Aladdin’s Magic Carpet Scene Proven Wrong Using Physics; Hooray For Ruined Childhoods!


This scene would have been pretty interesting if physics had its way with Aladdin and Jasmine.

According to Marco J from YouTube, the cartoon characters should have been ripped to shreds. Traveling from Cairo to Athens in one second would result in the creation of 99,000,000 Newtons; plenty of force to twist even the strongest street rat apart.

But what March forgot to consider was that magic cancels out inertia, momentum, time and every other law of physics you can come up with. Magic always wins. Childhood saved!
