InstaSound : I guess I'm interested in coastal defence now

StansStuff : Is this some sort of brainwashing scheme? No-one watching this video knows how they got here or had any previous interest in flood defense..

Rano : Soooo.... This was in your recommendations too?

Rilloff : Actually its a good guide to make a tsunami defence in Cities Skylines

_ _ : #TeamRecurveWall

Flow Graphics : I don't know how I got here but I don't want to leave

URGENT FURY : I'm still shook from that recurved wall tho

G. H : Okay....how did i get here....why is this recommended...to me........why is this so interesting to me.....why am i staying here......? (Edit: lmao i’m so confused that my grammar is wrong)


Markuss Tols : I dunno why but his voice is so calming

Jack is not in the box : WATER IS NOT BLUE! FAKE

Darrian Weathington : So rock armor with a slightly larger recurve wall and a submerged breakwater means mother nature loses the fight... or if the breakwater is to expensive make a makeshift one from rocks, rock breakers

ICE_BEAR25 GAMING : Plot twist *Extremely high tide*

Jason Arruda : I love how this just showed up on my recommended without me watching anything about coastal defense, but I’m high key interested

Captain Qwaz Caz : just build a bigger wall

GUTZ : Watched this 3 times now.. don't know why but I'm really enjoying this..

Pedersen : Screw KSI vs Logan Paul. This is actually fun and interesting to watch (not saying KSI vs Logan Paul is uninteresting tho)

Anybody Noname : Don't really know why this recommended but what about a zig zag wall? Seems way cheaper...

James W : Not click bait, and straight to the point, and I learned something throughout the whole video without having to wait for the very end. The rest of YT could learn a thing or two instead of wasting people's time. ;)

TumbleWeed : Where do you buy this

Hyun Choi : this experiment is flawed because the height/depth of the water consistently changes by adding props inside the water. notice how the water rises once he places the steps inside the water (mass being added onto the volume of water) but having the same verticle barrier. 8:11 this obviously will result in the water overflowing over the barrier regardless of the staircase’s effectiveness.


bullmilk : The recurve option reminds me of a muzzle break for a rifle.

I am Good : i want that thing as a toy!!!!!!!!!!

OCSol : I'm a music producer.

Amina : Am I the only one who is seeing that the beaker has a different volume once he picks it up?

The Missing c h r o m o s o m e : I know how I got here....I had just followed my recommendations, not sure why I stayed though.......

Alex Ace : Slowly drifting. Drifting away. *Wave after wave* *Wave after wave*

Parallax : I don't even know why this was a suggested video for me, I saw how long it was, and thought 'Nah I'll probably close it after 30 secs' - Here I am at the end of the 12:22 wanting more experiments. Really good video and interesting for someone who had no prior interest in this.

Lucas P R S : Youtube recommended this to me

Mirage Uchiha : Dunno how/why this is in my suggested vids, but I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one who was interested after watching. Lol #ProtectOurCoasts

Lazer Sloth : I have no idea how I ended up watching this but it's weirdly satisfying

Derpo McRandom : Why doesn’t this channel have more subscribers? They could be our saviors!

Boxhawk : Should have put tiny figures on the wall getting swept away to represent idiots watching waves during storms.

DynestiGTI : The only problem with a recurved wall is that when the curve erodes it will just return to being a vertical wall. Not very good in the long term, especially with high costs for repair. Edit: At 11:18 I can only imagine how dangerous that could be to fishing boats.

ICE_BEAR25 GAMING : Why is oyster bad?

johnny llooddte : why not recurved steps and recurved wall

Zoie3x8 : so, the best coastal defense method is 1 stepped revetments along with recurve walls, along with 2 rock armor where oystering is desired, and 3 submerged nearshore breakwater structures, where beach preservation is desired.

Dantes SecondEmail : I think he meant to say “it’s not always the best option”, but instead he said “it’s always not the best option”.

Matt Vliet : You need a longer tank to fully sell me on the break water.

Derpo McRandom : Am I the only one who came here because I actually wanted to learn about this?

CtsLife : Man, I didn't know that slope salesmen exist...

Macr Jacr : Just remove the water

Alexander Bradley : How did I get here and why am I staying

Danny Schatz : Or go to Canada, ya heat lovers!

Андрей Андреев : че он пиздит?

Seecooty : where can I buy the wave simulator and the wave defenses I want them

Jami Ontor Sheikh : I didnt get it

Lennius Gato : 5:35 they all had one job and they failed Because this way to try to stop the waves is terrible

Nordelsoup : Jeez. Doesn't exactly take a genius to figure this b.s out. Who even thought of the vertical wall?? The instant solution I thought of was the recurve
