LEGAL ISSUE OF THE DAY SO FAR

Could a bong dropped from that height kill a pedestrian?

Oh, she's a Hollywood-type acting person ... must've been a bong fer medicinal use only, eh?

Doesn't anybody at DARPA care about security anymore? We were just about to do our CDR on the Drone-Bong program, and some halfwit leaks it!

dunno, but hopefully it spares us the misery of kills her 'career'

She did a bad, bad thing.

"(It takes a bong more than 350 feet to reach terminal velocity. Air drag would have minimal effect on the speed of the falling bong.) A typical glass bong weighs between 2 and 3 pounds..."

The Bong Research Department of Nogales University rejects these data. A typical glass bong weighs between 1.1 and 1.4 kilograms, and reaches terminal velocity at approximately 341 feet. Air drag obviously has a major effect, as otherwise terminal velocity would never be reached.

I'm seeing a credit course here.

Does a "high quality bong" get the Good Housekeeping seal?
Has Consumers Reports covered the ratings?
Yet, I mean?

JSG - "The Bong Research Department of Nogales University rejects these data. A typical glass bong weighs between 1.1 and 1.4 kilograms, and reaches terminal velocity at approximately 341 feet."

Yes, but it feels like 927 feet.

Getting bonked on the head by a bong at terminal velocity would really harsh your mellow.

The question is, if Amanda Bynes dropped from the 36th floor and landed on a pedestrian, would it kill him, assuming he was carrying a 32 ounce sugary drink.

9, you are correct, of course. Thank you for refining the BRD of NU's simple objective observations with an appropriate and necessary psychological point.

I'm not sure it would kill you but it would put a heck of a pump-knot on your noggin.

Well, I live in an apartment on the 99th floor of my block . . .

They're not including the frictional coefficient of the crud in NYC air in the calculations. And whether it was a bong or a vase from a window, one good urn deserves an officer.

Just watch out for guys dressed up like a Union Jack, Bob.

I just got an idea for an episode of Mythbusters.
