3 Million Views Competition


To celebrate our 3 millionth view today, we are running a competition for one lucky reader to win:

 a packet of beef Hula Hoops and a can of Lilt.

The question is:

If two people slowly lift each other off the ground at the same time, how long can they hover for together for before gravity kicks in and they both fall back to earth? 

The answer to the nearest second wins.

  1. It all depends on where the elephant hid the remote control for the TV. If it is behind the hovercraft, then 37 hours, 4 mins and 1 second (give or take a second).

  2. Fermanagh Blow In

    7.2 seconds. Unless it’s a Sunday and gravity only works a half day so it’d be a bit longer.


  3. R. Sebastian Eggert

    Now THIS is worth reading about!

    Shall we try this?

    love, D


  4. changed my mind it was 17 nanoseconds


  5. If the earth they are on is under water gravity will not be able to push them back down as much. Can you add water to the question? Is this a logical question? I don’t even know anybody who still drinks Lilt.
