more clear what the villagers are building.
The two men then build a makeshift wooden frame around the pit and begin to cover it with thatched grass. They mix more water with soil to make more paste which they use to “glue” the grass onto the frame. When everything is dry they finally add their final touch: water.
Can you guess what it is yet?
