No matter how long the slinky is, the bottom of the slinky will stay still (hover) until the top reaches it. Even if the slinky is over 1000 feet long.
OMFG NEW EXPERIMENTS
HOW IS GRAVITY EVEN REAL
OKAY LET ME EXPLAIN YOU A THING
Gravity acts on every part of an object, that much is true. However, what’s going on here is so much more complicated than gravity. The spring compresses because its shape means the rings want to be together. I’m sure we all know Newton’s Third Law: for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction - that is to say, for every bit of gravitational force bringing the top of the Slinky down, there is an equal amount of tension force bringing the bottom of the Slinky up. The bottom of the Slinky doesn’t move because the force of the rings bringing themselves up to meet the ring above them pulls it up at a rate equal to that of gravity.
TLDR: the Slinky is just that cool.

I love Jim Carrey. I once met him in a 7/11, and I was getting a soda, I turned and saw it was him, and he saw I was going for a Doctor Pepper, so he said “Oh did you want one of these”, to which I stuttered out a yes and he grabbed all of them and said “too bad” and brought them up to the front. Then he bought his stuff and left the sodas there, and left. Almost immediately after, he ran back in and began putting the sodas back and paid for mine.This is what happens when Candians are let lose and try to prank people
Among the stupider things I found while hunting for gifs.
Obviously when you’re not a Vanderbiltian silver fox, the sun just shifts it’s lighting all the time to make you look the exact same in all situations. It’s cosmic affirmative action!
This is a good post by one of the creators of Avatar: The Last Airbender on color theory, and how color can look completely different depending on surrounding colors and context.
Uhh…that last image isn’t from the Aladdin film…It’s from a porn comic. It’s been cropped, in the full image he’s being blown by Hercules.
