What Happens When You Drop a Slinky?

I'm sure that none of you stay awake trying to answer that question. Not exactly a topic that comes up at dinner parties, is it? Still, after you watch this video and see what actually does happen, I think you'll be amazed.

Fortunately, science has an answer for the whys and wherefores. Yay, science!

Thanks for sharing, Myrna. I used to enjoy those Slinky commercials in the 1970s. I'm not allowed to post a web site here, so if you "Google Video" "slinky commercial 1970", you can see a bunch of ads.

BTW, it took me at least six tries to get my comment to be accepted. My comments disappeared whenever I clicked "preview" or "post comment".

Google (or at least blogger) must be having a bad day! Sorry.

So is the slinky song stuck in your head now? I know I'll be humming it for the rest of the day.

Oh, and Elaine? Thank you for hanging in there through 6 tries. You're a better and more persistent woman than I am.
