Wow! [A person flies down from the sky!] Hi, Sushi Ramen “Riku” here. Wow! Hi, Sushi Ramen Riku here. Well, now. Today, I’m going to … [Yeah!] Turn the switch on! [A volleyball pitching machine] This is a machine that pitches volleyballs at high speed. If you put a ball here … Come on! Eee! Aiiii! Aieee! Ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha ha! Ow, that hurts! [Super Play] [He is injured] Aaah! Wait, wait, wait!!! [Today’s experiment] OK, I had this idea … If a lot of volleyballs are shot from a number of volleyball pitching machines at the same time, And I’m standing in the middle, I’ll be hit by a bunch of volleyballs that fly in from all directions. My body will be compressed from all directions at once. What do you think the direction of all that force will be? It must be directed upward. I think that the accumulation of upward force will make me become slightly taller. Therefore, I’ve prepared a measuring device that can determine the height of tall people like me. Now, I will try to determine how much my height can be extended. No, forget it! There isn’t any guy who is 3 meters tall! If I were 3 meters tall, I’d want to shrink, not get taller. [He is so annoying.] On the contrary, I’d want to shrink … Well, then. Before making myself taller, I’m going to measure my current height. Please, go ahead. [The Afro-haired Assistant] That hurts! [You hit me on the head and made a sound like a see-saw!] I didn’t say you could do that.] 160 centimeters … [I’m going to make it!!] In! [Excuse me for sticking this in!] [There’s a man who is unfailingly courteous!] In! Turn the switch on! [Groing!] (sound of the volleyball pitching machine) Well, that will be me in five minutes. Ok, so when it’s like this, pull this pin out … Whoooo! Aaaaiii! That looks very painful. [He is saying that like it’s some other person’s problem.] [Now, I’m done!] I’m scared!
It’s too scary! [Worse than I expected!] ① I ’m really scared!
Wait a second … Arrrgh!
Too bad! Who is the guy who thought up this stupid project? Compression … … so now am I a little taller? ② It’s me. It’s my fate to be the victim of volleyball shots. ③ Being in the middle, here, is impossible. [I hate myself – the guy that made this plan!] [④ Even in the middle of this dilemma, he doesn’t forget to give instructions to the cameraman.] Stand by me … Stand by me … Oh! Darling, Darling! … Stand by me — Oh, No, No, No. No, No, No. Stand by me! I’ll do it. I’ll do it. Please kick me (lightly) (just once) in the ass. ⑤ I said: Kick me lightly! [Let’s make me taller] I’m asking you to kindly cooperate with me on this experiment. Now I will step up to the height meter carefully and then measure carefully… [① The preliminary check before attempting to extend my height] Yes, today I am tall. I realized after creating this system, That I do not want to do it one bit. The speed of the machines that shoot the balls is set to maximum. It looks like they are going to hurt me a lot! Being hit by a volleyball hurts more than you would expect. This device has a lot of disadvantages. In theory, I will be made taller. That’s why Riku doesn’t stop getting taller. In order to get taller … Turn this switch on! [Max Power] He’s moving weirdly. It hurts a whole heck of a lot. A concentrated attack. There is no escape. There is no escape from this force. The force that is building must surely be directed upward. Has he gotten any taller? [It looks like the truth is, “Far from it!”] Hey, Riku! Hey, Riku, please go and measure your height as soon as possible. Or, you will shrink again. Hey, Riku, please go and measure your height as soon as possible. Hey, Riku Hey, Riku, go within 1 second … It seemed like it was going to be a bit rough. How many centimeters taller has he gotten? That hurts! [I hate height measurement!] I’m hurting worse than ever. I’m hurting worse than ever. Are you serious? The result is a loss of 2 millimeters. Hey! Hey! [The result of this experiment was the opposite of the one predicted by the hypothesis.] OK, I want you to stop asking me to do everything without any warning whatsoever! It might make you taller. It’s scary …! Is this position okay? I’m too close to you, right? I’m too close to you. … because I’m really scared. No, I don’t want to. I’ll take some shots. Wow, wait, no, no, no, no! No, I don’t want to be hit. I’ll take some shots. Not all at the same time; Some shots were made at somewhat different times. Your staggered forward, so you got shot again. Wow! Ta Dah!
