Those who understand complexity see this as "literal".

I shall make bold the parts I thought were hysterical.

3M was so sure their Security Glass was unbreakable, they put a large stack of cash behind it and shoved it in a bus stop. Actually, it was only $500 of real currency stacked on top of fake money, and people could only use their feet to try to break it. A security guard was present to make sure no one broke the rules and that people couldn't get to keep the money if they broke it.

Please allow me to iterate, "3M was so sure that their Security Glass was unbreakable". Just exactly how sure were they?  Seems to me they only slightly trusted it. Seems to me that you don't want this type of glass protecting anything that actually needs protecting.

Of course the lib author of the above commentary still somehow and mysteriously found this to be "impressive". You know- because of the 30 foot head start double-footed kick. Anyone know knows anything about human physiology knows that after 10 feet, you actually slow down so those extra 20 feet are really just for impressing friends at cocktail parties. Friends who don't understand physics/aren't really paying attention anyway.
