Taking the Plunge

One of the most interesting uses of the word plunge ever:

SPOKANE, Washington (Reuters) – A cow plunged from a 200-foot (61-metre) cliff onto the hood of a minivan on a highway in central Washington state, according to police.

Mr. Fu wonders if a cow gets the same thrilling sensation of falling, all a flutter inside as you hang weightless, with an ever increasing breezing blowing up from below.  It is like standing on a sidewalk grate with an exhaust fan below, only there is no grate.

Ah, the things to which Google links.  Try to have a discussion of string theory on Gmail without getting a good chuckle.

    Because the cow has four stomaches, would not the cow have four times the thrilling fluttery sensation of falling? Another question to ask is how much methane is released into the air when the cow makes his sudden stop at the bottom? And jdo the Hindus feel this sudden loss, as if the universe opened up and and the moo’s of 3 million cows were silenced?
    For all those out there who are “offended” by the last question….lighten up, it is just a joke. If you can’t poke fun at yourself and laugh along with others, then it is time to buy a new sense of humor.
