What happens when you get a bunch of guys, a ringo and a very long piece of elastic? A human slingshot, of course!
A clothing company called Vooray built this epic construction to fling people 120ft across a lake in the appropriately titled Paradise, Utah a couple of summers ago. It looks like a fair amount of effort went into building the water slide and putting this experiment to the test.
Apparently three people passed out on impact with the water, so it might not be the safest thing in the world – but man, it looks fun doesn’t it?
