I don't want to be cruel here, but I'm just trying to picture the physics behind this news story:
I've flown in my fair share of airplanes, and been in my fair share of lavatories. First of all, I can't say as I can recall ever looking up at the ceiling of one, but I also can't picture where you'd attach a rope. Usually there's a lot of smooth plastic all around, and not much else. Secondly, I know that I usually have to crouch in a lot of parts of an airplane, and that hanging requires a high enough ceiling to... well... hang. So did he bend his knees or something?
This sort of reminds me of one of those brain teasers I remember from childhood:
And yes, I remember that from childhood. My sister Sarah had some rather morbid brain teasers. Let's just say I had an interesting childhood.
Forgive my morbid imagination, but I'm picturing him flushing the other end of the rope down that scary-suctioning airplane toilet.Post a Comment
