This Looks Riskier Than It Is

Norwegian physicist Andreas Wahl goes way out of his way to demonstrate how physics work. Here he is, experimenting on himself for the TV program Life on the Line. I didn’t quite understand what he was doing when I first watched, and I must admit, it made my stomach drop a little when the stunt became clear. It didn't drop 14 meters, though, like he did! The point of his stunt is that “things rotate faster when they approach a central point.” It’s explained a little more in this article. (via Viral Viral Videos)
