06:26 In a fun way SmarterEveryDay explains the how and why, and includes some real stunt-cat dropping photographed with a high-speed camera. Archival footage of Cats in zero G trying to right themselves is very cool, and demonstrates the physics behind the phenomenon. As far as I can tell, no cats were harmed in the making of this video – though they seemed, at the very least, displeased.

    80% of cats are killed or seriously injured in a veterinary clinic because of these stupidities. Cats do not always fall on their feet, remove this video please! And cats are not objects…
