Reminds me of the demo with the train car where they put a vacuum on it until it dramatically collapsed.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zz95_VvTxZM

It's easy to do in person - take a soda can with just a little water in the bottom. Put a torch to the bottom until the water is hot and boiling. Then overturn the can, putting the open top down into a bucket of water. The steam inside the can condenses creating a huge vacuum at the can collapses.

I approve of this experiment’s high woops-quotient.

Apparently, the only thing keeping it stuck to the water are a pair of pedal-controlled canards on the nose. If you zoom in, you can juuuust see the top of them moving up and down.

Right after he hits a wave, the canards fly up. It’s presumed the bump knocked his feet off the pedals.



Edit: to clarify, since it’s poorly worded, the canards aren’t doing the sticking, they’re providing the downforce which does the sticking... also, since the camera is behind the canards, it looks like they’re popping down after the wave. That’s their ass-end. Their noses are popping up.

From what I recall of Final Destination, yes.

That's not what a tsunami looks like. That's just a big wave.

A tsunami is basically a drastic drop in water level, followed by a massive flood.

If it was a tsunami, it would have almost assuredly killed whoever took the video.

There’s a piece of (inland) footage from the 2011 tsunami I can’t find. The link I posted at the time is dead.

I can only describe it as shockingly “non-violent”. It looks survivable.

Until about three minutes in, when entire buildings just... float away.



However, I do feel like I’ve seen footage of monster tsunami waves breaking on shore.
