Why is this probably a faked video?
« on: 26/08/2009 00:57:49 »

Even though it looks pretty real, I have so many doubts that it can be true, that I will assume it is a fake. I mean, how often can you try this and survive? How do you try this and not involve a person? How do you eliminated friction to reach this speed? If it is water, how do you prevent puddling in the middle of the track? Would the impact with the water kill the person? Etc, etc...

Anyhow, I enjoyed it and I hope you will too. Oh yes, stop the video at second 38 if you don't want to see the advertisement (another reason to think it is a fake)

What do you think?

I won't post a link to the YouTube vid of well-endowed young ladies on a wet Slip n Slide. That's Slip n Slide on YouTube.  ;)

Seen them. Only after looking at this legit link. Utube gets you like that.
A bit sanitised, actually, I thought.

yeah, it's fairly boring to hear the first few notes of "never gonna give you up".
