Two men are drinking in a bar at the top of the Empire StateBuilding.
One turns to the other and says: "You know last week I discovered
that if you jump from the top of this building- by the time you fall to
the 10th floor, the winds around the building are so intense that they
carry you around the building and back into the window."

The 2nd Man says: "What are you a nut? There is no way in hell

1st Man: "No, I'll prove it again." and again he jumps and hurtles
toward the street where the 10th floor wind gently carries him
around the building and into the window. Once upstairs he urges his fellow
drinker to try it.
2nd Man: "Well, what the hell it works, I'll try it." So he jumps
over the balcony, plunges downward, passes the 11th, 10th, 9th, 8th floors,
and hits the sidewalk with a 'splat'.
Back upstairs the Bartender turns to the other drinker:
"You know Superman, you're a real asshole when you're drunk."
