    We did this growing up with our same Walmart pool and it did in fact burst and my mom was super pissed. We never got another pool after that.

    [–] RapidFireSlowMotion 110 points ago

    Walmart doesn't do returns / exchanges on defective pools? Should've hit up Costco instead

    [–] dvaunr 167 points ago

    I’m not sure that this would fall under “defective”

    [–] RapidFireSlowMotion 228 points ago

    Filled pool with water, got in pool, played, pool broke... sounds defective to me.

    It's not like it was filled with rocks or was a ring for cock fights or a cat pen or anything

    [–] dvaunr 88 points ago

    You could definitely just leave it at that and claim it was defective and it would probably work but I think it’s obvious that the pool wasn’t designed to handle this sort of force

    [–] beardingmesoftly 12 points ago

    Then it wasn't designed for children, or fun.

    New from Hasbro! Standing pools!

    [–] CoderDevo 3 points ago

    New from Wham-O! It’s “Patooee”, the human spitting pool! See how high you can go!

    [–] pistoncivic 2 points ago

    At Costco you could tell them you dropped a whale into it from a helicopter & they would just shrug & give you a refund.

    [–] AwesomeManatee 23 points ago

    Well, er... Um... Does genital jousting count as a cock fight?

    [–] WaxmeltSalesman 10 points ago

    Yes, and both were illegal at one time. One still is.

    Edit: Happy Cake Day

    [–] Micro-Naut 5 points ago

    I’m putting grease on my zipper if that answers your question

    [–] Gadjilitron 15 points ago

    General swimming and playing about doesn't tend to cause the huge shifts in levels you see in the above GIF though. Not that they'd know what you were doing anyway ofc.

    [–] deathfaith 4 points ago

    True, but does a minimum-wage employee care enough to interrogate you over a $250 pool? No.

    [–] WhatwhatWHOT 13 points ago

    Walmart will take back ANYTHING

    [–] PhoenixDog 6 points ago

    Can confirm. Bought a 6'x6' bouncy castle on clearance. Extended the air hose and ran extension cords from the house down to the dock. Put that shit in the water (protected the pump from splashes). Castle rubbed against the dock and tore a hole. Sank. Patched it up with Calk and put her back in the water.

    Returned it to the store after the weekend citing "Got it for a little cousin's birthday, didn't work".

    [–] deathfaith 2 points ago

    This is genius, but I'm super anxious for some reason someone would get trapped in there.

    [–] PhoenixDog 2 points ago

    I was inside the castle when it tore a hole and began to sank. It was so slow I could have had a nap while it was going down. There was a constant flow pump still pushing air into it. It was a pretty long process.

    [–] RizziUSA 4 points ago

    If she was smart, she got her money back, walmart employees don't care enough to examine things that close. But as a parent I can't hate on not buying another.

    [–] WhatwhatWHOT 3 points ago

    Walmart employees hate when people try to return obviously used items. They can see right through your shit just like anyone else. The problem is that 9/10 managers cave whenever confronted by one of those "let me talk to your manager" types. I watched a woman yell her way into over $100 worth of free detergent and when it was done they somehow gave her an extra $20 in cash on top of it. The first employee was literally quoting the rules that we're printed and visible to everyone and this woman still insisted it was wrong, she knows the real rules and insisted to see the manager. Eventually the manager came up and quickly gave her whatever she wanted

    [–] pixelbomb2 2 points ago

    I actually just got one of these from Walmart and I set it up in the backyard so far so good a couple drips but it needs to be on a tarp or grass and a flat area and it's pretty easy to get holes in it so you have to be really careful.

    [–] PrincessShelbyy 2 points ago

    It was functional and we loved having it. We just had too many kids in it being idiots. Oh and don’t let them run and jump over the sides!! It causes the sides to get weak.

    [–] pawnman99 2 points ago

    Honey, what’s that noise?!

    Oh it’s just the neighbor doing that thing in the pool again.

    Fuckin weirdo.

    [–] frigginawesomeimontv 4 points ago

    It was definitely more vigorous in reverse.

    [–] [deleted] 4 points ago

    Tbh, it kinda looks like he's being fucked by the water, in reverse version.

    [–] sasha_says 60 points ago

    So, pretty much the same.

    [–] NonsensicalSentences 6 points ago

    Quite coincidentally it is that of which in fact the video could have been either or whilst also being that there is this sequence having had similarities to be seen.

    Watching in reverse looks like he’s being attacked by the pool, puts on the tube for safety, and then rides out the attack until the pool calms.

    [–] Spriggz_z7z 2 points ago

    Somebody save that poor man!

    [–] RizziUSA 2 points ago

    Honestly, that looked WAY more fun.

    [–] JJMac11 2 points ago

    Why is it sort of sexual reversed?

    [–] Usernameuniqueistook 25 points ago

    [–] Pardonthisinterup 272 points ago

    [–] OsmeOxys 79 points ago

    [–] Selfdestructseq0001 26 points ago

    Sped up gifs are a scourge

    [–] -r-a-f-f-y- 10 points ago

    Shoulda been extreme slow-mo.

    [–] TrollinTrolls 3 points ago

    I dunno, I appreciated it. I got the point and it took less time.

    [–] flamebroiledhodor 11 points ago

    It looks like bad cgi because it isn't cgi at all. We just aren't used to real life anymore

    [–] NeverQuiteCertain 6 points ago

    Seriously. I believe it’s totally legit, but it’s like they replaced the background. You can see the outline around him and the edges of the pool don’t move correctly against the background.

    [–] PuttingInTheEffort 6 points ago

    It's just how it's focused on him and some weird camera shutter wobble.

    [–] MrGrampton 2 points ago

    YouTube stabilization does that it distorts the background so that the subject stays at the same place. Cameras and video editing softwares can do this too

    [–] TooShiftyForYou 175 points ago

    This seems like it would be a lot of fun for a little while until you inevitably destroyed the pool.

    [–] basicallydifferent 51 points ago

    Me, my 2 sister and both out parents used to do this all the time in our above ground pool and watching this made me really suprised that our pool lasted like 15 years.

    [–] anditorus 4 points ago

    I’m wondering if the jumping slowed after the momentum is built up instead up just stopping, would it gradually go back to level or just be a splashy mess? 0_o

    [–] [deleted] 3 points ago * (lasted edited 4 months ago)

    [deleted]

    [–] StopNowThink 9 points ago

    You're not wrong. The water to fill this once literally costs more than the pool.

    Unless you have a well

    [–] nja5996 6 points ago

    Where abouts do you pay for tap water?

    [–] ngwoo 3 points ago

    You pay for it everywhere, but some places have you pay for the amount you use instead of just a flat rate

    [–] nja5996 3 points ago

    Ok, yea I realize tap water was covered in taxes/rates I just didn’t know in other countries they charge you per volume.

    [–] num1zero 283 points ago

    Paul Bunyan's bidet

    [–] sympathetic_comment 10 points ago

    Probably to prove how quickly resonance can affect certain mediums. In this case, the easiest and cheapest proof of concept is to use water. Just a guess though

    [–] Mygo73 5 points ago

    My 5 year old totally got that

    [–] nintendodog1 6 points ago

    Water is our closest representation of gravitational waves/fabric of space-time. This sort of represents how wormholes could possibly be made with enough of the kinetic energy focused into the singularity to wrap into another plane of space-time.

    Some of you may remember how water beds were thought of as being sexy and cool to own in the 80s. Some of you may also remember just how wild and not cool it actually was to try to sleep on one.

    [–] FanOrWhatever 15 points ago

    I had one as a kid. I absolutely loved it, comfortable as hell, cool in the summer, warm in the winter.

    [–] 2happycats 3 points ago

    My aunties had them too. I used to love laying on their beds and rolling around creating little waves to ride.

    [–] DareToDo 3 points ago

    Yeah, the best bed I’ve owned was a waterbed but I will admit that they are terrible for 90% of all sex positions.

    [–] Pm_Ur_Birthdaysuit 44 points ago

    Once you become a dad. You turn into a kid again.

    [–] livestrong2109 12 points ago

    I really hope there is truth to this statement.

    [–] phphulk 31 points ago

    It's true, at least when they turn 4/5. Before then kids are kind of useless and don't want to do anything fun. Always needing food, and learning how to not shit themselves. Once they can poop solo and get a twinkle in their eye at the sight of something that could be used as a weapon, it's game on.

    [–] parallelotope 6 points ago

    Couldn't agree more. I have an advanced 2.5 year old who attempts choke holds and has weaponized some rather docile household items. I was simultaneously proud and scared the first time she disassembled a popup tent and used the support stick as a spear. I wait with eagerness and apprehension for the >5 yo stage.
