Don't think any physics laws were broken. It seems his forward momentum was slowed by the accident and the car slowed slightly when it hit the brakes, so his velocity relative to the velocity of the car must have been close to zero. Making landing on your feet on the car probably much easier than trying to land on… » 8/19/14 3:31pm Yesterday 3:31pm

These complaints are true in practically every field. Example: Good scientists and engineers are promoted to supervisory roles because they are good at their job and they accept because it's the best/easiest/fastest way to make more money.

My wife agrees, we now own… » 7/17/14 9:15am 7/17/14 9:15am

That jerk dog with 4 legs keep getting the stick though. It's like when the little brother has an video game controller and he thinks he's playing, but it's not plugged in. Let your brother play Paper Mario every once in awhile Hans!!! » 7/16/14 3:34pm 7/16/14 3:34pm
