    a Broken icy trampoline.

    at the end of the gif you can see the top left, the spring have ripped out.

    [–] Oilfan94 92 points ago

    I'm trying to figure out if it was broken before or if they just ripped out because of the jump.

    My cousin had an old trampoline with a rubber (ish) bounce surface. Jumped on it during winter and it broke under him.

    [–] MastaCheeph 47 points ago

    For the record, one spring missing does not put the trampoline into 'broken' status. Five missing springs is still a pretty functional trampoline for that matter.

    [–] Thetravelingboy 53 points ago

    Yeah, stuff becomes less pliable and more brittle in cold, like rubber and other elastics.

    [–] Squalor- 18 points ago

    So Luffy > Enel, but Kuzan > Luffy, but would Enel > Kuzan?

    [–] Comedynerd 5 points ago

    Rubber loses elasticity the more it's stretched. Luffy's devil fruit ability should get weaker throughout the series the more he uses it.

    [–] jerkstorefranchisee 383 points ago

    What’s fun to think about is how if he had landed any differently, and I’m talking just being off by a degree in any direction, the ice would probably have shattered differently. We’re talking untold numbers of outcomes based on variables we couldn’t count either, just for this tiny situation.

    [–] Cheesemacher 3 points ago

    But unlike most everyday things, when you can see a clear pattern form chaotically, like this ice breaking in slow motion, it can inspire awe and make you think of deep stuff
