Ellen Gets Nailed

By |   April - 27 - 2009


Ellen’s science guy, Steve Spangler knows how to make a point. Spangler, a regular on the Ellen show demos interesting science toys and experiments, recently one involving Ellen and a bed nails!

On that episode of the Ellen DeGeneres Show, Ellen was placed on a bed of over 4000 nails with the assistance of Steve Spangler.
Ellen performed well under pressure. Believe it or not, the secret is actually the number of nails on the bed and the distributed pressure. The more nails the better since the entire weight of Ellen’s body was spread across the tips of all of those nails.

But we all knew Ellen works well under pressure…

    I love it when Steve Spangler goes on Ellen. My favorite was the cornstarch walk. I did it at home with my kids and we made a huge mess. Don't think I will be doing the bed of nails at home 🙂 I saw this episode when it aired originally. So funny. My favorite part was when the apple stuck to the nails. I wanted to know more about the flying toilet paper and beach ball so I could do it with my kids at home. Steve has more information about it and a ton of free activities you can do with your kids on his website at
