Next time on Do It Go Down!?
A lot of people don't think it go down, but it do.
*My highest rated comment ever and no PMs. You're holding out on me Reddit.
I need the actual go down part of this video.
nah man, black dude was about to jump out and you just know he can't swim. There was some serious shit there.
No current, no rushing water sounds. That's an aritificial drop, there's a wall there. You can see the outline of it against the water. They probably just scraped a little bit over the edge of it and then backed up.
It looks like a weir dam.
Even though the water around weirs can often appear relatively calm, they can be extremely dangerous places to boat, swim, or wade, as the circulation patterns on the downstream side—typically called a hydraulic jump— can submerge a person indefinitely. This phenomenon is so well known to canoeists, kayakers, and others who spend time on rivers that they even have a rueful name for weirs: "drowning machines".)
is a picture of what can happen.
TL;DR Those things will kill you.
Edit: Here is a video of a boat being destroyed by one.
Edit 2: Here is a video of a Ken doll being drowned in one. Looks like Ken pissed off some of Barbie's engineering friends.
Well that was fast
I feel like I accomplished something. I'm rather proud of what I've done.
In da lake.
Did the cow make it?
He don't think it be like it is, but it do.
I just love the friendship here; the fishing on the river, the casual singing, filming his friend, even the way he says 'Robert' - its really just a lovely scene.
Pity really, that it do go down.
In my home town a cow fell into one of those once. That cow stayed down there for a week tumbling under the water, then once the gases started to build up inside it, it popped back up and stayed there for another MONTH, rolling and tumbling away on the surface of the water. No one would go down there to fish it out. Since this was also in high summer, the stench was indescribable, you could smell that cow from 2 miles away.
 news article form the BBC
Apparently this weir is notorious -animals fall in upstream and get carried into the weir right in the town centre, and local authorities argue over whose responsibility it is to remove them: http://ulsterherald.com/2014/11/01/more-dead-sheep-trapped-in-strule-weir/

I don't know... my life accomplishments so far are
born a white male
learned to walk
had a comment xposted to srs in 5 minutes or less
I feel very privileged.
That video and for that I thank you.
No, they fucking drowned and the police found them after having been submerged in water for 10 hours but luckily the phone made it and the police could upload their final seconds to youtube.
It looks like it does, in fact, go down.
thats how the cuddlefish do
Well it had plenty of water.
The proper term is fedoral agents.
But surely it got weiry?
It looks like it do, in fact, go down.
Holy Ra, I hate myself now.
Robert needs to improve on his listening skills. If a bro tells you shit is going down, shit's going down.
I feel like I accomplished something
What's even better is when he looked at the little bridge above "should I grab this to slow us down? Nah.."
Wow and just a few minutes after that comment was posted! The legbeard army of Triggerstania is working overtime tonight!
Well that was disappointing. Is there a rest of the video?
is he singing "walking on fighting sodomy on an ononon" ?
Well what happened? did they live or die!? Nice that the firefighters who rescued their bodies posted this video.
I got myself banned by SRS for posting in the thread where they linked to me. =[Born a white grill Learned to walk Graduated Did some finance stuff Got banned from SRS
It's been a good life.
The crazy part of this story is that only one firefighter drowned during this video. Two additional firefighters repeated the same mistake the next day in an attempt to recover the fallen firefighter's body - both drowned.

Nah bro...itll cuddle when i get my hands on it
Almost like a scene from PsychShawn: Walkin' on the fightin' side of me. Gus: Shawn... kinda looks like... Shawn: la da da da da da da! Gus: Shawn! It goes down. Shawn: It don't. It don't go down. Gus: Shawn! It goes down! Shawn: No it don't Gus: It do! (both visibly disturbed) Both: Oh frick!!
Haha. My coworker was laughing hard at this a couple days ago. Apparently he grew up with this guy. I Won't share his name, but "Rob" Is his Step dad. And I don't think there's any more to that video.
I know imma get got, but imma get mine more than i get got doe
That's seriously deep doe
Merle Haggard -
Oh yeah, it got out in the end, walked it off. It's retired now.
is pretty long, but it shows multiple rescue boats being submerged. I grew up with one in my city and they're scary shit for sure.
No small feat getting through life as a white grill. Everybody wants black or stainless steel, because they're "more attractive"
ya ya ya I am lorde!
Your nose might get pregnant.
So let me get this straight, this is a subreddit that takes things people say on reddit that they consider bad in some way, and surrounds them with hypocrisy, intolerance, prejudice and hatred on a scale not even FPH managed? That's... impressive.
That's probably the most morbid thing I've heard, well other than the story of the farm family that had a methane pit they unknowingly all climbed down into after each family member didn't come up.
"legbeard" is not a term I knew I needed in my life. How could I have been so blind?
Damn, that second video took a dark turn . Wait for it.
Alright reddit detectives, lets find this lake and the rest of the video!
Can anyone identify where they are? Or have any pictures of the bit that do go down?
His brain was churnin to come up with something. Atleast he moved, I would have just accepted my fate: "Welp, this is my life now."
Getting posted to SRS is like a badge of honour. Congrats u/LuckyTins!
You are this threads only hope of finding out what happened!!!
I was floating in an inner tube down a local creek one day, something we did a few times a year because it was free and I was a broke student, towing my cooler of beer lashed in a second inner tube. I found myself ejected from the main current and went into a sorta dead area where scummy stuff collects. It smelled bad there. I went to push off what I thought was a bank but it wasn't. No, it was a submerged dead bloated cow, and when I pushed my hand went inside the cow, and the accumulated gasses that smelled horrid came bubbling out like a giant fart. I got away as fast as I could and didn't feel clean for about a week.
I don't know why, but your comment really made me examine the situation and the actions he took, and it's got me in stitches. I guess it's hard to truly appreciate it all when you watch it, such a short clip, even having watched it twice. Also, the look on his face there, it's amazing.
edit: I ended up watching it a bunch more times, and it kept making me laugh. I don't think I've ever gotten so much value out of a video, the laugh to seconds ratio is insane.
Fuck the cow,
This is not how you get cheese.
Russian family had a potato cellar, some which went bad, one family member went down to check something, passed out, then the next one went down to check on him, passed out, until everyone in the family apart from one little girl was down there dead or dying, none of them made it.
I say you he dead.
If you want to stick with the theme, heres a similar story from Northern California a few years back.
Dog gets lost in the surf on the beach, and a kid goes in after him, when the kid gets in trouble, the boys girlfriends dad jumps in, when dads gets in trouble mom jumps in.
They all die, except the dog who was fine and just swam out unscathed.
The kids girlfriend watched her boyfriend and both parents die while standing helpless on the shore.
I read that as triggermania like wrestlemania and spent a solid 3 minutes just envisioning WWE style matches with all the stereotypical SJWs going at each other in the ring. Just a 300 pound, purple haired, asexual, transkin spider person taking on an average looking, straight white guy. White guys about to win but wait... Cena horns blare and a legendary, white knight neck beard comes wheezing out and is tossed a fedora like stone cold would get a beer and just absolutely destroys that CIS shitlord. Then the whole event was cancelled for ableism because not everyone could get in the ring and/or was triggered by rings, wrestling or manias...It was all so real
You're about to be on a roll.
Sounds like a game show your mom would be perfect for.
Don't worry, while le Fedoral Reddit Army always finds someone, it is never the people they are looking for. In fact, if they are looking for you, it's the rest of us who should be worried.
Oh look the worst sub for hate and brigading is here and the admins continue to ignore it.
Are you ancient Egyptian?
We know you're overweight, but there's no need to be so self-deprecating.
I swear to God I thought he was singing
"Walking on the fightin sodomy."
too much water can actually kill.

Fucking cliffhanger. We need more.
Sounds like a pretty exciting summer. Did anyone go down to the 'ol cow and throw stuff at it?
are you fucking serious? "did you just come up with that." i'll have you know that we are a very legitimate and not fake organization, we're also important, too.
WTF was he singing?
THAT YOU KNOW
THIS SHOW GOT CANCELLED SOMEHOW
It do go down.
I was hoping it was this before I clicked. Thank you.
Not to defend them because I know that will get downvoted immediately, but they obviously get the joke they just don't think it's funny
I get the
Outlaw Country! Woo!
...and I was a damn good swimmer.
The problem was, you weren't a good dam swimmer.
Is /u/RamsesThePigeon an ancient Egyptian... hmm, lemme think...
EDIT: Upon review, my team and I have determined that /u/RamsesThePigeon is, at the very least, an Egyptian in spirit.

See "Dam Sliding".
A sloping drop can produce a stronger recirculating current than a vertical drop, because horizontal momentum causes this kind of current.
A sloping weir causes the water accumulate momentum as it flows over it. A recirculating current forms when there is slow, deep water on the downstream side of the weir, and the momentum of the fast-moving water is unable to push that slow water downstream. Instead, the water is turned back towards the weir.
illustrates the science of how that happens.
This video shows what happens in real life. Notice how slowly the water is moving on the upstream side of the weir, just as in OP's video. The boat is going for a gentle float down the river.
The water speeds up due to the slope of the weir. It hits the slow water downstream of the weir and cycles back, trapping and destroying the boat.
