Have you ever sit on a seat of nails? Jason Lindsey aka “Mr. Science” with Hooked on Science says you can sit on a seat of nails if you utilize the right science.
n 50 Nails
n Step 1: Using the hammer, drive 50 nails evenly through the board at approximately 1/4th of an inch from each other.
n Step 2: Place the seat of nails on a chair. Carefully sit on the seat of nails distributing your weight onto each nail evenly.
When a person carefully sits on the seat of nails, evenly distributing his weight, each nail is only experiencing a small amount of his weight. That means the person sitting down on the seat of nails experiences no pain. Go to www.hookedonscience.org for more experiments that might get you and your family “Hooked on Science.”
