These penthouse windows, only open three inches. Hah ! health and safety that’s why, control no fresh air.

What goes through a three inch gap ? A slice of pastrami ? A peanut ? A peppermint – oh I have one in my pocket. Ooops it’s just popped through the gap.

Wheeee – watch it go, down down, down, down  –

a gravity sped bullet,  faster and faster – plummeting pieces of peppermint exploding over

pedestrians, pulverising into powder dusting the pavements.

That’s velocity for you.
