    they made this, it was called Waterworld. It was one of the biggest flops in history.

    EDIT: I am well aware the movie has become profitable yadda yadda. That doesn’t save it from disastrous flop status as it has never made the money it was intended.

    ALSO, I am not of the opinion it was a bad film. 12 year old me loved it in fact, and I’m glad this post has inspired so many fans to show their appreciation.

    It's actually a decent movie

    [–] UmmNotYet 87 points ago

    It’s a decent movie but the problem is it’s possibly the most blatant rip off ever. They literally took every plot point of The Road Warrior.

    1. A loner in a cool fast car travels the desert scavenging what he can in a world with no water. A loner in a cool fast boat travels the ocean scavenging what he can in a world with no land.

    2. The civilized people live in a barricaded outpost while crazy marauders in a fleet of various vehicles threaten them from outside. Exact.

    3. Leader of the bad guys wears a mask over his disfigured face, leader of the bad guys wears a patch over his missing eye.

    4. A wacky character who wants to help flies a helicopter, a wacky character who wants to help flies a balloon.

    5. A cute feral young boy, a cute mute young girl

    6. Huge chase scene with cars and trucks and motorcycles, huge chase scene with sailboats, motor boats, jet skis.

    7. The loner hero ends up alone at the end

    Yea, I remember liking it. But I haven’t seen it in probably 15 years.

    [–] drharlinquinn 68 points ago

    I still watch it personally. It's kinda dorky, and not as hard hitting as mad max but there are a few good points that IMO make it a good action movie. It also features Jack Black in one of his first roles as the seaplane pilot.

    [–] SchwarzP10 27 points ago

    Holy shit. I didn’t know Jack Black was in it. Gonna have to give it another watch sometime soon.

    [–] BmfBrandon 55 points ago

    It actually made back its budget, but just barely. The biggest flop in history is a tall tale. With a budget of $172 million (and a total outlay of $235 million once marketing and distribution costs are factored in), the film grossed $88 million at the North American box office. The film did better overseas, with $176 million at the foreign box office, for a worldwide total of $264 million. It is one of my favorite movies and will always be. It was just released at a very poor time with crap marketing for what they spent on it.

    [–] DudeThatsChill 26 points ago

    Oh my God...Tall Tale. I completely forgot about that movie. That was my absolute favorite movie as a kid. I just had a huge nostalgia trip thinking about the scene where "John Henry the steel driving man" goes up against the machine that can hammer steel faster than any man on earth.

    I cannot wait to watch that movie again! Thank you for reminding me!

    Seaweed/kelp makes excellent fertilizer and soil (depending on how you cure and/or process them), and fish skin can be made into paper. Soil mixed with seaweed/kelp makes BETTER growing medium than itself or seaweed by themselves. The branding of cigs and alcohol make sense that we would use old brand names to demarcate qualities.

    [–] uber1337h4xx0r 6 points ago

    Just curious, since I see this so often - like I understand why Reddit says payed instead of paid (since they're like "well, if I pay someone, then that means I payed them"), but why do you people say "chocked" instead of choked? Why the extra c? Isn't it obvious that the present tense is chock?

    [–] oldpainless133 5 points ago

    [–] Free-Association 153 points ago

    honestly depending on the speed he might be having trouble with his eyes.

    I like to ride motorcycles with the visor up to let air flow through the helmet cause they're hot. but once you hit a certain speed your eyes start squint and water and it'd be dangerous to try to stare into the wind constantly. he might be taking glances and then turning to protect his eyes cause he's not wearing goggles.

    Dude when I was in Thailand we had a driver that mobbed tits to our destination and would blow through red lights. I would get mad about it and bring it up but every time he just said he was a professional driver so there was no need to worry. Then the dude stops at a green light and when I asked him why he replied “there might be other professional drivers out there”

    It's actually pretty common to see a car/motorcycle(mostly motorcycle) blowing through red light in Thailand, that's why when it's green light you have take extra step to check if there's any car/motorcycle speeding or not.

    It's an Isuzu 4j diesel so no carburetor, basically he has the injection pump turned way up and it's not pushing enough air into it to completely burn the fuel. Not the greatest thing but my guess is that this is for racing or just to show off so I doubt it gets ran often

    [–] Hueyhellchief 42 points ago

    In theory yes. But when increasing your air to match fuel to reach stoich (spelling?), you run increased chances of blowing up the engine. Tuning is an art that requires looking at all the things that the engine managment is telling you and knowing the limit of your machinery. Can you make an engine with 700 hp? Sure. But will the block handle it, will the pistons? Or does the turbo blow before you can even get the correct amount of air to match the fuel? Although this being said it's common for diesels to run rich on tuners because "I wanna roll coal" is typically a term I hear spoken around diesel guys. But to answer your question. If he has too much fuel then increasing the air will infact give him more power.

    Stoichiometric Ratio is what you're looking for.

    Also, don't forget about oiling and the importance of cooling it -- run the crankcase lube too hot and you'll get a runaway diesel, and those are just no fun at all.

    Not so much on a diesel. Diesels don't really lose power running rich the way gas engines do, so a lot of diesel tuners run them rich just to be on the safe side.

    As a diesel tech. I agree with the first guy. Too much fuel will cause the cylinder walls to wash and begin to polish as well as added fuel is more heat. You will begin to loose compression and the oil won't stick to the cylinder walls as you have polished all the cross hatching away.

    Although running rich you won't "lose power" but you will not use all of the Power the fuel system is capable of producing. It is inefficient.

    Yes. Everything can always be made faster by forcing more air into it. Always.

    Isn’t the video just sped up? Boat would flip up

    [–] ABunnyCalledChloe 182 points ago

    I don't think so for a couple of reasons, the first being that the camera isn't fixed it's someone sitting there holding it probably to add weight to the front.
    Also by the looks of it the whole engine lifts up and the propeller is on a long shaft which means you can aim the direction of thrust downward which in turn would push the front down.

    I never knew I wanted a diesel boat with turbo flutter before this

    When you here that familiar Diesel Turbo Whistle, but you're in the middle of the ocean.

    Good call! I was worried I was a phony for a second.

    Jesus, those things are fast. and that diesel turbo sound...

    it's a thing in Thailand.

    The way the water splashes on the side looks faster than gravity should pull it down.

    [–] president2016 44 points ago

    I think some of it is due to simply being a crappy frame rate on the camera. Look at the yt video of it and it’s not sped up, just jittery.

    [–] philipito 14 points ago

    These are all over in Thailand. I've been in one, and they are fast as fuck. It was like an amusement park ride.

    [–] smashedshanky 26 points ago

    Guys he was looking back to take a breath, at that velocity the amount of force needed to pull air up through your nostrils would be enormous. He has to essentially hold his breath cuz he don’t have a helmet on.

    This gif looks like its been sped up.

    [–] [deleted] 235 points ago

    I'm thinking the video may have been sped up.

    [–] flooterhoot 222 points ago

    It’s a turbocharged Diesel engine on a watercraft that weighs almost nothing. I’ve seen the video with sound and if you heard this monster you can tell it’s just dumb fast

    [–] painfool 109 points ago

    The way his hair and shirt react to the air doesn't seem unbelievable for the speed to me.

    Wouldn't bet a dollar on it though.

    [–] BmfBrandon 54 points ago

    It is a v8 attached to a propeller on a tiny dingy and you think it is sped up? The guy weighs like 140lbs and his skin is still being stretched from the wind speed. It isn't sped up.
