Makes me think about the Mythbusters episode where they test the myth that you'd be safe from gun fire underwater. E: Here's the .50 cal sniper bullet part of the ep: https://youtu.be/yvSTuLIjRm8

Let's try it again but this time with Balloon Piercing bullets.

I love how they're sitting there with their fingers in their ears and only the shooter has proper ear pro.

If only JFK had water filled balloons, we had the technology!!
13 Aug 2017 15:47 - +116
Those options though. * A: Won't stop the bullet * B: 7 * C: 4 * D: None of the above

Omfg I finally saw this gif until the end! Everytime I saw it was one of those infinite loops that never got past the shot, thank you OP.
13 Aug 2017 15:30 - +34
The bullet velocity wouldn't be decreasing linearly like the animation says
13 Aug 2017 14:03 - +24
What caliber bullet was this
13 Aug 2017 14:41 - +22
Good show on Netflix. I don't recall the name, but it's about science. They take average people and make them guess what will happen in the scenario.

I feel like the The Slow Mo Guys video is a little bit more worthwhile. https://youtu.be/zNcYm6WjbWI?t=2m9s ------ Bonus action dive: https://youtu.be/zNcYm6WjbWI?t=3m23s

The animation shows the bullet going straight through each balloon, but this almost looks like the shot was just on a diagonal downwards angle - as if it wasn't being stopped by the bullets. But the guy just didn't have a clean shot through. What do others see?
13 Aug 2017 16:34 - +17
I'm mostly water, and way heavier than 4 water balloons. I could stop like a hundred bullets.
13 Aug 2017 14:54 - +17
I legit thought that big dude at the start of the video was going to stand behind the balloons to prove a point.
13 Aug 2017 17:06 - +16
The part where she cups one of the water balloons...
13 Aug 2017 18:10 - +12
That wasn't a straight shot, the bullet was going downward. The animation is not factual.
13 Aug 2017 15:15 - +7
I will be safe, if I stand next to 2 women and bullet comes from side.
13 Aug 2017 15:13 - +6
The type of gun and bullets change everything.

Why aren't we dressing our troops in this?
13 Aug 2017 19:13 - +5
He missed, look at trajectory lolol

/u/waterguy12 would like this
13 Aug 2017 21:39 - +3
let's put a bunch around guam
13 Aug 2017 16:42 - +3
Those brave balloons gave their lies in the name of science. RIP you honorable souls.

I really thought at first they were going to stand at the end with the line of balloons at face level, and the option of "Won't stop the bullet" was making me *really* concerned.
13 Aug 2017 19:26 - +2
So how many humans is that equivalent to?
13 Aug 2017 23:15 - +2
I like how she cups the balloon like a ball sack
