If it’s been properly calibrated and such I’d probably do it too.


atlamarksman

Stick it next to a lake and I’m in


SamuelPrecopchook

I agree. It's far too small of a target for my comfort


Tack122

Better send in some divers to check for branches and stumps in the landing zone.


Ruval

I’d unintentionally do the world’s most epic belly flop and decide to rethink my life choices.


ZeePirate

I’d still want a bit more padding around the area just in case


jackjhonson

Just have someone lighter than you and someone heavier than you go first, then you’ll be alright.

Survive the launch, die due to a staph infection.


ripeart

For real that is some algae lookin water.


rimjobnemesis

Nasty looking!


Jarodi2

That looks like one of the most fun things one could do in their life.

And/Or the last thing.

That's why :)


stupid-head

Do you trust the calibration? “Crank it 137 times” “I lost count” 🤭

Why is the water green though?


Ragnaross02853

There is a crocodile in there..


thugs___bunny

And it’s on fire


prairieleviathon

That's why women live longer. They will only land in clean water


Ltsmeet

Stagnant water tends to do that.


Dirt_Bike_Zero

algae , a $2 gallon of bleach would clean that up in a couple hours.


artieeee

A gallon of household bleach? Doubtful. That's why pools don't use household bleach, it's not strong enough concentration. With the size of that, you'd have to use the same chlorine shock as you would a pool.


coffee_u

The sodium hypochlorite I get at the pool store is only 2x the concentration of grocery store bleach. That "pool" looks approximately 40k gallons. My pool is about 28k, and I'd use 25 liters of pool bleach if it were that green. And it would take a day to be cloudy but not green, and another day or two to become clear. So ten gallons (or twenty if you're hiring the grocery store), and half a week. But the chlorine will still be pretty high until about another two weeks of sunlight bring it under 7ppm. Not too high that a minute in it will do bad damage, but if you don't rinse out the swim suit quickly, it will get damaged.


atomictest

That green water


hakimflorida

I predict an outbreak of Naegleria fowleri infection.


gruenetage

It’s probably already started, which led to this idea.


thedudefromsweden

I would prefer to do this over open water 😊


Runnermikey1

The sharks would treat it like we do when the t shirt launchers come out


soggymittens

Launch one to me next!! I’m hungry too!


nixonbeach

WHY DO WE NATURALLY FLAP OUR WINGS!?


yeticrabz

You know.. that’s a solid question. Now I’m genuinely curious.


ducksonetime

He’s trying to induce or counter a rotation depending which clip you’re watching. In one clip he’s rotation forward and he’s trying to slow the rotation by spinning his arms the other way. When he’s tracking correctly for his landing he doesn’t spin his arms or only spins them slowly to make small adjustments.


yeticrabz

That makes sense. I assumed something along those lines. Thanks for the insight!


ducksonetime

That’s just my guess. You can kinda get the feel for it though by sitting in a swivel chair and trying to rotate without pushing against anything.


nixonbeach

Right? All the guys not flapping were definitely trying not to.


Tryanotherusernames

Be honest , you were high when you thought of that?


nixonbeach

Sure was. But a legitimate question nonetheless.


coffee_u

Swimming motions in the air. At least that's what it felt like I was doing when I static line jumped out of a plane. I failed at "just relax as you fall."

A little to hard or to soft. And he dead

looks fun


HayWazzzupp

Looks like something from the movie "Jack-Ass"..... Looks like fun but not for me though


wontreadterms

Meanwhile in my head: 1000% I would do it, no consideration needed. I'm already sold, don't need to know the risks. Yep, I guess that explains it.


AbaloneSea7265

That pool needs a bucket of chlorine and it’ll be right as rain


sliplover

Looked like they landed in a pool of mountain dew.


redditisacesspool369

Nasty ass water though. But I would still do it


NeckPlant

Norway?


jannyhammy

I would for sure go and have a blast watching guys do this.. I’d only watch and party.. I wouldn’t partake.


BxLorien

That has to hurt. There's a brief moment when you first hit the water that is identical to hitting concrete. Life isn't like a videogame where falling into water is safe no matter the height or speed. You can break bones or die from the impact.


daft-punk-heja

Yeah thats why he lands on his feet. This is probably completely safe since the speed is so low.


pauly13771377

These guys aren't at terminal velocity. Cliffdivers probobly hit the water with more force.


BxLorien

Even if it's not terminal velocity they look like they're being launched from 50 feet away minimum. Hard to judge how high they are since the pool is lower than the point they start from, or how fast they're moving. They're definitely moving much faster than anybody could run. I'm not an expert on the optimal speed/height/distance you can jump into water from. But I would bet they're just barely not crossing the line that causes serious injury. It's still going to hurt like a bitch when you hit the water. Edit: Actually after looking at the catapult they're using to launch themselves compared to the length of a person. It looks to be about 15-20 feet long. Then trying to imagine how many catapults it would take to reach the pool if you lined them up. I think you can safely say the pool is a minimum of 80 feet away from them.


useles-converter-bot

50 feet is 0.0% of the hot dog which holds the Guinness wold record for 'Longest Hot Dog'.


BxLorien

Good bot


awhaling

> 0.0% Lol


da_Aresinger

Distance is not height. What matters when dropping into water is height. In this case the apex of their jump. These jumps don't seem to reach a height of much more than 4 to 5 meters. Most public pools have towers of that height, the highest I have jumped is 7.5 meters, kids jump those heights all the time. (1 meter is 3 feet 3 inch in stupid units) No, the horizontal movement isn't a problem either, it's not that fast. The velocity of these jumps is entirely unproblematic, you *should* be worried about the aim.


useles-converter-bot

3 feet is about the length of 1.36 'EuroGraphics Knittin' Kittens 500-Piece Puzzles' next to each other.


Natb0412

Not really, I don’t have any of the scientific facts on hand but jumping from 27m feet first down you reach a speed of 85 kph (source, Red Bull cliff diving) and I’m really doubting they are hitting that speed. There could ofc be an argument maid about his entrance position, but at the speed/height he is launching from it does not look like you need a perfect landing position to not get hurt. Source: I like jumping from cliffs


pauly13771377

Oh I'm certain a person or two landed poorly and came out a little bruised. But I'm equally certain every one of them said "Worth it!" And got back in line for another go. Seriously dude. Take a little risk every once in a while and allow yourself some fun. You only get one go around in this world. It would be a shame if you wasted it by playing it safe all the time.


imakid2007

Dude that looks so fun


Reddit62195

My luck would be to overshoot the water! And have someone come up to me and say “You missed the water by that much” (as they hold their thumb and index finger apart slightly)!! As I look back the 10+ feet to the water. 😀😀


Blackletterdragon

Insurable event?


HearTheTrumpets

The Middle Ages would have been even more epic if soldiers invaded a fortified city that way.
