    30 years ago I might have tried that, but I no longer bounce. The pool is way too small of a target. Brings a whole new meaning to the phrase, Aim Small.

    Next to a lake after a few beers and some buddies rooting me on there is no doubt in my mind that I would try it.

    Real or fake I don't know but if it is real, alot of work went into testing with a comparable weight dummy.
    Or, maybe he is the dummy.
    I'd do it aimed into the ocean though......

    If I did it into the ocean, I'd hit the only "floater" around.

    Fake. I saw a news report on it yesterday. He slides down the ramp part-way, and is caught by a rope tied around his waist. Flying through the air is all animation. He drops into the pool from a platform. They edit the platform out and splice all the pieces together. Done as a commercial for MicroSoft Germany, to show what kind of neat things can be done with computer.

    We do that all the time.:eek:

    No, it's real Alpo. I checked the most reliable source extant, my co-worker Chester "Always" Wright.

    It's too bad I had my wife and son watch this before it was pointed out that it was fake. I still would try it if like stated above, I had some beers in me and a BIG body of water....and maybe some sides on that slide.:)
