This business man goes up to a bar, located at the top of The Empire State
Building in New York. It looks like a nice Place. He takes a seat at the bar
next to another guy.
"This is a really a nice place. I've never been here before," The first guy
"Oh really?” the other replies, "it's also a very special Bar".
"Why is that?” the first guy asks.
"Well, you see that painting on the far wall? That's an, Original Van Gogh.
And this stool I'm sitting on was on the Titanic."
"Gee, that's amazing!” the first guy says.
"Not only that, but you see that window over there, the fourth One from the
right? Well, the wind does strange things outside that window. If you jump out
you'll fall only about 50 feet before an updraft catches you and you're pushed
back up."
"No way, that's impossible", the first guy replies.
"Not at all, take a look", the other man replies and walks over to the window,
followed closely by the first man. He Opens the window, climbs up on the sill,
and falls out. He drops 10... 20... 30... 40... 50 feet, come to a stop, and
whoosh! He comes right back up and floats back in through the window.
"See, its fun! You should try it", he says.
"Try it; I don't even believe I saw it!” the first man
"It's easy. Watch, I'll do it again". And with that, he falls out the window
again. He drops 10... 20... 30... 40... 50 feet. Once again, he comes to a
stop, and whoosh! He sails right Back up and floats safely through the window.
"Give it a try, it's a blast," he says.
"Well, what the heck, it does look like fun. I believe I will Give it a try",
the first man says. He climbs up on the Window sill and proceeds to fall out
the window. He falls 10... 20... 30... 40... 50... 60...
70...80...90...100 feet, and splat! He ends up on the sidewalk.
After watching the first man fall to his death, the other guy casually closes
the window and heads back to the bar. As he sits down and orders another drink.
The bartender arrives with the drink and says, "You know, Superman, you're a
real jerk when you're drunk!"
