Two men are sitting drinking at a bar at the top of the Empire
State Building, when the first man turns to the other and says
“You know, last week I discovered that if you jump from the top
of this building, the winds around the building are so intense

shakes his head in disapproval while wiping the bar.
The second guy says, “What, are you nuts? There’s no way that
