After the antics of today, I've been prompted to write a negative review. I purchased these water balloons a while back because I wanted to throw them at my housemates when they were sitting in the garden. The first attempt went great, I threw it out the window, it landed on the bench and soaked 2 of them, BOOM. I then went back to get another one, filled it up and it burst in my hands as I was carrying it, leaving myself and the carpet absolutely soaked. I stayed clear for a little while.
But a couple of weeks ago, I decided to give them another try. My housemate was outside, right below our second story window, and he would never expect it. I filled a water balloon up, opened the window, threw it down and it bounced off of his chest, onto the ground and it still didn't pop. How is that even possible?
Fast forward to today, I had a water balloon left over from a night where I was going to throw it at my housemate but I decided it was to harsh, and I wanted to throw it at him. I messaged him and told him I had a parcel for him. He suspected something but he started coming up the stairs anyway. I threw it at him, it bounced off of him, hit the floor and, again, didn't explode. So he now had a water balloon to throw back at me. I then had to get another water balloon, open up a big bottle of water and squeeze the water into it for a quick refill. We then called a temporary cease fire as I went down a level in the house, but he was waiting as I came out of the bathroom. He threw it, it hit the wall and FINALLY burst. I then took the opportunity and I launched a water balloon at him, but it bounced off him, hit the wall, then the floor and it didn't burst. He then grabbed it, I ran over, and after we both had hold of it, trying to burst it over one another, it finally bursts.
I'm going to keep trying with these and I'm planning to launch 10 of them out the window at once on my housemate the next time he is in the garden. If it goes well, I will change my review.
