@NNoamfer: Actually, all of it would be in freefall, so it should all fall at roughly the same speed. In other words, the water in the bowl shouldn't fall any slower than the bowl it is in. There might be some sloshing from rotation and you`d have to slow it a bit gradually as opposed to a sudden stop, but as long as it isn`t too full, that shouldn`t be a problem.

I always thought that trick was lame because (A) catching the bucket doesn't seem really THAT hard, and (B) you actually DO have a good amount of time to let go of the broomstick and run out of the way before the bucket hits the floor.
