Walk across the water like this
by Mark R
The first time I saw this image of a man walking on the water, I just assumed it was a special effect.
There is a video of it after the jump, and it’s either a grandiose hoax or the next extreme sport. I can’t help but want to believe that it is the latter.
The video explains that this act of walking across the water is done without divine intervention from Jesus, but a combination of speed, plus water repellent shoes. Yes, apparently water-resistant shoes make some difference, but some of it is the angle that you approach the water.
It looks like every day these people push themselves to go further each time, like the skipping of a stone.
I think they are using the same method of running across the water as The Flash. In the comics, he is able to perform this super-feat, and I always just brushed it off as inferior comic-book physics. Who would have thought that it was rooted in actual fact?
Who also would have thought that people could run on water like this in reality? It really does make you believe in miracles, at least the ones that you can probably explain.
I suppose it won’t be long before one of these guys manages to run across a river or a lake. I’m sure we’ll be seeing more of that.
