Yikes. Rip tides are normally much sneakier (and less visible) than this.

Well-Meaning Boob Waters Fake Plants for Months

This person thought they were doing a great job of keeping their succulents alive until they had to be told their thumb wasn't so green after all. Apparently this is a pretty common occurrence? At least it still looks nice. Either way, there are loads of instances where people realize obvious stuff way too late.

Here's a bunch of scheduled demolitions of various water towers. In most cases, they fall in the intended direction. Some explode, some fall in a heap, and some manage to stay together amazingly well. It's kinda awesome.

Water Bottle Gets Roasted In The Comments

The more I think about it, the more I feel that this was some brilliant marketing. The company chose to create a slogan for their water bottle that plays on the fact that being alive comes with the inevitability of drinking water. Maybe not as often as we're advised to, but at some point, we're all knocking back some of that tasteless (or is it?) water. So, it'd seem that this water bottle could be for anyone. Unless you don't drink water. If that's the case, I don't understand you, but I respect you.

The Creepiest Things People Saw at Sea

A lot of people have a fear of open water, and that fear kinda makes sense. Whether it's the isolation, the exposure to the elements, or the danger of unseen wild animals, it makes sense that people, especially sailors have creepy stories of things that happened at sea.

With this prank getting popular again, we've seen dads get out of this jam before. However, we've never seen someone counter this prank with such grace. This guy has to be some sort of wizard.

Ah, the Jetovator. Of all the frivolous inventions over the past century, you might be the best. These hydro-power jetpacks and bikes have made for some fantastic YouTube videos, from that news anchor who crashes immediately upon take off to now, this real-life speeder bike chase from Star Wars.

In celebration of the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the team over at the Devin Super Tramp recreated one of the most famous scenes from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, the speed bike chase. And yet, they managed to bring it to the next level: They did it on water.

via Popular Mechanics

Using the Jetovator water bike, Devin Super Tramp and a team of adults and toddlers (playing the adorable Ewoks) recreated the whole speed bike chase on water. It’s actually pretty startling how close they come to topping the original and makes you wonder why they don’t make all those dang Star Wars movies on water. Why they could just call them Star Waters? Wait, that won’t do. Maybe Water Wars? I don’t know. We’re workshopping it.

Devin Super Tramp actually has a bunch of cool videos of real-life recreations of fantastical stuff, like “Pokémon GO meets PARKOUR in REAL LIFE!” Heh. They should just call that one “Parkour-man GO!” Right? We’re still workshopping that one too.
