word is, if you drop a GummyBear off the top and it hits someone, it will go straight through them.

A gummy bear? Yeah... I don't think objects continue accelerating until they hit something...

But that is a crazy tall building.

I remember arguments at the fraternity dinner table with ENG's telling the Business majors that at some point, adding more sugar to their ice tea, that it wouldnt dissolve...

Dubai is trying to become a tourism center for when the oil dries up, that's what they're using the oil money for, to build other economic sectors.

I would never go up in that. I have a customer on the 48th floor of the BofA building. I hated being up there.

English? Was English 202 the study of fluid dynamics?

Here's a lab experiment for you:

Terminal velocity averages out to be somewhere around 120mph for a skydiver. Find someone with a fast car, flat road, and a bag of gummi bears. Throw one out the window at 120mph and let us know what kind of carnage ensues.









btw---I'm just busting your balls. :D

I get chills when he points the camera over the side and it shakes in his hand. I could never ever do that. I'd be paralysed with fear.

I wonder what the terminal velocity of a gummy bear is and just how much damage getting hit by one at that speed would do. Someone ring Mythbusters and get me Kari's number.....but also to y'know get them on the case.The main thing is to get me Kari's number though, just so we're clear.
