The answer to last week’s Mental Floss challenge, Q: I am standing on a bare stone floor, holding a very fragile and brittle porcelain cup. I am certain however, that I can drop the cup more than a metre without it breaking. How?
A: If I hold the cup two metres off the ground it will fall as far as 1.99 metres without breaking. Inside the final centimetre of the fall though it will shatter into tiny pieces.
