    I love how the safety device was a colourful inflatable beach ring :)

    But is that real? His flight path looks a little unrealistic to me. Still looks fun though :D

    We made rockets out of two-liter bottles in high school. They really do have a lot of propulsion.

    I believe it was real, seeing how erratic his flight path was one must assume that all the bottles did not go off at the same time. If one side went off before the other it would send him flying in a circular motion. Once the others cuaght up the first set would be nearly empty cuasing his sudden descent into the water. I think they were suprised he went so far. God knows he was.

    Go Japan!! That was cool. The guy strapped to the thing didn`t seem to think so. He looked like he was going to wet himself. It was like the Extreme elimination challenge show. Both are entertaining for sure! I so want to try it!!

    If the bottles didn`t go off all at the same time then he wouldn`t have flown in a straight line.

    That looks like so much friggin` fun!!

    I saw this one Japanese game show where contestants had to eat a ridiculous lenght of sushi the fastest, (think it was like 10 feet or 20...) but in the middle was the "wasabi zone". One foot of pure wasabi wrapped in seaweed! 0_0

    If any of you watch Mythbusters, they did a show about building a personal jetpack. They used a gasoline engine (that I`m sure had a lot more power than those water bottles) to drive two props in small ducts to create lift. They couldn`t get it off the ground, even unmanned. So I very much doubt a guy with a bunch of 2-liter bottles strapped on his back is going to shoot off like a rocket.

    I can`t tell if that was for real, or just real good video editing. I`d like to know what he used as a fuel. It seems to me that a 2 litre bottle would expend its fuel rather quickly and not keep someone in the air for that long, nor get that much lift. I`ll have to see it a few more times to really get my head around it better.
