If you drop a pumpkin from the top of a roof, what is the radius of the impact? The equation probably doesn't even make sense, but it's not supposed to; at least once a year, on Halloween, MIT students are encouraged to forget about the physics of falling objects and just drop pumpkins off of a roof. And leave it to your smartest classmates to do it right: frozen pumpkins are hurled (often to orchestration) off the Green Building, the tallest building in Cambridge. Nothing says "Happy Halloween" or "Infamous College Tradition" like a torrent of plummeting pumpkins. (http://www.hercampus.com)
