Today's lesson relates to Newtonian physics. The experiment serves to validate accepted theories and beliefs regarding gravity. Materials needed for our tests included a threadbare, three legged couch, a dictionary and a thesaurus. The books had been used as the sofa's fourth leg and for occasional reference.
To collect the required data the test furniture and the dictionary (taped shut) were tossed from the third floor of a six-flat apartment building.
Ladies and gentlemen behold ...
Note the dust ruffle in the above photograph. We did not take into account frictional losses resulting from the rapid flapping which may have affected the outcome to a small degree.
Success! Both test subjects took exactly the same amount of time to fall an equal distance. The book landed just out of the field of view at the precise moment as the dropped davenport. Upon landing the physical properties of the quarter-ton couch seemed to change to those of a liquid, perhaps due to the sudden deceleration.
NOTE: No reference books were harmed during this experiment.
