Popular Science

Trampolines may be the bane of safety-conscious parents around the world, but hero uncle and Youtube channel star Mark Rober took the daring fun of jumping on a trampoline up a notch. He and his nephews filled 1,500 water balloons, placed them in the center of the trampoline, and embraced life. We have a feeling we'll be seeing a sequel with 3,000 balloons soon enough, but enjoy this until then.

In all seriousness, though, please don't try this at home.
