I think i could figure that out with basic math except I dont know how to account for the friction.

Repost indeed. I thought that was found to be fake. Guy disappears in the portion of the slippy thing that you can't see, a dummy flys off the ramp and into the pool, and a 2nd guy pops out of the pool. If it's real, I want to do it.

Edit: you don't figure it out with friction, you find out what kind of speed you have before launching, by testing without a ramp. Then just account for the angle your ramp is at and distance to target. We did it in physics in high school, and I was able to roll a marble off a desk into a 1" diameter beaker by only knowing it's final velocity and the x y coordinates of the tube. Pretty simple.

I dont know....look at the person or dummy at like the 14ish second mark...you can clearly see the arms and legs start to tuck for landing. If it was a dummy I dont think it would look like that. Sorry about the repost guys, never saw it on here before.

Was found to be fake. : [

First off, totally disregarding the added velocity from the slide, I'd like to see someone jump into a pool like that from what is essentially a 2 story drop, and notice how the water splashes straight up and not forward. Also look how small the splash is.

I'm almost certain the whole thing is cgi.

Right, what I'm saying is that rccote called the OP's vid for the shape of the splash, and the shallow dive vid proves nothing.

Im 100% sure that record has been beat by Professor Splash at 36ft. He did it on that TV show Time Warp.

I'm sorry, but you people are stupid if you thought that was real even for a second. Nothing about that screams real. It looks fake and would be pretty much impossible to do or live through. And yes repost, for the love of god don't post this **** again. 10 times in the last 6 months is enough for me.

The most obvious thing that made me know for sure it was a fake from the first time I saw it was how fast he accelerates. Use some logic people... retards. Oh, and look at how far away he is, and how loud the noise is. Not to mention the arc he travels. He must be on the moon.
