By Physics fail. - United States
Today, I finished up my physics project. I had to make some thing out of toothpicks and glue that will keep an egg from breaking when dropped 20 feet. It took me 10 hours to make it, but only took my dad 10 seconds to step on it and break it. It's due tomorrow. FML

I remember doing this project as well. I used a paper cup, cotton balls, paperclips, string, and a Wal-Mart bag. I made a parachute and the cotton balls were to resist shock.

It took me 15-30 minutes. Why'd it take you 10 hours?

I did it in second grade and dropped of the top of my school. I took a big foam ball, cut a hole in it and tied it to a helium balloon. The balloon didn't do much, but it looked cool and my egg was fine. Took me ten minutes.

The easiest way to do this is make a quick cube - like 1 tooth pick's length in measurement. And then, a minute before it is dropped, pour a litre or two of glue into it. sure it'll overflow, but the egg is gonna be a-ok.

A full grown adult male can deliver more force by stepping on something that an egg, toothpicks, and glue would falling 20ft, unless what he desigjed was huge, the force it was impact the ground with would be much less than a full grown adult male stepping on something

Your dad climbed up on the table and crushed your project?

He probably just wanted you to fail so you would stay home with him forever. He loves you!

YDI because it took you 10 hours to make the first one. We did the same thing back in my high school science class except we only had one class to make design and create the whole thing, and most of the groups successfully protected the egg. Its not that tough......unless you're retarded.

Its not an FML or a YDI. Fact of the matter is, it wouldn't have worked anyways. Those things never work. I hated doing that when I took physics (6 years ago :-)
