Problem Solving: How To Fill A Pool With 15 Tons Of Jello

May 23, 2019

This is a video of former NASA engineer Mark Rober discussing and then tackling the challenge of filling a pool entirely with Jello, which all needs to be boiled and then chilled in order to set. How does he do it? SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER: Not with a bunch of tanned bikini babes and hunks in banana hammocks passing buckets like I suspected. "Suspected, or was really hoping for?" Was really hoping for.

Keep going for the video while I wonder what it was like a day later.

Thanks to hairless, who agrees Jello wrestling is cool, but thumb wrestling is significantly quicker if you need to settle an argument in a hurry.

    Problem 2: How do you empty a pool that someone filled with Jello?

    We filled a baby pool in college with it. A day later it had dried hard as a rock and killed the lawn wherever it spilled out in large quantities. The # of insects the next day were ridiculous too.

    Now it's time to get serious: astroglide slip-n-slide

    Sounds like a pants off dance off a-brewin'.

  • I wouldn't have expected this to be a 'how' issue so much as a 'why' issue.

    You can do anything if you first shout, "FOR SCIENCE!!"

    It would be cool if the deep end had vodka in it.

    And how much water and jello mix was completely wasted to do this? Jesus christ.

    if you actually watched the video you'd know they used gelatin and food coloring, not actual jello mix... but who really need to watch the video before commenting, right?

    I doubt they kept it in there beyond a day, and then threw it out.
