Throwing Things At Wet Window Screens To See The Shockwave Patterns They Produce

December 12, 2017

This is a video of Youtubers The Backyard Scientist and BeyondSlowMotion wetting the screen surrounding a Florida pool and then throwing objects at it and recording it in slow motion to see the shape of the shockwaves produced. I learned a lot by watching it. Mostly, that I want my next place to have a pool. I also learned what happens if you try the same experiment with a neighbor's window instead of a screen and now Mr. Hodges is calling the cops even though I could have sworn he'd left for work already. Maybe that was yesterday. Or last Thursday. You know what they say: time flies when you sleep twenty hours a day and spend the other four sitting on the toilet daydreaming of a better life.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to hoobie, who agrees they should have thrown way harder.

    Nope. Couldn't watch past that guy's beard.

    Well well well... Would you look at that. New fetish acquired.

    There is so much beauty in the world that goes completely unnoticed.

    This is what I learned while tripping on shrooms.

    That and your hand can become 100 hands if you wave it in front of your face.

    The one shape was cool, but I was expecting a bunch of different patterns from multiple objects. Moving on…
