Thanks to Stumbleupon, we stumbled upon an amazingly clear infographic of how the internal combustion engine works. What’s so great about this animated diagram is even though you already know how it all works, when you see it graphically illustrated, clarity invades your brain.  In a good way…


When you see the engine illustrated so clearly, you have the thought “who in the *sam hill* could have come up with such a brilliant invention?” Like the rest of scientific advancement, it was a succession of genius persons.

The author of this illumination is Jacob O’Neal.  He does a lot of this kind of illuminating.  He will show you how to do the Michael Jackson MOONWALK.  Click here.
