Walking on Water Jesus

wind up Jesus and place on water

Walking on Water Jesus is a small novelty figure that you wind up and place carefully on the surface of its accompanying metal tray of shallow water, where upon it raises its arms and walks steadily across to the other side.

The figure itself is simple, but has magnetised sandals. The tray has a painted scene that replicates the bottom of a lake.

       would be a miracle if it worked.

       you're proposing an illusion of floating? A more impressive take would be to use a magnetic figure that genuinely floats on the magnetic field.

       A way to achieve this is to have a deep bowl, with a very thin sheet of acrylic near the top. The portion under the sheet is filled with water; a little water, containing a tiny amount of surfactant, is poured on the top (the sheet does need to be perfectly level).   

       Any object placed "in" the water will appear to float, but is in fact resting on the submerged acrylic sheet.

       Easier to implement than Parting the Water Moses. [+]

       For max profit make sure you appeal to the midwest by making him look like he came from England, not like someone from Israel.

       I think there should be a miracle demonstration kit; add enough salt to increase buoyancy, thereby demonstrating the power of the "salt of the earth." With some oversized sandals for balance and a very lightweight model, perhaps...

       I'm probably not the first to wonder this, but if J was walking on the water why did he get in the boat? Lazy? Wanted to get off his sinking raft?

       I think it would be much more fun to have those small individual Gouda's (like Baby Bel) doing this.

       Come to think of it, it would have been a more impressive trick if he'd walked on the bottom of the lake.

       [MB]//those small individual Gouda's// Halfbakery technology will, one day, be advanced enough to compute, for each halfbaker, the percentage of cheese-related ideas & annos. On that far-off day, when cheese-index rankings are announced, mark my words, your name will lead all the rest (well, #2, after Abou Ben Adhem's, obviously).

       It was, in fact, an intrinsically cheese-related comment. Baby cheeses walking on water!
MaxwellBuchanan, Mar 20 2010

       Cheezus Christ ?
8th of 7, Mar 20 2010

       Yeah, wine and crackers -- something missing. Communion should clearly include cheese.

       Go for it, [mp], you got a live one there.

       Ah yes, the Jeez-it. Memories.

       // would that be literally interpreted //   

       Ah, that old chestnut, Transubstantiation.   

8th of 7, Mar 22 2010

       Two, four, six, eight
Time to transubstantiate.

       (Tom Lehrer, Vatican Rag)
MaxwellBuchanan, Mar 22 2010

       The question is, transubstantiated into what? Blood and flesh are already spoken for.
mouseposture, Mar 22 2010

       into cheese, obviously.
pocmloc, Mar 22 2010

       I mentioned transubstantiation, earlier today, to someone who was had a Catholic education and is now a Sunday school teacher. Turns out, she didn't know the word. I thought of saying "People slaughtered each other over this in the 17th century, and now you don't even teach it to your children!" but then realized: that's a *good* thing.
