• 3-30-2017 At one time I was told that iron smelters spray water on molten iron to blast away the scale as fast as it forms. The water has enough force to cut through a board.

      Right - under pressure water is very powerful.
  • Water can cut through anything. Never subject your finger (skin) to a high pressure spray, not even the wands at your local car wash because you will get cut. Check out this video of water cutting through 100 mm. bullet proof glass. -

      When I was about 11 years old there was a brush fire in the small community I lived in. At one point I was allowed to hold a high pressure hose with a small orifice. Curiosity of course got me so I carefully touched the stream of water coming out of the nozzle. I received an instant blister when water was forced through my skin. I am sure if I had passed my finger through the stream it would have severely cut me if it didn't cut my finger off. That was way back in 1949, and I remember it well today. The fire was put out successfully. If it had progressed it could have turned into a major mountain forest fire.

      Thank you....
  • Oh sure. A narrow jet of water, under pressure, could make a hole right through a brick wall, in fact. Oops, this was already pointed out. Hmm...cant delete it! Oh well, so as not to waste your time, I will tell you an amusing joke. Wait, maybe I won't. *wanders off* .................Kidding, here: A moose walks into a bar. Bartender says "Why the long face, chum?" Ba dump bump. (No? hmm.. ok...Guy walks into a bar. Ouch!) (Still nothing ? hmm...

  • Ask the rock that sits in the river. Eventually, it'll be gone.
  • Yes, with enough force or time.
