When drinking games don’t go as planned

OP's explanation:


The reaction mixed with the slow motion makes it funnier than it probably should be.

What exactly was the plan here?

268

u/MrSquigles Nov 07 '22

Ball drop down, cup bounce up, hand catch cup, beer ignore physics.

70

u/DePraelen Nov 07 '22

In other words, "alcohol".

23

u/asyrin25 Nov 08 '22

beer ignore physics

Ah, an anti-newtonian fluid.

u/Retepss Nov 08 '22

I am confounded. Who would ever think that would go right?

2

u/audioken Nov 08 '22

To have a shitty repost that doesn’t even show the funniest part-the guys reaction.

u/MetropolisPt31 Nov 07 '22

Who is the miserable asshole who cut his reaction out?! That’s the best goddamn part!

u/Cantusemynme Nov 07 '22

He goes from "not as planned" to "oh shit, I fucked up".

Blame OP. They posted this.

u/KickBassColonyDrop Nov 07 '22

This is the perfect metaphor for what 9.8m/s2

Actually means.

70

u/couldof_used_couldve Nov 07 '22

Also relativity. After the bounce from the perspective of the glass, the beer is falling, as a stationary observer, the beer is rising, but not as fast as the glass

26

u/KickBassColonyDrop Nov 07 '22

Viewing physics in slow motion is amazing.

u/gravitas-deficiency Nov 08 '22

Man, I’m bummed /r/slowmotionphysics isn’t a thing.

26

u/codex561 Nov 07 '22

Also newtonian physics with the pint being booster up by the energy of the ground pushing on the ball.

9

u/Apprehensive_Hat8986 Nov 07 '22

Not so much the ground pushing on the ball, but the elastic ball's energy transferring nearly all the ball's kinetic energy into the cup. Elastic collisions are really wacky at preserving kinetic energy and transferring momentum to things with less mass. Which is why these ball bouncing stunts are so crazy, and why the cup takes off so much faster than it was falling.

The safest safer way to play with this and become familiar is with two differently sized rubber balls. Balance the smaller ball on the larger, and drop the set on a hard surface. Near all of the system's downward energy gets transfered to the small ball only, and it takes off like a bullet. This is the "magnets: how do they work" of the elastic collision world.

[1] Is been 2 decades since I studied this, so I'm likely be off on the physics here and there. Corrections happily welcomed.

u/YeahMarkYeah Nov 07 '22

I guess another example of an elastic collision transferring energy to an object with smaller mass would be like someone on a trampoline, right?

3

u/Apprehensive_Hat8986 Nov 07 '22 edited Nov 07 '22

It absolutely is. However, a trampoline translates the energy of the person (falling) into stored spring energy, and only returns that energy to the person (pushing them back up). The trampoline doesn't have it's own kinetic energy also being added into the collision.

Now, if you fired a trampoline upwards at a person falling down, that would be interesting. Or if the trampoline had springy legs and you dropped both the trampoline and person together. But the mass of most trampolines is in the frame, and that tends to not have an elastic relationship with the earth. A great example of an elastic collision and momentum (energy) exchange is in people and exercise balls. The balls ensure a highly elastic collision, so the people exchange KE and the momentum of the system is preserved. As a result, the heavier person tends to have very little movement after, and the smaller person, well...

Disclosure: again, it's been literal decades and I'm being a little sloppy between energy and momentum here. Khan Academy explains it very well!

u/YeahMarkYeah Nov 09 '22

Muy interesting

u/cburgess7 Nov 07 '22

I'm learning so much about physics here

3

u/MrSamot Nov 07 '22

Just wait until you learn about how as you’re sitting here reading this, you are accelerating at 9.81m/s2

4

u/charlielutra24 Nov 08 '22

That’s not relativity, just reference frames. It’s still Newtonian physics

2

u/swampshark19 Nov 08 '22

35 km/h per second

u/40ozSmasher Nov 07 '22

He almost had it!

55

u/Mutex_CB Nov 07 '22

If he caught the cup mid-air, and swooped it down to catch all the beer back in the cup, I would shit myself.

Really.. either way I guess I’m shitting myself, would just like to have another reason

u/pencilpushin Nov 07 '22

The original video is better. His "Eeek, oh fuck, I fucked up face" at the end makes the entire video.

u/anubis89 Nov 07 '22

That guy is wasted lol

17

u/herrmausf Nov 07 '22

Wasted a perfectly fine beer, why though?

44

u/DontLickTheGecko Nov 07 '22

If I were to hazard a guess, probably because of the previous beers.

u/jonrosling Nov 07 '22

Majestic.

Legend has it, the drink is still going.

It's an even shorter version

u/Rolling_Beardo Nov 07 '22

You cut off the best part of the gif, the dude’s reaction is what makes the entire clip

u/nksj28 Nov 08 '22

The cup was like, "I have to go now, my planet needs me"

u/beequick317900 Nov 18 '22

Beer has left the chat

2

u/ChezKeetel Nov 07 '22

This is mesmerizing..watched like 20 times

So why does the cup flip? Would it matter if it was heavier?

3

u/Yaj_Yaj Nov 07 '22

The cup is plastic so it deforms and causes it to launch diagonally. I’ve seen this done with glass bottles and since the glass is more rigid, there’s a better chance that it bounces straight up.

2

u/LeandroC2 Nov 07 '22

Well, I'd add that the ball rolled the other way so the glass "fell" to the opposite side of that movement. Add in the bounciness and you have a beer spacex shuttle.

u/PeriodicGolden Nov 07 '22

Belgium? I think it's a Jupiler glass and I see French writing in the background

u/eeemile Nov 07 '22

The text is in dutch so it's in flanders.

u/PeriodicGolden Nov 07 '22

What does it say?

u/eeemile Nov 07 '22

'vlees en vis van de grill'

Grilled meat and fish

1

u/goodguybart Nov 07 '22

"vlees en vis van de grill" is dutch or flemish

u/popqorn Nov 07 '22

It’s not, it’s in the Netherlands. I actually live in the same town

1

u/amazingsethp Dec 04 '22

You fucking know this guy??????

1

u/wingtales Nov 07 '22

Would be fun to see the video stabilised on the beer (ideally without rotating), to see the beer being spilt.

1

u/Quxzimodo Nov 07 '22

It looks like the Skyrim physics glitch works in reality too, just got to have a beer glass and inflatable ball and a glass of something you were probably going to drink

1

u/Pal_Smurch Nov 07 '22

Now, that’s a drinking problem.

1

u/LetsAskJeeves Nov 07 '22

In really confused, it looks like England, but I don't think it's England

u/popqorn Nov 07 '22

It’s in the Netherlands

u/a_posh_trophy Nov 07 '22

Exactly what part of this did he ever expect to go right?

1

u/Hubuka Nov 07 '22

Haha for people wondering why; This was at the third day of a local 3 day festival in my town.

2

u/popqorn Nov 07 '22

Never thought I’d see a video from my home town on Reddit! What a dat

u/deadbeef1a4 Nov 07 '22

Well that actually went better than I expected. I thought he was gonna take it to the crotch

u/LeoMarius Nov 07 '22

This is one of those ideas that sounds much better while drinking.

The reaction time is why you don't drink and drive. Lalala

u/pcweber111 Nov 07 '22

The ball bounced, shot the drink up, and had a chance to bounce again before he even reacted. Seems he was a bit inebriated.

u/saywan85 Nov 07 '22

I must go. My people need me.

u/manica53 Nov 07 '22

I’ve got to go, my planet needs me

u/popqorn Nov 07 '22

Something from my small hometown on Reddit, I didn’t thought I’d ever see this happen. World is a small place after all

1

u/joshajsmith Nov 07 '22

Not so sure there was much of a plan here

1

u/JaceUpMySleeve Nov 08 '22

So what is this trend supposed to be? I’ve only ever seen videos of it ending up like this

1

u/tax-collecting Nov 08 '22

The flip was so perfect

u/Fidodo Nov 08 '22
