Why would he know what concrete feels like?
Whole different entry for the passing out and slowly sinking into oblivion. Or the predators lurking around for the delivered snack.
Next time skip it.
I don’t know what you’re belly-aching about.
YOUR “flight” went better that Icarus’ Did.
Well, he could have landed on the rocks.
Was this the design that was being sketched in yesterday’s BC?
I never knew book, pen, and concrete was invented in B.C.
WHAT are you doing in water? Water is for drinking, for showering, and MAYBE for sticking your toe in, if you’re so foolish as to go to a BEACH . . where there’s SAND. . . can you tell I’m a hammock person???
I read about a study once, where they dropped eggs on grass, concrete, and water, and compared how many broke and how many remained whole in each case (college students do lot’s of weird things). Their conclusion was that water is harder than grass, but not as hard as concrete.
Oh… btw… I read this in a peer-reviewed journal.
Mythbusters pretty well worked out that 2nd one — it was awesome!
If you fell into Kill Van Kull (between Staten Island and New Jersey) you’d dissolve!
“High up enough”? Someone needs to work on their grammar.
Both he and the water are very dense.
This is what it would look like if Wile E Coyote had a minion. He still wouldn’t get the Road Runner though.
Hydroplane racers will tell you after they crash at well over 100 mph that water feels exactly like concrete! :o0
Sort of reminds me of a reply on the old Hollywood Squares show. They asked Cliff Arquette (aka Charley Weaver), “How high should you be before jumping out of an airplane?” Charley’s reply was “I reckon three days of steady drinking should do it.”
Ah – the dreaded “belly flop!”
But you achieved new heights.
You really don’t have to be that high. Water is incompressible, so if you hit it flat it is very much like hitting a solid wall… or worse.
Water is indeed essentially uncompressible.
Been there, done that – I was 14 when I lost it off a 5-metre board and hit the water flat!
