Could jumping off an object at the last second save your life?
Posted 3/30/09
I herd about this somewhere before, and I thought it was interesting.

Say you're standing on a platform above ground, maybe at least 30 feet or higher (don't ask why you're up there, just answer it). All of a sudden that platform falls. Could jumping off it seconds before it hits the ground save you?

Of course if you jump or fall off something that's high you might break a couple of bones or die.
But if you jump off something shorter the landing won't be as bad.

Dose anyone get what I'm saying?

The relativity law thingy.
If the platform falls, you will be falling at the same speed.
So if you jump, it might take off a few km/h when you hit the floor.
But your legs will still be shattered.
DO IT FAGGOT.

Probably. I also saw on the Discovery Channel a long time ago.

Cheap shot, and it's still a valid question, you know.

I don't know, maybe -- I wouldn't exactly try it though lol.

No, you'll die either way, it is virtally impossible to jump at the last second, since you'll be screaming the hell out of your life anyway, secondly your legs don't have enough strength to push yourself up, even if you do, you'll shatter you bones in the process.

Mmm! Had this thought often, and I'm quite sure the name is no! Sorry ^_^ Cause! even though junp, you'll still be moving down with so high speed you'll hit hard, mmm! though, maybe if the drop aint more than 30 feet you'll do better jumping...
