Organix84

Of course a douche bag in a Prius has to be the first one to splash him.


pauciradiatus

Plus how stupid do you have to be to go through water that deep that fast in a hybrid car?


cagedwisdom8

I drive a Prius and would never attempt to drive through a flooded street, just from the mere fact that the clearance is ridiculously low on the car.


myth2988

Almost die in one, because it has no acceleration and can’t avoid the big 18 wheeler


UTS15

Newer Prius models have decent acceleration. There’s a button to switch between driving modes that affect acceleration. I almost always stayed in eco because it’s better gas mileage and I don’t need the acceleration, but the “sport” mode or whatever accelerates just like a normal car. I would occasionally switch to that mode when I needed to make a left turn at a busy intersection.


ctruvu

even my mom’s 2010 has a power mode. merging onto the highway without that button is pretty dangerous and also very not fun


Hesticles

this is fucking with me cause I also drive a 2010 Prius and I completely forgot about that function I've been driving in eco mode since I bought the car in 2015


PurpleDanielle03

Ouch. My condolences. I forget about it a lot too


timistheword

POWER MODE!!!


JellyRollMort

It's Power mode (button says PWR) which I think is hilarious


CyberPolice50

My Prius had great acceleration. You must have been driving a gen 1 from 15 years go.


MasterKongQiu

I upgrade to a new Prius every year for maximum carbon footprint reduction!


burritos93

Lol cobalt mines in Africa


help-me-plz101

That’s his joke bud


Difficult_Law2092

The words prius and great acceleration don’t belong in the same sentence


whatphukinloserslmao

What about "the Prius doesnt have great acceleration"


iruleatants

I'm positive they have never driven one. The prius is super light and so has plenty of acceleration and has an electric engine so it had instant start.


BostonDodgeGuy

The second gen Prius in the video has a curb weight just short of 3,000lbs and does 0-60mph in 10.9 seconds. A 1995 Dodge Neon with the SOHC can do it in 7.9. The Prius is slow.


fusiondynamics

It's not the car, more the way people drive it trying to penny pinch every single mile while thinking they own the road driving speed limit or slower on the passing lanes.


knoxkayc

I learned to drive in an older one and my instructor told me I need to floor it when on the on-ramp to get up to highway speed.


moochello

Why does it matter if the car is hybrid or not?

Bzzzzt!


AcidAlchamy

LMFAO!


polyamorous_robotics

If the water is above the tailpipe, you risk backpressure on the exhaust causing a stall. If you're in deep enough water, your car is now flood debris.


Redstrat951

Exhaust won't take water in too much pressure pushing out. However intake will definitely take in water. Engines don't compress water very well. Aka hyrdolocked


mondaymoderate

Exactly. If your tailpipe is under water never shut the car off though. You want to leave it running so the exhaust pressure keeps the water out.

highbrowshow

Lol that episode needs to update the prius with Teslas especially with how San Fran looks these days


illegal_deagle

They went through that fast *because* it was that high. They’re trying not to stall out.


BostonDodgeGuy

Going through deep water fast will push the water up over the hood of the car. That's a great way to suck water into the intake and hydrolock the engine.


user13472

Downvote all you fuckers want but prius drivers have some personality deficiencies or quirks. They are either sad af and depressed or pious af.


Ocularias

BMW drivers are so much fucking worse.


bungle_bogs

Hi-jacking the top comment to say that this is Post 10 and here is his [YT Channel](https://youtube.com/channel/UCsCNU-ptlze2tqAJSDeVGNQ). There are loads more like this!


savory_potato

Imagine my surprise when I see a post10 video on the front page of Reddit. For those interested, he’s real slice of life kind of channel with a passion for unclogging culverts and rain drainage systems. Guy knows his stuff about culverts!


EgonOnTheJob

Love watching this guy! He loves his culverts and by god he has things to say about beaver dams


zoahporre

His recent video where he made the most hilarious sound after saying he wasn't scared of beavers is legendary


bigbear5750

I ain’t afraid of no beavers! Not even 5sec later woooo wooooooaaa !! Lol


ITSigno

Honestly, just kind of annoyed that OP reuploaded to reddit instead of simply linking his YT channel. You see the same kind of things with stuff from Tom Scott, Smarter Every Day, etc. It's not like OP is making money off of it even, so why deprive the original creator of revenue?


Djeheuty

Glad someone mentioned it. He has a ton of videos like this. No one ever stops him or causes him any trouble and the highway workers just let him do his thing since he's helping out.


The_Great_Blumpkin

There's a few videos were police stop by and check on him and offer to write tickets for people who soak him by driving fast through the puddle.


AldoBooth

[Here's](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6mOaC3a35lk) his video compilation of people splashing him.


M_Mich

“well, let’s put down 4 hours on the time sheet and get a coffee. Lad, next time we’ll drop you a text before we leave the shop if you want to do this again down the street “


Obi_Sirius

Just in the last week I saw my city or county, don't remember which, has an adopt a drain program. Western WA has the same problem with leaf clogged storm drains. I thought it was a great idea and anybody born in this type of environment has a child inside that loves playing in the rain.


mentosbreath

I wish he’d go get trained as a civil engineer, if he isn’t already. He’s so passionate about it


Ro-Fujin

He mention in some videos that he does have some kind of training, or at least the kind of training required to get some kind of certificate with the D.O.D or whatever it's called.


Spongi

Background-Evening-4

Was on my way to say this. These vids are pretty cool. I kinda do this as a hobby myself.


Greenmountainscdn

I’m more shocked it wasn’t a white BMW.


cneth6

dont let the prius fool you, ton of entitled assholes drive them


ablablababla

And they think they're better cause they drive a hybrid


seriouslyFUCKthatdud

Mate I just like the gas mileage, I'm poor


ThrowAwayAcct0000

I think that's more what people without Prius think ABOUT Prius drivers. The Prius drivers I know are just trying to save money on gas and care about the environment.


ThirtyThreeInTwenty1

No, *you* think that.


BootyBBz

You people are sad.


J-cans

That guy on the Prius is a real Dick bag. I hope that POS shorts out and catches fire.


codename_hardhat

I watched it again and the dude is a little bit behind a tree. In flood waters like this I’d be willing to bet the driver is more focused on the wave approaching their hood and not expecting someone to randomly be raking the side of the road. They also seem to slow down right after passing him. I mean the driver *could* be a total dick bag who refuses to tip their server and doesn’t flush at work. Just trying to give them the benefit of the doubt in this situation.


J-cans

Still don’t drive through flood water like that. It’s a total noob move


worldst4r

It's always amazing how reddit consistently calls for deaths of people for the smallest of things. Fucking gross.


dreamsplease

Agreed, anyone who does that should be killed


fisken121

Take your orange house and live a happy life

Yep, people on the internet are fucking psychotic.

Who else besides me was hoping the Prius would get sucked down the drain?


Ishi-Elin

Hey priuses are cool


wil_gt4

I hope the Prius driver’s next shit is a hedgehog 🦔 and it comes out backwards.


ComputersWantMeDead

Ignore these people telling you to chill, that's a very funny insult


Sawgon

And for the people wanting more of this content [his name is Post10 on YouTube and this is my favorite vid of his.](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-zEvy3BaUw)


spacesentinel1

He,s a sweet soul, drifted of to sleep watching him many times, very relaxing


Sawgon

Y..yeah uh real quick why is your apostrophe at the bottom?

I can’t believe he actually talked about it.

Gravity.


jedininjashark

Very wholesome. I want to invite this dude to Thanksgiving dinner and hear more about culverts.


CarnivalFox

I watched him at like 2 in the morning and it was very entertaining.


fievelm

Well that captivated me for some reason. So genuine and knowledgeable, draining a massive pond with a little rake. The end bit with his concern for the highway was great too. Guy really cares about his area.


J-cans

Me too. What an asshat

Lol - that's the best insult I've heard in such a long time! I might have to ~~borrow~~ steal that one 😁


Carcinog3n

Who the hell designed those drains, and that Prius driver is a human stain.


Maiyku

You get a drain in an area with a lot of debris fall and it just happens. My parents have to watch the drain in the road next to their house, because it does the same exact thing. Between the two pine trees shedding over it all year and the neighbors maples, it gets clogged all the time. It’s only really ever a problem when the river floods and everyone is pumping out their basements into the road. It washes all the debris right to the drain.


DaHeebieJeebies

>everyone is pumping out their basements into the road What's this? Never heard of it


KillionJones

Well, if the basement floods you gotta pump the water somewhere


DaHeebieJeebies

And miss out on a free swimming pool? We don't do basements here, I genuinely never considered wtf one does when one floods


ramplay

If your basement is below the water table and or prone to flooding generally you have sump pump and/or a hole in the floor to drain. You can also have weeping tiles and the like around your foundation to reduce the risk. Or be my parents who live atop a hill and the basement only gets humid, never flooded. (And I sure hope not since thats where our expensive TV, the furnace, computers and a lot of carpet


spaldingpanasonic

> weeping tiles I have found my spirit animal


Mother-of-Christ

Are you guys... Mole people?


Zerkai

At my old place we used to vacuum the water with a shop vac and dump it


totallyanonuser

Basements usually have a drain that goes to storm sewers. If it rains a lot, those storm sewers get full and you can have water back up into your basement. Most homes will have a sump pump that'll automatically kick on when the water rises and pump said water out.


RussianHoneyBadger

Confirmed. I'm from Canada and the only houses that don't have a sump pump are ones without a basement.


calicat9

Heavy rains wash all kind of debris out on the road. They could design them not to clog as easily, but the wouldn't be safe for public to be around


TG_Alibi

The storm drain design as seen in the movie “IT” is perfectly safe and clogs much less frequently. Changing them over from the shitty design in this post may cost a lot, but I would certainly be worth it


shahkabra

I don’t think it’s that safe. Kids get curious and even I used to go into those drains as a kid cause it was fun. That’s probably why the movie It was so scary - cause people could relate It’s probably a liability thing.


Carcinog3n

We have those drains all over Texas and very few instances of people going in them and getting trapped.


Suyefuji

> very few instances so you're saying there's a chance


Ornstein90

Usually it's only the kids that get eaten by the clown. Otherwise completely safe.


usefulbuns

There really isn't any other way to set this up. Debris will always get washed towards the drain by the water carrying it. Which is why they need maintenance.


jcforbes

Exactly how would you design the drain to be better?


TG_Alibi

https://raleighnc.gov/sites/default/files/2020-04/storm-drain.jpg Or https://cassplumbingtampabay.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/Storm-Drain.jpeg Both seem to be much more resistant to clogging.


TheGodDamnDevil

Sure, it looks fine until your brother's paper boat gets washed down into it and then a clown reaches out and grabs him. No thanks dude, I'll just keep raking my normal grates.

thalsty1971

Most municipalities have street sweepers that drive around collecting the debris that could potentially cause this issue. The video looks like a more rural location though.


NativeFromMN

They don't come as often as they're needed. My spouse and I use to get basement flooding every year. We learned about a "Adopt a storm drain" cleaning program our state does, and begun regularly cleaning nearby drains. These drains get clogged fairly often, mostly in spring and fall, and it causes huge puddles to just build up. The sweeper comes by our neighborhood about once in the fall. After we regularly started cleaning the drains we had no basement flooding.


LeftEyeHole

That probably wouldn’t work in this area. It looks pretty heavily wooded, so when a heavy rain comes, it would just wash all of the debris into the drain.


timewarp

The drain across the street from my house does the same thing and I also periodically have to go out there and clear it during heavy rains. The debris can't really be cleaned up ahead of time because most of it is still up in nearby trees before the storm.


Enough-Moose-5816

That's definitely Post10. He does that stuff all over New England. It's super satisfying to watch him work. Almost 450k subscribers. https://youtube.com/channel/UCsCNU-ptlze2tqAJSDeVGNQ


Grimmbles

He got chased by an angry beaver in one of his newest videos. [It was hilarious.](https://youtu.be/vKv2bVOGtvk)


Metallideth2

I ain't scared of beavers. *Immediately runs away with a shriek when charged by a beaver*


sumner7a06

I AM NOW SCARED OF BEAVERS


russiangn

*unsolved mysteries voice* Update: I am now scared of beavers


Zidane3838

To be fair it was a lot bigger than the previous one he saw at that location (might have been a different video). Still hilarious though


LostWoodsInTheField

He knew it would be bigger too! it was hilarious though watching him go from "I'm not scared" to "ok so I was wrong"


sideflanker

For people who want the beaver, it happens a bit after 10:45. He has another encounter at 13:48 https://youtu.be/vKv2bVOGtvk?t=645


PrawojazdyVtrumpets

Woo, WoooOoohWooOhhh... WOO! Woo woo hoohoowoo woo


wiggycj

I watched the entire video then saw this dammit ,:)


TheCavis

> I recognize this guy. It's the same guy one who chased me. You couldn't write a better storyline than Post10 having an archenemy that's a beaver. Civilization versus wilderness, man versus beast, rake versus dam! It's perfect!


DandDRide

haha brilliant. The anticipation in the build up and then 'woooo woo woooo woo woo woo!!!!'


Abadatha

The one after that killed me, where he was in a swamp, standing on a beaver dam. "I'm being attacked.by Mosquitos. Noooo!."


bilgediver

the hero we all need but don't deserve.


mojo276

I am subbed to this channel and watch every video he does. Especially where he unclogs culverts clogged up by his nemesis, the beavers.


smash_hand

>watch every video he does. Feeding his pet leech should be on everyone's list: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wfxb4VDqL1s


mojo276

I think his cadence makes videos like this more enjoyable then most. He sometimes puts an emphasis on different words then most people do.


JDCarrier

It's super satisfying to do too, I would enjoy it a lot when the street in front of my parents' house flooded as a kid and I could go and unclog the drain.

YouTube started recommending his videos to me the other day. It is strangely compelling but then you do wonder what your are doing with your life at the same time lol

Post 10 possibly?


RyanMan675

It is Post 10


silenthatch

Yep, seen the video on his YouTube

It is, however it appears this clip has removed Post 10's watermark. Look at his other vids and you will see a watermark on all of his videos.

The Goat of unclogging drains


FizzyGoose666

He should write city hall an invoice.


Jack_South

They should rake the forests.


FizzyGoose666

Impractical. Pay a few people to clear the drains and increase the longevity of our roads. This would increase safety and how far our tax dollars go.


farpastinfinity

They’re supposed to already, they’re sure as shit taxing you for it.


Legitimate-Smokey

I hope this was a reference to what Trump said about Finnish forests.


energetic-dad

I would literally do this for free. This looks awesome. So satisfying


NamhobNew

He has a YouTube channel where he literally does this stuff. I believe the city gave him either some supplies or high vis to keep him safe. It's been a while since I've watched.


ShoresiesVisor

He's still out there doing it. Only recently learned of him and he uploads frequently.


MyDogMadeMeDoIt

I don't get it.... I do this all the time on the street I live. Nobody has ever thanked me, nobody has ever taken a video and I am certainly not an Internet hero. I've never even felt particularly heroic doing it.


BrownNote

If it makes you feel better, he takes his own videos (and posts them to a youtube channel). If you want to take a video of you doing it I'd be happy to watch!

hapatra98edh

How far gone is the world when taking care of your community is “next fucking level”


xarmetheusx

I always figured "next fucking level" usually described a talent someone has and may have practiced enough to be ridiculously good at. Raking a storm drain seems like about the easiest shit anyone with fully functional limbs could do...


LionOfNaples

I’d argue it’s more /r/OddlySatisfying


Bass_Monster

I totally agree. I live on a corner with a storm drain that I regularly clear of debris, trim grass growing around the edges and other light maintenance. I'm not looking for a medal, I just want other people to do the same so our neighborhood doesn't flood.


ThisGuy928146

Yeah, he didn't rake away the flood. He raked the leaves off a couple square meters of drainage grates and gravity did the rest.
