Can you hake a whole where we will have to empty the box from? Can we edit inside the box to force things up?

this contest needs revision (make some actual rules dude)
such as

-you may not edit the scene in any way other than making a hole in the tank for your pump

-the hole may not be any larger than X (however big you would want it)

-you may not use overly simple or cheap ways of making a pump (somewhat meshed gears)

and some others that i cant think of at the moment

Okay. Place a box inside your water box. Roughly the same size as your water box. Press play, instantaneous water expulsion. Infinite score.
I win.

The actual pump fits within a meter square, but there are some reinforcements that help prevent leakage that do not fit.
Matthias Wandel is epic, in my humble opinion.

Umm, no, it wouldn't fit inside the 1m2 allowed size, so you lose, good day sir!

Edit: @Someone Else your pump does bend the rules a little, but I will allow it as the pump does fit, the rest is just to direct the water somewhere and not part of the actual pump. :)

[scene]50558[/scene]

Best water *pump* ever.
Still totally legal; you never defined 'pump' or the size of the hole in the water container. You also never said that the 'pump' must extract the water in a useable way/form :)

I win until you change the rules.

Since there was only a single entry, may I post an entry? ( despite being passed the deadline )
I didn't find this until today.

I have no problem with that.
Dunno about Pyromaniac, but I say go right ahead.

Just make sure it is actually a pump that moves the water from the box to some higher location in a useful way.
Unlike TC42's entry.
