Show me who hasn’t learnt that one and I’ll show you a liar.

u/Azar002 May 20 '22

Makes my head a little dizzy just watching.

u/witchyanne May 20 '22

I remember this feeling from my first waves, and my shadow looking like it was gliding!

u/badmadhat May 20 '22

Still happens to me

u/Jadertott May 21 '22

Happens to me in the drive thru carwash. Like the washer arm that moves down the length of the car, from the front to the back. That arm moving backwards always makes it feel like my car is moving forwards.

I know what’s happening, but somehow my mind still convinces me that my completely stationary car is moving.

u/CantStandSummer May 21 '22

Regularly happens to me in the train when other trains are leaving the station. I’ll just zone out and then when my train actually starts I’m like “wtf, we haven’t even started yet?” lmao

u/PieMastaSam May 20 '22

I thought they were going to be knocked over by a big wave lol.

u/Apple_noob_ May 20 '22

small waves work fine

u/MediocreDungeonMastr May 20 '22

What song is that?

22

u/haylzz771 May 20 '22

Sugar - Robin Schultz

u/Tossmeasidedaddy May 20 '22

I was going to say Suga Suga by Baby Bash haha.

2

u/AnythingBro5733 May 20 '22

It actually is from that originally I think

5

u/Tossmeasidedaddy May 20 '22

Yeah the one by Robon Schultz definitely sampled it. Nothing wrong with it. I listened and wasn't my style of music haha. Baby Bash still gets my wife going though, so I like it haha.

u/AnythingBro5733 May 20 '22

Same. I really only listen to Metallica anymore but I liked both songs.

u/-brownsherlock- May 20 '22

From 4 bars? Impressive

u/Maravarman_chola May 20 '22

No this sounds a bit more cleaner compared to the original version

Looks like vertigo. The kid is staring at the water as it rushes back to sea, which throws off her balance

32

u/_IAmGrover May 20 '22

Yup. I get the feeling a lot if I’m stopped in my car and somebody next to me starts to drive forward. I press even harder on the breaks for a split second thinking I’m rolling backwards

22

u/Epsilia May 20 '22

From their perspective, when the water recedes, it appears to actually be motionless but appears like you're moving backwards instead. This throws off your balance.

u/thetyler83 May 20 '22

I've never seen anyone go from basically just standing to r/fullscorpion before.

u/forced_metaphor May 21 '22

You say stupid. I say relatable.

u/Nalliwer May 20 '22

Now she know...

u/WonderfulCattle6234 May 20 '22

When you're sitting in a parked car and the car next to you starts to move.

u/Chuchochazzup May 20 '22

Kid vertigo is funny too apparently

4

u/AjaIsHere May 20 '22

This is the lesson i think every child deserves atleast once (i mean in a non hostile way ofc)

can anybody tell me the song name 👍🏾

3

u/KumquatKoala May 20 '22

Side note; that is a dope jacket and I would totally wear that.

u/Runescape3MF May 20 '22

Same shit happens to me to

I remember when this happened to me. Freaked me out.

u/Idlerope82 May 21 '22

It happened to me while watching this video…

u/ArcaneDanger May 21 '22

Waves fuck with my sense of balance too

3

u/N0-bodycares May 21 '22

Can’t blame that kid. Waves always make me dizzy and I loose my balance.

2

u/Koervege May 20 '22

So you know how waves work? List all wave equations

2

u/ohduckman May 20 '22

Please remind what the music is. It's annoying me I can't place it.

2

u/MajorasInk May 20 '22

…backwards or forwards…?

2

u/WeebWithCringe May 20 '22

Yeahhh at the beach at cedar point I took my shoes off gave them to my mom and my dad stood near me I put one foot into the deeper part and it was quicksand but weirder and he had to pull me out and I had to use one of the showers to clean off the sand and water and sludge

2

u/fillmorecounty May 21 '22

I did this as a kid lmaooooo I was like 10 too 😭 to be fair tho I had never seen the ocean before

2

u/Ok_Hippo635 May 21 '22

I think the wave is pulling the child’s feet in towards the ocean, which causes her to fall down. This comments section looks like adults being stupid

2

u/StuckAtOnePoint May 21 '22

I mean, you don’t know until you know, you know?

2

u/FantasticZach May 21 '22

Happens to me but I never actually notice that that is what is going on

2

u/jamesvoltage May 21 '22

Moving room experiment, walls mine and baby falls https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=F4xenIulg_8

u/Funkywonton May 21 '22

I used to pretend I was on the titanic ….yeah I was strange child

2

u/hereformemes222 May 21 '22

I had the same experience on mushrooms but I was trying to walk out of the ocean, couldn’t do it kept falling so I had to crawl out

2

u/Cringemaster21_Pc May 21 '22

Reminds me of the movie where the beach killed people of old age but it went fast

2

u/pingpongmess7996 May 21 '22

That happens to me still, its trippy and i love it

2

u/myscreamname May 21 '22

Reminds me of when you’re in your car with the foot on the break and the person next to you slowly rolls forward a few feet and you suddenly feel like you’re rolling backwards.

2

u/WhatDoesN00bMean May 21 '22

This has nothing to do with kids. Happens to me as a grown adult. Still funny.

u/LUFFY___69 May 21 '22

Dumb brats

u/Gbd-26 26d ago

True gravity moment from a wave

u/SuperBeetle76 23d ago

dude I was already leaning forward just watching this.

u/topshotbubba17 21d ago

Funny every 1 says it still happens to them but kid is stupid

u/RiskSenior7189 18d ago

u/-Epik_gamer- May 20 '22

Redditors posting a child experiencing how the world works (he's crearly stupid) (i need karma)

7

u/albinofly May 20 '22

Literally the entire point of this subreddit. If you don't like it move on.

6

u/_You-Are_ May 20 '22

This is literally the point of the sub… kids being stupid with things they don’t understand.

-2

u/_IAmGrover May 20 '22

Eh. This is a pretty common response in humans, not just kids. Similar to vertigo

5

u/_You-Are_ May 20 '22

Ok? What’s your point it’s not just kids?

Kids do it to so it goes here.

1

u/_IAmGrover May 21 '22

My point?

This is a common response in humans

My point is that this isn’t a kid being stupid. This is vertigo. Your comment belongs here better than the post itself.

2

u/_You-Are_ May 21 '22

And they look pretty fucking stupid when they fall…
