No matter how long the slinky is, the bottom of the slinky will stay still (hover) until the top reaches it. Even if the slinky is over 1000 feet long.
OMFG NEW EXPERIMENTS
HOW IS GRAVITY EVEN REAL
OKAY LET ME EXPLAIN YOU A THING
Gravity acts on every part of an object, that much is true. However, what’s going on here is so much more complicated than gravity. The spring compresses because its shape means the rings want to be together. I’m sure we all know Newton’s Third Law: for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction - that is to say, for every bit of gravitational force bringing the top of the Slinky down, there is an equal amount of tension force bringing the bottom of the Slinky up. The bottom of the Slinky doesn’t move because the force of the rings bringing themselves up to meet the ring above them pulls it up at a rate equal to that of gravity.
TLDR: the Slinky is just that cool.
just had a realization that someday there are going to be gifsets of Sam and Dean’s first and last words on Supernatural
and I started crying
#what if they were the same #woah easy tiger #dean says as he trys to keep sam from freaking out #blood pouring #unstoppable from his stomach#hahahahahahah
wasn’t Dean’s first line “goodnight Sammy”.
IS THAT SUPPOSED TO MAKE ME FEEL BETTER
I googled world funniest joke and this was it
Of course the Sherlock fandom is the only fandom with its shit together enough to have a joke
this joke existed before BBC sherlock you fucks
Yes, and the Sherlock fandom would include any and all renditions of Sherlock Holmes which has existed since 1887. So the Sherlock fandom, which has existed since the 1800s includes people who haven’t even watched the show, or don’t even like the show, you rude piece of spoilt lettuce.
