If you throw an egg against a wall, the egg will break. But if you throw it at the same speed into a sagging sheer, it may not break. Why?

because if something compresses upon impact the object will be slowing down as it compresses instead of an immediate jerking stop forcing all it's momentum

p.s. sorry if my explanation is a little screwy

what youj first do is cut open a black baby. It is imoortant it is a black baby because white babies don't bounce like their fathers.and then get complete ass cancer
