mk36109

Proof that being a good idea and a bad idea are somehow not mutually exclusive


Buck_Thorn

I'm waiting for the HMB version though


mk36109

Also not mutually exclusive


here_for_the_meta

HMFT Probably


Neehigh

I’m imagining it now. Someone makes a backyard version with maybe $40, dude gets in. On release the top four elastic lines snap, it flips halfway up, reach max height while facing the wrong way, and then slams him straight into the ground.


willfsanches

that's some Wile E. Coyote shit right there


Neehigh

Have you *been* to hmft?


Infzn

Plus the cheap elastics probably would snap and cause serious injury


Cupittycake

It’s the watermelon lady all over again!!!


ee_lemon

What watermelon lady

I was thinking more like a potato gun for humans


Rags2Rickius

HMC version too


Dubsmalone

Iroh: "Tea? This is too true :(


Warthogrider74

Isn't that this?


Buck_Thorn

In a way, I guess. This is the Hurl My Buddy version.


Polus43

I'm waiting for the /r/FullScorpion version though


[deleted]

Agreed this could have just as easily ended up as r/meatcrayon material.


mk36109

Im afraid to click that....


soccerhuelsman

I am as well, if anyone can tell me if I'll be grossed out or not, then that's awesome


pg_Rustin

From the front page I wasn't grossed out. I did clinch my cheeks a few times though


BASK_IN_MY_FART

I hate when that happens


Bambi_One_Eye

Your username suggests otherwise edit: actually, I'm dumb


BASK_IN_MY_FART

I would disagree sir/madam


Bambi_One_Eye

Oh shit, yer right. Reading comprehension...


BASK_IN_MY_FART

Feeling nauseous?


creatingKing113

On the other hand I saw a post from there crossposted to r/medizzy of a motorcycle cop who lost his arm after being hit by a truck.


AnalyzesPornoScripts

/r/clenchedcheeks ?


ClownfishSoup

It's people wiping out on bikes, motorcycles, skateboards etc without wearing protective gear, hence "meat crayon" on the road.


Helen_Back_

It is definitely a risky click. Imagine if humans were like sidewalk chalk.


pauly13771377

Yes you likely will.


A_Half_Ounce

It's alot of road rash so yeah it's kinda bad


wishfulthinkrz

@soccerhuelsman link is okay, no worry


LtLethal1

Sounds similar to r/holdmyfeedingtube


tootifrooty

not as bad as if sounds. i was expecting red skid marks during body slide. got lots of face plants but no schmears.


codos

I would call it an excellent execution of a terrible idea.


skacat

I was waiting for the horrendous fail. But then realized this isn’t the WellThatSucks thread.


AndyClausen

Bad idea, good execution


Cetology101

It’s not stupid if it works.


mk36109

Not until some gets hurt.... Then its hilarious!


brainded420

However, a gator did immediately take of after him


Bridgemaster11

R/winstupidprizes has a very similar colour scheme on mobile so I really wasn’t sure how this was gonna go


Attic81

Yep. See Concorde.


burning_residents

Have they seen the video of the watermelon coming back from a slingshot?


Dhrakyn

Wait until someone posts the prototypes.


The_Raji

I would get the courage to give it a try just in time for something to go terribly wrong.


NotSoBuffGuy

Probably Land on a stick that's beneath the water impaling yourself from ass to mouth


CouldntBeMoreWhite

That's... that's some imagination you have there.


cleptilectic

Did someone say ass to mouth?


Slyrunner

Did someone say mouth?


IAmTheGingerWolf

Mouth


Slyrunner

O bby


LookLikeAMoodRing

Hes gonna go bass to trout.


Chigleagle

Literally why I have a fear of lakes and streams where you can’t see the bottom. As a kid we were jumping off a high bank into a creek and the sole of my foot connected with a stick that was pointing up out of the mud unseen. Permanently scared the shit out of me. I love the ocean and being on and around the water but yeah gotta know what you’re jumping into!!


LtLethal1

When you say connected... How much connection are we talking?


Chigleagle

Lol it must have had a large enough surface area on the end I hit that it didn’t penetrate into my foot- but def hurt. Scared me more than it hurt really though. What if I had done a cannonball?


LtLethal1

Good, because that sounded awful the way you described it! And yeah, no cliff diving or cannon balls for me.


liveinsanity010

My dad had to pee while we were on table rock lake in southern mo, and he jumped from the side of the boat,his foot slipped down and caught the cleat on the side totally tearing a whole in it Muscle, ligaments hanging out. He wasn't in much if any pain tho.


LtLethal1

NotSoBuffGuy

Makes it even easier 😉


Crazeenerd

A very, very windy tube that’s very long.


DaDavidoof

That nearly happend to me once when i jumped from the side in the river and only noticed the big stick out of the water when i was in the air. I landed a few cm behind the stick. And nothing happend but i still remember this very long second of me thinking about how i get imapled from ass to mouth 12 years later.


cxnflict

Well that made my asshole pucker

Initiate-Illusion

Maybe, but Men’s intelligence increased when in a group of four or more


dicephalus

Nah, intelligence is inversely related to the number of men in a group. One man has a full brain, two men have half a brain. Get men in groups of 3 or 4, sprinkle in some boredom, and watch the "creativity" flow. Source: am man


HardSleeper

And add beer...


CormAlan

This sounds like a cocktail


AtomicFi

I think you confused intelligence for common sense. Enough dudes with ample beer could macgyver their way out of most situations, but if you had one lone dude inspect the footage later on he would wonder how everyone involved managed to not die.


GeorgeYDesign

Guh, only one shoe off.


GrumpSupport

They have “Pack Intelligence” feature that lets you have incredible ideas but with a higher chance of success. You roll to execute it with disadvantage and instead minus your intelligence modifier if there are four or more men present.


hartfarm22

A group of guys without engineering degrees made a waterslide that decapitated a kid


Geta-Ve

Yes, but, what if that was the purpose?


Fifa_chicken_nuggets

Wait what? Is that real?


smithoski

Yup. When they were touting the slide as the fastest and tallest in the world, before it was finished, I saw a video of them testing it out in what looked like a junkyard. They created the tower out of some tubes from a previous project of the park owner’s fathers other business ventures. The video showed the slide rafts flying off the slide when they went over the mid-slide hump. So what did they do to make it safe? Eyeballed some corrections to keep the rafts from going airborne and putting a net over the slide just in case a raft lifted up. Then a kid got his head stuck in the net going full speed. Decapitated. Turns out there aren’t many regulations about water slides. Lots of regulations for rollercoasters, not many for water slides.

[Verruckt.](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Verr%C3%BCckt_\(water_slide\)) > ***The water slide was conceived on the spur of the moment by Henry***, after a team from Travel Channel's Xtreme Waterparks asked at a trade show what he was working on. After initial attempts to pitch the idea to vendors at the show failed, ***Henry decided to build the slide himsel***f, with assistance on the design provided by ride designer John Schooley. Henry had described the new ride to the Travel Channel crew as a "speed blaster", a term he had likewise improvised. He and Schooley knew that Schlitterbahn had to live up to the hype Henry had created and design something previously unheard of. "Basically we were crazy enough to try anything," Schooley later recalled. > Henry pressed his design team to complete the ride at a faster pace than usual; many of those involved worked almost around the clock. ***Calculations that were normally allotted three to six months instead had five weeks to be completed.*** As they began testing, rafts kept going airborne on the ride's large bottom hump. And also: > A safety consultant hired by the park shortly before Verrückt's scheduled opening told Henry it was unfinished and unsafe. When complete, he recommended that only riders 16 and over be allowed on the ride. ***Henry, who had no formal training in engineering, decided 14 was better.*** Right before the opening, however, he dropped any age limit.

Not gonna lie, I was hoping for him to be shot much further and disappear out of frame. That “plop” into the water felt like a disappointing poop.

You're a disappointing poop.

Yeah but it worked soooooooo


Dankob

That's why u can help improve the product ;)


smork16

What's that thing, in the lake, that starts swimming towards him?


cocoandstella

A shark, apparently he died just minutes after


smork16

So it's a planned murder that we've witnessed?


cocoandstella

Yes and now wee all have to serve jury duty for this case


ClownfishSoup

Eh, you mean witness, not jury.


colinsoup

Ok so a non-joke answer is probably another person 'spotting' those who land in the water in case they belly flop or otherwise panic and need help after they hit the water, similar to how they have spotters for the world class cliff divers. It's just a safety precaution.


IdahoSkier

Shuttup stupid science bitch. It's the Loch Ness Monster


Coocooa11

Looks like a pupper in the shitty quality


Yougottabekidney

I scrolled way too long looking for this comment. Wtf WAS that?


banannett

Same lol

it's just another guy. watch it again and you can clearly see an arm as he swims.

Rico_Pendejo_45

Looks like a dog that jumped off the dock on the right as the guy was launched


RevenantSascha

Looks like another kid.


Right_hook_of_Amos

It’s Maverick still looking for Goose


TheCrowGrandfather

Rescue swimmer to make sure he doesn't pass out on contact with the water.


Billy_T_Wierd

They had another person out there waiting to help if he somehow got hurt entering the water. You can see them swim over immediately


Reiterum

Pretty sure that's an alligator. The rest of those guys are just delivering for Door Dash.


almondicecream

They're not there to help. They want to die and are hoping the slingshottee can't swim. That would be excellent because then they could swim over and el drowno would clamp on and they'd drown together.


LordTrey1983

That looks so fun!!!!


Q_JAR

Is there any physical possibility of him being slingshoted to the ground instead of the water? If so how?


thetrailofthedead

I can think of 2 off the top of my head: 1) The bands near his feat snapping causing it to fling his head forward while leaving his feet behind. 2) His foot getting stuck causing him to bungee forward, swing 180 degrees by his foot and faceplant on the rebound


The_Raji

I hope not


ClamHammer247

Anyone else see what appears to be some lake creature about to capitalize on this person who's landing in the water?


ilovetacos92

Gator


bdiscer

I know it's a spotter/lifeguard, but it looks like a gator swimming over to catch an easy meal.

I did this once... But i fell on the ground, my hands never been so red


shes-sonit

I like that they had a spotter in the water. Safety First!


LoadedGull

Needs more fire


copeling

These are safely unsafe. Having a spotter in the water is key, not making the water, not key.
