Two men are sitting drinking in the bar at the top of the Empire State Building, when the first guy turns to the other one and says “You know, last week I discovered if you jump from the top of this building, by the time you fall to the 10th floor, the wind around the building is so intense it carries you back into the window.”


The Bartender just shakes his head in disapproval while wiping the bar, but says nothing.

The second guy says “What? Are you insane? There’s no way that could happen!” “No, it’s true” said the first guy, “let me prove it to you”.

He gets up from the bar, jumps over the balcony and plummets toward the street below. When he passes the 10th floor, the wind whips him in the window, and he takes the elevator back up to the bar.

The second guy is astonished. “You know, I saw that with my own eyes, but it must’ve been a fluke. That was scientifically impossible!”

“No, I’ll prove it again” says the first man as he jumps.


Again, just as his body hurtles towards the street, the wind whips him into the 10th floor window. He takes the elevator back to the bar.

Once upstairs, he successfully urges his dubious fellow drinker to try it.

“Well, what the heck,” the second guy says, “I’ve seen that it works, so I’ll try it!”

He jumps over the balcony and rapidly plunges downwards ….. his body hits the pavement with a loud “splat”.

Back upstairs, the bartender who had been silent the whole time turns to the first drinker, and shakes his head and says ……..


“You know, Superman, you’re a real bastard when you’re pissed.”
