ahahahahaha.
EuThanatos, that was great.
i love it when everyone who was trying to make someone look like an idiot turn out to be the idiots themselves. And lmao at krisley who said devi needed to research before he posted! he pretty much just got owned with err...irony? i think thats what you would call it...or hypocriticism or something......but if your wrong, EuThanatos, i`m kinda screwed cause i didnt research to make sure you`re right lol.

I didn`t know the water in water balloons actually retains it`s shaped when the balloon is popped, but that`s pretty cool.

As a complete technicality, the hydrogen bonds acting in the water hold the surface tension so it stays in it`s shape falling, as if it were simply following intertia, the water would be able to spread in a much larger area according to air resistance against the falling water. Good job being a dick to devi, though.

Devi3000,
i`m only finishing 7th/8th grade science but im pretty sure hydrgen had NOTHING to do with keeping the water in that shape cause everything falls at the same speed ... i think the balloon popped so fast from being stretched out (elastic potential energy) that the water all fell out at the same time so it had no reason to change shape. if im wrong any one other than devi3000 may correct me ...she post that bullshi.t all the time i finally got tired of it!"

You are my hero sir, I dish out alot of burns, but that was excellent.

have we considered the possibility that his popping of one balloon and his being drenched by another was actually two takes and not one?

that would certainly explain how he both popped a balloon and had one land on him...

i totally side with u brett! i will be a freshmen next year and that seemed pretty obvious to me. devi3000 really needs to research more before he says anything, or just not say anything at all, it wouldn`t bother me. as for the video it was really cool!! i don`t get how the water baloon landed on him if he popped it right next to him though. . .

Yeah, that would be explained by the fact that it wasnt for your benefit, dippoo.

isn`t it a high speed camera and not a slow motion camera? it records things 1000 times faster so you can play it back 1000 times slower. right?

inertia is part of newtons second law .... it has nothing to do with hydrogen ... so u just sided with me ...basically

i think it has something to do with inertia, or the attraction between all matter, but that is not want i wanted to ask...i wanted to know... was that 2 people or 1? if it was 1, how did he get the balloon on him if he obviously pops it to the right of him

What`s really cool is that, even though it is 80 times slower, the rubber part of the balloon still contracts pretty dang fast

The only 1,000,000 frame per second video that site had that you posted was the second sonic boom one.

And they won`t even let you see it, so why should I give a poo?

thats awesome. I like when the slow mo vids get posted... I love how the water stays in the shape of the balloon basically, until it hits. Although I guess you never think that the water molecules on top dont move any faster then the ones on the bottom when you dont see it in slow mo

This is at least third slow-mo water balloon popping video I`ve seen here, but I liked it.

It was very beautifully done, the music and the angles etc. The frame rate was fast so it was very smooth

I love the effect when they suddenly slow something down in a movie, like with that flying goose.

And.. that was 80 and they can make it up to 1000 times slower! Now I want to see something even faster :)

Wow, that was drating fantastic. Those hydrogen bonds in water make it keep the shape of the balloon for some time. Very cool.
