Russian Firefighters Make Hoverboard With Water Hoses

fireman-water-hoverboard.jpg

This is a video of a group of Russian firefighters who rigged a bunch of fire hoses to a metal platform to make it hover with a guy standing on top (previously: using the same concept to lift a car). Does this actually serve a purpose? Like, do they use that to lift debris off somebody who's trapped? Do they usually drown? Or is this just for fun? Also, why the hell is that dude wearing a helmet? Dammit Russia, you're getting soft.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to E V I L A R E S, who's so evil he lets the phone go to voicemail when he's supposed to be answering calls for the fire department.

    It's like everyday is an episode of Jackass over there isn't it? Only more awesome due to the complete lack of choreography.

    An epic idea for dousing a fire. :D

    Reminds me of the Green Goblin, only dousing fires instead of lighting them.

    Awesome. People with ingenuity are being overtaken by people with fear of water shortages apparently. Sit tight in your chair folks, it will all be over in 79-x=a where x is your current age.

    In Russia, we don't use ladders... we use thousands of gallons of water to levitate to your window when you have a fire!
