If Felix Baumgartner Was An Ink Droplet... Oct 16, 2012 16:38 by Matt Bird
I am a particularly sad individual, and my first thought upon seeing this historic event was “no one really thanks ink droplets for falling”.
They do this falling malarkey every time you print, yet they don’t get rewards or fame. They just get slammed into a piece of paper and filed away.
So was Felix overcelebrated? Ink under appreciated? I had to know!
Felix Baumgartner: 1.82 metres (estimate… seriously, try and find out how tall he is)
Ink droplet: 0.0001 metres (100 microns)
Felix Baumgartner: 39,044 metres
Ink droplet: 0.01 metres
Distance fallen relative to own height:
Felix Baumgartner: 21,350 Felixs
Ink droplet: 100 ink droplets
Blast. Felix’s accomplishments far outweigh that of the household printer. You win this time heroic adventurer, but the printer ink shall have its day! So, if Felix Baumgartner Was An Ink Droplet…? Well, printers would be MASSIVE.
