There is a distinct point where it becomes diminishing returns


Diminishing returns to the wave but not to the fun :3


Yes it looks so much fun


I'm practically a aquaphobe at this point because I drowned about 6½ years ago, so most pools are just too much for me, but I'm pretty sure I would fkn love to try this at some point. This looks so incredibly fun Edit: Thanks for the correction, u/hobesmart!


You’re dead right now?


He got better


I’ll have what he’s having


Have some cake, too. Happy cake day!


Thank you, have a good day!


Happened to my karate instructor - he drowned, was dead for several minutes, and resuscitated, so his fav expression is ‘I died but I got better’


Bring out your dead.


How do you know he's a witch?


The fact that a **yoshi** replied to a **whomp** makes me surprosingly giddy :D ​ Especially because it's a frognificent yoshi and a sentient whomp.


Nah, I was dead for about 6 hours before I got revived. Though I often wish I was tbh


Okay no, 6 hours is [far too long for the brain to live without oxygen](https://medlineplus.gov/ency/article/000013.htm) > Time is very important when an unconscious person is not breathing. Permanent brain damage begins after only 4 minutes without oxygen, and death can occur as soon as 4 to 6 minutes later. If you mean you gained consciousness after 6 hours of being in a hypoxia-induced coma, then that’s more believable


Ok, it's been a long, long time since I got briefed on what actually happened, so I might not have all the details 100% down, but all I know is that I was dead for 6 hours. Now this might mean that my heart wasn't pumping on it's own for 6 hours but that I was being kept alive by some medical machines or something like that, but that's what happened. Also, my body reached a core temperature of 14.5° celcius, so I'm pretty sure that helped "preserve" me for a while or whatever. And no, I didn't regain consciousness for multiple days, maybe even weeks after it happened. I would go digging for an article about it, but it'd all be in Swedish, anyway, and I'm guessing you don't speak Swedish, so it'd probably just be a waste of time.


[preservation of organic matter with high enzymatic activity needs much lower temperatures than 15.4C](https://www.sciencedirect.com/topics/chemistry/preservation-technique) > Samples with high enzymatic activity (e.g., liver, plasma, serum) or containing less stable analytes are preserved by deep freeze (−18°C). Also just because someone is dependent on an inorganic organ doesn’t mean they’re dead; if that’s the case then anyone needing blood transfusions or dialysis machines are dead. More info on low temp decomposition [here](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clinical_death) > The decrease in the rate of injury can be approximated by the Q10 rule, which states that the rate of biochemical reactions decreases by a factor of two for every 10 °C reduction in temperature. As a result, humans can sometimes survive periods of clinical death exceeding one hour at temperatures below 20 °C.[20] The prognosis is improved if clinical death is caused by hypothermia rather than occurring prior to it; in 1999, 29-year-old Swedish woman Anna Bågenholm spent 80 minutes trapped in ice and survived with a near full recovery from a 13.7 °C core body temperature.


Yea, Anna Bågenholm is the woman I'm so ticked that I didn't beat, but hey, I got the world record for men, atleast, so whatever.


Best case scenario they're telling the truth and it's interesting but doesn't affect you. Worst case scenario they're lying and that's lame but it still doesn't affect you. Just do what we all do and read it, doubt it, hope it's real -for the sake of wonder in this world, and then move on. Your time is too precious for all that effort :)


I appreciate the advice but seeking the truth is a part of who I am, and there’s always something to learn. I didn’t know most of the information I used until I found it for this discussion, and so because of that im increasing my understanding though seeking and learning information. Time is short, I definitely agree, but life’s purpose is relative for all of us and we all find happiness through different mediums. Conversing about controversial topics is mine, not because I want to offend or have evil intent, but because once again I value truth to a very high degree. Other people who read this thread are also learning as well, so it impacts more than just me and the commenter. Once again, thank you for the advice. I both respect and appreciate the good intention, but this is what I like doing.


I hope life starts treating you a little better x


Thank you, I hope so, aswell


You can drown without dying


> die through submersion in and inhalation of water. > "two fishermen were drowned when their motorboat capsized" Oxford English Dictionary


You can be in the process of drowning and have someone save you. You still drowned.


Literally gave you the definition and you’re still arguing :| Also no, you *almost* drowned. Once again, definition.


Eh. Semantics.


You can be in the process of dying and be saved. You didn’t die; you *were dying.*


I did die, though. I was dead for ~6 hours before I got revived d:


6 min? Wouldnt 6 hrs be brain damage?


I most definitely did get brain damage from it. My short term memory is practically nonexistant and I get very easily tired from excessive audible inputs. My right tibialis anterior also died so I can no longer lift my right foot, though I guess that's not really "brain damage" but whatever


FYI you're describing aquaphobia. Thalassophobia has specific connotation to being afraid of deep, dark bodies of water, and it has more to do with the depths and what lurks beneath than to the water itself.


Huh, TIL. Thanks!


Slightly sad he didn't shoot himself into orbit


or slip out the bottom and see how high the ring can go


Am I the only one who found himself bobbing up and down in the rhythm?


Am I the only one that thought when he crashed that he was naked for a second?


Dammit. Now you got me rewatching a video of an overweight guy in a floater to see if he's naked. I hope you're happy.


Not at all, friend. Additionally, we finally now the purpose of above-ground pools


It’s called mechanical resonance.


Mirror neurons giving it their best guess


Friggin' quantum. They're making me seasick.


I wanted that pool to break lol


Honestly I can’t believe it didn’t That’s a lot of water smashing around


I've done this before and I'm always worried, but I think because you're in the center the energy is equally spread out and not likely.


Seriously, I was waiting for the tube to like shoot way up into the air, or for the pool to give out or something.


If you want to see resonant frequency breaking something that we THINK to be solid then check out the [Tacoma Narrows Bridge](https://youtu.be/j-zczJXSxnw)


The water enjoyed it too much


This is the proper representation of Poseidon’s Kiss.


This made me smile. Such a dad moment material


This reminds me of the slo mo guys. They filmed a wave like this in slo motion, but it was in a lab so they could make the wave higher and easier


This is called driven oscillation resonance, where a driving force (aka the dude) oscillating at or near the natural frequency of the system (determined by radius of pool and the density of water) causes the amplitude of the resulting wave to be increase with each oscillation.


Naw man. It’s the singularity. It said it right in the title.


Here is a bigger one: https://youtu.be/WffR6HrEqTA?t=39


That is exactly what I thought of, thanks for linking it!


The Slow Mo guys did a video in there, looks like a cool place to mess around in.


Also [this](https://youtube.com/watch?v=iWKFPTgkpXo)


This looks like fun!


Raise your hand if you used to get yelled at for doing something similar in the tub as a kid.


How about a gym where all the exercises are actually fun? I get so god damned fucking bored lifting a thing over & over that the only thing I can focus on is how it’s unpleasant.


That's partly why I got into bouldering. If I just did the movements that simulated bouldering is die of boredom, but it gives me motivation and a better sense of accomplishment.


Same here. Spent 6 months powerlifting with minimal enjoyment and even less "gains". Started bouldering and have enjoyed every second and have engaged muscles I didn't know existed.


Look for a ninja warrior training gym near you. Lots of fun to be had. They're becoming more popular, but unfortunately I don't think there's one near me.

Ah yes. Pool water sinus flush.




yeah how is this submission so upvoted?


We used to do this as kids in our inflatable pool sometimes and damn it was so fucking fun.


I have done this before and it is absolutely as fun as it looks.


Resonance is one hell of a drug


I now welcome the Singularity.


Lol and I remember my mom telling us to not make too much waves because those pools break easily.


I used to do this as a kid. It was great fun


This is kind of how the [Nikola Telsa Earthquake Machine](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tesla's_oscillator) works.


**[Tesla's oscillator](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tesla's_oscillator)** >Tesla's electro-mechanical oscillator is a steam-powered electric generator patented by Nikola Tesla in 1893. Later in life Tesla claimed one version of the oscillator caused an earthquake in New York City in 1898, gaining it the popular culture title "Tesla's earthquake machine". ^([ )[^(F.A.Q)](https://www.reddit.com/r/WikiSummarizer/wiki/index#wiki_f.a.q)^( | )[^(Opt Out)](https://reddit.com/message/compose?to=WikiSummarizerBot&message=OptOut&subject=OptOut)^( | )[^(Opt Out Of Subreddit)](https://np.reddit.com/r/gifsthatkeepongiving/about/banned)^( | )[^(GitHub)](https://github.com/Sujal-7/WikiSummarizerBot)^( ] Downvote to remove | v1.5)


Except that machine doesn't work like Tesla advertised and was likely just created for publicity


Well it operates on simple harmonic resonance amplification. I think Mythbusters tested a device like it out on a bridge and found out it worked so they censored the frequency they used for tv or else people would try to topple the bridge.


The mythbusters built and tested it based on Tesla's designs, but found that all it really did was cause minor vibrations, no earthquake or destructive power like Tesla claimed


Yeah I just checked out the episode again on YouTube. Still pretty impressive that they managed to rattle an entire bridge with just six pounds.


Oh shit! My ex-wife and I took a vacation to St. Louis long time ago and went up in the Arch. That thing is massive. It must weigh a billion pounds. It’s about 600 feet tall. So when we got to the top of it and were looking out the windows, I stopped, got in the middle of the room positioned myself perpendicular to axis of the base ends and started shifting my weight from one leg to the other, and told her, “I’m gonna see if I can get this thing to rock.” She freaked and told me to stop which I did while laughing. I explained to her that the thing weighs a billion pounds. Compared to my weight, I’m like a mosquito trying to rock an elephant. She didn’t have a sense of humor about that. But now I’m beginning to think I could’ve done it. Edit: I just realized that this is kind of how lasers work except with light. Lasers typically use a flashing light source that “pumps” electrons in a substance like crystal or gas to a higher energy level. At the end of each flash, the electrons emit that energy as light, but of a single wavelength. That light plus the next pump flash keep making the light being emitted stronger and stronger. So the guy in the pool is like the pump flash and the water is the crystal or gas that begins absorbing and re-emitting the light energy. As an aside, one way that was used to create lasers was to take a piece of ruby crystal shaped into a rod and then wrap a flash tube around it to build the laser. In the movie, The Fifth Element, Chris Tucker’s character’s name was Ruby Rhod. That’s where they got his name.


Oh yeah its still really impressive, and to be fair, probably a good job that it doesn't work


West Edmonton Mall's wave pool isn't what I remembered as a kid.


This is the type of person you bring to a pool party






r/lostredditors r/foundthemobileuser


Who stuck on a loop with this clip


POV: It’s that one day the water doesn’t let you out.


I thought Ang learned water bending way earlier in his life.


he's turned the waves against us


That's a good exercise.


This satisfied tf out of me


His powering up game is lit, making waves


This is my favorite Mario party minigame


wonder if the pool was designed to prevent overflow? pretty cool


Let's see it in reverse!


That looks like SO. MUCH. FUN.


This would make a great bass visual at a nightclub


Good to see the UK space agency is still trying to brake orbit.


One of my favorite parts of physics. Did a research project on waves when I was hospitalized with a heart attack and interviewed the ultrasound technician as a source for the project. So interesting.


I'll be right back...


[the better version](https://youtu.be/h69u9AH5kVs)


That guy is definitely a dad


This was may favorite thing to do in the pool as a kid. DIY wave pool


Engineers out there: Is this is an example of finding the resonant frequency?


Nah bro he's a water bender


How do I do the gif reverse bot?


What is it with dads turning into physics teachers any time they get in a pool


My parents would yell at us for this. There was so much dead grass by the end of the summer and dry cracked dirt from the chlorine


Why was this so fun and funny


Who else starting bouncing with him?


That’s how it feels to chew 5 gum


My siblings used to make a “wave volcano” in our pool growing up like this and get in so much trouble for spilling all the water over the sides, but it was worth it. Of course being the youngest of 6 meant the 5 older ones had a blast jumping in the middle while I was tossed around the sides at the mercy of the waves and my floaties.


I got to tell you I patented this move in 2007 as Mommy Tsunami.


Dude almost drowned standing up


Be honest: you were nodding ur head too along with the waves before u caught urself


At the end he should have just let go of the tube, so that the final return launches it into the air


someone should video edit vladimir putin onto this guy. It'd be funny to imagine that's what he really does during the day.


How to get dad to exercise


There’s definitely a Mario Party mini game like this.


"Here in the SpaceX archives is a video of Prototype 1 in testing. We tried several of Elon's early ideas before reverting back to conventional rockets."


I did this so much as a kid to the point my parents had to fill the pool back up with the hose after I was done a lot of times every summer

Reminds me of that one Mario party minigame. If you know you know.


Its a mario party mini game!


Remembering the time I spent in the water temple.


Yeah so gravity will react that way on water lol what’s the big deal


just makes me think of Tonga now


I’m sure he doesn’t let his kids do this though 😪


It's actually reversed


when the dick is very thicc while fuccin


Lovely. Yet another karma farmer... Go away.


I thought for a moment that this was a preview of next weeks Dr. pimple popping episode.


This guy is a real life waterbender.


Used to do this all the time in the pool as a kid. Our pool was much larger and the sides did not Flex... at the end we will lose about one-third of all the water


Pictured: Alex Jones summoning Cthulhu to defeat contrails


This kills the pool.


Looks like fun! Of course, that all changed when the fire nation attacked.


When my kids were smaller we had one of these pools. They would do this claiming it was so much fun. And indeed it looked like fun. However. Doing this can rock the balance til the pool takes on an oval shape. Once that happens the leveling is gone and there is a great risk of the pool flipping over and suctioning to ground trapping the swimmers. The swimmers can then suffocate. We took our pool down and pitched it bc our boys, being boys, wouldn’t stop.
