Walk on Water

This one goes out to my brother-in-law Eric. Also my good buddy Todd, who is majoring in Physics. I await your comments.

  1. Wow! I’m sure I can’t run fast enough. But I do have some great water-proof shoes. 🙂

  2. Very interesting. It looks legit. I read some time ago of a lizard that can run on water, and a quick internet search confirmed my memory. The lizard has the advantage of being much lighter, and probably of having a higher foot surface area. I wonder if increasing the footprint of the shoe would get you more distance, or just make it harder to run. Also, one of these times, the jet ski is going to pull them over while on land and drag them into the water.

    I’m also curious to know how much extra distance water-proof shoes get you. It makes sense to me that it would help, but part of me feels like it shouldn’t be a huge difference. But when you only get ten or so steps at most, each step probably is huge.

    So those are some of my thoughts for you, David.
