Oh my Gosh!!!

I used to do this as a young kid.

I'd do it on really deep puddles and I would never get soaked, when If I walked through it I would have a huge dripping wet clump of mud for a foot. I'd also try in swimming pools.

No one ever gave me the time of day to listen to how fun it was.

Haha I completely agree with you. It's so funny when in other forums you see people saying come on ats let's put our minds together and solve this problem... Are these really the minds you want solving issues such as oil spills? Lol


And the best part is people in here tried thinking of ways this could be debunked. Really? Theirs not enough common knowledge in here so now we have to convince ourselves and others it's not true...

Well it could very well be a hoax.

Has anyone tried to run over water ?
The guy is certainly falling pretty deep when it fails.

I really think this is plausible.
The shoes look like they are simple low budget plastic sneakers.



IIRC someone worked out if you could run faster then 60 mph you could run on water so this is fake.
There will be a platform just under the surface of the water to make it look like they are running on the surface.

You can do it with custard

Kinda reminds me of the kobe bryant marketing ad of him jumping over a moving car. People actually believed that he did. Until People finally the media said it was not real. That's the power of media and marketing combined with very gullible people...

Fake ... If you notice that when they succeed to "run" on water, they all fall or stop or sink at the same spot. They are running on some type of surface just under the water.

Actually Cold Poker, if you watch the video, sometimes they fail and don't get very far.

Anyone here who is saying that this isn't real is showing their ignorance in front of a lot of people. It's more than possible, it's reality... and it's actually not even that big of a deal.

Which means that some of you are just incredibly uneducated or lack the ability to think.

And the implications, OP, are that this is a fun sport. Jesus, however he may have done it, walked on water without Plexi-glass!


Enjoy.

Edit to correct my native redneck grammar.

Guess I'm getting myself a pair of Hi-Techs, a wet suit and giving this a try. It looks fun.

I'd like to point out that I posted because it was cool, not for a bunch of .... to make fun of the people that actually appreciate to see it and think it over.


The comment on the oil like is the best example. Hilarious even.
As if anyone would listen if one of us actually comes up with a good idea.

Posting on a thread to ridicule its posters is by far the best way to waste your time.
Good for you.


I very much like this video especially cause there are more ideas posted that say it is possible then there are that prove it isn't.

Anyway.
I like the reactions. Keep m coming.

This is all I have to contribute. It could all just be a silly trick like this as it was video taped. Though running may cause slippage if he was running on underwater boards.

In theory, this is not 'impossible'. The key to this is that water is not compressible under normal circumstances. Although a fluid, if water is impacted with sufficient velocity then the water effectively behaves like a solid surface.

Anybody who has 'belly flopped' really badly into a pool will attest to the fact that they may as well have been slapped in the guts with a plank of wood. As the guy demonstrates during the video, this is part of the process of skimming stones and so it is a real enough phenonema.

So, although not discounting the theory, I would have to have a bit more proof that the incompressible foot-falls could be achieved, the key being the flat surface of the shoe preventing a 'slicing' motion through the water which obviously prevents the 'solid' reaction of the water from occurring.

I would not claim that this video is 'proof' or a 'hoax' but the theory stands up in principle.

Are you joking? of course its a hoax! Basic physics tells you that the surface tension on water can easliy be broken unless the weight is spread accross it. Like that little lizard with the big feet or the infinite small insects that run across it. Not big humans with all their weight concentrated onto an area the size of their own feet. Load of bollocks that video. They've got a plank of wood or a submerged jetty under the water. The end.
Why have they not filmed from above or underneath the water theyve got wet suits on get a diver with a waterproof camera.

People can't honestly think that wearing water repellant shoes will help them run on water? As a previous poster mentioned, there is not enough water tension to provide any support for normal human with shoes that are water repellant or not. In the case of a belly flop there is a much larger surface area and distribution of weight to said surface area. What's more even if you belly flop off the first tower you don't just stop, you hurt but still sink into the water.

Come on people try jumping feet first into the water and tell me if you can land on it and successfully jump up again. This is essentially what they are saying; feel free to try it with the best hydrophobic shoes science can create too and I'll still bet my house you can't.

Why is this on the front page? Of course humans can't run/walk on water...in the past couple hundred thousand years nobody has. It would be like debating whether a human can flap his wings and fly.

I saw this video on Mindcrap.com and Youtube a few days ago.

I can't believe this is actually a big deal, you guys are totally embarrassing me in front of the FBI guys who monitor this site.

Only in a good Catholic country like Portugal would this be possible.

the human body can achieve a lot

parkor is a nice example of that

some of the feats in the following vid seem unreal at times but perfectly possible.

www.youtube.com...

im sure everyone has run on water even if only a few cm on top of the pavement when its raining, im sure if practiced and trained you could stay on the water even if for only a few cm. and then you can always practice some more....

Fake. Actually "staged" would be the better term. Like a magic trick.

-second line.
