As if Miley didn’t get enough publicity over her trashy music video of Wrecking Ball, a scientist student has actually spent time and money on research to determine that Miley couldn’t truly physically be a wrecking ball. What? Is this a late April Fool’s joke? And a really bad one at that? Not according to DailyMail.co.uk.
A natural sciences student at The Centre for Interdisciplinary Science at University of Leicester by the name of David McDonaugh, or the Wrecking Ball Scientist as I will refer to him, actually carried out this study and titled it as “The viability of arriving like a wrecking ball.”
In this study, The Wrecking Ball Scientist determined that if Miley were to actually become a wrecking ball, she would have to travel over 316 miles per hour to cause the same kind of impact of a normal wrecking ball, which would possibly cause her death.
The Wrecking Ball Scientist, upon completion of his analysis, was quoted by DailyMail.co.uk, “Based on these findings, it is clear that a human being cannot possess the characteristics of a wrecking ball without sustaining significant injury, and other objects should be sought as an analogy.” Has this guy been dipping into the chemicals in the science lab?
Continuing in this very interesting study, The Wrecking Ball Scientist, per DailyMail.co.uk, concludes by saying, “A pop song that made the charts in late 2013 alludes to the idea of entering a given location analogous to a wrecking ball, raising questions over if such a feat is possible. Perhaps more significantly, the singer claims to have impacted both love and ostensibly the walls of someone’s house with similar momentum at some point, providing a somewhat unique case in studying the effects of shock on human beings.”
Is this the kind of research kids go to school for these days? And please tell me that our tax dollars aren’t funding these types of research. Hopefully, The Wrecking Ball Scientist will not follow suit in research with other songs and artists such as Elvis’ Hound Dog, the Commodores Brick House, Prince’s Little Red Corvette, or Elton John’s Candle In The Wind. That might just set The Wrecking Ball Scientist over the edge.
He may also find it interesting that according to TorontoSun.com, Miley’s Wrecking Ball music video has inspired an adult video parody. Yes, the riding of the wrecking ball, and the twerking have come together in one sleazy package as a parody in the form of porn. And we thought it couldn’t get any worse.
