If you extend a Slinky out and drop it…. what do you think would happen? What about it you dropped it from a tall building? You’ve probably never thought about it, but something quite fascinating happens when you drop a slinky. Check out the first video below.

Now I bet you’re wondering what the hell is going on…. Am I right?! Well, instead of me trying to summarize the reasoning why the slinky doesn’t drop like a normal object, I’ll just direct you to the video below. Some of the explanations around the internet get pretty wordy and confusing, but this video below explains it quite well.

Pretty cool huh?! Did you expect the slinky to drop like that….. let us know below and don’t forget to share.
