We need more of these rockets
By - cyan1618
Anyone else more concerned with the fact this is flaming over all that dry grass?
Yeah for a second I thought this might turn into a disaster of gender-reveal proportions.
tell me you're from California without telling me you're from California ...
Well, if you insist...*presses the big blue button*
What ended up happening to them?
Well that's a new turn of phrase I'm gonna use almost everyday now
It's okay. They planned ahead and used a *water*melon. If my math is correct, this should cancel out the fire.
Yup. Came here to post that. This video is this Californian's nightmare: we lose half the state to someone's crappy TikTok.
Or some idiot lady boiling bear piss.
Only you can prevent forest fires
It was the trial run for a gender reveal
My thoughts exactly.
Well it is a watermelon, build in firesupression. Nothing can happen
Nothing like a rocket with a max speed of 5 mph. Woooeee!
Oh, and I bet you think your watermelon is so much better
On a string, no less.
Does your watermelon go 5 mph? Thought so /s
Don't know why, but the Thunderbird 2 suddenly popped up in my head🤔, Thunderbirds are go! 😎
And that's how forrest fires are born.
I see they leaked hamas rocket tech
*$150,000 Iron Dome swoops in, smashing $5 melon to smithereens.
Congress gives another billion.*
Was the watermelon harmed in the making of this ridiculous video?
It is an American watermelon, of course it was armed!
Rocket melon, burning out his fuse up here aloneee
And I think it’s gonna be a melon lon time
It's a watermelon that turned into a rocket, yeah it's kinda slow at first but have you seen a rocket take off?
It's just some weird sticks but it's a watermelon going that fast.
How isn't it at least somewhat interesting
/r/mildlyinteresting would like a word with you
Get the stick out your arse mate. It's fucking boring.
I mean, this is r/Damnthatsinteresting not
Eat your heart out Elon!
What is that, some kind of kamikaze watermelon?
Zeeky Boogy Doog!
Wow, most useless thing i have ever seen.
Slam one of those in your butthole and jump on a skateboard once
Be the change you want to see in the world, bud.
Would've been more interesting if it just exploded.
We need less of these low rent posts.
I'm now questioning what I always thought a rocket does and is. I'm questioning the absolute existence of the universe!!!
Slow and anticlimactic af
I wonder how much time and effort are put into some of these videos. Do they know it sucks while filming and just think "ah hell I've already gone this far, might as well post it"
Its not possible!
No, its necessary.
Blue Origin's new prototype.
North Korea over here taking notes.
I think I'm going to start recording speed in melons now.
That rocket traveled at 6 meloseconds. That's a good melon speed.
After Taco Bell……
.... thermite? can't think of many reactions that look like that and would take a sparkler to start
those are just a bunch of sparklers
I think thermite would just melt/burn a hole in the watermelon, wouldn't it? I'm curious as well
It would yes
almost certainly but not instantly and especially not if its a composition made specifically for thrust. maybe. i really dont know
This is why other countries hate us
The future is now.
Ugh. Taco Bell.
Bro we going to mars throw watermelons
I've done something similar to that after a night of taco bell
Me when taco bell
*The vehicle is now reaching Max-Q, point of maximum dynamic pressure*
We've had an anomelony.
To be honest, that was boring, so many shots, I thought it was going to be awesome.
Disappointing ending...Much like my sex life.
How is it generating thrust? I mean, is it just the directed burning of the sparklers? I’d like to understand the physics.
expanding gasses make melon go brrr
Great way to start a wildfire.
We need more?
Going where no melon has gone before...
Patent this before Lockheed Martin steals it.
They wasted half their fuel by cheaping out on a rocket nozzle.
Dose any hates these bots just reposting in random popular subreddits like I see 5 different posts by bots with random titles like a computer generated title reposting something popular just to get karma
This is f#cking stupid
oh so that's how the wildfire started... lol
Andddddd then a forest fire. 🤦♂️
This is an incredibly helpful post, it reminds me that sorting by New can be a waste of time.
It’s a forest fire waiting to happen.
Haha, melon go brrrrt!
Attach the watermelon to the end of a pole, boom, DS3 Gargoyle Flame Hammer.
Wow what a waste
are you trying to start a wildfire? cuz that's how you start a wildfire.
When u boost a watermellon in G-Mod
What did this experiment get you ?
Wasting food and showing off on social media is bad.
Looks like a wild fire
Just burnt the whole damn field
But we really don't
I’m really surprised at how much energy it had to build up before moving.
When did Gallagher join NASA?
This is the new solution for getting rid of Murder Hornet nests.
Or we don’t
If your taking over a country I suggest using watermelon
Yeah I don’t that’s all watermelon juice energy.
Anyone know what they put in there?
Elon has entered the chat
Are those sparklers?
Not only its a rocket but it also has three stages!
Imagine when aliens arrive they come in giant watermelons.
Elon is not happy about this.
“After we put my granny’s house fire out….”
try installing the nozzle next time - the speed will be even higher
I bet this violates some bullshit law in the USA
No we don’t
Watermelon poops flaming chunk of metal, then scoots away.
Wow, looks like that was going a blistering 6 mph at least.
6 mph is 9.66 km/h
How big would the watermelon need to be to get to Mars?
Is that how the fires started in California
I'm surprised he didn't set the weeds on fire. We don't need more of these.
If this is done the slightest bit wrong, you're gonna have a very large fruit salad bomb.
This flight was brought to you by modelo
I had no idea watermelons were so flammable.
What a fine example of a single stage MelonJet™
0:08 wont it burn the cord?
0:16 when will it start?
0:22 that is pretty slow
0:35 OH SHIIII
And it slipped the surly bonds of earth, to touch the face of god.
North Koreas space program
Watch out, Elon. These guys are coming after you.
Guys call Elon musk with some great brain storming going on
Next time wrap the sparklers with duck tape real right if you want to see something interesting
To stand so close you think he’s never seen a sparkler bomb
Me after a night of Taco Bells.
This something that Wild E. Coyote would make.
This is how we will get to Mars.
Suck it, Elon!
Wonder how that brush fire started?!
They did Tesla dirty leaking the new rocket like that.
Elon's using rocket fuel to get to Mars. But I got watermelone to get me to the stars
Why does everything get so dark?!
I wanna see the melon damnit!
Elon musk wants to know your location ✅
"roads? where we're going we don't need roads."
Was it a boy or girl?
Needs more 80s music.
I see way too much dry grass and open flame to find this interesting, and pissed off at the unnecessary risk taking is a shitty substitute emotion.
We humans, are explorers. Wanderers in a vast cosmos.
Really cool recipe for roasted watermelon
Ah so this why you run faster after eating taco bell
Happens to me when I eat hot Cheetos
What's good here
Not the Vindaloo, trust me
It's interesting how u can make a flamethrower from something that is 90 percent water
Yes president Putin this is the latest icbm melon with complete destructive capabilities .. lol
Jokes people just jokes …. But also who read that in a Russian accent because I wrote it with one and I’m Australian… :) lol
Would have helped
Did this fucking melon switch gears?
*me after taco bell*
Fire safety. What's that?
Nasa thinks their all fancy with their big expensive rockets. Look what they need to mimic our normal human power
do we really need more of these tho
Alcohol filled watermelon?
If that’s real, that’s pretty amazing
CSP-Chinese Space Program.
The grass is green, you should touch it people.. It is clearly NOT a wildfire risk, and this is just entertaining and amusing. Yall need to chill in the comments fo realz. More effort was put into trying to put a smile on yo face than was put into yall generating derisive and salty comments. And for that I commend OP. Also, IF you read this OP... Why is it burning AFTER the sparklers fall out? Is there additional fuel IN the watermelon? Or some magical fuckery I am unaware of? And ignore most these butthurt assclowns, they just need something to mock or deride to feel better about how much their life sucks... much like I am doing RN with their bullshit... Crap.. I have become what I sought to destroy.
We need less of these posts.
Wasting food for the Lulz. What a shame.
