Need To Launch A Ball Really High? Just Find A Lake

Jan 22, 2016 By Houston Barber

Every person has one unique talent. If you have ever walked past street performers on busy city sidewalks, you will see how vast these talents can be. Even if your talent is weird, it doesn’t make it any less special. The talent showcased in this video might be very unusual, but it is also one of the most impressive viral video feats I have seen in a long time.  

This man holds a plastic ball and stands on the ledge of a deck looking over an expansive lake. Nobody knows what he is about to do. After hovering on the edge for awhile building tension, he finally jumps off. But that’s not nearly the end of it. After he hits the water he releases the ball into the air. This is when things get crazy. The ball shoots out of his arms and into the sky. It would take a smarter person than me to explain the physics of what causes this to happen, but it sure is incredible. 

If he could ever replicate this trick, it would be an awesome demonstration to put on for a science class, or the best episode of ‘Bill Nye The Science Guy’ ever. If you’re going to try this for yourself, make sure to be extra careful and let us know how it goes.
