Water parks can be traumatic places. Not only do they provide up close and personal evidence of America's obesity crisis, but there is always a question of where these masses of humanity are actually going to the bathroom.

To combat these concerns, a bunch of friends in Salt Lake City have figured out a way to beat the water park blues. They found themselves a large drainage pipe and water slide-d to their hearts' content.

Don't worry, they're not playing in a sewer, but rather a culvert, a pipe which allows a river to pass under a road. (And even if it was a sewer, we're not sure it would be that much less sanitary than a water park.)

As you can see, a good time was had by all. Sadly it also serves as a reminder that summer is coming to an end and you probably never had as much fun as the folks in this video.
