This is the right channel for you.” The YouTube phenomenon, which started in late 2015 and (with the help of rabid Reddit fans) grew to have 1.6M+ subscribers and over 175M views this year, is filled with videos of everyday things getting crushed by a hydraulic press. What happens when you put a diamond—which we all know is the hardest stone around—under the hydraulic press? Or a bowling ball?
