[quote]"Somebody should make a show where some engineers or some smart people get together and figure out if this stuff can actually be done or not."

People actually did. It can be done easily, according to Newton`s (first?) Law of Motion.[/quote]

People actually did and it can`t be done because of friction between the cloth and the items on the table.

It can be done quite easily if you reduce the friction, e.g. by putting a layer of very smooth material between the cloth and the stuff on the table.

But cloth on wood with the stuff on the cloth? No.

Newton`s first law of motion is that objects don`t accelerate unless acted on by a force. It doesn`t apply here because the moving tablecloth exerts a force on the objects on it, so it accelerates them along the table in the direction it`s moving.

Too bad there is nothing on crappy TV. I guess those overpaid morons haven`t figured it out yet.

False, mythbusters just proved that its not possible to do this... If this isnt edited, they cheated and put a plastic layer on top of the sheet so that it doesnt touch the dishes

It must be a distinctly different job. Like most people, I go into work knowing that my job will involve pretty much the same thing it involved last week and last month and last year and that it will very likely be the same next week, next month and next year.

With MB, it`s like "So...we`ve found out you can be like James Bond and scuba dive in formal attire without creasing it...the job for the next day or two is to find out how many bees would be needed to fly away with this laptop."

@ k-two

Notice how, in your video, he has a much smaller table, a longer lead-off, and STILL loses a bottle and something else.

You`re have to be completely retarded to think it COULD have been real.

And I need to start watching Mythbusters again, I haven`t watched ANY tv besides Walking Dead in a while, though I used to love MB...

mythbusters did make it happen.. with a sheet of thin plastic between the dishes and the cloth so the dishes stayed on the plastic layer while the cloth was pulled underneath the plastic so there was no contact between the cloth and the stuff on the table.

Fake.. and old

madest: Actually, Mythbusters has already made an episode of this and found that most like a sheet of clear material was placed between the cloth and the dinner ware.

That was the only way they could get it to work.

This looks real to me and is completely plausible. I doubt mythbusters could prove it`s impossibility.

I never saw Mythbusters about it, but when I saw the big table, I knew it had to be fake. Too bad, because if it were real, it would be awesome.

I always assumed the oldest trick in the world was turned by an ancient prostitute. I stand corrected.

To do a real table cloth pull you have to be pulling downward as well. I guess if you got the bike up to a decent speed ahead of time (somehow) and gave it a bit of a downward trajectory then it would be in the realm of possibility. As it stand this was just lies and deceit.

And thanks to common sense and later on, the mythbusters, we know that it`s fake.
