Post Water rocket reaches 810'
Ever seen a clustered, staged water rocket? Not exactly a Heinlein torch ship using water as reaction mass, but still kinda cool.

The slo mo really sells it. Next up must be an intercontinental ballistic water balloon delivery system to soak the Russkies.

Nah, the Russkies don't have enough money. I'd rather soak the Chinese. ;)
