big words, little brother

Tom (my younger brother) stays up all night studying.

He goes to help friends pin event flyers around Stanford campus.

There is one flyer left.

Tom decides to hang it on the post in the middle of a fountain.

To do this, he announces he will jump from the edge of the fountain to the post in the middle. His friends say it's impossible -- the distance is too great. Nay, says Tom! He'll just leap to the post, and they can pass him the flyer. He'll tape it up, and leap right back! It'll be simple, he says.

His friend senses a YouTube moment about to occur.

I recommend watching the first 30 seconds, and then skipping to the last 20 seconds.

Man, it's been months since Google bought Youtube, but GV's superior tech (in that it allows users to jump to parts of the video not yet loaded and restart buffering from there rather than requiring a full load of the video) hasn't been integrated in yet.

Jackass.

He could have damaged that nice fountain if the top bowl was pulled on a little harder.

Or it could have bonked him in the head and killed him.

Not too smart. He should be reprimanded at school for a stupid stunt like that.

A real smart problem solver would have considered the table from the git go.

Well, Stanford obviously deserves its reputation as an elite school.

What was that sound? Oh, its Donald Knuth typesetting his letter of resignation.

Yes, Tom is single. Are you between the ages of 9 and 30?

If he is strong enough, he should be able to reach back up, climb up to the top of the T, and jump back.
