Mexican Splash Wave

crowd vortex

Mexican Waves usually orbit the crowd at a stadium, but Mexican Splash Wave displays a different effect. It's as if a large stone had been thrown into the middle of the playing area, and the crowd act in the manner of the expanding circular ripples of water, radiating out from the centre of the stadium.

       For reasons which I've never entirely understood, most stadia seem to have a huge central area which is kept as a lawn and is free of seats. Sometimes, a few people will run about in this central lawn throwing or hitting balls.   

       As a result, a ripple that started in the centre of the stadium would only be visible for the last moments of its radial spread. I think the visual effect would be rather similar to toppling a single domino.

       If a suitably sized explosive charge were to be detonated in the centre of a stadium, the audience would fall outwards radiating on lines converging on the hypocentre.

       There is no such thing as a "suitably sized explosive charge". They are all too small.

       If you're concerned as to the bulkiness to device, simply compress the plutonium in your own home, and then transport it to the target.

       NB Mexican gravity wave. Linky etc

       Yes, it's sometimes nice to keep traditions alive.
