    Jason goes Inception on that plunge!

    Yeah, Tower, whenever I want scientific accuracy instead of humor, I always go to the Foxtrot strip.

    Sigh.

    Odd isn’t it? Some folk mistake a “comic” strip for a “reality” strip.

    This should be an Olympic event — think how many twists and spins and twirls and tricks they could do on the way down!

    The description on the very page I read the comic says: “FoxTrot is a comic strip with attitude, wit and a big dose of reality.” So, just a big dose, not a literal adherence to reality.
    Flame on!

    Actually, Bill Amend has a bachelor’s degree in physics. This shows in some of his strips where, for instance, Jason calculates the trajectory of a rock thrown by a catapult — Amend uses the REAL equations that solve the problem, unlike most cartoonists. But he IS a cartoonist, so the humor is what is most important.

    I’m pretty sure “Mythbusters” did a show testing just how many ordinary helium balloons it took to lift a child off the ground. They ended up using several hundred. They also did a test to find out if a football filled with helium travels better than one filled with air. No difference.

    Ditto, thanks to Mythbusters.

    I would recommend against MSNBC, or CNN or any broadcast network as well.

    If Jason is suspended there, all it takes is a breeze and he’ll drift away – into the path of a truck or bus.
