Looks like a nifty fleet engagement. Though they seem very nimble. Very early age of steam style action going on. At least they were not trying to ram.

I would love to be participating in a water fight like that. This is excellent game show material.

Anyways, will someone enlighten me on why they are spraying water? If it harms the boats/crews being sprayed on, its an awfully aggressive thing to do, if it doesn't, then what is the point?

Utter displeasure from the water pressure.

I had the misfortune of being hit by one during training, and it hurts despite me being in full riot gear. It is not funny to mess with it anywhere within 25m.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Can't they just avoid the water by going inside their boat?

Scary thought :- Either sides can increase the water pressure if they wanted.....
With such a large jet of water, a more intricate looped pump system would be required to cycle the water at a high pressure and velocity to achieve the cutting effect. But Bernoulli's principle states that the two variables are inversely proportionate to each other, and at such long distances, the pressure is decreased.

We need either a better hose design, or replace the fluid with blood; the sharks in the water will take care of the rest.

While not feasible as an anti-armour weapon, the technology is there for use as a short range anti-personal weapon. It might not kill you, but it will draw a lot of blood.

Only if the ships were made of meat

So, I'm not actively participating in this discussion, but here's some more material to discuss:

China tells Japan disputed islands "sacred Chinese territory"

(Reuters) - Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi stressed his country's claim to disputed islands with his Japanese counterpart, Koichiro Gemba, in New York on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly, Xinhua news agency reported on Wednesday.

Xinhua's brief report said Yang reiterated China's "solemn position on the issue of Diaoyu Islands, which have been China's sacred territory since ancient times". (Reporting by Chris Buckley; Editing by Nick Macfie)

Sacred for what reason? Sacred ground has religious segnificance, or a place where one buries their ancestors.

Now it just looks like they're grasping at straws.

Looks like it for me too. I guess someone's running short on ideas to bring in public.

Well, their claims were shaky at best. So, time to use the "our sacred ground/ancestral land since ancient times" card.

..I would suppose that relying on the Meiji Era information would be any better on the Japanese side then

I do think the statement is pretty bad. At the same time, I don't think Japan has a better claim, if it hasn't really been able to argue it when it is so reliant on treaties with the United States as the basis.
