Play with speed, gravity and wind resistance.
A road trip to West Texas gave our family an opportunity to finally dive into the 50 Dangerous Things. True to form, I didn’t read the instructions stating that this dangerous thing was best experienced at 40mph. And, if I read the instructions I also would’ve known that we should’ve tried multiple kinds of perishables. Oh well, typical me. However, this offers an opportunity to revisit this dangerous thing, right?

Regretfully, Sam wasn’t that impressed. He was pretty disappointed that the banana (we tried this 2 times) followed the wind patterns and landed behind the car, not on the side of the road as anticipated. Upside: He knows more about aerodynamics now! I think an explosion would’ve elicited a more enthusiastic result… I have a feeling we can arrange that. Stay tuned.
