Mr. OD-1 watched as Duffus got ready to launch his boat into the water. "It's gonna leak, Duffus" remarked OD-1.
"No, it shouldn't leak. I got in the boat, carefully patched all the holes with the patch kit recommended by the marina and then filled the boat with water to see if it would leak - and no leaks," replied Duffus.
"OK then, but you're gonna get wet," yelled Mr. Od-1 as Duffus launched the boat out into the lake, ignoring him. Moments later Duffus frantically rowed back to shore as the boat began to fill with water.
Why did Mr. Od-1 think that Duffus's repair would fail even though he used the proper repair materials?


Think water pressure.
