What happens if you drop one in a vaccuum?

Gravity is what causes the slinky to collapse, not air friction, in a vacuum the lack of air resistance would mean the slinky would contract faster.

Did anyone else notice, in the first bit where he's standing holding the slinky, you can totally see his junk in those tight pants.

Looks like he had a good size slinky.

It's called elastic force, which in this case is stronger than the force of gravity. Like Altaru said, basic physics. Now if you want to see a really cool application of physics, specifically angular momentum, watch this.

That's awesome ... in the most simple terms, the bottom is being pulled *UP* by the spring at the same rate the slinky is falling as a whole, thus making the bottom remain in the same place.
