One of those questions you got in physics lessons at school
Friday, July 13, 2012
A cat weighing 12 pounds leaps from a chair 2.6 ft from the ground at twice the speed of gravity in the attempt to get into the kitchen first.
Q. What will the pound per square inch impact of this furry feline missile be on the shins of his human slave, a middle aged morbidly obese female?
Q. What is the likelihood of the cat sustaining damage himself?
Q. If the cat sustains no damage, what is the probably that he will hit the kitchen
a. before the human
b. before the other resident cat which was asleep in the next room at the time of the incident.
Since cats do not have opposable thumbs and cannot open tins of Whiskas, why do you think the cat was so keen to get to the kitchen first?
What would be the likely effect on the psyche of the human, given that the passage where the impact occurred is dark and she 'didn't see the moggy coming'?
Would any language used during or shortly after the impact be of linguistic significance?
To which charitable organisations might you refer her for counselling/what medication might a doctor prescribe for shock.
Would YOU give THIS cat a home?
