I think this broke me
I honestly thought it was frozen
@Exxon, I did too when he stuck his finger in it, in my head I thought, wait it's not frozen?!?!?!
What sorcery is this
@SAW, the camera is set to a frame rate that perfectly matches the ocellation in the water so to the camera, it appears to be stationary since each frame catches the water at the same point in its repeating motion
@tiburon, Tank you, science/art side of funny pics.
@tiburon, have you seen the video where they 'make the water flow up' using that same technique? Very cool
@big freedom, there's real life illusions that have water flowing up/freezing in midair. they use strobe lights, it's pretty cool
@tiburon, no it's the laminar effect. The frame rate is irrelevant after a certain point
You broke reality. Call God at 999-999-9999 to see about repairs to the space-time continuum
@Proactive Citizenry , God picks up and is Indian, and you can hardly understand him.
@Proactive Citizenry , Hitler picks up the phone...
And in a german accent: Wrong number!
I WANNA TOUCH IT WITH MY TONGUE
Put your dick in it
@Your Darkest Secret, I will
Uh, any smart people know why this is happening?
@I Dexios Divine I, Waterbending
@I Dexios Divine I, I remember my physics teacher in high school showed us something like this. It has to do with the camera used to capture it, not the water itself. I forgot he specifics though.
@The Real Question is, o right, frame rate of the camera isn't high enough. Forgot that was a thing
@I Dexios Divine I, after some quick research I've figured it out. If this is done the same way as my physics example, the water it being effected by a 24Hz sound wave and being captured by the camera at 24fps. Because the frequency of the sound wave makes the water react in a perfect wave pattern, the camera is able to capture the flow in the same position every frame, resulting in this 'frozen water flow'.
@I Dexios Divine I, I think it has something to do with the rate at which the water is flowing and the frame rate of the camera
@The Real Question is, I thought this was just laminar flow
@elweshomayor, I could be wrong, (I'm a IE major, not ME or physics major) but I'm pretty sure laminar flow cant occur in an open system like this. As soon as the water comes in contact with the air outside the pool, any number of forces such as wind, air resistance, variety in density, etc, would force the molecular flow into turbulence, and therefore would not be a laminar flow.
@The Real Question is, look up laminar flow fountains. This doesn't exactly look like one of those since it seems to be just a barrel with a hole but you get the idea
There's science involved, I just know it
Just sitting here in California wondering what an icicle is, never seen that much water
Any news about if they're going to patch this visual glitch or not?
Did we just watch him jack off a stream of water? I mean, I'm not judging, just. I'm not sayin', I'm just sayin'
I thought this was highly purified water infused with nitrogen for water features like the arc fountains in disney
Obligatory sexx joke
It's *single tear falls* beautiful.
Is he jerking off the pool?
