I just want NatGeo to know that we were very disappointed that there isn't the second part of the experiment! I don't understand how you can show one half of a neat trick, and not the other! I am a science teacher, and I was excited to use your clips to show and demonstrate the principle of inertia to my students.  I thought this would be perfect, but YOU DON'T HAVE THE RESULT! How hard would it be?

That's true! You never show the best part of the experiment!!

Be original, MythBusters did this with a motorcycle 3-1/2 years ago (Season 9: Ep. 4- Tablecloth Chaos- 27 Oct 2010). Sorry to see that National Geographic; known for education, exploration and adventure; has stooped to doing lame party tricks.

Really?!!! All that hype and don't even show us? Way to get yourself blocked from my wall, NatGeo, been watching you for years.
