    Here is a fun effect. I wonder if it has been described previously, given how simple it is to reproduce. I remember seeing similar effects with an empty plastic bag, spinning midair on the side of an air updraft.

    Cool but their water jet was mostly vertical. I've seen it done with an air jet leaning at a considerable angle and it still works.
