This is really cool:

http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2011/06/110613-space-science-star-water-bullets-kristensen/

A protostar was discovered that shoots jets of water from its poles. It shoots a hundred millions times the volume of water per second that the Amazon River does, and at a velocity 80 times faster than a bullet.

I'm glad I don't have to wade in that flow!

That would take an extra-long rod and a few billion miles of backing, and a drag with a radius the diameter of Jupiter!

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...
